WaterWorld is a live water show with full of stunts, gun shots and explosions where you can find it in Universal Studios Singapore. The concept is based from science fiction film called Waterworld (1995). This film is directed by Kevin Reynolds and Kevin Costner. In my opinion, I think this is the best action show (live) in Universal Studios Singapore. This place might not suitable for those who have heart problem because too much explosions.

Sentosa Island (formerly known as Pulau Belakang Mati) is located in the south of Singapore. It’s the most popular resort and theme park in Singapore. You can go there either by bus or cable car. Sentosa Island is a place where you can have exciting outdoor and indoor activities with friends and family.

It’s also a nice place for honeymoon because there are three wonderful beaches in Sentosa Island which are Palawan Beach, Siloso Beach and Tanjong Beach. Palawan Beach is the place where a suspension bridge links to the Southernmost Point of Continental Asia (Asia’s closest point to the Equator). Sentosa Island has the biggest war museum in the South East Asia. It is the centerpiece of Britain’s spectacularly unsuccessful “Fortress Singapore” strategy in World War II. Sentosa Island also has an Underwater World where the oceanarium is home to more than 2,500 fishes from 250 different species. There are too many other attractions to list up.

I can bet that you will have an unforgettable traveling experience. It’s worth for you to spend the whole day for enjoyment. Have a nice holiday!

Bandung is a city in West Java, Indonesia. Well known for its many shopping malls, factory outlets, universities, denim jeans industry, textile industry, distros and roadside cafes. Located 768 m (2,520 ft) above sea level. Due to its elevation, the climate in Bandung is cooler than most Indonesian cities and can be classified as humid; the average temperature is 23.6 °C (74.5 °F) throughout the year. This city is surrounded by volcanic mountains. Bandung is located about 1,252 km from KLIA, Malaysia. The return-flight ticket fare for Kuala Lumpur-Bandung is around RM 544 with AirAsia. Bandung is the second biggest city in Indonesia after Jakarta. The population is around 3 millions. You can imagine how crowded the city is.

The worst thing I don’t like about Bandung is the traffic. The roads in Bandung are very small to support the 3 millions populations’ makes the traffic become very havoc. Most of them ignore the road safety and law. Traffic light is totally useless. Most of the drivers drive very aggressive. Believe it or not, this city is polluted with honk sound which is roughly at least 10 honks per minute.


There are tons of Factory Outlets in Jalan Dago (Dago Street). This is one of it. The price is quite cheap. I bought three good quality t-shirts from this shop with less than RM50.

Solar Eclipse 2009

I’m really disappointed. I already waited since 03.30pm at Syuen Hotel Ipoh just want to watch solar eclipse (the peak is around 04.30pm). Suddenly the sky turns very dark and cloudy around 04.00pm. I still wait patiently eventhough there is no hope to see the sun. Finally, I saw something interesting few minutes before the end of solar eclipse around 6.50pm. The rainbow something like aurora appeared from the edge of the cloud. The sun is right behind on that cloud. The rainbow is moving like a gas. I got a chance to take few photos and a video. At least I saw something interesting even with the bad weather. So, it’s worth for me to wait few hours. I hope you enjoy.


Close-up view of the aurora. It’s very colorful like a rainbow.

The Story:
About 4-5 years ago, the weird sky formation is really attracted me to take the photos of it. My actual mission on that day is to take the sunset photography, but the result is very disappointing. There is no beautiful sunset on that day. When I was on the way back home, I saw something that looked very attractive. The sky formation is a bit funny. I quickly took out my camera from my bag and snapped a few photos. Suddenly, I saw something came from the edge where the sun is set. The object is look very bright and floating toward the high altitude. It is not an aircraft for sure nor helicopter. Must be a lantern? I don’t think so, since lantern is in yelowish color and not pure white. After a while, the unidentified object is disappeared. In less than half and hour, the moon is set.

I’m not really sure what the thing is. I hope you guys can stand up your opinion about this phenomenon. Happy discussion!
