Tale of the Two Tall Towers.

Saturday, June 05, 2004

It's been a while since I've been to KLCC, which used to be one of my more favourite places to hang out. The last time I was there was met with a very embarassing situation between me, my dad, my ex and his friend. Nevermind, a story for another day.

I used to love taking the LRT there: being able to stare out the window and watch KL pass by; the different sorts of people who get on and off at each stop; conversations that take place between me and whoever's taking the LRT with me (today it was Lyn!). I love it all.

And when I was there, I would spend hours at Kinokuniya, looking up books and playing with the Search machine they have. You can find ALL the books you want there. Anything that MPH does not have, you can bet Kinokuniya will have it in stock. I remember last year I was looking high and low for Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray, until I finally got a paperback copy there. At only RM20!

Having coffee next to the park, which I always thought was so pretty when it wasn't too hot out. Everything's so picturesque and you actually feel .. sort of different being there. More enlightened- like being able to see the big picture. Perhaps this is due to the fact that you have the world's tallest (still?) towers above you.

Not to mention, KLCC definitely has the hottest guys around. No question. Just ask Meesh. By the way woman, I saw him today, looking hawt in his uniform.

Yes, I have some sort of a love affair with KLCC. Don't tell me I'm the only one!

So after a few months of being away from the place, I was there again today with some friends. We initally planned to catch Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban, but hah! We never stood a chance. I thought the cinema crowd at Midavalley was bad, but KLCC's line extended all the way to the MUFC store! Sigh, I should have listened to my friend when he said there was no way we could get tickets without booking or buying them earlier. But I was so naive, so full of gullible hope... :(

So abandoning all plans of watching a movie, we walked around, mainly helping my friend's cousin from the UK shop for some stuff he wanted. We were three 18-year olds in search for Chinese teapots, go figure. It was fun though for me because hey, how often do I go shopping for teapots?

OH, we also got to try some of the packed-with-chocolatey-goodness drinks at Chocz that everyone's been raving about. I ordered the Aztec, which had a sprinkle of chilli powder, just like in the movie Chocolat. Frankly, I'm a little disappointed. The drink was delicious but I didn't get the side effects I expected to receive. I was neither sleepy, lethargic or horny, harumph. Have too much chocolate consumption in the past dimmed my senses? (Oh come on, don't look at it me like that, I'm only a girl.)

Tomorrow I'm heading to Genting after a decade plus of not being up there. I used to look at my friends like they were crazy when they would suggest late night coffee sessions up there, like, HEY- ISN'T GENTING TOO FAR AWAY? But I just found out that we have better roads now and it only takes 45 minutes to an hour to get up there.

Since I can't get into the casinos, most of the time will be spent eating, talking, getting heart attacks after the rides, having coffee, enjoying the weather and taking pictures. Lots of it. And I get to ride the cable cars tomorrow! Which I've never done before! Yippee-yi-kai-ay.

Have a good week everyone. I so, so hope I have a good one myself. I could really use the change of environment, even if its only for 3 days.

    Definitely thumbs up for Kino. Coming from Kuching, there were hot guys everywhere in KL for me, not just in KLCC.. ;-)

    KLCC is a good place to scout, yeah :)
    and just so you know, a lot of classics like oscar wilde's can be bought for 6.90 - 7.90, depending on what brand you get....Try the pink cover ones, I think it's Penguin

    the penguin classics are cheap and er. they're classic ;D and i like hanging out at klcc alot too. after my breakup i still frequented that area often. used to go to kino, buy a book, have a coffee downstairs, take a walk in the park, sit on the parkbench and watch ppl jog or read my book, watch the sunset, then head back home on the lrt. i like watching ppl on the lrt too. its a good time for contemplative thinking as well :)

    I like the park, and watching the sunlight gleam off the two towers from the park :)

    How come I never see hot guys in KLCC. . .Oh wait, I have :D But I think twice only :*(

  1. Blogger sarah said:

    Cayce: LOL, is Kuching devoid of hawties? Say it isn't so!

    Lainie: AIyo only 7-8 dollars? thats cheap. gonna get "importance of being earnest" from penguin next then.

    Grace: reading a book in the park while the sun sets. sounds ideal. will put that on my to-do list ;)

    Appegal: Never seen hot guys? Omigosh, buka mata besar besar next time :D And yeah, i always thought the Petronas twin towers looked lovely, night or day.

    KLCC bores me now. I go there far too often, heheh (most of my time there is spent at Kino, of course). But I am happy that they opened the gelato place there! AND Marc Jacobs is there, too.

    Nadiah: haha, so maybe its cool that i don't go there every week.

    Hi Sarah thanks for dropping by at my site. I havent been to Kinokuniya at KLCC because frankly, I want to devote two whole days to the place once I have the time. It's just not fair to myself to go there, spend an hour or six over there and then get dragged to the next boutique. No...I shall save myself for that special moment!

    Hi there sarah... from erm, another Sara :) My first time here and I intend to return!

    As for shopping malls, I've always been more of a Midvalley than KLCC sorta gal... but I've gotta agree - the beautiful scenery (the park, the towers and guys :P) definitely makes drinking coffee a more pleasurable experience than in Megamall. All you see are cars zooming by in Midvalley (although thank goodness, some of the guys around aren't bad looking either ;) )

  1. Blogger sarah said:

    Pleaseflushafteruse: 2 days! My goodness! Good luck wit that!

    Sara: Midvalley's nice to shop- more afforadable. Looking at the Armani, Prada, etc stores in KLCC intimidates me! :p

    i went to klcc like two days ago.. and that was the first time i've even been into their cinemas... and.. the way out was rather long... it's stupid...

  1. Blogger sarah said:

    Ben: the fact that you actually got into the cinema itself is alraedy soo amazing.
