Exploring KL March 2013 – KLCC Park

2 Comments

Our first place to explore was KLCC (Kuala Lumpur City Center) Park. From what I’ve read, this place is highly recommended to visit for children. It has a big playground and wading pool to make the children busy for at least 2 hours (while mommies can do some shopping in Suria Mall KLCC). Since I’m not a shopaholic, I decided to explore the park with lil boy for……hours!

If you’re staying in Bukit Bintang Area, you can go to KLCC through the bridge which linked Pavilion Mall with KLCC. Pavilion Mall is closed to Novotel Hotel Bukit Bintang. Just follow the signs at the Pavilion Mall to reach the bridge. It will only take 10 to 15 minutes walking. Just enjoy the surrounding view of KL from the bridge. The bridge is sheltered (from sun and rain), clean, and the are some security guards along the bridge, so it’s safe enough to walk here even at night.

Once you arrived at KLCC, there are many signs which will show you the location of the park. Once I opened the exit door of KLCC, I saw this:

It’s a huge park, very spacious with trees, grass fields, benches,  sheltered places, water  fountain, and of course playgrounds and pools.

Lil boy was trying hard to get cold water for drink. It was a very hot day so we were craving for cold water

KLCC Park

Hey, where is that playground???

So here comes the playground……………….. By the way, I also found out that playground in Malaysia is translated into: Taman Kanak-Kanak, which means kindergarten in Bahasa Indonesia. I wonder how they say kindergarten in Malay languange………

When I saw the playground, I suddenly remembered a song from our “Kids Songs DVD” which we used to like so much, and the title is “Water Water Everywhere……….”. And I can’t (even until now when I’m writing this post) stop singing this song in my mind, but this time I change the song into: “Playground Playground Everywhere……………..”

Why? Because this was what we saw when we arrived:

KLCC Playground

See………huge, big, spacious play areas with many things to play with. And these photos are just covered not half of the play areas. See another pictures below:

He couldn’t believe his eyes! Hahahaha……………Are all these things real? Playgrounds are terasures for lil boy

Another play areas. It wasn’t so crowded when we arrived, because the crowd gathered in the other area of the park

Hot….. hot……hot………

And it’s the wading pool………….good choice children!

Lil boy didn’t play for a long time in dry playground, because he couldn’t resist “the calling of the pool who asked him to join other children”, and he couldn’t wait to dip his feet and soak his body in the cool water. After all, it was a very hot day.

After 30 minutes of playing, it rained…………heavily! I felt like: it was a joke, right? Lightning and thunder and big rain in the middle of a very hot day??? Thank God the rain stopped after 30 minutes, and the sun was happily shining again (weird, isn’t it?) So, let’s go back to the pool everybody………………..!

Swimming

SwimmingAfter another two hours session of “splashin good times” in the water, he “reluctantly” willing to get out of the water, but once he did, the first thing that he said was this: “I’m super hungry”. Not to worry, just walk to KLCC and choose one of the many food stalls there. We chose Kenny Rogers Roasted and this lil boy ate  big portions of rice, seafood, mac and cheese, potatoes, soup, and bread. What a feast to end the day.

Hi there. I'm from Indonesia but now live quite far away from my home country. I love cooking for my family. I learned how to cook for the first time from my mom and I believe that mom's cooking is always the best, and I do hope that my son will feel the same too even though he grows up so fast. I love Indonesian food as I grew up with it, and I promise to myself that my son, although he doesn't live in Indonesia right now, will always like and enjoy authentic Indonesian food. I make this blog so that my family will always remember our togetherness and happy time that we had, are having, and will have when we eat together and have good memories about a mother's love through her dishes. Hopefully these recipes will help other people to make healthy home cooked dishes for their families.

  1. hi, it really attracted me with your picture, wonder is there any changing room or wash room? wish to bring my kids there.

    • Hi, there is a toilet than can be used as a washing and changing room near the wet playground area. But don’t expect it to be very clean or in superb condition, it is just decent enough for the kids to do the simple washing and change clothes. But it’s quite ok considering hundreds of people using the toilet everyday. Hope it helps.
