SUNDAY – MAY 5, 2013
After enjoyed SnoWalk at i-City, we took a taxi to Shah Alam KTM Station (RM 15.00), then commuter train to KL Sentral (12:55 PM – 1:40 PM). Fare = RM 2.50 (adult) + RM 1.20 (child).
When arrived at KL Sentral, we were very hungry then bought some lunch at McDonald’s (opened 24 hours at the ground floor of the train station). It was good time to get value meal between 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM. Alif and I had Spicy Chicken Deluxe and Fried Chicken for RM 20.05 including potato fries and soft drink (it was disappointing that Malaysian McD didn’t serve steamed rice unlike their outlets in Indonesia).
Only 15 minutes walk from KL Sentral, we went to check in at Joy Inn Hotel (http://www.joyinnhotel.com/), got “Joy Room with Window”, fare = RM 88.00/night.
We left our room at 3:30 PM, walked back to KL Sentral then took LRT (@RM 1.30) to Masjid Jamek Station. Too bad the mosque (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamek_Mosque ) was still closed (under renovation) then couldn’t get inside.
Few minutes walk from Masjid Jamek, around the corner was Dataran Merdeka (http://www.welcome-kl.com/dataran-merdeka-independence-square/).
From Dataran Merdeka, we visited Masjid India (http://www.masjidindia.com/).
The mosque had very spacious pray area for ladies on the second floor.
Every evening until almost midnight, the street in front of the mosque (Jalan Masjid India) became very crowded night market.
Another retail therapy at Mydin: Alif got a brand new Casio watch, I purchased some packs of Pakistani masala and my favorite brand of facial wash (http://www.myeversoft.com.my/products/product.html#).
It was 6:15 PM already when we reached the lobby of KL Tower (http://www.kltower.com.my/) from Masjid India by taxi (RM 10.00). I paid for Observation Desk + Animal Zone, fare = RM 57.00 (adult) + RM 37.00 (child).
It was beautiful sunset view from Observation Deck (http://www.kltower.com.my/index.cfm?sc=observation_deck).
One hour passed so fast, when it was dark already then we left to see Animal Zone. Alif really enjoyed that mini zoo (http://www.kltower.com.my/index.cfm?sc=kl_tower_animal_zone), he spent one hour there and got a pose with some cute parrots (additional RM 5.00 charge).
At 8:15 PM, we got free shuttle bus from KL Tower to Jalan P. Ramlee then 15 minutes walk to Hard Rock Cafe at Concorde Hotel to buy some pins before took Bus 79 to KLCC (fare = RM 1.00 per passenger but I only paid for one person because it was only one stop away).
Arrived the ground floor of the twin towers, Alif bought a toy at Toys R Us (http://www.suriaklcc.com.my/shopping/). It was his ritual, must get something to remember from cities we visited.
When we got out from the mall at 10:00 PM, there was water and light show (accompanied by Celine Dion’s OST Titanic “My Heart Will Go On”) at Fountain Park (http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.asp?file=/2012/6/6/central/11385400&sec=central).
And this is an obligatory pose for KL visitors:
It was 11:00 PM already when we got back to our hotel, tired but happy.
MONDAY – MAY 6, 2013
We checked out from hotel at 5:00 AM, then took Airport Coach from KL Sentral to KLIA (http://airportcoach.com.my/v1/2011/02/08/klia-kl-sentral/). Fare = RM 10.00 (adult) + RM 6.00 (child).
After baggage wrap, checked in, baggage drop, and morning pray (Shalat Fajr) then we went to boarding gate. It was C11 means we had to take Aerotrain (free of charge) from Departure Hall.
It was safe trip by Lion Air, departed and arrived as scheduled, Alif and I ended our trip then looked forward to visit Johor Bahru (November 2013) and Penang (April 2014). See you again, Malaysia…
