Kl Survival Guide
Being cash-strapped is a pain, especially if you’re in KL! So here are some cost-cutting things you can do whilst enjoying yourself.
How to make your ringgit stretch.
You’re in the mood to dineout but cross it out after checking your funds. Stop right there! Groupon is an excellent site to buy vouchers for meals that are worth much more. For daily meal plans go to economy rice stalls. A meal at one of these can go as low as RM3.50.
Watch a movie at any Golden Screen Cinema outlet on Wednesdays as tickets tend to go as cheap as RM6. For an outdoor option, cook a tiny feast and head to the Perdana Botanical Garden Kuala Lumpur for a picnic. Entrance is free and we must say the green scenery with the city skyline in the background makes a priceless view!
Make a grocery list with a quantity to last you for at least a month and buy it all via TESCO online. The store delivers to most places around the Klang Valley with a service charge of RM10. This way you won’t just be saving petrol and parking money but your precious time as well.
If you’re taking the public transportation system, get yourself a MyRapid card for unlimited travel trips at only RM100 per month. If you’ve got your own ride, get the monthly city or town council public parking pass instead of parking at privately owned properties. But since the early bird gets the worm, you’ll need to be there early to get a good parking spot!
