So after leaving our jobs, home and family back in Norn Iron in May, we spent 4 days stopping over in Kuala Lumpar on the way to Oz! Our time in KL, consisted mostly of chilling out, along with a bit of sightseeing. We visited the Petronas Towers, took a walk in the park nearby, drank cocktails at the rooftop bar at Traders hotel – Skybar and chilled by the pool, not to mention lots of sleeping 🙂
One evening we went to Dining in the Dark for dinner! Jen had came across this restaurant whilst on Tripadvisor and it was no1 in KL. We booked a table before we left home! We didn’t really know what to expect, we the menu was a secret, and all we knew was that you literally dine in the dark. When we arrived at the restaurant we sat in a waiting area and ordered some drinks, then the hostess came and brought a ice-breaker game which we had to do blindfolded! She gave us a tub of rice, in which there were a few paperclips hidden, and we had to pick out the paperclips whilst blindfolded! This was harder than you may think, and we had a good laugh at one another during the game! We were then paired up with another couple and introduced to our blind waiter for the night. We had to form a queue behind him & hold onto one another’s shoulders whilst he led us into the dining room! The room was pitch black, not a light in sight….and we had to eat a 3 course meal and drink here! It was an amazing experience, as we had no idea what we were eating, and you could hear the waiters clicking their fingers – we think this was their way of telling the others to watch out! All in all, a great experience which I would recommend as they have them in cities all over the world now!
Kuala Lumpar was a nice enough city, much less chaotic than we imagined. Worth a stopover but 2 days would be ample time! If you visit make sure to see the Petronas Towers which light up the skyline. We didn’t visit the Batu Caves which is apparently a must but will do next time!
