2013 Railfans Trip Across Malaya (Malaysia and Singapore) Part 19 of 20

Although I failed to purchased Keropok Trengganu as gift, I still didn’t gave up my effort, and head to the nearby supermarket, Jusco, after I returned back to Maluri.

From the pedestrian bridge, I could see the construction project that took place nearby. I don’t understand what do they built in here?  This construction work really adding several hundred meters to my already tiring and treacherous journey between the LRT station and hotel. My hotel is behind me in this picture, whereas the Jusco supermarket parking lot can be seen on the right. Two of KL’s famed landmarks: Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower looms in the background.


Quite amazing that some of the pedestrian access is roofed. This really gave protection for pedestrians from rain. Although not all pedestrian areas in KL are roofed, but it’s really better than nothing.


Once I entered the Jusco supermarket, I browse to see whether if they sell the Keropok Trengganu over there. To my disappointment, apparently they don’t have it. So as a replacement, I bought some chili sauces that don’t exist in Indonesia, such as Thai chili sauce or Lingham chili sauce.

After I paid the bills, I returned back to the hotel, where we checked out from the hotel.

I have to say, the hotel really lived up its name. The garden looks very lush and fresh.


But don’t be deceived by its appearance. The grass, the trees, and even all vegetation in this picture are all made from plastic!


After we cleared all of the administration and fee matter with the hotel, we waited for the taxi.


We decided to take the taxi, as hauling our luggage to the LRT station is just unbearable.

Once our taxi arrived we head straight to KL Sentral station, to catch the ERL to LCCT.

By coincidence, bang Noor (which took us around Gemas and Malacca) apparently is in Kuala Lumpur, after a night driving duty.  So we decided to meet him at KL Sentral.

He invited us for a lunch at KL Sentral’s food court.


We ordered some meal there. I ordered this Ais Kacang.


This is my brother’s meal: a claypot rice with unidentified topping.


Mine is also claypot rice, with different topping.


We talked a lot during our lunchtime. I forgot what was the topic, but  he was glad that we could see each other again. I think he and bang Johari were the people that I met more than once during our journey.

Before we depart, we decided to take picture together.


After we finished our meal, we decided to change our Ringgit and Singapore dollars to Rupiah. The problem was, it was Friday. And since all of the money changers are owned by Indian Moslems (and they don’t seem to employ anyone whose are not obliged to attend Friday congregation) all of the are closed! So we have no choice but to bring them all the way home.

We were supposed to come to the Mosque, but since our flight schedule coincide with Friday congregation, we couldn’t attend them.

Soon we bade farewell, and we catch the train to Sepang airport.


Along the way, we catch the glimpse of Sungai Besi airport. Back in 2011, I thought it would be the last time I’d see the airport. Apparently there  is another chance, although I’m doubtful if I’d see this airport again.





To be continued.

    If you check the local MRT thread in Skyscrapercity.com, you will realize it is already in progress since last year…lots of updates there

    Yup, that’s MRT construction. It is underground, about 24 m below the ground.
