Exploring Chinatown

With only 4 hours of sleep, we dragged ourselves from bed to prepare for our first day in KL. After a quick breakfast of buttered toast with jam, we hit the streets of Chinatown.

Kota Raya Shopping Complex

We exchanged some more ringgits at a nearby money changer and headed to the famous Jalan Petaling.

Soya Milk

Wooden Slippers or "Bakya"

Batik Pants

We stumbled upon this accessories shop and my friends went nuts at the sight of it and started to hoard necklaces and bangles.

Transit Point Bed & Breakfast

We had our lunch at a Chinese restaurant somewhere in this area. (on a separate post)

and continued our walking tour afterwards...

this hotel doesn't allow bringing of durians. hehe.

Chinese lanterns

Taxi "teksi" stop

Reggae Guesthouse along Jalan Tun HS Lee

Kasturi Walk

You can find lots of stuff being sold here.

Nikon Store

Palmmers Guest House

Aside from clothes and souvenirs, a lot of local food are also being sold here.

Putu Bambu

some dried fruits and other snacks

Central Market - built in 1888 and considered a Malaysian heritage site. This used to be a wet market and now houses stalls selling handicrafts and other souvenirs.

It was mid-afternoon so imagine the heat. We hurriedly went inside the building and good thing it's airconditioned. We went straight to the stores selling snacks and we bought some pasalubongs. We also found a few restaurants like Secret Recipe. We went to the second floor and saw some Buddha images and cool home decors. Lots of local clothing are sold upstairs. My friends were able to buy some cool batik pants. The seller happened to be a Filipina.

We were headed to Putrajaya next but we stopped first by this stall and bought some waffles. I loved the peanut butter and chocolate. Calories! Yes!
