Mini Reunion Trip 1

 › entry 2 of 3 › view all entries

I arranged a reunion with about ten of my old College friends who have not seen each other for many years, then when I joined facebook I traced most of them over two years, Since that we all still keep in touch, but I never found my best friend before I had arranged this first Reunion. She was still lost to me. All my other college friends always text or chatted by phone, the idea of a reunion was suggested  and now we plan to make this in Singapore, of the 10 people that were asked only 3 could make the trip. So now we have just a “Mini” Reunion, but all 3 of us agreed we would go for 3 days. So I got to work on the internet and booked all the return tickets, I am luck to find promo tickets  by Air Asia. The choice of hotel was to be made later when we arrive in Singapore, that way we can agree on our hotel together.

.. So I managed to prepare all this and hope everything is ok, unlike my trip to Singapore last year with my sister, which was very stressful and now makes me nervous at the memory.

It  was arranged  that we are all to meet at Soekarno Hatta International Airport in Jakarta, on the day that we are due to flight to Singapore, because we live in difference cities in Indonesia...I was first here at Soekarno, so I could meet and greet my friends... when this happened we all hug together lots, with much love, laughter and plenty of chatting :) talking about everything from college etc. We are so happy to be together again...Now it’s time to save all this chatter for Singapore and go and check in, then continue to immigration  before waiting at the boarding our gate, it’s not long before we are presenting our boarding passes to get on the aircraft for our Singapore Mini Reunion to start properly.

..but still there is a  2 hours flight before arriving in Singapore, but this is made all the shorter by the fact we are onboard together still ( far no nightmares of last years trip...hehehe).

On Arrival in Singapore, one of my friend asked me, Is it possible for us all to go Malaysia from here?  We talked about this as we leave the Airport  and we decide to change our trip, also because we haven’t booked a hotel in Singapore and we are just the three of us...we can do as we like. It was lucky  I didn’t book the hotel in Singapore . I said of my friends “I never tried go to Malaysia before by bus from here”  but we can try...Ok then!..but if wrong I hope you understand.

..So we agreed take a taxi to Bugis terminal station  in the city, then to take bus to  Kuala Lumpur, the journey takes us 2 hours then we must stop at the Port immigration at the bridge crossing from Singapore to Malaysia. We must take our luggage...we are lucky not bring lots, so its easy to carry around. It took around 40 minutes to have our passports and the luggage checked and fill out immigration forms, there is a bit of a problem because our bus did leave without I confused, so I asked the people how to get to Kuala Lumpur, They said “take a bus to Johor terminal station then continue with another bus”, once across the bridge then we must stop again at immigration in Johor, Malaysia. Then we to continue to Johor terminal station and  change bus so to continue onwards to Kuala Lumpur, where we stayed 2 nights.
..we must do this all again on return  to Singapore, but this time the bus didn’t leave without us :)

Our trip in Singapore not much to do because my friends just want to do shopping and more shopping, so I just took them to Orchard Road Area where there are many shopping centres, then we went by train to Merlion city which took 30 mins, here we look around the nice area with big buildings etc.
