Traveling is also part of discovering new eating places. This second part of my Kuala Lumpur food article continues with many more interesting dining places.

It is an absolutely great meaty meal at El Cerdo located on Changkat Bukit Bintang. Together with some friends, we sampled El Cerdo’s notable dish of suckling pig and other dishes like Iberico ribs, sausage platter and seafood paella.

The half size piglet is priced at RM188. The waiter gestured us to cut the piglet with a plate. Not only is it a memorable experience for us but the food also delighted our taste buds. The suckling piglet done with amazingly crispy skin and soft meat with melting fat had everyone asking for seconds.

Among the choices of desserts, we had the raspberry sherbet and the rum and raisin ice cream. The latter is far better of the two.

Our trips to Kuala Lumpur had us visiting many places, savoring the city’s food and staying at Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral. Recommended by friends Alison and Narelle, the hotel with a casual, hip vibe offers solid bed to help us sleep through the nights.

The hotel is a convenient place of accommodation, especially for those who do not have transport as it is located opposite the KL Sentral transportation hub.

The following day, we make our way to Bako National Park. Located at the tip of the Muara Sungai Tebas Peninsula, Bako is Sarawak’s oldest national park. We are ferried from the hotel to the Kampung Bako jetty where the National Park Office is located. After filling up some documents, we hop on a boat from the jetty to Bako National Park, with the Gunung Santubong in view.

We were up early the next morning and hit the road to Semenggoh Wildlife Center, situated within the boundaries of the Semenggoh Nature Reserve. The caring center set up, in hope of caring for the wild animals is especially famous for its orang utan rehabilitation programme.

The visit to this center is indeed an experience. We get to see the orang utan, also known as the ‘Man of the Forest’ in the feeding platform. The feeding time is between 9am and 10am & between 3pm and 3.30pm daily.

Drive all the way up to the cliffs edge of Jimbaran Bay and you will reach the high-end heavenly Ayana Resort and Spa.

I have been holidaying in the touristy Bali for one week to attend my son’s wedding. During that time, I was set up by a friend of mine to check into the award-winning five-star Ayana Resort and Spa. Close to many main attractions such as Kuta and Seminyak, the hotel with Balinese influences had my first visit brimming with great experience, hospitality and interesting culinary adventure.
