we then rested till 12 and moved to our new hotel at 5 elements, which is just a less than 10mins walk away, near chinatown. place is definitely not as nice or clean.
headed out and walked to masjid jamek, which is just 1 stop away. no trains this time, i just get lost easily even if it's mrt. =_= so we reached the place which is significant for malaysia's independence, but this clock tower is all there is to see there.
walked a little ahead and you can see the very pretty mosque (not allowed to enter unless you're covered head to toes.... for ladies)
and if you walk past the mosque you're headed for the city gallery + national library upon crossing the road.
to the left is the city gallery we were looking for
and we're here!
i think this place is an absolute must-visit for anyone going to KL. the entrance fee is RM5 but it is usable as cash voucher within the museum! so this is the structure we're at.
there's a mish-mash of artwork past this area.
guess who's on the artwork here too
the main point of the gallery here is actually the lighting display... whhhhoooo
it introduces the state of KL as it is now
and talks of the future plans in the next 5 years
and then lights up all the little buildings there. i believe the lights were all shone on from above and not within the structure itself.
and that's it~
we made our exit to the souvenier shops where there were people working live to build these things (photos not allowed btw but i took it too fast oops!)
and the coffee shops sells awesome kaya toast and eggs for RM10 (just exactly our entrance ticket price)
stopped at the library next for a quick look.not a lot of books there actually but there's a little area that tells of KL's history and there's A LOT of sofa for people to laze around and sleep.
opposite the library and across the roads lie a textile museum..
i think my dear spam all these photos for his own usage but i'll just post them anyway!
it's a pretty tiny area with souvenir shop, despite how big the building looks. so we finished it in less than 10mins, then went outside the museum and to its right (back to where we were before crossing the road over to city gallery).
back to the area with the clock tower is a relatively clean street that looks like chinatown (or a cleaner version of it, except it sells malay food and stuff),, called kasturi walk.
not much to do and we eventually ended up back at berjaya times square for dinner and movie.
btw there's a really fantastic tw bubble tea in this area and we drank it for 3 days in a row.
we tried their green tea which had white pearls at the top and milk pudding at the bottom. it was pure heaven. we tried their milk tea too.. yumm! the green tea is still the best!
had dinner at kenny rogers but realised that king's men wasn't showing that day. caught some wifi at starbucks with a bit of thieving skills to check for other slots but we weren't in luck. here's the code if you need it!
