Backpaker Wanna Be : Day 1

Namanya juga tiket promo ya, jadi jam penerbangannya semacam pencilan, kami dapat penerbangan jam 6.45 wib which is supaya ga telat harus berangkat jam 3.30 wib dari Damri. Ternyata dari Damri Pasar Minggu ke Soetta Cuma 1 jam, masih banyak waktu buat solat subuh dan sarapan nasi:mrgreen:

Changi Arrival Lounge

Setelah perjalanan 1 jam 30 menit dan akhirnya kami sampai di Changi Airport, ok please do not compare Soetta to Changi because it’s obviously different. Changi is so tidy with all the facilities in it. Setelah melewati imigrasi sana, kami jalan-jalan sebentar, melihat-lihat Changi. Ah ya, we bought the sentosa 1 day play pass at Changi Recommends turun satu lantai dari lantai 1 Terminal 1, kenapa beli disitu? karena kata mba-mba airport, disana lebih murah:mrgreen: . It was cheaper 4 SGD and we also bought the Song of the Sea tickets [no discount for it].

After that we go to the MRT Station at Terminal 2 [or you can get there from Terminal 3 also] and you don’t have to worry, Changi has skytrain for each three terminal, you won’t get lost. From reviews, it’s better to have an Ezlink, it provide ease of any public transportation in Singapore. We add value to our Ezlink Card. Ah ya, my first miss-communication adalah 15 dan terdengar 50, untungnya value yg 50 SGD di Ezlink saia bisa re-add jadi cuma 20 SGD. Dan ingat, pecahan untuk ngisi Ezlink ternyata cuma 10, 20 atau 50 x_X. Setelah itu kami masuk ke MRT area, kalau dari Changi, platform A dan platform B sama-sama di green line, tapi cuma berenti di Tanah Merah, untuk melanjutkan perjalanan harus transit di Tanah Merah dan ganti MRT arah Jo Koon.  Untuk ke ABC Hostel harus turun di Bugis Station lalu keluar ke kanan arah Bugis Junction tapi pintu exit yang ke kiri setelahnya (bingungin ya directionnya?! karena sebenernya 2 hari disana salah pilih pintu keluar, jadi boros tenaga buat nyebrang deh.. :P). Nah, dari situ tinggal lurus terus melewati Victoria St. [atau mengarah ke Raffles Hospital] sampai ketemu Jalan Kubor, belok kanan, jalan sedikit lagi dan sampailah di ABC Hostel. As we all know, di SNG tu disiplin banget, mau nyebrang juga harus tunggu tanda boleh nyebrang, bisa aja sih kalau kosong nekad nyebrang, asalkan baiknya jangan terlalu berinisiatif akan hal ini, ikuti orang yang tidak sabar aja. Selama disana sempat beberapa kali nekad nyebrang dan ga ketangkep polisi:mrgreen:

We take a rest for a while, we craving for lunch. I think it is easy to find halal food at Bugis area, there are Masakan Padang, Warung Pariaman, and a lot of Arab Food. We chose arab food then. Ashar at Sultan Mosque and after that, we go to Marina Bay. Marina Bay is on the red line, so from Bugis we transit in Raffles Place Station to continue to the Marina Bay Station on the red line. We had to have a long enough walk to Marina Bay, but it’s ok, this is our first day city tour, right?! Karena masih agak cape, jadi kami jalan pelan-pelan menyusuri Marina Bay kalau ada tempat duduk, boleh lah ya have a sit sikit:mrgreen:

Setelah jalan-jalan dan foto-foto lalu kami kembali ke hostel, pulang melalui Raffles Place Station untuk langsung ke Bugis tanpa transit.

Actually one of my friends is a permanent resident in SNG now, we met at night then I ask him to drive us to Orchard Road. He did. Not only sightseeing to Orchard Road [That was Friday night and for the first time, I felt the traffic jam in Orchard Road] but also to Chatsworth Road, the point of Indonesia Embassy, tepatnya di 7 Chatsworth Road, Singapore 249761. He explained us that the Chatsworth is like Menteng area in Jakarta, so quiet road, many big houses, and no public transportation to there. You just simply take the MRT to Redhill Station and take a taxi to there or take the 132 bus from across Redhill Station [if I’m mistaken] and you have to walk from Tanglin Shuttle Bus a little bit far. I think it is important for Indonesian to know where the Indonesia Embassy is, by procedure, Indonesian have to do the registration there [or online] for their own good and for the better administration.
