Ben and I decided to visit Petaling Street for some sightseeing on this day. Petaling Street is Kuala Lumpur’s chinatown.

Petaling Street is infamous for pirated goods like watches, handbags, DVDs, etc. It is a very popular tourist attraction.

However, the scene of this used to be chinatown is changing. It is now populated with foreign workers.

We had some food sampling in Petaling Street. We snacked on some popiah; a wrap of paper-thin crepe filled with stir-fried grated vegetables like turnip, jicama, lettuce, carrot, tofu, etc. The above serving was RM4.00 (CAD1.35).

We also bought some goodies for snacking and bring home. The above is for snacking as we cant bring meat product home. It’s our favourite dried meat (bak kwa).
