This last week in October 2010 has been a very extreem mobility for me. Travelling to Singapore for business purpose from sunday to wednesday, then continue with Lombok from thursday till sunday again. This is the story:
1. Singapore Trip 24-27 Oct’10
Departing from CGK by SQ 9.20 Jkt time, arriving at Changi around 1 and half hour later. This is my 4rd time in Changi, but my first time to be able to have time for fun and photo hunt. After exchange my currency, then we hopped in a reguler taxi to get to the hotel. This time, the hotel was Grand Pasific (formerly Allson Hotel), located in Victoria Street. Quite different from M Hotel , the one I stayed on another visit, this Grand Pasific standard room was not as spacious as M Hotel standard room. But it’s ok, I could not choose otherwise anyway. Still I enjoyed my stay there, coz Grand Pasific was located closer to the city life, than M Hotel that was closer to office life. Taxi from Changi to the hotel was cost 17.6 SGD.
As soon as I got to my room, I got ready to do some city sightseeing. Because I wanna know more about the city, so choose not to use taxi, but MRT and bus. The MRT card was cost 12 SGD (5 SGD for card value plus 7 SGD for the transportation cost). This card can be used for MRT, Bus, and Taxi that belong to SMRT company. For timing check on SMRT web. There are total 7 taxi company in Singapore, for detail find out in this web.
From Hotel we walked to Bugis Junction, to get to the MRT station. There was Bras Basah Complex acrros the Hotel. On the way to Bugis, we were passing by iLuma , such a nice mall. Sometime we went to City Hall station that located on City Link mall. From Bugis Station to Tanjong Pagar station was cost only 0.71 SGD. On the that first day we were also went to Mustofa to buy some souvenirs and chocolates. We were having dinner at Raffles City together with some friends whom already been there.

2. Lombok Trip 28-31 Oct’10
Still felt so damned tired from last night flight, but this morning I need to get to Bandara Soetta (CGK), to fly to Bandara Selaparang (AMI). This time it was full-holiday. Using Taxiku to the airport via Tanjung Priok toll access to avoid any traffic jam. Still I got trapped in the traffic jam but the timing was fine, I got to the meeting point on time.
The group went for boarding and flight with Batavia Air 12.45 pm.

Capek ahh pake bahasa Inggris…. lanjut….
Nginep nya di Hotel Puri Bunga yang terletak di atas sebuah bukit di Senggigi.
Pemandangan dr kamar ke arah laut cukup indah. Dari hotel ke pantai Senggigi cukup menyeberang
jalan depan hotel (hati2 jalan ini pas belokan, sepi tapi suka tiba2 ada pengendara motor yang ngebut) terus
melewati pasar seni yang berada tepat di depan hotel Puri Bunga.
