Brief Stops

KL: Shoe-shopping topped the list of must-buy. Mission accomplished with 2 pairs of houndstooth fabric shoes, a pair of flats and a pair of open toed, kitten-heeled pumps.
Didn't have enough meal slots to eat all the yummy local food that I've been yearning for. Managed to have wanton mee for brekkie one morning at a kopitiam, the mamak mee at Cafe Societe that I always go for every single trip to KL, and a delicious big Sichuan dinner at Silkroad with the gang.

The 2 sessions of foot reflexology were relaxing and enjoyable. Watching a colleague squeal and flinch while attempting the new fad of having her feet and legs nibbled by "doctor fish" at the foot spa was hilarious. But she reported that her soles which were usually cracked, felt quite smooth after the fish finished their feasting.

Singapore: 1 full day in Singapore on transit from KL back to Sydney. Met up with S for lunch, had xiao long bao at my request. At least we didn't have to queue at the popular "Din Tai Fong" because we got there early. We managed to digest quickly enough for tea after making our rounds in the shops, and had 2 pots of interesting-sounding tea, which names I now forget, and shared a French chocolate cake with double cream on the side - yummy.

2 brief stops, quick catch ups, a prelude to the longer trip coming up in June.
