Pulau Karimun-ster

First time Mak talking about Tanjung Balai, we all go like..”Where the hell is that place?”

Then Mak said the words ‘Jeti’- ‘Kukup’-‘Indonesia’- ‘Heaven of Shopping’
So we goes oohh and aahh..
And I straight asked hubby if I can join in, surprisingly hubby said yes.



I don’t feel any excitement of going since I am so busy moving in a new place.
Yes, we have already moved in to our new house.
No more mouse, water leaking and electricity black out like that.
And hoorey to not facing the intolerant house owner…bluwekk.
Pergi la kau dengan rumah kau yang ‘BEST’ sangat tu.


When the times comes, at first hubby reluctant to give permission to go, but since I have taken 2 days leave just to settle the moving out thingy, so hubby said yes.

**I love hubby to bits because he is so sporting. Wink wink

En Khairul Anuar siap hantar saya pergi ke Jeti Kukup lagi.
Sayang kan sangat kat dia..hikhik.

Saturday; 31 July 10

We arrived Jeti Kukup at 9.30, konon-kononnya Mak kata ferry sampai pukul 10.00.
Tapi lepas hantar passport, beli tiket, akhirnya pukul 11.00 juga kitaorg gerak.
Kukup Jetty

Ambil gambar macam nak rak, sekali naik ferry ada rasa macam sea-sick pula.
Tulah berlagak sangat, siap gelak-gelak tengok Mak minta pil mabuk laut.
Tapi tak teruk sangat, nasib baik.



11.45am
Location: Jeti Tanjung Balai, Pulau Karimun.

Yeay, dah sampai.
After check in at immigration and what not, while waiting for the others (we come in group) Mak did talk to one of the officer and asking what and where is the best attraction here?

The idea of how Tanjung Balai, Pulau Karimun looks like


The officer gives us this look and smile;
‘Enggak ada apa-apa di sini ibu’
Mak asking the same question and he answered;
‘Disini kalau mahu makan Nasi Padang yang lazat saya boleh tunjukkan tempatnya’

We heard with disappointment.
Bajet macam pergi Jakarta ke Batam ke..hampeh.

After all finished their things, we all walk by foot to our hotel.

The 10 Minutes walk from jetty

We set foot at the first hotel but disappointed when they said that hotel is not the hotel that we going to stay because it haunted.
So, we walk again about 15min, barulah sampai tempat penginapan kami.


Tempat Penginapan; Hotel Himalaya.
Lepas letak barang semua, perut dah mula panggil nasi dan makanan sedap, jadi semua berkumpul balik untuk pergi lunch.



Lunch hari pertama; Nasi Padang.
Owwhh sungguh eksaited.
Owner restaurant asked us to masuk makan dalam bilik sebab ‘Didalam dingin, bu’”
Hahahaha..dingin eh.

They all will hidangkan all the lauk for the day, and will counted food that we touched only.
I still remember that the waitress blur when we asked for Coke.
When we rephrased Coke with Coca-Cola, then only she nodded.
I asked for the famous Teh Botol only.
We really enjoyed the food sebab memang tengah lapar.

Nasi Padang for lunch; Nyummy
After lunch the tourist guide showed us some kedai-kedai for us to spend.
We did a quick glance and hope that after doing some comparison, we can buy thing at the best price.
At 3.30 we jumped in this open air bus and off to beach.

I don’t want to elaborate on this.


Menaiki Bas berangin dan berhabuk..Haichuumm..



8.00am
Pasar Malam Jalan Perlabuhan


Pasar Malam Jalan Perlabuhan

We have our dinner there.
Teringin sangat nak makan Bakso, tapi dah habis.
When we asked Soto Ayam Nasi, they will give you one bowl of soto ayam and a plate of rice, with a lot of pink keropok on the top.
Semua makanan pun dia bubuh keropok pink tu.
Takda rasa apa pun, cuma crunchy2x jek.
We did some shopping that night.
I bought Iman Yusuf a pair of Sponge Bob t-shirt and trousers.



1 August 2010

Raining the whole day, from morning until we don’t know when, but one thing for sure; the ferry going back to Kukup has been cancelled.

Disaster..

Tapi kitaorang cool, tak pedulik pun.
When I smsed my boss telling him that I’m going to say that I will be on EL on Monday and he said Ok, kitaorg terus main Word Mole like nothing happen.
Sebenarnya malas nak fikir.
Tengahari yang renyai-renyai tu, we had again Nasi Padang..sigh.
We finish our pending shopping agenda, and at night we had Bakso and makanan goreng2x.
Malam tu tidur dan berdoa, agar cuaca esok akan cerah dan kami dapat balik.
Tak larat dah duduk sini lama-lama.;p





2 August 2010.

Kami dapat balik ke Kukup, Malaysia pada pukul 10.30 pagi.
Alhamdulilah.
Syukur alhamdulilah.
Sampai Kukup Jeti terus telefon EnKhairul Anuar suruh ambil.
Rupanya dia dah sampai.
EnKhairul Anuar excited bawa jalan jalan kat area sempadan Johor katanya.
Boleh dapat sijil kalau office bukak.
Tapi malangnya takda rezeki.
So, kami pun balik.


That is my experience going to Tanjung Balai, so if anyone asked whether you want to join to go to Pulau Karimun, you better think twice.



 
Ps/: I spend MYR 200++ for phone bills only..huaaaaaaaaaa..
