MALAYSIA TRULY ASIA

March 22, 2017

I got really excited when I got an invite from my good friend Pax Ipac for Air Asia’s Runway Ready launch. It’s gonna be my first time to visit Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and I immediately said YES without any reservations. Fast forward to the day of the trip, I was with Air Asia’s PR Manager and Travel Blogger Yen Dreyfus, fellow blogger x stylist Aisa Ipac and other media guests. We flew from Manila thru Air Asia  at 12:40PM and arrived at KLIA2 around 4:30PM.

Malaysia8Since our first day is basically a free day, I asked Pax to tour me around Kuala Lumpur and I can immerse myself better with Malaysia. We rode an uber from KLIA2 to KL Sentral which took us around 1 hour and cost us RMB 79. We recommend that you ride an uber or a grab car when you plan to head on to KL Sentral since it’s a bit cheaper than a taxi and way cheaper for a train ride.

Malaysia10Our first stop was the famous Petronas Twin Towers and believe me when I said we went all out just to take the perfect shot. It was really nice to finally tick this off my travel bucket list. After that we strolled around the area and checked on some retail stores. 

Malaysia11From AK Avenue, we rode a train to Petaling Street for some night market goodness and authentic Malaysian food. We came across this food place and decided to eat along the street so we can further experience how’s it to be like the locals here in KL.

Malaysia25We really felt full right after our meal so we decided to go back to our hotel via Grab Car (RMB 65 + 10 for toll). It was really fun touring around KL and I think I should visit them again soon and explore more of their famous sites.

It was a short and sweet trip but I totally enjoyed it. I can’t wait to go back!

MISS UNIVERSE 2016 PRELIMINARIES👑🇵🇭❤️

February 8, 2017

Had the privilege to watch the 65th Miss Universe’s preliminaries and dress rehearsals at the Mall of Asia Arena with my family and friends. It was something for the books that we got to take part (as part of the audience) in this momentous event. Allow me to share some photos that I took during the 2-day event. Most of these photos were already posted on my Instagram account (@itskellymedina).

Since this is sort of a “throwback” post, I wouldn’t be blabbering too much.

Of course, I wouldn’t want to miss a selfie with former Governor and LCS Group President, Mr.Chavit Singson.
