A chill trip to Krabi

Hello! It’s September already and I didn’t even write anything in August. I even forgot to post my Krabi post geez. Really sorry, but honestly August was great to me. I went to Jakarta for a family wedding and an interview with a Journalist, and also my commencement date to work from Jakarta office is finalized, finally.

Awesome news, I bought a ticket to Ho Chi Minh and I’ll be gone next week! With T and N, and N’s sister as well. I think it’s gonna be a lot of fun, I can’t wait really! But I haven’t even told you guys about my trip to Krabi. Oh goodness, I am really sorry. For Robin, lol I didn’t mean to prolong this but.. I was lazy lol sorry babe. Let’s start!

Okay, so… My partner always wanted to go to Krabi, Thailand. She told me this quite a few times. At first I was like.. what is Krabi? Is it some sort of place where you can eat lots of Crab? Or Krabby Patty?

My first Yangon trip – Part 3

This post is the end of my Yangon trip! Finally I could make something consistent, until the end! Quite proud of meself yay! Anyway, I’m at Northpoint City currently, writing from the nearest mall in my area, Yishun, baby!

So what I did the second day (16/6) at Yangon is basically visiting another pagoda (the last one), and shopping (not that wild tho, because I don’t have the money…)

My first Yangon trip – Part 2

So.. maybe you’ve read my post about me went to Yangon for the first time. Now, I’ll tell you a bit about what I did there after we left the airport. Hint: pagoda, pagoda, and pagoda. Lots of em.

T and I decided to go to Shwedagon Pagoda while we were waiting for hotel check-in. Basically, almost everything in Yangon written in abugida. Of course I couldn’t read it and Google Translate, the one that you can take picture and it will translate rightaway, didn’t help much too, because it doesn’t have the database somehow.

We then rode a Grab so we don’t have to haggle and got scammed because we really don’t know the base fare. I love how Grab make things easier for everyone to use public transportation. Anyway, for the ride to Shwedagon, we paid 7,300MMK (SGD7). Since T would be the one who pay all my meals, I decided to pay mostly the rides we had in Yangon.

My first Yangon trip – Part 1

If last 3 weekends ago I got nothing to do and decided to make a website, the next weekend (15/6) I decided to do Yangon trip. Well, I wouldn’t go if it wasn’t a “spontaneous” decision made by me and my office friend, T. Myanmar (or Burma) was never on my bucket list but a few months ago, T, who is a Traveler, told me Myanmar was her last “unticked” country in Southeast Asia.

And so we booked our hotels and flight for our little Yangon trip, I think around a month before. It was quite cheap, SGD288.25 each person to be exact for 3d2n.. return flight and hotel in Yangon included. Although, now if I think about it, it wasn’t really that cheap, compare to my Krabi trip, which ticket I bought just days before.
