Kuala Lumpur : Where The Heart Is

It has been few days after I got back from New Delhi. However, I have to postpone New Delhi post as I realy wanted to blog about this newly discovered place in the heart of Kuala Lumpur (KL). This has been drafted before I went to India.
~x~

The next day after I landed from Jakarta, I rushed to central KL for India Visa Office at Jalan Lebuh Pasar. It was quite a hassle as I totally forgot that they need us to present our passport to apply for visa, not like Australian visa where you only need to apply online and print it straight away. So I have to postpone until I got back from Jakarta.

It was one fine Monday morning, walking from Dayabumi building and I realised that I have not been in this area for quite sometime. This old area of KL has transformed into a better place, or should I say into a greener and cleaner place? Yes, thats the right word. Walking through the bridge of  Lebuh Pasar looking at the magnificent skycrapers as I was excited like a small kid. 





After completed my errands at the visa office, decided to explore a bit of the surrounding area. This old building captured my attention and realised its an old Chinese coffee shop or Malaysian are well known with kopitiam. As I entered the shop, everything went black & white with 1977 effects of Instagram. Lol. Ok, thats nonsense. But yes, I'm trying to get the feel here.

Its an old kopitiam called "Sin Seng Nam" with 1977 interior, vintage facades, rusty building fixtures and sturdy well preserved wood tables and chairs located on Lebuh Pasar, just next to the Indian Visa Centre. Grabbed my very own morning coffee, a toast and rojak ayam. These are classics!

The coffee was up to my expection, the toast reminds me of this one old coffee shop in Kuala Terengganu that my father used to bring me there during my childhood and rojak ayam was perfectly mixed with its granulated peanut gravy (kuah kacang) that tasted so good. This realy made my perfect morning.




Later, I continued my "quick travel" in the area which somehow I think I should explore more soon. Just realised that I've been appreciating places around the world but I forgot the beauty of my own country, Malaysia. There are more to see, there are more to treasure.


 

Now, fingers crossed for my visa to be ready before this Thursday flight. :D
