Where I Sleep & What I Eat

The first thing I bought in Labuan. The first visit, the first thing that I bought and also the first time of buying it in my life...

DSC06298
Malaysia Prepaid Handphone Starter Pack. One thing that is "SIOK" about Malaysia, Cheap bill! Spent 5Ringgit for the starter pack and it comes with 10Ringgit recharge card. It doesn't cost much to make international call too!

Then, to find a place to sleep at night. Wasn't that familiar with the place that we don't know where to find a cheap deal hotel to hop in for the night. And I don't get to see this by the roadside like what I encountered in Brunei.

B$30.00 per night!!!

Heard that, there is one boss in Brunei who opened a hotel at there. So me & wee give there a try. By the time we got there, we're wrong!

Paid RM128 for the room.

Well, not RM128 for this room.

DSC06304
It's double single bedroom.

One of the nicest thing about this hotel is its location, it just located around the town area. With less than 5minutes walk, we can reach the port. There are lot of shop houses and restaurants around the hotel too.

Right around the hotel, there are supermarkets.

And some drinks! Alcohol in Labuan are cheap because it's duty free. Even cheaper than the mineral water that I bought for RM8.70 per bottle. Hahaha! It's EVIAN, that's why.

Definitely one nice place to take photo at...

More people mean more FOODS! We're going to one place to eat seafood that Wee want to bring us to. But when we reach there, it's closed due to the holiday! Asked this to taxi driver who is MR.AGUS! He said that during holiday when there are lots of people visiting, the shops are closed. But during the daily day when there aren't much people visiting, they open the shops and wait for customer!

Lastly we ended at...
