why midvalley?

It had been a loooooooooooooooooong time since i went to Midvalley.. so after chatting with my bb on skype, i drove to Midvalley and met Tony at 'the Manhattan Fish Market' for lunch.. well eating fish is better than eating fast food, right? trying to cut down my carbs.. don't want my bb to say i gain weight when he's away :p~

Anyways, after lunch we walked around and stopped by at the Sony concept store.. saw a few nice looking video cams.. hmmmm.. bb, think we need one? for our holiday OR er... our 'quality' time.. hehe.. the cams are quite small and light.. but it's up to my bb entirely whether to buy or not..

Tony was sweet enough to accompany me, aunty to do some grocery shopping.. haha.. i AM older than him PLUS i'm married.. lol.. bought some seafood, lettuce, some seasoning and RiBENA! tony and me parked at the same floor and same place so he helped me to carry my things to the car park.. before goign to the car, as usual we have to pay for parking.. so i casually asked tony if he paid and he told me that now Midvalley is charging per hour! WTF! i asked 'since when?' and he told me since march.. SO, that proves how long i've been to Midvalley..

Actually i still remember the last time i was at Midvalley, i was stuck in a jam.. i sms-ed my bb and told him that i HATE Midvalley and he replied 'now only you hate it?' *me, eyes rolling* like my bb, i should've hate it long long time ago COZ :-
- in order to enter the parking, we've to at least make 1 round AROUND the shopping mall
- to get out from the parking AND to exit the Midvalley area to either KL or PJ, we've to make almost 1 round too
- weekends would be IMPOSSIBLE to find a parking
- it'd be jam when it's raining, after office hour, weekends AND after movie before midnight
- the queue to the cinema would be DAMN long
- toilets would be crowded during weekends
- basically the shops in Midvalley, you could find it in 1Utama or anywhere else

I'm still wondering if the condos next to Midvalley is FULLY occupied or not.. as the people staying there would be stuck in the jam coming back from the office during office hour and will be stuck at home during weekends.. it IS IMPOSSIBLE for them to drive out.. they could be stuck in the jam for an hour or so..

Worst scenario : would be when you finally drove 1 round to the parking, then suddenly the entrance of the parking is closed! o.O am sure you'd swear all the way to another parking entrance.. i just DO NOT know why people keep coming back.. AND now, they've change the parking rates *gosh* tony couldn't agree more that 1Utama has the BEST parking rate and spacious parking space..

Why would they change the parking rates? is it becoz they realize that people would spend the whole day at Midvalley and it's a waste for not charging more? is it coz they need more money for their next project. Midvalley 2? *sigh*

i love midvalley! and 1U too. then again, in kl i rely heavily on lrt so i don't have much to complain.

Baby Janez said...

i actually dont mind MV cos it is 10mins from my home and normally if i wanna go shop, i usually go there around 4 or 5 pm..cos then there's no jam at all and parking is easier to find then in the afternoon cos then alot of shoppers will probably leave cos they r already there around noon, i was there during sunday, bliv me, if u wanna go mv during weekends, go in the evening. Gurantee no jam.

why i know so much? cos ive been living here for more than a decade, and i know the outs n ins of MV..hehehehe

btw Nic, nice pasta you have below. Yum Yum, im a pasta addict myself, therefore tomorrow will be going to 1U , italliannies for their all u can eat 19.90 pasta..mamamia

Russ said...

I HATE MIDVALLEY SO FREAKING MUCH!!! Kekeke... hey, hedonistics, how do u go to midvalley by LRT? Stop at Bangsar and walk? I guess 1U is also quite hard to go to by LRT or public transpot, maybe KLCC, which is overpriced.. life can be a real bitch sometimes.. but for ppl with cars, I reckon 1U the curve, that area is the best.. for shopping, watching movies, etc, and at least the bloody owner doesnt make his customers go round n round for his good feng shui and to suck more money out of his customers like in MidfreakingValley! :P

Tony said...

Sheesh ! i wonder whats so special about that place ? 1U and the curve is waaaaayy much better than that placed....

Lovegoddess: seriously u were there ? why didnt we bump into each other ? Aiyah....

Russ : Thats how i always go to MV last time, park at the lrt station and then walk to MV. Some more the parking is quite stuffy.

Nicole: i was a pleasure ahving lunch with u ^_^ hmm... but for a payment next pasta goes to me 1st muahahaha *evil grin*

Baby janez: i pity more to those that bought the condo there, in and out from that idiotic place is just mad...

With the new phase starting biz in Sept 2007, traffic around Mv will definitely get worse.

:: Nicole :: said...

poor those ppl who stays there *shaking my head* what's SO great about mv anyway?

PurpLe~MuShRooM said...

Mid Valley has everything under 1 roof. Thats why people still goes there. Me too... when i'm back in KL, i will go mid valley. Nice to shop ma!

:: Nicole :: said...

1U also got everything under 1 roof wat :p

Tony said...

Some more 1U is NOT as conjested as MV. Its quite easy in and out...Isn't thats the most important thing u need ? Some more parking is quite available although u have to park at the ope air.....

Russ said...

Everybody boycott MidValley!! :)

Baby Janez said...

Actually, come to think of it..I can find much more related to me items in MV, I hardly get to find anything from 1U seriously. Its pretty big but I find tht the new wing is kind of empty and with many branded shops, while the old wing has nothing except eneos to go to. I just go there for movie and probably food. Never shopping. Unless Im left without a choice la. If shopping, I will go for MV. LOL

So one MV freak here. tho tonight im going 1U. hmm..but MV's parking rates are terrible already..sigghhhh

PurpLe~MuShRooM said...

1U far for me. Mid Valley cater more for cheras, serdang and KL folks. Hehe.

Tony said...

What baby janez and purple mushroom sasid is quite true in a way... Guess its still up 2 personal choice wheter to battle through jam or distance =.=

:: Nicole :: said...

well, i'm a KL girl too.. but i like to go to PJ.. hehe..

Tony said...

Long Live One Utama ! Hurrah Hurrah !

*i dun just support it cuz i stay behind new wing =p*

for me, diff shopping complexes serve me diff purposes :-

- 1Utama (shop, movies, pasta, Bose)
- MV (pool, movies)
- KLCC (pasta)
- Sunway Pyramid (Apple store)
- Times Square (movies)
- Low Yat (comp stuff)
- Sg Wang (jeans)

Baby Janez said...

OH wow..seriously, I have never tot of it tht way. whatever i need is at Mv lor. Like for exp..clothes, food (chillis!!!) , movie. Thats bout it..Yea, I have to agree with nic, Sg wang is just for jeans or bottoms..and well, hate times square..uh..piramid is for ..nothing actually..dont go there at all..1U is for pets wonderland, itallianies, jack's place..uhh..movie..the curve is for Marche's, pet safari, ikea, and prob movie too..thats bout it
