No pics of air hostess, they are professionals in the plane to make you comfortable, i respect them and their service.
I was just kidding,

I liked the way you view the flight attendents. Yes they are professionals.
we must respect them, not just them but also every other professional we meet e.g. Taxi Drivers, Waiters, etc etc. a bit of courtesy will go a long way to get the best servcie from them, more so when you are outside India.

@Ashish,
you left my "Initial" question unanswered. Is there sufficient time to change flights in a gap of 3 hours?

We reserved five triple bed superior room for five days.
The hotel exceeded our expectations.
I recommend this hotel to everyone.
Beware of fishing site of this hotel.

Next post, some time tomorrow.
I think you meant Phishing if not the other branch of hotel located on some beach.
Would be great if you could share some pics, the URL of the site and deal you got.

1]If your connecting flight is from LCCT, then there will be no problem but you have to hurry.
2]Typo mistakes are happening today from my side, i will get much needed rest.

Nice write up Ashish. The reflection in the photo looks better than the airfield . The picture of the coal based power plant looks straight out of Sim City. Surely it does not look real, does it??

Our kerala members can tell you what this means.

I noticed that spell error too. Advait. But it's fun! Pardon our Babu.
Ok. I woke up and see that you did reach KL in KL. So Gafoor really did drop you people in KL. Good.

And looking at the proton, I'm surprised to see that the truck didn't allow the proton to merge in to traffic!

Story continues---

Reached to hotel Bintang Warisan at @ 6:30 pm.

The Jalan Bukit Bintang was full of tourist, restaurants, shops, malls, massage centers.

The hotel itself is located right on the main road.
It is 10 storey award winning best budget heritage hotel in Malaysia.

Immediately after check in, we converted Indian currency into Malaysian currency.
We got very good rate of Rs 13.42 per Ringitt.
The money changer is right at the door of the hotel.

The rooms are far better compared to Indian hotels at same price range.
All people from my group are really happy with the hotel.
Hotel has attached restaurant.
The room price includes breakfast and coffee, tea.
Unfortunately, i had not clicked any pic of the hotel or room.
If anyone from my group have the pic, i will post it.


After quick shower, me and three other friends went to Jalan Alor, the famous food street in kl.
The street is right behind our hotel and it was just 2 min walk.

The street

Ashish, nice pictures. Good to see you made a note of taking some food pictures. Are more such pictures coming?

However, i am a bit surprised to see the interiors of this airline. It doesn't look that great, dont you think?

I mean those seat covers look like art leather hurriedly done up
