我们一起旅行

May 19, 2011

这是我的第二次,他的第一次到台湾游玩。
此次,我们到了台中-新社、南投-九族和日月潭、花莲-太鲁阁、台北-野柳/九份/金瓜石、台北市、新北投、淡水等等。

第一次,我跟着旅行团,一切都已安排妥当。
跳上巴士,跟着走就是了。

这次,是我们策划的旅行。
上网找资料、询问网友的意见、参考他人的行程等。
真是多谢背包友的建议和支持,这次的旅程才能顺利完成。
完善的网上资料更是让我们事半功倍。

在这里的记忆都是美好的。
我们遇上了友善的巴士司机,热情的民宿负责人。
我们品尝了可口的地道美食,也欣赏到了美丽的风景。
宜人的天气,让我们可以走再多的路也不会汗流浃背。
盛开的花卉,让我们能在花海中慢步,感受鸟语花香。

背包旅行,就是自己背着包包到处走。
水陆空,乘搭了各种各样的交通工具。
当然,少不了我们最主要的双腿。
我们的确走了很多很多路,很累却很开心。
几天走的路,比一个月走的好多吧~
有时候,走到脚很酸时,两个懒人就会找地方歇歇。
休息了一会儿,又可以继续走下去。
看到美丽的风景建筑,是对我们的一大奖励吧~
精神一振,又可以再往下走。
累,可是觉得是值得的。

再来就是能有机会好好和他相处。
在这11天里,我们有彼此的陪伴。
两人一起迷路(常常的事)。
两人一起吃喝玩乐。
两人一起商量(或闹闹)。
虽然,两人的合照少得很,可是…
他的陪伴让我的旅程不寂寞,也更有意义。
希望,未来的路上我们都能相互支持。
两人的步伐,也许还是有点差异,
耐心点,让对方的脚步可以追上,
互补不足,走起来才可以不太吃力。

猫城之旅 – 古晋 Kuching Trip Day 1

February 5, 2011

My kuching trip was my 1st vacation in 2011.
Well, we had managed to book the AirAsia free tickets during sometime back and the tickets were dirt cheap:P
To-and-fro (and luggage for one way) for only RM60 (2 pax).
So, grab the free tickets whenever you manage to, and it will really save you a bundle of $$$.

Since there were 4 of us, we decided to rent a car (wira 1.5, manual).
The best offer we managed to get was RM100 per day (min 3 days rental).
By the way, the public transport in Kuching is simply hopeless.
Even at the tourism board’s counter, the brouchure already printed the bus service in Kuching is much unreliable and inconsistent. So, don’t bother wait for the bus. It’s more feasible to go around the town/off-town with a car.

1st destination = lunch @ Mdm Tang’s.
In KL, you have Madam Kwan’s. Here, in Sarawak, they have Madam Tang’s.
Not to miss some local delicacies like Sarawak Laksa, Kolo Mee, and etc. which are highly recommended by everyone. Yummy~and satisfying (partly because we were so hungry that time)

Kolo Mee


Sarawak Laksa

It was near to 2pm. Time to check-in to our hotel. We had booked 360 Xpress Hotel with only RM96 per night per room. Quite a nice bargain. A little bit of problems while checking-in….I wasnt sure whether their system confused our bookings with others, or they had over-booked their rooms. Well, not my problem. I just want my room to be ready. That’s all. Finally, we managed to get our rooms and moved on to next destination.

Next destination = Sarawak Museum.
Well, you will not find the exact words “Sarawak Museum”. If u see the signboard “Jabatan Muzium Sarawak”, which means you are there. So, no worries. We were kinda lost during that time. So, we decided to ask the staff at the Dewan Tun Abdul Razak (part of the Jabatan Muzium Sarawak). This friendly fella told us,”Hei…you are here dah~Here is the Sarawak Museum. There are old and new wings, neh…the bridge there, can go over to old wing…. blah blah blah……”.

