THIS WAS FOR OUR FINAL TRIP TO DENTAL PRO.
DENTISTRY IN KL IS LESS THAN A 3RD OF THE COST
IN AUSTRALIA. THE ONLY WAY WE COULD AFFORD
TO GET TEETH IMPLANTS IN AUSTRALIA WOULD BE
TO WIN THE LOTTO. EVEN THEN, I WOULD STILL
COME TO KL FOR MY DENTAL CARE. THE SET UP
IS STATE OF THE ART AND WE ARE ALSO PICKED UP
AND DROPPED OFF AT OUR HOTEL... ALL INCLUDED
IN THE COST.

THANKS DENTAL PRO. MAYBE NEXT TIME WE'LL
COME BACK FOR SOME TEETH WHITENING.

THIS TIME WE CHOSE TO STAY AT THE MILLENNIUM HOTEL.
IT IS LOCATED RIGHT NEXT TO OUR FAVOURITE SHOPPING
CENTRE THE PAVILION IN BUKIT BINTANG AND ALSO OUR
FAVOURITE PUB - MALONES.

I REALLY LIKED THE CLUB LOUNGE HERE.
IT HAS A NICE OUTDOOR SITTING AREA WITH SUBDUED
LIGHTING AND A POND WITH FISH AND FOUNTAIN.
LOVE THE SOUND OF RUNNING WATER :) IT WAS ALSO A
NICE PLACE TO PEOPLE WATCH DOWN BELOW.

STYLO BARBER CHINATOWN

THE HIGHLIGHT OF THIS TRIP WAS BEING INVITED TO A VT WEDDING.
THIS IS THE SECOND WEDDING WE HAVE ATTENDED FOR ONE OF
OUR VIRTUALTOURIST FRIENDS. IT'S A SHAME VT WAS SHUT DOWN
BY TRIP ADVISOR. WE WERE SUCH A WARM FRIENDLY COMMUNITY.
I HOPE THAT WE CAN CONTINUE THAT WARM RELATIONSHIP ON TP.

ANYWAY, I TOLD HUBBY THAT HE NEEDED TO LOSE HIS UNRULY
BEARD AND OUR FRIEND MAY SUE AGREED. SO MAY SUE
SUGGESTED THAT WE VISIT A BARBER.

STYLO BARBER LOCATED OPPOSITE CHINATOWN IS NOT JUST ANY
BARBER. IT IS ACTUALLY THE OLDEST BARBER SHOP IN KL. IT HAS
BEEN RUNNING IN THE FAMILY SINCE 1937. CHECK OUT THE
HISTORY IN THE LINK ABOVE.

ANYWAY, HERE WE ARE IN STYLO FOR THE BIG BEARD SHAVE.
THE BARBER HAD TO ASK A COUPLE OF TIMES IF HUBBY WAS
SURE THAT HE WANTED TO REMOVE THAT AWESOME BEARD.
AWESOME?.... REALLY?...
MAY SUE AND I YELLED YES! REMOVE IT IN UNISON :)

THE WEDDING - MEI LENG AND CHARLES

MEI LENG LOOKED ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. UNFORTUNATELY
THE PHOTOS I TOOK WERE NOT VERY GOOD. MY POINT AND
SHOOT CAMERA WASN'T FOCUSING PROPERLY.

HUBBY AND I FELT VERY PRIVILEGED TO HAVE BEEN INVITED.
WE MET MEI LENG AND CHARLES A COUPLE OF YEARS
EARLIER WHEN THEY CAME TO PERTH FOR A VISIT.

SWINE CAFE AND SHUCKED OYSTERS BAR

IF YOU HAVE READ MY PREVIOUS BLOGS, YOU WILL KNOW ALL ABOUT
THIS. BUT FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVEN'T, THE SWINE CAFE AND
SHUCKED OYSTERS BAR ARE LOCATED ON THE LOWER GROUND LEVEL
OF PUBLICA SHOPPING CENTRE.

THIS IS A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE FOR US BECAUSE THEY ARE RIGHT IN
THE MIDDLE OF A MAJOR GROCERY SHOP. YEP... FOR YOU FELLOW
AUSSIES.... IMAGINE WALKING INTO WOLLIES OR COLES TO GO TO
A RESTAURANT....? IMAGINE ALSO BEING ABLE TO BUY BYO IN THE
SAME SHOP.... IMAGINE BEING ABLE TO SIT AT AN OYSTER BAR IN
THE MIDDLE OF COLES AND EAT FRESH SHUCKED OYSTERS WASHED
DOWN WITH A COLDIE PURCHASED IN THE SAME GROCERY SHOP?!!
BLINKIN' AWESOME!! :)

How lovely to go to a VT wedding :) Just one example of our special community :)

by ToonSarah

Thanks mate. Hope we can continue the spirit here :)

Hi Ann, The barber did a great job with Hubby's beard!

I can understand the dental cost, 40 years ago I had my jaw broken in 5 places playing rugby. I had the teeth implants done over 4 years, could not afford replacement immediately.

We were in KL again March'16,stayed 5 minutes walk from THE PAVILION IN BUKIT BINTANG, but not 5 star like you!

by Mikebb

Heya Mike. Goodness... glad my boys are gamers and didn't play footie. You poor thing mate. I have always said that we should pay a bit more in medicare and include heavily subsidised dental work. So sorry Australia... I'll take my money overseas.
Haha yes we do like a bit of luxury these days :)
If you ever want a good driver in KL mate then let me know and I will message you Patrick's details.
Cheers
Ann xx
