I guess that, most of us had travel more frequent now compare to last time, thanks to AirAsia that had made Asian country near with their cheap flights. During last round of Zero fare, I was unable to get those destination cheap then ended up with a very last minute decision heading to Bandung Trip with very cheap fare of return ticket RM85.

I had travel with AirAsia couple of times and this would consider the worst as my flight first got re-schedule for both heading to Bandung and Returning that had cut off our time there a lot. Then when heading to Bandung, flight got delay, then heading back to Malaysia, flight also delay. I guess this would be my very first experience in this. Aiiii. . . .

Direct flight journey was pleasent with their friendly crew from Indonesia that took us about 2 hours journey to reach.

Bandara Husein Sastranegara Bandung is a very small air port.

bandung day 1 (3)

After we happily spending some time taking pictures at the landed area, then we have to pay the price for being in the line around 45 minutes. With only 2 immegration counter opened as we are the last flight to be in for the day. As we head out from the area was nearly 10.30pm.

bandung day 1 (4)

Then I told Agnes that I want to try out local food, and Bandung being a small town, as around 11pm most of the shops are close and very limited area to get for food, she manage to think of this warung, Warung Nasi Ampera (Ampera Restaurant) which is famous for their very local cuisine, that served Sudanese food. (Sudanese is West Java ethnic), that operates 24 hours.

bandung day 1 (5)

This famous chain restaurant started as early in 1970’s in the capital city of West Java and till to date they have operations of 50 branches around Indonesia and around 30 branches are in Bandung itselves.

bandung day 1 (6)

With their dining area, classic warung decoration style that potray most of their culture, its something like our Kopitiam style.

bandung day 1 (7)

bandung day 1 (8)

As I see the price list, it is quite reasonable.

bandung day 1 (9)

The way the served are more like our economy rice style, that the bench is filled with array of food, then you can pick what you want they will heat it up for you.

bandung day 1 (10)

bandung day 1 (11)

bandung day 1 (12)

One of their signature classic dish is with this vegetable dip with their very own local sambal.

bandung day 1 (13)

The sambal might be just the look and let me tell you, you dip a bit  then you will feel the flame coming out from your mouth. Its soo spicy yet it is tasty. A must try~

bandung day 1 (14)

bandung day 1 (15)

Their local tea taste abit like our Teh KwanYin with ginger served warm.

bandung day 1 (16)

My all time favourite drink in Indonesia is Teh Botol Sosro. Hardly miss.

bandung day 1 (17)

This is what they Called Lalab, fresh vegetable with sambal which is one of the popular entree for Sudanese Cuisine.

bandung day 1 (18)

Then Agnes and Mosandy order the food for us to share, and they don provide fork and spoon, we have to eat it by using our fingers. Another new challenging thing for me to do yet I have to snap pictures. Petai is good, that the smell of it is not too strong, fermented Tofu had unique in taste, that goes along with rice is perfect. Ribs is highly recommeded, with its soft and juicy meat that I ended order another 2 more. Beef Brisket that had been deep fried with their own spices is another dish to aim for.

At the end of the meal, we had a very satisfy local delights to begin our food and shopping journey. A recommended place by me if you are aiming for local food.

Location:
Warung Nasi Ampera

bandung day 1 (19)

As the time was not too early nor too late, then Mosandy suggest us to head to one of their famous bar on the weekend which is Sobbers. Consider one of the hottest place on weekend with certain occasions, there will be special DJ spinning in da house.

bandung day 1 (20)

As I walked into the place, I am very suprise to see the interior of it. Contemporary style yet very cosy place to hang out with friends.

bandung day 1 (21)

With their outside area are filled with rattan chairs with soft pillow for us to seat in and the temperature for the night is chill around 20 degree which such a good weather for beer and chilling.

bandung day 1 (22)

As for inside, the VIP area are filled with sofa’s to host you and your friends. ..

bandung day 1 (23)

Another area. .. . .

bandung day 1 (24)

and if you feel like grooving around on the dance floor, it is located directly infront of the DJ deck with some stools at the bar counter and I just cannot imagine how it is gonna be like on weekend.  What can we expect on Tuesday night crowd with many of them have to work on the next day.

bandung day 1 (25)

The dance floor is quite spacious for grinding and dancing. . .:D

bandung day 1 (26)

When I flip thru the drinks menu, one columm that certainly caught me by suprise is the price for the beer. Guess how much is it for a bigger jug then ours of Heineken? I was price only at RM28 and for a Tower of 3L, it is price at RM55. Its so cheapppppppppp . .. .

