" Make new friends. But keep the old. Those are silver, these are gold " 

" Never give up. For even river someday wash dams away " 

" 60 plus, and aging like fine wine. 100 plus, you are an old oak probably enjoying drinking non-carbonated isotonic drink "

" My Jalan Jalan (Walkabout) 2 days visit to Klang Old Town & Kuala Lumpur (National Musuem & Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens) with my travel buddies from Singapore (Lam) & USJ Subang Jaya (KC) on 1-2 August 2018 "

My travel buddy from Singapore, Lam was in KL for 3 days and also to join me & my Klang buddies for an overland train trip from KL Sentral > Bangkok, Thailand for 12 days commencing 3rd August 2018 . 

KC, my travel buddy from USJ, Subang Jaya volunteered to drive us around and we had the opportunity to take Lam to visit the Klang Old Town, the National Museum & Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens. KC also brought us to eat Bak Kut Teh at the popular Restoran Seng Huat Bak Kut Teh stall in Klang & also enjoyed another lovely lunch in Day 2 at an old established beef ball noodles shop (Song Kee) in Chinatown, Kuala Lumpur.

Re-visiting the National Museum & KL Lake Gardens was an interesting experience as my last visit to these places was almost a decade ago !
