Gotta get back to my usual blogging schedule. So, not wanting to feel left out for this December holiday knowing almost everyone is heading somewhere for vacation, I asked if Bobby wanna layan my randomness. We thought of Labuan and K.K., either one. Then everyone told me there’s nothing much to do in Labuan (which is true) but, both Bobby and I had never been there.
Therefore I suggested to Bobby, why not both? We can take the ferry to Labuan, then another ferry trip to K.K. That will be fun. I mean, knowing me.. I’m always game to try anything when it comes to travelling as people may put it, I’m low maintenance when it comes to travel. And I’m super glad that Bobby super layan me when I make silly decisions.
So on 13th December (Monday), Bobby’s dad sent us both to the Muara ferry terminal to catch the 8.30am ferry.
To cut the hassle, I’d already bought the tickets a week ago from a travel agent in KB. Bobby was just registering, I think? The ticket costs BND15.00 per person.
Say, the boat was supposed to be depart at 8.30am.. but… we waited and waited and waited… for more passengers to get on board, then when we finally left the port, 2 minutes later, the boat pusing-balik because one of the passenger had problem with her passport. Around 5 immigration officers came on board and talked/checked with her.
Hence, the boat only depart at about 9.20am.
Almost an hour of delay. Sigh…..
An hour and 15 minutes later, we finally reached Labuan.
We forgot to take our seasick pills and there was couple of time I nearly puked. Thank goodness I didn’t have any breakfast else sure puke till 7 colors.
Checked in to Tiara Labuan Hotel.
Well, it is pretty far from the town as compared to Grand Dorsett and Waterfront but hey, look at it. It was so so so pwetty, and they actually provide free shutter service till 7pm.
Popped 2 seasick pills and off we go!
The thing is, when we boarded the boat, we’re told “free seating”, so… we sat freely la~
To be honest, I find the lower deck nicer and more spacious too.
I ordered a glass of Frosty lemon tea and black pepper lamb pie, Bobby… marble cheese cake and durian cheese cake. Now you say who is the sissy one.
Total bill, RM120 for two. Way cheaper than those seafood restaurant around out hotel we checked.
We’re already in Centerpoint’s food court, ordered our food already till I talked on the phone with my mother. I cried all the way from Centerpoint back to the hotel, packed our stuffs and got a cab and rushed to the airport.
It was 11am when we checked out and I knew the next flight back to Brunei from Air Asia is at 12.05pm. I kept praying and praying, crying, having all sort of questions in my head, it was just too sudden. My prayer was answered and I left Brunei International Airport at about 1pm. The rest, is history.
So yeah, Bobby and I now have phobia over vacation… And this, is my not-so-much of a super short vacation.
