KL Weekend

Got back home about 4 hours ago and went to sleep immediately after my shower because the missus had to work and the TV would otherwise have distracted her.

Quite a weekend, if not for the purpose we went there to achieve. The company was fun (BK had a story that sustained us for the whole journey), the lodgings sprawling, peaceful and beautiful (thanks to Belinda, Gillian and Sylvia, our wonderful hosts, and the food never-ceasing. The visit to the National Museum for Art was excellent and we spent hours poring through photographs from the past hundred years.

The rest of it, though... meh.

The event at the Alliance Francaise to launch Mois de la Photographie 2004? A bust. I mean, a tribute to Henri Cartier-Bresson? I didn't see that. The only reference to HCB was that he has died. The show, a tribute to him. Yeah, sure, but really, in no way was anything attributed to him.

Just as a reference.

Sheesh.

After the show we wanted to get some drinks, but the place recommended was closed. After wandering about the city for a while, we ended up at a place along the Bukit Bintang stretch (where Planet Hollywood is) for "fresh Italian gelato". The place was called "Lecka Lecka". Don't know what that means in Italian, but it might be "we guarantee you two strands of hair in every scoop of fresh Italian gelato." 'Cause that's what I got.

Value for money really.

    Lecka Lecka means lick lick in italian - or rather it would if it was spelt lecca lecca. I believe that lecka Lecka is a franchise operation that is operating in Malaysia - check out Patrick Mirandah coYummy - lecca lecca hair hair! An original concept no doubt :P

    Kinda puts a different spin on having a "hairy tongue", eh?
