Kuala Lumpur : 3rd Day

Oct 24 - 3rd day of the trip

After taking night scene pics with the KLCC towers the night before, we planned to visit the towers again for pics in daytime and do some shopping. The towers still looked GREAT in daytime. Some tourists were already there trying their best to take the pics with the towers by their small DCs. The front garden of the towers is not big. We saw many people laying on the ground (in various interesting postures) with their cameras trying to take a "whole" picture covering the 2 towers and their friends. Under such circumstances, I noticed particularly that I was lucky to have bought this DC with a wide angle (^^), and I set the camera in "self-taking" mode and took a pic with my friend in front of the towers.

We didn’t go up to the mid-level bridge connecting the 2 towers, as we missed the first session (9 am) distribution of the free tickets. Never mind. We started window shopping from the highest floor where the Kinokuniya Book Store is located. I thought I could get myself some Japanese books here without going to Japan, but actually this Kinokuniya only offers English books only. There's a sign saying that the Japanese books are available inside another book store in ISETAN below. We didn't intend to buy anything at this mall, and things sold there aren't cheap though. (Frankly speaking I prefer shopping at "Festival Walk" in HK :P)

After a nice lunch with delicious pastas, cakes and tea, we moved to explore the city from KL Sentral as the starting point. We planned to move around until we suddenly found a bus to Mid-Valley. Of course we took the bus (for experience). There's another large shopping mall at Mid-Valley. We were already tired of seeing malls. We stayed there for an hour, and we moved to Jalan Bukit Bintang by monorail.

a0032771_16485450.jpgJalan Bukit Bintang is an area (rather than a street) full of restaurants, bars, and different shopping centres: Lot 10, Sungei Wang Plaza (atmosphere like Amoy Plaza), etc. Stores are different and things offer there are cheaper then those we saw at KLCC. But still, no intention to purchase anything. Instead, we enjoyed tea in a coffee shop until the sky became dark and the streets lighted up.

a0032771_16492821.jpgWe walked along Bukit Bintang. It was raining… On the way, my friend bought some T-shirts at Body Gloove, which were sold far more cheaper than in HK. We turned into a street (J. Alur) where lots of food stalls were opened at the 2 sides of the road. The food smelled good!! Again we found that actually we were starving. We ordered a dish of fried tiny oysters pancake with eggs, which was yummy! For the others, they looked not special to us at all cuz we have those in HK and Taiwan. :P

We started walking again. It was still raining… Along a street with lots of hotels, we discovered a local Indian restaurant offering Indian pancakes, curry, etc. I didn't want to have hot and spicy meals any more, but my friend insisted on having Indian pancakes (with curry sauce). We carried the food back to the hotel and ate while enjoying TV. The Indian pancakes tasted good, but too hot for me. Ahh... I should have bought myself something from the convenience store -_-#. For the past 2 days, we had been having hot or spicy food in the meals. I said a hundred times I didn't want that, but now, I had curry Indian pancakes. X_X At that time, I thought this was the worst dinner I had ever had.

I lost mood, and finally lost my temper that night (towards my friend and the food) :P. I called home afterwards, asking my mum to prepare much Chinese herb tea the next day so that I could drink when I got back home to heal the “hot engine”.
