In our previous post we planned to acquire a second DJI Pocket 2 (pre-loved unit) as backup to our current unit from a seller we found on Carousell today. The seller backed out of the deal at the eleventh hour, so we ended up with no fixed plans for today.
In the end we slept in again and only got going at about noon. With nothing much planned we walked to the Bandaraya LRT Station and caught a train to Pudu for a fare of RM1.60 each (approximately USD/EUR0.30). We then walked to Pudu Plaza, but since it was already lunchtime, we decided to first have chicken rice at the Fatt Kee Roast Duck & Chicken stall across the street.
Maybe it has been a while since we were last here, but we had the distinct impression it was not as delicious as we remembered. Oh well, our lunch including a round of iced Chinese Tea came to RM25.40 (approximately USD/EUR3.50).
While we had lunch it began to rain heavily and by the time we were done it still did not subside. We put up our umbrellas and walked across the street to Pudu Plaza, our main destination for the day. We had run out of sliced cheddar cheese, so we walked into The Store supermarket to get a several dozen slices that were on sale for RM16.39 per two dozen (approximately USD/EUR5).
We then walked into YL Camera to ask about the DJI Action 3 camera and was told that it would only be out on sale in November. We can hardly wait! Since we were there we browsed around, and I took a fancy to a camera sling bag. The Tenba BYOB 10 camera bag usually retails for RM329 (approximately USD/EUR70) so when the salesperson offered it to me for RM200 it was a deal I could not walk away from.
Fearing another sweet deal we paid for the bag and quickly made our way out of Pudu Plaza.
We walked for a little while and found ourselves at the bus stop in front of the D'Majestic Place along Jalan Pudu. With nothing planned we decided to catch a Rapid KL bus #450 for a fare of RM1.90 each (approximately USD/EUR0.40). We got down a few stops later and after a short walk we found ourselves at Sunway Velocity Mall!
A mall that we were not familiar with, we strolled around for a little bit before we decided to have a drink at O’Brien’s Irish Sandwich Cafe. Déjà vu! our beverages cost us RM27.75 (approximately USD/EUR6) which was again a little more than what we paid for lunch. Oh well, it is what it is.
We spent half an hour at O’Brien’s enjoying our drinks while indulging in some people-watching. I then thought of paying the Adidas store here a visit to see if they have the jersey of my favourite football (soccer) team in my size. Alas the Adidas store on the ground floor did not have football jerseys we made our way up to the third floor to see if the store there had it.
Yes! The Adidas store on the third floor had my size and I was the proud owner of a Red Devils jersey. We then made our way down to the first floor and walked across the Maluri Link Bridge. We then walked for a while and considered catching the train from the Maluri MRT station, but this would have involved changing lines midway through our ride.
We then walked a little further and caught the train from the Maluri LRT station that would take us all the way back to the Bandaraya LRT station again. Fifteen minutes later and for a fare of only RM2.20 each (approximately USD/EUR0.40) we were back where we started from.
A short walk later we arrived at our condo, a little tired but elated that we had spent a productive afternoon.
Catch you in our next post!
