  1. I am from Sarawak and plan to take breakfast at Kedai Kopi Swee Kong around 6.30am. From Cititel Express to Kedai Kopi Swee Kong in early morning, what is the best mode of transport? Is it far to walk and is it safe (say at around 6am)? Or if I drive, is it easy to find parking space near Kedai Kopi Swee Kong?
