On my last day in Kuala Lumpur, April 23, flying back to Manila the next day, IDEAS
CEO and friend Wan Saiful Wan Jan, brought me and fellow panel speaker Prof. Cris Lingle, to this very beautiful restaurant in a suburb of KL, the Tamarind Springs
. IDEAS hard working staff Yogi and Amir joined us. It was after our panel workshop at the ASEAN People's Forum (APF) 2015, then a visit at IDEAS office.
It is wide , rolling and spacious, surrounded by many big trees. The place is in a high-end suburban residential area of KL. From the carpark area, one must walk about 60 meters to the resto proper. Nice water fountain.
With many freshwater turtles, cool.
A golf course below the resto.
Some of the big trees on one side of the restaurant.
From where we sat on the 2nd floor, this swimming pool is visible.
But it seems no one is using or swimming in this pool, moss and small fishes inhabit the pool. This view is opposite where I took the photo above.
No need for air-con, just a silent ceiling fan.
The bar. Buddha in red lights.
I forgot to take photos of our food, but it was sooooo delicious. I was not feeling well that afternoon actually. After slurping the soup, it was like magic, I immediately felt better. So I took more soup and the yummy fish.
This pathway from the carpark to the resto is lighted by those small scented candles at dawn until evening. Here the candles were already laid. Really nice and cool place.
Thanks again Wan, Yogi and Amir, for that great and memorable panel discussion then dinner.
