The journey to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia’s capital city) from Singapore can be in many forms of transportations.I love the trains,coach and budget planes!If you take the train using KTM,it will take u about 7hours.And they have a time schedule. http://www.ktmb.com.my/ (Oh they do accept online booking and credit card but it must be booked few days earlier)
If by coach,they have schedules too but there are so many different coaches that they can overlap each other at times.Singaporeans often take the most comfy luxurious looking buses.Fares are from $20-$45 per trip.This will often take about 4-5 hours.But if you are not that peculiar about its comfyness (any coach will do) , just head to Beach Road, Golden Landmark,Lavender bus station and the recent one-behind Mustafa Centre.
Ok..this trip is a short one.Got some matters to attend to.I’ve checked my favourite budget airline and it seems on that special day, Im departing there is a certain promotion of SGD$5 one way!Woo-hoo! (of course as mentioned,after adding all the taxes-SGD$38) Do note that,the plane does not stop at KLIA but at their budget terminal.But I like when they depart from Changi Airport terminal 1.It felt luxurious like Im embarking on a mysterious faraway adventure because all the other major airlines are stationed there too hehe!
Airasia airlines are booked online. http://www.airasia.com/ So hassle free and its-print-ur-own- boarding-pass! Just be there 2-3 hours earlier before departing time to check in (as usual) and enjoy what freebies Changi airport has to offer…e.g free 15 min internet, free machine foot massages,free flow of water cooler *lol and loads more… http://www.changiairport.com/
Alhamdulillah,reached safe and sound…40mins later..
Reached LCCT,Kl budget terminal. http://www.lcct.com.my/ (oops…the site also looked kinda low budget that I thought I got into the wrong site!)
From there,u can take the monorail to Bukit Bintang or any other rails.http://kiat.net/malaysia/KL/transit.html
I love this initiative-hand sanitizer at every station stop.
http://www.agorahotel.com.my/ Ok,reached the Agora Hotel-2 star.Normally, I will opt for Capitol Hotel, or any other 3-4 stars but since Im on a tight budget here.2 star will suffice for now.
Furthermore, where can u get this type of view (below) with the twin tower hovering in a distance for just RM$108 per nite?!!(although the window is actually the one and only back end view) I only have 2 openings (note its not window,its opening) one is at the door,the other is in the bathroom.I think I can squeeze my body out in case of emergency.Hmm..
Ok,the cleanliness is mmm..okay.Did find few droplets of dry blood beneath the sheets (YIKES?!!) And the toilet is alright.They do provide toiletries like shower cap,shampoo,liquid soap. And they provide me with a bottle of mineral water but I noticed the cap is kinda detached,so Im not gonna touched that…
Got to be happy with whatever I have,alhamdulillah…
p.s:if you are wondering why this blog post looked weird, Im wondering too..Cos few weeks of not blogging,suddenly felt awkward,everything seems so misplaced… *sigh
