A Walking Zombie I Was In Semarang Airport

A travel blog entry by venoth


Last night after having a long chat and multiple laughs over what transpired over this trip, we did not realise time was flying and finally when we head to be it was already three am. Oh gosh, I knew that this morning was going to be very difficult for me.

Set the alarm at five am and when it rang, I wished I could just shut it off and …

Mc Donalds For Dinner In Semarang For A Change

A travel blog entry by venoth


It was an extremely long and tiring journey. We had a few toilet stops in between at petrol kiosks and also one tea stop. In total, the journey too us 4 hours. This additional delay was contributed by the heavy flow of lorries which it seems in Indonesia, start their journey after 6 pm when it is dark. The interesting thing I observed about heavy …

After all the hassle that we went through, finally we have set foot at the greatest and largest Buddhist Temple in the world, Borobudur Temple which was built in the 9th Century.

Express Lunch In Magelang

A travel blog entry by venoth

    A Basic Sleepover Hotel

    Reviewed Feb 19, 2012
    by (16 reviews) Kuala Lumpur , Malaysia Flag of Malaysia

    We found this hotel to be very basic, just good for overnight sleepovers and business people who hardly spend time in the room. There were certain issues we faced like room service not provided just because we did not pay a deposit (although the room was fully paid for before check in) and they had not even asked for this deposit when we checked in, very limited parking space and cramped foyer, out of beers etc. Otherwise, I would prefer Novotel any time. Just though of trying this for a change, but regretted.
