The first leg of my "Singapura to Chiang Mai by Train" ended at Kuala Lumpur 1500 hours. The plan was to change into another set of clothing for the afternoon exploration before the next leg up Padang Besar by night train. Unfortunately it was public holiday (Jan 1) and the station shower room "tutup" (closed). So where can I change and do my business comfortably?
We know station toilets are dirty and crowded and I avoid changing or washing up for that reason. One day somebody demonstrated how we can enjoy the finer things in life - for free. The trick is to leverage on idle resources around you. In KL, I tried his recommendation which you will read today. In Bangkok, I repeated the same trick and got away with it.
If you want to enjoy the toilet equivalent of a presidential suite, exit KL Sentral by the taxi queue entrance and make your way to the connecting hotels - Hilton and Le Meridien. There is a small lounge with a lift. Go up three storeys to the lobby and enter the first toilet from the lift. Choose the cubicle at the end of the corridor. Lock the door. Get changed, sit back and enjoy .... as you blitzed to the hotel music.
If you read carefully, there is one little detail I missed out. This is deliberate, the title is a quiz remember? When you reach the lobby level and see the fork, should you take the left or right access? Each will lead to the respective hotel's lobby and toilet(s).
So left or right for the toilet? Which hotel does it belong to?
