KL with bbb

Gee... thank God for lunch time otherwise i wouldnt be able to blog this space about the recent wonderful holiday i've completed last weekend =) 

So bbbbbb and i purchase some Groupon deals off the net weeks back and decided to enjoy a short getaway during the week of his birthday, over at our neighbouring country - Malaysia.... we chose KL since i was a country pumkin who dont recall ever being there.

we woke up pretty early that morning, having set the alarm clock at 6am... bbbbbb couldnt slp well the night before so he got up and prepare while i snooze till he had to lug me out..

We tried the circle line and reach doby ghaut earlier than expected.... thumbs up to new transport route!!

the assembly ground was arrange outside a wooooloooooooo hotel which i can no longer remember, not long later the bus arrive

We board the WTS 28 seater bus and it was really comfy, the journey was estimated at 5 hours so we had some time to nap away.

two pit stops, one lunch break and a toilet break later, we finally arrive at Furama (since the ride wasnt all that bad i wont complain much =)

i like the room!!!!!!!!~

Ok so here's the trick, i googled about Furama Bukit Bintang online before the trip and learn the hotel is relatively new having only open in July 2010, as a result renovation ares ongoing, some leakage expected but all it well, in addition i also manage to discover that we can request for a FREE upgrade of room IF we are nice to the staff.... and so i was -_<

upon checking in, i could see some foreigners making a big fuss out of having no extra rooms and the staff were distress, when it was my turn i smiled nicely at the ladies, wish them a good day and put on a sad (i WAS!!) face when i learnt bbbbbbbb and i were gonna sleep in twin single bed (i knew it was coming... wahahha) i told them it was my bf's 26th birthday and i was too afraid to slp by myself, hence, as a form of birthday present, would they be able to request for a queen size bed for us instead?

and so here was the story of how we landed up on the 18th storey, upgraded room, at no cost..! heehee... thanks to the google-girl == me!

after putting down our lightly packed luggage, we changed out of our long jeans into some comfy shorts and off to start some serious shopping ....

First up on the list was my wish to check out the Petronas Twin tower.... kkk i know how this was MEANT to be bbbbbbb's birthday holiday, but i was obviously the one enjoying more... teeheeheee...

it is truly a beautiful sight over at the twin tower, despite our embarressment joining all the other tourist taking pictures away (when logically speaking bbbbbbbb's half a malaysian) i cant help feeling all jittery at the thought that i've covered this scenery that i once only seen on poster and off google images.

We checked out KLCC Mall.. and it was a pretty space to shop in (but not buy things from since all the brands found there can easily be found in SG).

After which we board a LRT like-a-local two stations down to Petaling Street, also known as the pirated goods streets or the Chinatown market... bbbbbbbbb was all raving about it since his previous trip there... we bought SOME stuff but not too many... i wanted to put our bargaining skill to test and got myself a pretty fake tiff&co necklace to match my real earrings... and the price of $75 was eventually bidded down till $40, which was only S$20. i consider myself lucky =)

This fried noodle can be found at a hidden corner of Petaling Street, simply lookout for the 8-bao-char stall, and right behind it is a hidden hawker....

bbbbbbbbb's siblings' been raving about it non-stop and how can we miss the fun? I tried it (abeit replacing the noodle with Kway Tiao).... and it REALLY taste good...

i can see why everyone declare this food item a MUST-TRY! the other rave was their chilli fish but bbbbbbb and i had plans to da-bao food to eat in the hotel room (suppose to be the "luxury" we declare for our holiday) so we didnt get to try the fish.

The night ended with Celup (anything on satay sticks you bring on a plate, get the person to BBQ it or you boil it urself, grab their specially blended sauces and EAT!, Wanton soup, spicy dry noodle...

We grab the dinner while catching TV in our hotel suite... i like the feeling of not having to give a damn about "table ettiquette"..... and den we fell asleep....

Here's us both waking up late for brekkie (since it was provided in house)........ bbbbbbb had a hard time convincing me to get up.. so i was grounchy for a while... i.e see my swollen eye... this happens if i wake up UNNATURALLY... hahaha

*and i really like my Tinkerbell hoodie, whatever you say... it cost me merely S$4 - F-O-U-R dollars off Gmarket.... call me a genius!
the breakfast was so-so... we wanted to check out all the malls near our hotel, so as soon as we freshen up, we covered... --- Sungei Wang, Berjaya Time Square... and that took up the whole day!

No pictures since i was too busy shopping... the malls are fantastic... i like how most of the shop had flat rate.... one shop sells EVERYTHING for RM25, the other RM20, the other RM30.... and so it was easy to work out a budget to complete my shopping...

which came up to this -------------------->

i got all this with the mere S$400 or so dollars bbbbbbb budget for my shopping.... good deal! and this was only slightly more than half of our shopping, bbbbbbbb also got a hair cut, we got Krispy Kreme for our journey, some local food and had a AWESOME massage over here!

i know how, for years, i've rejected foot massage for fear my feet were too sensitive... infact once.. bbbb wanted to prove it wasnt such a big deal to be massage on the foot and in return i gave him a very very bad kick....

but i regretted because Foot reflexology is toooooooo GOOD.

I had my virgin experience with Pau/Clar-Angels at China town and the one who was screaming wasnt me! haha... some say the body is healthy so you dont feel the pain... perhaps for mine was because i was too SURPRISE at the comfort it brings... thus... i had forgotten to scream?!

anyway....i got my foot reflexology done at this underground massage parlor called  and after telling the masseur i had my "period"... she went gentle on my foot while placing a hot charcoal pack on my shoulder, my abdominal... the pain subside with the hot pack.. i MUST get one!

anyway i cant remmeber the rest.. because i fell asleep... so soundly bbbbbbb said he heard my usual snooze (by snooze he meant snore but my snore is silence... so all you hear is very very faint breathing in a weird momentum

we met up with bbbbbbb's sis and sis-in-law-to-be on the last day so we skipped the coach ride back to SG.... we tried more local food (Assam laksa, beef ball noodles... etc..) and finally left KL for SG around 5plus..

bbbbbb grabbing some nap before he takes over the wheel from his sis-in-law-to-be for the next half of the journey back to SG...

and that sums up the entire KL trip... which i really enjoyed! (so did bbbbb... or so i hope!)...

next up wil be his actual birthday.. more awesomeness from his dear family... and the desserts we grab... YUMS!

a shout out to CLARINDA FOO ANGEL!!! who is under the threat of bomb attack over at Germany right at this moment, please be safe, contact me ASAP if you are safe... and Happy birthday my sweetest doll!!!
