|Hidayah, my bike, ready for the trip.|
That night I packed my items needed and the next day, I left from aunts house in Tampines. After some hugs and exchanging our goodbyes, I left for Woodlands Checkpoint. After a long wait to clear Singapore immigration, I was on no-man's land before proceeding to my motherland, Malaysia. After clearing Malaysian immigrations, I was on my way. Only to have stopped momentarily at a nearby Shell Gas Station along Jalan Skudai due to rain.

First Stop: Negeri Melaka

|The best roti canai in all of Melaka.|

|At Restoran Jembatan Ayer Keroh R&R.|
|Chicken Coney meal at A&W.|
I made a stop at Restoran Jembatan Ayer Keroh R&R to have a meal of A&W there. I also did a quick engine oil check and topped off some as it was below the suitable level. The next stop was at Senawang R&R.

As I entered city limits, I finally achieved my destination. After going through heavy traffic at Jalan Loke Yew, I made my way to Dataran Merdeka. Followed by a commemorative photo in front of the historic landmark, I made my way to my hotel at KL Sentral.
Destination Achieved: Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
|My arrival at Kuala Lumpur, Dataran Merdeka.|
|Much much better than the hotel at Melaka.|
|But the view.... not so much....|
Despite the horrible view and the upgrading of the building opposite the hotel, it wasn't really that noisy and I wasn't affected by it during my stay at all. Wi-fi connection is also exceptional and I'm always getting great signal. I later met Zar that evening at Dataran Merdeka. After some catching up, we proceeded to fetch his wife. That was when I was overwhelmed by the evening KL rush hour traffic.

I spent some time with Zar that night and we discussed on what we shall do during our stay in KL. Zar actually was supposed to return to Singapore on my day of arrival but extended his stay for me. I truly appreciate the gesture and his kindness for being a friend in need.

Next Destination: Air Terjun Sungai Gabai

The water was really really cold. So I didn't really submerge myself while Zar was having the time of his life. We talked and relaxed as the flowing river water refreshed our bodies and purified our skin.
