[AD] A New Wonderland

Every time i go to an airport, i feel like i’m walking on a sentence without full stop.

Looking at so many different people flying to places all around the world, it hits me that the word ‘possibilities’ should always come with the word – endless.

This world is so big; nothing should stop you from doing anything, or going wherever you want to go for as long as you live.

That is why i love the airport. It’s where you’ll find me if i ever breakup with someone. i buy an air ticket, fly, travel and come back as a newer, stronger person.

This time around, i learnt something different about airports. i always thought of it as a cold place to catch flights, plus the check-in / waiting process is always a pain in the a** especially when you’re flying alone.

But with my *new* discovery, i don’t even need my iPod anymore!

One fine day, i went to KLIA for a wonderful shopping experience. It is honestly, one of the best shopping i’ve done so far.

And oh, i also got to know a new friend,

Wondered around the sliced up cylinder for a bit, reading up interesting facts on Malaysia Airports,

i took the train to KLIA Satellite Building for more shopping. This is where my visitor pass comes into play. Obviously if you’re flying, all you need is simple – your ticket and passport.

i enjoyed every minute spent @ the airport, even on the train. lol

Checked into Airside Transit Hotel along aisle C5.

Rest and freshened up a lil’ before i resumed my Shopping Pt.2!

Had another healthy meal @ Nooodles, with a superb view in front of me…

Changed into my sexc lace dress and head to the Jungle Boardwalk.

IMG_9074

To those of you who missed my first post on this, there is a jungle + waterfall in the middle of KLIA! Do you know that?

i’ve got some comments from readers and Facebook fans saying that i’m pulling their legs. lol, no no.. Here is a video for you to prove that i’m SERIOUS :

After a refreshing, breezy walk into the greens, it’s time for a good spa / massage. i found one hidden upstairs, just right next to Starbucks, and had the massage of my life @ AyerSpa.

IMG_9121

Yes that’s right! Let your hair down; rest, relax, and reflex! :D

IMG_9130

This place is as royal as the massage itself. i miss it already.

IMG_9128

Definitely felt like a million dollar babe after ^_^

IMG_9151

Went back to my room 114 and continued blogging.

IMG_9166

Head to Satay Club for some drinks.

IMG_9167

Too bad i was alone, or it would be so superfun!!! i wished i had a friend ova’.

IMG_9169

As for dinner, i had a delicious chicken mushroom pie from Do Me. i mean, Dome.  XD

IMG_9170

Wonder what’s inside???

IMG_9173

Steam! Ahahahaha///

Hearty, hearty meal with the companion of my favourite Chai Latte.

To end the day, i did some window shopping but ended up buying Duty Free cosmetics FTW!!! (Lancome’s eyebrow pencil with brush & Photogenic Lumessence foundation)

IMG_9175

Feeling guilty for spending above a thousand bucks, i went back to my room to enjoy the simpler things in life – like looking at aeroplanes parking outside my window ^^

IMG_9174

And another airplane. i bet you can’t get this anywhere but HERE at the transit hotel.

The next day, i ‘attacked’ LCCT.

IMG_9235

Took a train + limo and arrived around lunch time.

IMG_9248

There are so many F&B outlets here, some of them i never noticed like this one behind Taste of Asia – the Passage thru India restaurant. Am i the only one who’s ignorant here?

Now we all know better. There are so many fun things one can do at the airport :

  • Explore and dine at new F&B outlets
  • Do DUTY FREE shopping; where things are so much cheaper to purchase compared to shopping malls
  • Take a walk into the forest and immerse yourself with the sight of a magnificent waterfall (entrance is FREE!)
  • Rest / sleep during transits @ the Airside Transit Hotel
