KL Trip

Went to KL on the 20th May with Pui Yee to meet up with Audrey, Stef, and Ann Li in KL. Woke up around 5.45am to prepare myself even though the train ride was on 9am 'cause my father need to get my sister to school and it's troublesome to do a second trip. After dropping my sister to her school, me and my father went to have breakfast in one of the many kopitiam in Old Town, Ipoh, where the train station was located.

Ipoh train station, the starting point of the trip...
it's a 3 hours ride, so a book is needed to kill time...

Reach KL Central around 11.45am. Took LRT to Station Universiti to go to Universiti Malaya, the oldest universiti in Malaysia. We were supposed to be warmly received by Stef when reached the the bus stop but it was vacant of people when we arrived. Instead of the guide waiting the tourists, it's the tourists waiting for the guide to arrive. Had a brief tour around UM before we met up with Audrey, the other guide.

Where we waited the guide...
here's our guide, Stef, just finished doing whatever she was doing...
Few photos inside UM...

After UM, we went to 1 Utama. It's been a while since I last went there. Had lunch at Garden Cafe. A garden-themed cafe, it's a very beautiful place to have lunch in. The food were delicious too.
decorations...
menu that looks like children's storybook...
Iced lemon tea
Soup of the day-watercress with cream soup i think...
what I had- butter ginger dory fish
black pepper chicken chop, Pui Yee's and Stef's meals...
Audrey's main course...can't remember the name...
Mango Orange Sorbet for dessert
Like an emperor with his 'dayang's...hehe

After lunch, went shopping. Or more like window shopping since everyone went back empty-handed. We mostly just talked and talked and talked. After 1 U, went to The Curve+Ikano Power Center+Damansara Cineleisure all in one go. Nothing much there except in Cineleisure where there got those movies-related statues like the Silver Surfer and Mike and Sulley from Monster Inc.

the Silver Surfer...
Mike and Sulley
an elongated 'Mike' and a stick 'Sulley'

Around 8pm, we began to plan for our ride back KL Central for our train ride back Ipoh at 9.45pm. This is the most funny and syok moment throughout the trip. They (Audrey and Stef mostly) were discussing how to go back Central in the most safe and cheap way.

Taxi-Stef afraid of it.
Walk to 1 U to take bus-Stef afraid of dark.
Take the shuttle bus provided by Ikano-too late,scared can't reach Central on time

In the end, after much debating, we decided to walk to 1U for bus. But, the bus only start moving at 9.15pm, too late for us. We had to resolve to taxi anyhow. Reached Central around 9.30pm. Before we said goodbye to KL, we went to tapau Subway sandwichs for diner. My first Subway, rushing the waiter to speed up the process and enjoying it inside the train. Reached Ipoh around 12.45am.
