Feels like Home di V.O Holiday Homes, Kuala Lumpur

Percaya atau nggak, dari sekian lembar paspor saya, 60% nya diisi oleh stamp imigrasi Kuala Lumpur yang ngejeblakk gede hampir seperempat halaman sendiri itu, hihi. Wajar aja sih, sebagian besar trip yang saya lakukan mewajibkan saya untuk transit ceria beberapa jam hingga seharian sebelum lanjut terbang ke destinasi sebenarnya. Malah ada momen dimana saking bingung mau ngapain, saya sengaja meluangkan sekitar dua sampai tiga hari tinggal di ibukota Malaysia tersebut demi berleha-leha, kumpul sama teman-teman yang berdomisili disana hingga do nothing. Nah biasanya sih, kalo lagi ngetrip kekota ini, satu hal yang suangattt saya riweuhkan adalah penginapan! Yap, wajib banget bagi saya apabila tempat yang saya inapi tadi memenuhi kriteria 3B, beauty, brain and behavior… ok I was just kidding :p Tapi soal standar preference, saya beneran punya terms and conds yang harus saya pertimbangkan benar-benar. Strategis dan gampang kemana-mana, itu yang paling utama! Saya nggak terlalu suka sama penginapan di antah berantah, unless saya emang lagi pengen lari dari kenyataan #eaa. Selain itu, harga juga mempengaruhi !  Ada harga adarupa, harga agak pricey asal ambiansnya cozy dan fasilitas …

George Town Free Shuttle Bus Map (Penang Trip, part 2)

Penang tourism department really treats tourists who visit Penang island very well. It is tangibly seen from its transport facility which is provided for tourists to move from one place to another. One of most favorite public transportation in Penang island is CAT atau Central Area Transit shuttle bus. It  is a hop on bus service which doesn’t charge the passenger to have George Town city tour.

Being a Temporary resident in LCCT, Kuala Lumpur

LCCT or Low Cost Carrier Terminal in Kuala Lumpur becomes my temporary home when having my second South East Asian trip. Right before heading to Philippines from Lao, I took one night staying at the LCCT. And not only on that day, I also spent a night sleeping here one day before flying to Lao and one day before flying back to Jakarta. Not because I really am into this airport so damned much, but I was forced to do so due to the very early morning departure time. Since I have slept there for three days, more or less, I totally remember the whole place inside the airport, where the rest room which has shower is, where the drinking fountain is, where some best spots to sleep are, and where the cafe which has cute waitresses is. Sleeping at the airport is not categorized as committing crimes. So many travelers do that for variant reasons. Some of them prefer to save some money by sleeping there rather than spend it at the hotel. Some …
