Jalan Jalan ke Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (Hari ke 3)

December 30th, 2013 No comments

Daftar Tempat Wisata yang dikunjungi di hari kedua :

  • Genting Highland
  • Vihara Chin Swee
  • Genting Indoor Theme Park

Hari ini saya bangun jam 6 pagi. Rencana jalan-jalan hari ini adalah menghabiskan waktu seharian di Genting Highland. Sekitar jam 7 lebih, saya keluar hotel berjalan kaki menuju ke counter GO Genting yang ada di tempat perhentian bis. Sekedar informasi buat yang belum pernah ke Genting menggunakan bis. Kalau di brosur ataupun papan loket, ditulis bahwa bis berangkat setiap 1/2 jam dan bis paling pagi adalah jam 8 pagi. Kenyataannya tidak demikian. Bis yang berangkat ditentukan oleh pihak Go Gentingnya dan keberangkatannya bukan setiap 30 menit sekali. Tapi bisa 2 sampai 3 jam sekali. Waktu jalan-jalan ke KL pertama kali dulu, saya sampai menyewa taksi gara-gara terlalu siang saat hendak membeli tiket bis. Jadi saran saya belilah tiket sehari sebelumnya (kalau memang bisa) atau kalau tidak belilah terlebih dahulu sepagi mungkin di counter Go Genting ( Loket buka jam 07:00 pagi). Jika anda baru membeli sekitar jam 10-11, besar kemungkinan anda akan kehabisan tiket dan baru bisa berangkat ke Genting sekitar jam 2 lebih. Dan untuk tiket bis ini sendiri, jamnya adalah fix / ditetapkan terlebih dahulu waktu beli (seperti beli tiket bioskop). Jadi kita tidak bisa sesukanya berangkat dan pulang pada jam yang kita mau. Disarankan untuk membeli tiket PP (Pulang Pergi), karena kebanyakan tiket bis akan habis bila anda berencana untuk membeli pada saat pulang nanti.

Sebenarnya kemarin sore saya sudah ke loket pembelian tiket GO Genting, tapi menurut petugas yang menjual tiket, tiket bis Genting untuk besok hanya bisa dibeli hari itu juga (tidak bisa dibeli 1 hari sebelumnya). Tapi alangkah kagetnya saya setelah tahu bahwa tiket bis untuk berangkat hari ini yang pagi ternyata habis, dan tiket bis paling pagi yang tersedia adalah jam 11:30. Dan anehnya saat saya tanya ke petugas loketnya tiket besok bisa dibeli hari ini. Wah.. kok plin plan gini petugasnya. Kebetulan waktu itu ada orang Indonesia lain yang juga bernasib sama denganku. Kemarin dia juga mencoba membeli tiket untuk hari ini dan tidak bisa. Karena gak ada pilihan lain, saya pun akhirnya membeli paket Go Genting Express (Tiket PP bis dan cable car berangkat jam 11:30 dan pulang jam 8:30 malam serta tiket untuk main di Indoor Theme Park serta tiket masuk ke Snow World) seharga RM 60.

Daftar Tempat Wisata yang dikunjungi di hari kedua :

  • Batu Caves
  • Berjaya Times Square
  • Sungei Wang Plaza
  • Bukit Bintang Plaza
  • Alor Street

Rencana awal kami hari ini sebetulnya adalah menghabiskan waktu di Genting. Tapi mungkin karena terlalu capek gara-gara harus bangun subuh waktu berangkat ke Kuala Lumpur, kita sekeluarga banyak yang bangun kesiangan (termasuk saya). Pada akhirnya mau tidak mau kami harus mengubah rencana. Kami memutuskan untuk pergi ke Genting besok dan rencana hari ketiga kami majukan hari ini.

Pada akhirnya kami berangkat dari hotel jam 9:30 pagi. Sebelum mulai jalan-jalan, kami terlebih dahulu makan pagi. Karena bingung mencari makanan vegetarian, kami akhirnya makan di Gopala, sebuah depot vegetarian yang ada di dekat hotel. Awalnya saya sedikit menghindari restoran India, karena sebelumnya saya pernah 2x makan masakan India, dan rasanya benar-benar tidak cocok dengan lidah saya. Tapi daripada kita bingung mencari depot vegetarian lagi, pada akhirnya kami makan di depot tersebut. Read more…

