Universal Studios Singapore : How We End The Trip


Almost all of us woke up quite early but few of us still resting on the bed, mindless. Looking around, some were still underneath the blanket, some were staring at the wall/ceiling, some were looking at each other without saying any word, whilst the German guy, hoping still, to be one of the alien of the Alien Travelholic group. Hahaha!

While getting ready, Byya, our chosen group leader, passed the breakfast coupon to each of us. She told us to remove the bedsheet, pillow cover, and blanket, and dumped them into the laundry basket, outside the door. I find this quite funny, for I never do that before. Hahaha!

“I wonder who were you yesterday…so now, you are Stacy, is it?” Lily smiled, looking at my outfit for the day.

“Hahaha…semalam mekap tah ke mana, apa ke mana…” Everyone was in total mess, except for Amy, who unbelievably, managed to upkeep her eyeliner!

Before walked out from the dorm, all of us, (yup), ALL of us didn’t drop a single chance to snap pictures of that “bilik air macam almari”. Hahaha!

At the lobby area, we ordered our breakfast, according to the given menu. We can only choose 5 types of eggs and breads, so I opted for omelet, baked beans, toast, and mango juice. SUMPAH LAMBAT!

Despite the fact that we were in starvation, these crazy Aliens, didn’t stop taking pictures. MasMZ DIDN’T miss any single corner of BetelBox! Trust me! She even captured my breakfast! Hahaha!
We finished our breakfast and discussed on the next act. Lily, Byya, John, Janggel, MasZuber opted for Chinatown, while Chawana, Anash, hubby and I opted for Mustaffa Center. Only Amy had her own plan, to meet her friend at the end of the Joo Chiat Road.
While we decided to take two cabs to the Paya Lebar MRT station, the Chinatown clan walked! (Uih, tak larat kot nak jalan.) We changed station and stopped at Ferrer Park, and walked to Mustaffa Center.


On the road, we saw Hindu believers passing by, shoeless. “Owh…today Thaipusam kan…nasib baik takde wel-wel…” Luckily, there weren’t so many people around the area doing that “scary” thing.
Chawana, Icam and Anash quickly walked towards the souvenir section and grabbed whatever they need. Hubby and I went to the electronic section, for a pack of rechargeable battery. We then headed to the perfume section, and went crazy! I spent almost an hour, smelling EVERY bottles that I longing for. And they were SUPER CHEAP!
I picked two bottles of Paris Hilton and Guess while hubby gotten himself an Azzaro, his favorite perfume during college time.
Chawana then came and only God knows how she bumped into Salvatore Ferragamo! “There’s only one left!” she said. Oh my…I overlooked it!

We later met Lin and her cousin outside Mustaffa Center and her cousin led us to the bus station. Beforehand, we did a quick shopping at the souvenir shops, right in front of Mustaffa Center. They sell 5 FMs for $10 and 7 FMs for $10, according to the material. I only bought one USS FM since I forgot to get one, during my visit there. (Main sampai tak hengat nak beli…)

Anash then sms-ed the Chinatown clan to inform that we will be taking a direct bus to Larkin, from Queenspark. They replied and informed that they will be taking the same route (MRT and bus) like how we came yesterday.
“How far is the bus station?” We asked Lin and her cousin.

“Just behind the building.”
“Which building?” I prayed for the nearest building, which was 50 meters away.

15 minutes later.
Hell no!

“I think, we passed by this building before…right?” I was about to kill Lin.
“No lah…the shape looks the same…tapi lain…” Yet, she was right!
We finally reached the bus station and hopped on the bus.
And snoozed…

The only thing I remembered, we had to hop down for immigration check point, went back on the bus, continued catnap, and reached Larkin Sentral.

“Aaaaaaaa nak nasikkkkkkkkk!” We cried out loud for a plate of “rasa kampung”.

We chose one small resto and had our quick lunch, coz Chawana had to drive back to KL, since Chawan will be on the night shift. Meanwhile, Anash will be waiting the Chinatown clan at musholah, while hubby, Lin and I drove to Johor Premium Outlet (JPO).

“And where the hell is JPO???”

From Larkin to Kempas to Skudai, we took almost an hour to reach JPO! Thanks to Jasmine and Zan, who led us the way.

How? From Larkin, find the highway back to KL and take Senai exit. BEWARE! THERE ISN’T ANY JPO SIGNBOARD AT ALL! You will reach the Senai toll house. Pay and follow the Senai stretch. You will find yourself on a highway, still. THEN ONLY YOU’LL SEE THE JPO ON YOUR LEFT, with its small little signboard.
Nice…WHO DESIGNED THIS??? (And so I heard, PLUS highway actually disagrees with the deal. That is why we see no signboard earlier on.)
Since we will be working tomorrow, I didn’t waste my time to look for what I desired for. A wetsuit and a pair of Levis. I straight away walked into Roxy/Quicksilver and asked for a wetsuit…but I saw a question mark on her face. Pfft! Tak paham ke…”Baju surfing dik, ada?” “Owh…takde…”
Hubby told me that this is not Malaysian culture, so they might not supply it. True enough, as I can’t find it in KLCC or MidValley.

I tried my luck and went into Ripcurl.
“YES! THEY HAVE IT! This pattern, size 10.” Still, I thought I might fit it.

FOOK! KETAT! “Size 12 please?”

“Ini saje yang ada…” PFFTTT!!! Whyyyyyy?! Whyyyyyy?!

I walked out in disappointment and dissatisfaction. Dah la gemuk, takde pattern plak tu! Sob..sob…
I told myself, let’s get a pair of Levis.
Browsing through the rack, size 23, 24, 25…AND WHERE THE HELL IS SIZE 28??? No…mmm…29??? Okay! 30???

I heard the same statement “Ni je yang ada…”

I walked in pain…heartbreak…cursing the premium outlet…ignoring that I have actually saved few hundreds from it.
We decided to walk back to the car and I sms-ed Janggel, so that they will have a clearer picture on how to find this place. Tell you what…THEY JUST REACHED LARKIN SENTRAL! Crazy photo scammers! Hahaha! (I thought of Anash masa tu…apa la dia buat…)
Hubby drove all the way. We dropped Lin at Seri Kembangan, and went back home.

Overall, I found this trip as “awfully tiring but fabulously exciting”. At least, hubby and I have gone through another level, by given ourselves a chance, from being a “Couple Traveler”, to be one of the “Alien Traveler TM”. (Wahhhhh terus trademark tu!)
