MRT & LRT in Kuala Lumpur

When I was in Kuala Lumpur, the main mode of transport for me was taking the MRT & LRT.  It is absolutely convenient and affordable means of transportation.

Within the city of Kuala Lumpur, the roads are very congested especially during peak hours. If you are traveling using the KL Buses and Taxis, the traffic is at a crawling speed.  Therefore a lot of time would be wasted being stuck on the roads.

To familiarize the MRT/ LRT network, the first thing I did was to get the FREE KL tourist map from the Tourism Office of Malaysia at the airport.  This map is very helpful to me for navigating around KL using the trains and identifying the locations and roads.

It is much easier to travel using the TOUCH N GO My Rapid KL store value train card. You can buy this from any MRT / LRT station counters. Using this card is cheaper for traveling as discount is given for each trip; as compared to using cash to buy a fare card for each trip.

The MRT & LRT network are extensive in Kuala Lumpur.  It is fast, comfortable and easy to connect.  Try to avoid the morning and evening peak hours; as lots of people are using the trains.  The MRT & LRT is my preferred mode of transport while in KL.

YouTiao / Cakoi at Macdonald’s Malaysia

I stayed at Somerset Ampang during my recent trip to Kuala Lumpur.  Near the hotel is the Intermark Mall which is about 5 minutes walk from Somerset Ampang. There is a Macdonald’s restaurant at the ground floor.

There is one food item that interest me and that was the Youtiao ( Chinese dough or donut ) or known as  Cakoi in MacDonald’s. I ate this Youtiao or Cakoi almost everyday during my stay. It was crispy and surprisingly not oily at all. The Cakoi was also not salty; in fact it tasted slightly bland which suited my taste. Overall it is a delicious food item for breakfast or tea break.

I do hope that Macdonald’s Malaysia will continue to sell Youtiao or Cakoi for as long as possible.
