TANAH RATA to KL: Going Home!

Going home!

We woke up at a quarter to eight and made our way down to the laundromat at half past eight. We deposited our clothes in the washer and walked across the street to Yong Teng Cafe for breakfast. After the luxurious meals of the past few days we were glad to have a down-to-earth meal for a change.

Yong Teng Cafe is run by an elderly couple who are both hearing and speech impaired. We ordered:

  • 2 Nasi Lemak with Fried Egg
  • Toast Bread with Kaya Butter
  • 1 Hot Coffee with Milk
  • 1 Hot Tea with Milk 
  • 1 Hot Lemon Tea

that came to a reasonable RM22.00 (approximately USD/EUR). While having breakfast we found the time to dash to the laundromat to move our clothes from the washer to a dryer, so by the time we were done with breakfast our clothes were all done as well.

We went up to the Airbnb to pack our newly washed clothes away, and at a quarter past ten we checked out of the Airbnb, deposited the key and card at the designated spot and slowly strolled to the Tanah Rata Bus Terminal. 

Since we rode the Unititi Express bus to get here we thought we would give their rival, CS Express a chance to send us back to Kuala Lumpur.

The CS Express bus bearing the registration number JRH9722 arrived at 10:55am, and at precisely 11:02am departed the Tanah Rata Bus Terminal. 

We noticed a marked difference in the levels of service between the two bus companies, and made a mental note to stick with Unititi from now onwards.

Twenty minutes later the bus arrived in Ringlet and made a lengthy stop to pick up a couple of passengers that started loading a boatload of stuff, as though they were moving house.

After another hour of twists and turns we eventually drove past the Tapah Toll Plaza at ten to one before making a pitstop at the Tapah R&R along the North South Expressway.

The bus resumed its drive at a quarter past one and approximately an hour and a half later drove past the Jalan Duta Toll Plaza.

We arrived at KL Sentral at 2:50pm, collected our bags and headed in for a late lunch.

We settled on Meals Station and promptly ordered:

  •  2 Nasi Lemak Ayam Pandan 
  •  Blackpepper Grilled Chicken Chop 
  •  French Fries
  •  2 Coca Colas
  •  a Fizzy Sour Plum

that came to RM65.10 (approximately USD14/EUR13). Lunch out of the way we then walked back to KL Sentral and out its main exit where we hailed a six-seater Grab car for a fare of RM22.00 (approximately USD5/EUR4) back to our condo.

Thus ended our Highlands adventurising for now. Until the next time!
