Our weekend began with a walk south along Jalan Munshi Abdullah headed to the bus stop in front of Jakel Mall. We had a hankering for some Borsch soup and knew just where to get it.
We were caught by surprise by the sudden emergence of the Rapid KL bus #300 that we did not have time to film it, and hastily got on board. Since it was a double decker bus, we made our way to the upper deck and got ourselves seated at the front.
The bus drove along Jalan Munshi Abdullah then turned right onto Jalan Dang Wangi before it then turned left onto Jalan Ampang.
In a little while we got off at Hotel Maya bus stop beside Wisma Selangor Dredging and walked northeast along Jalan Ampang. At the KLCC intersection we continued northeast onto Jalan Yap Kwan Seng.
We arrived at Megan Avenue 2 and made our way to Central Asia Restaurant to have a Caucasus inspired Uzbek lunch, complete with the Borsch soup we were hankering for.
An hour later we made our way southwest along Jalan Yap Kwan Seng before continuing onto Jalan Ampang at the KLCC intersection. We then walked across Jalan Ampang and made our way into Suria KLCC.
We then exited onto the esplanade outside of Suria KLCC and made our way to the Simfoni Lake, and KLCC Park. We spent some time exploring but the heat was a deterrence for us to continue any further. Also we noticed quite a fair bit of paths and walkways cordoned off, which further cut short our walkabout around KLCC Park.
Oh well, we'll be back some other time when the weather and cordons were less prohibitive.
We then walked back into Suria KLCC and out again onto Jalan Ampang where we waited for a free GoKL City Bus, specifically the Green Line that would take us to Bukit Bintang. After a little wait we boarded the bus and eventually got off at Wisma Cosway across from Pavilion.
We then waited for another free GoKL City Bus, this time the Blue Line that would take us back to Jalan Munshi Abdullah. We caught the Blue Line bus and alighted at the Capsquare bus stop.
We then walked to Semua House to get ourselves some refreshments from the Tea Live stall before walking into City One Plaza to get ourselves a couple of shawarmas for dinner.
With that we end our post for this week, but please stay tuned as we hope to cover the Merdeka (Independence) Day celebrations in a few short days.
Lastly, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are now optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!
