Singapore #1

Can't believe that I'm actually writing about this trip. It's almost impossible to find time for this.

Well, Singapore. We went there for a 3D2N trip. It was supposed to be a free and easy trip but we made it a hectic and am-pm trip one. God knows how many calories were burnt. We managed to 'explore' all places in just 3 days. Unless if you include museum into it. I mean, you do know that Singapore used to be part of Malaysia, don't you? So you can scratch out museum in your plan.

Tip #1 : Plan your journey. Which is first and which is later. Have a map with you all the time.

Upon arrival

I was the map reader during the trip. A pretty good one, I must say.

Upon arrival, we went straight to Little India which was 10 minutes of walking from our hotel.

Mustaffa Center, a great place to buy perfumes.

Hugry faces

Little India Arcade

Hand-made souvenirs

After check-in, we went to the famous Orchard Road. My oh my, that place is crazy! Endless shopping malls. From high end stores to sg. wang standard stores, you name it.

Tip #2 : Do not bring extra bags and shoes/flops from here. Charles and Keith is everywhere! They dominate every malls. You'll go crazy, or at least we went crazy! Boys, ignore this tips. haha


Tip # 3 : If you go there with more than 2 person, I suggest you to take cab. Easier and faster.

Next post on Universal Studios Singapore!

car kissing

I couldn't believe that I've been driving ttdi-uitm-ttdi back and forth every single day for the past one and a half year. Out of the house as early as 7.15 am and reach there just at time for my 8am class.

Traffic congestion is not a big deal. But finding a ONE parking space in the campus is a big problem. I rephrase, a huge problem.

Uitm is trying as hard as they can to stop student from driving to class due to bad traffic jam especially at peak hours. In order for them to stop us, they put parking barrier at all parking areas which only allow staff to park and thousands of students are left with no space to park.

With very limited available parking lot for students, everyone is fighting for one freaking space. Some of them come very early just to get the best spot and sleep in the car while waiting for their class. Yes, it sounds crazy. Luckily, my class starts at 8am while others at 8.30am.

Double parking is normal. Just imagine when your car is parked nicely in the parking lot and theres this car blocked yours and the owner finished class at 5pm. What would you do then?

Whether you like it or not, you have to push the car in order for you to go out. I'm not talking about pushing one car, its actually ONE line of cars. Now I know where my biceps come from. Haha

To worsen the situation, you have to have at least two person to do it. One to push the car and one to stop the car because there are times when you push it too hard, it won't stop and hit the car behind/in front and hit another car and another a domino. All are kissed back to back. Too much love there.

Look at pictures below. My whitey (white kenari) was blocked by a line of domino cars. Obviously I can't push them alone. All are kissed back to back and pushing one car is like pushing one line of cars.


Driving a bigger car than myvi is like commiting suicide unless your dad is a millionaire to fix your car each time it got crashed.
