    The Vantage Point

    The Sanskrit word maya may mean illusion but rest assured, there’s nothing illusory about the cool comfort of Maya Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. With the glittering Petronas Twin Towers on one side and Kuala Lumpur Tower on the other, this is arguably the best seat in town to ogle the towers that have defined KL’s skyline.

    Living It Up at the Ritz

    Interest aroused by strains of jazz music, the gentle clinking of glasses and whispers of conversations coming from The Lobby Lounge, the Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur’s elegant dining room-cum-lounge, I peeked in to find well-shod ladies and gentlemen at tables laden with Sunday lunch and bottles of Laurent-Perrier champagne.

    No Fears, No Tears

    Knowing that air travel can be scary for kids, Captain Lim Khoy Hing explains what to expect when flying to put young travellers at ease.

    Colonial Magic

    As a young girl, I’d passed the old Majestic Hotel countless times and imagined what it must’ve been like in its heyday, the era of swing music, fedoras and white dinner jackets. This white Art Deco building had been the place to be and be seen back in the 30s and even right up till the 70s, before its lustre began to dim, and it was surpassed by newer hotels, and later, converted into an art gallery in the 80s.
