May is over and it was hectic but it was an experience. It all started in the middle of May when Juliana and I flew out of Kuching to go to Miri.
KUCHING TO MIRI (806 km)
The reason why we went on holiday was to spend time with Serena (though I was a surprise for Serena)
By flight, it takes only an hour to get from Kuching to Miri. That night, Jul and I went by AirAsia. If we had driven up, it would have taken us 12 hours (more or less).
The furthest I have driven was from Kuching to Bintulu and that took me about 7 hours because I maintained a speed of 110 km throughout the journey (when the road was clear).
KUCHING TO KUALA LUMPUR (978 km)
Kuching to Kuala Lumpur (22.5.16 – 26.5.16)
I went to Kuala Lumpur just 3 days after my Miri trip for a company event in Morib. When I got to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Khairul was there waiting for me to bring me to the office because he had arranged for another colleague of ours to bring me up to Morib.
The journey from the airport to the office did not take us 31 minutes. I was shocked when I saw the Petronas petrol station. It felt like a 15-minute drive from the KLIA but when we got to the office, my boss told him he should have brought me up to Morib right after picking me up from the airport because our CEO was to arrive in KL from Singapore at 4.30 pm.
So, Khairul was the one who drove me to Morib where my Kuching colleagues were already waiting for me. I told Khairul, if I were to drive from the airport to the office, it would had not been a problem because I know the road so well already but to drive from the office to the resort, I would have gotten lost. The reason why we went to the resort was to attend a Demak Dealers’ Award.
After that event, the next day, I followed my General Manager back to the office from Morib because Khairul could not drive me as he was driving our CEO but Khairul took over but I asked if he could stop by Suria KLCC because I wanted to go to Kinokuniya to look for a book and M&S to get myself a pair of lounge pants (which I bought two instead of one).
But I got to Kinokuniya to find the book NO LONGER THERE… Then, it was 22 minutes journey from KLCC back home to Mont Kiara. Unlike my colleagues, I stayed on in Kuala Lumpur to attend an Emcee and Moderating Workshop in Bangsar South, just 10 minutes away from home.
KUCHING TO SINGAPORE (725 km)
Please refer previous blog entry (Les Misérables) to know what I did in Singapore.
And, we went to the Jurong Bird Park as well and spent so much time in the Underpass. It was wonderful there. I would go back for the Underpass. A lot of things to see there.
So, since Monday is the start of the fasting month, I seriously hope I won’t be travelling to West Malaysia. However, I hope the next time I get onto a plane, it will be in July when I head out to London for my sister’s graduation in Stoke. The time in between, it better not be for work. I want to stay in Kuching for the month, I need to collect money for London and if I am not mistaken, my Mum said about going again in December.
Oh well. I love London enough to say yes to a trip to London but this time, I won’t look at London the same way again, not after playing Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Hahaa!
