Travel Preparation

Salam semua.

Hari ni nak kongsi sikit tips persiapan sebelum/semasa berjalan di luar negara agak menjadi panduan kepada traveller semua, especially jika berjalan lama macam seminggu atau lebih.

1. Pakaian

Sila bawa pakaian yang mencukupi dan bersesuaian dengan cuaca di destinasi anda. Sila buat kajian sikit sebelum bertolak. Cuaca macam mana, suhu dan musim apa. Kalau musim sejuk tu, atau suhu belas2 darjah Celcius, silalah bawa jaket atau sweater yang bersesuaian. Kalau forecast kata hujan, bawalah payung atau baju hujan. Jangan melenggang jalan-jalan pakai seluar pendek pulak. Pastu komplen sejuk. Kalau rasa diri tu solat, pakai seluar panjang siap-siap atau bawak kain ke. Siap nak kena pinjam seluar kawan untuk solat dah kenapa kan...

2. Makanan

Bekalan makanan yang mencukupi pun agak penting lagi-lagi bagi sesiapa yang tak into makanan asing. Maklumlah ada orang tekak Melayu je, tak boleh makan makanan pelik-pelik sikit. Bawalah roti sikit, Brahims ke kan. At least boleh cover sikit kelaparan masa bersiar-siar tu. Pastu kalau hari-hari nak makan nasi briyani kat oversea tu memang tak la, sepinggan dalam RM30 camtu. Kalau sehari 2x makan selama seminggu, dah berapa kos tu? Oleh sebab travel ni memakan tenaga yang banyak, maka eloklah makan sarapan walaupun sedikit. Jangan cakap "aku kan biasa tak breakfast", lepas tu kau sendiri yang komplen pening-pening kepala lepas berjalan selama beberapa jam. Sila makan penumbuk.

3. Daypack

Daypack tu apa? Beg untuk dibawa semasa tour, tak kisahlah backpack ke, rucksack mahupun sling bag. Untuk apa? Untuk memudahkan diri sendiri mengisi barang keperluan seperti botol air, dokumen penting, isi jaket kalau tak pakai, letak payung ataupun isi barang shopping. So, tak perlulah menyusahkan orang lain dengan menumpang barang kau, sedangkan diri kau lenggang kangkung jalan dengan amannya. Sakit bahu kawan kau bawa barang lebih muatan tu.

4. Planning

Tolong plan. Kalau travel backpacking tu, kau jangan join menadah je. Sila tolong study sama-sama seperti plan route perjalanan, check tempat menarik, berapa tambang subway, kat mana nak shopping souvenir murah dan lain-lain. Kalau sekadar ikut then buat orang lain rasa annoying, silalah beli ticket balik awal. Tak payah join pun takpe. Kadang-kadang malam balik bilik, kitorang busy plan nak pergi mana esok, kau buat-buat tak tahu duduk sibuk susun souvenir dan ambil gambar hasil borongan hari itu.

5. Baggage Allowance

Sila add-on luggage allowance kalau rasa diri tu shopping banyak. Jangan hanya reti menumpang je. Kawan tu bayar untuk barang sendiri, bukan barang kau. Banyak option dan berat luggage yang ada, pilih sahaja yang mana berkenan. Kalau backpack tu, boleh je bawak beg lipat masuk dalam backpack tu, masa nak balik packing baru keluarkan beg tu. Tak susah pun.

6. Penginapan

Selalu kitorang pilih hotel bajet atau hostel je. Iyalah sebab nak guna untuk tidur malam je, tak payah mahal sangat kot penginapan. Dah nama pun hotel bajet, banyak la benda kena add-on kan, contohnya towel dan toiletries. Haaa, bawaklah towel sendiri ataupun towel nipis yang untuk travel tu. Tak payah la bazir duit beli towel mahal kat situ. Sekarang dah malas nak tidur hostel campur orang, prefer private room. Untuk keselamatan satu, dan ada privasi sikit. Kalau ada attached bathroom lagi bagus.

Eh, emo sikit masa tulis entri ni. Harap semua faham ye.

Legoland the 6th (+Waterpark)

Hello all,

It has been a while.

So let's update about my recent trip to Legoland and Singapore. In this post, I'm gonna write about Legoland first, and then Singapore trip in the following post. Like the title said, this was my 6th time to Legoland Malaysia. Maklumlah dulu kerja kat Johor Bahru, buat Annual Pass. Kui3.. There are a few additions in the park which we did not miss the chance to try them.

More info on Legoland please visit their official site here.

One day combo ticket (There park & waterpark) costs RM184 (Adult) & RM146 (Children). Save a lot when purchasing combo ticket!

Legoland Waterpark

Since the weather was kinda gloomy, the ticketing staff suggested us to go to waterpark first because if it rains, the waterpark will be closed. Okay we got it, so we went to the waterpark, get changed and ran into the pool. We tried all the slides which included family raft, body slides and tube slides. We managed to grab a few tubes and floated around the waterpark. The tubes were provided for free, no need to bring extra cash for tube rental. After we played all the slides, we headed for the theme park.

Miniland - Star Wars

A new section was opened which displays a lot of Lego diorama from Star Wars trilogy. At the entrance, we were served with 1:1 scale Darth Vader, R2-D2 and C-3PO figures. Inside the building, the Lego sets were displayed in various rooms which we truly enjoyed along the way. There are buttons which we could push and the Lego figures will move.


Ninjago is the latest addition in this park. It's a very interactive game where we sat on a moving 4-seater cart and performed hand gestures to attack the villains. Oh ya, it's a 3D rides, so we had to wear the 3D glasses provided. Each of us represent one character. It was a nice game, we really loved it! However, please be prepared because your arms will ache after the rides, depending on how rough you play it. Hahaha..

