I just spent a wonderful Chinese New Year with my family in Jiading,Shanghai-the place I born and grew up.It was quite cold there,but feeling warm in my deep heart.Every day was so busy,but meaningful.
My whole family visited my uncle’s home in Nanxiang,Shanghai.In the past,it’s a farming area.Now,with the development of the city,most of them have their new houses to live.My uncle and his family now live in a rural villa which is very large and comfortable. Continue reading →
I joined the company trip of my wife to Malacca for the past weekend.That’s the first time to be there and I found that Malacca is really a city where all have ancient feelings.
My wife and I like to visit Jonker Walk(Jalan Hang Jebat,see the map below).In fact,we went there 3 times in 2 days.I would say that the view there day and night is totally different.At the daytime,the street is quiet,but there are still some souvenir shops and restaurants opening,including the very famous ‘chicken rice ball’;at night,all street stalls start the business along the street and the linked area.Locals and foreigners can always get their fun somewhere.
AirAsia worked out a new look website which improves the overall layout compared to the old one.All functions have been clearly indicated in the first page and so we could easily and quickly do our things within several clicks.
The latest updates from AirAsia are all gathered in the centre.We could get the promotional information here and know the future plan of the company from the latest news.
Also,the value added services have been listed in the left bar there.The fresh design saves dozens of time to place our extra orders after bookings completed.
You could find the official introduction for this new website here.I feel this is a nice change.What do you think about?
The newly initiated public transport panel in Malaysia announced some plans to temporarily solve a few of issues on particular routes.Except expanding the current LRT routes,the panel works with RapidKL to open up some BET(Bus Express Transit) and BRT(Bus Rapid Transit) services by steps.
For this initial introductory stage, BET will run at 15 to 20-minute intervals during the morning and evening peak hours. Frequency and service periods will be increased at a later stage depending on the demand for each route.
My two cents:
I’m happy to see that the government finally realized the importance of national public transport system.As my view,a higher efficient public transport system could save a lot of money and time for the residents and indirectly improve the quality of life as people may not be necessary to buy a private car and so no expenses on petrol as well.Everybody likes less congested roads,right?
Hearing of buying new trains from Transport Department as well as KTM Berhad,finally we could see the true face of the new trains.
The new train is made by Hyundai Rotem with Mitsubishi design and will be used on Kuala Lumpur-Ipoh route of ETS(Express Train Service) initially.The designed max. speed of this train is 160km/hour,however,it will only be running at 140km/hour maximum in the current route,spending 1 hour and 55 minutes for the single trip.
The new train is a new hope for a lot of people.At least we now know that KTM is doing something improving their services.I just wonder know when they want to increase more trains for existing commuter services and when the ETS will be extended to Penang/Singapore.
I think for all I mentioned,I still need to wait for longer time.
I’m talking about AirAsia.Yes,it’s introducing free tickets for travelling from 1 May – 30 Oct 2010.Hurry up!The seats are limited and the booking will open at 0001 hours of 11 November,2009 until 15 November.
The fabulous bargain needs you to pay some small tax and server charges for a wonderful dream trip.I really wish AirAsia could provide that promotion for Chinese New Year too,but I know that is very impossible.Waiting for the miracle.
After the discussion with my parents and future parents-in-law,my fiancée and I chose February 18th,the fifth day after Chinese New Year,holding our wedding event in Shanghai,China.We need to book the air tickets as soon as possible because that is a hot period for travelling.The fares have been increased compared to the normal days.
If you could afford a higher price in order to get some convenience and perhaps better services,Malaysia Airline will be the nice choice.The return ticket is pricing RM1700-RM1800 inclusive with all charges recorded on November 3rd,2009.
Guys,please inform me your schedule of your flights before November 15th,2009 so that I could have enough time to let travel agent give some offer to me.Thanks.
Though there are still 107 days to go,I think I’d better to make all things on the track first because I don’t want to regret anybody in the wedding event.
