Was feeling quite tired after yesterday's exertions, and so decided to have a day where I could take it easy. The flight to KL was smooth, but over cooled again and by the time I got to Imbi, it was late afternoon.
For the last two days of the trip, I had made a new reservation to stay at the Federal Hotel. It has a fairly grand entrance and an impressive lobby, though I have to say that beyond that the place was an enormous disappointment, especially since it was more expensive than anywhere else I'd stayed and that was without breakfast. Sure, the room was very spacious (bigger than my flat in Tokyo, I think), but everything was slightly worn out and old, and certainly not of a standard that justifies the price in my eyes. I certainly won't be coming back in the future.

Settled on a pub/restaurant for a light meal of chicken satay and Penang style stir-fried prawns, which was good and not too filling. On the way back to the hotel, decided to pop in to a very stylish looking outdoor bar next door called Yi Qi @BBPark. It had subdued lighting and nice interior decor, though the atmosphere was quite odd. The staff (all Chinese and female) were not especially friendly and took their time to serve customers, and it all seemed somewhat cold, so I just stayed for the one drink.
