Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia): Petaling Jaya, Bangsar

Posted in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Travel by happyhighfashion on December 20, 2009

Day 2:

The bf’s big aunt’s family drove us to a nearby food market (unfortunately I do not know the exact location) for breakfast. It was a heartwarming pig out session with his family, his aunt, uncle, older cousins, nephew and niece. The food they ordered for us were so good, from sliced Chicken noodles, to Penang Char Kway Tiao to Malaysian Kolo Mee!

The day was very rushed as we squeezed several places in the afternoon before we had dinner with the bf’s big aunt’s family.  We walked around for about 2 hours at 1 Utama Shopping Centre in Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya which was of course not enough as it consists of two wings connected directly to each other over a wide road.  I spent a tiny bomb at The Face Shop as the nail polishes were on sale and so much cheaper than Singapore.  Bought almost 30 bottles as Christmas gifts for my colleagues and myself!

Thereafter, we did a quick exploration in Mid Valley Megamall for another 2 hours and shopped at the F.O.S. before we cabbed down to Bangsar area.

Hello BANGSAR!!  The place to be if you like to people watch, you can spot expats and the chic young Malaysians in this area.  Somewhat similar to Singapore’s Holland Village with a mix of restaurants, pubs, bars, grills, bistros, cafes, fast-food joints.  I read so much about the quaint shops in this area so this was a MUST-GO place on the to-do list.  The boutiques were such an eye-pleaser and the prices for the trendy fashion was awesome thanks to the Malaysian Mega Sale that was on-going around Malaysia.

Along the Jalan Telawi Streets, there are numerous quaint boutiques such as Mooie, Blueberry, Shoes, Shoes, Shoes and Little Black Book on the ground floor as well as on the 2nd levels of the shophouses.

We were thrilled to “chance” upon a Pasar Malam in the area!  The food was decadent! We didn’t manage to try FatMan Steamboat (till next time) but we gobbled down the freshly fried Ham Ji Pang, Butterfly and savoury Asam Laksa.

It was starting to drizzle and the sky was turning dark so we headed to Bangsar Village and shopped around the quiet mall that had Zara, pretty cafes and gorgeous Christmas decor.
