Bags ready, bus fully packed and off we go.
I sat all alone at one row on the bus. The bus was spacious enough that most of us had two seats just for one person. One seat for me and the other for my bags. Not a good way to start knowing other people though.
The tourist guide on the bus was a young woman named Farhana. A bubbly and talkative person who knows Malaysian culture inside out. It was a very interactive session with her. And for one being only 18 years old and doing this touring guide as a part-timer has really surprised me! Kids nowadays seem to grow up maturely so fast! I faintly remembered what I did when I was 18 years old and believe me, finding a part-time job was not one of them. =p

When we finally reached our destination, I was still drowsy from sleep that by the time I was fully awake, we were already sitting at the lobby of the resort and waiting for our names to be called out. Ms Amelia was passing out our keys into groups of four.
My house-mates were going to be Pamela, Rose, and Olivya. And we were roomies for two nights in a row.

With those prices, I could only imagine on what kind of people that stayed here. If I were to meet a millionaire as a potential husband, this could be the perfect place. Haha. But I honestly think that I'lll NEVER afford such accommodation and suddenly feel blessed for getting such an opportunity via MSS2011.
