I think I may have been to Petaling Street when I was very very small, just only a little bit of memories but still can’t recall when was it then I’ve been there. So last Sunday, I drove to town with my housemate, Han Tek to check out a basketball match between Malaysia’s KL Dragons and Indonesia’s Satria Muda. The match was awesome and it’s at the MABA Stadium which is quite near to Petaling Street.
So after the match, we walked to Petaling Street from the stadium to eat my dinner. I am surprised by the heritage old looked shop houses and area. It makes me feel a bit like home because they are cool and Penang is a heritage city as you all know.
The Petaling Street is covered with a roof to prevent rain from coming in but unfortunately, walking there was not a pleasure because the walkway is so narrow. The place is famous for selling imitation stuff and most of the stalls are operated by foreign workers. Very weird of this. Being in a Chinatown but not much Chinese selling stuff at there nowadays.
Went to the famous Tai Lok Mee or they call it Hokkien Mee here for dinner.
After that went back home without using a GPS because GPS couldn’t work that time. Luckily, I found my way back to Federal Highway. Then I found out that Kuala Lumpur and Bandar Sunway is actually quite near, IMO. =D
Tips: You can take LRT to Pasar Seni station and walk there. It’s pretty near.
