SEA + China Backpack 2012: KL-Hadyai-Krabi

Assalamualaikum ...

We start our journey on 31st October 2012 and we planned to travel for 40 days roughly. Our first stop is Krabi, Thailand. Along with us to Krabi are a group of other backpackers Adree and geng!

We took a train from KLSentral where we bought the ticket through the net www.ktmb.com.my. We bought two tickets to Hadyai which cost us RM54.00 for sleeping berth lower for one person. It took us almost like 15 hours from KLSentral to Hadyai which will make you feel bored all the way if you dont have anything to entertain you!

Since we met a lot of travellers from Malaysia, we just make friends with them and we have decided to travel together until Krabi!

On our way to Hadyai, we have to get off and on at Padang Besar. Here we need to check-in and out through two immigration department Malaysia and Thailand! Everything seems smooth here as far as you have a valid documentation and you bring nothing doubt in your luggage!

*The food at the Padang Besar Railway Station is quite expensive but still at a normal price! So, enjoy the food there! But if you would like to try the real Thai food, tell your stomach to be patient for another couple  hours ok! You may have a simple and cheap Thai food in front of the Hadyai Railway Station then!

Once we touch down at the Hadyai Raiway Station, we have been chased by the 'ulat-ulat tiket' which they claimed that they have the cheapest bus service from Hadyai to Krabi. Well, as usual, dont trust them! Even if they claimed they are Muslim and never will cheating you! Normal bus fare from Hadyai to Krabi is RM30.00 or more or less 300 Baht! They will offer to you for the fare of 350 to 450 baht, makesure you bargain or get together with other travellers! Normally they will charge another 50 baht to Aonang Beach.
As my advice, get together with other traveller and better to go to one place together, either to Aonang Beach or to Krabi town.

*You dont have to make an advanced booking to Krabi or Aonang Beach from Hadyai Railway Station.

Well, below are the pictures for KL-Hadyai-Krabi:

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
