My Heart Speaks about Medan ... (2)

Assalamualaikum ...

Medan is a typical city ...
I dont explore the night life yet ...
Tune aku dan member tak sama ...
So, I try to approach him to go for good places like Bukit Bintang :p ...

Kalau di medan, the most attraction is Brastagi (2 - 3 hours from here) & Danau Toba (4 - 5 hours from here) ...
But then, me and friend doesnt do any reservation on hotel there ... bimbang takut tak ada accomodation ...since today, tomorrow and a day after is holiday ...
There will be so many peoples there ...
So, I planned to just stay at Medan ... and having fun with foods and shopping!
Even I dunt really like shopping much!

So far,
I have already try ...
1. Sate Padang
2. Esteler

The Food is ok! With a lil bit of spicy ... but I think the place here is not really so much expose of Indonesian culture like all the scene we saw on TV. Why?

1. Normally we heard 'abang' as 'mas' but here 'abang' still pronounce as 'abang'.
2. The food (most of the food) is closely to Malaysian food ...
3. The way they speak, thei slang, is closely to Malaysian ... even I think my friends in Sabah, who are Bugis speaks closely like we used to listen from radio/tv.

What else I can say?

1. This place is not recommended to those who like walking in order to explore the places ... Becak (beca bermotor) is recommended ... But beware k! If you don't want to ride it ... just ignore them ... don't smile and don't say a word ... they will approache you as much as possible ... just talk to the hand (means just say no!).
2. For the time being Im staying at Garuda Citra Hotel, which cost us around 260,000 rupiah per night including breakfast! So cheap kan? But then, like I told you earlier, since we changed our plan to stay in Medan only, we think that it is better to moved to another cheaper hotel ... Sri Deli Hotel, which is located infront of this hotel ... 145, 000 rupiah per night including breakfast! The room is of course equip with air conditioning and TV! So the rest of money we can use to shopping! Huhhhh ... bored!

Well, at the moment, I wish to come back here again and have time & preparation to Brastagi, Danau Toba and who knows I can travel all over Sumatera!

I think I should say that this trip is OK! Since both of us didn't prepare for anything! Hanya beli tiket flight jek ... kekangan waktu untuk exam dan assignments ...

Pictures?

I will upload once I reach my lovely country, Malaysia!

Since I changed the theme of trip to SHOPPING ... I won't state my details of expenses here! :P

Assalamualaikum ...

Patong Beach Phuket: Party Unlimited

I just comeback from Phuket last weekend. :)
It was awesome trip where I met few friends and enjoy the Loi Khratong & Full Moon Party!

Since it has been a very long time I didn't update my blog, so today Ill post about my recent trip: PHUKET!

15th November, 2013
Me and my travel buddy; Lanang took a bus from KL Sentral to KLIA via AirportCoach which cost us RM10.00. You have to know that the last trip from KL Sentral is at 1100 PM sharp. What if you can't manage to go to KLIA by bus? I mean you miss the bus? Well, just pay RM 35.00 for the KLIA Express.


Well, since we flew to Phuket on 16th November 2013 at 430 AM. We have ample of time to walk around at the KLIA and sleep! I prefer to sleep!

16th November 2013
Flight from KLIA departed around 430 AM and arrived at Phuket International Airport around 445 AM local time. Lucky our air carrier is MAS. Free beverage is compulsory for flight above 60 minutes!

From the Phuket International Airport we have to wait for few hours …

Marine Engineering Bridging Program

Assalamualaikum ...

DONE!
It would be the best word to describe when I'm done my 2-year training ...
2 years isn't easy path for me to walk through ...

Last week, I get back home after a few weeks struggle for my exams ...
Theory exam (Oral Exam) at MARDEP Port Kelang ...
MSCR exam (Marine Survical Craft & Rescue) at ALAM Melaka ...
and a few courses before and after the exams ...

Alhamdulillah ... I passed all the exams ...
Now, it is the time for me to apply for my CoC (Certificate of Competency) ...

2 years back ...
I remembered when one of the staff from my company said ...
'Your Degree is Useless ... You can burn it!'
Phewwww!
Just put yourself in my shoes ...
:p

When I was onboard ship ...
Some peoples discriminate me and my buddy ...
Just because we have a piece of paper ...
B.eng Mechanical is nothing to them ...
But then, its something to us ...

A few cadets argued about how much we earned per month ...
Nothing he shared with us ...
Help with hidden agenda ...
&
Worse to worse…

Terukir di Bintang!

Assalamualaikum ...

I just comeback to my hometown (Malaysia) since last fortnight ...
And Im so crazy about this song!

Jika engkau minta intan permata tak mungkin ku mampu
Tapi sayangkan ku capai bintang dari langit untukmu
Jika engkau minta satu dunia akan aku cuba
Ku hanya mampu jadi milikmu pastikan kau bahagia
Hati ini bukan milik ku lagi
Seribu tahun pun akan ku nanti
Kan… kamu…
Sayangku
Jangan kau persoalkan siapa di hatiku
Terukir di bintang tak mungkin hilang cintaku padamu
