Yesterday morning we caught the monorail to KL Sentral, then waited rather longer than the sign suggested for the next train to Mid Valley Megamall. Mmm, rubber time. This was mostly to visit a larger Toys R Us for more train stuff, plus a RC car for Plane Boy, plus one for Josh...
Enjoyed Pepper Lunch for, well, lunch - same chain store as in Japan, rice and meat on sizzle plates. Yummo!
After that it was time for a siesta before sunset drinks at the Traders Hotel. Wary of the evening rush hour, we took a taxi quite early. Not necessary as it turned out, we were there in about 4min. Still, we had plenty of time for a really nice leisurely walk around some of the KLCC Park next to the hotel. Much more comfortable than the midday visit after the aquarium.
Kudos to Plane Boy for prebooking this event from home - perhaps the highlight of the holiday so far. A very trendy bar 33 floors up, facing the Petronas* Towers right across the plaza below. Entire bar is bisected by a long straight lap pool for the hotel guests, with conversation pit style booths lined with big cuddly cushions on our side and bar tables on the far side. Very pleasant to gaze out over KLCC on one side, or follow the swimmers on the other.
Even better, selected cocktails were 2 for RM48 (about A$16) until 8.30pm. 8-D Nerdia worked her way through the list (hey, that's only 6 drinks) while Plane Boy stuck to the Tiger beer (also 2 for 1), plus a very nice sour green apple liqueur.
The view of the Towers was fantastic, and we took lots of video plus some good-looking photos, including a few panorama shots. Called it a day just before happy 'hour' ended (natch) - and Nerdia is none the worse for wear today, thank you all very much.
