Petaling Street is a popular tourist destination because of the various merchandise and food options this flea market offers. My ex-colleague from the Netherlands once told me he could get a reasonably priced suit with acceptable quality from a local tailor here. I visited Petaling Street mostly for food; the Kim Lian Kee Hokkien Mee, Air Mata Kucing, Ikan Panggang (grilled fish) Portugis (junction of Jalan Petaling and Jalan Hang Lekir). New cafes/ coffee places are mushrooming this area in recent years due to the popular trend of sipping a cuppa coffee in a comfortable air-conditioned nicely decorated shop which is something I truly enjoy as well.
Let’s track the footprints of these two love birds as they trail the famous Jalan Petaling stopping for a drink of the absolutely refreshing air mata kucing (Dried Longan drink) on a hot day in KL, for blessing and protection at the Guan Di Temple, and Cafe etc. where they can grab some lunch and coffee as their journey is captured by a journalistic photographer.
