In 2011, four million Indians -- comprising 10 per cent of the online population -- went on the Internet looking for coupons. According to Sriram Vadlamani at Asian Correspondent, there are about 50 group buying sites in India. "Almost everyone is in the group buying game," Vadlamani writes. "If everyones in it, someone has to win it. SnapDeal.com which had a village named after it, is the leader of the group buying pack. It had 1.5 million visitors for the month of June, 2011. Its closest rival is Dealsandyou.com with a near 1 million visitors. Mydala.com and Groupons Indian arm, Sosasta.com, are placed third and fourth respectively."
The fashion mall is housed at the indoor section of The Curve and it has been given the name The Walk'. Be prepared to do just that, walk, as there are many fashion brands at your fingertips. Esprit, G2000, Nike, Key Ng, British India, Giordano and U2 are among some of the notable brands that you can find at The Walk. Despite its reputation of being a fashion mall, The Walk also has a large following of bookworms as MPH and Borders are nicely placed at two different corners of the mall. Unfortunately, with the presence of the infamous 1 Utama Shopping Centre nearby, many retail outlets prefer the high traffic flow at 1 Utama which leaves The Curve struggling to reach its full capacity.

This new shopping mall has only one camera shop... Read that: ONE. Well, at least they even have the Canon EOS 5D there. It poisoned me well. Stuff are fairly expensive to what I can get tho. 1 Utama boasts about 2132901 more camera stores than it. Serious. Lets see: 2 Shong Lees, Photo Shangri-La, Best Denki, and the list goes on and on. Okay, pics. I quite like the design of Aeon Bukit Tinggi tho..."
Private rooms equipped with the latest audio visual equipment are available and the largest one of these rooms can hold up to 40 people. If singing isn't your forte and you'd rather be listening to music, try Laundry Bar, a famous hotspot for the young and the restless. It has become one of the main attractions at The Curve where people go to see and be seen. They have an endless list of cocktails to satiate your craving for a refreshing drink and dinner. This is because there is no need for I.D's to be whipped out unless when one intends to purchase alcoholic drinks.
Jeremy Horwitz, Editor-in-Chief of iLounge published in 2005: "A report on the presence of iPods in Malaysia's capital city of Kuala Lumpur could conclude in a single paragraph: unlike Tokyo, Japan and Singapore, the subjects of our last two reports, iPods are quite nearly invisible in this city of 1.5 million people. The most likely reason: surprisingly high prices in a country that, while rapidly modernizing, is still far below the economic levels of its most prosperous neighbors..." Horwitz visited stores and shops across the city, looking for iPod's -- "Creative Labs and Sony have a very significant presence in all of the places we've visited - a list that includes Asia's largest shopping centre, the Mid-Valley Megamall, numerous malls and shops around Kuala Lumpur's Golden Triangle, including Berjaya Times Square, Imbi Plaza, Low Yat Plaza, Suria KLCC and Sungei Wang Plaza, Chinatown, and elsewhere in the city." iPods on the other hand are hard to find (or at least were hard to find -- this story was written way back in 2005 lah!): "In many major stores we've seen, the iPod isn't available at all, but CD players and inexpensive competing MP3 players are. There aren't any Apple Stores here, and they're nowhere near as common a fixture at smaller vendors as they were in, say, Singapore. In fact, smaller vendors have very little to do with the iPod here. This isn't to say that the iPod is entirely missing in action in Kuala Lumpur - if you want one, you can go a little out of your way to find them locally (such as by looking online for approved retailers), though availability at even these stores is somewhat of a question mark. At major electronics stores such as Best Denki (above), current and discontinued iPods were being advertised, yet were limited in availability - one store was 'sold out' of 5G iPods, but had color-screened 4Gs, while the other was out of shuffles and 4GB nanos, but had 5G iPods and older iPod minis in two colors..."

