Malay Version – Trip To Gold Coast PermulaanThe story begins when,,,
Shazmeer is the person responsible to invite me to join his trip to the Gold Coast. This is because, AirAsia, Low Cost Airline in Malaysia offering only RM850 per pax return ticket AirAsia X from Kuala Lumpur to Gold Coast. Since it is a very attractive offer, I do not think too long, just agree with Shazmeer plan. Without the long wait, Shazmeer buy 2 adult tickets with MasterCard him. Its confirmed, Shazmeer and I will fly to the Gold Coast, Australia soon.
Because we buy tickets AirAsia X to Gold Coast in May 2009 and scheduled our trip in February 2010, I have so much time to plan my budget. I keep some of the money I receive salary every month and in the last 9 months, I managed to raise about RM3, 000 for land arrangements budget, Yeay!
Actually, it was a bit worried about Shazmeer commitment because he was always busy with daily chores and his deadline. I am sure, if I was the only one traveling to the Gold Coast, I would cancel the trip. There is no point for me to go there alone.
A month before the trip, I applied for the ETA to get to Australia from the Australian Embassy Online. Thank God, it was approved very quickly. But Shazmeer only apply one week prior to departure. Thank God it has also been approved. Fuhhh! If not, he also had to cancel the trip. What a waste.
On departure, our journey began on Friday afternoon. We took a bus AirAsia from KL Sentral to LCCT Terminal and savely check in 2 hours early, 8:00pm. Our flight was scheduled at 9:30pm and we savely arrived at Coolangatta Airport at 7:05am next day, local time. I can not believe we are in Australia.
