Yesterday, my whole family left the house around 10:30AM. We rode the LRT to Ampang Park, where I was able to purchase a can of Zippo lighter fluid. My Zippos haven’t had any fuel in them since we were in Beijing. My mom and dad got a haircut, and my brother bought The Sims 2. We headed out to 大同 (Royal China is its English name) for lunch. Very good food, and they serve non-Halal food so we were able to get some pork. We ate dim sun, bought some moon cakes, and hopped on the LRT once again. My parents needed to purchase airplane tickets for my dad and my sister to get to the States. We all went to the Putra World Trade Center, where they were holding the MATTA Fair.
That’s where the day went downhill. We were stuck inside a cramped environment trying to purchase plane tickets. Remember, this fair is all about travel and it’s a good way to buy cheap airplane tickets. The power was down, so we couldn’t actually complete the transaction for the airplane tickets until an hour or so later. There were a ton of people moving to and fro, and the A/C wasn’t working well. Eventually, we secured 2 tickets for a flight to JFK, and two tickets for a flight to Shanghaiduring Spring Break. Since I’ll be turning 16 before Spring Break, I won’t have to fly as an unaccompanied minor from now on. =D
On the way back, we stopped by KLCC. My brother, Justin, decided that he wanted something to eat so he went to the Cinnabon. I went with my dad to the Maxis Service Center to see if we could get my SIM card replaced. After walking through the rain (without knowing that there was actually a path to reach the center without stepping foot outside of KLCC), we reached the service center. I asked the only counter still open if they could help me replace my SIM card. It turns out that the counter that performs the service closes at 1:30PM everyday, meaning we were about 4 hours late.
Upon returning home, we received some new furniture that we ordered last week. We sent back the bookshelf/display case because it didn’t have pre-made holes to mount the shelves on. We also received a large TV table. Some touch-up work is required for the glass panels on the sides, so we’ll wait before putting in all of our audio and video equipment.
That sums up yesterday. =)
