Cheras + KLCC

Went to Cheras (Cheras is kinda far from PJ, I went to University LRT Station by bus, then transited to STAR LRT at Masjid Jamek @@) to get study manuals from Sis Poh Yan (only look for her when I need her *slap me*). Hauled Shuzhen to go with me as the manuals are heavy. Chatted a while with Sis Poh Yan about her actuarial work in Hong Leong Assurance; she is doing well, I'm glad for her. Her condo is spacious and windy, a conducive place to stay, and the bonus part is the rental is cheap.. It's expected as it's in Cheras.

Went to KLCC after that. Without any hesitation, I decided to try the spaghetti in the food court, as it was recommended by Nicolekiss. Yes, the spaghetti was really delicious with the strong scent of cheese. I ate Meat Ball Bolognese, should have eaten Shuzhen's Mean Ball Marinara, as it tasted better. And guess what it only cost RM 7.99!!! Cheap!!!

Beyond praise, considering the price

The lunch was definitely a relaxing one as we got to sit beside windows to enjoy the breathtaking scenery outside, I felt I was like savoring great food in a classy restaurant, like those in Hong Kong series.

This is the only part in Msia which is a bit classy

Another side of view of Tasik Titiwangsa

Headed to Kinokuniya after the sumptuous lunch. I wanna purchase a book(Sophie's World) recommended by Chris long time ago. (Actually I went once not long after he told me about this book, but that time Kinokuniya was closed for clean up)Seriously we really can't blame Malaysian to read less; it's so hard to get a book. The well established book stores are Kinokuniya and Borders only. It's been a long long time I do not browse Kinokuniya, and of course is not aware of its handy book searching machine. It amazed me.

We just need to key in title/author of
the book we are looking for
. And it will show us
the details. For people who are 'direction blind' like me,
I can print out the map to look for the book easily.

The map

It was really Shuzhen's day as she bought three novels by Kathy Reichs, a great author and international bestseller. Seeing her buying the novels happily made me recall those days when I was addicted to thriller novels. I can save money on novels now by just borrowing them from her. *smile*

After two hours burying ourselves among book shelves, we went to Isetan to buy Sushi. According to Shuzhen's mum, Sushi in Isetan is far nicer than those in Sushi King and Sakae Sushi and it costs cheaper too. I just learnt today that Isetan was opened by Japanese. There was a Hokkaido Fair there too, a lot of Japanese food there cooked by Japanese chefs on the spot. But we didn't buy anything as we were too full, and they were expensive too. A small tiny pancake cost RM2.20!

A wide variety of sushi

Didn't buy any (those who know me well should
know how much I love Western food and how much
I dislike Japanese food)
. Maybe I should really go
Japan to sample the real Japanese food
and I would love it... Japanese food in Msia disappoints me a lot.

At last we were shopping randomly. I swear to be on diet!!! I can't fit in more and more blouses anymore!!! As a result, I didn't buy any blouses though it was a megasale going on.

Reached home finally at 5.15pm. Slept like a log when I reached home.... A nice outing indeed. I was happy though I was worn out (a sentence I like to write when I was in primary school) *smile*

Okay. Super long ago post. But hey. It's because Malaysians don't read much thats why it's hard to get a book! Not the other way round lols.
