SINGAPORE! Don't you remember?

It's clean, comfortable, free Wifi, have Wii game console, 2 sets of computer and books. Besides that, it's near to all the places we wanted to go. We chilled and rested at this hostel before going out for lunch.

Dubai. An expensive place.

Many of us have the dream of visiting Dubai, I'm not too sure why either. Maybe cause it is a modern and beautiful city. Everything over there is over-priced! Dubai is a BIG contrast from Egypt. Everything here is clean and modern with skyscrapers and man-made desert, beach, snow and etc. I had the experience of a lifetime here. Worth visiting at least once. To sum up my trip to Dubai. =)

  • Went to Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi. Sat the World’s FASTEST roller coaster and drove a Ferrari car!
  • Went to the World’s LARGEST mall, Dubai Mall. (Took me an hour to walk from one end to another end!)
  • Saw the World’s BIGGEST water fountain. (the lightings were pretty!)
  • Climbed the World’s TALLEST building, Burj Khalifah and recorded the sunset.
  • First time camping in the desert! (Celebrated a poor Christmas as a nomad)
  • Went to a 7 star hotel, Atlantis for the waterpark. ( The hotel located on an island with the shape of a palm tree)
  • Went dune bashing, camel riding and sand skiing!

First day: Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi!

Uses G Force to shoot you up in the sky!

 

On a roller coaster

 

Bro driving a Ferrari
Awesome show on acrobatics!
One of the 3D rides
I drove a Ferrari WHAHAHA

World's Tallest Building - Burj Khalifah!

 

 

Blury :O
Day 2: The climb
Look at the view from above :)

 

This was earlier before sunset
Top of the building. There's a hotel up there.

 

Day 3: Gold market and Camping in dessert

GOLD~!
Dune bashing with this vehicle!

 

 

Hand art

 

Memory jars

 

Our tent for the night

 

Camping Area looks authentic

 

Fire place

 

Last Day: Went to Atlantis waterpark and played with the dolphins. :D

Nice painting of the ceiling

 

Atlantis as the backdrop. A bit dark tho.

It's time to go back home. SEE YOU NEXT TIME DUBAI. :)

Egypt: The Cradle of Civilization

A total of 8 days spent abroad with 2 days spent on the airplane. The other 3 days were spent in Egypt and last 3 days in Dubai. 
 
Egypt, a place where world civilization started. 
 
After spending 7 hours on EgyptAir, we safely arrived Cairo. The time difference between Malaysia and Egypt is about 6 hours. Lucky no jet lag for me. :) 
 
EgyptAir
For this Egypt trip, we went as a mini tour group. Our tour guide was awesome and experienced. He studied 4 years of Egyptology. No wonder he knows the whole of Egypt in and out. We traveled in a mini van to our hotel named, Mercure Cairo Le Sphinx. 
The toilet
The Bedroom
Balcony

Our first stop is to the Egypt Museum. I only took pictures outside the museum as cameras were not allowed inside the museum. Inside the museum, we saw many artifacts, monuments, coffins of the Pharoahs and Cleopatras.

Exterior of the Museum
Broken nose :O

After the museum, we passed by Tahrir Square. They were having a demonstration at that time. So scary :O

Tahrir Square

Next stop, LUNCH! :)

Their famous nan bread

 

Beef~!

 

Chicken chop

After our meal, we headed over to the Pyramids, the main attraction for coming to Egypt. How can one visit Egypt without visiting the Pyramids? All the Pyramids have a history that dates back 2000 years ago.

Ticket into the great Pyramids
On the pyramid itself
Camel riding
After the Pyramids, we visited the perfume and papyrus factory outlets. In the perfume shop, they gave us free samples of different perfumes. And we also got special permission to watch glass blowing! :D
Glass blowing
Papyrus making

After dinner, we came back to the Great Pyramids to watch the sound and light show. It was super duper cold and windy during the night time in Egypt. 

 

 

Light and Sound show

On the second day, we visited Egypt's famous mosque.

Bro dressing up as a Pharoah
This is the biggest mosque in Cairo
Interior of the mosque

Apparently, the mosque has a dome-shaped roof because during ancient times, they did not have microphones. Dome-shaped roofs help to concentrate the voices of the father. 

