Here They Were

It is kinda related to the previous post, now I am talking about some tourist spots in Singapore I went when my family (finally) visited me on last end-year holiday.
1st Day
We're walking around Sentosa and Vivo City. Vivo City is a mall near harbor where the terminal going to Batam and train station to Sentosa. Other public transportation to go there are by bus (whose terminal is not too far away from Vivo City) and Cable Car which is closed right now since months ago until I don't know when. Taking Sentosa Express train cost S$3, you can purchase the ticket there in machines in front of the gate, or use your EZ Link card. There are another ticket counters near the gate, for purchasing any PACKAGE TICKET (they have some choices of attractions package) or SONGS OF THE SEA TICKET. We made a mistake at that time, by queuing that long line while actually we didn't want to buy package tickets. We only wanted to buy tickets of 2 attractions. So when we've finally reached in …

Different Perspective

Have you ever experienced this, when you saw people you know from distance, for example your colleagues who are on the same way towards office, but you were not in the mood for talking to them (for any reasons), so you just runaway taking another bus or hid behind, and when they discovered you and said hello, you said hello back pretend you didn't see them before. It is so poker face, and sometimes I did, but I hope I could minimize this thing happen again, because I want to be a nice girl, for everybody.

Okay let's move on, my post this time is actually about how we see things differently from others. When you've lived in one place for long time (describe yourself how long precisely the long time is), you might feel no special anymore, not like when you first time coming to that particular city. I've lived in 5 different cities so far, each time I moved I thought those cities were mystery. I didn't know where the hanging out place, I didn't know how the peop…

Small Island in Bali Sisterhood

The long journey to get Gili Trawangan: 2 hours drive from Kuta Bali to Padang Bai Harbor, 5 hours by ship from Padang Bai Harbor to Lembar Harbor in Lombok, 1 hour drive from Lembar Harbor to Bangsal, parking the car and taking Cidomo to the port, and 45 minutes by boat to (finally) Gili Trawangan... is worth it. Easy to say that because I was not the one who drove the cars ha-ha. There is a faster and more expensive way to go there from Bali which is by a fast boat, but since we're 11 of us, it's gonna be fun just like we did, rent 2 cars together and experienced this longer trip.

I've just been blogwalking whole day and found many interesting blogs to read. One of them is offering this game called Piece of Me.

This month....

I like: that there will be another oversea trip for me. I am going to visit Kuching for 3 days. Where the hell is that, rik? Well, it is in Sarawak, one of Malaysia states in Borneo Island near Pontianak, Indonesia. I haven't gone there before, so I decided to just book the tickets when I heard about Tiger Airways promo last year. Amazingly I could get the tix only S$12 for both ways Singapore-Kuching. I repeat, 12 Singapore Dollars! It's like 8.55 USD or Rp. 80.375. So if I canceled going there anyway it was not so big deal to lose that amount of money. But I think I keep going. I am now inviting some travelers who are interested to go there together (love the rhythm) and contacting some travelers who are living there. Might this be an opportunity to meet new nice friends *crossfingers*.

I don't like: that... surprisingly I …
