04.49 am – I was actually awake since 4am, but only decided to take breakfast at 4.49am.
05.52 am – Reached the airport. I have never woken up so early and reach the airport so early before in my life.
Checked in and got out boarding pass.
06.35 am – Was on the plane by this time. (my watch is about 15 min faster)
07.00 am – Loved the clouds.
Watched the sun rise from above the clouds. Life felt perfect.
07.44 am – Arrived in LCCT KL.
The entire place was pretty empty.
07.51 am – Saw AirAsia’s check in machine.
Tried to check in to my next flight.
Touched ‘Scan Itinerary’ and amazingly, it recognized the bar code printed on the paper. Awesome stuff.
Selected ourselves and
touched ‘Confirm’. And then it asked to scan our passport and this was where it failed. It just couldn’t scan our passport properly, no matter how many thousand times we tried, no matter from which angle. WTF?
And so we had no choice but to line up and check in at the super long queues.
Less than 10 minutes later, we got our boarding pass.
08.22 am – Headed towards OldTown and had breakfast.
Everyone’s favourite nasi lemak ayam rendang.
08.50 am – Took a free newspaper from the stand and read the news
while waiting for the next flight out from LCCT to Bali. One advice for Bali go-ers. You can wear shorts all the way. No need for long pants as the weather is super hot in both Malaysia and Bali. It’s lighter and you have more space in your luggage that way.
09.35 am – Was already by our departure gate, T12.
Connected to LCCT’s free wireless internet and did some time wasting there.
09.57 am – Our plane.
10.05 am – Checked out AirAsia’s new 2010 menu.
mmMmm…. Looks delicious…..
Can’t wait to try it on the way back!
The drinks and the instant noodles. The best instant noodles are the ones served on Thai AirAsia. I had it once during my 2nd trip to Bangkok in 2009.
(You should check out my 1st trip too (2008), if you have not seen it.
11.09 am – We were given Indonesia’s customs declaration form and arrival/departure card to fill in.
11.09 am – Caught an aircraft’s contrail.
11.13 am – Felt thirsty.
01.25 pm – And we landed. yay!! I was so damn excited. Like a little boy.
The first Balinese structure that I came across while on the way out of the arrival hall. I noticed that all the gates at the entrances to everywhere were sort of like divided into half symmetrically.
01.43 pm – And as I left the airport, I saw my name held by someone who looked like a character from a Lat comic strip.
Everyone say hi to Dean, the highest rated driver in Bali as reviewed by thousands of his previous customers in
The man behind the group called ‘Drivers With Distinction’. Definitely value for money. Paid a total of RM300 for 1½ days tour.
The dashboard of his newly bought
Toyota Kijang aka Innova.
Caught the first few glimpse of Bali.
01.56 pm – First stop was Pawon Pasundan in Jl Kediri 2, Kerobokan.
At first, from the looks of the outside, I thought I was gonna be ripped off. The place looked pretty well maintained compared to the other surrounding buidlings.
The surrounding scenery was nicely done. One of the nice stuff was the nice looking bridge by the nice looking pond. Nice!
Got ourselves a nice private hut.
Had a waiter to serve all of our needs. Need chili? Ask him. Need more water? Ask him. Need extra plate? Ask him. Best service!
A picture of us.
Nasi Oncom. RM2.
Cah Tauge-Tahu-Ikan Asin (bean sprouts with salted fish). RM4. Cheap.
Sapi Serundeng (beef with fried coconut shreds). RM3. Cheap.
Flying Gurame (flying fish). RM13. Cheap! Definitely worth your money. I will definitely recommend this place to anyone arriving in Bali’s airport during lunch hour as Pawon Pasundan is near the airport.
