Long Weekend in Kuala Lumpur

Long Weekend in Kuala Lumpur

Instagram? What’s that?
— Mom

In case you're not following my hi-jinx on Instagram, let's get in a weekend recap.

Remote Year hosted a party at an expat bar called The Rabbit Hole. It was a great time to chat with and meet some of the other remotes (That's what everyone in the program calls themselves. It's better than the term participants I suppose.)

. . .

The next day I was in the mood for a lot of relaxation. So luckily my friend Faisal came to the rescue. He rented a suite at Face Suites. The suites have some incredible amenities including an insanely indulgent infinity pool. 

Labor Day came next and a group of us traveled to the Batu Caves. Located on a limestone outcrop just north of Kuala Lumpur in Selangor, the Batu Caves collectively comprises three main caves featuring a variety of temples and Hindu shrines.

Its main attraction is the large statue of the Hindu God at the entrance, besides a steep 272 climb up its steps to finally view the stunning skyline of KL.  

Monkeys get into their fair share of hi-jinks around the caves, and it is a popular spot for rock climbing.

From the top of the grand staircase, the city views of Kuala Lumpur or magnificent. The vastness of the caves are impossible for me to capture, but it reminded me a lot of caves in Southern Missouri. The Missouri spelunking scene is real; but giant gold-plated deities are pretty thin on the ground.
