Happy NRP Phase 4 Kuala Lumpur! 

As usual we had a few errands to run this Saturday morning and headed out to Sunway Putra Mall, a shopping centre steeped in history that for some reason is intertwined with mine. We were looking to pay the MAX store here a visit, as well as have us some Korean cuisine for lunch.

The millennial spent the entire night gaming into the morning with his UNIMAS friends, so we decided to let him sleep in.

We touched on this mall some time ago. So to recap, I first came to Kuala Lumpur as a teenager in 1986 and at about the same time a shopping complex, known as "The Mall", was opened.  At the time, "The Mall" was the largest shopping centre in Malaysia and housed Malaysia's first Yaohan store which operated from the mall's opening in 1987 until 1997 before its bankruptcy in Japan.

This mall brings back memories since it is situated across the street from the Putra World Trade Centre and the Seri Pacific Hotel, as well as the Hentian Duta bus terminal that used to serve express buses heading to the East Coast (including my hometown of Kuala Terengganu). Anyone travelling to or from the East Coast would have at one time or another been to "The Mall".

In March 2011, "The Mall" was acquired by Sunway in a public auction and soon embarked on a refurbishment exercise in May 2013. After two long years (during which time all its tenants had to move out) it was reopened as "Sunway Putra Mall" in May 2015.

We had lunch at Myeongdong Topokki and headed down to meet our good friend Shah at the lobby of the mall. We will soon be on our trip to my hometown of Kuala Terengganu in a few days’ time, so please stay tuned!
