A Monorail Trip

After attending the Bacathon event at Raimie's school, we decided to hop on the KL Monorail and went to Berjaya Times Square, located in Bukit Bintang. The reason was, Zaini wanted to buy a charger and download some games to Raimie's Japan bought Nintendo DSi. His go to guy used to be based at S&M but moved to Berjaya Times Square. Being a loyal customer that he is, Zaini still goes to him even though Berjaya Times Square is rather incovenient for him to go to.

To tell you the truth, I can count how many times I ride the monorail with one hand. It's not that it's not good, but the first station is at KL Sentral and coming from MidValley, it is much easier to take the RapidKL buses instead. A painless ride, albeit in a full train. Though at certain bends, it felt like riding in a rickety funfair type train. LOL One plus that I liked about the monorail is that it is not as noisy as the LRT.

At Bukit Bintang station:A full train, even at the first station which is the KL Sentral station. One way fare to Berjaya Time Square which is the Imbi Station is RM1.60. To Bukit Bintang Station RM2.10. Certain station looks better than others. KL Sentral station, due to the huge crowd there looked quite run-down but Tun Sambanthan station looks pretty new.

Although the journey was smooth, I hope that KL Monorail would make sure more turnstiles are operating at KL Sentral Station. With just one turnstile to use, lines to enter the station got long pretty quick and created a bottleneck there.

Apart from going to Berjaya Times Square, we went to Low Yat Plaza. Low Yat Plaza is the place to go for everything IT related. We were pondering over whether to get a portable external drive but with so many choices we ended up not buying anything.

  1. I was in Kuala Lumpur last July. Had I known my Malaysian blogger friends then, I would have gotten in touch with you guys, so I can inquire about places to visit. We never got to try the LRT, but we got to explore part of Petronas. I think "Life Ramblings" and Tekkaus are in Malaysia too right. :)

  5. @Ayie,
    Hahaha... I took a few seconds holding my camera to get a steady shot in the train in full view of the rest of passengers. But they must have thought I was a tourist. LOL
