Of food, places and sketches

“Free and easy”…that’s what Mr. Kian told us about our schedules of activities. Knowing artists are not bound by time and space to do their creations, he told us to just relax and enjoy our exploration trip as we try to imbibe all that our senses can handle.

Our group has somehow visited Kuala Lumpur before, but it was good to explore the city, this time, leisurely. So I readily accepted a friend’s invitation for me to see her at KLCC, Suria. The place still looks familiar, but it still amazes me to see this Twin Tower looming before us. It still remains as one of the world’s architectural feats and surely one of Malaysia’s famous tourist attractions.

With Celso and Fe, we explored the Kinokuniya Bookstore inside the KLCC.

Today, we had a taste of Indian food in the morning, Chinese Malaysian food at lunch and Thai food for dinner.

And while we’re at it, the artists kept on with their sketching.

The kind bookstore attendant told me Kinokunia is a Japanese term meaning "Bookstore of Kii Province". The company has its headquarters in Meguro, Tokyo.
