I have become a frequent visitor to Kuala Terengganu due to personal reason. So far I’ve stayed in Hotel Seri Malaysia Kuala Terengganu and Felda Residence Kuala Terengganu. My stay at Hotel Seri Malaysia was less than 12 hours thus I don’t think I should write much about it. Maybe if my wife and I decided to stay there again in the future, I’ll take some photos and write about our experience there.
So, I bought a voucher from Traveloka for my 2 nights stay in Felda Residence Kuala Terengganu. For the first night, I was staying alone so I bought a room only voucher for RM87.75 whereas my second night cost me RM108.75 which comes with free breakfast for 2 pax.
The room also have free wifi; here is the link to my speedtest result or you may refer to the screenshot below. It is acceptable speed considering Unifi (Malaysian highspeed broadband package by TM) is not available in Kuala Terengganu yet.

I have some bitcoin sitting in my BTC Wallet doing nothing for the past several months so I decided to invest a portion of it in High Yield Investment Program (HYIP). Please note that I do NOT recommend investing your money in HYIP. The return is indeed much higher, so does the risk. People have lost thousands of dollars in HYIP. To minimize the amount of money that I may lost in case the program suddenly stop paying, I make sure that I requested Referral Cash Back (RCB) from my referrer.

Last year, Telekom Malaysia launched Webe; their very own mobile operator after Celcom left TM several years ago. The most interesting part about Webe is they’re offering an unlimited everything package which includes unlimited mobile data. Before using webe, I almost always had to buy additional quota at the end of every month causing my bills to hike sometimes over RM150 for a single month. Thankfully, it never happened now that I am with webe.
But is webe the fastest? No! I’m pretty sure they are capping everyone’s speed and VPN doesn’t really helps in my case. In my first attempt, my speedtest using webe with a 4 bar LTE signal gets me 7.51 mbps download and 9.79 mbps upload with 22ms latency whereas after connecting to VyprVPN, my download speed was reduced to 6.16 mbps yet my upload speed increased to 9.55 mbps and latency spiked to 190ms.

Yesterday, I bought a ticket to go back to Kuala Lumpur (Terminal Bersepadu Selatan, TBS) from Pacific Express JB at the ticket counter in Terminal Larking, Johor Bahru. I specifically asked if the bus will go directly to Kuala Lumpur and a “non-stop” journey and they said yes but there will be a short bathroom break. I then asked for a single seat which they said that it is a free seating so if I’m early then I will get a single seat. So what happened?
Firstly, I arrived 15 minutes early and I got myself a single seat only to have to give up my seat to a lady who insisted me to swap seat with her because she is not comfortable seating beside a random guy. Being a gentleman, I gave up my seat. Continue reading “Why I will avoid Pacific Express JB for route Johor Bahru-Kuala Lumpur”
