Selamat Hari Raya! 5-Mall Hop: Splendour of Eid Fitr

Selamat Hari Raya!

I took leave today to undergo a scheduled medical check-up that was unfortunately cancelled. With nothing planned we decided to visit the same malls from before when we were chasing 'dragons' during Chinese New Year. This time we wanted to capture the Eid Fitr themed decorations at same malls that we hoped to visit today. And instead of dragons we were on the hunt for 'ketupat'!

We left our condo at half past ten and ran an errand downstairs at Plaza City One. We then walked a short distance to the bus stop along Jalan Munshi Abdullah where we caught a free GOKL Blue Line bus to the Titiwangsa bus hub. Here we walked across the awfully busy Jalan Tun Razak via a footbridge us to the Titiwangsa Monorail station. We tapped in and continued on before eventually arriving at the Titiwangsa MRT station.

We then caught a train for a fare of RM2.00 (approximately USD/EUR0.40) to the Tun Razak Exchange or TRX station where we disembarked to visit the first of five malls today. 

We captured the splendour of Eid Fitr here, then caught another train bound for Kwasa Damansara for a fare of RM1.20 (approximately USD/EUR0.30) to the Bukit Bintang MRT station. Alas we exited the wrong turnstile, so for a 'fare' of RM0.80 (approximately USD/EUR0.20) we could head in the opposite direction.

We then exited the station through Gate E and walked a short distance to Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. Here we captured footage of both the exterior and interior Chinese New Year themed decorations, and both from the surface level as well as from the sixth floor of the mall.

We then walked out and onto Jalan Bukit Bintang headed southwest. We ducked underground and briefly entered the MRT station here again before exiting at the other end for a 'fare' of RM0.80 (approximately USD/EUR0.20), emerging back on the surface level along Jalan Bukit Bintang

We then took an escalator up and past the Monorail station before we entered Sungei Wang Plaza. Working with limited space it was only natural that the Eid Fitr themed decorations here were underwhelming.

We then exited Sungai Wang Plaza and headed to Plaza Low Yat. Since it was lunchtime we decided to have a newly opened non-halal food court, Asia Food City on the lower ground floor. Our unplanned lunch came to RM49.50 (approximately USD/EUR10).

We then headed up to the first floor to run another errand before walking across Jalan Imbi via a footbridge and into Berjaya Times Square. We then shot some footage of the Eid Fitr themed decorations here and then walked out onto Jalan Imbi, headed to the final mall of the day.

We were headed to our new favourite mall, LaLaport Bukit Bintang City Centre (LaLaport BBCC). We spent some time here shooting footage of the Eid Fitr then had drinks at Starbucks for RM27.25 (approximately USD/EUR4) and gave our feet a rest before hailing a Grab car for a fare of RM13.00 (approximately USD/EUR3) back to our condo.

In our next video we will (hopefully) wake up to enjoy early enough to enjoy a quiet morning of car-free Sunday!
