Following arriving in Kuala Lumpur, we listened to about the magic formula bars that dotted the metropolis and created a prepare to consider and learn as numerous as achievable – purely for research applications of study course (cough!).

We found ourselves ringing doorbells in bizarre alleyways, slipping by backpacker hostels with sleepy, confused, just-off-the-plane guests, stood in their place doorway, wanting to know why well dressed individuals have been wandering the corridors outside the house their space at 1 am. We climbed dark, spiral staircases – concealed at the again of busy dining establishments and this a person was the ideal of all…


From the outside, it appeared like a normal aged road store, with the only clue staying the name of the bar (PS150) sprayed in black graffiti paint on the aspect of the wall. We walked back and forth alongside the street, contemplating Google had presented us duff details just before we hesitantly attempted the doorway for the initial time.

From time to time, you would stroll a couple of clicks, only to be greeted with a mural so pale that it was tricky to discern what it initially was. But, most of the time it was effectively well worth it, and some have been extremely shut to a bar, so we had a excellent excuse to ‘cool off’ less than the admirers on the shaded verandas immediately after employing up some really serious shoe leather.
