Train Journey To Kuala Lumpur & Lunch In Petaling Street.

Hubby and I together with some friends have signed up for a Christian teaching conference in Kuala Lumpur. Since we have decided not to drive there, we booked our accommodation with a Christian hostel within walking distance to the conference venue. The first teaching session was on Friday, after lunch.
  So early Friday morning, a friend sent us to the Ipoh railway station to catch the 9 am train to Sentral Kuala Lumpur.
I had the window seat, so my camera was kept busy. In between chatting, playing e-games, I snapped photos with my mobile phone.
 View of some "kampung" houses.
Banana plantation
A cement factory.
It is just next to the railway track.


Getting ready to alight from the train.
We have reached Kuala Lumpur!
Waiting for the LRT train to take us to Pasar Seni.
We alighted from the LRT train and walked to the hostel which is a short distance away.
We passed by the Gospel Hall, Kuala Lumpur.
We checked into our rooms and waited for the rest of our group to reach. We rested awhile before we took a short cut to Petaling Street to look for lunch.
We didn't want to go far because we didn't want to be late for the conference.
We had 1 hour to finish lunch and walk back to the conference hall.
All these roasts were so tempting!
Roast duck and bbq pork for hubby's lunch.
It included a plate of rice.
Spicy dry version Ban Mee for me.
Here you can see the flat noodle. It has minced pork, wood fungus strips, fried crispy anchovies and green veggie.
The spicy dried ban mee was served with a bowl of soup which included 2 meat balls and green veggie. This was our first meal in Petaling Street.

They worshiped together regularly at the Temple each day,
met in small groups in homes for Communion,
and shared their meals with great joy and
thankfulness, praising God.
