My Next Door Neighbour: Stone's Throw Away From KSL City Jalan Serigala

I find myself going back to KSL City repeatedly because of so many awesome deals and irreplaceable food places around that area. The first time I went to KSL, I did a cut+colour+treatment hair service for approximately S$50 (not all salons are so cheap, you've got to ask around the top floor of KSL). It doesn't promise celebrity-standard hairstyle but for that price, it's definitely great value. This time, I'm back to hunt for their food.

For Singaporeans who are used to order and structure in their transport system, getting to KSL will not be as straightforward with signboards in your face. But don't panic! It's not difficult at all, here are some plain instructions:

1. Get past Malaysia customs.
2. Get to the bus station at the ground floor. It's slightly obscure but out in the open; there'll be a lot of people waiting around that area.
3. Look at the bus journey routes on the individual bus boards.
4. Look out for "KSL City".
5. Wait for bus.
6. When boarding the bus, give the exact amount required, ie. RM1.50/pax
7. If you only have notes, they will not refund you the change.
8. Therefore, prepare sufficient coins.

Now, to show you an incredibly comforting and lovely meal with my parents at one of the street-coffee shops along Jalan Serigala right outside KSL City! This is where you can enjoy seriously authentic and yummy Malaysian-style charsiew and seafood horfun. If I can choose what to eat for my last meal... these two will probably be part of the menu (what, you didn't think I'll just eat one thing for my last meal, did you?). The char siew is perfect done, the level of saltiness and crunch of the skin and the meltilicious roasted pork meat... when I start wondering if I can eat any faster, I know it's damn delicious. The seafood horfun was overshadowed but nevertheless, also excellent. I'm biased because I love seafood horfun, but in that sense I've also eaten quite a bit to say that this sits neatly at the top of the board.

To quote one of my wise friends, you do not go to Malaysia and simply eat "shopping centre food". One of the tips when you go to these coffee shops - try to hit the street around four or five in the afternoon when the hawkers are getting ready for the dinner crowd. You get piping hot dishes fresh off the stove. You've definitely got to remember to get out of the mall and try this as well for a different experience! Safety is often on the minds of Singaporeans when they go JB, but if you don't brandish your iPhone or wallets in public, keep your bags close to you, exercise common sense and keep a low profile when you walk along the streets, it should be okay. People generally mind their own business.
