Short trip to KL 5 & 6 Sept

RY has a condo in KL and the tenant just moved out so we went to KL last Sat to meet up with the tenant for hand-over of the apartment.

Woke up at 4.45am to boil the red dates/ dang sheng/ wolfberries tea to bring to KL and did last min packing.
RY had a late night and only woke up at 5.15am.
Left home about 6.15am but there was a jam at the 2nd link custom - both SG and MY side.

Arrived KL Park Royal hotel (opposite to Sungei Wang) at 10.30am and couldnt check-in yet as the room was not ready.
Went to Sungei Wang for brunch - eaten fish porridge, beef kway teoh and cha siew bao (the bao was not very nice and shall not order next time).
RY went to Maybank to remit some cash to his mom and also exchange some RM to pay for our expenses in KL.

Did some window shopping and went back to hotel at 12.30pm.
The room (1111) wass ready but its quite disppointing since the carpet was wet and the air-con temp couldn't be adjusted.
We were freezing but since it was only for a night plus the rate was cheap (RM215 nett with breadkfast) and rather a hassle to move in/ out, so we endured.

After resting for about  an hour, we went to shop in Lot 10 and I bought a black top from Mphosis while RY bought 3 shirts from Isetan.
Continue shopping in Pavillion and had tea and cake at the cafe in Pavillion (cant remember the name but its outside next to Club Monaco outlet).  The choco/ cheese cake was RM14 while the tea cost RM8 for a small pot, so the total bill came up to RM24 after the services charge and taxes.

As RY was meeting the tenant at 8pm for the key hand over, we deceided to have early dinner.
We went to the 6th floor to check out the fine dining and found out that the credit cards got some promo with the Viet restaurant ( Citibank 20% off ala carte and 50% off appetizer for 2 main course ordered), chinese restaurant has 30% off all ala carte food item with Citibank, the italian restaurant has 15% discount if pay via Amex.
To save money, we decided to eat at the food court in basement.

I had viet beef noodle set RM12.90 and it came with tang hoon salad, 2 fried poh piah.
RY ordered Thai tom yam with rice noodle (RM8.70).
I didnt try his tom yam since i need to abstain from seafood for a month.

I also had a Beard PaPa cream puff as dessert (RM3.80).

It was about 7pm and we need to go back to hotel so that RY can meet the tenant at his condo at 8pm.

I was alone in hotel while RY went out.
Waited till 10pm and finally received his call that he's caught in traffice jam.

I fell asleep when he knock on the door, it was 11.15pm!
The KL traffic jam is really scary!!

The next morning woke up at 7am to wash up for breakfast at 8am.
The buffet spread was ok but not as good as those in Hilton Sentral (it's my favourite hotel).
Check out the hotel at 11am to go to RY's condo to do some cleaning as meeting potential new tenant at 2pm.

Its fun to watch RY do all the cleaning, while I read newspaper leisurely.
RY speficially told me not to do anything, just sit there and read and dont move .........., which I did.......

The cleaning finished JIT at1.50pm and RY went to have his shower.
The potneital tenant came at 2pm sharp.

The viewing finsihed at about 3pm and we pack-up and have lunch at Pizza Hut (missed the Bak Kueh Teh as they close at 1pm).
After lunch, RY turned back to his aprtment to check if he has forgotten to tighten the tap (to prevent water dripping from the toilet bowl pipe).

Finally drove off KL at 5pm .......... only stopped once to pump petrol and a toilet stop............ reach SG before 8.30pm ............

In 2 weeks time we'll be going to KL again to do serious cleaning and fixing of the apartment.
I think there'll be massive traffic jam due to the Hari Raya holiday ...........
Next time I'll do some serious shopping & dining to make myself happy ..........
