Media FAM Trip Day 3 & 4 Medan Indonesia, Good bye Medan – Water rafting, Local cuisine & dance, Rika Bika, Ucok Durian, Medan Town, Indonesia McDonald & Iga Penyet
What we did in Medan, Indonesia during the Media FAM trip? Everyone gets wet. Not the “hanky panky”, but we had fun experience their water rafting. The last time I went to water rafting when I was in Gopeng, Perak for a media trip. Indonesia water rafting was an amazing experience and I like it!
I did something crazy. I jump from 8 meters high and trust me, it’s freaking high. Actually, I have a phobia with heights. At first I don’t want to jump, but once I reach at the top, then $#%@ it. I can do it. End up I made the jump. So proud of myself. Some people don’t dare to jump hahaha
I’m using my HTC One M9 Plus for a video recording and HTC Desire 816 as my Indonesia phone and internet surfing.
When talk about Indonesia cuisine, I prefer Indonesia cuisine more than Malaysia cuisine. For me, they are really delicious.
Right after the water rafting, we went back to the town and drop by to Rika Bika and Layer Cake bakery shop before our dinner. Trying my best to avoid just-wake-up face. The journey from water rafting place to Medan city took us 2-3 hours bus ride.
We are here at Rika Bika Ambon and Layer Cake bakery shop. One of the famous Layer Cake and some honey home made cake. It was so good. I regret I only bought one box.
I will talk more about Rika Bika Ambon and Layer Cake bakery shop on my next post.
Right now the road starting to get bad traffic jam. Heading to Pasar Ikan (Fish Market) but they don’t sell fish. They sell some shirt or souvenir etc. Suitable for those who want to buy some stuff and sell back in Malaysia.
I will talk more about Pasar Ikan on my next post.
Dinner with people from Fireflyz, Dinas and Indonesia travel agents. So, who else wants to go Indonesia with me again? The reason why I love Indonesia is because their people and culture. This is the local dance performance.
Thank you for the trip. It was really amazing and hopefully the rest of you will enjoy my video and photo as much as I have fun capture it.
With the dancer. I should thank to #HtcOneM9Plus #ultrapixels front camera features. I can’t stop Vlog and selfie. The camera so good!
Yes, I’m Hantu Durian. For those who know me, I’m crazy for Durian. This is not Mamak but this is Durian restaurant. The business lesson that I learnt from them is, quality is the key. Ucok is a man who started this business. It’s started with small stall and due to the good quality of durian, people keep coming back. End up he manage to run a huge restaurant. Furthermore, the whole street known as Ucok Durian.
My good friend from Fireflyz @dickynofandi brought us to the famous Ucok Durian. It’s not a buffet style, but you can choose what type of Durian do you want. Price ranges IDR25K – IDR50K. If the durian is not good, you can ask them to replace the new one. We go for IDR50K and it is so good. The fun thing, how they eat is, like Malaysian style of Mamak. So if you love Durian and you happen to be in Medan, this is the place you must come.
I will talk more about Ucok Durian on my next post.
We bought some hipster souvenir just located at the same place where we had our Durian. Trust me. The designs are so good.
I will talk more about it on my next post.
Before we call it a night, Dicky brought us around the town. Since it’s not a weekend, most of the shop is closed early.
During the trip, everyone keeps mentioning about “Sate, 200 tusuk makan disini”. Basically, it’s about the famous Indonesia horror movie. So that night, we went down to downtown to try their local cuisine, Satay. When it comes to travel, I do love food stall located along the roadside. Local food made by local with local experience.
I will talk more about Medan Satay on my next post.
I saw McDonald at the roadside and I can’t hold myself from to get a bite. So I had Burger Balado. Basically is just a beef burger with Balado (type of spice). Not that wow but not bad for the sake of experience.
Our last group photo in the airport. Starting to miss you guys.
Finally I manage to get my Iga Penyet in the airport right before I take off. However, I prefer Iga Bakar than Iga Penyet. The Penyet version is slightly dry.
I’m not sure if I’m hungry, but these are good.
My little boy that has been following me for quite some time. Kinda like it.
So, that’s all for now. Thank you once again Fireflyz for all the experience. So, what’s next? Stay tuned for my individual blog post!
Thank you so much Fireflyz, Dinas Indonesia and Rosmaidi (Mr Jocko) from Bloogers Media for the experience. Not forget to thank Puma as well for my outfit.
