Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Travel Vlog - Part 2 | Day 2 - 3 of our Training, Petronas Towers, KL Tower, and Atmosphere 360

Posting the 2nd part of Sky's vlog. On the 2nd Day of our corporate training in Malaysia, nothing much happened we were all super busy working long nights, preparing presentations and such. But on the 2nd night we had some time for ourselves and we decided to explore the areas near our hotel. We got lost at some parts of our exploring, you're gonna have to see it for yourselves in the video. 

During our little adventure,we got to check out KL tower and Petronas tower, took photos and walked around, it was fairly easy travelling by train, and most locals were helpful if you need directions.

About Petronas Towers;
Also known as the Petronas Twin Towers, it used to be the tallest building in the world from 1998 - 2004, and the most famous landmark in Malaysia.

At first I didn't have much opinion on the building but when I saw it up close at night with all its magical lights I cannot help but be mesmerized at its beauty. It's really one of the greatest structures in the world. You'll stand in awe of it when you see it in person. I'm glad we made this quick trip to the towers after all the chaotic things that happen in our training.

On the third day, we had a Team Building activity scheduled. It was supposed to be a Breakout Room sort of thing but it didn't push through so we just went bowling. I was a little disappointed about that. I was expecting something new and different.

After bowling we had time to prepare and dress up fancy shmancy because we were scheduled to go to KL Tower's Viewing deck and have a fancy shmancy dinner at Atmosphere 360.

About KL Tower;
This is a communications tower in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia and is the 7th tallest freestanding tower in the world. You could imagine the view is spectacular. Especially at night.

KL Tower Viewing Deck was pretty awesome. This is one of the tourist spots I wanted to go to in Malaysia so I was pretty happy I could cross this off my list. In the video, you could see how it's like being inside the viewing deck. After our tour of the viewing deck, we went to Atmosphere 360 for dinner.

About Atmosphere 360;
It is a restaurant situated 350m high inside the KL Tower. They serve local and international cuisine and offer panoramic views of Kuala Lumpur Skyline.
oh, and get this...it spins 360 degrees while you eat! it's insane. The floors move around like a merry go round. although very slowly, while you eat and enjoy the amazing view.

Remember that the night before we went here in Atmosphere 360 we stayed up all night exploring Malaysia and then we had to wake up early to attend training. We had very little sleep and I felt so light headed and dizzy during training, we barely ate too because we have to meet our deadlines. And I felt very sick to my stomach and then BAM we were gonna eat 350m high up on a spinning restaurant. WTF. I almost threw up. I felt so dizzy lol. But the view was worth it, I have to admit. although it's a bit sad I didn't get to eat as much as I wanted because the food was really good, or else I would've vomited and that's just no good in a business dinner. I just ate 3 sticks of chicken satay a few spoonfuls of rice and that's it. But I'm not kidding it was the best chicken satay I've ever tasted in my life. Hopefully I could go back in better health condition and enjoy the food.

That's it for the Travel Vlog Part 2. More videos coming in the next few days.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Sky's Vlog - Part 1 | Lost in Malaysia Truly Asia

My colleague, Sky found a new hobby in vlogging and it's only with great timing that I was there for one of her vlogs. We were sent to Kuala Lumpur Malaysia to attend a training for work, and Sky vlogged the whole experience.

Just for the record this is Sky's vlog that I'm only putting on my blog (with her permission) to share what I've been up to.I apologize to all the English speaking readers of this blog because we're all talking in Filipino and there aren't any translations.

This was the Day 1 of our trip which just shows us getting very very lost in the airport! haha! We haven't been there for less than an hour and we already could not find our way out. After we finally found our ride to our hotel, there was a little down time to check in, get settled down and prepare for the first night of our training.

In the training we don't know any of the people except the ones from manila office that we traveled with on this trip and it feels like I was a contestant for America's next top model haha I mentioned that in the vlog.

I'm still not used to having a camera on my face for long periods of time, explaining and talking to it while travelling around like how Sky does it, and I think my face says all that in the vlog. I'm awkward af but hopefully I'll get used to it. I don't have any plans on starting my own vlog right now because I much rather enjoy writing blogs and taking photos but i'll try to share all the vlogs that I starr in like this one.

Hope you enjoy Sky's vlog. If you wanna watch more of her videos you can subscribe to her YT channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/MinskyG

Life Lately Vol. 3

Because I've been gone so long, A Life Lately post is in order.
It's been more than a year and so many things have already happened in my life, it cannot possibly fit in just one post. I've decided to include only the most significant events.
Long time to blog! I realize now that I've been living my life way too fast to appreciate these little moments. Writing about them gives me time to process each event and document it here for when I want to look back on happy times.

Back To Basics

I have been MIA in the blogging world for the longest time. I'm not even sure if I know how to do this blogging thing anymore. But yesterday I logged into my blog for the first time in forever and I was very surprised that it has gotten a lot more engagement than I had previously. A lot of readers have left me comments and messages and I feel bad I responded so late and abandoned this whole thing. If my readers are still out there, I sorry I let you down. Let's try this whole blogging thing again shall we?

Boracay 2016 Travel Video

Sorry for the long hiatus, I haven't been around to blog lately. I have so much going on, I can't even begin to write. I'm not sure when i'll go back to writing again. But for now enjoy this travel video I made.

My family went to Boracay just a week ago for the long weekend. It was an impulsive decision. It's so insane. Mom was just like, hey lets go to Boracay for the holidays and then bam booked, packed, and ready we went.

I love that we went so fast. Also no delays of flights, everything went so smoothly its like a dream. I had a great time, It was my first time to paddle board and to try the paraw sailing.

Hope you like the video.
