THE GREAT ESCAPE

Jalan Liku 8/1, Sekyen 8, Shah Alam.

My first stop was to Skytrex located at Taman Botani Negara, Shah Alam. There are over 20 high challenge elements at the lush Bukit Cahaya Agriculture Park. The are three different courses to choose from which will have you standing, climbing, walking, swinging, and zipping as high as 22 metres off the ground. I love challenging myself but as a first-timer here, we went for the moderate course which is less extreme –  the Big Thrill –  with 26 challenges.








All of us managed to finish the route! It was a really fun outdoor activity to do with friends. Overall, it was very enjoyable but it could also be a daunting experience for people with acrophobia. For myself, this wasn't even scary! The whole course was fun but I felt it ended a little too fast. Next time, I'll definitely go for more extreme challenges. But I have to say that this was one of the best challenges I’ve experienced.



I needed to recharge after my Sktytrex morning challenge so I stopped at a Caltex petrol station to refuel and buy some refreshments. Then, I went to Awesome Canteen located at Taman Paramount, Petaling Jaya, for brunch.

29 Jalan 20/13, Taman Paramount, Petaling Jaya. 

Awesome Canteen serves awesome gourmet burgers and other types of western food. The cafe was nicely decorated with vintage stuff and furniture, all made from recycled materials. We ordered the Paleo Burger, Beef Classic Burger, Banana Cake and also their famous Sweet Potato Fries. My favourite would have to be the Paleo Burger, Sweet Potato Fries and the Broccoli Banana. My awesome Sunday brunch!







Oh! Did I mention AWEGALLERY is right beside Awesome Canteen? It’s another thing you wouldn’t want to miss. (Can we include a short line or two on what AWEGALLERY is about?)

I listened to some really cool music during my journey, with the windows rolled down. Check out my playlist here:
1.) Roadrunner - The Modern Lovers
2.) The Distance - Cake
3.) Holiday Road - Lindsey Bucklingham
4.) You Should Know Where I'm Coming From - Banks
5.) Two Weeks - FKA Twigs
6.) Big Jet Plane - Angus & Julia Stone
7.) Stay with Me - Sam Smith
8.) Royal - Lorde
9.) Wonderwall - OASIS
10.) Happy - Pharrell Williams

11 Jalan 20/13, Taman Paramount, Petaling Jaya. 

Next up on my journey is BRATS, a new hot dog parlour at Taman Paramount located just beside Awesome Canteen. BRATS is only open for dinner from 6pm to 11pm and it's just about time for my dinner. I'm a meat-lover and their Mango & JalapeƱo hot dog and Poutine are my all-time favourites! Trust me, they serve the best hot dogs in town. Another thing I like about BRATS is the minimal interior design because I'm a fan of minimalism!






After a truly satisfying meal, I made a quick trip back home to get changed, relaxed for a bit and decided to take my sister to one of my favourite hangouts for drinks in Pudu, Barlai Bar. I chose a nice and quiet place to spend time with my sister so we could have a girl talk over some cocktails.




3, Jalan Sin Chew Kee, Bukit Bintang, 50150 Kuala Lumpur. 


As a blogger, sometimes I just want to escape from the hustle and bustle of KL without having to leave the city, so Barlai is definitely the spot for me. It is surprisingly cool here. My favourite drink is the Lychee Ginger Martini. If you're a martini person, try it out!


My journey is full of surprises. How about you? Don't forget to add a hashtag #fuelmycity and #Caltex on your journey and stand a chance to win a cool Caltex one-of-a-kind Fuel My City jacket. Guess what? You can check out other popular personalities on www.fuelmycity.com.my.
