Night Flight to London

The night after Christmas, I was rushing from my home to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) (IATA: KUL, ICAO: WMKK) in Sepang, Malaysia to get a transit flight to Abu Dhabi International Airport with Airbus A340-600 by Etihad Airways. The long tiring journey from Kuala Lumpur to Abu Dhabi took about 7 hours 20 […]

The night after Christmas, I was rushing from my home to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) (IATA: KUL, ICAO: WMKK) in Sepang, Malaysia to get a transit flight to Abu Dhabi International Airport with Airbus A340-600 by Etihad Airways.

The long tiring journey from Kuala Lumpur to Abu Dhabi took about 7 hours 20 minutes. The distance between these two cities is about 5,612 kilometers. There is nothing to see through out the window except the dark starry sky. I have spent most of my free time watching movies and playing games using the media player provided inside the cabin.

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!

Ocean Park Hong Kong is the most famous theme park in Hong Kong. This place was opened since January 1977. The number of visitors is higher than Hong Kong Disneyland. It’s located in the Southern District of Hong Kong Island. Public can reach there by taxi or CityBus. The main mascot is sea lion named Whiskers (or known as Wai Wai in Chinese). There are so many side activities you can do in here, such as dining and shopping.

The Park opens at 10am and close at 6pm. The admission rates is HK$208 for adult and HK$103 for child.

I think it is enough with my short brief about Ocean Park. My conclusion, this is one of the places you must visit when you had a trip to Hong Kong. Have fun!

Shopping in Bandung

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.

Singapore is located in South East Asia. This country is the best modern country in South East Asia and one of the top in Asia. The public transport system is very well systematic and fully covered almost all the important locations. So, the travelers no need to spend much on renting a car. You can save your budget and cut the cost on transportation. The weather is very warm and high humidity. Just wear simple clothes will do. Another reminder, the peoples there are quite Kiasu. They are ego and un-friendly. I think its normall attitude for Island peoples. Hahaha, don’t blame on me about this ya. I just like to be honest. I think that’s all for my short brief. I hope you enjoy the photos that I took when I had a low-budget trip to Singapore.

Camera rolling! 3~ 2~ 1~. Action!

December 26, 2008 (07:05pm)
After 2 hours I reached Hong Kong, I spent my time hang around and relaxing at the Avenue of Stars which is not far from Harbour City and Star Ferry at Tsim Sha Tsui. While I hang around at Bruce Lee statue, suddenly I heard few peoples shouting very loud in Cantonese just few meters from me. After a while, they start punching on each others. At first, I thought it just a street show to create a gimmick to attract the tourists since it was happen just few meters from Bruce Lee statue. Amazingly, in less than 2 minutes, both of the bad guys get pinned down by the undercover cops. One of the cops is a pretty young girl who is wearing normal civilian clothes. Few minutes later, few security officers and cops came for backup and both of them finally get arrested. That time only I realize it is a real fight.
Too bad, I haven’t record the whole scene because I was too shocked. I only record after the fighting scene. I hope you enjoy the video.
