Yesterday – day 2. The going-ons picked up a little in pace and so does the photo-taking. Let’s get to it. Morning was waking up to a bowl of curry mee, or laksa. Look at that and drool.
After lunch my cousins headed to Sungei Wang together with my aunty. Once there, first priority was getting a prepaid SIM card. Much cheaper than using roaming especially when you have to be in a place for more than a few days. And then somewhat predictably, we headed off to the arcade in Berjaya Times Square.
After much fun and frivolity reliving my precious youth with my 14 year old cousin, it was time to meet up with Yue-Chin to head off for dinner at The Green Lotus. She and I were the first to be there at 7:50pm.
The guest of honour – Mili and her husband Simon visiting from the UK, and the rest arrived a little bit later. Mili’s good friend Audrey whose blog I have also been reading was there, along with a few people who I managed to got along with really well. They were a riot.
It was very good to have met Mili in person at long last after knowing each other online for 1.5 years through each other’s blogs. This was the first time that Yue-Chin is meeting Mili too.
YC wanted me to put these two photos side-by-side: the one on the left is from last year. Yes she still has that stretchiness. 🙂
Living up to her reputation of being a big eater (who doesn’t gain weight), we took a short walk up the road to Lecka Lecka where YC got some ice-cream for dessert.
After milling around deciding where to go, we settled on Bed located on the Asian Heritage Row. Only problem was for some reason the door bitch didn’t want to let our group in. I wasn’t privy to the conversation but the end result was that we ordered a bottle of Chivas and had it at their outside bar instead. Yue-Chin left us to join her friends at another club around this time.
It was a blessing in disguise that we didn’t get in because I think we had more fun sitting outside a round table where we could talk to each other normally. Mili really got into the drinks, drinking like she wasn’t going to touch alcohol again. “Whatever happens in Bed, stays in Bed.” Heh.
Here she is pouring us another round of drinks and yelling, “Drink up!”
This is Asian Heritage Row the left, and with my new found friends Simon, Justin and Elvin. Mili titled me the “friends poacher” because I hit it off with her friends almost immediately.
We finished off the bottle of Chivas after about an hour and a half. During which time we got hungry. As is typical of all Malaysian nightspots, there is a “mamak” or Indian-Muslim food stall nearby. So naturally that was where we gravitated towards. Among other things, we had maggi goreng, satay, nasi lemak and teh-tarik.
So ends another day in Malaysia. I might spend New Year’s Eve with my new found friends.
