Half Price Singapore Surprise

Lately Arianna has been asking us to take her to all sort of places. First she would say, "Jom pegi Singapore Tok", then she would ask her Ibu to take her to Genting Highlands and the most famous is to take her to Bandung. When we ask why Bandung, she would answer, "Nak beli baju untuk adik". Bila besar nanti confirm la pandai buat proposal paper. Justification always strong.

I think she misses traveling. Its been a while since we had our holiday trip. The last one was to Genting Highlands and since nowadays we spend our days and nights in my parents place, Arianna even misses her home in Ara Damansara. And with Wifey is about to get back to work next next Monday, I think its justifiable to take the family for a short trip.

Hopefully we can go for a 2 days 1 night trip. To celebrate Wifey's success in overcoming her all-day sickness, a "Jalan-Jalan Cari Makan" trip should be in order. So no overseas trip since we wont truly enjoy the food. As for now, Kuantan seems to be a reasonable choice. The distance is not far - 2 hours drive, familiar place and the main attraction will be Ikan Bakar Petai Tanjung Lumpur. Wifey did mention about Ikan Patin masak tempoyak in Temerloh, but I'm not a fan of patin nor tempoyak. The plan is to go on the 17th May and balik on the 18th. Anybody wanna join?

For those who are in the same boat which their holiday trip is long due, now is the best time to visit Singapore. If your budget permits that is. From 23rd May till 30th June, Malaysian with Malaysian passport can enjoy 50% off on all of their participating attractions in Singapore such as the Zoo, Night Safari, Cable Car, Sentosa Island and etc. Click the link for details. Its either 50% off for paying in Singapore Dollars or you can opt to pay full price but in Malaysian Ringgit. For example the Singapore Zoo, entrance fee for adult is S$16.50 and children S$8.50. Imagine if your family of 2 adults and 1 child is going to the great Singapore Zoo, it will cost at least S$41.50 and times 2.2 = RM91.30. Plus food, drinks and souvenir.. senang2 cecah RM150. But with this offer, you'll be paying RM41.50 for entrance. Campur makan, minum semua tak sampai RM100 kot!

For those who has a decent budget and wants to stay in Concorde Hotel Singapore, here is a map sketched by a Cari Forum member for my trip to Singapore last year. Click on the picture to get a bigger size image. The map is for those who wants to take the Second Link Highway which will enter Singapore via Tuas. Jalan lain aku tatau la. Plus i did not drive when I was in Singapore. I parked the car at the hotel and used the public transport to move around the island. Wait till I get my GPS device, then I'll try driving in the city :)