After all those hang out spots, went to check in at our guesthouse Rumah Ebo, which is situated along the famous factory outlet at Dago area which is just 5 minutes walk out.

bandung day 1 (32)

looking through at the net, alot of travellers recommend this place with hits cleaninness and the rate of it. It was only RM100 per night or around ID270,000.

bandung day 1 (33)

Its a very environmental friendly guesthouse with a huge garden inbetween that seperates the opposite room.

bandung day 1 (34)

2 single bed with attach bathroom and if you want to save cost, those without bathroom is cheaper. There are no closet for you to hang our clothes except those on the wall above the TV.

bandung day 1 (35)

Both the toilet and room is very clean and we are satisfied with it.

Here I am, getting all excited and been waiting for the past 9 months been very torturing as I bought my flight ticket on Airasia during zero fair promo some year year 2009 end of the year, and I was very jealous those who make their journey to one of the food paradise Taiwan by capturing a lot of nice scenery too. Hence me and my friends feeling good travelling there as there are some pre-arrangements. 😉

DAy 1

Our flight there was the AirAsia-x which I thought that it was their smaller flight with those compact places and I was so worrying that what will happen to me after my 4 hours flight in that cramp seat. To my surprise that, the seats are eventually bigger and something similar to MAS economy class seats which I am happy off. The only difference is that there are no cabin crews serving us with free flow of beverage and in flight entertainment. The only thing is that, we need to pay what you want to eat including water. So be prepared to bring some Malaysia currencies and also it is advisable to bring your own gadgets like i-phone with games app, PSP or anything to keep you entertain during the journey. If not will be like us, growing mushroom and BORED to death! I guess this is one way of Budget airline goes.

Finally, after 4 hours of bored to death journey and I cant sleep, we had reach our destination.

DAy 1 (4)

Please TAKE NOTE All travelers below 30 years old, are entitle to apply for the ‘youthtravel card’ which benefits most of us that do free and easy tour or especially to a group of friends to entitle us greater savings on mode of transportation or entry to a park.

It was a long queue under international travel lane but it took less than 5 mins to clear us off at the immigration, as this show efficiency.

DAy 1 (6)

Currency Changes is RM1 –> NT 10

As travelling from airport to Taipei city, we only have to choices that we known on that day, either you take a public bus which takes about 70-90 minutes depending on traffic and by Taxi is about half that time. We were in the hurry that day, so we opted to take Taxi and trust me, it doesn’t comes cheap as 1 taxi to our destination is NT1200 = RM120. 3 of us in a car so it was 2 taxi.

DAy 1 (7)

This trip we were on budget so, the arrangement that my friend had arrange was home stay that a lot of my friends say that we can go for Motel, which is cheap, nice and clean. Home stay would be like a risk to go after. What can I say, that home stay would be a good experience as this is our first time staying in this option.

Taipei Home Stay was the choice as it was recommend by one of the friend there, with its convenience to a subway LRT 1 minutes walk away, 7-11 3 mins walk away and 1 train stop away from Taipei Main Station.

DAy 1 (8)

Upon our arrival there, we were surprise to be greeted by the landlord herself and with her friendly character had make us feel that we had made the right choice.

DAy 1 (9)

When I see my room, I was astonish to see how nice my room and how cozy it feels like. It feels exactly like home with a mini kitchen, filled with a queen size bed and 2 optional sofas cum bed. Actually our room is to accommodate 4 pax and my brother and housemate last minutes cancel their trip due to work, so we are occupying the whole place for ourselves.

The room all the rooms are equip with cable TV with more than 80 channels to watch, wireless connection and basic necessities in the toilet. It cost us NT1100 per night, as extra pax will charge NT 200 each, therefore is NT 1300 per night. I cannot remember what is the TYPE of my room and advisable to copy and paste to let the onwer see.

