It’s our fifth and last day in KL! 

I feel especially sad since I’ve grown to love the city so much! Also, it would be sad to say goodbye to Bob since he’s such a great host and I don’t think we had enough time to really hang out. 

When we woke up, we were greeted with a letter from Bob saying that he might not be able to say goodbye to us since he has a trip to Penang that day. 

  
We felt really bad that we couldn’t say goodbye to Bob (and that he still rusted us with his apartment even though he’s already gone for work!) so we decided to prepare a small gift for him. 

I bought a green tea cake for Bob which cost RM 45  and wrote him a special goodbye message. We also took the time to check out the travel cost for a train ride to Johor Bahru. Instead of going straight to Singapore, we’ll take the 11pm train ride to Johor Bahru so we could visit Legoland the next day. From Johor Bahru, we’ll ride a train to Singapore.

We purchased the tickets for the train to Johor Bahru from KL Sentral (RM 30) then I let vanity take hold by purchasing a L’oreal lipstick for RM 40 (what? i ran out of lipstick!). We also stayed for a while at Starbucks, so I purchased a cup of green tea latte for RM 15. I know, I know, why am I spending top much today? Well, it’s our last day in KL and I’m an emotional spender. I know, bad habit. Haha!

For lunch, I managed to buy the cheapest meal: RM 3 for a vegetable meal and RM 1.80. 

  
There’s a food stall that charges you for the amount of food on your plate. Apparently, vegetables are much cheaper than meat so I loaded up the vegetables on my plate. You could never go wrong with vegetables. 

We then packed up our stuff for the trip to Johor Bahru. Bob left us some food at the fridge so (yay! Savings!). By the time we finished packing and I finished prepping our farewell gift to Bob (along with a very short note that Kuya wrote since he has better handwriting), Bob came in the room and surprised us! As it turns out, he’s not leaving to Penang that day, but he’ll ne leaving the next day!

We hugged and I almost teared up. We couldn’t thank him enough for his kindness and generosity. He’s such an inspiring and intelligent person, and I learned so much from him. We’re so lucky to have him as our host.

He called for a taxi for us and we hugged him tight. Thanking him for the wonderful stay. He made sure to give the proper instructions to the taxi driver and we hugged for one last time. 

I’ll miss Bob. He’s such a great host.

Upon arrival at KL Sentral, we rushed to get to the train station for Singapore. 

   
   We managed to get there on time and prepped ourselves for our sleeping bunks. It’s been a long day and tomorrow is another exciting day. 

  

We prepped for sleep and looked forward to seeing Johor Bahru.
