Amazing Race Malaysia: Day 4

Posted on the 02 May 2014 by Darci Catimpo @lady_emelye

march 8:

this is our last day in malaysia. for this day, we rented a taxi to take us a tour around in putrajaya and then take us to the airport for our flight back to manila.

we had our breakfast courtesy of the hotel. the buffet spread was almost the same as what was served in the first hotel that we stayed at. again, i had the pink guava juice. :)

after breakfast, we headed again to the old town coffee shop at the ground floor of our hotel building to get coffee and tea which we brought back to manila. we also ordered some drinks and kaya toast.

we then went back to our hotel room where we finished packing our things and got ready for the last leg of our malaysia trip. at noon, we checked out of the hotel and we had our driver/tour guide waiting for us. we then proceeded going to putrajaya.

from wikipedia: putrajaya is a planned city located 25km south of kuala lumpur, that serves as the federal administrative center of malaysia.

we went around the city to take a look at the different structures, buildings and landmarks of the place. it is really amazing how the city is well planned, including all the phases of construction and the offices that will be contained therein. if you need to do transactions that involve the government, you just need to go to this place and be done with it. there are also a lot of bridges and mosques which are inspired by modern art.

we decided to avail of the putrajaya cruise tour which will take us around the city aboard a boat. while waiting for the schedule of the boat, we first got the little boy his cake since this day is the actual day of his birth. :)

we then boarded the boat which took us around the city. the tour guide also offered some information and commentaries regarding the city's history and also of the various structures that we passed by. the trip was around 45 minutes.

after the tour, we then proceeded to the airport which is about 30 minutes away from putrajaya. we did the check-in, drop-off of our luggages and then waited for our airplane at the boarding gate.

during the flight home, we got my son a little stuffed airplane as a "gift" for him.

that is the end of our malaysia trip. we sure will be back to explore other parts of the country which we haven't seen yet. :D