DAy 1 (10)

Our Cosy bed to ly on as what we were told by the landlord lady, our room is quite brand new that just newly renovated by her compare with other rooms, this would be one of the good ones.

DAy 1 (11)

Toilet with basic necessity (soap and shampoo), please take note that they DO NOT PROVIDE TOWELS. Therefore you have to bring your own towels or buy it at the night market.

DAy 1 (12)

After we had settle down and take a quite bath, she asked us are we hungry and she insisted to bring us to one of the best Fried Chicken around the area which is definitely much better than the one in Shilin Night Market. When it comes to food, I was the first one to agree.

The very last time I travel to this area was my college times, as we visit this place quite frequently for the western food and seafood as we find the seafood was relatively cheap, it was not until last month when my best friend Tatt came down for his business trip also treat us for his birthday before he went back. One thing that I know that the Subang Airport now had transform till very nice and I really wish that on that time it was operate by Airasia when they very first started(for convenience wise). BB Seafood Village

I guess the restaurant that I ate is no longer at the same place as and had move as then I still remember that it was very next to the western food (Papa and Mama Grill).

BB Seafood

BB Seafood (2)

A very classic type of seafood restaurant build with atap and set with wooden and plastic chairs.

BB Seafood (3)

The very first order came by was ‘Clear Fried Clamp’ RM16 which I find it very aromatic with the slices of ginger taste had cover the clamp very well to overpower the smell of it and fried it very nice as we enjoy it very much.

BB Seafood (5)

‘Stir Fried 3 Mix Bean with Dry Shrimp’ that had makes me thought that what a simple dish it is but that proves me wrong always as simple dish is always nice which is very hard to cook, and the vegetable are very fresh with the beans are very crispy, ladies finger is very soft and abit gammy that the small shrimp saltiness is just right. RM 15

BB Seafood (6)

I would say this is the best of all, ‘Mongolian Prawn’ which is deep fried yet the meat in it is very soft and was shower with the abit spicy, creamy and sour sauce on it. Goes very well with rice as every one is fighting for it. RM18 Its good and worth a try.

BB Seafood (7)

‘Steam Fish’ fish is rather normal as steam with soy sauce but the meat is soft that shows the sign of freshness. RM24

BB Seafood (8)

‘Salted duck Egg Crab’ I have never tried crab in salted duck egg version, turns out to be very shell licking good as I keep aiming to eat the left over small pieces of duck egg and the crab was fried in wok that make it all stick around the crab to very aromatic. RM 68

It was a great meal treated by Tatt as convenient for him to fly off after that and in that month itself he celebrated his b’day more than 5 times.

At last or Finalllllyyyyy, I am going to Pulau Redang. Been talking bout this trip since college time and always the timing is no ngam.
When the time was right, the group that I planned with they FFK me…Did not inform me and went themselves few years back. I was lucky, got to go with my friends that get to know not long ago~
I didn’t sleep alot as have to wake up at 3am and catch the shuttle bus at 3.45 at KL central. I thought we were one of the group that craze enough to go so early and thought that the bus would be empty or half only. To my surprise that it was full…
The best thing of all was I reached air port at 5 am, and it was already sooooooooooooo many ppl checking in to so many countries. I feel that, it is so much more ppl compare to KLIA around this time. Thought that the country is having economic slowdown but I Guess it’s not.
The convenient thing about Airasia is that, if you do not have any luggage to check in, can directly check in at this Kiosk and will directly print out your ticket and proceed to the respective counters to get certified with a stamp on the ticket. That’s all. Hassle free. The flight departing at 7.10am
50 minutes later
 
After a short flight in it I finally feels like my leg gonna cramp as the seated place is so narrow. We finally reached Kuala Terengganu. The airport is tradition in its way.~

I thought it was a some fancy jetty, mana tau, the jetty is like Bukit Tambun seafood area. Swampy~

Not a fancy big boat, but a small boat which can take 14 ppl max, more than that, chances of the boat tengelam is quite high~ but with this speed boat takes about 30 minutes to reached back here.
