    Not Recommended

    by

    I won't recommend this for misleading me that their single room was an air-conditioned room. Besides, it's and old wooden house, maybe the reason why they don't have a picture in the net; the second floor has a wooden floor that you can almost hear the footsteps of the guests upstairs, even at midnight and wee hours. Another thing is the free internet access, when I got there, they showed me a computer that's not working and said that you need to bring your own laptop.

Hi,

what is the elongation of PD? If you mean it as Perisai Diri, maybe you can go to their website and look for their international training branch.
Cheers.

Re: Silat PD training in KL

If you are referring to Silat Perisai Diri as SilatPD, you are looking at the wrong place.

Silat Perisai Diri is part of Indonesian Pencak Silat, which is different than Silat Melayu (Originally practices in Southern Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei and Champa People in Vietnam and Cambodia, but brought forward to overseas).

If you watch History Channel's program call Human Weapon, Jason Chambers and Bill Duff trained in four styles of silat Melayu (lian padukan, seni gayong, keris lok-9, and silat harimau). For this, you can easily learn in any of the above country especially Malaysia, but not in Indonesia.

But if you like Pencak Silat in Fight Quest of Discovery Channel hosts by Doug Anderson and Jimmy Smith, which is similar to Perisai Diri, you have to go to Indonesia for that.

You can google Silat Melayu or Pencak Silat to learn more. If you are ready for Silat Melayu, we can help you to get into the program here or not far from KL. I know some place that do "Homestay" program where you are not only train at the Silat Melayu center, but sleep, eat and do chores as required to be Pendekar.

Travel Tips for Kuala Lumpur

Travel Experience

by johnkris

The first visit obviously will be to the popular destination the Petronas Towers. I have visited it at the night its really stunning at night. You can reach here (called KLCC) by Train from anywhere in KL. Transport is cheap here compared to other destinations. A full day train ticket costs you 11RNG, the trains are neat & clean & air conditioned. The taxi's though metered not used (Ask the locals or the hotel for the approx charge to your destination). You have to reach the towers in the morning at 5AM and wait in the already formed long queues for the ticket to walk on the tower bridge (the ticket is free of cost), if you are lucky you will get the ticket with the time when you have to visit the towers for a walk (I was not able to make it). The serembin St just opposite to the towers is where all the night life springs. The clubs are open at around 6PM & close at 1AM during weekdays & at 3AM during weekends. Be aware of the too polite local girls at the club, they do not talk to you because you appear to be handsome to them. All the clubs charge a cover fee of 30RNG with a free local beer for entrace. Drinks are expensive than other places. Beach club is a popular among the tourists. Koyola which is about 3units ahead on the same street is now catching up with Beach club. Other places in KL includes the Bird park & deer park they are very close to each other. You can taxi to the Bird park and visit the surrounding parks & the hisbiscus garden, national mosque, lake garden (Walking around these places comfortably will take approx. 3hrs and you will walk around 5-6KM in total). Deer parks are not opened when I have visited & there's no one to know why. If you walking into the bird park allow another 2hrs as the park area is large and its not cheap for a quick visit (costs RNG35). The country though with fairly large muslim population is very liberal and you dont find any radical groups anywhere and the mosques are open for tourists to walk in and even for photography. Lonely Weekend nights are not too safe for street walk, so better avoid it or be in a group. Most of the people are living a standard life. I have not seen many hawkers or beggars on the roads (I have covered 60% of the KL area by train to check the local life). Local branded cars such as "Proton" are around 25,000RNG and there is a 300% tax on the foreign cars, a mercedes or a toyota costs around RNG120000. About Shopping, I have not found it cheaper than any other place if purchasing a Branded products. Laptops are in the range of RNG1200 - RNG5000 in the shops. A decent lunch/dinner costs around RNG25. If you dine at a take away or shopping malls it costs around RNG10. One observation to be made, warm is a drink in KL costs you RNG1. It costs you around RNG2000 to lead a self sufficient family life & average salaries other than IT are around the same.

If you have more than a day its worth to visit the city of Putrajaya. The hotel tour costs around RNG120 for 3.5hrs tour frm KL. I have checked the map and hired a taxi myself and it costed me RNG80 for total tour (The driver even took good pics of mine as well for which I tipped him RNG10).Its 30mins drive from KL. And about the city, its a new city still under construction to move all the Govt. offices from KL. The city is very well planned & very beautiful. The prime minister's is on the top level of the PM's building in the picture from which all of the Putrajaya is visible. Also, there is a restriction about the color's that can be used to paint the houses in the city. If you have visited Canberra in Australia, the city plan is similar built for the same purpose as Canberra that is to move Govt. offices from the busy cities.

Dataran Merdeka, Sultan Abdul...

by mofa76

Dataran Merdeka, Sultan Abdul Samad Building, Petronas Twin Tower, 24 hrs food stalls in Bangsar and Uptown, Central Market, Petaling Street and many more!!! Geez, how I miss these places... Night drive in the city, including visits to Jalan Bukit Bintang.

Well, no-one who comes to KL...

by shellseeker

Well, no-one who comes to KL can miss the Petronas Twin Towers. The world famous tallest buildings on the planet are a sight which is visible from almost every corner of the city. The twin building is rising some 450 m into the humid tropical and usually hazy skies over KL. They are home to the state owned oil production company called Petronas. Around the company's complex there is a huge hall (KLCC), a concert hall, cinemas, a very nice park, hotels, restaurants, open-air-cafès, etc. One of my nicest meomories I keep in mind are the many evenings I have spent in front of KLCC at the café 'Dôme' enjoying the heat and the humidity of the day or evening and of course a cup of good European-style coffee...
