KL Fall 2012: Peter Curry Fish Head

We met up with PL from Royal Selangor who brought along another colleague from Selroy for lunch.


They brought us to Peter Curry Fish Head Restaurant in Setapak for lunch. This was a popular place for us while we were working in Royal Selangor. We often come to this restaurant for special occasions like birthdays and farewells.

We were lucky to grab the last available table, otherwise we will have to wait for the next sitting.

We had the Michael Jackson drink which is soy milk with cincau (grass jelly).


The signature dish, Fish Head Curry with also include prawns, tofu puff, lady fingers and eggplant. The curry was so good with steamed rice. (more…)

KL Fall 2012: Meet Fresh

After breakfast, we ventured out to explore the Berjaya Time Square neighbourhood. It was still early and most shops were not open yet. Although it’s still early in the day, it was already hot and humid.

We went back to the hotel to escape the heat while waiting for our lunch appointment with our ex-colleague. In the hotel lobby, we heard a bridal car came honking. We just stayed in the lobby to catch the excitement of the wedding.


Bad luck hit me as a nose pad of my glasses was broken. We had to go back out to Berjaya Time Square to look for an optical shop to fix my glasses.  The optical was so kind to fix it for me for free.

I recalled Ben had to replace his glasses nose pads few years back. He went back to his regular optical shop in Richmond to get them replaced and was charged CAD$10 for it. Since then, that optical shop lost Ben’s business.

We came across Meet Fresh in Berjaya Time Square near the optical shop. Since we already had a big breakfast, we decided to share a dessert.


After paying for our order, we were given the above gadget which will light up when our order is ready to be picked up.


We shared an icy herbal jelly for RM6.90 (CAD2.30). The chewy mochi added a different texture to the slippery jelly. Cream was served on the side for those who like to add creaminess to the dessert. (more…)

KL Fall 2012: Kepong Hawkers Center

We took a cab from the hotel concierge from the hotel to Sri Damansara. It was expensive at RM60 (CAD20). We reckoned it will be difficult to flag down a cab during the after office hour traffic.


My father, my younger brother and my nieces brought us to have dinner at Kepong Hawkers Center. Ben had a tri-color iced milk tea.


I had a claypot chicken and salted fish rice for RM6 (CAD2).


Ben had a Fried Koay Teow with cockles for RM6 (CAD2). (more…)

KL Fall 2012: Snacks

As we explored the neighbourhood, we stopped for a drink to quench our thirst in the 30 over degrees Celsius weather.


Soy milk with gula Melaka for RM1.30 (about CAD0.45). The gula Melaka gives it a very different taste than those soy milk we get in the supermarket in Vancouver.


We came across a fruit rojak street food cart and how can I pass this. (more…)

KL Fall 2012: Pudu Wet Market

After lunch, Ben and I explored the surrounding neighbourhood by foot.


Ben grew up in this neighbourhood, Pudu. He pointed out to me the building above which he stayed during his childhood. He recalled watching the incident of 1969 from his apartment window. Now this neighbourhood is dominated by printing companies.


I bought a piece of fried yam to snack while exploring the neighbourhood.  It was RM1 (CAD0.35). It is filled with “nian gao” (Chinese New Year Cake).


We then ventured to the Pudu Wet Market. There are a lot of vendors selling pet fish here. (more…)

Travel from KLIA to KL Sentral

Air Aisa landed at the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT).


As expected, the terminal does not provide aerobridges since it’s a low cost terminal.

Immigration clearance for foreigners was quick as most of passengers of our flight were locals.


We took the KLIA transit to go to the city center. The ticket was RM12.50 (about CAD4) per person. This included a bus ride from the LCCT to KLIA transit train station. (more…)
