We are going back to Kuala Lumpur!

Three glorious days went by in a flash, and we were already packing and getting ready to go.

We woke up at seven in the morning and headed out to a coffee shop nearby. Cat had a hankering for Koay Teow Th'ng and Kafe Evergreen was just the place for it. We both had the sample meal and together with drinks our breakfast came to RM17.20 (approximately USD/EUR4).

We then walked back to the hotel and finished packing. We checked out of the hotel at a quarter to nine, then hailed a Grab car to KOMTAR. The fare was RM7 (approximately USD/EUR2) and within five minutes we were at the Billion Star Express. Since we had an hour until boarding (10:15am) we walked around for a little bit then waited in the bus line's office. Our bus fare was RM33.50 each (approximately USD8/EUR7).

Our bus arrived at the appointed time, and it first headed to the Sungai Nibong Terminal Bus before heading across the Penang bridge to Penang Sentral in Butterworth.

We eventually left Butterworth at 12:00PM and enjoyed a comfortable ride until our first pitstop a couple of hours later somewhere near Parit Buntar, north of Taiping. It was here that we first learnt of the mechanical problems the bus driver faced with the bus.

It was nothing serious apart from the fact that he could not accelerate past 90 kilometres per hour! We were actually fine with the eventual delay it would cause since it meant the bus was incapable of speeding.

The bus resumed its journey south along the North South Expressway before making another pitstop in Behrang just north of Tanjung Malim.

We finally arrived in Kuala Lumpur at a quarter to five in the evening, and eventually reached KL Sentral. Our bus trip was delayed by two hours since we were supposed to arrive in KL Sentral at 3:00PM. No matter, so long as we arrived safely the two hours was not a huge loss to us.

We then walked over to the KFC to take away a pair of dinner plate sets and hailed a Grab car for RM17 (approximately USD/EUR4) which was a little expensive given that it was a Sunday evening.
We hope to make another trip to Penang really soon as there are so many other places that we want to visit.

Lastly, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are now optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!

We do what we can to support local businesses, and it's always good to know that everyone here observes all related SOPs, it helps make us feel safer and reassured.
