So.. because of lack of a proper plan.. i almost missed my flight.. haha.. the flight is scheduled at 11:00 am with boarding time on 10:30am.. so waking up in 6:00am should be fine for me.. but because of overslept.. i only managed to wake up in 6:30am! after quick preparation i only managed to left my house and heading to the lrt station at 7 something.. waiting for the bus for 20 minutes.. and finally i reached KL Sentral at around 8:00am.. it is kind of late as i have bought skybus ticket along with my flight ticket and referring to skybus's website, we should board the bus at KL Sentral 3 hours before the flight.. so i was kind of late for that.. while panicking.. finally i found the bus is yet to depart.. while boarding.. the staff in charged ask for the ticket or itinerary.. but.. i only printed out my boarding pass and did not print the stupid itinerary.. so.. he advised me to refer to Air Asia counter to get the itinerary printed as prove of purchase.. when i was there in Air Asia counter.. i found out that they only open at 9:00am!! so how the heck am i gonna print out my itinerary? and we can't re-purchase the ticket for skybus there.. after all these i have an urge that may be all these meant i shouldn't have take this flight.. but i told myself i have to try no matter what.. as so.. i went to the KLIA transit counter and bought myself a KLIA transit to LCCT with hope..
Finally.. the KLIA Transit reached at around 8:30am.. the train will stopped at Salak Tinggi Station and we have to take bus from Salak Tinggi to LCCT.. luckily.. i still managed to reach LCCT at 9:30am.. it seems like KLIA transit only took around one hour to reach LCCT from KL sentral.. after the security check.. i finally reached at departure hall at 9:40am.. and it was like finally! haha.. now i knew it doesn't necessary to depart from home so early.. as i do still have plenty of time to wait at the departure hall.. hmm.. i believe with this experience.. it would help a lot! as previously i used to take cab to airport on working purpose..
The flight took 2 and half hour to reach at Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) and i think i was sleeping for 3/4 of the journey.. this is rare because i don't usually sleep during travelling.. i guess i am really tired at this time.. hehe.. so i reached KKIA at aroung 1:40pm.. bought myself a bus ticket to KK Town.. it cost me only RM5.. boarding just in front of the entrance of KKIA Terminal 2.. felt grateful as previously I heard there is no bus heading to KK town and we need to take a cab which cost me at least RM30..
so.. the first thing i did in KK Town is find my accommodation for the night! i have survey and shortlisted a few hotel before i came.. so with the help of a town map obtained in the KKIA Airport.. i managed to locate one of them easily.. asked about the room rate.. within my budget and check in! it was like finally for me.. haha.. took a short break and it was already 3 something in the afternoon.. so i started with my first stop.. which is settle my lunch! due to rushing.. i have yet to have my breakfast and lunch even though it is 3pm now.. so heading to Gaya Street.. find a place which serve "Sang Yok Mee".. a local noodles with variety parts of pork including minced pork.. pork intestine.. meatball.. and etc.. the price is RM6.00 which for me is consider comparable to price in KL even though this is just a small town.. overall.. the noodle was good.. or may be it is just im too hungry? haha.. no photo as im really hungry at that time.. hehe..
填饱肚子后就真正开始了我的第一站观光之旅.. 第一站就去了离Gaya Street不远的Jalan Tun Fuad Stephen走.. 这里的特色就是海边了! 话不多说.. 让照片说话吧..
After my lunch i started my loitering tour in Kota Kinabalu town.. so i guess i will just let photo to describe places i went.. haha..
过后看见三个中国游客和当地售卖海产的档主用着彼此都听不懂的语言询问价钱时.. 八卦的我就临时当起了翻译员来.. 就这样认识了她们.. 过后便聊聊大家在亚庇的经历.. 原来她们也是背包旅行来这里.. 而且还是第一次出国旅行.. 哇.. 我还蛮佩服的.. 因为三个女生第一次出国就到语言不通的国家来.. 还是背包旅行.. 蛮厉害的嘛.. 一起吃了一餐晚餐后便分道扬镳了.. 明天她们将前往美人鱼岛.. 而我将会到Kundasang去.. 所以彼此祝福大家旅途愉快后边分离了.. 过后我才想起我们没有交换联络.. 或许这就是独自旅行的其中一个乐趣.. 就是接受人来人往.. 在旅途短暂的认识..
Met three China's tourist here bargaining with the Filipino stall owner using the language which i believe both of them also don't understand.. so due to my "kindness".. i decided to become their translator and help them solve the problem.. and knew them because of that! haha.. after a short chat with them.. i was quite impressed that they were also backpacking here as this is the first time they having their oversea travelling.. it was really something as three of them are ladies and travelling to an oversea place which differential in language might become one of their travelling barrier.. we have a simple dinner together and farewell after the dinner.. after that only i remembered we did not exchange contact.. but i guess that it is the nature of backpacking.. people came and people go in the journey.. learned and adept this situation as i am sure this will definitely happen again in my journey.. so good luck to you all! and hope you all enjoy this trip in Malaysia!
