Kuala Lumpur & Bandar Sunway D2 # Malaysia

Good Morning..

We are so excited for today so we woke up early today. At 9 o’clock, we eat breakfast at Instant Restaurant which located beside the hotel. The boss is Indonesian people, and she is very friendly.I saw the booth, and interesting with it’s roasted pork. So I ordered Roasted Pork Noodle 烧肉面 which cost RM$7.

It’s yummy, the meat is so crunchy and tasty. My aunty ordered Porridge and 油条. My cousins ordered Roasted Pork Noodle, same with me and Balacan Fried Rice.

This restaurant will become our breakfast restaurant. Actually, there’s 2 restaurant with same concept, but maybe different owner, different luck. In the morning, Instant Restaurant is more crowded than the others. But in the evening, the others is more crowded than this one.

After eat breakfast, we go to our first destination,Central Market. The nearest station with hotel is Imbi Station or Bukit Bintang Station. Imbi Station located in the next Berjaya Times Square, and Bukit Bintang Station locted behind Sungei Wang Plaza.

We ride Monorail with KL Sentral direction to Hang Tuah station then change to KTM with Sentul Timur direction to Masjid Jamek station then change again to Kelana Jaya Line with kelana Jaya direction to Pasar Seni Station.

Exit subway station, go to Central Market directions. We have to walk around 5 minutes to go there. After cross the road, you can see the blue old building, that’s Central Market.

Central Market sell some art and culture craft. There’s a lot of clothes like batik, and some craft. The price is standard. In the back of the store, there’s painting store.

We decided to rest for a while, buy some drink. The weather is too hot. 

From Central Market, we go to Chinatown Petaling Street. We just walk pass through the road.

Then we ride Kelana Jaya Line again, and back to Masjid Jamek. Our next destination is Masjid Jamek and Dataran Merdeka. Arrive at Masjid Jamek, we take the wrong exit. So we have to cross the road. And unfortunately, the Masjid Jamek is close at noon. So we decided to directly go to Dataran Merdeka. 

From Masjid Jamek, we walk near the construction, and will find a square.

From the square, we can see Pasar Seni. What?? No way… it’s so close. It’s only located behind Central Market. But we don’t know. If we know, we didn’t need to ride the train.
In the intersection of the square and pasar seni, just turn right. Then you will see Textile Museum. Walk straight, pass the river and you will arrive at Dataran Merdeka.

We eat lunch first at Dataran Underground Mall. The mall is new, and nothing much to see. Only there’s 2 restaurant in there with limited seat.
After eating, we go out and walk around

We took photos with “I ❤ KL” statue and enjoy the view of building around the Dataran Merdeka. 

After finished, we back to subway Masjid Jamek.

We go back to Imbi Station to go to Berjaya Times Square. I thought that it’s expensive mall. But it’s not. Most of the store is local product.

Because the hot weather, we decided to try the snow flake. It’s delicious and refreshing.

buy 1 mango snowflake, then you will got this for free

 There’s a theme park inside the mall, located at the 5th floor. While eating ice cream, we saw the rollercoaster is playing. And we want to try it. I heard that it’s the 2nd longest rollercoaster for indoor theme park.

But something happen, while we eat ice, on the 2nd ride that we saw, the rollercoaster stopped in the middle of the ride. I thought that it’s a usual stop, but turned out there’s something with it. So we decided didn’t ride it. Haha..

We bought mineral water and some snack at Cool Storage. 

In front of the cold storage, there’s a piano stairs that can produce the sound while you step on it. It’s beautiful and cool.

From Berjaya Times Square, we go to Pavilion Mall. We pass Sungei Wang Plaza, Lot10, Fahrenheit, all of them are famous shopping place at Bukit Bintang.  We eat dinner at Pavilion Food Republic. 

the 2nd most not delicious tteokbeoki that I ate

Then we go back to hotel for rest.

Wake up late and it’s already 9 o’clock. Me and my friend, decided to walk around Busan Tower to spend time before go to Seoul.

We decided to go to the observatory floor. It cost 4000 Won.

We can see Busan City in 360 degree. And there’s a name of the place in each windows.

There’s a cafe inside the observatory and the wall full with Couple’s Wish.

Too bad it’s cloudy and windy that day. But it’s still beautiful.

From Busan Tower, we drop by Hotel to Check-Out and keep our luggage there then go to Lotte Department Store Gwangbok Branch 롯데백화점 (부산 광복점). There’s a laser show inside the mall. Even it’s not big, but it’s enough to amazed us.

Jakarta to Bandung by Cipaganti Shuttle # Indonesia

From Jakarta, Me and my cousin drop by Bandung for 1 night to shopping. We rode Cipaganti Shuttle from Jakarta to Bandung.
At Jakarta, we decided to rode the shuttle from:

MANGGA DUA SQUARE ( MG-2 )
Jl Gunung Sahari, Mangga Dua Square, Lt GF, Blok A No 241-242
Telp. 021 6231 3227

to

BANDUNG TRADE CENTER ( BTC )
Jl Dr. Djunjunan No 143-149

It cost IDR 90.000/person.

The rode was smoothly. It’s raining when we are on the way.
But the driver seems not so kind enough. When he stop in the destination, we don’t know where it is, so we ask him. But he didn’t answer us, and just smoking. How rude of him. We are a little disappointed, because we are not local people. He should telling us, where is it, because our destination is BTC, and we didn’t see any BTC building in there.

Fortunately, we are near. So we rode taxi to our hotel.
