Good Bye SIEM REAP!

Assalamualaikum ...

Ive been three days in Siem Reap, Cambodia ...
I reach there at nite ...
And our free Pick Up service (tuk tuk) fetch us at the Bus Station ...
We used to travelled by Sorya Transport ...
Its the cheapest bus fare we found ...

Three days in Siem Reap doesn't attract me much ...
There are more than 100 guesthouse ...
and more hotels ... so as a traveller u may choose to stay
in a 5-star hotel or a small room that cost you 3 USD per night ...

Since I'm with my travel partner, we stayed in one room ...
15 USD per night includes breakfast ...
Nice stay but a lot of mosquitoes ...

Here, u can use ur USD to pay for anything ...
And all the price are standard ...
Mineral water (big) cost you 1 USD ...
Food (I ate Shrimp + Vege + Rice) cost you 1.25 usd - 1.5 usd ...
and its common to have a glass of shake here ...
It'll cost you 2500 Riel ... (1 USD - 4000 Riel) ...
Most of my time here, I stayed in hotel ...
I don't like the place that full of foreigner (even I'm the foreigner here) ...

Me and fadli, we tried to go the local mosque ...
its already one - two hours ... unluckily we can't found the mosque ...

The best thing about Siem Reap is the Angkor Wat ...
It cost you 20 USD for one day visit ...
however, If u love arts and would like to study more about Angkor Wat,
you may buy the 3-day pass for 40 USD and don't forget to hire a tour guide ...
There are thousands of watt to visit other than Angkor Wat ...
To me, i felt a little bit bored ...
Maybe because of I'm Muslim, I can't differentiate the different between
one and another watt ...
Same goes to non-Muslim I think ... U'll feel bored and can't differentiate when you see Masjidil Haram in Mecca and Masjid Kok Lanas in my hometown ...
However, when you know the story on each of the wat, its amazing you know!

From my hotel to the Angkor Watt, they will charge you with 15 USD for the whole trip ... if you request to travel for some more places, you will be charged ...

Besides Angkor Wat, you can visit the Tonle Sape Lake ...
It will cost you maybe 10 USD for the tuk-tuk and around <30 USD for the boat to
the floating village ... I don't go here ... independent traveller & money!

The other place that will attract you is Cultural Village ... it cost you 1 - 2 USD for the tuk-tuk and the other <12 USD for the entrance ... Fadli (my travel mate) went here! ...

Well, now I'm in Phnom Penh ... I travelled here by bus, It cost me 4 USD, its a 6 - 7 hours bus ... Here in Phnom Penh we stayed with one local ... his name is Lim Pisith.

Since I'm having an allergic with food + dust + hot in Siem Rieap ... its make me feel uncomfortable to travel ... :P

I'll continue writing later ... next post ... Phnom Penh!

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
