The last time I was at KL was in 2011. With a bunch of 10 fellow CNM honours friends, most of whom I’m no longer in contact with. And another trip just a few weeks or months down with a group of girlfriends whom I fondly call the MSG/HDL girls because of our common memories made over food.
This time, its with my NIE batchmates, an amazing group of foodies who are a great support in this difficult profession.
Three noteworthy food places to visit if you’re there:
1. The breakfast thieves
2. Shin Kee beef noodle specialist
So good, I had 2, while the friends shared a 2nd bowl of beef ball soup.
3. Village Park Restaurant Nasi Lemak
So glad I announced that I was” not gonna share”
Others worth noting:
4. The eatery our Grab driver recommended when we asked him what was good at Jalan Alor. Turned out really yummy but not special nor mind blowing like the others above. It was a typical good zichar. We scrambled for seats and sat precariously under a tree. Witnessed bird droppings landing right on our table but was quickly cleared away by their excellently efficient cleaning staff. We waited about an hour for our food and while it didn’t disappoint, we don’t think we’d wait for it again
5. The view from our Airbnb apartment at Platinum Suites (The Face)
We didn’t manage to swim as we fiercely went about having good food, but it sure was a well needed time of relaxation.
Back to work tomorrow though its the September holidays, and I hope it all pays off with this batch of students.
