Shop till we drop

View 2009 Scuba with Barracuda on alexchan's travel map.

We ate a curry breakfast at the low-cost terminal of the airport (near our hotel) before heading to the city (KL Sentral) on the bus. Shopping is great in KL ... there is good choice at reasonable prices ... and it is a legal requirement to display prices unlike in Thailand or Singapore where the opening price will differ depending on what you look like. Having said that, the displayed price is highly negotiable but at least everyone starts at the same level.

Once in the city, we started at Mid-valley Mega Mall, then taxied to 1 Utama (both are big malls). Kim went to the doctora at Mid-valley to get his blocked ear checked out ... it turned out to be an inner ear infection and was given some medication. No antibiotics required ... which is quite a change from the scenario here where doctors oversell medication to prop up their income, since there isn't yet a requirement to separate medical consultation from dispensing.

After that we went back to the Bukit Bintang and Sungai Wang which are lower-class malls packed with goodies and a blind massage centre. Finally we ate at Pavilion, a top-notch mall nearby ... gving the Starhill Gallery a miss even though it had the most stylish ollection of eateries I've walked past.

We headed back to the airport hotel after dinner. It was a 13 hour day with only three apparels being purchased.
