Can’t find your car after spending your time inside Malaysia’s shopping malls? This easy tip may help.
Malaysians spend a lot of time in shopping malls. I’m not sure what’s the exact figure but probably on average they spend between 2-3 hours during weekdays and double that time during weekends. This is probably one of the reasons why property developers keep on building massive malls in Malaysia.
In Kuala Lumpur and around Klang Valley – Suria KLCC, Mid Valley Megamall, The Gardens and One Utama are among the biggest malls you can find. If you’re not used to its car park (like me), you’ll have trouble finding your car when leaving the mall.
The easiest way would be taking a photo of the location of your car. The car park in Kuala Lumpur’s malls are marked with alphabets and numbers. If you have a good memory then this won’t be a problem for you. In my case, I can easily forget so taking a photo with my smartphone is truly useful.
One Utama Mall in Bandar Utama has the most confusing car park ever. I’ve been there so many times over the past 6 weeks and there were twice when I couldn’t find my car. Maybe it’s just me, I don’t know.
Besides taking a photo of my car’s location, I will also need to remember which entrance did I use to enter the mall; since One Utama has so many entry and exit points. Memorizing the shops near the entrance may also help.
I’m not sure if you’ve had trouble finding your car before but I believe that if it can happen to me, it will and may happen to anyone else as well.
One final tip – be sure to watch your phone has enough juice.
