A dose of kl makes me happy

Church camp was KL this year from Monday to Thursday. So.. how can we waste the weekends?
Decision made.
Booked the grassland bus and off we went on Saturday - 730am bus!
(Okay. For KL, I'm a real fan for grassland because of comfort and that it stops opposite Time Square - Easy go Easy Back)

Being a bunch of energetic girls, we placed our bags down and went searching for food.

First up, the Hainanese Kopitiam
35 Jalan Dang Wangi
(If you stay at Times square like us, sit the metro from IMBI till Bukit Nanas, then just walk there.Its very near!)

See the station below

And go in this direction. All the way straight. Around 10 minutes walk?

Don't bother asking people if they know Yut Kee.
NO ONE KNOWS. Not even the address if you show them.
Its along the row of shophouses. Near the 7-11

When we went there it was packed. WITH SINGAPOREANS!
Goodness. haha. Even the owner sounds Singaporean. Is he?
So the wait began.
1. Go to the counter, tell him how many people
2. Wait at the side, he will call your name

Roti Babi was sold out.

So we looked around and ordered what the rest was.

Pork Chop -
Its crispy so with the sauce mix, its good. Need to share though. Its quite filling and 'jerlat' after a while it seems.

And the Hailam Mee
- I like the sauce. Not too oily and sweet. 

I still want to go back and try the rest though. Singapore thing.

Next morning Monday, we wanted to go to Imbi. But was told it was shut. But along the way we found this coffee shop. You will see it on your way.Jalan Melati if I'm not wrong.
(Its better than Imbi I find. Well personal preference.)

Very nice!
I love the black kueh one.

Oh. This was their famous store item and I had high hopes. The store that sold this near my church was delicious. But this, sad to say, too hard. Yam and sweet potato a little too hard and dry. 

Pan Mee -
Very tasteful with I supposed lots of Aginomoto? But well worth.

Cheong fun mix. Normal.

Yong Tau Foo - Light and a little oily. But nice.

And in the evening, we made our way to Sek Yuan Restoran- Cantonese food!
315 Jalan Pudu
Walking distance from Bukit Bintang (just walk all the way straight along that small highway and look across the road)

The pipa Duck. Crunchy, Crispy and meat seasoned well.

Meat Balls. Fried. But meat is very juicy so does not feel very oily.

Char Siew - The best. We ordered additional plates.

Tou fu - So So~

And of course, the finale IMBI market.
Which I had very very high expectations because of the numerous reviews on it.

1. Get off at the Bukit Bintang station
2. Exit towards Lot 10 and walk towards Parkroyal.
3. Turn left into Jalan Imbi after Parkroyal n keep walking until you see Win Heng coffee shop on your right. 
4. Cross the street into Jalan Barat. Keep walking until you see Jalan Melati on your left.
Turn left into Jalan Melati.

Once you see this. You are on the right path. Cross the road into an Ulu small road.

And you'll see this sign. 


Yin Yang

Curry Noodle

Pan Mee

Chicken feet noodles

And egg tarts that we had to order and wait. Hot from the oven. 

And Cheong fun!

The must eats at Imbi - Cheong fun and Egg tarts. Thats the conclusion.

Shanghai - the places where a local goes

Went to shanghai and decided to explore the town as a weekend local - meaning the places locals go on the weekends for chill-lax. Totally awesome! Specially for those who goes to shanghai really often and am tired of all the shopping and all the tourist places and doesn't have time to move on to Suzhou or hangzhou. 

Jingan sculpture park 

1. Out of station turn right straight Turn left along Shimenerlu and you will see this
 It's fantastic. If you have 3G there yo can scan the qr code and find out more about the interpretations of the art pieces 

 And the flowers are so pretty 

Next to inspire my left brain 
M50 art street

2. M50 Zhong tan lu exit 5 or 6 walk straight all the way  u see a bridge and graffiti just follow 

You'll see this after turning the corners 

The atmosphere is fantastic for painting
And if you don't have your own paint and easels there's studio classes which you can join 

Oh yes, the best thing about this place is you can also make your own rings. 
Look at this example! So nice! 
You can bring your own drawing to crave or they have samples - the helpers there will guide you. It's reasonable price. 
For the rings below, you need to buy at least 6 packs of material which will come up to around 

Also checking out what's happening in shanghai that weekend, saw that a flea market was happening in da xue lu so I made my way there. 

Was very disappointed though. After so much walking and finding, to realise it's a very small flea and the items sold were nothing unique. 

But this place is a great area to chill with the many coffee and dessert shops. 

Been to shanghai many many times and this wkend was the best :)
