Kuala Lumpur Day 5

Gosh dangit already on Day 5 of the Memorial Day getaway. Well, we trucked around center city Kuala Lumpur on our last day with Luis. We checked out Brickfields also known as Little India, China Town or known as peddlers ally, and the Central Market.

We ate the local eats, such as durian fruit (AKA hot trash) and ais kacang or known as ABC (acronym for Air Batu Campur, literally meaning “mixed ice”). The ABC reminded me of S.Korea’s potbingsoo but cracked out. There was so much on this thing my mouth was totally confused by all of the textures and flavors that were going on inside of it. I am talking about crazy flavors like palm seed, red beans, sweet corn, grass jelly and cubes of agar agar, aloe vera, cendol, ice cream. A final topping of evaporated milk, condensed milk, or coconut milk drizzled over the mountain of ice along with red rose syrup and sarsi syrup.

Perhaps I am bias, but I will always hold such a dear spot for our beloved original potbingsoo. It’s good to be back in the graces of Potbingsoo’s again. Cheers!

Many thanks to you Luis and showing us your Malaysia. It was a dream!

Curious, would you dare to try the local eats such as local eats, such as durian fruit or ABC?

  1. Isn’t the Central Market building just beautiful? Reminds me of Miami Art Deco district!

    Did you eat in Jalan Alor street?

  2. I think my previous comment didn’t go through…

    Anyways, was just saying that I love that Central Market building! Reminds me of Miami Art Deco district 🙂

    Did you eat in Jalan Alor street?

      1. No prob! I could see that there is a lot going on.

        Are your eyes ok?

        Jalan Alor was fun and good food, but I have no idea what the locals say about it. It seemed pretty authentic, many locals (but also many tourists). I would return there! If you go to my blog and choose the Malaysia tag, there should be some photos.

        1. Our eyes are doing great! Thanks for asking. We got our all clear bill of health and do not have any more follow up’s unless we have issues and need to see someone.

  3. I would try some of the local eats, even though there’s too much going on with the ABC 😉

    1. You are so adventurous Grisely! I used to think it was like Fear factor trying some of these foods… but now I look forward to it and always look for crazy things to try.

  4. Beautiful shots as always! I love that escalator picture and the dragon fruit pile – they both look so alien and adventuresome.

    1. Thank you Josh! You are so kind. HA HA the escalator was actually Mr. B. He really liked that when we were going up to the next floor and thought it would make a good photo. The dragon fruit was yummy and just begged to be photoed because of its vibrant color.
