First double date trip

I am happy :D

3 days in the right company away from home can do wonders.

So I just returned from a 3D2N holiday in KL yesterday.

The foursome; me, JB, Wai Sam and Ah Wai left for KL last Sunday. We boarded the morning train and reached KL Sentral around lunch time.

From there, we took the monorail to Hang Tuah and checked into Olympic Hotel. Actually I was in a dilemma on whether to go for Hotel Sentral or pay a little bit more for a nicer hotel like Oylmpic Hotel.

The lobby.

The front entrance

Hotel Sentral is situated just next to the KL Monorail station but the place gets pretty seedy and dangerous at night.

Whatever it is, I think Olympic Hotel was a good choice. Walk a little down the hotel and you have China town. And so long as it's near a monorail station, that means you're connected to the busiest and most happening places in KL.

Later in the afternoon, we decided to go to Midvalley. So we took the KTM and boy, did we have to wait long. And because it was a Sunday, the crowd was unbelievable.

I didn't mind the long wait for the train or the crowded uh... crowd, but Wai Sam was near starvation. LOL.

So got to Midvalley and JB and I parted ways with the other couple. We had a lovely time just walking around. We didn't really buy anything. Just shared a set of McD and bought myself a bracelet.

My camera phone isn't exactly made for snapping close-up pictures. Can't wait to get a real camera :)

We thought of going to the movies but you look at Sunday queue and you can forget about watching anything.

So after Midvalley, got back to the hotel and rested my poor, poor feet. Later at night, we went down to Chinatown to hunt ourselves some dinner.

I tell ya, going to China town when it's 10 something at night isn't a very bright idea. But the girls had their guys so all was good... that was until this one foreign clothes seller was like staring right at my chest and asking me how much it weighed!!

WTF man!!! After that incident, I never left JB's arms again that night.

Anyway, I had claypot chicken rice for dinner. I just ate the rice and gave Wai Sam and her dude the chicken. Next time, I'll just have rice with black sauce. Shouldn't cost more than RM2.

Day 2

Had breakfast at the hotel, headed to KL Sentral and took a bus to Sunway Pyramid.

Funny thing was, I got emo there because JB's camera shy-ness really ticked me off. LOL. I should slap myself for nearly ruining the trip.

But all ended well and we went for a round of skating at the rink. My first time skating!

I tell ya, the ice is super slippery and glassy. I was having second thoughts of skating as I entered the skating rink gingerly.

It was JB's 2nd time so he guided me. Ah Wai was a natural because he skate boarded or roller bladed (I forgot) before this.

Anyway, after going halfway round the skating rink, I managed to get a hang of it and stopped depending on the wall.

So lover boy and I skated (or more like walk-skate slowly) around the rink holding hands. Banyak romantic la kita... beh tahan.

That picture was after our skating session.

We couldn't skate for very long because we still had Sunway Lagoon to go to!

All 4 of us bought the RM60 tickets which included the Water Park, Amusement Park and Wildlife Park.

We saw a little bit of the Wildlife Park, didn't touch the Amusement Park (what a waste) and mainly spent the whole time in the Water Park. That's because we had to leave after 3 hours or so because it looked like it was gonna rain heavily.

Self-note: If you wanna go to Sunway Lagoon, best to leave early and get there early if you want to even dream of covering all Parks in a day.

But still, I had a splashing good time in the water with JB. And I toned a few muscles while at it.

Proof: My arms and legs are freaking hurting now.

Finally, snapped a picture with camera shy boy XD

After drying up.

Then after swimming, we went back to Sentral. The long bus ride back was taking its toll on me and I started feeling nauseous. We were dead beat tired but because it was raining cats and dogs, there was no way to go back to the hotel for a rest first. So we decided to go to Berjaya Times Square for dinner.

We went to Food & Tea Restaurant. Personally, I thought the food was delicious and the ambience was cosy and posh. I was so hungry so the food tasted doubly good. But because of that goddamn bus ride that added gas into my stomach, I couldn't finish my food or risk popping like a balloon.

After dinner we went shopping again. This time, JB bought for me a dress (Spending all your money on me. Spend it on me - B.E.P). Times Square sells some really nice clothes at extremely affordable prices. And I was very tempted to buy a pair of flats (oh man, I think I have a fetish for flats now).

There was one really cute pair of PINK flats! Gah! It took me tremendous will power not to get it because I was on a budget and I didn't want to use up all his money, I controlled myself.

You know how hard that can be?? Do ya?? Oh well, there's always next time.

Then went back to the room for some well-deserved sleep ;)

Day 3

Had breakfast at the hotel and went down to China town for more breakfast where we had the "famous" fish porridge there.

After that, packed our stuff and checked out at noon. Our train left at 1pm so we had to rush to Sentral.

The train ride back home was smooth until just after Slim River where the train's engine broke down. We waited for like 2 hours in the train. But I wasn't complaining. Heehee.. OK, skip it if you're not me.

After some tinkering, the train managed to go until Tapah where it stopped again. Then we all transfered to another train all the way to Kampar.

By that time, it was 6 something in the evening and I was hungry. So he then took me out to KFC.

After dinner, we took a short walk around our quiet little town and then he took me back home.
The end.

Aaah... Memories *me likes*

Looking forward to our next trip :D
