October 3-5, 2017
I ve had a good time with my family for 3 days.
We checked in our condo at about 10pm. The reception is closed at 6pm, so they left the keys in the mailbox, where anyone can take it. It means maybe, KK is not too bad when it comes to security.
The room was amazing. It’s a two story-apartment with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. We could make our own meal in the well equipped kitchen, so we had Korean breakfast every morning.
The following day, we walked to IMAGO shopping mall. It’s a huge multi-story department store, same kind as in Korea, with a super strong air-conditioning, luxury goods, a floor with restos and a supermarket. My family from Korea loved it as it’s cool inside. Actually it’s rather COLD for me. It was very much like in Korea, nothing special nor exotic.
We had lunch at a resto where there is every kind of dishes, I ordered Nasi Lemak, the typical Malaysian dish that you need to try for sure. We ordered 11 dishes for 11 people, and the staff charged us for 15 or 16 dishes. The price was higher than I expected, so I checked the receipt, and it looked like they made a mistake by putting another table’s orders to ours. I had to argue with the manager as he said we ordered 16 dishes. After about 20 minutes of dispute and checking order slips, we got the refund of 5 items. It wasn’t a lot of money but things have to be straighten out, innit?
We went back to the hotel and decided to go to the top sunset point in KK. We asked to a taxi driver about the price for 11 people, and he suggested 2 7-seaters. The driver’s name is Din, and he ended up being our “escort” driver. He gave me his phone number to call whenever we need 2 taxis anywhere in KK. His price was not too bad with all his service, smile and punctuality.
The sunset was amazing. Beautiful, magnificent and speechless. We had some “Satay” after the sunset at the night food market on that sunset point.
There were no taxis left when we wanted to head home, so I called Din and he and his fellow driver came to pick us up.
After we came back, some of us went out to the central market to get some fruit, and we bought more satays because we couldn’t resist when we saw it.
The next day, went out to another mall for lunch, and we had Korean meal. Well, not my fault, my family members are not used to herbs and spices here.
After lunch, we went to an island for a beach. I did snorkeling for the first time in my life and I loved it! I will surely go again alone, even buy my own snorkel!
Today I sent my family off at the airport and came back to my hostel. This hostel is exactly how I expected. I went out for dinner with people from the hostel. A few dishes shared at a seafood market and a snack like crepe on a street stall.
I am loving my lone travel already.
