These are photos from our recent business trip to Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. It was a business trip that I engaged in some work for 2 days. However, my husband and son accompanied me because it was the first overseas trip after the pandemic. I was not confident to travel alone 🙂 Though we didn’t visit around Kuala Lampur to see city attractions, we had enjoyable moments at night as we had dinner together. But, father and son enjoyed their time during day time. Anyway, here is our travelogue on our business trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Day 1: Singapore to Malaysia (Kuala Lampur)

Our flight time was evening as we worked during the day. We planned to fly after work and everything was ready.

We travelled by Scoot flight. It is a budget airline service and it is managed under the Singapore Airlines Group. We mostly concerned about our schedule and where we can fly in the evening. This airline service offered a flight schedule that fits us.


The flying time from Changi to Kuala Lampur was around 1 hour. Therefore, we were not that tired. From KLIA2 (Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2), we hired a taxi to our hotel.

We stayed at Berjaya Times Square hotel. When we reached the hotel, it was almost 9 pm. We were welcomed warmly and the check-in process was smooth. It was a beautiful hotel too.


Our room was spacious and I was happy with the reading/writing space as I had to get ready for the next day’s event.

Our stay at Berjaya Times Square hotel was pleasant and I will share a review post soon with more pictures. 🙂 We had dinner from a restaurant outside the hotel as we wanted to walk around although it was nighttime.

Day 2 : Kuala Lampur and Berjaya Times Square Mall

Our Day 2 started with a buffet breakfast at the hotel. After breakfast, I attended my event. At the end of the day, we shopped at Berjaya Times Square shopping mall which is in the same building.

Other than shopping, there are entertainment activities that visitors to the shopping mall can participate. But, we didn’t as we didn’t have time.


But, my son enjoyed his time in this shopping mall. He already spent his day with his father in this Berjaya Times Square shopping mall and in a few other places.

He couldn’t have a ride on this train which goes around the shopping mall. It was night and the train was parked.


But, he was happy looking at it and by posing for a photo 🙂

And, he found his way of entertaining to catch these stars.


The murals are my great findings at the Berjaya Times Square mall.

Murals from Kuala Lampur

Named ‘Our Murals, Our Culture’, the murals at Berjaya Times Square share the culture and life of Malaysia through great art pieces. Please check this post Murals at Berjaya Times Square Kuala Lumpur for more photos and details of the murals.

We had our dinner at Berjaya Times Square food court, ‘Taste of Asia’. In this food court, we found many stalls selling Asian dishes.

We ordered Nasi Goreng (Southeast Asian fried rice dish) and another rice dish together with tea.


Although it was a good meal, I didn’t really enjoy it. It can be due to tiredness. I really didn’t like when they served hot tea in such soft plastic cups. 🙂

Day 3 : Departure and coffee at Ipoh Vintage

After spending 2 nights in Kuala Lumpur, it is our 3rd day. It was still a work day for me with the task I had to attend to. We planned to leave the hotel at 6 pm after my work. Our flight was scheduled for the night around 8 pm from KLIA2.

We left Berjaya Times Square hotel at around 6pm. On our way to KLIA2, I enjoyed my time looking around. The skyscrapers and sky views are the best views on this journey. Please check the post, Malaysia, KL, Skyscrapers and Sky Views that I shared before with more photos of this trip.

Coffee at Ipoh Vintage

When we reached KLIA2, we had around 2 hours remaining for our flight. That made me happy because I couldn’t walk around much in KL. We bought some clothes in KLIA2 mall. (Gateway@klia2).

Although there were other places to enjoy coffee, I suggested my husband to have coffee at Ipoh Vintage.


Ipoh Vintage is a restaurant located at KLIA2, L3 and it features Ipoh authentic food. With its cozy 80’s atmosphere, we had a great time enjoying coffee with Kaya toast bread.

Before coffee, I had a great time looking at these vintage cups and teapots together with other vintage nostalgia. 🙂

Our food arrived. Kaya Toast is a signature sandwich with kaya jam and butter. It is sweet and good for having with a cup of coffee.

Their hand-brewed white coffee cocoa is a must-try at Ipoh Vintage. With a lightly charred scent and smooth taste, the coffee could satisfy my taste buds after a long working day.

Finally, it was time to check in for our flight.

I will end up this post with photos of my kid.

He was happy with his pikachu soft toy that my husband bought him from Berjaya Times Square mall. Therefore, in every photo, he wanted to show his Pikachu. I couldn’t avoid it. Finally, his photo at the KLIA2 was like this 🙂 It was the same with him when we bought him a happy face soft toy during our Bintan trip. 🙂

Although it was a business trip, we had a great time in Malaysia. We had good food and enjoyed our free time. We came back to Singapore with good memories. I will plan more activities on our next business trip to Malaysia. 🙂

  1. It’s good to mix business with pleasure with your family. How wonderful for all of you. Your son is most handsome.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  2. Thank you for taking me on your trip. It’s a beautiful area and I’m glad it went well. I would even try that coffee even though I never drink it (never have liked it); it sounds interesting with the cocoa.

  3. Thank you for sharing your trip to KL and photos with us at #weekendcoffeeshare. I’m glad everything went well and you all had a great time.

  4. I would like to catch the stars and climb the piano staircase. I would like to taste the kaya toast and the coffee served in lovely cup and saucers. I haven’t ever been to Malaysia. It is nice that you were able to take your husband and son on this business trip. Looks like they enjoyed their time together too.

  5. I haven’t been to Malaysia but one of our friends works for American Government foreign service and she spend quite a bit of time there. We were invited to visit, but didn’t, and now seeing your photos I wish we had. You look like you had a lovely trip, and I enjoyed reading about those foods you had. I hope you have a great T day and week ahead. hugs-Erika

  6. You are so beautiful and your son is just a cutie. Looks like you made the best of a working trip. The mall would be a place I would like. Even though you didn’t care for the rice it looks good. Hmmm tea in a plastic cup??? Thank you for sharing such a lovely post.

  7. It sounds you had a good trip even though you had to work during the day. It seems that shopping malls pretty much look the same everywhere. Good that people still wear their masks, I wish they would do that here.

  8. Sounds like you had a good trip. I would not like my hot beverage in a cold cup either-that must have been a mistake

  9. This looks like a wonderful short trip. Your son looks very happy, especially wth his new toy. Gladx you enjoyed being out and about again, thanks for sharing the photos! Valerie

  10. I love vintage items, especially tea sets. All the items from that vintage shop are so pretty! I like the tea cups that they served your drinks in. And the Asian food looks delicious! I could eat Asian all day.
    Loved seeing all the sites of Malaysia. I have never been there but would love to visit. That is nice that your family was able to go along with you.
    Happy Tea Day,

  11. What a fun trip it appears your son had. Business for you, but seems you found time to spend time together in that beautiful city. I loved the mural with the coke in it and those roosters on the tea cups. A fun looking tea pot, too. Since I’m a coffee drinker, I fell in love with the white coffee, which is how I drink mine. Lovely green and white service, too.

    Thanks for sharing your trip to Kuala Lumpur, which included your son’s photo with the train, the mural, and all the drink cups and mugs you shared for T this Tuesday, dear Amila.

  12. I have not been to Malaysia but i do like vintage items.. Biggest problem i have is they usually want too much money for those vintage items.. If its a quick trip i plan everything within an inch of its life.. lol Happy T day! hugs! deb

  13. Nice that you were able to take your family on your trip. Your son is so sweet. Pikachu brings back happy memories when my girlies were little and Pikachu was a favorite. Happy T Day
