Zuiko and a Birthday at Carcosa Seri Negara

Carcosa Seri Negara.

A beautiful lodge right at the heart of Kuala Lumpur, and be amazed of the lush greeneries surrounding the compound!

The interiors were captivating.

Last night was a special night. For both of us, and definitely for my lovely wife to celebrate her birthday. In actual fact, it was supposed to be last week; alas, little Imran was admitted to the hospital.

A romantic dinner? Nothing comes close to candlelit fine French cuisine.

Carcosa Seri Negara is a little hotel located on a hill surrounded by huge Angsanas. It's hard to phantom, but this hamlet is just a stone's throw away from my ultra-urban office!!

Based on the colonial residents back in the days of Sir Frank Swettenham, Carcosa is adorned with plush interiors with the nostalgic rustic charm. The dark but cosy ambiance ensures a private yet warm feeling while dining, with the waiters ever so ready for immediate attendance. Very exclusive indeed.

The architecture hides nothing of its past. The open columns and tall ceilings that are the hallmarks of colonial design are very apparent.

Such a nice atmosphere. Amazing. The food was just perfect for the occasion.

This is the place for special occasions. If you want to celebrate it with your loved ones, this is one place at the top of the charts.
