pansin ko lang na mahirap gumawa ng IT sa Malaysia. Madaming pwede puntahan pero puro "small ticket items" if I may say so. Parang nasa Manila ka lang na naghahanap ng tourist spots. That being said, pupuntahan pa rin namin sya next year! I hope madami kami mapuntahan na di lang shopping :) Will back read and most probably post questions in the coming weeks/months. :) TIA, mga sis and sis phurple0515 :D

^ sinabi mo pa sis, nagkalat kasi e, parang Manila nga. 

by the way, KL has been ranked as 2nd top shopping countries in SE.  so be sure to really be here when it's the sale season para super enjoy niyo mag-shopping.

Hi I stayed in Malaysia for 1 week last October 8-15. I stayed in Petaling Jaya which is very near KL. All I can say is ang Malaysia ay pinagandang version ng Pilipinas. Like what the others said, medyo mahirap gumawa ng itinerary kasi magkakalayo ang mga lugar dahil sobrang lawak ng Malaysia. During my stay there I was forced to take a cab just to reach the MRT station because nasa residential area ako nagstay and karamihan ng mga tao sa KL naka kotse dahil mura ang sasakyan sa kanila lalo na at may sarili silang brand ng car which is yung Proton. I tried walking kaso malayo and mainit dahil pareho ng climate natin tsaka parang ikaw lang magisa sa kalsada ang naglalakad (a bit scary). Though pag nasa KL sentral ka na, no problem na ang paglalakad kasi business district na dun.

sa 7 days na stay ko sa MY, nakapunta ako sa Batu Caves, Petronas Twin towers, Bandar Utama(mall), Sunway Pyramid(mall), Midway Valley(mall), Petaling Street(China town) and Genting Higlands(Resorts World). Marami pa sana ako napuntahan kung di lang talaga magkakalayo yung mga lugar. Kung sa KL sentral siguro ako nagstay madali lang dahil mejo centralized naman ang transportation nila pero unlike SG and HK masmaraming lakarin at lipat ng sasakyan bago ka makarating sa isang lugar sa KL. Madalas mapapansin mo na dumadaan kayo sa highway or even expressway.

Magaganda yung malls sa KL. Ang sosy walang sinabi mga malls natin dito sa Pinas.

Mura mga bilihin sa MY. Mura din ang food almost the same as price ng food natin or even cheaper. Makakakain ka ng 1RM sa mga carinderia and around 10RM sa mga restaurants. 1RM is around 13 pesos.

Kung gusto nyo makamura talaga punta kayo sa Mydin malapit sa Petaling Street. Dun mura lahat para syang Divisoria mall siguro so maraming tao at bawal magdala ng bags sa loob ng mall kelangan iwan sa lockers nila which is frustrating to use because you need to use 1RM na coin eh bihira naman magbigay ng ganun sa MY.

Chocolates and pinakamura sa MY lalo Cadbury dahil dun ang factory non. 1 big bar ng Cadbury is only 100 pesos. Mura din ang pamasahe. usually around 1-2RM lang ang MRT at 1RM sa bus. Flag down ng taxi is 3RM.

Btw late lumabas ang araw sa MY at late rin lumubog so 7pm nagsstart pa lang lumubog ang araw.

^^^sis still_hoping, from Asia Jaya, baba ka ng KL sentral.  From KL sentral, lumipat ka ng KLIA Transit, Putrajaya ang stop.

^ sis maycon, actually sa mga malls me mga cadburry pero di ko alam kun mura ba or hindi, di ko alam price sa pinas e.  usually kasi me mga warehouse sales on chocolates pero ngayon wala.  sabi ng officemate ko, sa Kota Raya meron daw Indian store na mura mga chocolates pero mukhang papasok pa.  Pwede din siguro i-try sa Mydin na grocery sa Kota Raya.  Ewan lang kung meron don, di ko pa natry.  I would say sa Langkawi, hehe, kasi duty free ang chocolates at liquor don pero it needs another day for that one.

@maycon sa Mydin pinakamura chocolates. 6RM (around or less than 100 pesos) lang ang malaking Cadbury. sabi ng friend ko minsan pa nga 5RM lang may free pa na maliit na bar. Pag sa mga supermarkets sa malls nasa 10RM ang isang malaking bar so mura pa rin kumpara dito sa Pinas kasi mga 180 pesos ang Cadbury satin [textspeak!] malaking bar.

^ there are 2 sale season here in Kuala Lumpur.  the Mid Year sale is usually 2 months before Hari raya (so buong 2 mos yon, like this year was from June 15-Aug22).  Then there's the Year End Sale, so this year it is from Nov 10-Jan 2.

acdg. sa isang nabasa ko, it is RM65 for non-Malaysian, Rm50 for Malaysian.  Pero sis, it is far from Kuala Lumpur ha.  It is in Johor, same 'province' like Legoland.