We also played the dragon roller coaster (both kids and adults coasters), pharaoh's ride (tembak2) and watched the 4D show. Since we came on a normal weekday, the queue was short and super quick. 

Ok malas nak tulis panjang, info about other rides can be found on my previous entries (label: Legoland)

Have a great weekend!

Merdeka Trip - Manjung & Lumut

Trip Highlight: Frenzy Waterpark

Assalamualaikum peeps,

This was our very first trip for our Geng Memakans, we're very excited about this trip! We had planned it a few weeks before, but the plan was getting more serious a week before the trip. We just had to reconfirm how many people would join us. Since Merdeka day break fell on Wednesday (in the middle of the week), so I decided not to go back to Shah Alam but joined this trip to Manjung instead. From Sungai Besar, it took us around one and a half hour to reach Manjung. I went with Salim while Kak Emmy with her hubby. We checked-in the hotel first before going out again for dinner.

Dinner @Horizon Garden, Seri Manjung

We had an awesome dinner here. Kakmin had made reservation at Horizon Garden. She ordered a lot of yummy dishes such as nyonya steamed fish, butter prawn, battered cuttlefish, tomyam, veggies and tofu. The tomyam was a bit spicy but I loved it! All the food was nice, but the service was kinda awkward. The waitress collected our plates so soon, right after we finished our food on the plates. Did they not think about the remaining dishes? Takkan nak ratah pakai senduk? Tak sabar2 ok. =/
Kakmin brought her hubby (Abg Wan) and brother (Idey) as well. First time meeting them, initially we're quite quite, then it was fine.

Marina Island

We spent the rest of our night here until midnight. We had a little farewell party for Azira who will continue her study for a year. We sat on the grass near the jetty and had cakes barehanded. Forgot to bring any plates or spoons. We just came and brought a cake and some presents for her. Salim and I lured Abg Wan to play Pokemon Go together. We're quite happy that night. At least our Pokedex entry had increased by a few Pokemon. Lol.

Then we rode the bulat2 thingy, not sure what it is called. RM10 for 5 minutes. Worth a try. Then Kakmin bid goodbye as Abg Wan had oncall tomorrow morning. The rest remained here until 12am to watch fireworks. Exactly 12am, the fireworks burst in the air, colouring the dark sky with sparkles and lights. Then we proudly sang our national anthem, Negaraku. Then, we made a quick round around the stalls and booths, bought some drinks before headed back to our car.

Farewell to Rara

Bulat-bulat thingy

were actually busy playing Pokemon Go

Star Bay Hotel

A budget hotel, it was actually very nice and comfortable. We stayed in a twin bed room (RM88 per night) and I personally thought it was worth it. The location is very strategic, not far from Marina Island.

Breakfast @Warung Roti Canai Tepi Sungai, Kampung Sitiawan

In the morning, we had breakfast at Kampung Sitiawan. The place is called Warung Roti Canai Tepi Sungai. It is located around 10 minutes from our hotel. After we parked our cars, we had a walk along the riverside before reaching the roti canai place. We ordered 10 pieces of roti canai and then waited for Azira to arrived. Then, the makcik roti canai got a little bit emo after we ordered additional air kosong. She said "kenapa tadi tak order sekali tadi dik?"

Roti canai RM1.20

Frenzy Waterpark

After had the roti canai, we continued our journey to Marina Island. This time to Frenzy Waterpark. It's a waterpark very much like Wipe-out TV game show, only it was less extreme. It's a huge air-filled balloon walkways equipped with several obstacles and challenges. At first we thought that this place was quite small, but later after spending almost two hours in the park we started to feel the pain. Most of us had body ache and muscle sores. Muahahaha, rasakan lorrr~ The entrance fee is RM20 per adult and there is two session each day (8.30 am - 12.30 pm and 3.30 pm - 5.30 pm). It was definitely worth a try. I passed most of the obstacles except for two or three of them. I failed monkey bars and also the bridge. Biasalah gemuk sikit memang susah nak lepas. Not sure how many time I fell into the water and the rest had to help pulling me up. 😂

Lunch @Papparich 

We made a quick stop at Kakmin's house and bid farewell to Azira. After performing our prayer here, we drove to Papparich near Aeon Seri Manjung to have lunch. As usual, chicken and prawn hor fun (kway teow soup) was my choice for today. I managed to caught a few Pokemon here including Pikachu at the Shell petrol station.

Aeon Seri Manjung

Our initial plan was to play bowling or to watch movie here. However, after finishing our energy at the Frenzy Waterpark this morning, we had no mood to play bowling anymore. We surveyed some shows at TGV Cinema but the showtimes also weren't very suitable for us. At last, we just wandered around the mall, bought some stuff from Kaison and I bought a pair of Crocs for my niece, Zara. It was on sale, RM59 for each pair (all designs and sizes).

Kaison, probably the best and affordable shop that we love!

Wan's Coconut Shake

We continued our journey to Lumut Waterfront but since the weather was gloomy and rain started to pour down we just drove through the area only. After that, we drove back to Marina Island and dropped by Wan's Coconut Shake. This was our last stop before going back to Sungai Besar later. The coconut shake was okay, some of us ordered fresh coconut drink as well. After quenching our thirst, we said goodbye to Kakmin and Idey before we drove back to Sungai Besar.

Before reaching home, we had dinner at Medan Ikan Bakar Hutan Melintang. Not sure why the service was kinda slow tonight, we had our food served after almost one hour of waiting.

After I dropped Salim in Bagan Terap, I drove back to Sungai Besar and dropped by the police station to fetch a tray of brownies for Kakmin. 

I loved how we spent our quality time together. All this while we only spent time at work during the day and occasionally dined out together after work. This time, we had more activities that we actually could do together. We had laugh and joy and body aches. Lol

Good night~
