It's time to start living the life you've imagined.
First International Trip
Kuala Lampur, Malaysia - July 27, 2001 – Aug 8, 2001
We had an Exit row seat, so there was a lot of space in front of us. The stewardess were excellent. Bob was smoking at that point and he did sneak into bathroom to smoke. He didn’t get thrown off the plane, but got some dirty looks. We had a stop at TaiWon and he couldn’t wait to get to the smoke room.
After 18 hour flight and 11 hour time difference just off the plane we meet Harrace Lau and Fione Tan who rushed Bob to a TV interview.
Petronas Towers they were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004 and remain the tallest twin towers in the world
We got to the hotel and slept we then got Colon Saunders Chicken which tastes nothing like our Col Saunders Chicken at all
Dinner with Prime Minister. Ate Baby Octopus, fresh anchovies, Main course was a Sea Bass that they presented standing up with fins and tail spread out.
We then took a bus trip to Singapore
the bus pulled into a building and told us all to get off and take all of our belongs. The bus took off. It was a very strange feeling. I decided to go to the bathroom and was surprised to find this. Hole in the floor and a water hose… I was not much into squating, but I really didn't have a choice. I had brought my own baby wipes and was really glad that I had.
Finally bus returned, he went to pick up another driver. So we were off again
We went to a couple of malls and then tried to catch a bus on the way home. We probably walked for a good mile and finally got a bus that wasn't full and the next stop was our hotel.
malls are straight up. When light changes at an intersection. The intersections fills with people.
we both got in this rickshaw
Sri Mariamman Temple is Singapore's oldest Hindu temple. It is an agamic
built in the Dravidian style. Located at 244 South Bridge Road, in the downtown Chinatown district, the temple serves the majority Hindu Singapore…
The Sri Mariamman Temple was founded in 1827 by Naraina Pillai, eight years after the East India Company established a trading settlement in Singapore
WE then took a train back to Melaka. We got off the train and we needed to find a taxi to Melaka. We found someone to take us. It was getting dark and we just kept driving, we looked at each other and got a little scared, but finally made it to the hotel. It had a beautiful infinite pool and the next morning we went exploring, in the center of town every one in town was doing Yoga. Then they all went to their shops and opened for business.
A Must Visit Historical "A Famosa"
A Famosa is one of the most valuable ruins built by the Portuguese centuries ago. This place is another sought after attraction in Melaka that you should not miss if you are visiting Melaka.
“Flor De La Mar” Maritime Museum
The structure of the ship is actually a replica built according to the former Portuguese ship named “Flor De La Mar”. Centuries ago, the ship which carried a vast amount of Melaka treasures was on the way back to Portugal. However, accident happened and caused the ship to sink off the coast of Melaka. The construction of the museum according to this former Portuguese ship started in year 1990 and was opened to the public in 1994 after being officiated by Malaysia former Prime Minister, Tun Mahathir.
WE got a driver from the hotel and made it back to our hotel and home safely.
