Took one of those premier coach service from Golden Mile Complex. Not bad, got personal mini-tv, massage chair, plenty of leg room and a onboard attendant who talked like she was an air-stewardess. Too bad, the ear phone was not clean or changed (God know how many eyes it has been plugged into!). The drivers are now Cruise Captain (stylo right?). The rest stop at Yong Peng still looks the same from the outside but the toilet….. I swear can sit on the floor. Now got proper flushing toilet, nice clean tiles, bright light and a full time cleaner. Changi Airport – you got competition here!
As usual, we stayed in the
area. The Ancasa hotel was part of the package we bought. But it was good –
actually more than good because like the rest of the world, Malaysia has caught the football fever and the
hotel was a big supporter of Brazil
judging by the
banners, posters and even t-shirts worn by the staff. And to cap it off, when Brazil Brazil was playing , there was free flow of
food and drinks. Too bad, the action on the field wasn’t that great. Portugal
On the first day, we made our way to Stadium Titiwangsa to collect the race pack. Why must they have such tongue twister name? The organizer had thoughtfully provided free shuttle services to and from the LRT at Titiwangsa. The collection was a cliché and we were in and out within 5 minutes. The stalls at the expo were a disappointment though. And things were not cheap. So we made our way back to Titt before catching another train to Mid-Valley Mega Mall, apparently the most popular mall in KL which looks much like any other mall back here except that it is much much much bigger!
