As I have mentioned in an earlier post, I have found the “perfect” place to work on my laptop when I am in Kuala Lumpur. Coming from Ipoh, the capital city is my transit point to places where assignments take me.
Although I have relatives in KL, I prefer to be in the heart of things, so I plan my own stays, meals and fill up my time as and when required. And when I do have pockets of free time, I work on my laptop, which goes with me everywhere.
The Kuala Lumpur Journal Hotel, affectionately known as KL Journal, is the place that I go often these days to get my work done. If you know me, you would realise that I am all for convenience.
This boutique hotel, merely within a short walking distance from the Bukit Bintang Monorail Station AND Bukit Bintang MRT Station, is just ideal for me, and travellers alike who rely on public transport when in Kuala Lumpur.
It also recently dawned on me that not only do I spend a lot of productive time there, I also prefer to have my meals at the same venue. The reason is simple. Although I have heard that the cocktails there are to-die-for, as a teetotaller, these beverages definitely do not attract me.
Digital nomads understand that work for us never ends. There is no clock-in and clock-out time, and it is worse if our paymasters are running on a different time zone. So, when is our meal time? There is none, to be frank.
We just grab some food when there is a chance, without staying too far away from the laptop. God forbid that we shut it off! You may think that I am exaggerating but I am not. Undoubtedly, there are days when the work load is lighter than others.
Anyway, today I am sharing with you the food that I was served with one evening when I worked late at The KL Journal, at the hotel’s Terrace Bar & Grill. Do take note that these office facilities are available to in-house guests only, at no additional charge, except for F&B orders.
If you just want to rest and relax, similar to what I did after I have had enough of facing the laptop, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays are Ladies’ Night. Personally, as a non-drinker, every evening is just as interesting as the other at The KL Journal. Also, if music’s your thing, especially Indie, Open Mic sessions are on every Thursday. This is where you can discover some new talents.
So, now you know my preferred hangout place in Kuala Lumpur. Perhaps you can let me know when you are in the capital city and we can lepak together.
