Short Escape to Malaysia – Penang Edition – Part 1

After Kuala Lumpur and Mellaca, this post will tell you about Lil Sis stories in Penang. Penang is the last port of Short Escape to Malaysia. We spent 2 night here and mostly our time was used for culinary experience. Penang is wonderful town to eat and spend your time to find good food. Because our flight is delayed, we arrived late at Penang, as usual we ordered Uber and it safely bought us from airport to our hostel. After check in, we went to our capsule, explore the capsule and then we decided to go find something to eat. We plan to use motorcycle, so first we must find a rental place. We found one beside our hostel, maybe just 20 steps from the main entrance, we found a book shop that also rent a bicycle and motorcycle. We rent 2 motorcycle and they provide us helmet. We got new motorcycle with more expensive price than the old ones. But we have healthy body, so the new ones look strong enough for us. They asked our driver license and passport. Oh yeah, they don’t need international driver license, we gave them Indonesia Driver License. We also filled an document to rent the motorcycle. After that he copied the document, we paid, and we can use the motorcycle 48 hours (we rent it for 2 days).

Review – Hotel – Time Capsule Hotel @ Penang

Di postingan kali ini aku mau sharing sedikit pengalaman aku waktu nginep di Time Capsule Hotel di Penang Bulan Oktober 2016. Jika kalian baca di postingan aku Short Escape to Malaysia, kalian pasti tau kalo aku pergi ke Kuala Lumpur, Malacca, dan terakhir Penang, selama 3 hari 2 malem, aku and the gank nginep di hotel yang cukup futuristic ini. So check it out my opinion about this hotel.

Jadi awal mulanya, aku sama temen temen bingung kan mau nginep dimana selama di Penang. Dan setelah berhari hari rada madol waktu kerja gara gara kebanyakan browsing cari hotel, kami menemukan hotel ini. Dari gambar gambar yang beredar bebas di dunia maya, kok lucu ya, kok keren ya, kok nampaknya futuristic banget. So, setelah akhirnya 4 personil setuju nginep di sini, Miss Pepz pun langsung booking, 4 capsule for 4 people. Harganya juga nggak terlalu mahal, 1 capsule itu kurang lebih 300K IDR. Tapi waktu check ini ada tambahan deposit sih, cuma waktu check out bakalan dikembalikan.

Short Escape to Malaysia – Malacca Edition – Part 2

So, I will continue my Short Escape to Malaysia Edition, still at Mallacca, I and my friend decided to take a rest before spent our night at jonker street night market. If you confused about my opening, just read the rest about my Short Excape to Malaysia here. So, we decided to go to Malacca on Friday, because we know that Jonker Street Night Market only open in Friday, Saturday and Sunday Night. So we arrange our trip like this.  As we know, and Miss Pepz experience (She has visited Malacca before), Jonker street night market will full with food stall, craft stall, clothes, bag, and many more.  So, we really excited to explore the night market.

Jonker Street

We moved from our bed on 6 pm, walk to Jonker street, and see so many people, but mostly the stall is not ready yet. I guessed it because the rain just stopped so they are just starting to open their stall. We can see so many seller still busy arrange their display. There are some stall that pull us but it’s not ready yet, so we decided to keep walking, and go there again after that. Maybe we must go at 7pm, so the stall is all ready. FYI, the night market open until 12 am. So, even you go at 9 pm i think it still crowded with people. Continue reading

Short Escape to Malaysia – Malacca Edition – Part 1

Day 2, we plan to go to Malacca, but before that, we plan to had breakfast in KL, find any local market nearby to get some Malaysian food. But Mandra got shocking news, I am in the middle taking a shower, and suddenly I hear crying sound, I finished as soon as possible, and when I exit the bathroom, the aura in our bed room is so gloomy with Mandra cried on her bed. I didn’t dare to ask what’s wrong. Yahh, it’s really a shocking news, but what can she do, it’s already overed, and if she go back to Indonesia, she also can not do anything. So, she just calm herself and our trip is going as we plan. But yeah no breakfast as we want, we eat breakfast that revopacker prepared for the guest, just bread and some jam, but better than go with empty stomach.

Our long JOurney from Kuala Lumpur to Malacca

So we go to Malacca by bus, we already bought ticket online, so we just need to go to Bus Terminal. We ordered uber. The receptionist helped us give direction to the driver where is revopacker. We got small car, with small baggage too, so we must sit with some luggage in our lap. Fortunately the trip is not too long, we arrived safely. Our first mission in terminal is too change the online ticket to get boarding pass to get on the bus. And then, the bread we ate early just fill 1/4 our stomach so our second mission is buy food. But the problem is the boarding time will arrived soon, our main mission to board the bus can not be failed. So, after finished out 1st mission, we directly go to waiting room, to board the bus, dismissed our 2nd mission. After when we sit like 5 minutes, the officer said our bus will be late. So, Mr Damz decided run to buy fast food (KFC, McD, or another type of it). We throw the baton to Mr Damz to conquer our 2nd mission. Fortunately, he got it quick, we got sandwhich by Sub way. Bread again, but at least our hunger is solved for a moment. Continue reading

Review – Ho(s)tel – Nomaps Malacca

Jadi, di postingan aku sebelumnya aku udah cerita tentang pengalaman aku and the gank ke Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. Dan aku udah sedikit cerita juga kalo besoknya kami akan pergi ke Malacca or Melaka or Malaka, honestly I am not sure how to write it, but I google it and wikipedia tell me Malacca, so I will use Malacca. Back to story review, jadi kali ini aku mau review hostel yang menjadi tempat istirahat aku selama 2 hari 1 malem (1N2D) di Malacca, namanya Nomaps. And I got the best treatment there. Aku bela belain posting review tempat aku nginep dulu dibandingin aku di sana ngapain, jadi yang penasaran sama kelanjutan perjalanan aku di Malaysia, stay tuned aja di postingan aku berikutnya aku bakalan bahas tentang Malacca and Penang.

Well, Nomaps itu salah satu hostel yang ntah bagaimana caranya sukses menarik perhatian kami ketika lagi cari cari tempat nginap di Malacca.Aku sama sekali nggak tau kalo ternyata bakalan dapat tempet yang unyu dan instagramable kayak gini sebelumnya. Kami memilih tempat ini karena lokasi yang strategis (deket Jonker street) dan harganya yang sesuai kantong. But, we got more than we expected so I am really really happy. Ok first location , tuh lihat sendiri betapa strategisnya lokasi nomaps ini.

SHORT ESCAPE TO MALAYSIA – KUALA LUMPUR EDITION – PART 2

Still at Malaysia, From Colmar we went up to Japanese House. From Colmar actually you can ride a car, like golf car but longer than it, maybe have 8 -10 row. But we rode a car, so with our car we went there. We arrived at the Parking area, and we must went up on uphill road on foot. Miss Pepz almost gave up to walk up, but after so much fighting, we arrived at Souvenir shop that sell ice cream there. So we went there and bought some ice cream. It sells walls ice cream, and I found unique ice cream there, it’s called Salero, later I found it in Indonesia. It is lime ice cream outside and inside it has vanilla ice cream. It become my favourite ice cream after that, that day is so hot, and we must do some hiking , it’s so tiring and HOT, so this sour and sweet ice cream really refresh our body and mind. SO, when I see that ice cream in Indonesia, I am really happy. So  good for tropical country like Indonesia.
