Two Weeks Adventure

It is 6.51 am in the morning local Malaysian time. I woke up at 4.30 this morning, something I rarely do. It was because it was the day for my friend to leave for the UK. That is one of the main reason I have been busy for the pass two weeks. What was suppose to be just a visit by my friend turned out to be one interesting event that would see me going to Singapore and staying in a budget hotel known as Hotel 81 Palace at Geylang Road. For those unfamiliar with Geylang in Singapore, it is famous for prostitution. But what the heck, I always wanted to do something spontaneous.

However, it has been a tiring two weeks that made me fall sick at the end of it with severe sun burns and tanned skin. Whatever it is, no regrets.

Being able to travel has always been something I enjoy a lot. Well, let me have a word or two about Singapore. Singapore is a small island country just south of Malaysia. Singapore which is also known as Singapura came from the word Singa and Pura which in Sanskrit means Lion and City. The lion part of the name came about after Stamford Raffles apparently seeing a Lion upon landing at Singapore.

I have always wanted to go to see the Merlion and Fountain of Wealth at Suntec City which I was fortunate enough to do so. I might have seen the Merlion when I was younger but could not recall. I also had time to visit West Coast beach and Sentosa Island. After spending 4 days in Singapore, I came back by the Konsortium coach that brought me to Pudu Raya where my sister picked me up.

I spent a day in KL sight seeing and clubbing at night before heading to Genting and staying at First World the day after. I experience the new 4D motion master for the first time and watched Pink Panther as well. I headed home for Penang the next day from the bus terminal in First World.

We spent the remaining days visiting tourist spots and shopping. Finally, what seems like forever had come to an end.

Well, that’s all for the moment. I am planning to write a few reviews about the movies I watched like Pink Panther and Casanova but there are no promises.
