We commemorate the establishment of the Malaysian federation on this day in 1963. This event saw Malaya, North Borneo, Sarawak, and Singapore unite into a single state. As such today was a public holiday.
Truth be told we slept in and only got out and about close to noon. We first thought about having lunch at Capital Cafe but the large crowd that had formed dissuaded us. We continued along Jalan TAR and decided to make it across the Sogo-Pertama Crossroad and pondered our next destination.
We caught a Rapid KL bus #170 at the Menara MARA Bus Stop and eventually got off at the Pasar Seni Bus Hub for a fare of only RM. We then walked over to the Pasar Seni LRT Station to reload our Touch 'n Go cards but could not figure out how the kiosk there worked.
We then walked across to the Pasar Seni MRT Station where we found another kiosk and managed to reload our Touch 'n Go cards. For those of you interested in riding the Rapid KL buses around Kuala Lumpur please be sure to buy a Touch 'n Go card from any LRT, MRT or Monorail station since these buses do not accept cash nor have any pay wave devices.
We then walked east along Jalan Sultan and turned left onto Jalan Tun H S Lee past the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple. We had a sumptuous lunch at Sin Kiew Yee comprising of Sweet & Sour and Ginger with Spring Onions fried dishes with white rice and a round of Chinese Tea for RM28.00 (approximately USD/EUR6).
Lunch out of the way we then began an impromptu walkabout that took us along Jalan Hang Lekir then onto Jalan Hang Kasturi. We walked across Jalan Tun Sambanthan and entered Central Market where a long procession of temporary stalls was erected selling of kinds of knick-knacks.
We walked the entire length of Central Market and exited its northern facing doors before walking onto Jalan Hang Kasturi again. We then walked across Lebuh Pasar Besar headed north onto Medan Pasar and past its Old Clock Tower. We continued northeast onto Lebuh Ampang and turned right onto Jalan Tun Perak.
Here we stopped by Rush Roastery for some beverages at cost us RM33.00 (approximately USD/EUR7) which ironically was more than what we paid for lunch. Oh well, it is what it is.
We then across Jalan Tun Perak onto Lebuh Ampang and darted into a small alley before emerging onto Jalan Melaka. We then walked northeast onto Jalan Ampang before merging onto Jalan Munshi Abdullah.
We were on the home straight! We walked across the Jambatan Jalan Munshi Abdullah and past Jakel Mall until we reached City One Plaza and eventually got home.
We will be on another walkabout this Sunday morning as we attempt to acquire a second pre-loved DJI Pocket 2 from a seller we found on Carousell, so please stay tuned!
