Went to Jalan TAR, searched for parking (since all of my previous trips involved walking/train/bus trips), saw a Metro sign....went in and discovered that they charged RM3.50 per hour.
Then, when asked the lady in the Metro booth, she said that there is no free run, so kalau u nak keluar dalam masa 2 minit, still kena bayar the RM3.50. Sib baik dia ada tunjuk another place yang charged parking per entry.
So, kitorang just pegi to Wisma Bumi Raya and parked over there. Got charged RM4.
After playing tag and let's chase our tails round Jalan TAR....we calculated that for the RM3.50 per hour...we would need to pay overall something in the vicinity of RM25 for that day's parking only. Deng, that much only for parking?? I can get a meal at Nandos, thank you very much.
Thank you dear Metro lady for the tip. You had saved us a meal.
So, for other revelers, below are some pixs of the parking lot. From in front of KWSP, you have to go a bit further....it is after the LRT station, before the Quality Hotel...across the road from Medan MARA.
Well, the place IS a bit dark, so ladies...pls make sure that you are with your friends when parking over there. However, there is an attendant looking over the cars coming in and out, so not so bad laaaa.
rina,thanks for the tips, been looking for parking berbumbung but cheap there hehe
One is glad to be of service. ;)

And eternity in an hour.
