Kuala Lumpur Family Getaway

What started out as a trip planned for me, Arnaud, and my parents turned into a big reunion with Tess. I invited her to come with us but knowing that she was living far away I didn’t think anything would come out of it. But then she surprised me by saying she got tickets to meet up with us in Kuala Lumpur after a trip to Dubai, and we decided to keep the whole thing under wraps. Imagine how surprised my parents were to see her!

We hadn’t been on a family vacation in quite a while so we made the most out of our few days in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Here are a list of the things we did during our three-day KL getaway.
