Having not been back for 2 years, I find myself rather touristy. and since Megumi came all the way to visit me here in Malaysia, my tourist mode boost to its max. and yeah, although I study in Korea, I seem to always mingle amongst Japanese people. well there are a few Americans, Canadians and.. Europeans too.

back to the topic. since Megumi came, I have been to many places I’ve never been nor was I interested in going. and surprisingly those pictures turned out pretty well. I guess it’s similar to how I’d always dissed my friends in Korea for not having been to Nami Island or Namdaemun when I’ve been there for over 10 times perhaps.

KLCC/Petronas Twin Towers (and this is the popular spot for tourists haha there were so many tour buses)

CIMG6989 copy

Pavilion. not exactly touristy but we took over 30 pictures at the same spot. hahahha.

CIMG7009 copy

forget about Midvalley, KLCC and 1Utama. Pavilion’s decoration beat them by far.

while it was packed here and there, Zhang Toi was quiet during CNY dinner and the food’s great.

CIMG7053 copy

especially their specialty, the chocolate banana cake. yum.

CIMG7057 copy

love curry? love tom yam? well, this is a combination of them two. only available at Taman Midah’s Dim Sum restaurant! and their noodles are home made without any preservatives!

CIMG7061 copy

the best. I repeat. the BEST CHENDOL! Penang Road famous teochew chendul =3. even Jimmy Choo’s been here. and a lot more. they had the picture with Jimmy Choo framed nicely with a wooden frame while the others were just laminated hahahahaha.

CIMG7128 copy

TADA! I like mine with less read bean.

CIMG7136 copy

and they now got a store. and they sell Asam Laksa there. I went there when they were about to close (which means we got the bottom soup. the best part) and it was literally the best Penang styled Asam Laksa I’ve ever had. ever. D=.

CIMG7139 copy

Megumi took an ant bite. and choked. she hate durian. just like every other Japanese I know who’ve tried durian.

CIMG7145 copy

fried oysters. expensive, delicious and addictive.

CIMG7148 copy

Penang’s Char Kuey Teow? heavenly. they have this too in Gangnam’s Kitchen Nyonya. but it isn’t even 1/10 as good D=. and it costs.. x20 the price. at least they have great rendang there.

CIMG7151 copy

Penang Har Mee’s awesome too. and cheap.

CIMG7234 copy

and took her to the beach. not as pretty as Redang, but still a beach =D.

CIMG7359 copy

I’m such a giant T_T. that’s why she’d always wear heels while I wear flats pfft.

CIMG7408 copy

took her to Genting as well and since the theme park is under construction, we headed for the arcade like a kid hahaha.

CIMG7436 copy

CNY must eat : Yee Sang. miraculously, she ate two plates. it isn’t exactly the most delicious dish but I told her eating a lot of this brings prosperity HEHEHEH.

chilling at my cousin’s restaurant’s private room haha. everyone, please visit CWZJ. a table above 1.5k allows you to book a really pretty room. =3. with your own private bathroom. =D!!!

Nyonya Asam Laksa at Jonker 88, Malacca. such a long wait but it was pretty worth it. hate all the taufupok and foochok though T_T.
