BeiNG MaLaYsIaN. II

Around 6.00am, my family and i safely arrived at TANJUNG a.k.a Terangganu, and the funny thing is we cant CHECK-IN to the HOTEL room because it wasn't 12nn. "Stupid rules made by stupid people"
I was like "huh! is this a joke or something!", come on i'm so damn sleepy and also my families. i even beg the receptionist to let us in since, we booked the hotel room. The ANSWER is NO. So my sister said here we go again.Never in my life encounter such thing, Imagine this if you happen to arrived at that particular place at 3am, are you going to wait till next day at noon to check-in.
The receptionist offer to put our luggage at the cleaner room. And we have to hang around till noon, OH MY GOD!!!..as i can remember i was cursing why this happen. At that moment i told my sister that we better pack and get out from this place. Being a cool sister and she manage to cool me off. So we ate breakfast next to junior school. And it still 7.30am, so i look around snaping a pictures. So we walk around the TOWN, from one end to the other.
(FYI:AMY & MASTURA & CELINE - macam "PAPAR" bah tempat dia).
My sister Geraldine, she been here before "OFFICIAL TRIPS" So she suggested for us to visit this "PASAR PAYANG" - this is HEAVAN for TERANGGANU BATIK. By 8.30am only a few stalls open, so we walk around till all the stalls OPEN for business. Within 4 hours, i think my dad and my mom spend more than RM500.00 and thats not include two of my sister And later that afternoon the spending MORE $$$$$. Meanwhile..LEO and I suffer from the dust sickness.. for those doesn't know personally, most of my family members HAVING ISSUE with DUST in other word "SENSITIVE"..
PASAR PAYANG has more than 100 stalls selling BATIK, Handmade craft from bamboo, iron, bronze etc.. for once this trip worth for what we paid for. BUT still sleppy and Exhausted from the bus ride, my soul shouting for help... so it almost noon, and the weather is killing me softly :) We took "BECA" (English : tricycle) i'm not so sure about the English version for it. hmm still clueless.. any way

And the back to the hotel, again we have to wait for the room.. after 30mins.. at last HEAVAN.. after taking my bath.. everyone in a slumber land.. around 4.30pm most of up woke up. And at this point LEO suffer from serious dust exposure at PASAR PAYANG.So after refresh and poor leo sneezing almost 30 second and my sister Cottila-marie having fever. hahahaha what a day.!!

So Next mission possible!! there's a carnival somewhere the beach area. We so busybody.. and check things out. God! carnival should be loud and busy.. but this *tsk*tsk, dun knoe what the purpose of this carnival. After a while my parent and my sisters continue their advanture of BATIK search and as for leo and i.. we just take our time at the beach area and snapping some pictures. after an hour or so we left and heading to PASAR PAYANG again. But This time both of us just LEPAK "hang around" outside and enjoy the evening view of TERANGGANU.

Around 7.30pm we heading back to the hotel and ready for DINNER.
At 8.30pm after we take shower we had out dinner at the hotel restaurant. Dinner just SO-SO.. :P then back to the room and watch TV and ZZzzzzZZZZ.

At 7.00am woke up and breakfast and FAREWELL TERANGGANU.
FYI : i slept all the way to KL :P , but this time we use different BUS... more cosy...
FYI : not all the way KL actually la.. we had our LUNCH and one of the REST area, location ????

END next trip PANGKOR ISLAND......

BeiNG MaLaYsIaN.

What can i say about it. Now, malaysia rated as 3rd most rude country in the WORLD! Like it or not, i have to check on the POSTIVE(+) and NEGATIVE(-) over this survey.

Ok, wanna talk being MALAYSIAN. huh! :)Love this nation very much because, all people from different background able to stay under ONE ROOF,NO matter what skin colour we had. We still remember our background "feet on the ground". From KAMPUNG or BANDAR (village people or cities)during holiday seasons, all malaysian HEAD back to KAMPUNG, to celebrate the festive seasons. Most of malaysian don't send their parents to RUMAH ORANG TUA "OLDFOLK HOMES",we're not KACANG LUPAKAN KULIT (ungrateful family).Do we complaint much? Perhaps on certain issue, but most we ZIPss it. As matter a fact, I'm one of the person complaint the most. But later i found out other's who complaint 24/7, over stupid mistake created by themselves. Go Figure!

Now let me tell you something happen to me make me agree with the survey. Like it or not here I COME!

Happen to my family (does that count ME too! :P ) during our trip to WEST Malaysia. Cuti-cuti malaysia "HOLIDAY-HOLIDAY MALAYSIA" hahahaha. What for being malaysian if you never travel within your country. Shame on you if you didn't!.. Instead taking flight we decided on BUS at PUTRA BUS TERMINAL (somewhere in KL city) Here the nightmare begun. First being malaysian i greet the ticketing clerk, no reply.. Ok than i move on by asking her i would like to buy a ticket for 6's to terengganu. And i got the reply " No More ticket, go to other counter " the lady shouting as if i'm completely lacking in the sense of hearing. With respect i move on to the next counter, maybe not a good day for her. For your informationthere's no NOTICE BOARD telling us "SOLD OUT".. Duh! So i ask the next counter, asking the same question. And do you know the reply i get. "We're selling ticket here what! why asking?, if want to buy, buy la!" (note: Malaylish " The Malaysian English"). What a day! i turn away from the counter, but i gave a word to her, " Miss if you hate so much the job given to you, pls give it to someone else. Or else please show some respect". So i went up to the management counter and log a complaint. I went to other counter and bought 6 bus tickets But the story doesn't end there. Our bus scheduled at 10pm, the following day. Got confuse by the ticket "printed destination : TANJUNG". I call up the bus operator, asking why the ticket printed Kuala not Terengganu. And the Operator kindly explain TANJUNG is in TERENGGANU itself, so i take in.

Time showing 9.50pm and still waiting for the bus. And funny thing happen, clueless a Question pop up into my mind, WHERE should we wait for the bus?. So my sister and i went up to the information counter and they said just wait for it. On the tickets printed only seat number, destination, time and a number 40. A young gentleman standing next to me, and i saw a number 40 on his ticket. I think he know that i'm trying to figure out. And he explain to me, and number 40 represent the BUS number duh! Stupid me..

The trip was OK, just forget about HOW FAST the bus travel..i think must be 120KM/hour....