La Gourmet House: Lot G-52, Ground Floor, The Curve
Jalan PJU 7/3
47800 Petaling Jaya. Phone: 03/7725 4279.
This place has been reviewed by WaiSikKai, who conclude: "Previously located in Ikano Power Centre, La Gourmet House has now relocated to The Curve and it seems the re-location has done them a world of good where patrons are concerned. We were there on a Sunday night and they were somewhat swamped by the number of patrons they had. We had to wait for a while before I decided to ask them for a menu.
"Their Smoked Duck Pasta (RM21.80) is said to be famous and it certainly lives up to that claim. It's a dry style pasta with the spaghetti being tossed in olive oil with other herbs. I enjoyed it thoroughly and they have every right to call it famous. They have some chili flakes in it but it is only very mildly spicy. They are also very generous with their ingredients with lots of duck and mushroom in it.
"The Farmer's Herb Grilled Sausage (RM18.00) arrived a bit cold. The sausages are decent but they were a bit cold and so was the mashed potato. The Sausage Sandwich with Bavarian Mustard (RM16.80) really came looking like a sandwich with the sausage placed in between two pieces of toast bread.
"The Spaghetti di Bosco (RM19.80) - creamy style pasta sauteed with mushrooms - was indeed very creamy and you can taste the blend of the mushroom in the sauce as well.
"We wanted to try their full sized pies but they only start serving that at 9 pm onwards.
"They have the nccvellux wireless system but don't expect them to respond to that. It's easier to catch attention by calling them. It took two attempts at getting some warm water and it never came.
"Dinner for 6 came up to RM113. It was a good meal but service was lacking..."
Marche Movenpick: .
Wrote the blogger KL People KL Food: "Last Sunday, I went to IKEA to shop for a few bundles of pussy willows. OMG, it was so jam-packed with families and the kids were playing around at the show room. We immediately head off to the market hall to get our to-buy things and went to the Curve to get a peace of mind.
"It was nearly 7 and Char Siew Bao suggested Marche for dinner. I donft really feel like having western food cus I believe that I had enough potatoes, broccolis, pastas and rocket leaves back in aussie. But anyway, I decided to give Marche a try as I was attracted by its ebuffet-likef concept.
"This is my Marche passport. You will be given a passport at the entrance of the restaurant and remember not to lost it! Or else you will receive a RM200 penalty, which will then be donated to a charity of your choice. Haha.. sounds interesting...
"There is this mushroom counter which serves different types of mushroom dishes. I took this yummy saute mushroom, priced at RM 8.50. The portion served was so generous that I had a hard time finishing 'em..."
The Apartment: .
As the name suggests, this place is set up exactly like your apartment -- with its own bedrooms, dining rooms, living rooms and even bathroom style dining areas, where people dine amongst the white tiles and plumbing. A gimmick perhaps -- just like that prison torture restaurant in Shibuya, Japan. The Apartment has been reviewed by Memoirs of a Chocoholic who wrote: "Nestled in ground floor of "the Walk" section of the Curve shopping center (in between Italiannies and TGIF), the Apartment is one of the newer restaurants - taking over the demised Slippery Senoritas.
!Being a mushroom lover, I had to order the Grilled Portabello Mushrooms (about RM14++) as an appetizer:

THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING GOING ON IN KUALA LUMPUR, AND AQUARIA KLCC MAKES A COOL PLACE TO HANG OUT, GO ON A DATE, ETC. Here are some of the current and upcoming events happening at the aquarium:
Reptilian Encounter: For the full month of March 2006, the sealife of Aquaria KLCC are joined by some of the stars of the reptile world. Some of the attractions of this exhibit include big Burmese pythons, a 26-foot long.
t h e + o t h e r + a q u a r i u m
WITH ALL OF THIS HYPE, YOU WOULD THINK THAT AQUARIA KLCC WAS THE FIRST AQUARIUM EVER OPENED IN MALAYSIA. But of course that is not true, there is another aquarium in the KL area, coupled with the city zoo. Located 13 kilometers north^east of Kuala Lumpur, the National Zoo and Aquarium contains hundreds of different species of animals, birds, and reptiles. The aquarium has an extensive collection of marine and freshwater species. Both the Zoo and Aquarium are open daily from 9am to 6pm. Admission: RM5 (Adult), RM2 (Child).
e x p e r t s + s a y
AS THE EXPERTS SAY: "Akuarium yang terletak di tingkat bawah tanah mempamerkan pelbagai jenis hidupan marin dan batu karang, AQUARIA@KLCC akan menggunakan teknologi multi-media canggih di mana pengunjung dapat menikmati pengalaman menarik hidupan dasar laut. Antara tarikannya ialah pengunjung dapat menyentuh dan memegang beberapa hidupan laut, berenang bersama jerung dan mempelajari secara lebih dekat kajian saintifik hidupan dasar laut. Terowong "Laluan bergerak" akan membawa para pengunjung ke akuarium ini bagi menikmati keadaan sebenar hidupan laut dalam yang amat menarik. Terdapat lebih daripada 3,000 spesis hidupan marin seperti jerung besar, ikan pari dan belut elektrik berenang dengan bebas.
"Sedangkan bagi warga negara Malaysia yang membawa MyKad atau KTP untuk tiket dewasa RM 28 dan anak-anak RM 22. Anehnya, tidak terlalu banyak orang Malaysia yang berkunjung ke sini. Padahal wartawan detikcom Arin Widiyanti berkunjung pada Minggu 11 November 2007 sore sekitar pukul 16.00 waktu setempat.
"Setelah melepas uang RM 38, wisatawan langsung memasuki ruang pameran. Suasana yang didapat tak terlalu asing. Serasa di Seaworld Ancol, Jakarta Utara yang mulai beroperasi pada 1992. Suasana dibuat gelap sehingga hanya cahaya dari dalam kolam yang menyinari ruangan...
"Bosan memandang, kaki melangkah ke aquarium raksasa. Seperti di Seaworld Ancol juga, suasana dibuat temaram untuk menambah kenikmatan mata melihat 283 spesies laut yang dipamerkan. Di bawah naungan aquarium raksasa, pengunjung seperti berada di dalam perut laut.
"Pengunjung tidak perlu repot-repot berjalan untuk menikmati pemandangan dalam aquarium. Pengunjung cukup berdiri, biar eskalator mendatar yang mengantar pengunjung mengelilingi terowongan bawah air.
