Ivan, Jennifer and I woke up at 4:30 am on September 17, 2009. We walked to wait for the coach that was taking us to the airport. It arrived 25 minutes late. The ride to the airport took an hour and a half.
Jennifer got stopped because her name didn’t match her visa. She wasn’t sure why they didn’t notice that when we arrived in Australia. The lady asked her what her occupation was. She said mime and the lady didn’t even crack a smile at all. Obviously Australians have NO sense of humour!
People often ask me what my surname name is. Its ‘Monkey’. First name is Dave – middle name is ‘The’…surname is Monkey.
I slept on the plane for awhile. Ivan and Jen watched Weeds, the movie Adventureland and a great movie called Mum and Dad. The 8 hour flight went by pretty fast.
We arrived in Kuala Lumpur around 3 pm. We got a taxi to the hotel.
We checked in to the 5 Elements Hotel in Chinatown. The room is very modern, but the bathroom wasn’t anything special. We all had a nice hot shower.
We went to Nando’s for dinner. I got a banana and chicken kebab. Ivan got the chicken burger. Jennifer had the chicken pita.
We got a taxi to the Mid Valley mall. We shopping for a bit. We went back to hotel in a taxi.
Sorry for the lack of photos, some of photos got corrupted.
Ivan, Jennifer and I had lunch in Chinatown on September 18, 2009. Ivan and Jennifer had noodles with chicken. I had some noodles with bananas.
We got a taxi to Plaza Low Yat. We went shopping in there for computer accessories. It started raining.
We walked to Sungei Wang for more shopping. Jennifer got a facial and wax done. Ivan and I shopped during her facial. Jennifer got a haircut as well.
We walked to Times Square Mall. Ivan and Jennifer bought a few Baby Milo t-shirts.
For dinner, we went to Tamarind Hill. It’s an overpriced Thai restaurant. Ivan and Jennifer started off with the prawn and chicken sticks. They thought it would be kebabs, but they were deep fried in a rice paper wrapping. The sticks didn’t have much flavor. The service was super slow here. It took over 10 minutes to get our drink order. Ivan and Jen shared the mango and salmon soup which had a nice broth. I had banana pad thai which was okay. Ivan and Jennifer shared the pandan pesto chicken and the very plain cod. The design of the restaurant was nice. But, we didn’t have good service and the food wasn’t anything special. It was overall a pretty terrible meal.
We got a taxi back to the hotel and went to bed.
