Quick guess what this post will be about? Pisau Cukur literally translates as shaver but in Malay, it is an idiom (?) which means a gold digger.
It is also the movie title for a Malay chick flick set dominantly on a cruise. Bukan Titanic je movie set on a cruise okay.
Last December, alhamdulillah I was given the opportunity to board StarCruise Libra for 5 nights fully sponsored by them. A cruise vacation have been in my wishlist since I was (probably) 7. Ya and I shared this dream together after listening to Neni's stories about her own cruise vacations. We wanted to do it as our graduation trip but that plan never fall through. InsyaAllah we will be able to in near future.
StarCruise Libra collaborated with 12Fly.com and arrange 2 trips for us. We embarked the ship from Penang's Port Swettenham, sailed away, spent the night high sea and returned to Penang. Disembarked the ship, walked around Penang's Beach Road and had a mini makan session because Penang. And returned to board the ship again for our next trip: Penang - Phuket - Krabi - Penang.
Before I give you the day to day experience, I have to announce this first. I LOVED EVERY SINGLE MINUTE OF IT! I am a mono-phobic so travelling alone is not fun for me. However, being on a cruise is totally different. I was alone but never lonely. I felt safe and happy. For single ladies looking for an escape, you should consider going on a cruise. It's not even THAT expensive. Maybe it was back then. And the reputation somehow remain strong. But for a 4days 3nights trip with 2 stopovers in Phuket and Krabi, its only RM1200 per person. Check out their website for more information about available trips.
Right, let's get on to it!
In the next post.......sorry2, I have to split it to 3 parts. This will be the introduction. The next one, 1 day trip to Penang high sea and the last one - all about the 4 days 3 nights trip.
