My Lazy Sunday in Kuala Lumpur

Taqtik International Manager, Paula Vernon regularly travels to Asia to meet with medical facilitators, hoteliers and surgeons. Her recent trip took her and Taqtik Client Manager Nikki Carlson to Malaysia, and she shares with us their experience in popular medical tourism destination Kuala Lumpur.
The Pavilion Shopping Center

Well I decided that my last Sunday here in KL I would share some of my favorite places with you.  Let’s start from a Saturday night with a walk over to the Food Court on the lower level at Pavilion Shopping Centre…. they were getting ready for Christmas….and this was only on one level!!! The food court on the lower level is absolutely filled with so many choices of different foods- Indian, Chinese, Penang Street Food, Teppanyaki, Malay, Japanese and so much more.  We decided on a yummy Japanese Restaurant, which is one of our favorites, so we ate sushi, tempura prawns and vegetables- delicious.

The Petronas Towers
Took a walk to the famous Identical  Petronas Towers for the night view – and a selfie.  The Petronas Towers, also known as the Petronas Twin Towers, are twin skyscrapers. According to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat’s official definition and ranking, they were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004.
Bukit Bintang
We woke on Sunday to this stunning view of the city from our apartment in the heart of Bukit Bintang, where you have the opportunity to shop at places like: Pavilion-Malaysia’s premier shopping experience,  Lot 10,-which has an amazing food court on the lower level and Berjaya Times Square– which has Hotels and a Theme Park with a roller coaster!! Now for a great bargain my personal favourite is Sungei Wang Plaza. On the third floor there is an amazing Vietnamese café with an amazing Vietnamese crispy pancake. Also, on the main entry floor there are many optometry shops where you can have your eyes tested, frames and lens for 50 MYR which is approximately $18 (AUD).
Chef Low Dinner on Sunday night…. Chef Low at Bangsar.  The food is delicious and popular with locals and tourists alike.  The food I love to eat here is the steamed brown rice, silken homemade tofu and the sticky sweet Mongolian style spareribs
Petaling Street Markets
A great way to finish Sunday is a trip to the famous Petaling Street Markets – aka Chinatown Markets.  Here you will find all kinds of things and it doesn’t come alive until the evening.  These are famous markets that tourists have been flocking to for many years.  The thrill is in the haggling over the price of what you are wanting to pay!

A little bit more info… if you are a current holder of a UK, USA, Canadian Australian or New Zealand you do not need a visa to travel to Malaysia.  The local currency is Malaysian Ringgit and the weather is always warm/hot.   Malaysia….. truly Asia.  I love coming to visit!

Top three most popular cosmetic surgery procedures

Your Gorgeous Getaways customer care team member Mel, is the first person you’ll speak to when you make an inquiry. At the coal face of GG operations Mel fields hundreds of inquiries, and provides our clients with the best advice and the best price available. We asked Mel what most people want to know when they contact us.

Every day at Gorgeous Getaways we receive numerous requests for Cosmetic Surgery Procedures at all of our exciting destinations, Malaysia, Thailand and Mexico. Our top three procedures requested would be a Breast Augmentation, Tummy Tuck and Face lift procedure. The Tummy Tuck would take out the number one spot.

Once you have chosen your procedure, we can assist you further with information on pricing, our fabulous destinations and any general questions you may have.  To move forward with your request for a Firm quote we will request specific personal information relating to your treatment chosen. Your quote will be provided to you once your medical information and photos have been assessed by our surgeons.

Breast Augmentation

A breast augmentation procedure enhances the size and shape of your breasts. It can also balance out a difference in the size of your breasts. During the procedure your surgeon will place a silicone implant behind breast tissue, or muscle. The overall goal is to have your breasts looking as natural as possible, while enlarging them to your desired size.


A face-lift procedure is generally chosen to help tighten loose skin and minimize those wrinkles that appear as we age around the Face and Neck area. It is most effective for the lower face (jowls and neck).

Tummy Tuck

A Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) procedure can have several different techniques used depending on your needs, this could be a Full Tummy Tuck, Extended Tummy Tuck or a Mini Tummy Tuck.  Sometimes this can be performed in conjunction with liposuction to help contour your body.

Gorgeous Getaways connects you with leading hospitals and specialist surgeons offering a wide range of cosmetic surgery choices. Talk to our customer care team to discuss your needs further, or search are available packages today!
