Cruise 6

DAY 6, 3 July 08

We rest at the lounge while waiting for our turn to get down from the ship. There is a big crowd and it takes quite some time to clear. Locqect is already sleeping at the couch because of the long wait.

From Singapore, we take a taxi to Johor Bahru and Buya takes his car from his friend. We have a great seafood at Melaka!

Cruise 5

DAY 5, 2 July 08

From Phuket, the ship sails to Port Klang, Malaysia and then to Singapore. Only those who have informed the Star Cruise that they want to stop at the Port Klang can go down. The rest will stop at Singapore.

There are many activities / shows going-on the ship. We are all sitting at the front part of the hall. The MC asks for volunteers and we point to Tawaf's eldest brother, Lufi. All volunteers are taken to the back of the stage for quite a while. Then there is the spotlight and they parade in-front of us. Hahahaha! All of the guys are dressed as women! Then each of them has to do a performance which the audience will rate and choose the winner. It is sooo Funny!!! Guess what, Lufi is the winner!!!

Cruise 4

DAY 4, 1 July 08


Back in Malaysia, we've emailed Sak that we are coming to Phuket and we've requested him to fetch us at the jetty with a van. Sak was the taxi driver who brought us around Phuket during our honeymoon in 2005. He gave us a great service and a great price, which is cheaper than any other taxi drivers. Thus we decide that anytime we go to Phuket, we would ask for his service. We've also recommended him to a few of our friends who went to Phuket for vacations. They too said that Sak's rate is lower than the others.

At first, Sak was reluctant to fetch us because he said that there will be many taxis waiting at the jetty and he doesn't want to get into trouble with the taxi drivers. We persuaded him and said that there will be 9 of us and it would be troublesome to take separate taxis to accommodate us, thus he agreed :). This time he brings his wife along.

Cruise 3

DAY 3, 30 June 08


Yesterday we ate Western & Italian food, today Buya wants to eat Asian food. There is also Roti Canai. Lufi is still asleep in his room.

This ship is huge and we can barely feel the waves. Occasionally when we are about to sleep and the waves are very strong, then we do feel it a bit.


It seems that the favorite activity on board is eating :)

We are already reaching Penang. We can choose to stay on board or go down to Penang. There are small boats to bring the passengers to shore. The cruise will only continue to sail in the evening.


At the jetty, there are many taxis waiting for passengers. Since Penang is Tosh's hometown, we decide to walk away from the crowd & take a bus instead. The bus is empty! We go to Komtar & Perangin Mall to shop. After shopping, we do what we usually do, EAT!

We are eating at Padang Kota Lama, Penang and we have a beautiful view of our ship.

We are back on the ship.
