SATURDAY Runaround: Plaza LOW YAT • PUDU Plaza • MATIC

Saturday Stroll!

Two days since our dragon chasing exploits and we were itching to resume testing the DJI Action 4.

We left our condo at a quarter to eleven in the morning and made our way as we usually do to the bus stop in front of Sarah Hughes along Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman.

A short while later we caught the free GOKL Red Line bus to KL Sentral. We disembarked and walked to the Muzium Negara MRT station deep in the belly of KL Sentral.

We caught a train eight minutes later for a fare of RM1.60 (approximately USD/EUR0.30) and got off at the Bukit Bintang station where we then exited Gate C onto Jalan Bulan. A short walk later we arrived at Plaza Low Yat and headed up to the 2nd floor.

We were running out of storage space so we invested in a 5-terrabyte Western Digital My Passport External Hard Disk from Sri Computers for RM609.00 (approximately USD129/EUR119).

We then headed back down to the ground floor and hailed a Grab car for a fare of RM8.00 (approximately USD/EUR2) to Pudu Plaza. Here we walked into our second favourite camera store, YL Camera Services to enquire about tripods.

In the end we invested in a Benro Tripod with Video Head for RM400.00 (approximately USD85/EUR78) and a Benro Mini Tripod for RM100.00 (approximately USD21/EUR20). These tripods were necessary for a special assignment at work next month.

We then exited Pudu Plaza and walked across Jalan Landak onto Jalan Kancil headed southwest until we reached Jalan Pudu.

At the first opportunity we walked across and past the terribly busy Sek Yuen Chinese restaurant onto Jalan Sarawak until we reached the Pudu LRT station.

We caught a train for a fare of RM1.40 (approximately USD/EUR0.30) to the Masjid Jamek station where we disembarked and walked across Jalan Tun Perak onto Jalan Lebuh Ampang.

We enjoyed our sumptuous lunch at Restoran Kader immensely so be sure to catch our upcoming videos!

We left Kader at two in the afternoon and caught a Rapid KL bus #300 for a fare of RM1.00 (approximately USD/EUR0.20) to Jalan Ampang. We got off at the Renaissance Hotel bus stop and walked across headed to the Malaysian Tourism Information Centre, better known as MATIC.

The Borneo Songket Heritage Festival 2024 was being held here. We browsed the various stalls and ended up with a very handsome bounty for Cat so be sure to catch our upcoming videos!

We then walked out of MATIC hoping to catch a bus along Jalan Ampang but found barriers in front of the bus stop. We then decided to walk to the bus stop at KLCC. After a while we realised that Rapid KL buses were avoiding the bus lane, so we followed the crowd and caught a #302 bus on the main thoroughfare instead.

It began to pour soon as we got on the bus. We then discovered the bus we caught did not continue along Jalan Ampang but instead turned right onto Jalan Yap Kwan Seng. It eventually dropped us off at the Titiwangsa bus hub again for a fare of RM1.00 (approximately USD/EUR0.20)

We came full circle and caught the free GOKL Red Line bus that brought us back to the Sarah Hughes bus stop along Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman.

It was then a short walk back to our condo, but not before visitng the Saturday night market here to grab a bite to eat.

Hopefully in our next video we will be able to wake up early enough to enjoy a quiet morning of car-free Sunday!
