A little at a time…

After our breakfast on the 7th morning in KL, I decided to follow Melissa and her mum as they went browsing through the shops in the adjoining mall next door. It did not last very long though for while they were still in the first shop where they stopped to look at the clothes and stuff, I decided that I would make my way back to the hotel by myself. Hehehehehehe!!!!

On the way, I saw this place…

My friend had the coffee there and shared her photograph of it on Facebook and Annie-Q commented that I must drop by to try it…

So, was it any good? Well, at RM8.00  a glass, it just had to be good. Tsk! Tsk! Four glasses of that and we could buy a kilo of the best locally-roasted coffee in town which may be just as good or perhaps, even better…and drink ourselves to kingdom come!

I also ordered a slice of this – mango…

…to try as we do not have that flavour here and if I remember correctly, it is one of Annie-Q’s favourites. RM11.90!!! Just 10 sen more and we could have two slices of our just-as-nice ones here – vanilla. For one thing, I think I’ve had too much of those over these last couple of years so I’ve grown quite impartial to it – no longer something that I would die for, not anymore.

After that pit-stop on my way back to the hotel, I dropped by this stall…

…as I would like to buy some…

…and take them back to the hotel room to try…

I thought the lady was definitely no Miss Congeniality though I would not say she was ill-mannered or rude or anything of the sort. The impression that I got was she was very proud of what she makes and sells – like they were the best in the world. Unfortunately, I did not share those same sentiments, I’m afraid – the filling was so-so and there wasn’t any egg inside…

…but the pastry was crispy all right, though a tad too hard especially along the crust. I would think the ones I had in Sungai Petani were half the price at the time and heaps nicer…and at RM2.70 each, I definitely would think twice about having that again.

I also saw this on my way back to the hotel…

…at this place…

…and I wondered if they were anything like bagels…or perhaps, even Sibu kompia, so later that afternoon, I made my way back there to give it a try.

No, I did not go for those sweet stuff that seems to be the craze at places like this…

KK donuts

…and is very popular among the younger set. Ok…ok…I’m old, I know that and I’m not really into those things, I’m afraid.

The coffee was nothing like those that I had had at the other places…

…and no, it was nothing like bagel or kompia

KK - KC with TH

– it was more or less like bread and to be fair, it tasted all right though I felt it was a bit small and at RM10.50 for all that, you can jolly well guess whether I would or would not be having that again.

Next stop, dinner – and a great time with some blogger-friends who cared to drop by. Stay tuned!