Akhir tahun telah tiba. Tidak terasa 4 hari lagi tahun sudah berganti ke 2014. Dan musim liburan akhir tahun gini paling enak ya berlibur.Untuk liburan kali ini destinasi saya adalah Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Ini adalah kali kedua saya jalan-jalan di Kuala Lumpur. Kali ini saya pergi bersama keluarga saya. Kebetulan keluarga saya belum pernah ke Malaysia. Jadi ini adalah untuk pertama kalinya mereka pergi ke Malaysia. Sebetulnya di benak saya, kepergian ke Malaysia kali ini sedikit mengingatkan saya akan perjalanan pertama saya ke Malaysia dulu. Waktu itu saya pergi jalan-jalan bersama eks pacar saya sebelum saya berangkat ke Tianjin dalam perjalanan studi 1 tahun di China. Kedengarannya seperti sedih ya…. Tapi ini bukan waktunya untuk bergalau ria. Saya sudah memutuskan untuk move on sejak beberapa bulan yang lalu. So, it’s time to have fun, now…

Oke. Balik ke traveling kali ini. Untuk kesekian kalinya, kami mendapat tiket murah untuk perjalanan wisata kali ini. Biaya tiket pesawat PP (Pulang Pergi) Airasia dari Surabaya ke Malaysia di musim liburan ini hanyalah Rp. 500.000. Karena biaya tiket yang murah inilah, sebenarnya jam keberangkatan dan kepulangannya sedikit kurang nyaman. Tiket berangkat kami adalah tanggal 28 Desember 2013 jam 05:40. Jadi kami harus berangkat dari tempat menginap kami di Surabaya jam 4 pagi. Tapi, walaupun kita harus berangkat subuh, sebetulnya ini memberikan sedikit keuntungan. Karena kami bisa mempunyai lebih banyak waktu di Malaysia untuk jalan-jalan. Yang mungkin jadi masalah mungkin adalah tanggal dan jam pulangnya. Tiket kepulangan kami ke Indonesia adalah Tgl 1 Januari 2014, jam 7:40 pagi. Kepulangan pada tahun baru dengan jam begitu pagi membuat kami tidak bisa berpesta tahun baru semalam suntuk pada tanggal 31 Desembernya. Tapi walaupun demikian, menurut saya tiket yang begitu murah pada musim liburan seperti ini tetap terasa menyenangkan.

Why Not Try Something New on Your Next Winter Holiday?

January 18th, 2013 No comments

There’s more to winter holidays than just skiing and snowboarding. If you’re searching for this year’s break, why not consider something new? What about snowshoeing through the Dolomites or dog sledding in the Arctic Circle?

With the winter holiday season upon us, many people’s thoughts will be turning to skiing or snowboarding. However, if you do a bit of research, you’ll find there are more winter activities to enjoy than just these two. So, if you’re looking for something a little bit more adventurous then why not put on your snowshoes or hooks up the huskies and experience more remote areas?

Walking With a Difference

You might be surprised to learn that snowshoeing is actually the fastest growing winter sport. Not only is it fairly inexpensive compared with traditional winter sports, but it’s also relatively safe, with little chance of injury. If you’ve never been on a winter exodus before, then snowshoeing is easy to learn and you won’t have to have extensive lessons before you get an opportunity to head off. Read more…

World Joyland : Warcraft and Starcraft Theme Park in China

January 15th, 2013 1 comment

It’s really a good news for all Warcraft and Starcraft fans around the world. Just a couple months ago, the first amusement park created based on Warcraft and Starcraft has just opened last year to public in China. It’s World Joyland (Chinese : 嬉戏谷; pinyin : Xīxì Gǔ) that located in Changzhou, Jiangsu province. It’s just about two hours away from Shanghai if you go by train and bus. The park was built spread over 600,000 square meters and it’s cost about 200 million yuan (about $30 million USD). The park itself divided into five sections. Too bad, this is not official theme park of Warcraft and Starcraft, because the park was built without the use of the original name of the Blizzard. It’s mean that the park owners doesn’t need to pay a license to Blizzard. Starcraft section in this park has been renamed as Universe of Starship, while Warcraft section has been renamed as Terrain of Magic.

