Found a cheap international flight ticket is like a golden ticket. It was happened really sudden and unintentionally. By having a dream to go around the world, I decided to book a flight ticket Jakarta-Penang, Malaysia-Jakarta. It would be my first travel without any family, but only with my room-mate. Crazy! The schedule was for almost a year ahead, so I had time to prepare many things (money, information, etc) to be ready as a traveller 😀
Times fly sooooo long, until it came closer to the date, I still couldn’t believe that I will go abroad for travelling with my room-mate! Well, I haven’t told why should be Penang as the destination. It’s kinda place for sick people to get a better health service. Unfortunately, some people might not realized that Penang has historical places and also thousand of delicious foods. My mom has been there before and she recommended me to explore it someday. *I did it, mom!* Instead, I went to Thailand (Hatyai and Phuket) because of my flight would return back after a week. If I just spent a whole week in Penang, it would be bored.
Anyway, it was a semester break in March 2013. The weather at that time was very hot. We walked a lot and took much of pictures. There was no difficulties when we’re in Penang, because mostly people are able to speak English or Melayu. While in Thailand, we got a trouble in language but it was fun. People tried to help us although we didn’t understand each other. During our trip, it was not always good. Sometimes we argued to have different things. Overall, I could say that the one who arrange everything was me. It was really my pleasure!
Here are some pictures for the view of Penang, Hatyai, and Phuket. It just begin! I will never stop to dream 🙂
