As I blogged about it earlier this month, I was out there together with 9 bloggers from Thailand and 9 bloggers from Malaysia for a challenge in exploring the city together during Malaysia Wonders challenge. It was a fun but short trip to get to know new blogger friends but I am glad I did came for this challenge. It definitely reminds me my previous blogging challenge few years back.

In short, there were total three challenges for us to complete at the end of the day and I am quite happy when our team won the Best Mocktail Design Category in Grand Millennium KL Hotel. Let me try to make short story of what we did that day kay??

Our gathering spot was Einstein Cafe which hidden on top of an optical shop at Jalan Sultan. It is located around Petaling Street so if you need a daily fix with a cup of warn coffee, do drop by this place. Get the seat near the window for morning sun =)

Our first two challenges were combined together, one is to get the street food we can find at Petaling Street according to Seeties' Collection guide list and then use the rest of the money to buy souvenirs that has Malaysia's element in it. It was challenging but I guess that was the best moment for me to improve my bargaining skill with aunty boss instead of uncle shop owner. I still remember we work with other team to share the food cost so we get to buy more souvenirs later

But in the end we didn't get to win any of the above challenge because we ain't pretty enough our bargaining skill not as good as the ladies lol!!

Spotted Daniel Wellington replica at Petaling Street

WHen we were hunting for souvenirs, I saw many shop selling watch replica that looks alike like the genuine one. They even have Daniel Wellington in store haha. But hey, you should buy genuine Daniel Wellington from Zalora especially when you can use "ZBAPX8H" voucher code to get 15% discount. You can easily save up to RM130 for more shopping wei. Read more about the Zalora discount code here. 

Still, if you don't mind getting replica here, make sure sharpen up your bargaining skill for a good buy in Petaling Street =) I still recommend you to try the Tau Fu Fa Soybean Custard at the intersection. It is good~

After finished the challenges under the hot sun, we then departed to Grand Millennium KL Hotel as the pitstop of the day. Thanks Grand Millennium KL for offering us a stay and we do appreciate your comfort room =) #GMKL is located right at the centre of the city and right beside the shopping heaven Pavilion KL. Such a 'dangerous' location if you are a shopaholic haha.

After completing all three challenges, finally it is time for us to have a good dinner at Serai @ Pavilion KL. I like the ambience at Serai because they have this dining corner near the window with long tables and even a enclosed room for private gathering/party.

 It was definitely not enough time for us bloggers to really get to know each other with just one day but I am glad I got to know you guys =D We added each other on Facebook and social media so we can still contact each other and hopefully I will go to Thailand soon for more travel adventures!!
