Holiday in Kuala Lumpur day 1

Despite living so close to Malaysia, this would be my first time in Kuala Lumpur in about 10 years. The excuse this time was to visit a friend who had returned home from the U.S. for a holiday.

We arrived at our hotel, Impiana KLCC Hotel & Spa, on Thursday at about 4pm. After checking in, we then took a stroll across KLCC park to Suria KLCC, the shopping mall under the Petronas Towers. We didn't expect the walk to be so short, so we two non-shopaholics ended up with abour two hours to wander around the five-storey mall, ending with a cup of overpriced tea.

We met my friend, Terina, and her parents outside Burger King, then made our way up to a Chinese restaurant. It was my first time meeting her dad and third time meeting her mum. Dinner consisted of sweet-and-sour spicy soup, roast duck, bittergourd, prawns in thick cream, and dessert.

Over dinner, I caught up with Terina on her life. All of us also talked about our countries, weather, things to do in KL, etc. It also took me about half an hour to figure out how to send an SMS to her through mobile roaming.

We finished dinner at about 9pm. After arranging with Terina for the next day's activities, we went our separate ways.
