First of all, I have to talk about the events preceding.
One of the places that was suggested to us that we check out were the Genting Highlands. For those of you that aren't familiar with this tourist attraction, it is a mountain peak within the Titiwangsa Mountains on the border between the states of Pahang and Selangor of Malaysia and is home to a famous mountain resort by the same name which can be reached by car from Kuala Lumpur in one hour. It is also accessible by the world's fastest and South East Asia's longest cable car called Genting Skyway (3.38km).
With that having been said, the trip was quite exhausting. We had to go up the mountains for about an hour before we hit the entryway to the Genting Skyway. From there, everything was tough on the legs. The line to the cable car was a daunting wait, and because we went on a Sunday... that just made it even worse for us. It was like waiting for two Disneyland rides all at once! Tip for the common traveler: Don't go to insanely popular theme parks and attractions during the weekends in Malaysia.
One of the main attractions that Malaysia has to offer is their marketplace located in Damansara. It would be pretty difficult to locate if you're a tourist, and parking is horrible... but if you don't mind all of that, you can get some really cheap and decent food out here. Whether it be hot food, pastries, fruit... it's all great and all so affordable! Think of it like a farmer's market, but with more variety. We passed by some of the most interesting carts that some of these places had to offer, and believe me.
There was a seafood restaurant in Petaling Jaya called Pentai Seafood, and it is probably in one of the worst looking ghetto areas you could find. Don't let the area fool you, as this restaurant really surprises you with the assorted selections of seafood that they offer. At this point, I had pretty much had enough of seafood. I think after three days, it becomes unsettling. Don't get me wrong though... the food was great, and for anybody that enjoys crab like I do... it's one of the best places to eat out here in Malaysia. I managed to snap a few photos of the place before I left.
Now on to the rest of the journey.
From what I've deducted, the burger is only served at night in certain locations.
I'll blog more when I get back to Singapore. Malaysia is getting to be kind of boring now, but that's because I've been here way too long.
