Kuala Lumpur city and many shopping malls are congested on the last shopping weekend before Chinese New Year (31 January 2014).

I dropped by Mid-Valley Mega Mall to pick up a new point-and-shoot camera. The shots in this post were taken with this tiny camera. It is fun to use the remaining power in the new battery and took a few snapshots.

The parking lot with few thousands parking bays were totally filled in 30 minutes. We decided to avoid the crowd and went to Petaling Street (also known as foreign workers street) to have lunch.

We went for lunch at Lot 10 Hutong cafeteria (十号胡同).

Looking at the amount of red colour decorations and the New Year songs in the background, we know that Chinese New Year is round the corner.

Thaipusam 2014 @ Batu Caves

Christmas just passed and we have celebrated New Year. Malaysia is ranked world #2 for having the most holidays. We have holiday to celebrate Prophet Muhammad’s Birthday on 14th and today we have Thaipusam (17th January).

I made a short visit to Batu Caves this morning, and see if the crowd has increased. Batu Caves is crowded as usual.
