Myanmar Trip Yangon

Solo Backpack in Myanmar – Airport to the City

Last year, I went backpack on my own to Myanmar. I supposed to have a travel partner but the fella put-me-aeroplane without a single word.  If you are reading this, you owe me a good meal cause you belum pay for the flight ticket !! Pfft! LOL hahahahahaha

The flight took me 3-4 hours from KLIA2. If you’re planning to visit Myanmar, you need to have a Travel Visa. You can either do it online or at the embassy in KL for a fee of 50USD. It takes 3 working days though.

Once you reached the airport and passed the immigration. Remember to change part of your money from USD into Kyat (Myanmar currency -only available in Myanmar) as it is best to deal in Kyat on the street.

#CBBankthebest

From there, you can grab a cab from the taxi booth for around 8000 kyat to go to Sule (Sule pagoda – city center).

The first pagoda I saw.

I was lucky to be able to bump into a Burmese wedding when I was on my way to the city.

And Burmese people are very sporting lor, they even willing to pose just for me. 😀

……

Instead of the city centre or Sule, the taxi uncle had dropped me off at “Mile 10” at half of the rate as I wanted to visit the pagodas around that area before grabbing a no.51 bus to Sule which would cost me 200 kyat. #savemoney

Then, I found out the taxi uncle thought I was a Japanese as he…

I don’ know why but I didn’t deny it and decided to play with it and said my name was Akira and Sayonara to him. XD

This was the first Burmese pagoda I visited there. I don’t know the name though. Lol

Approximately an hour of lepaking at the pagoda, I went to take a bus.

In Myanmar, they don’t use the common numerical 1, 2, 3… system but instead their own symbol. So it will be best to ask the taxi driver for the Burmese numerical symbol or you can ask the people there about “Sule”. Do take note, most of them doesn’t speak English.

Le me in the bus. The locals were so generous, as they found out that I’m a foreigner they actually gave up their seats for me. #mukabukanburmese

Jeju: A KCON Experience

:: Part 1 :: Part 2 ::

It turned out the trip to Jeju is not only of nature and scenery but turned I get the chance to attend the annual KCON festival. KCON is an annual K-pop convention where there’s gonna be kpop concert and also stalls promoting and selling korean products.

The concert starts at 7 and we went there super early, 2 hours early, but it was okay as the place was occupied by many stalls.

Outdoor stalls

Korean people are super generous, they kept offering us sample of food to try.

If you’re there, remember to get any products that associated with their HallaBong Orange products like orange chocolate, orange biscuit etc. They are super duper delicious !

Indoor booths

There are even more booths inside the hall and it was jam packed with humans because of…

Seriously, no need to buy any gifts for friends anymore, they are giving bags and bags of snacks as long as you participate in their mini games.

There’s also a mini stage for rookie kpop group to perform.

Only problem is that the place is freaking hot.

Kcon Concert Main Stage

2 hours passed quickly in there and it was almost time for the concert to start.

Even more gifts. ^ v ^ so nice~

And apparently most concert in Korea are seated concert. For an old cat like me, this is a blessing, I cannot stand standing in a spot too long which is why I seldom go for concerts.

Look at this pretty LED bracelet, they gave us. So nice right but…

*cover my face*

Seriously lor, the whole row of us thought our LED bracelet was broken and we sneakily switched ours with those in the seats in front of us. XD

So cool lor, Everyone’s LED is in sync with the songs.

KCON just signed a 3 years MOU with Jeju island. This means if you come Jeju in 2016 and 2017, KCON will be here. ^ ^

So put this into your itinerary if you are a kpop fans and plan of coming to Jeju island as the concert ticket is only around RM30.

Cheap till cannot. XD hahahah

I Fell in Love in Jeju

Jeju Island is surrounded by a few other smaller islands. The biggest of them is called Udo Island which means Cow Island. To get there, we need to take a 15-20 minutes ferry.

It’s the start of the day so very semangat to take pic and pose around hahaha

 

The ride was super bumpy no thanks to the rough sea. It was super scary lor, just like a cat, I’m very afraid of water one. Then again, it kept us company. XD

 

Udo Flying Ice-Cream Peak

There are tour bus at the Udo harbor, so just hop on it, and it will ferrying you to the interesting spots around the island.

We don’t have any cliff in Malaysia, so when we saw this we were excited.

Although, the sky was cloudy but the view was still very pretty.

It didn’t stopped us to take lots of photographs.

Die die must take an emo-showing-my-hairbun-shot hahaha

Jeju Island is famous for their giant tangerines, so eventually you get to find tangerine ice cream.

Apa lagi buy and try lor…

but I forgot to do the conversion before I buy. Maiku, it’s the most expensive ice cream I ever had in my life. Must take a photo to memorize this moment.

By the way, this place is actually called Udo Peak but I named it Flying-Ice-Cream Peak because…

the wind was very very strong OAO!! My Ice cream kept getting blew away by it.

Wei, don’t like this, my ice cream very expensive one leh.

There’s two options you can choose to do there, one to walk up to the top of the peak with the lighthouse or walk down to the sea side. We chose the latter one as we did not have enough time to spent there.

This is such a good place to be emo. XD

Super-Hard-Cannot-Bite-Shellfish-Sashimi-Seaside

The bus then dropped us off at the side of the road.

It was a seaside with a lighthouse at the end. This place wasn’t as interesting as the Udo Peak but it was a good walk and we spotted some interesting stuff.

Some horses by the road. (P/S: They eat horse meat there.) One of my friends managed to hand fed them without permission. hahaha

Another is these! Fresh Sashimi! There was a shop with a lot of uncles and aunties inside. The rule of finding a good food is looking for a shop with a lot of customers. So we went in and ordered the smallest plate and it costed us RM120. – _ – *please kill me*

In case, you are wondering what are those, there are Abalone, Sea Slug and Sea Snail. If you’re there, don’t ordered them… because

they are freaking HARD! So hard that I didn’t get to bite off a single piece. 😐

I would suggest you to keep your money for the next dish.

Hallasan Fried Rice at Rodem Garden Restaurant, Udo Island

THIS IS THE BEST KOREAN FRIED RICE I EVER HAD.

The Hallasan Fried Rice is actually Spicy Pattaya Cheese Fried Rice.

First, you are served with Spicy Rice Cake. After you are finished, they will put rice on the same hot plate with the left over sauce and stir fry it, and topped it with plenty eggs and cheese.

So simple yet so good OMG! So gonna make this at home. Egg + Cheese + Fried Rice = Awesomeness

Remember to look for this restaurant, Rodem Garden Restaurant ^ ^

…by the beach..

..with a friendly Husky.

Fall in Love with Sangumburi

We went back to Jeju island after the Hallasan Fried Rice lunch.

They brought us to this park. It was there that I…

I fall in love….

with grass (lalang). Omg the place is just lovely!!

It’s just rumput lalang but it’s so pretty. Cincai take also cantik hahaha

All of us went crazy over there and starting to take photos here and there as if we never seen grass before. Actually, grass yes, but silver grass no. hahaha

Lucky got a blogger friend with me, so I can used her as model hahaha.

Tak tahan, i also joined in. “Annyeonghaseyo”

You only get to see this silver grass scenery during the Autumn. If you come during the summer or spring, it will be just normal green grass you have behind your house.

On the right side is the volcano crater but it is now covered with trees.

Samguburi, definitely a must visit place in Jeju. It is my most favorite spot of all the places we went to in Jeju.

Love this photo the most, it’s like the cover of a drama series hahahaha XD
