We awoke fashionably late and and left our home late morning headed to the Medan Tuanku Monorail station. We had a few errands to run that involved several establishments in the Bukit Bintang area and the monorail ride will take us right to the very centre of it all.
We arrived at the Bukit Bintang Monorail Station five minutes later and the fare was RM3.10 each (approximately USD/EUR0.70). My spectacles snapped and our first errand was to visit Jimmy of Eye Smart Vision at the first floor of Sungei Wang Plaza. For only RM40 (approximately USD9/EUR8) I got my frames replaced.
We then headed a floor down to the Maybank ATM for our second errand, to replenish the 'Federal Reserves', then headed down to the lower ground floor. We walked into a pharmacy in search of pain relief patches (our third errand of the day) but to no avail. We then headed to Giant Supermarket and out onto the carpark and walked out.
We walked across Jalan Bulan 1 and into Plaza Low Yat, then took several escalators up to Level 2. Here we walked into Sri Computers for our fourth errand and got a 12V 2A adapter for RM25 (approximately USD6/EUR5) meant to power a string of LED lights that I had just bought.
We then headed a floor down for our fifth and final errand, which was to look for screen protectors. The first shop quoted a price of RM50 (approximately USD12/EUR11) and so we continued on along. The second shop then quoted a much more reasonable RM25 (approximately USD6/EUR5) and so a deal was done.
After that we took the elevator down to the ground floor and walked out of Plaza Low Yat, back into Sungei Wang Plaza. We then rode another elevator up to the third floor to have lunch at Vinh City. Cat had her customary Beef Noodle Soup while I had the Beef Fried Rice together with a round of Green Tea and a cup of excellent Vietnamese coffee.
Our very delightful Vietnamese meal cost RM41.50 (approximately USD10/EUR9). We rode another elevator down to the first floor and walked out of Sungei Wang Plaza, back to the Bukit Bintang Monorail Station. This time we disembarked two stops away at the Bukit Nanas Monorail Station, the fare was RM2.70 each (approximately USD/EUR0.60) and walked past the Terowong Bukit Nanas to the bus stand opposite the Dang Wangi LRT Station.
Here we eventually caught the GoKL Blue Line Free Bus that took us virtually to the doorstep of Plaza City One, and we safely got back home.
Lastly, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are now optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!
