Mall Hopping 3

нello everyone! we are caт and нarold. welcoмe тo oυr blog, creaтed ιn нonoυr oғ oυr devoтιon тo тнe everyday ғood ғor тнe everyday perѕon, aѕ well aѕ тo caтalogυe oυr мeмorιeѕ, lιғe'ѕ evenтѕ, and тravelѕ wнere oυr 'perυт' (тυммy) leadѕ тнe way!

If yesterday's walkabout was about t-shirts, then today it’s all about shoes! Cat was looking to get a pair of platform sneakers and so we our day began with a free GO KL bus ride that took us to KL Sentral.  We breakfast at NU Sentral at a place called to Nyonya Colours, then made our way down to the Muzium Negara MRT station. 

We caught a train to the Bandar Utama MRT station fifteen minutes later. Walking out of the station and at 1 Utama were confronted with Sports Direct. We browsed for a bit and Cat fancied a couple of shoes by Puma and Skechers. She decided against buying first, in case she found a better deal elsewhere. I on the other hand splurged on four pairs of Lonsdale boxing vests, which in my defense were on sale.

We then walked into 1 Utama Shopping Centre and and came upon a Skechers store. Nothing struck our fancy though and walked across to Footlocker where a pink Converse caught Cat's eye. Another one for her list, we then made our way up to the Converse store on the second floor where we hoped to see more varieties.

Alas, the Converse store on the second floor was tiny and unmanned. We then browsed a Puma store nearby but did not have the platform sneakers that Cat was after. We strolled along the second floor for a bit and made our way back to the ground floor, since Cat had made up her mind to get the platform Puma sneakers that she saw at Sports Direct.

We made our way back to Sports Direct and Cat tried the sneakers on only to find it a little tight. Alas it was the last pair and we dejectedly walked out of the store, firm in the resolve to take our hunt online. We walked back to the Bandar Utama MRT station and a short one-station train ride to the Mutiara Damansara MRT station.

We arrived and upon disembarking was stunned to see The Curve a little more than a ghost town. We were told that The Curve practically shut down soon after the pandemic. We strolled along the desolate walkways and made it across the pedestrian bridge to IPC Shopping Centre which thankfully showed plenty of signs of life. IPC must be thanking their lucky stars that IKEA is its anchor tenant.

At IPC Shopping Centre we browsed what in our minds was the largest Skechers store we have ever been to, but again nothing struck our fancy. We then entered another shoe store called Original Classics but alas it did not have the platform sneakers Cat was after. 

As a diversion we walked into LC Waikiki and then Brands Outlet which seemed to pick Cat's spirits up. It was lunch time, most eateries here full so we thought we would head back home. As we were making our way to the Mutiara Damansara MRT station we came upon a Western Asian fusion restaurant which was not busy and ended up having lunch there.

We had a great lunch at OneDeLand and walked to the Mutiara Damansara MRT station to catch a train back to KL Sentral. A twenty-minute train ride later and we were back at the Muzium Negara MRT station and thought we would catch another free GO KL bus back home. After waiting at the bus stand for a few minutes a bus arrived but was full. Not being one for crowded places and confined spaces we decided against waiting for another bus and hailed a Grab car to get home instead.

With that we end our adventurising for today, and hope to go on bring all of you along for another walkabout real soon!
