The Kuala Lumpur Journal Hotel

Everytime when I go and visit Kuala Lumpur, I will definitely choose to stay at the lively streets of Bukit Bintang area. Right after we came back from our Switzerland trip, we decided to overnight in Kuala Lumpur for two nights before heading back home to Kota Kinabalu. Luckily that we have decided to stay over for 2 nights instead of 1 cause our flight from Istanbul to Kuala Lumpur with Turkish Airlines was delayed for 6 hours. 

While browsing through few hotels to stay in Kuala Lumpur, this is where I discovered The Kuala Lumpur Journal Hotel (obviously from the social media). And the best part is that we hit the jackpot where we got to book this retro-inspired boutique hotel for less than RM200 per night from Klook

24-hour reception and cafeteria

Love this tagline "Eat Well, Travel Often"

Decorated with natural wooden elements, the 28 sqm room is stylishly furnished and equipped with ergonomic mattress and microfibre pillows. What blow our mind the moment we stepped in into the room was we're assigned with a room overlooking the monorail track through the large and high floor-to-ceiling windows.

Entering A New Chapter Of My Life - Motherhood

Referring to the title above, now you know the reason behind why I barely update my blog lately.

Born on 17 October 2023 [Weight 2.89kg with the height of 50cm] 

Yes, I'm officially a mother now. Both of my husband and I were beyond blessed on the arrival of our baby boy. Honestly to say, we, or should I say me wasn't have any high expectation on this pregnancy at all. Of course both of us wanted to have kid after married for 2 years but I didn't expect I was pregnant when I had 3 confirmed tickets last year. At the end, I had to burn all the confirmed tickets as my gynae said I wasn't fit to travel due to my health condition. Oh well, travel can wait right? 

So how's my current life being a newly mom? Intense, struggling, exhausted and lack of sleep - that pretty much sums our life after having our baby. After all, it's not an easy task and indeed a challenging one, especially for new parents just like us. Only for the first month where I was doing my confinement at the post-natal care centre, but right after that, both of us took care of the baby on our own without getting any help or involvement from the both side of our parents. We don't even hire any nanny, maid/helper nor caretaker.

Though it's pretty overwhelming and sometimes upsetting, this little "sonshine" does bring boundless of joy and immeasurable happiness to us. He fills our life with laughter and warmth and creates countless unforgettable moment together as a family of 3. Holding this tiny little one in our arm while watching him sleep will instantly melt our heart. Every little milestone of him has made us emotional and at the same time, fascinating to us.

Who will ever thought that both of my husband and I who used to love to travel so much will end up with raising a baby together, making milk, feeding him and changing the diaper every single day nowadays? Hahahaha...
