During our three-day visit to Malaysia, we intentionally stayed in Bukit Bintang. It is home to shopping malls, hotels, specialty shops, cafes, pubs, hawker-style eateries, restaurants, and more. Although we spent most of the day time outside Kuala Lumpur (the preceding posts can tell you that), at night we devoured what Bukit Bintang has to offer.
(I liked the Malaysian dishes and one of the tastes that I wish to revive over and again are those with Malaysian sambal sauce, including KFC’s ayam goreng.)
(Bukit Bintang is also popular for spa and massages. This fact is too obvious to miss that I actually coined one area during our first day as “massage street”. But where is the best massage/spa heaven within this stretch? It is just opposite the hotel we have stayed in (uhm, I mean no harm to the hotel’s own massage services). Look for the foot signage – establishment’s name is Reborn. They have the cleanest fish spa in this area. We have tried it (there goes my feet being kissed by the fishes!) and the foot reflexology as well. Lucky me, their best reflexologist was assigned to me. If you will swing by, look for Yaw Shou pronounced as Yo-shu, a guy from Myanmar).
[In the same area you will find shopping malls such as Pavilion, Berjaya Times Square, Lot 10, Low Yat Plaza (one-stop center for gadgets, bought an extra battery for the point and shoot camera, which was used to take all the photos contained in this entry, from here at a very reasonable price), Sungei Wang Plaza and more.]
Just as any place transforms at night, I think that this talented artist is one of the armies holding Bukit Bintang as the entertainment district of Kuala Lumpur. He does sketches so well in a matter of minutes. During our entire visit, we noticed that most of his clients are Arabs and he seemed to be perpetually “fully booked”. He only comes to this corner at night.
