Trip to KL January 2010

My mom went back to Jakarta from 11-25 Jan so we thought instead of taking leave and just staying at home to take care of Michelle, we should go for another holiday. Since we are on a tight budget, we didn't want to take airplane and of course the most obvious destination is either Johor or KL. I don't really want to spend 4 days just to stay in Johor so we opt for KL instead. Shopping here I come!!!!

We left home quite late because we are waiting on news whether my brother is going to get his new job (too long story to tell lah..) so anyway I think we left home about 5:30 or maybe that's the time we reach Singapore custom (can't remember lah!) and we reached KL at about 11 PM.. hahaha.. latest ever loh!

The next day, we went to a mall near our hotel for brunch... the food looks good but somehow I think they lack of taste, like the sukiyaki not sweet enough, the chawanmushi is too plain, etc.

Pictures are deceiving.. hahaha.. I think the mall name is Fahrenheit (if I'm not wrong) and one of the floor in that mall sells accessories (lots and lots of them) and I nearly went crazy buying all sorts of hair accessories and things to hang on bags!

At night, we also goes for supper. Or rather supper comes to us because my hubby is the one who walks to Jalan Alor to get the famous BBQ chicken wings! Those wings are super yummy loh, I think I probably ate about 10 of them throughout my whole stay in KL... yucks chicken hormone overloaded!

First day is dedicated to shopping, so after lunch at Fahrenheit, we.. ahem.. I, must go to Pavilion. My main mission is to buy some skincare and make up stuff from Shu Uemura because their price is about 15% cheaper compared to Singapore! So I always get them from either Johor or KL... save money lah... but the Shu Uemura counter at Pavilion was so crowded. I'm not sure if that was a special day in Malaysia but there were a lot of people getting makeover done there. So I told my hubby perhaps I would get my make-up stuff from the KLCC outlet instead.

Some photos at Pavilion... my hubby looks so guniang in the flowery picture LOL!

Since the trip is a little bit longer, we also got to try the facility in the hotel, mainly the swimming pool. It was super duper cold but my hubby wanted to try it and we also brought Michelle's swimming stuff but I think they swam for less than 10 minutes hahaha icy cold water lah! It is indoor swimming pool, and they should have warm up the water or something...

Michelle also got special treat during the trip.. chocolate!!! I didn't have fun washing the bibs afterwards! But I feel so smart that I made her wear the bibs, otherwise I would be washing her top and overall!

We also had a chance to drive up to Colmar Tropical. My hubby wanted to drive to Cameroon Highlands (which is another 2 hour drive from KL) which I think is a nightmare because Michelle wont sit still in the car and I will have to entertain her for 2 straight hours! Anyway, Colmar Tropical is really nice if you're into very relaxing kind of holiday and not the shopping or city-sightseeing kind. It looks like those kind of place which has everything and so you just need to stay inside there the whole time. It has a kid playing place like Timezone but they only have kiddy rides.

We also went to Malacca just to go to Jonker Walk.. never take photos though coz too busy shopping. My slipper bottom layer came off when we were walking there so I bought a pink Facebook slippers :D

Anyway, shopping is so fun! I wanna go again!
