We dumped our luggage at Central Ashlee Hotel and headed off for breakfast nearby.
|Peace yo! :)
Then off we went to visit the Jungceylon Mall. The biggest in Patung area.
After chilling at Starbucks for an hour, we walked back to our hotel to check-in. OMG free rooms for us. Thanks to my dad who knows the owner of the hotel :)
Enjoying herself on the bed already!
Taking more pictures
We then chill again at the hotel. Played Cho Dai Di. Klothilda first time learning. We forced her to play! :)
Trying out the gym at the hotel
We got so bored and decided to go swimming at the rooftop pool! :)
Why you so scared of water? :(
At night, we walked along Patung Beach to search for seafood restaurants. And we found Patung Seafood Restaurant. Good food over there. :)
Are you ready to eat? Cause I'm starving!
I'm drinking COCONUT.
When our stomachs are filled :)
Then off we go to Bangla Road where all the clubs were.
Taking pictures in front of clubs :O
It was a guided tour with a big group of people. We visited a few islands and went snorkeling. We didn't manage to see any corals. They were all dead I believe. :(
|I like to move it move it~!|
Known for its name-Kiasu Land, Singapore is a must-visit place. I spent 5 days in Singapore with a bunch of crazy and hyperactive kids (college kids :p) . They made the whole trip awesome! (Y)
|From left to right: Matthew Chin, Leon Lim, Kok Zheng, Jason Yee, Chee Jen, Ang Roxanne, Vivian Siow, May Gee and Charmaine Chan. Eh? Why Beng not in one? Nevermind you will see him later :)|
Departed from KLIA to Changi Airport. From Changi, we took a train to our beautiful hostel called THE FIVESTONES HOSTEL. I highly recommend everyone to stay at this place. 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.
|Buying ice cream bread at China Town :)|
|Look at the Chinese sausages at the back!|
|Sitting on the floor of the train station :O|
|Posing at The Speaker's Corner (Don't ask me why the place call Speaker's Corner!)
From the hostel we walked to the food street. Quite a distant walk but good exercise yo!
|Night time at Singapore (cheh looks the same as Malaysia)|
|Ordered Char Kuay Teow from this stall. GOOOD (Y) Nom.nom.nom
After eat full full. We were headed back to the hostel for a good's night rest.

We were very lucky. Not much crowd as we went on a working day.
|See not many people. Told ya! :)|
|The Colorful Merlion (Only found in Singapore's Universal Studios!)|

Fifth attraction: Forgot the name. Some water show la. If you are scared of Gun sounds and water. Don't sit at the front! But I highly recommend you to go even if you are scared. It's worth the experience :)
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!|
|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
|Dune bashing with this vehicle!|
|Our tent for the night|
|Camping Area looks authentic|
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. :)
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
Next stop, LUNCH! :)
|Their famous nan bread|
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|
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.
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|
|Spinning man ( he could spin crazily for more than 5 mins!)|
|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!|
|Ideas on how they built their pyramids.|
However until today, how Ancient Pharoahs' build their Pyramids is not known.
|October War to regain Sinai!|
|On the way to the zoo|
This shop's matcha ice cream was awesome! I really love it! <3
37 Seconds to the 89th floor. How fast is that?
City view from Taipei 101
Look at the lights
Mascot for Taipei 101
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.
|Acting cute eh :P|
|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|
Then is back to hotel for a good nights rest! :D Thank God for watching over us, allowing us to arrive safely.
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.
|Food. Food. Food|
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.|
