Going to West Malaysia - Day 1 (13th Apr 2012)

Since last year Connie and I had already bought the cheapest air ticket flying from Brunei to West Malaysia - Kuala Lumpur and we had been started to plan where to go in Malaysia. Then we decided to go to Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Cameron Highland. Two weeks before we fly,  we tried to contact all our net friends in Malaysia and hope that we can meet up and had some small gathering.

So that day we reached the Brunei International airport very early and we manage to have a look around the departure hall. I was very surprise because it had change a lot compare to my last visit, about 20 yrs ago? ( Before that I usually flew from Miri, Sarawak ) . It is very big inside and there is some cafe and souvenir shop too. Best of all there is a tourist centre.

But now to think of it, since this is located inside the departure hall and the tourists are prepare to fly, so what info will they want to get at this centre? Hm... I wonder....

Then I saw this air plane - Royal Brunei Airline...

Ahhhhhh... It has been a long time I didn't sit on that plane ever since there is Air asia....  I really miss the comfy seat.

So after a two hours flight, we reached LCC Terminal at around 11.30am, take our bus to KL Centre and meet two frens there. This is my first time meeting Jelly, she is my chatters for almost a year from a social website and FB. Jelly is a very friendly and chatty kind of girl. She and another friend - John who is an old friend of mine accompany us to our hotel using LRT ( KL Monorail) This was my second time taking KL's monorail and I really don't feel comfortable at all because it was very shaky -_-"

So we reach the hotel and met another three friends, Caith, Fenny and Andrew by which these three people  Connie and I never met in real before. We only chat in FB for about less than one year  and and it is amazing that they agree to meet us.

Fenny brought us to Levain Boulangerine and Patisserie for high tea.

Too bad after the long trip I felt very tired to tried anything. So Fenny and Caith just order some dessert for us to try. 

Then Fenny recommend that we should try the Creamy Mushroom soup.

And yes, I had to agree with her that so far this is the creamiest and the most tasty cream of mushroom soup that I had ever taste. 

The other friends also tried these food:

From Left to right : John, Andrew, Caith, Venie (me) Connie, Fenny and Jelly. 

This is my first time meeting Andrew, Caith, Fenny and Jelly. It was surprisingly that day we had so much to talk about and hence this shows a best friend is someone who can be your sister or brother, even from 1445 kilo meters. Ya, maybe being far away does make it difficult to communicate sometime, but when we are together, it just makes every moment special. 

Then later we go to Time Square and do some shopping. I was disappointed with the changes of Time Square compare to the last time I went there. It was so messy and so many shops which repeated selling the same thing. But then I still have some fun shopping around. 

And the poster I like best : Wonder MOM ~ !

And Best of all, taking all these pictures for FREE! lol!

Then later we have dinner at Jalan Alor

I saw one of my friend order this - Hot and Spicy Pan Mee,

So I asked my friend : " Nice or not? " The boss quickly replied me : " If Not nice then you no need to pay." Lol! Of cos it is Delicious!!!!! 

 After dinner we go for some drink session with VJ, another old friend of mine,  and then Connie and I return to the hotel at around 5am -___-"  

To be continue...
