KL Shopping Trip 2009

Friday (09.10.2009) in KL - Continuing from the previous post, we started our craze at Sungei Wang Plaza. Going from one floor to another floor. There were quite a number of shops that offers one-price-for-all-items. Unfortunately, we didn't managed to 'sapu' a lot of items... 'cause we can't see anything that we like. With Laura's suggestion in mind, I did buy one dress which I think can also become a top if I dont want to reveal too much legs. Shall post about this soon in wgtgfashion. LS's friend, Dorcas, came with her husband and daughter to find us in the evening. We shopped around Times Square and then went to somewhere to have a very late dinner. Erm... can consider supper lor...

Saturday (10.01.2009) in KL - We woke up without the help of an alarm clock - we want to get as much rest as possible. Another thing that we must do every morning is to down a glass of orange juice before brushing our teeth.
According to LS, drinking one glass of orange juice every morning can help to reduce the body heat so that we will not become sick. For me, I think it is the vitamin C boost. Ah! I just realised something. As a Blood A, I am not supposed to consume orange. Is this why I dont feel well starting from the 4th day of the trip?!?!

Anyways... LS's friend, Dorcas, had arranged to meet us at Midvalley to accompany us shopping. And... In our attempt to save a bit on the transportation, LS and I decided to travel by Monorail and KTM. A bit confused at first but we managed to reach Midvalley. Before any shopping, we started with our breakfast - Yoshinoya!
Chicken Teppanyaki Udon and that's... Enoki Mushroom wrapped with Beef Strip (I forgot the exact name)

LS and I had a plan to eat Japanese buffet while we are in KL but we just can't resist the temptation to eat Japanese food so Yoshinoya it is...

I managed to get two tops - both for work. One of them will be my 1st day of Chinese New Year's top. Yes! No need to worry about not having any red colour - the top is pink, btw.

Dorcas had something up her sleeves - she got a friend, A-Wei (according to LS, the name is A-Wei but I thought that the name is A-Weng. Both of us have no idea who is correct) to join us for lunch (which is about two hours after we had our breakfast) at Chopstick Noodle House.

The poor guy, I shall call him A-Wei, followed us around, waited for us while we shopped and helped us to carry our shopping bags. Erm... It was embarrassing. I didn't buy anything after he followed us around. I have no idea why.

For dinner, we went to the food court and LS and I immediately agreed on Korean food. I ordered Kimchi Jiggae value meal and Bibimbap value meal. The Kimchi Jiggae is a disappointment - I think that it tasted more like Tom Yam than Kimchi... The Bibimbap was alright.

However, by eating the Korean food that has a lot of sourness, LS and I were hungry when we were back to our room. So, we did the next logical thing - go downstairs, buy cup noodle from 7-11, cooked the noodle and eat.
Sunday (11.01.2009) in KL

It is sort of customary for LS and I to go to hair salon to get our hair wash during our trip. There are a few reasons that contribute to this activity. One is because we didn't bring any shampoo for this trip - save the luggage weight. Two is because we always get back to our apartment late - it is a bother to wash and blow dry hair. Three is because LS has a permed hair and it is hard to maintain - looking at her maintaining her hair makes me so tired.

Dennis joined us for the day and 1 Utama is the destination. The first thing we do when we arrived there was to find Shogun to eat Japanese buffet. Tada!

Erm... I am a bit disappointed that I didnt managed to try the teppanyaki as recommended by JWei but I did swallow a large amount of salmon slices. Hehe...

After the super full meal, we started the day's shopping. I bought quite a few things including a black dress for formal dinner - this is something that I don't have. I found the skirt that I wanted to get - I got the same style skirt from the same brand shop last year. So happy that I found the skirt. We then shopped at Ikea and The Curve. Ah! At The Curve, I went into Borders and saw Twilight and then suddenly remembered that I wanted to get the saga. And so, I bought the book, Twilight. I didnt see the rest of the saga - I am kind of disappointed because I wanted to get the complete series but also kind of relieved because I can save a bit of my cash for other stuff.

After a long day out, LS and I had dinner at McD - I had the Beef Prosperity Burger. Ermm... ok lor...

Monday (12.01.2009) in KL - LS and I only has a plan till Saturday so we were kind of wondering where to go on Monday. We decided to go to Midvalley for another round 'cause we think that during the first trip, we were put off by the large crowd and so we might have missed a lot of stuff. Somemore, we had a few items that we have thought of getting. We ended having a really nice and quiet time looking at things and even managed to get some good bargains.

I forgot to mention that we had breakfast at Nyonya Something in The Gardens. The Chee Cheong Fun is different than what we have in Miri and I dont really like it. But I really enjoyed the porridge - maybe because I wasn't feeling well at that time. For lunch, we had Penang something and Fried Kuey Tiaw at Little Penang Kafe. LS said that the fried kuey tiaw is really nice - but it is just ok to me la... Btw, I had the Red Ruby as my drink. At The Gardens, we saw a Japanese product shop - I was excited to find some KitKats but there was none. Instead, we bought one pack of Hokkaido Milk... I heard that Hokkaido Milk is really nice o~ True enough, the milk is really milk-y. Very thick taste of milk. Hehe...

We continued our shopping in Sungei Wang as well... I finally found a pair of shoes. Let's just say that I didn't have any particular shoes style in mind when I was looking around at the shoes for that past few days. So, it is really great that I am able to find one... Jac joined us as her friend wanted to go to Pavilion. Somehow, we managed to walk around a lot - as in making a lot of unnecessary walking.

Teppanyaki Chicken - LS and I went to this place during our trip last year. Since we didnt know what else to eat at Sungei Wang, we decided to have the same thing again.

To tell you the truth, both LS and I were pretty tired at that time so... we went for foot massage. Hehe... Another un-necessary spending. Bleh...

That night, we actually went back to our apartment early and suddenly realised that we would be leaving the next day and we should start packing our stuff. LS and I had been putting all of our shopping items in the cupboard. So, we unloaded the whole stuff onto the bed. And started to pack... My luggage bag is quite full lor~~

Tuesday (13.01.2009) in KL - We went to Jalan Alor to have breakfast and decided to shop at the Lot 10 and Pavilion for our final shopping destinations before flying off...

It is, again, customary for us to have a little dessert at Haagen Dazs. We had Waffle with one scoop of Chocolate ice cream and one scoop of Strawberry ice cream. Please excuse the waffle - I forgot to take picture of it and has massacred it... Hehe... It is very yummy, btw.

Ah! Before ending this post, I have got to comment about the decorations... I love the ones at Midvalley (bottom right) and The Gardens (top centre)... I dont think I captured the one at The Gardens well. Too dark. Oh well...

It is finally time to get back to reality. We bid good bye to KL and flew back to Miri. Ah! I will be there again next month. Haha...