Most of the tourist attractions close quite early in Kuching. So, if it’s stated 430pm, then around 415pm probably they will be prepared to close. So, make sure you reach the place at least 45 minutes before the closure time. Else, the staffs will tell you….”see ya tomorrow…..”.But one thing that’s good about Kuching’s museums/tourist attractions….THEY ARE FREE…..these days, where can you find so much of free tourist spots? So, take a visit to these places,since they are all free…

We only managed to go into the new exhibition hall (quite interesting walk) and old wing (surprisingly, it amazed me….though the maintenance is bit…hrm…..who cares? it’s free, so don’t complaint).
Later, still raining, we took pictures outside the museums.

Next next destination = Tua Pek Gong Temple.
With the help of GPS, we managed to find it. It’s situated in the middle of the town.
Rainy day…and it was a wet wet day. Quite difficult for us to take picture/walk around.
Nothing much could be done, just walked around the temple, took some pictures, and went to Indian Street.
And again, most of the shops already closed. It was merely 6pm.
Not much shops left open. It was so quiet on the street. oh…..sienZzzzz
How to shop ar??? So, please be reminded to be there before 5pm. Later than that, try your luck~
Nevertheless, even with most shops closed, yet we still can shop.

Tua Pek Gong Temple


Hungry……time for dinner…..
We had our seafood dinner @ TopSpot. A famous place to have seafood dishes.
Our delicious meal – Sambal Belacan Midin, Fried Sotong, Crabs, Teoh Chew Steamed Fish, Garlic Butter Prawn & Curry Bamboo Shell (not sure if I named it correctly). Basically, we ordered 6 dishes, and tasted very very nice oh~~~~~~~Total spending was approximately RM 117.00.
The name of this superb restaurant = Ling Loong Seafood~~~~~YUMMY~~~~~~^^

Seafood Dinner

After dinner, time to get some rest….it had been a long day~
We went back to hotel, and prepared for the 2nd day~

*end of 1st day*

My September

October 3, 2010

September had been an eventful month for me with good and bad things.
Long leave with some travelling – cuti cuti Malaysia, followed by sickness…:P

The story began….with forced leave by our company. Since we’re 1Malaysia, we all gonna on leave & celebrate raya.
From 9/9/10 till 19/9/10 = 11 days off. (forced leave = 4 days)
Long holiday without long vacation plan, which was rare. So, first few days, I had been resting at home.
It was such a precious moment and felt like heavan & tasted much like long-time-ago semester break.
Peace of mind with no phone call from office (since everyone was on leave).
I slept late, and woke up late…(nothing to be proud of) but I enjoyed it so much…..

On Sunday, we had family trip to Melaka – 2D1N trip.
We stayed in Hallmark Hotel, which located quite strategically, around 5-10min walk to Jonker.
All things were good except for the breakfast provided..
It was really really bad, and seriously you wont want to eat them.
Melaka is a good place to shop and of course eat:)
We had nyonya laksa, rojak, mee siam, cendol, ABC, dim-sum and other food.
And I had finally bought the kebaya:) fruitful trip indeed……

Tuesday & Wednesday rested at home, and Thursday continued my 2nd trip – Ipoh and Penang…
Main objective – attend wedding dinner.
Secondary objective – eat eat eat
Actually, there wasn’t much time for us to eat around. Still, we had tried few Ipoh delicacies.
Overall, the food tasted as expected, 2 thumbs up~~~
Too bad we had limited time with limited space (stomach couldn’t fit in anymore).

One night in Ipoh and we moved north to Penang.
We reached Penang around 2pm, and went round to search for our hotel.
Took for granted it was sooooo easy to find, and ended up went round the city to look for the hotel.
Luckily, we still managed to locate our hotel:)

Tunes Hotel – 5 star bed at 1 star price.
Yes…..it’s true.
The bed was really soft and nice.but don’t expect anything fancy there.
We had learned a lesson there…no free lunch….everything came with a price.
Air-condition, hair-dryer, entertainment (tv), towels, early check-in or late check out, etc.

