when i take the family to KL on weekends, i'd like to get there by 11am latest, so i don't have to queue too long for parking at the mall. but this time, we're at the Curve at 12.15pm & there's already quite heavy traffic heading into the common entrance for Ikea/Curve/Tesco. oh oh, i thought, it's going to be one of those KL days.
but as we entered the Curve's parking lot, we were pleasantly surprised that there was still ample vacant lots. (we did find out later that it was cheaper to park at Ikea or Tesco)
no matter, it's always reassuring to have a good start to the day. 1st things 1st - lunch. Little Penang Cafe was a no-brainer - we haven't gone back to Penang this year yet & anywhere that served decent fare would win hands-down. the curry laksa was top-notch & the sambal that came with it was superb. the cendol was only so-so.
Borders are having a buy-1/free-1 sale & it didn't take long for me to make my choice.
i had Ten Commandments in laser disc format but that remained stacked in the cupboard when the player broke down & they don't make LD players anymore. & why King Authur? simply because it's produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, & i've always had a soft spot for Sir Lancelot.
i know these are difficult times, but 2 classics in original DVD for under RM70 was just too much to miss. & because i owed my daughter a treat, we had dinner at TGIF to round off a timely family day-out.
