Bangkok 2012: Arriving Bangkok & First Day in Bangkok

I dont have  a lot of pictures to snap in Bangkok. Most of the time, I rely on my friend's mobile phone.
Mine is full! Its time to get a new memory card for my phone.

We arrived in Bangkok around 1200 hrs. First thing we did was, looking for a muslim food!
For your information, muslim food in Bangkok is not so difficult to get. As long as you are willing to ask people, try to discover yourself and use your sixth sense you will be able to find it! Haha!

In the Hua Lamphong Train Station (Central Train Station in Bangkok), there is a huge food court. You may get a Halal food in one of the booth. Besides, you will find a place called "TEMPAT SEMBAHYANG" or prayer area for Muslim!

Just ask the tourist officer around here, they are willing to help with no charge!

Well, since Ive been here last year during flooding, I know another one place which is located in front of the Hua Lamphong  Train Station. The owner can speak in Thai-Malay Golok Style (sort of Oppa Gangnam Style). Since we were too hungry, we choose to eat Omellete (Telur Dadar),Chicken Green Curry, Soup (beef), Chicken (I dont know the name) and some ulam. He charged us 130 Baht! Cheap!

How to get here?
Just walk through the main exit of the Central Train Station Hua Lamphong you will see a 7-Eleven and Hong Kong Noodles. Next to the Hong Kong Noodles there is a way to the MRT station. Walk the other way, you will see a small lane which are 'covered' by the food stall. Take that lane and turn right, walk around 50 meters you will see the restaurant on your left. If you walk ahead, you will see another muslim restaurant on your right, just a few lot shop from the first one. These retaurant are open from morning time until around 5 - 6 pm.

After lunch, we check-in to our hotel. This hotel has a modern style design and absolutely expensive since we are on low budget. We take a shower and head back to the Central Train Station Hua Lamphong looking for a train ticket Bangkok - Butterworth which cost us 1120 Baht per person!

Then, we move to Silom, this place is very popular with a place call PatPong and PatPong Night Market.

We come back to our hotel around 2130 hrs and get rest!

Our first day expenses was:
1. Lunch 130 Baht
2. Hostel 900 Baht (@Hua Lamphong Hotel, just infront of the MRT Station)
3. Train to Silom 72 Baht
4. Dinner 200 Baht
5. Misc 50 Baht
6. Train Bangkok - Butterworth 1120 Baht X2

Im sorry, I dont have pictures for these!

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
