From Singapore to Kuala Lumpur ;)

Last day in Singapore – first day/evening in KL…

Starting the day with breakfast at Toast Box. I really love Toast Box. I don’t know why, but I just love it.

And that was the moment I felt, that I didn’t want to leave this place 😦

We went to Sri Krishnan Temple for a friday pooja, before taking the flight from Changi Airport to KL.

In KL we quickly checked in at Verdant Hill Hotel, took a Grab to Jalan Masjid India for some vegetarian dinner. This area looks so creepy, and the people living there also told us to stay away from that place. We quickly went for some shopping, and never came back. Haha.

Here, masala thosai at Sangeetha Vegetarian Restaurant. I guess it’s the same branch as the Sangeetha restaurants in Tamil Nadu. But the food was absolutely good, and with good service.

We went for a quick shopping at Ajuntha Textiles. Bought some panjabis, sarees, vaeddis and some small kitchen stuff.

I must tell you, I already felt uneasy in KL, and was not super happy. Felt that Singapore is far better, and I still have that feeling. We talked with several tamil people in KL, that could tell us about high level discrimination 😦 So sad…

Note: When in KL, I highly recommend you to use Grab for transport. DON’T go for the local taxis. And beware of thieves everywhere!

Vegan in Paris – Shangri-La Hotel

Friday the 15th of June 2018, literally the second day in Paris was mostly spent with relaxation and walking around in La Défense. I also booked a table for afternoon tea at Shangri-La Hotel in Paris. Shangri-La is today a 5 star hotel and has a lounge and bar, Le Bar Botaniste that serves you finger food, quality Dilmah Ceylon Tea, juices, drinks and much more. While researching on vegetarian options in Paris, I found out that Le Bar Botaniste offers 100% vegan afternoon tea, which I really had to try. So we went for some afternoon tea at Shangri-La to enjoy a beautiful evening. Shangri-La Hotel is located at Avenue d’Iéna, close to Jardins du Trocadéro and only 20 min walk from Place de Charles de Gaulle and Arc de Triomphe d’Étoile.
