Jalan-jalan, cari......

This Raya hol, we took the kids out to 'hang-kai'. It's also meant to be a treat to the maid.Thinking that it would be a good spend some quiet time in KL, we headed to the KLCC Park, with the thought of going to KL Aquaria. Parking was quite easily available and only at RM1 per entry at the carpark beside it.

As we were walking towards the park, I was really surprised to see tons of human beings lepakking around there. Well, we proceeded to walk towards KLCC and boy, for the first time in my life, I felt like a stranger in my very own country. I turn left, I see foreigners. I turn right, I see foreigners. I turn around 360 degrees, I see foreigners!! They are everywhere... Bangladeshis, Indonesians, Myanmar(ians?), Nepalese, Thai. Hehehe, I pulak felt like the tourist now.

The pool was packed with kids and the female guard there was shouting over her speaker over and over and over to tell some (brainless) adults to R.E.M.O.V.E. their shoes before entering the water... Duh! Some nuts these people are! Kids are playing in the water leh.... Hmm..... no wonder our public toilet is pathetically unhygienic.

Well, speaking of toilets, I was scouting around for the toilet in KLCC to wash my kids' milk bottles and the very first toilet I went to was the PREMIUM toilet. Haiyo, pay RM2 just to wash bottles? It was jam packed everywhere, inside KLCC, outside KLCC, inside the LRT, at the LRT station, well... except the car park I suppose. Head also pening already. So, we decided to leave a.s.a.p.


But then, it's a public holiday, so they get a day (or more) off, so it's understandable that they too want to 'hang-kai' like us. Didn't take us long to get out of that crowded place.

It's so nice to stay at home and lepak. Tomorrow, I'm cooking one of my favourite dish, Sayur Lodeh, which I learnt to cook from my hubby's aunt's maid. yummy yummy....

i stayed at home nearly the whole of this holiday season... very relaxing but couldn't help wondering if we shd have planned something since these long stretch holidays are hard to come by

KLCC sure very packed (with foreigner) during festive season but for non-festive period, it wasn't that bad. We went to the KLCC's water park prior the long holiday and it wasn't packed at all.

We went to the Aquaria on the 1st day of Hari Raya and damn regreted...the Aquaria was sooooooooo crowded and hot! If you want to go, I suggest you to go on weekday to avoid the crowd!

I experienced that before, during these kinds of holidays, the whole place will be cram with foreign worker, and can be very noisy and busy.

Btw, where is the premium toilet?