Next, we visited the churches of the Cryptic Christians. The first church was Abu Serga church where this church received the Holy Family 2000 years ago. I think It was my first time taking pictures inside the church.

The route of Jesus and his family had taken to come to Egypt :)

 

Posing inside the church. First time taking pictures in a church

 

Entrance of the church
After a lunch buffet, the tour guide brought us to the souk area to bargain cheap souvenirs. I bought a few souvenirs over there. You have to seriously bargain with them for cheap stuff. Pretend you want to walk away if the price is too high. Trust me they will call you back :)
At night, we cruised the Nile river. The buffet on the ship was so-so only. The belly dance and spinning man were fantasti.

 

Belly dancing

 

Spinning man ( he could spin crazily for more than 5 mins!)
On the third day aka the final day in Egypt. We visited another church by the river. It's a really unique church. First time going to a church by boat! :O And it's not a normal boat, it moves by the wind. It is not operated by the engine you see on motorized boats.
Look at the big sail up there! :D
Interior of the church

Finally, we also visited the Pharaonic Village. It is good if you are studying for an exam of Ancient Egypt. A great place to visit for a memory refresher for your exam!

Bro bought a Papyrus boat!
Rich man's car!
making fire with just a stick :O

 

How they buried the mummy. Just for show. Not a real set!

 

BOOO mummy!

 

Ideas on how they built their pyramids.

However until today, how Ancient Pharoahs' build their Pyramids is not known.

 October War to regain Sinai!
After this, we were headed to the airport to catch a plane to Dubai. On our way, our tour guide showed us the big contrast between the rich and the poor in Egypt.

Next stop: Nocturnal House. The photos taken were not so clear as it's dark inside and no flash is allowed. Not many photos cause it's too dark.

Next stop: Taipei 101 tower! Taiwan's tallest standing tower. But before that we stopped at a shopping centre for lunch + dinner. We didn't eat anything the whole till 4 pm. Stomach was groaning.

 

This shop's matcha ice cream was awesome! I really love it! <3

 

 

37 Seconds to the 89th floor. How fast is that?

Taiwan - Food Haven :P (Day 1 & 2)

Hello Taiwan!

Welcome to Taiwan! A place where food is available at every corner! :) It was during the Raya Holidays (26th Aug to 31st Aug ), my family traveled to Taiwan. We took JetStar airlines from KLIA to Changi Airport, Singpapore. Spent roughly 4 hours at the airport chilling, shopping and also eating. Then, by China Airlines, we flew to Taiwan and touched down 6 hours later. On that plane, we had individual screens! I watched some movies and played some games. Here are some pictures me and my sis took when we were bored.

Fly higher!

Our comfortable hotel after walking for more than 10KM per day

From the Airport, we took a bus to Cosmos Hotel and went off for supper.

Some dried tofu i think

 

Seaweed soup

 

Cold noodles!

Then is back to hotel for a good nights rest! :D Thank God for watching over us, allowing us to arrive safely.

 

 

Day 2:

Wake up early in the morning and had buffet breakfast in the hotel. They have lots of variety but sadly every single day they will serve the same food. Imagine staying there for 2 weeks man.

Bread.Carbohydrate.Bread

 

Food. Food. Food

 

Corn Flakes!

After breakfast, we walked to Xi Men Ding. The whole street was super quiet in the morning. (Taiwan-ians wake up very late). Most of the shops were still close.

This is how Taiwan look around 10-ish am.
Consider very empty

Basically what we did the whole day was WALK & WALK & WALK & EAT & EAT & EAT. That's all!
Sweets like Sticky here

My Brother. Why you no smile?

Bought some omochi to try. It's delicious!
 
We walked around Xi Men Ding till 6 something then took MRT to Shihlin Night market and eat again! :D All the local food will be in Shihlin Night Market. It's like Glutton Square in SS2 Except this is triple the size. Imagine so many stalls selling food. You won't know which one to eat. 
 

This is how crowded the place is at night.

The MRT station Pillar.

Who's up for smelly tofu?!

How i wish this can be smelled.

After that we tried the Taiwan's famous shave ice. (My favourite in Taiwan). The ice is super fine until you put into your mouth you can't even feel it! 

 

Different choices of Shave ice.

Mango & Strawberry Ice

 

 Green Tea & Red Bean
 
 Peanut Ice
 Chocolate Banana Ice