The next day I have to do a video shoot for Puma early in the morning and trust me. It’s so tiring. Do check out my Puma video and you can win yourself Puma T-Shirt!
What else is better than Hennessy Artistry Finale 2010 when I invited to experience an awesome Hospitality service from G Tower Hotel. Thanks to Rebecca and G Tower Hotel for the awesome experience.
I receive a call from Rebecca that she offer me to stay there. Since I need some rest (I mean proper rest) and enjoying my night, why not. Trust me, at the end, I still not enjoying myself. Why? keep continue my full post.
The moment I step in, the huge chili catch my attention. Can you imagine when the lobby itself damn nice right?
For those who do not know, GTower Hotel on Jalan Tun Razak redefines business travelling. Why I say so? I was been informed that they only have 3 floor for the hotel room which is it’s also a combination between hotel and office.
GTower Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. Tel : +603 2168 1919 Fax : +603 2168 1818 Email : firstname.lastname@example.org
GPS: N03 09′ 54 E 101 43′ 21
This is how the lobby look like. It is located at 11 floor and to be honest the receptionist is really friendly. I forgot the guy name.
This is how my room look like. Actually the reason that I cant enjoy myself like what I mention early is because I still spend my time in front computer for whole night rather than sleep. I has been told that the internet is really fast. Yes, I can’t racist that word. Unfortunately, the internet have a problem but the maintenance guy came to our room until late night just want to help us solve our problem. Trust me, they really done a good job and even the next day when the internet have a problem, the same guy came and help us.
I told Rebecca that I want see how the swiming pool look like since Jason, take a nice photo of her. Since I know Jason photography skills is good, I want to see by my own eyes how good it can be. Yes! It’s really nice. You can swim while enjoy the scenery. I believe at night will be better.
There also have Bridge Bar for some of the guest to chill around.
You no need to go all the way to Bukit Bintang to have nice drinks where you can enjoy it there. Can see my Crocs shoes? Guess what? The glass are BULLET PROOF!! Thick and strong enough to withstand tonnes of force like what Rebecca mention.
GTower Hotel is located right besides PNB building on Jalan Tun Razak and right opposite this clock tower!
What else will be better when I can enjoy my Italianies dinner with huge prawn as topping?
I went down to Kelantan during last Chinese New Year to celebrate my relative wedding. I did a quick research few well known gym in Kelantan and what caught me a surprise is a lot of gyms in Kelantan start their operating hours in the evening, Somewhow, I found Awesome Fitness open at 8am.
Sometimes it’s good to workout at different places. Different mood and at the same time I can make some new friends too. Glad that I manage to train few new friends in the gym. At least the know the basic workout and they can start somewhere.
Awesome fitness is one of the gyms in Kota Bharu, Kelantan that received a lot of good feedback. Located at Jalan Tengku Ahmad Panglima, Tanjong Chat, Kota Bharu Kelantan.
P/S: Photos taken with HTC Butterfly 2 (Full HD Mode) with a shaky hand since I did heavy workout.
My money is totally well spent for 3 hours chest day workout at Awesome Fitness Kota Bharu Kelantan. Total spent is RM12. RM5 entrance fees, RM5 whey protein & RM2 mineral water.
– Friendly staff.
– Affordable fees
– A lot of free parking.
– 60% complete equipment.
– Gym operation hours start from 8am (a lot of gyms in Kelantan start their operation hours in the evening)
– They have a small packaging of supplements such as amino acid, whey protein, mass protein, fat burner etc. (good for those who still planning to choose which supplements are good for them or even just want to know the protein taste)
– Locker does not have keys.
– Have to bring your own mineral water.
– Toilet 3/10 (normal type of house/office toilet).
– Equipment a bit rusty (so please wear your gym gloves)
– Gym bench kind of small and I have hard time to balance myself when I use weight lifting machine or dumbbell workout.
Elite 100% Whey Protein from Dymatize Nutrition. Chocolate flavors. Taste and smell quite good.
Fake Crocs or Original Crocs? Are you sure original crocs nice? That’s is what the normal question that I receive from a lot of people. Since I’m the official blogger for crocs malaysia, some of people thought that I will talk nice about the crocs even though it’s not. I still remember my 1st time bought the crocsband. Nah, I will talk about it next time.
For me, I prefer my reader who trust what I talk in my blog rather then a free stuff. Since some people might think that I just simply talk nice about crocs, I will show the prove why original crocs is nice! 20 Taylor Lakeside Campus College students prefer original crocs compare with the fake one because…
