In KLSo I'm in KL at the moment, killing time in a cybercafe (RM3 for half an hour??) waiting for my 10 p.m. bus trip to Taiping - eeks! We won't arrive there until past 2 a.m. Trying not to stress out too much especially when I think about the 11 a.m. meeting the next day.
The only good thing about KL is that it makes me appreciate Kuching so much more. The heat, humidity, pollution and crowds are disgusting. At first, I was pretty excited about the shopping but it's only fun when you're with a bunch of girlfriends. Being with a guy is a whole different experience, I tell ya. It's been fun but just different. At least I managed to hit some bookstores along the way. Being in Kinokuniya bookstore was a respite from the craziness that is KL. I didn't buy anything there though - I couldn't find the Haruki Murakami book that I was looking for. Ended up buying "Stiff" by Mary Roach, which is about the uses of human corpses, etc.. at Times bookstore in KLCC. I've been looking for this book for a year now and it's great to finally pick it up.
We've been walking around KL the whole day - Puduraya to BB area to KLCC... it's actually all pretty close but when you've got a backpack on your back, and the heat and pollution are all around you, it gets tiring.
Stopped at Starbucks to try their new strawberry cream iced frappucino - yuummmm!!!!! But at RM14.50 for a venti (or grande - their equivalent to a medium, i forget), it's so steep! So we just ended up sharing one, being the cheap backpackers we are.
We also had some sushi at Sushi King because I miss sushi so much but it wasn't all that great.
And oh! There was this really adorable baby tee by Jill Stuart at FOS - it's black and has the following words in sparkly pink: "I was going to rule the world but got distracted by something sparkly" - so cute! It was about RM30 though - should I get it? Like I need more t-shirts! It enhances my boobs as well - I'm trying to decide whether it's a good thing.
So the boy is next to me, playing some computer game (boys!). Am trying to discreetly update my blog because he doesn't know anything about this and am planning to keep it this way.
Why isn't anyone on MSN messenger right now???
