Under The Sea @ Aquaria KLCC

Getting to KL
Looking like the ambassador for Aeroline.

During my summer break, I decided to take BB to KLCC to visit the Aquarium. She has never been in there before, and neither have I, so it was another first time experience for both of us.

Okay, driving in KL is a challenge in itself. I love driving.Yes, I love driving.

But I hate hate hate... did I say I hate? Yes I hate driving in KL. See what I mean? The first time driving in KL, one chau ah ma even scolded me for driving so slow. Patience is virtue I'd tell her.

From Sunway, the idea was to drive to Taman Jaya where I could park my car and take the LRT to KLCC. Well what do you know, they (ppl in charge of the station) decided to close down the whole carpark to put some tractors there.

No parking even if we wanted to pay. Sigh. Fine.

Plan B.

Drive into the heart of KLCC. So, not having the slightest memory of how to get to KLCC, I took the risk of driving there anyway. Okay, from Subang, straight down the Federal Highway. Take the 3 o' clock at the underpass roundabout, follow the LRT line to Jalan Pudu, turn left to Jalan Hang Tuah and turn right just before Equatorial Hotel.

Wow, sometimes I impress even myself. I did not drive on that road since 2007. After just about 30 mins, we found the Petronas Twin Towers.
(They are not hard to spot actually, the only towers that look like chopsticks sticking out of the ground). We parked our car below Suria KLCC and headed for the aquarium.
The signature elevators at Suria KLCC.

Before that, we took a pitstop at the food arcade for a classic 1901 hotdog.
New York Chicken! My favourite!The old logo was banned due to political reasons I reckon.
Where better to chow down than the scenic KLCC Park

At Aquaria, there were student discounts for the both of us (Yayy!) Less than RM20 per person. I'll let the pictures do the talking.Welcome!Do you know that the Golden Arowana is related to kangaroos? They jump out of the water, up to 4 feet into the air!Lame specimen of a PieceanWhat do fish do in groups? Go to school.This is what you get when you cross a lion and a fish. Did not expect that did you? Hey, I'm serious, kiss this beautiful specimen and he will turn into your prince charming.
For visual instructions, look below:

Step 1: Kiss specimen

Step 2: Wait for it.

Wait for it...

Wait for it...

Wait for it...


Ah crap, it's just me. Next frog please..

Toilet break!

Taking a stroll around KL Convention Centre.

All that underwater life makes me hungry. Some seafood? We headed back to the food court to refuel. Seafood pasta!

敬爱的马来亚佛总理事先生Buddhist Maha Vihara, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia佛寺理事先生以及佛教信徒.

自从Yip Kum Fook (MCA Gombak Chairman)当任主席, 有预谋的迫走本地和尚(吉兰丹), 而遠聘缅甸和尚, 当任主持之后Samnak Sambodhi Thai Buddhist Temple No: 19 Jalan 38 Taman Desa Jaya, Kepong 52100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia(暹廟)就一直发生种种的是是非非, 以引起方民間議論纷纷.

其因是Yip Kum Fook (MCA Gombak Chairman)所领导的理事会, 勾结外耒的缅甸和尚, 以啇業経营, 不依佛法的精神办事, 只借宗教之名捞取权和私利所引起………. 最近又自行一套商业手法, 规定任和人, 若想出家当和尚修道者, 必先供给RM400大元, 否则免谈. 這种啇業手法, 已引起广大的信徒愤怒而不满.

Samnak Sambodhi Thai Buddhist Temple (暹廟)是佛总之联会, 而身佛堂之主席Yip Kum Fook (MCA Gombak Chairman)不以佛陀的教誨, 修心養性, 却反其道而行, 接着权势, 无悪不做, 三妻四妾, 骗财骗色, 破坏別人的家庭.....现在他的排聞满天飞, 不但给佛寺帶耒不好的名声, 也間接的耻辱佛教信仰者.

所从我们祈望马来亚佛总与Buddhist Maha Vihara, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia理事同仁, 给以关注, 共創義举, 维护佛法

此致, 并
祝安康, 工作愉快.

Please translate in Bahasa Malaysia and English, and send to everyone, Thanks
