SINGAPORE – JOHOR BAHRU TRIP 2013 (DAY TWO)‏

We left our room at 8:30 AM, looked for restaurant but none opened that early. Only a convenience store then I bought few cups of instant noodles (the hotel owner lend a water boiler) for breakfast.

I also bought few cans/boxes/bottles of canned drink. My favorite (hard to find in Jakarta): The kundur (tea with winter melon flavor).

LEGOLAND, SMALL WITH LOADS OF FUN

We left our room at 10:00 AM. KK NG dropped us to Legoland with his car, RM 16 (cheaper than taxi that might cost RM 22.40 refer to http://www.ihcahieh.com/2013/06/johor-budget-and-itinerary.html).

Our first destination was the waterpark. Alif spent three hours in the Lazy River, etc and tried almost all of the slides (unless the ones those he called as “baby slide” because of their less height and short track).

After lunch, we entered the theme park. Raining for few minutes at 3:00 PM, later we enjoyed the park until 7:30 PM (closing time during weekends were 8:00 PM, two hours late than weekdays).

After dinner, we left the park at 8:30 PM. Called KK to pick up us again, he arrived at 8:45 PM and took us back to hotel within 10 minutes.80 (Burger King) + SG$9.50 (CW3)

SINGAPORE – JOHOR BAHRU TRIP 2013 (DAY ONE)‏

TIME IS MONEY, ONE MINUTE = Rp. 10,000!

It was Friday – November 15, 2013.

I left from office before 1:00 PM, arrived at home at 1:30 PM, then we left home at 2:30 PM. I thought it should be enough time before closing time (45 minutes before ETD 5:15 PM). But weather and traffic jam ruined my trip, it took I reached Terminal 2 Soekarno Hatta Int’l Airport at 4:40 PM. The check in counter closed already, but the guy there was kind enough to give us boarding passes and let us go to departure with Rp.100,000 of “extra charge”. We were 10 minutes late, means one minute = Rp.10,000. Now I know that “time is money” is true statement. Hehehe…

BURGER KING IS HALAL IN SINGAPORE

We felt so hungry when arrived at Terminal 1, Changi Airport. After looking around, we decided to have dinner at Burger King near exit gate (turn left after custom check point). Glad to know that it had halal certification from local Islamic organization.

MIDNIGHT TRIP TO JOHOR BAHRU

We left from Terminal 1 at 10:00 PM, got Skytrain to Terminal 3, MRT to Jurong East, finally arrived at the bus terminal after 90 minutes.

The last CW3 departed at 11:45 PM as scheduled, after two immigration processes, then we arrived at Warm Blanket Hotel after one hour trip. The guy at the front desk, KK NG (yup, that’s his name pronounced as “Ka Ka”) gave us room number 11.