Friday evening, we went to the wedding dinner at Cititel Penang.
It was one of the best wedding meals I had tasted.
Crazy friends and entertaining singers, an enjoyable evening.

On Saturday morning, we ate dim sum for breakfast. Then went to Kek Lok Si to walk walk, and on the way down, we had our asam laksa.

Not much time for us to taste all the famous Penang food, we’ll keep others for next trip.

Around 145pm, we left Penang…We’ll be back……

Stopped by Ipoh again to pick up our salted chickens to bring back to Seremban.
We at 1st wanted to drink some white coffee before continue our way home.
Too bad, the time was bit odd, and lot of the shops had closed.
In the end, we went to Onn Kei for Hor Fun + Bean Sprouts Chicken.
Yummy~~~juicy chicken + tasty bean sprouts…..

Finally, we gonna go home.
Tired (especially kcy…..) but satisfied^^
We had our missions accomplished with no regret.
And so, we went back to Seremban……and started to fall sick after back from the trip.

Sunday evening, another wedding dinner @ Nilai.

Next weekend, went to Singapore to visit kcy……
It was a lazy weekend. Went normal grocery shopping and played masak-masak (cooking) at home.

End of September.

This weekend, starting of Oct….Nothing much.
Back home – normal routine – eat, sleep, eat, go out walk walk, eat again, nap nap, eat, sleep.

欧洲之旅

July 9, 2010

不知不觉,旅行回来也有一个月了。

旅程简介
上个月7号,飞往伦敦,转机到苏格兰。
在苏格兰大概3天,搭火车回到伦敦三天两夜。
12号-19号,参加旅行团(Cosmos),到荷兰、德国、瑞士和法国。
19号傍晚,回到伦敦。
20号飞机,回家咯~

7/6 – 在飞往伦敦的13小时中,旁边的宝宝闹足了13小时。
他都不要睡觉,一直要妈妈陪他玩。
妈妈,真伟大。而我,也因此和熊猫结拜,成为熊猫一族。
时差大概8小时。
已经累到没力,
时差不时差,对我没差。
8/6,准备出发。
一整天都在下毛毛雨。
这是一场长命雨,一直绵绵不断。
还是拍了不少照片。
9/6,搭火车前往爱丁堡。
可好笑的是,上错火车。
应该说,上错火车公司了。
目的地还是到达,只是过程有点曲折。
幸好检票员“放水”,谢谢好心的你。
我们不至于要花一笔钱,重新买票。
10/6,前往伦敦。
逗留两晚,去了几个名胜地。
12/6,拖着行李去指定地点会合- 参加当地旅行团。
傍晚/晚上时分抵达Amsterdam的酒店。
13/6 – 游船河。下午时间,自己逛。
14/6 – 去荷兰村,看风车和看木鞋制造过程。傍晚时,抵达德国。
15/6 – 又是游船河。这一次,游得太久,闷得有点想睡。
傍晚抵达瑞士的酒店,就在美丽的湖的对面。
16/6 – 看看著名的地标,接着又是自由活动时间。
17/6 – 往巴黎方向出发。非常塞车。15分钟的路程,成了40-50分钟。
晚上,乘搭法国的地铁,去了巴黎塔。美丽的夜景。
18/6 – 参观一座城堡/宫殿。富丽堂皇的装潢。
下午,自由活动时间。去了罗浮宫。很大很大,一天根本走不完,看不完。
19/6 – 回去啦~回到伦敦。
20/6 – 上飞机,回家了。

有几个感想:
最干净的国家 – 瑞士。
我们去了Lake Lucerne。
环境优美,有山有水,山明水秀。
有着不怕人的鸭子在湖里戏水找吃。
还有会潜水的鸭子呢~

