Travel: Off to Malaysia

2 Aug

I was planning to go to the states again this summer, but unfortunately my plans had to change cuz it simply didn’t work out. fortunately, my and my friends came up with a backup plan and this plan was Malaysia.

 Traveling to east Asia was never in my plans, simply because I knew there were many other places that I would rather visit, so I never really looked into it that much except of what people used to tell me about it. 90% of why we chose Malaysia was because for visa issues and availability, but after searching through it and planning everything, now im sure 90% of this plan is something I want, need and looking forward to.

I’m gonna be gone for 10 days, where I will be visiting Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi and spending 2 nights in Genting. I have no expectations except for what I have read and saw in pictures, but I would love it if you have any recommendations for me, whether for food, places to visit and things to buy.

As some of you already know that I do have a thing for airplanes and crashes. It’s a thing I have developed over the years, but it never really stopped me from flying anywhere I wanted. It’s just that recently more than 4 plane crashed somewhere or got missing, and non of them makes sense to me, which is kinda scary and makes me not look forward to it. I will be traveling on the Srilankan airlines, so fingers crossed.

What Happened to British Airways?

5 Years ago when I first visited the states, I went through London so it was only natural that I book through british airways since I was planning on staying a couple of days there. British Airways always had a good reputation for the service, and it was true, I really had a good trip at that time, but not this time.

Since I was going to san francisco, the options are a bit limited as I don’t want to have a lot of transits here and there, It was either the United Airlines, Emirates, or British Airways I guess, so I went for the last just because I was happy with it…5 years ago!!

To my surprise, the seats felt smaller this time (no i did not gain any weight :P), it wasnt as comfortable, and you get to feel that everything is old, the plane is old, the crew are old, and obviously the entertainment is old too! Everything seemed to be more limited.

Not only that, but the fact that you have to stop through London and get to be searched a lot and everything has to go though the security check more than once is just plain stupid. I have traveled to so many places and never got searched this much!!!

Too bad British Airways is definitely not on my list anymore, I used to really like it. On the other hand, people kept telling me how United Airlines is bad, well..my flight from San Francisco to New York was through United and I absolutely loved it! Next time I’m trying them.

 

Event: Red Bull 3rd Flugtag

25 Oct

Another year and another Flugtag happening in Kuwait. This is my second time attending the event (read about last year HERE) and I honestly had mixed feelings about it as it wasnt that great last year, but I definitely wanted to go to see how they changed and if there was something different.

To start with the invitation, it was probably the coolest part! I just appreciate cool invitations, which happened to be as an airline ticket with a boarding pass.

A good thing that happened this year is that they actually started on time, not like last year’s event. I was glad to see them bringing someone from outside to present the show, which happen to be Rayya who represent Scoop on MBC. I personally like her but some people find her irritating I guess lol.

Now, I do understand that we don’t have a lot of open space with facilities in Kuwait that they can use for this event, but I REALLY don’t think Marina is the right choice. It’s true its gonna be on their benefit as Marina Crescent is usually crowded on weekends which means they will have more people watching, but you can’t really ask people to stand and watch for 4 hours  with kids running around and people holding cameras! It’s true we were sitting in the VIP area, but we got a glimpse of that too.

Lets talk about the participants shall we?

I didn’t get the chance to take a lot of pics, but most of the teams have done a great job in building their “plane” or whatever the shape is! it seems they also spent enough time deciding on their theme and customs. However, 90% of them failed to actually fly!

Each team also had around 1 minutes before they actually jump to perform a show, where most of them danced on Gangnam Style, which was kinda funny :) Check out this video that we shot:

Weather? That day was not a good day at all. Humidity, windy every now and then, then it turned cloudy. We were not prepared for that, shorts were a MUST!

Overall, the event was better than last year I guess. I really hope next year they can figure out a better place to host it at, and maybe we would participate! who knows ;)

Thank you Red Bull team and thank you Wataniya!
