This is a long overdue post, which I am finally putting ”in print”, especially for those who asked about our executive bus experience when I tweeted about it months ago.
We have tried traveling from Singapore to Malaysia by air which was a breeze at 30-minute flight. While in Kuala Lumpur, we were reoriented (I had a first glimpse through KG’s post) by the hotel staff that trailing through the executive buses seems more attractive. Hence, from Malaysia back to Singapore, we jumped in it. We took the 18-seater (3 x 6) Five Stars bus and hardly believed the comfort it offered. It is decent, homey, armed with entertainment (like the in-flight) system, and has more leg room than the economy flights. While I insinuate that it was like being in a plane, you will not see the clouds up close but the refreshing views of Malaysia instead.
(I am not sure if I mentioned in any of my Malaysia travelogues that most of its views and corners are very much like the Philippines’.)

Thanks for bearing with my national sentiments shared through my two preceding posts. We are back to “regular programming”. I am concluding my Malaysia-related posts with its famous landmark, the pretty Petronas Towers.

My preceding post about Bukit Bintang might have led you to think that I did a lot of shopping. However, that scenario/possibility remained just like that. The recent trip to Singapore and Malaysia was actually meant to just enjoying the place, though I was open to spending a little on shopping. Maybe I have successfully reversed psyched myself that I did not buy much and if there were few, most were not even for myself. Yehey, my “the-stuff-that-I-really-need-are-free” and “the best-souvenirs-will-be-my-photos-and-memories-beyond-forever” pysche helped. Haha. Anyway, here are some of the things that I was not able to resist:
