Sepang Stroll (gateway@klia2 │ Mitsui Outlet Park │ Carol Beads Project)

Another impromptu drive!

As mentioned in our previous video my day job consumed all of my time, with all hands needed on deck to overcome a large obstacle. Apart from that the project that had demanded so much of my time and energy was reaching a very important milestone.

At the same time however my lower back began to show signs of giving in to the demands of my day job. Dr Chin at Nova Chiropractor did all he could to tend to the aching bones and joints. This meant that we would not be going on any walkabouts any time soon. Bummer!

While the large obstacle at my office remained a menace I was glad that the project was finally approved by our board of directors, which meant that we could proceed with the next phase. Ecstatic by the good news we thought we’d celebrate by taking a drive to Sepang.

We planned to visit the “Warnai Raya KLIA2” event that included several booths from Sarawak. One booth in particular was selling traditional beaded bracelets and other adornments much like what Ashley had gifted us during our last trip to Kuching. 

Since we were early we decided to have breakfast at Bungkus Kaw-Kaw. We both ordered the Nasi Lemak and with a round of drinks our typical breakfast came to RM25.10 (approximately USD6/EUR5). After breakfast we walked into the Skechers store in search of a reasonable priced pair of work shoes but none were on offer.

We then went in search of the booth selling the beaded bracelets, and after a little while found it. Alas the booth was not yet open, so we headed out to Mitsui Outlet Park to continue our search for a pair of reasonably priced brown work shoes.

At the same I had a birthday voucher to redeem from Puma, but as soon as we arrived at Mitsui Outlet Park we discovered that the voucher had already expired by one day! We then looked for the Skechers store here, while there were plenty of shoes were being offered at a discount no brown work shoes were available. 

After this double whammy we made our way back to KLIA2 and as they say, third time's the charm. The booth we hoped to visit was finally open. Be sure to watch our previous video for a twist in the tale. We then headed home. 

We are planning for another road trip in a few weeks’ time. Catch you all soon!

CAROL Beads Project

We went beady-eyed!

We eventually visited the “Warnai Raya KLIA2” and paid much attention to one booth in particular, traditional beaded bracelets and other adornments much like what Ashley had gifted us during our last trip to Kuching.

It was indeed a small world when we discovered that the artist Carol Ruran-Joseph was in fact Ashley's Aunt, her mother's cousin to be exact! We spent quite some time at her stall before eventually spending RM430.00 (approximately USD98/EUR88) on an assortment of items which we suspected was heavily discounted. 

My necklace was a little short that it looked more like a choker (not my kind of thing!) so she asked us to come back a little later while she extended the necklace. With nothing to do we decided to have drinks at the restaurant across her stall and in no time at all my necklace was ready. I added a Lava Stone bracelet that I could wear to work for RM45.00 (approximately USD10/EUR9).

You can find her at https://www.instagram.com/carolbeadsproject/ and we absolutely love her caption that says "The Gift of my hands is for the glorification of my King".

Her involvement with the Warnai Raya event at KLIA2's Gateway will end this Wednesday the 19th of April 2023, so please hit her up on her Instagram page to browse the various works of art that she produces.