有点乱乱的,是巴黎。
火车上,四处都可以看见垃圾。
火车里布满乘客的艺术作品(涂鸦)。
自由得有点混乱,没啥次序。

传说中有点冷酷的德国人,
其实还蛮不错。
遇到的,得还蛮礼貌和乐于助人。
也许,他们看起来不是那么热情,
可是,不要被外表给误导了。

而荷兰呢…在她的运河乘船。
经过了很多很多的桥。
看到船屋,好像蛮有趣的。
去到那里,停到那里。
看到她著名的风车和木鞋。
蓝蓝的天,青青的草原。
想起这句话….
天苍苍,野茫茫。
风吹草低见牛羊。

英国,一个摩登与古老的混合体。
一旁可以是古色古香的建筑,
另边则是摩登大厦。
两者之间,奇妙的搭配,又可共存。
旧而不残的火车和充满历史痕迹的火车站,
持续不断承载旅客和上班族。

欧洲,有很多很多的教堂。
精致的雕刻和讲究的摆设,
有的饱受战火蹂躏后,幸存。
经过多年风雨依然屹立不倒。

除了教堂,有很多的城堡。
而这些城堡里没有白马王子,也没有睡美人。
剩下的是说不完的故事。它们是历史的见证。
每一个角落,都有属于自己的故事。
也许是惨无人道的悲剧,或者是浪漫美丽的爱情。

这些城堡,都曾经有过光辉灿烂的日子。
昂贵华丽的装潢和家私,想像那种奢侈的生活。
朱门酒肉臭,路有冻死骨。
城堡里极端的享受,而外面的就在为每餐而苦干。
难怪当中有的被人民推翻,有的渐渐坐吃山空。

另外发觉到,四处都是烟民。
躲避他们根本就是不可能的事。
咖啡,也是他们的文化之一吧。
到处,都是咖啡厅或是辛巴克之类的店。
他们很悠闲地坐着享受咖啡。

再来,就是溜狗。
上街买东西、搭火车或散步跑步,
他们都坚信狗是人类最好的伙伴。
可爱的小狗或者是比人还高大的狗狗,
随街都可以瞧见。
有些主人任由自己的狗仔四处留金,
所以必须小心看路,别踩到”黄金”。

隧道,遍布这些国家。
我们经过了数不清的隧道。
有漫长的隧道,也有短距离的隧道。
有些干净利落,有的布满涂鸦。
这些隧道成了他们不可少的通道。

14 天,花相当多时间在交通工具里。
沿路看风景,将每个美丽的景色摆在记忆里。
有些东西,相机没法捕捉到。
它们是你当时的感觉和感想。
一望无际的平原,绿油油的草原。
美丽的雪山和清澈见底的湖水。

和家人之间的互动和欢乐,都是难忘的。
老爸爱拿着相机四拍照留念。
老妈爱四处逛街买巧克力饼干。
小姨爱到处逛看看东西拍拍照。
小弟爱回到酒店里听歌看书(很奇怪对不对?)
我爱拍照,四处逛,看看俊男。
老弟呢,多数地方他已经去过了。
比较像陪客和半个导游啦。

花费嘛~~~大概一人8至9千,看你有没有血拼咯~
省省用,省省吃(吃了无数的面包三文治和西餐)。
才14天,已经开始想念nasi lemak和云吞面。
老弟, 你是怎么忍受一年没有这些食物,佩服啊~
奇怪是,吃了无数高热能的食物,竟然没有变肥,哈哈。
也许是走太多路,爬上爬下的,走来走去的。
加上天气冷冷的,消耗能量高吧~

天气,不吹风还好。
一吹风,不得了。
冷得我们抖抖抖。
不过,我还是喜欢冷天多于热天。
一下雨,就是一天绵绵不断的。
毛毛雨,真的很细很细。
不撑伞,也不会变落汤鸡。
只会有点湿湿水水而已。
由于已经渐渐进入夏天,
日长夜短,早上4点左右已经天亮。
晚上8-9点,还是亮亮的,
刚开始,难以相信已经那么迟。
夜景,要等到10-11点才能看到。
