Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2)

Finally a chance to have a look at Malaysia’s most boasted new low cost carrier airport which opened recently. Looks better than KLIA itself. Maybe coz’ it’s new, but I guess gotta give credit to where it’s due. Looks way more vibrant and livelier as compared to the main airport. Here’s a couple of shots taken on my flight back to Singapore.

KLIA08

A really big display board.

KLIA11

Starbucks’ one of the main tenants. Another one is located in the other block.

KLIA06

KLIA13

Really surprised to see Tissot to take up a slot here.

KLIA07

AirAsia check in kiosks. Now everyone gets to fly, as long as you pay for every little darn thing. No money no talk.

KLIA02

It’s empty coz’ it’s located right after the immigration counters. OMG. So strategic!

KLIA14

KLIA12

Integrated shopping mall.

KLIA05

You see more people here as compared to its main counterpart. Understandable since it’s a terminal for the low cost carriers, more people  are able to fly.

KLIA04

KLIA03

Big shiny gates to greet you along the way.

KLIA01

KLIA10

A plus point for the waiting area as compared to LCCT. Clean. No smell. No flies. Brightly-lit with clean toilets. Clean toilets are very important, you know. Right?

KLIA09

And finally, the gate. Most stuff ain’t in order yet. Many shops are yet to open. And be warned, you may end up being breathless if you’re exiting the plane, walking towards to immigration counter. It’s a long stretch. Despite the area being air-conditioned, I ended up sweating. Do grab any trolleys you see along the way if you’re carrying any heavy bags, or you might just end up regretting not doing so.

Random Japanese Shots (Part 1)

I’m on a roll this month.

Was rummaging through the photos which I’ve taken randomly a while back, the people of Japan. Guess I’ll post these up for randomness too.

And finally… I’ve no idea what this is. Probably trying to make a fashion statement, eh?

Cheers. Will post more soon.

Changkat Bukit Bintang, KL.

On Mother’s Day, we made a trip down to Changkat Bukit Bintang for food. To be honest, of so many years I’ve lived in KL, I’ve never actually got down here at night. Going to Elcerdo was my first time. Yes, was a virgin then. Not many activities were going on since it was in the burning hot afternoon. However, it’s totally different at night. Plenty of nice hangouts with lots of good eateries around. Despite the drizzle, managed to grab a couple of night shots. Excuse the phone cam quality.

CB03

Many cabs in the area since it’s a famous tourist spot. You won’t be able to get anywhere in KL without a vehicle. Just don’t get ripped apart by them. Take the ones that uses a meter. Or use MyTeksi app. Highly recommended.

CB01

Take your pick.

CB04

CB02

Just a note. Remember not to bring too much cash, or blings that may attract unnecessary attention. Being a happening area, it’s also famous for its fair share of snatch thefts and robberies. So just be careful.

Nobbies, Phillip Island. (Melbourne)

Missing in action as of late. Been preoccupied with FFXIV:ARR and work lately.

Was in Melbourne recently for a holiday. How I miss the coffee there. Melbourne is one the places which offers fantastic coffee.

The photos were taken using a Galaxy Note II, picture quality ain’t that great but the scenes were just too awesome not to post it.

Make a trip down to Nobbies if you’re on Phillip Island. The area itself is not too far away from Penguin Parade.

Victoria Peak, Hong Kong.

Made a short trip up to Hong Kong just before I started working in Singapore.  A nice place to visit but things are even more expensive than Singapore itself. Been told that Hong Kong’s a good place for shopping, fashion wise but with the hefty price tags? I beg to differ.

Heard about this Victoria Peak, so had to give it a visit once, since I’m already here.

TRAM1

From Sheung Wan MTR station, it takes about 10 minutes to walk to the tram station. There’s a mall right up on the Victoria Peak, called The Peak, and it’s assessible through driving or taking the tram up. It goes up a very steep slope since it’s a mountain that we’re going up unto.

TRAM2

Waiting for the tram feels like an eternity.

TRAM3

Waiting was no fun at all. Spent almost close to 2 hours just to get on board the tram. Since it has a limited capacity, it could only carry that many. Be prepared to torture yourself if your bladder is full. Be sure to take a leak first before you start queuing cause’ there ain’t any washroom nearby.

TRAM8

See what I meant? Packed!

TRAM4

And here we are, at the observatory. I’ll skip the mall since it’s nothing much to talk about. Just like any other malls out there. Oh, there’s a Madame Tussauds thingy inside the mall. So if you’re into waxy figurines, you may consider stopping by.

TRAM5

Apart from the waiting, I did enjoy being up here. You can almost view a large portion of Hong Kong from here.

TRAM6

If you look closely, there are big mansions and houses located on the peak. Only for the rich and famous, I believe.

TRAM7

Hong Kong’s skyline. Would I go up for a second time if I had the chance? Once is good enough. No doubt. I would rather save the money for something else.
