It was a rainy Saturday morning, a perfect day to sleep in but I was due to meet up some friends from Jakarta at the Masjid Jamek lrt station around 1 pm. It took much will power to drag myself out from the bed, into the shower and out of the door.
And eventually I was 15 minutes late.
Thankfully, my friend Helga messaged me and said he wanted to pray first. Hehe. And so I entered the Mosque compound and find my way into the women's area, abet asking directions from an old man there. To tell you the truth, this was my very FIRST time praying at this historic mosque. Shameful to admit. And before entering the mushollah, I spotted Helga in his kain batik sitting with his friend just a few meters away. Oh well, will contact him later. =p

The weather was drizzling and I was concerned about out walk-around tour around KL in bad weather. But since another local friend wanted to lend his help, I opted to bring the lads to an open house session at one of my friend's house at Bangi. We used the lrt to Bandar Tasik Selatan to meet up with our supir (read: driver).
|Friends I met through My Selangor Story 2011 trip, Mohd Zaid (the supir) and Helga. =)|
After a round of Kambing Golek and Nasi Beriyani from my friend's house we headed to Putrajaya, the Administrative Center of Malaysia. Sadly, Helga and Singgih didn't eat much. They have such tiny tummies! =p
|We visited the Seri Warisan Bridge at Putrajaya|
After forcing the lads to jump while I became their helpful camera person (I can be a very persuasive person. ihikz), we headed to the most famous roundabout in Putrajaya to visit these two iconic buildings below.

|A place for worship and also ideal for tourists. =)|
|Treating them ice-cream on a rainy day is not advisable. Haha!|
|Clockwise from upper left : Bukit Bintang road, in front of Low Yat, Jalan Alor and the theme park inside Times Square.|
After maghrib, we headed to Merdeka Square. I wanted to show them the changing colors of Sultan Ahmad Samad Building during the night. It is a recommended spectacular view to behold! (Yes, I'm a big fan of lip-lap lights! Haha!)
|Managed to catch the different colors of the building. Well, I think there were only 4 colors. Errr...|
|Many people has gathered around this fountain. It was a surprise to see such a crowd during night-time!|
Tired and most definitely hungry by the time I finished my errands, we crashed at my favorite restaurant near my apartment to get dinner. And also it was easier for the driver to send me home right after we had our fill. Hehe. A girl have to think for herself when in a company of men.

With that we ended our evening and I was sent home. Zaid later sent these boys to their hostel at Jalan Sultan near Petaling Street. I believe they'll be heading to Melaka and Genting next. Enjoy your stay in Malaysia guys!
