Sweet and Spicy Finale

I told myself as I started the morning that I would definitely eat breakfast at one of the eateries I passed by going to Pantai. On the bus I got to ride with Aileen's Bangaladeshi neighbor, Milat. He offered to join me for breakfast but was so reluctant that I wanted to try food at the local areas. Having lived in Malaysia for over a year, he's only tried out the food at KL sentral and the restaurants, how sad. He could not believe that a non native would want to try the food at a fly swarmed place frequented by locals, wearing my revealing outfits of mini skirt and sleeveless top. Now that's what you call adventurous!

So I tried their Pattaya Goreng for only MYR 5.50, a combination of fried rice and local milk coffee with the usual cucumber sidings.

 Twas actually pretty good, but again the serving was too big for me. It was around 2 cups of fried rice and even Milat couldn't finish it.  

My planned trip to Genting still evaded me on my last day and so I just opted to park it for my return to KL. I decided to go around the KL Park instead (cab going there from KL Sentral costed MYR 24), this is where you'll see a bird's eye view of the Petronas and enjoy the lush greens of the park. I then walked to and had a nice time at the KL Bird Park, one of the biggest parks in the world (as the signage boasts!) this cost me MYR 30 for the entrance, a little pricey but will understandably go to the high maintenance of the park facilities.

I then had to rush to Petaling Street to buy my souvenirs and have my pictures printed before having dinner with Aileen and her friends.

I was enjoying my time picking souvenirs in the area until the clock hit 5pm, and the whole market started to get busy, all the stores started to close and bring out their wares on carts parked in the middle of the streets. It was pretty harassing to be jostled around by people and making sure that you're in one piece as the huge carts speedily ran around finding a good spot for the night market while totally disregarding the passersby. I did manage to get myself out and have my pictures done thinking that the price seemed lower (which I sadly discovered upon getting back home was the exact price in Manila, argh!)

My evening was spent with Aileen, her Filipino and Malay friends touring me on my last night around the city, thanks to Edward, the housemate with the car.

Finally I got a night shot of the Petronas and went around the beautiful Sunway mall, something you should not miss. The night life isn't so exciting here as most of the bars and malls close early, before midnight. This is what I missed all of a sudden in Manila.  The team stayed up till Edward dropped me off at KL Sentral so I could take the bus to the airport for my flight home at dawn.

Getting to the airport without sleep, I decided to finally try their traditional breakfast, the Nasi Lemak. An interesting combination of cucumber and tomato slices, a bit of dried anchovies, a bit of curry sauce, fried rice, and fried egg. This I matched to their milk coffee and do note that most drinks in Malaysia are always too sweet. All of this again was too much for me considering it was breakfast. The local cuisine is definitely something you need to get used to.

And this is how my Malaysian adventure ends. Missing the laid back lifestyle and the serenity of the area until now.
