Kuala Lumpur - China, Financing Your Trip!

Assalamualaikum ...

When we told our friends that we are about to travel, we were labeled as a RICH!
But then, how many of you notice that with the cost of less than 20 USD per day, you can afford yourself with a nice accomodation and food when you are travelling?

I love travelling and infact I have a very less experiences about backpacking. A few years back, I have been travelling to Medan, Indonesia, Cambodia + Vietnam and Manila, Phillipines. With these backpacking experiences, I would like to share with you on how I fund my backpacking trips and how I manage the money!

Getting fund: there isn't an easy way to fund your trips without saving! Everymonth, there are thousand of bills to settle with; ASTRO, CELCOM, MAXIS, DIGI, TNB, House Rent, Car, SYABAS and more more more ...

From my previous post, I did mention taht travelling is all about passion, when you have planned yourself to travel, you will put aside your money for this.

Let me take and example of my Cambodia + Vietnam & Manila trips last year.For your information, I spend almost RM3000 for these trips. Every month, I put aside RM300 for this 'project' for almost 10 months! Well, I have to put one more definition about travelling: passion & determination! Through high determination, Insyaallah, you will istiqamah in keeping aside your RM300 a month for 10 months! (I'm not talking about how you manage our pay wisely here, you may refer this to AKPK!)

Managing your fund: this will be the most difficult part compared to get your fund!
When we have some amount of money, we tend to use it without first think either it is
our priority or not! (keperluan atau kemahuan)

My definition about travelling is; we travel out of our hometown with limited budget and enjoy the life there! and its a big No-No for shopping!

Let me share my experience when I was travel to Chambodia + Vietnam & Manila!
Well, total expenses for that trip is RM 3000 or 1000 USD, the rough details as below:
Flight ticket: Kuala Lumpur - Ho Chi Minh - Kuala Lumpur & Kuala Lumpur - Manila - Kuala Lumpur RM1050 (extra almost 15 USD for airport tax in Manila)
Accomodation & Food: Cambodia + Vietnam 250 USD & Manila 250 USD
Misc: RM 405
Duration of stay: 10 Days in Cambodia + Vietnam & 10 Days in Manila ...

Travelling is the cheapest vacation to see the world! Why pay more?

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
