Journey changed to 23th…

Because of some reason, my flight to NZ changed to 1st of april…
To avoid any changes, I decided fly to Malacca first, and I can go SG anytime by bus~

After another price comparison, 
I found that there is promotion for the ticket from Sibu to KL on 26th of April~
And I’ll be Life Game in Sibu when 23rd to 26th…
So 23rd will be the beginning of my Journey~

To be strict, it started on midnight of 22nd…
Because the camp start on 11 morning of 23rd, and the journey to Sibu is about 8 hours…
So I had to take to latest bus from Miri which was 10pm on 22nd with my friend…

At first I was thinking to use MTC Express for Sibu Trip, but unfortunately it don’t provide night trip…
So I took a bus from Vital Focus Group… (forgot the name of bus…)
My comment is, the seat provided is too small!!!
Especially for the people with long leg, like me…
I had to put my leg on the walkway so that I can have a conform trip~

After 7 hours, the bus arrived Sibu…
Although it reached earlier than schedule, this provide me a chance to watch of Sibu night scene~

Next, I spend my time in Life Game…
I really thanks God for planning this camp as the starting of my journey!

2pm on 26th, I back from campsite to Sibu…
Since the flight in 9pm, so I made a visit in Lau Memorial…

Because of price to Airport for Taxi and Public Bus have a huge different (RM2 vs RM35)
And I still have a tone of time to spend, I decided use the public bus to airport…
As we know the public transport in Malaysia is really bad, especially in east Malaysia…
This will be a big challenge to me!

After asking, I knew that “Sibu Jaya” bus will pass by the airport~
But after the bus travel for 1 hour, I still didn’t see any sign of airport…
The outer view turning rural and the airport signboard was disappeared~
I start panic and asked a uncle behind me…
He told:”still have 30 minutes drive”
I felt relieved with the answer and enjoy the rural scene around me~

5 minutes later, finally I saw an airport sign “Airport 4km”~
Actually the bus is using a old route, so there have no sign of airport for a few distance…
The bus dropped me at the airport junction and I have to walk about 200m to airport~
200m is nothing for me since I am still young! (Another reason is 200m save me RM32)

9pm flight, 11pm reached KL, 1am bus, 2.30am reached Malacca…
Tonight gonna be a long night for me…
Basically I couldn’t sleep at all because timing is extremely important!
But Thanks God for giving my laptop and some bread brought from Sibu to survive…
打发时间的伙伴们,Buddy that spend time with me

Good Bye Sarawak! See you in August!

Journey Start from 5th of April~

Flight ticket to NZ will be the first thing I need to be done…
Since I have insufficient fund and the trip is that far…
Budge Airlines Will be my first Choice~

Things I consider are:

  1. Less transit is better

    Because of luggage fee,
    transit/airline change too much will also increase the luggage fee~

  2. Transit time have to be short

    For Malaysia normally we travel to NZ via Australiua…
    If the transit time is long, I have to spend some money for food…
    In Australia, all food are more than 10AUD which mean RM30+
    It’s not worth to spend in Australia~

After research, the best way to travel was : Miri>SG>NZ
there was a direct flight from SG to NZ, which mean less transit…

Basically, the Budget Airline I chose was:

AirAsia_Com_HZ

Jetstar-Logo-WEB-Master-For

Yerterday, I found that 5th of april was the cheapest Air Ticket…
And today Air Asia have promotion for Miri>SG,
So I booked the flight from Miri>SG on 5th of april early in the morning…

Today, JetStar has another promotion for to flight to NZ!
All the Ticket become cheaper, and only the 5th of april remain same!
My heart is really……… (Un-Describable)

Now I have the ticket from Miri>SG…
If i choose the flight to NZ on 5th of april, I have to pay 70 SGD more.
(Actually this was the price I’ll pay if there was no promotion…)
And the 5th of april flight have to transit is Melbourne for 6 hours…
If there are any expenses, it will be 3 times to RM!

If I change the flight to earlier…
Then i’ll have to burn the Miri>SG ticket (RM99)
and also maybe my Life Game Camp Fee (RM130)
It not a wise choice~

Finally, I decided stay in SG for 1 days…
Then take the flight to NZ on 6th of April~

Conclusion:

Flight Time Amount
MIRI > SG (Air Asia) 2 Hours RM99
(Luggage excluded)
SG > NZ (Jetstar) 10 hours 443SGD
(Included Luggage and food, it is impossible for me to stay hungry for 10 hours!)

The total flight ticket cost me about RM1200!
It was almost half of my saving…
Look like I have to work hard when i reached there~

After so much struggling, finally come out with the conclusion

5th of april will be the beginning of NZ Jouney
It’s time to prepare myself, and left everything to God~

And what I learned is…

Tickets of Budget Airline are changing all the time, must make a choice wisely!
