I puffed out a sigh of relief as we walked out of LCCT’s maze-like halls and found our favorite spot, a gutter somewhere right in the middle of the terminal’s parking lot, holding some cups of coffee. It was a familiar territory.
Me and my buddy have been to Kuala Lumpur many times for flight layovers and we kinda knew the city by heart now. It’s like going back to your native land after some years of separation. We roughly have 30 hours to spend here and we didn’t plan for anything for this certain stopover.
We haven’t had a decent sleep for almost 24 hours now but at that point we weren’t longing for a comfy bed but a nice and a freshly made Mee Goreng. We hopped on a bus that’ll bring us to downtown KL and from there we scurried along familiar alleys to get into our home for two days.
Our hotel this time is located along Jalan Masjid India, the Starpoints Hotel. We’ve been here before and it’s quite a familiar place; the bazaar shops, hawker stalls, legit gold shops and our favorite liquor store that offers cheap local beers.
There’s no time to waste, we immediately stowed our stuff in our room and scanned the hawker stalls around the area for a quick bite.

The Nasi Ayam was just ok and the Mee Goreng wasn’t that good compared to the ones we had at Bukit Bintang but the Kopi Ice was very refreshing.
We had a regular size of their famous Clay Pot Chicken Rice for sharing (RM 10). It’s great. The tasty marinade of the chicken and other spices are incorporated into the fried rice which makes it more scrumptious. The clay pot technique was also phenomenal. It kept the dish very warm for that fresh and yummy bite every time. We wanted to have more but we were saving some space for other food stuff around the area.

We really love KL and the surprises unfolding every time we’re there. Although we haven’t explored much of the city (guilty of using KL as our hub for other flights around Asia), we love it as much as we love Mee Goreng. And with that, we’re ready for the next destination… Nepal!