This day was our last day of our trip to Singapore. We didn’t feel that it’s already the last day, because it’s so much fun to stroll in Singapore. Because i already took my family to all of main tourist destination in Singapore, i decide to make this day as a free day for all of us to go to place we haven’t satisfied to go during our trip. Meanwhile, i chose to take a walk by myself to discover some place that i never go before. In the morning, we had breakfast together at the food stall near hotel. And then we were separated into 2 group. The first group is contain only me and my mother, while the rest is in another group. I and my mother decide to go to Singapore Botanic Garden, while the other group decide to go shopping in Orchard. We separated at Lavender MRT Station and agreed to meet each other for lunch at Takashimaya in Orchard Road.

A Happy Trip to Singapore (Day 6) : Singapore Zoo and Clarke Quay

List of tourist attraction visited today :

  • Singapore Zoo
  • Chinese Garden
  • Clarke Quay 

It’s already 5 days passed in Singapore. We already visited almost all the main tourist destination in Singapore. After spent the whole day at Universal Studio of Singapore yesterday, now it’s our time to visited Singapore Zoo, the most visited place of interest in Singapore based on Straight Times (Singapore local newspaper) in 2009. Actually, i plan to go to Singapore Botanic Garden first before heading to Singapore Zoo. But i was afraid we would not have enough time to visit all of place in that day, because we still have to visit my childhood friend, Cynthia who live in Singapore. We were out of the hotel earlier that day. Because we were a little saturated with the food at the food stall in front of our hotel, so that day we decided to eat at another place. Based on what i searched earlier on the internet, we went to Aljunied MRT Station. There were 2 vegetarian restaurant there. We took the bus at the bus stop we usually get off (Yi Xiu Fty Bldg). It need only 2 bus stop to arrive at Aljunied MRT Station. We finally found the vegetarian restaurant, it’s called Ci Hang Vegetarian Fast Food. But it’s still closed that time. There was a paper in the door said that it will open at 10:00. Because it’s already 09:45 that time, we decided to wait. Fortunately, the owner of the restaurant know that we were waiting outside, so she let us to came in before 10:00.

A Happy Trip to Singapore (Day 5) : Have Fun All Day in Universal Studios

October 16th, 2012 2 comments

This was the day that we have long been waiting for. No doubt, Universal Studio was the most exciting place we visited in our 7 days trip. For me, visiting Universal Studio is the thing must to do if you go to Singapore, especially if you are teenager who love to play in amusement park. Because Universal Studio Singapore open 10:00 everyday, so we got out from hotel around 9 o’clock. Like usual, we had breakfast at the food stall near the hotel. We took the same bus like yesterday (double decker bus no 80) from Opp Mohd Salleh Mque bus stop directly to Vivo City. One again, we sit on the upper level of the bus to enjoy the view of Singapore. After arrived at Vivo City, we directly went to 3rd floor where Sentosa Station was located. We took the Sentosa Express to go to Universal Studio. After got down at the first station (Waterfront), we finally arrived at Universal Studio area. The day was quite sunny, so it’s a perfect time to play all day in this park.

A Happy Trip to Singapore (Day 4) : Vivo City, Harbourfront and Sentosa Island

October 11th, 2012 No comments

List of tourist attraction visited today :

  • Vivo City
  • HarbourtFront
  • Sentosa Island

After visited a lot of place in the second day and the third day, we spent the fourth day by playing in Sentosa Island. Because some of us were very tired because of the trip yesterday, i decided to got out from the hotel a little bit late again. We departed from the hotel around 11 o’clock. Like usual, we had a breakfast in the food stall near the hotel. After had breakfast, we departed to Vivo City by Bus. From the bus stop near the hotel (Opp Mohd Salleh Mque), we took bus no 80. The bus directly headed to Vivo City. We took the double decker bus, and my nephew seems very happy that time. Because since the second day, he always asked to ride the double decker bus. The distance between Geylang area to Vivo City is quite far. It need about 30 minutes of trip. Ride a double decker bus in Singapore was quite fun. It’s more like a city sightseeing tour if we sit on the upper level of the bus.

We start our trip on the third day a little bit late. I already estimated that this day would be a grueling trip, because we have a lot of place to visit and some of my family members had never traveling before. Like the previous day, we have  breakfast at 10 o’clock in the food stall near the hotel. After having breakfast, we go back to the hotel. We departed from our hotel around 12 o’clock in the afternoon. We use the bus to go to nearest MRT station (Lavender). Our first destination for that day is Orchard Road, the busiest shopping area in Singapore. We already went to Orchard Road on the first day. But we didn’t do anything at that day, because we were searching for food and almost all shops already closed that time.
