Woke up at 12 noon ++... my condition wasn't any better than yesterday and yeah, I still got some bloody nose, but less blood than yesterday, so I guess it's getting better...
Anyway, we only did some shopping today... so I didn't do much photo shooting today, and with my body still feeling weak, add to my no mood to shoot... so only 4 photos worth sharing I guess...
And to wrap the day off, I slept at 12+ again, dunno why, just can't seem to be able to get an earlier sleep that day despite feeling weak... owh, and the whole day shopping, I only managed to buy a spec frame, an external HD & a figurine only... ahak... what to do.. I'm not really a shopping type of person... eheh... over and out... :)

It's the 2nd day of my KL get-away trip, woke up to some heavy head, and when I went to the bathroom, I notice that I got some bloody nose... it wasn't that serious, but it was quite a lot... had some lunch at Abg Bakri house before we set off for some sight-seeing...
Our first stop was actually to buy and eat some durian at a roadside stall... unfortunately, due to my mild fever, I was unable to eat the durian... boohoo...
Then off we go to Putra Jaya... initial plan was to watch the air balloon festival there, unfortunately, due to the extreme heat, we decide to just past through Putra Jaya and just do some sightseeing...
There were some photographers in front of the Istana Kehakiman building, so we decide to stop there and took some photo there...
Reached Bukit Bintang around 4pm+ and checked in at Bintang Warisan Hotel... one last snap before going into my room...
And due to me feeling unwell, I ended up sleeping from 6pm until the next day... yepz, that's how sick I was... ahak... so no nightlife for me on my first day at Bukit Bintang... eheh...
