#CutiCutiMalaysia Kuala Lumpur NEW NORM - PART 1

Assalammualaikum and Hello everyone !

Last week.. Finally! Mark as my first vacation/ holiday after PKP. Walaupun percutian hanya di Kuala Lumpur (20-30 mins from my house) but it was great short escape. I really need to explore things now after being "lock-down" myself at home for about 3 months. Woww! But now, our government has announced that we have to live in a NEW NORM style. We have to practice safety measures and follow SOP provided it is for our own safety and health purpose. 

I would like to show my gratitude to Malaysia Tourism for inviting me to join this fun trip. Thank you for the opportunity given and now I gain more knowledge on the interesting places located at KL. Most places are new to me and I'm excited to share my experience with you guys. Hehee..

 Check-in EQ Hotel, Kuala Lumpur 

During MCO, I briefly talking about this hotel with my friend and I can't believe that I get to stay at this fancy hotel for this trip as my first Staycation after MCO. Alhamdulillah! Hehee.. I must say.. The service of this hotel is tiptop from the moment you arrived until you check-out.

EQ Hotel, Kuala Lumpur is now back operating as usual (after MCO) but of course with the new norm following SOP. This hotel located near the Petronas Twin Towers and walk from Menara Kuala Lumpur. Well, you can expect to see wonderful view from every angle when you stay here.

Not only they offer great service but they also provides extensive range of facilities from restaurant, a chic top-floor eatery, plus a warm lounge and a rooftop bar, outdoor pool, a spa and a gym, along with event space. But some area/ space are closed until our government announce it. If you drive here they also provided free parking for the guest.

 KL Birds Park 

Next, we get to explore KL Bird Park! To be honest, this is actually my first time coming to KL Bird Park eventhought I live in KL area. LOL! Hahhaa.. Thus, I'm pretty excited to explore this place. KL Bird Park has been a renowned eco-tourism destination a 20.9-acre (8.5 ha) public aviary situated right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. This is also one of popular tourist attraction so it is a must to come here!

They also practice safety measure for all visitor here. You have to scan bar code, check your body temperature and keep your social distance. 

Make sure you follow the SOP here


What so special in here is that most of the birds are let free in the aviary which closely resembles their natural habitat.   With this free-flight concept, birds are able to breed naturally in this unique environment. The park is divided into 4 zones; Zone 1 and 2 make up the free-flight zone; Zone 3 is the Hornbill Park and Zone 4 is where the birds are placed in separate cages and mini aviaries.

Look how excited we are seeing birds fly freely

The availability of numerous suitable nesting sites; bountiful sources of fallen leaves, branches and twigs makes KL Bird Park a highly conducive environment for breeding. Further proof of this would be the year after year of successful breeding seasons.

They have more than 3,000 birds representing more than 200 species in an enclosed aviary. 

About 90% are local birds and 10% were imported from countries such as Australia, China, Holland, Indonesia, New Guinea, Tanzania and Thailand.

You'll have an  exciting experience of watching colourful and melodic birds perching and winging about freely while relaxing in a natural and beautifully landscaped surrounding. We also jakun seeing rare birds flying and stay next to us.. eheee..
