Kuala Lumpur, December 23rd 2011
Satisfied admiring the blue wall in my room, which is exactly the kind of my favorite blue, I couldn't wait to be in Kinokuniya. My main target this day was to hunt for some Chinese books, which are HSK sample test book and Berlitz Mandarin. I reached for my suitcase to get out my sandals. But... click... click... eh?? The digital lock on my suitcase refused to click open. I didn't have time to change the number combination and normally factory's setting is "000" isn't it? I felt cold sweat on my shoulder. What if I can't open my suitcase? Would I have to cut it? And then buy a new one now? How much will it cost? Ah... I prayed harder. Suddenly... CLICK! Tara!
Once again I had to endure a long queue at KL Sentral Station to board on a Rapid KL to KLCC which is only one stop away. It seemed like half of the world had flocked into KL. It took longer for me to get the ticket than the ride itself from KL Sentral to KLCC.
In KLCC Suria's Kinokuniya, my hands trembled on the bookshelf. There were so many HSK books. It wasn't easy to make up which ones to buy. I also got the Berlitz Mandarin book I had been looking for. This one I might need while in China. Uh... it seems it's no good to stay in Kinokuniya too long. You know why.
KLCC Suria that evening was extra-merry. Christmas carols from the first floor filled the air. People, old and young, black and white, hustled and bustled around. Everyone, everything, were telling me: Your vacation is here.
For dinner, I choose "Nasi Tomat" at La Cucur still in KLCC Suria. It cost 8,5 ringgit.
To add my collection of Petronas Twin Tower shots, I searched for the best spot outside, but it wasn't easy either. Now and then people would block my view. Anyway, here are some of them. No tripod.
This one is a product of Canon Powershot G12. Actually I wanted to try G12 on a slower shutter speed. Too bad I forgot that I had my mini tripod in my backpack. I could have attached it to G12.
This one is the product of Canon EOS 7D.
Ah... I've never made a horizontal format of Petronas Twin Tower before.
Before returning back to my hotel, I shopped for oat snacks at Cold Storage. Wow... there are many kinds of oat snacks from Quacker and other factories here.
