quite busy lately. This make me takes some time to write regarding our
last vacation. We spent 3D2N for our latest trip at Bukit Tinggi and
Padang (23 July – 25 July 2009). This had been our 3rd time together
been in Indonesia (4th or 5th time for me myself) and was the first time
for Sue and Faizal (our best friend) been in Indonesia (just like
couple honeymoon present for us). We had planned to go since the end of
December last year. The return flight ticket just only cost us RM 70
(including the tax) perperson. Very cheap rite?


arrived at LCCT at 12.30 pm and having lunch at Marry Brown. The flight
departed from LCCT at 2.30 pm (after delayed for about 15 minutes) and
we arrived savely at Minangkabau airport at 3 pm Indonesia time. After
we met the tourist guide (or supir they called it here), we headed
straight to Bukit Tinggi. From the airport it took about 3 hours to
arrive Bukit Tinggi. The petrol cost you about Rp 169276 or RM 60.61
(according the current foreign exchange rate). During the journey we had
called on a few places such as Puteri Minang, Pariaman, Puncak
Kiambang, lots of shop houses specialized in embroidery and sulam goyang
telekung. One of the attraction was the waterfall named “Lembah Anai”
that have Telaga Tiga. According to the tourist guide name Saiful Ikhlas
(he said that he is one of saiful apek good friend heheh), he mentioned
that the water from Telaga Tiga could give us energy and it is believe
that could make us “look younger” by cleansing our face.. hehe We could
see that most of the houses are using “parabola” to get good channel in
their houses.. will be many channel..what a shock coz in Malaysia the
government didn’t allow us to use it.. .Huhu On the way to Bukit Tinggi,
we learned lots of words that you could use or couldnt use at Bukit


Do learn yourself ok:

(sudu) = means KISSES so better use Senduk teh (for teaspoon), Senduk
Makan (for tablespoon) & Senduk nasi (for bigger scoop)

STRAW = they don’t understand this words, better to use PIPET

KAHWIN = is prohibited to be use in local languages coz it means &%#*@! (you understand what i mean rite?) better to use NIKAH

KONA – terengganu languages (Corner) = is also prohibited to be used coz it means prostitution

made stopped at few shop houses and boutique and bought few cloth for
our sibling for this coming hari raya.. We arrived at Ambun Suri Hotel
at 8 pm and take our bath and straight away went to cultural
performances nearby the hotel. After finished the performances we return
to hotel and had enough rest.


wake up early had breakfast and ready to check out. We headed to Hjh
Rosma house to see how the sulam goyang is done. During the journey we
had stopped by at

1. Soraya Bordir
2. Butik Annisa (the owner actively had business at Malaysia and she come to Malaysia once 1 month)
Satu Karya (pandai Sikek) – where they made hand made songket and Pak
Lah our late Prime Minster also bought the songket from here for a few
thousand for his akad nikah to Jeanne. I also have tried to made songket
here and the process was quite hard. Need to count one by one threads..
4. Pasar Bukit Tinggi – here you could buy everything and the
price is cheaper, the bargaining power is better than other places and
you could get the cheapest price here at very good quality item.
Pondok Flora – very nice Rumah Makan (restaurant) with beautiful paddy
fields scenery.. very nice food and environment to relax
6. Istana
Pagar Ruyung – we went but Saiful said that the palace is still in
progress becos it had been on fire in 2007 after been catch by strong
thunder and storm after heavily rain.
7. Si Linduang Bulan Palace –
This palace name but it is very nice structured even though it skewness
made me feel excited to go inside. Hehe
8. Makam Raja at Pagar Ruyung
9. Again at Annisa and Cany Boutique

do stopped by at few places on the way back to Padang but I could’nt
remember all those names (may be if you have time you could come to our
house and watch the video that we recorded) At nite we had dinner at
Rumah Makan Pak Datuk.. good food at reasonable price all food are Nasi
Padang style. We arrived at Pangeran City Hotel and I had a body massage
at Hotel because so exhausted. It only cost you for RM 30 per hours.
Cheap rite?

activities and we decided to have a walk to Pasar padang becos it is
just nearby the Hotel. We went for our last shopping here and bought few
items here. Then we return to hotel and ready to go back coz our flight
was at 2 pm from Minangkabau Airport and reached LCCT at 4 pm. We had
not enough time to visit Lobang Jepang and Malim Kundang area that had a
story tale about a man who become stone near the beach. Insyaallah next
time we come back have a visit there. There are some photos during the
