Malaysia Trip 2013 (Part IV)

This is gonna be a short story.. It’s the last day of my trip at KL. Wah.. Dun wanna go home lar… so fun in here. Imagine to have a job just traveling, eat, play and sleep and get money.. ahh so good..

It’s Monday, Koko Mike is going to work, Abang takes leave and accompany us. In the morning, we pick up Sherline and went to China Town – Petaling Street. It’s a ‘MUST’ to go place. We’re having brunch at a foodcourt. I miss simple traditional chinese food, a lot of food varieties to choose, yummy. After finish having our breakfast, we started to walk along the street. Like always, I want to drink the Malaysia’s signature drink, Air Mata Kucing, so cool and soothing for this very hot day. FRESH! It’s still on Chinese New Year period, so some shops are not open. We went to some booth and bought ICE WATCH, hehe cheap! I regret I didn’t buy a lot, just Red and Pink. Next time, I’ll bought RAINBOW colors! Anthony bought some clothes for his staffs. It’s very hot and we tried another drink called KIM SOYA BEAN, quite nice.. but still air mata kucing and tembikai lychee are my favorite!

 177 CHINA TOWN - PETALING STREET

178 I LOVE CHINA TOWN

Next place we went is BERJAYA TOWN SQUARE. Anthony heard that our friends are there. So we’d like to meet and join them. Berjaya town square is a big mall and a lot of shopss. The item prices are quite cheap. We met Ririe and Sandy first when we shopping at a store. Then we’re all gathered. We’re shopping together, from clothes, souvenirs and food. Having lunch at Food Court and Nandos. Time is ticking fast.. and it’s time to go.. T^T

179 BERJAYA TIME SQUARE

We separated in group. Sherline followed the other group and giving them a hugs. When she came back, She’s crying. Oww.. Is she so lonely ? Hope the best for her. Cheer up!! I think she’s really happy when we’re all came here at KL and stick together. Abang took me to KL Central, It’s the first time I’m gonna use bus to go to LCTT airport by my own.. worry-worry. Anthony will go back tomorrow.. (looks like I always depending on him..). Thank you abang for helping me. They accompany me until depart. Wah… now I’m going back, to airport and back to reality – JAKARTA!

180 BACK TO JAKARTA

In the plane, I met all again.. hahaha… We shared snacks and drinks. Took pictures until we reach Jakarta.

Selamat Datang di Jakarta.

Malaysia Trip 2013 (Part III)

We have met Koko Mike yesterday, he just came back from Singapore. We played suspect together, chat and eat snack. Koko Mike always sleep earlier.

Okay, This is SUNDAY! the Les Mills QWS 1/2013. Sherline came to Andalucia and bring us breakfast – Nasi Lemak. yeay! After finish, we went to Sunway Resort Hotel and Spa. I’ve been here before when I was in the high school, but only the theme park and mall. It’s quite far. But Sunway is a nice place to visit. The QWS is super ultimate and it takes place at the hotel ballroom. Yeah! It’s big! Nice wide place to workout with the colorful flashing lighting. I like! Anthony will join the Bodystep® workshop. So me, Sherline, Abang and Koko are going for lunch.

162 GO TO SUNWAY

For me, Sunway is a unique design building, very luxurious and antique, somehow also vintage design. This building are connected – Hotel, Mall, Theme park and Water theme park.  Nice Chinese New Year decoration in the Sunway Hotel. At the outside, there’s some big statues like exotic elephant, deers, fish, boat etc. We played and took a lot of pictures. Sherline seem so happy with it especially when we try to photo jump in front of exotic elephant statue. Inside the mall – Sunway Pyramid, there’s a great Chinese big boat at the atrium. I don’t know how to say in english, but I wanna say “NIAT!” (Indonesia word) haha… Very nice design, I love it. A lot of people took picture there, including me.

163 GONG XI GANGNAM

164 JUMP WITH ELEPHANT

165 BRONZE ANTLERS

166 SUNWAY PROSPERITY SHIP

Abang took us to Sushi Zanmai – Japanese restaurant for lunch. It’s a nice place, kinda same like Sushi Tei in Jakarta. We order a lot of food. Ah, my favorite Japanese appetizer – Chuka Iidako, baby octopus (drool). Not everyone like this food, because the look, baby octopus.. but it’s so delicioussss.. Even Sherline was closing her eyes when try to eat it… She’s afraid. Haha… I’m swallowing my saliva when writing this. slurp.

167 SUSHI ZANMAI

168 THAT MOMENT YOU EAT CHUKA IIDAKO

169 LUNCH AT SUSHI ZANMAI

But I think the special ones is YI SANG. Ordered by Koko Mike. It’s the first time I heard this food. When It came on the table, Oh it’s salad but different. Kinda like “Gado-gado Vietnam” for me. This Yi Sang contains variety of vegetable and salmon with 3 different sauces – Honey, Lemon, Olive Oil. We poured the sauces on, grab our chopsticks. We greet, pray, bless each other with prosperity, succees and health. Then we snap and mix the Yi Sang while Koko Mike is taking the video. Horraayy!! It’s sweet and sour – Delicious!! Anthony joins us after he finished Bodystep® workshop. I just realised that Sushi Zanmai’s sushi is quite cheaper than Jakarta. Ahh full!

170 YI SANG

We’re going back to the Ballroom. Time to play and dance. Sh’bam® and Bodyjam® time schedule gap is loong.. Sh’bam was 1 pm and Bodyjam was 6 pm -_- , so after we Sh’bammed, we have to wait for Bodyjam®. I met Abang and Koko at Coffee Bean cafe near the ice skating area. We spending time by playing Suspect for about 5 -7 rounds. After that, we’re going to walk around the mall. Outside the mall, we tried to take the photo jump with the Big Lion Statue. The result is good. I like.
