Independence Square (Dataran Merdeka) @ Kuala Lumpur

I am on my way from Central Market to the Independence Square in Kuala Lumpur. The yearly independence day parade will be held here. When you out from Central Market (behind), you should be able to see Loke Yew building first. Then you will see Wisma Straits Trading. Then you will be able to see a tall flag pole. There is a historical Sultan Abdul Samad buidling. It was build during the 1800s.

Holiday Villa hotel, Subang Jaya

I stayed here during my company system migration. Due to the non availability or another hotel near by my company, we choose this hotel. In term of room size, the room is quite big. This hotel has an old interior and my only complain here was its shower. The water is so slow and without any force. At that night, I am quite rush to sleep and have to wait for slow dripping water for shower. Moreover, the TV sets don't work and the air-condition is quite old and noisy. I would rate this hotel as a moderate hotel.

Exotic food @ Pudu, Kuala Lumpur

This road side stall is always packed and full of customers who are looking for exotic food and cheap food. Besides exotic food, they also have variety herbal soup in coconut shell and normal food. If you can't take exotic food, you may also try their chicken herbal soup which is quite tasty and the amount of Chinese herbs that they put in each coconut shell or bowl is amazing. I always like their wild boar curry and their braised mutton which hard to get elsewhere.

Taste:9/10(Delicious. The wild boar curry meat is tender and taste good. The curry is just perfect and its good on both rice or with bread. Other exotic food such as lizard meat and their steamed herbal soup is also good).
Price:8/10(Cheap. Each bowl of their exotic food is priced at MYR6 which is very reasonable. Herbal soup at MYR5 which is very worth it considering the amount of chicken and herbs in each bowl).


Wild boar curry. Good and recommended.

Black chicken herbal soup.

Braised lizard. Not bad but many small bones.

A complete dinner.
