Bright Lights: Kuala Lumpur 2015


The first two days of being in KL was extraordinary. The professionalism of transportation is wonderful, and the cleanliness of main roads is beyond. I keep wondering whether Jakarta will ever be as easy as KL. Anyways, here's day three of The Suite Life of Jan & Sas.

In the morning, Saras, David & I walked to find breakfast. We wanted to go to a famous coffee shop called LOKL, but sadly when we got there, it was closed. So we head off to Pasar Seni, and had brunch around the area. We then took a bus (GO KL), and went to Pavilion to find lunch. We didn't know where else to go, so we strolled around Bukit Bintang, and had Turkish ice cream. We basically went mall hopping in this area.

After dawn (Malay: Lepas Maghrib), we had dinner at Nasi Kandar Pelita which is right across the hotel. It was an Indian-Muslim (Mama) food place, so Saras & I had Ayam Tandoori with Roti Canai, and my uncle had Singaporean Rojak (Very different from the Indonesian one). Uncle T had an office driver who likes to take him anywhere. His name is Uncle Bob. So he picked us up and he gave us a late night city tour. He showed us places to go in the morning (Malay: Pagi), and where not to go at night. One of the places was Chowkit. It was crowded with gangsters and surprisingly, drag queens (Malay: Pondan). Before heading back to the hotel, we also went to a famous mosque nearby, called Masjid Jamek. It was very pretty and bright, but sadly the both of us were on our period, so we couldn't pray there.

"People are looking at you right now thinking 'Why are their foods so dry?'" - Uncle T. 
Fun fact: In Malaysia, most food (esp. Indian) are completed with curry, and they pour the curry all over their rice or bread. 
Saras, Uncle T & I don't do that. #hipsters

Masjid Jamek and its prettiness.

What I Wore:
