went to Kampar with yanting yesterday.
took a metrobus from Jaya 1, and then, off to KL Sentral.
Realize that it’s still early, as the departure time is 1300.
& so I went to have my java chips, and yanting had her Thai fried rice.
Now, it’s not necessary to drive all the way to Kampar.
Because, KTMB have shutter services every four hour from KL-IPOH-KL now.
1st train will be on as early as 5am, and the last train will be on 9pm.
It will take only 2 and a half hour from KL to Kampar. indeed convenient.
The pricing for tickets are as below:
economic class – RM9.
superior class – RM16.
it’s definitely more comfortable than you driving a car there.
oh yea, you do not need to stop by for toilet too. ;)
Reach Kampar KTM station around 3, yanting‘s parent came and pick us up.
Then, went to pick Fanny who travel by bus from Taiping up too.
Reach yanting‘s house, she took her car and fetch us out to look for houses for rent.
We 1st went to a house my relative recommended. The house is clean & the rental fees is very reasonable, just it’s a little too small to fit 6 of us. so yea.
After that, went to our future campus, THE UTAR KAMPAR, to have a look.
spot the hill/mountain behind it.
*PJ campus’s loo’s mirror is only enough for me to see my head, oh well, maybe head & neck.
fanny loves the color of the tables and chairs.
since there’s no mall, no starbucks, no club.
I would like to show my sincere appreciation towards yanting that fetch us around, without a single rant.
yanting, became our tourguide.
She brought us to a restaurant name YAU KEE that is said to be well-known with their delicious bread chicken.
After we filled-up our stomach, we headed over to the cyber cafe.
There’s 3686231355318763186318 cyber cafe alongside, and we went in to a cafe name Khakabo.
“A very decent cyber cafe – Khakabo. With good computers, comfy couch and reasonably priced at RM2 per hour”– mengleong
Spent one hour plus inside there, then, we continue our house searching journey, with yanting fetching us all around.
went to a few houses, not satisfied.
Fanny later on suggested us to travel in bike, instead of car, after he saw many travel around in bike.
what a brilliant suggestion, I haven’t been cycling for the past few years. wtf.
oh well, we later on really travel around in bike searching for “for rent houses”.
till 10 something, yanting and I start feeling hungry. cycle to an ice-house nearby to chill over there.
It’s rm4.50 @ snowflakes, ss15, but still, I prefer the one in snowflakes.
because, I think it tastes much more nicer & the portion is bigger though It’s a little more expensive.
Got back to yanting‘s house around 12am, and shyt, I realize I forgotten to bring my lens solution out. and again, without a single complain, she fetched me to the nearest 7-11 to get my lens solution.
I couldn’t sleep, that night, probably because it’s not my house, and I am not used to it.
I had actually force yanting and fanny to stay awake. I am terrible. lol.
Fanny ：“ 佳佳一天不睡觉，真的是会天下大乱。”
basically means, If I am not sleeping, there’s no peace.
The next morning, we went to look at the house for rent a few houses next to yanting‘s house. It’s a 3 storeys terrance house.
That house is big, spacious and clean.
most importantly, it’s almost fully furnished.
study table, dressing table, mirror, bed, bed sheets, dining table, tv, refrigerator, etc.
the toilet is uber clean too, me likey.
That house can fit 9 people, and is only rm800/month for the whole house.
why not? we quickly agree to pay the down payment for it.
& that ends our house-searching journey. ;)
the only thing is that, it’s a little far from our campus.
10 mins if we cycle to campus, perhaps.
Right after that, we went to eat.
yanting brought us to a pasar for breakfast, she says the food there is good.
it’s indeed cheap, but, not-so-tasty.
yanting’s prawn mee looks good.
with such huge prawns, it’s only rm3.50. ;)
I would say that food is kampar is cheap. It’s not as good as I thought it is. well, let’s see.
maybe, I will be able to “explore” some places in Kampar with finger licking good food later on.
some of the ramdom review of mine towards Kampar in this 2 days,
- Seafood-ish human with colorful hair are very common.
- Food are promisingly cheap.
- There’s neither Mcd nor Starbucks.
- Cows are everywhere. same goes to the bullshit/cow dung.
- The air is much more fresher and cooler in compare to Subang.
- Hills and lakes are everywhere.
- No shopping mall.Tesco is the only “mall”.
- The locals speak mainly cantonese/hakka.
- Cyber cafes in abundance.
- Taxi services are unavailable.
Arghh, I still love Subang.
I never stay apart with my family, and I know I over-depends on them, I really don’t know how am I possible to survive staying outside without my parents and siblings, and of course, my closest girlfriends. I kinda breakdown, mentally.
Fanny said I am too pampered at home, it’s time to learn to be more independent. maybe.
Well, around 1330, we, fanny and me said goodbye to yanting.
we departed from Kampar by then.
The smart ass us got down to the wrong station. instead of KL Sentral, we got down at Sentul. Then, we bought tickets to go to KL Sentral.
Only after that I realize that I can go back to Subang straight from Sentul.
I bought 2 tickets to Subang, after that only realize that Fanny is not going to Subang.
That’s not the worst yet, the worst is that I suppose to take the Port klang train to get back to Subang. but instead of that, I go in to the Seremban train with Fanny which he later get down at the KL sentral station. & me, I only realize that I am on the wrong train after Fanny got down. I don’t know where I am going to, simply get down at some random station.
I asked the guard for help, and get screw by that fellow because of my “carelessness”.
hello, I RARELY take train.
I start to get panic, and eventually dropped my tears.
It’s raining heavily and I am at the station alone with another woman. I feel so helpless, and so, I cried. stupid, I know. irresistable la!!
few minutes later, came another few malay guys that came near to me, smoking and smiling at me. wtf! I called Fanny, he asked me to get back to KL sentral, he will get back there and get back to Subang with me.
Bought ticket and rush in to the train back to KL sentral.
I am extremly lucky that day, I guess, when I get in, the train happened to have problems.
The door couldn’t close.
after much efforts of the staffs there, the door still remain unclosed.
they later on decided to let the train move with the door open.
This incident somehow cheer me up a little, looking at those people facial expression when they trying so hard to close the door up make me smile. I don’t know why.
There’s another angmoh in the train that seems to be rushing for meeting keep shaking his head when he knows that the train is facing some problems. but he eventually smile, when he saw me taking photo of it. just so.
I got back to KL sentral safely, and Fanny get back to Subang together with me.
Ensure that I am back to Subang in one piece. lol. thanks friend, that’s what people call the sweet responsible of a friend, perhaps. appreciated.
p/s – what’s the exact distance from jalan intan 2, taman bandar baru, kampar to UTAR?
