The Gardens at Midvalley

Yes, I’m blogging again despite of me saying on the previous post that I was busy. But that’s the truth and here’s another truth. This is a backlog. Not a real time post update. As for my reviews on Gundam and Dragonaut; those have to wait for some other day.

It is exactly two weeks since my trip to KL. Nothing extravagant there, really. I happened to have had attended at concert in KL that day, so I took some time to shop around KL. Otherwise I’ll home which I have not intended to do at that time, or stuck here alone in Kelantan. Last year, I first went to Pavilion KL when it had recently opened then, there was a strong appeal to the mall that gives it the wow-factor. I thought to myself, Pavilion KL has to be the most astonishing mall ever in Malaysia. That aside, Pavilion KL is also playground for the rich and overly pampered. I’m saying this because of the fact that this mall is the most “expensive” mall in Malaysia to date, with their lavish offerings of high-end (expensive) and fashionable (expensive) items for Malaysia’s rich bastards opulent consumers. Opulent, as for filthy rich. Nonetheless I still enjoy Pavilion KL as much as many other shopping malls in KL, partly because of its amazing shopping experience (and of course, Paul Frank and J.Co Donuts). However Pavilion KL is not the only player in that field. Introducing The Gardens at Midvalley.

The Gardens at Midvalley

The Gardens is an extension of the already-big Midvalley mall and this is no ordinary extension. Specifically chartered for the rich and those with exquisite taste, The Gardens offers something totally different from the common shopping scene in Malaysia. From my standpoint, The Gardens made a huge effort to bring art and also pampering to the shopping experience. From the exterior, the design of the mall is different than other typically misshapen shopping malls. I must say, the architecture works for Pavilion KL is good but nothing can compare to the artistic architecture of The Gardens. If the exterior impresses certain some, the interior will blow everyone way. The moment I stepped inside The Gardens, I was wowed. Rather than feeling impressed, I felt great appreciation to the works of the interior designer to come up with something different than any other malls. Besides the design, The Gardens also offers a wide range of specialty stores for many kind of interests, including Singapore’s first overseas outlet of Robinsons. There is also Malaysia’s first ever Cafe Baskin-Robbins.

What I really like about The Gardens is the shopping experience. I’m not saying that Pavilion KL is any worse than The Gardens. Both are equally good in their own way. In Pavilion KL, space is the theme design of the mall. The key is that space offers comfort and comfort is what the customers experience. In The Gardens on the other hand, there is a feast for the eyes for the amazing interior designs and also comfortable cushioned couches for the customers to relax. Over there, the customers are pampered. The Gardens is definitely an experience like no other.

How much did LCCT improved you ask?

LCCT or Low Cost Carrier Terminal which I dubbed as warehouse airport due to its conspicuous design of a structure of a former aircraft depot, if not a plane hangar. When LCCT was first inaugurated, the building really had served up its sole purpose – to handle passengers and their bulky cargoes. I would like to emphasis on the word “handle” because the airport was not originally designed for the comfort of the passengers. Knowing that this airport would only handle low cost air carriers, hence its name, the airport’s services are only adequate to meet the barest essentials. Herald to the power of people. Many users of the airport including the staffs of the main tenant AirAsia, raised their voice of concern about the level of services provided at the airport. Hey, don’t go pointing fingers to AirAsia. They’re are not exactly the ones responsible to maintain the terminal. In fact, AirAsia being committed to their loyal passengers came up with ideas to tackle the issues and brought them up the real people in charge of the all airports in Malaysia, including LCCT – Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MABH). What’s more is that LCCT is affiliated to its ultra modern and luxurious counterpart, KLIA that is under the same management. Ever since then, things have really improved a lot in terms of their services. Continue reading ‘How much did LCCT improved you ask?’
