From Malaysia in Haste (going back to Singapore)

quick journey of a budget DIY 1st-timer / solo backpacker
january 19-22, 2011 thursday to saturday

objective: to visit the best tourist spots that fits my taste and budget accordingly.
additional tasks: to conquer the G-MAX reverse bungee jump and witness thaipusam festival

around 1430H i decided to leave batu cave and went myself in haste due bus travel to singapore from kuala lumpur has an average of 5 hours and my flight schedule is around 0030H of the following day. and its afternoon so traffic jam must be avoided not to mention i don't know sg's mrt sked last trip at night.

ignoring the tiring over 500 steps made downstairs from the cave, i have to get fast from ktm to bukit jalil for bus going to singapore. from ktm station, then alight in bank negara station then transfer train to sri petaling and alight to bukit jalil station (lot of transfer, printing mrt map from the internet was very helpful). around 1600H i arrived to the terminal, paid 39myr(565php) for a double decker again. at 1700H farewell malaysia!

there was 2 stop-overs made between the national road and we spent for 15 minute break for the 1st one and 2nd one around 20 minutes. around 2145H for crossborder checkpoint, brought my backpack with me, went to immigration line, very fast and efficient service after 15 minutes i'm already in my bus again. after 5 hours of journey, i'm in singapore once more.

Going home:
2230H i'm already in golden mile complex. run myself to mrt lavender station, at 2320H rode an mrt going to changi terminal 2 ( i made it on its last trip, whew!). past 0000H i arrived in terminal 2 tehn aboard to shuttle bus going to budget terminal. departure time changed to 0200H (delayed by 30 minutes). around 0530H just landed on the naia t3 airport and at 0600H aboard airport shuttle bus bound to edsa-pasay for php20.

haayyzz, what a trip !!! ^_^

Remarks:
1. buy ez-link card for more comfortable transfer on eany kind of mode of travel.
2. filipino's are everywhere in singapore .... try to mingle with them and somehow ask for the best tip on your trip.. we should be proud of them !!
3. as much as possible plan you visit on off-peak days to satisfy the the amount you paid, less hassle, to avoid the line like USS.
4. you must go as early as 0700H in petronas tower especially if you are on a tight itinerary in kuala lumpur.
