Kuala Lumpur – Kulaijaya, Johor Day 17


Thursday, 11 March, 2010

12:00 am

Could not sleep all the while. At times I stood at the coach door to  have a smoke. Met an English guy who came up to have a smoke too. He was heading to Singapore to catch a flight home back in England on Thursday night. He had spent two months in Thailand and a month in Malaysia. I could sense some dismay in him at the thought of going back to normal life. He said there was still snow. Yeah, the weather seems to be ABnormal nowadays. From what I knew, it seldoms snow in London, I had been there once in December.

5:35 am

Train arrived at Kulaijaya (old name was Kulai) station as scheduled. No taxi, so I just hanged around, logged on the net.

7:00 am

Left train station to have breakfast of Roti Canai or in Singapore they called it Roti Prata. It is a kind of pancake made of wheat flour. It is cooked plain or with an egg or onion or both. You eat it with curry (fish or meat) or Dalcha. In Malaysia there is another gravy called the Sambal Tumis. You cut it into small pieces and dip it in the curry or have the curry poured over it entirely, sort like soaking it. It’s a preference to one’s desire. After the breakfast, I walked to Kulai bus terminal and took a taxi home.

8:35 am

Arrived safely back home.

This trip was made possible by the cheap flight that I had to book two months in advance by AirAsia. My intention for this trip was to shoot some photographs that include some scene from up country and if possible get to the summit of Mount Lawu. On summary, I’m glad that I had made it to the summit, some photographs in Solo and lots in Jogjakarta.

As for the up country…well, there’s always be another time.

Will update the trip blog with some pics later.
