Star Scholarship Interview In Kuala Lumpur

Took leave to take my girl to Kuala Lumpur.  Both of us left for the train station around 7.30am to catch the ETS to Kuala Lumpur Central.  The interview was held at 2pm in the afternoon....
Morning ticket is expensive.... one seat cost RM45.00
Came with free bun and hot drink....
Upon reaching KL central, it was only around 10.30am 
and since there was ample time left, 
we took a cab from the station to Mid Valley...
first time venturing out to KL alone with my girl....
let her relax first before going for the interview...
after window shopping for an hour, 
we landed ourselves here....
The Chilli!
a picture to remember... 
we ordered Firecracket fish... or something like that.... 
we shared it out...
plus an enormous dessert...
Should I "wallop" it all???

After our so-called lunch in Chili, we took a cab to the college for the 2pm interview.  I was quite blur, I didn't know that there are executive cabs outside Mid Valley, both of us just climbed into the first cab waiting there.  The cab driver was nice and honest... he told us that his is an executive cab (it was not a limousine) and the charges will be a bit higher...  I ended up paying RM16 for a 10-15 minutes drive... not too bad actually...

tomorrow's post - interview... 

Flying Chillies

  3. Sounded so familiar. I remembered taking the train to KL for an interview too. Not for a scholarship but a job. I went alone.

  4. We have a restaurant chain here that is very similar, it even looks like this, it is called Chili's. The fish looks very spicy, and the name must mean it is.

  5. The dessert looks attractive.


  6. Good luck to your girl, hope she gets it. good - still can go window shopping and eat - if my girl, don't dream. And probably the father also, can't sleep some more. LOL!!!
