Book Shops Hopping

Last weekend went down to KL with Michele for shopping. We arrived at about 10.30am and checked into Hotel Cardogan, Jln Bukit Bintang. Then began our 'adventure'......first to Petaling Street. En route gave a call to Ernestine who works nearby - behind the Swiss Garden Hotel. Chit chat with her for a while before proceeding to Petaling St.
Michele finally found the bookshop she has been looking for - bought her DVDs, VCDs and some T-shirts. Went into Macy to look-see and discovered some evenweave-looking fabrics in some nice colours. Bought a metre each of christmas red and green fabric, plus a shuttle for tatting! Washed the red fabric - was rather dirty and test whether the colour runs. It did, but after a few rinse it seems ok. Have not washed the green piece yet! Still have not began stitching on them!
Then we proceeded to KLCC and along the way to the LRT station we dropped in to Pasar Seni. Went straight to Kinokuya upon arrival at KLCC - bought a book on hardanger there. Michele didn't find what she was looking for. Since we were in Jln Ampang area, wanted to visit Cottage Patch and Haby, but was tired after all the walking. So we decided to go back to the hotel to rest before we meet up with Emily for dinner.
Emily took us to Amcorp Mall for dinner and sago pudding. Surprising, Michele finished her bowl of pudding! She gave another two shuttles and two balls of thread. Thanx, Em!
On Sunday, Ernestine came and took me to St John's Cathedral for mass. After mass, we went for breakfast, then headed for Berjaya Times Square - Borders. We spent nearly 5 hours there. Bought 2 pairs of shoes which were on sales! Found the mag American Patchwork and Quilting which June wanted and bought it for her. Will bring for her when we meet at Margaret's house at the end of the month! After Times Square, Ernestine drove us to Sunway Pyramid, PJ - my first time there! Spent a short time there as we have to go back to KL for a light meal before catching the bus at 7.30pm. Ernestine was anxious we couldn't make it to Puduraya on time! Phew! It was a tiring trip! Anyway, had took leave for the next day!
