KL Tour -Part II

As promised, this is part II of my KL City Tour..from the Lake Gardens & National Monument visits earlier on, we move on to KLCC.... (ok-lah..tis one I've visited like a zillion times already...)

This is how Mark conquered the twin towers.. and became a Tarzan in KLCC Park.

Popped by at the Eye On Malaysia for some ferris wheel ride .......(yawwwnnns*)... This thing's gonna be around prolly till end of this year before the mat-salleh's pack it up.. Costs bout RM15 for each pax to go ride in the gondolas which can house 8 people at one go.

What caught my attention was there's this one VIP gondola which is heavily tinted and has DVD player, tv & internet access in it...Heck! who'd wanna watch TV or surf the web when they're supposed to be enjoying the view of KL city! Weird..

Dataran Merdeka (Merdeka Square) was next on the list...

At the back of me is the Magistrate Court (not sure whether still being used now or not).

Pix is taken on the same ground where our first prime minister declared independence of this country 50 yrs ago...and as u can see our country's flag is , proudly flying high up in the sky majestically......
but lookin bck 2days before we were there, this same field was totally submerged underwater due to heavy evening downpour which lasted for a few hrs. The whole city centre came to a standstill and the underground parking beneath this field was filled wit flood waters all the way up to the roof. Not to mentioned the amount of damaged it did to the cars trapped inside.

"Suckers" were still seen... well....sucking flood waters out fr the underground carpark while we were there.. gosh..wat an ugly sight..

Petronas Twin Towers Skybridge

Went back to KLCC for the Twin Towers Skybridge Tour which is free-of-charge in the evenin after walkin around Central Market for awhile with locals trying to con this gwailo who's wit me and even myself !..
The skybridge of this twin-towers is located on Level 61 of this twin 88 storey mega structure with some watever flexible, rotating shafts and ball-bearing..blablabla for it to sway bout few degrees if there's strong winds. After spending like 10mins up there, we go to Starbucks for some coffee & pastries before joining the crowd in Chinatown (Petaling Street -lah)..

Last Stop: Petaling Street -Chinatown..

"Shue-cheong-kai" as it is popularly a hot-spot for everything FAKE under the sun.. YES! everything's fake here `cept for us ..the shoppers. U can literally find every branded items here in this 2 rows of stalls selling every latest collection from the likes of Gucci, MNG, Versace to Rolex, TAG's to ...everything..u name it..they've got it.

Lotsa bargaining action going on there with those shopkeepers acknowledging Mark as "bra-duhh..., fren....kawan"....Managed to get some souvenirs that he's bringin back home for the people there as well as some other items after some hard bargaining.

Had some supper after all the walkin' around and bargaining till near midnite...

Well...that concludes my KL City Tour for tis time around...
Indeed it was an eye-opener to have been to at least some of the attractions in the city after such a long time... all done in one day..
