5 Days Holiday, More Than 5 Weeks Rest

I just came back from a 5-days-holiday (11th – 15th June) with my friends, two from Singapore and one from Selangor, all are my course-mates. We began our journey from Johor Bahru by renting a car, to Melaka, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Ipoh, and Muar.

Satay Celup at Jalan Ong King Wee, Melaka. I used to eat this very often, and introduced to my friends who first tried this. Price unchanged, RM0.60 per stick.

Penang 桃园 (Taoyuan) at Jalan Campbell. Having Dimsum as breakfast there. The Egg Tart is famous there, but not captured in photo.

And this, the 芽菜鸡(Beansprout Chicken) at Ipoh. Nice, but a little too salty. Mixing with rice is just nice.

5 days trip, feeling greater than 5 weeks staying at home.

Although it is just a 5 days trip, it’s kind of entertaining, relaxing, and fun to enjoy the trip with friends. Throughout the trip, we planned, we booked hotel, rented car, then ate, drove, sleep, played, and get drunk!

It’s a memorable trip. The effect of getting myself off of stress is far better than staying for 5 weeks doing nothing at home. Travelling will be part of my yearly event soon.

After this, I am going to Nanning, China, for four days trip. This trip is going to be different. First, it’s not only for entertainment, but for an investment project too. Second, it’s the first trip I go China. Third, I am going to learn more stuff, including China’s culture, and the investment project itself. I will blog it next week!

  2. Illa,
    Yeah, that's indeed a good recommendation.
    But there are more choices of company, you may go to http://www.cramonline.org/ which is a Car Rental Association official website, and you can make several comparisons between one and others.
