As part of my job, I need to cover Teluk Intan as well.
Yes, Teluk Intan.
The only thing I knew about Teluk Intan that it was one of the cities in the Saidina game I played when I was younger. (*shifty eyes*)
Ha ha ha yes and I was never good with Geography.
I was hanging out with Harry earlier, and he asked me, "Teluk Intan tu dekat mana? Kuantan is it?"
Okay, so Teluk Intan is in Perak.
And I cover Perak as part of Shell's task to me.
Teluk Intan is very well known for it's Menara Condong.
This is how it looks like:-
Awww.. Isn't it just the cutest?
(Macam Menara Condong Pisa, tak? -__-)
Well, I've been travelling a lot, and the first time I went to Teluk Intan, my Retailer booked me a place in a Homestay.
Yes, a HOMESTAY.
This is how it looks like:-
It looks kind of cool, huh?
Something like the cottages in Cameron Highlands.
But me, I've never been in a Homestay, not even in small hotels, alone WTF!
Ha ha ha so this is indeed a priceless experience for me -___-
As I entered the Homestay, this is how the 'Lobby' looks like:-
It's actually a house, with 6 rooms in it, and I occupy one of the rooms.
And the rest of the rooms? Empty.
This is how the room looks like:-
I was actually quite alright as I checked in, but then, Afiq just had to text me and say,
"It looks like a place for serial killers, you know like in those horror films."
Yeah, some friends are just not gonna help you go through things.
*angry face to Afiq*
I had trouble sleeping that night, I kept imagining Ghosts outside of my room, in front of my bed, serial killers coming through the door, you know what I mean...
So I did this:-
Kononnya by placing the 'small' side table, it would actually save me from serial killers?!!
And the shoes? Hahahaha. I just wanted to block the view from outside, because I don't want to be sleeping, and suddenly woke up only to see shadows moving outside!
I survived my first visit to Teluk Intan.
The second visit, I got my Retailer to book me into a Hotel.
Please take note that currently THERE ARE NO GOOD HOTELS in Teluk Intan.
This is the view I got from the room:-
The first night was quite OK, and the next morning, I went out early for breakfast.
When I came back in the evening, this is how my room looks like:-
They DIDN'T even do HOUSEKEEPING!!! -___-
And I was staying there for several nights! *faints*
The toilet light bulb blew on me on the first night.
There were 2 power points, and 1 of them was out of order, and another, was located NEXT to the toilet.
So I had to charge my Blackberry next to the toilet.
I did my work, also next to the toilet, because I needed the power point.
The Hotel gave me towels, but I'll be dead before I even use them.
Lucky me that I brought my own everything, from shower gel to towels to comforters to hairdryer.
To complete my experience, I noticed that the window in my room could not LOCK.
And they had this SLIDING windows, where people can EASILY crawl into the room.
It's a 2 story hotel, and you know how wild my imagination can be.
So this is what I did:-
Okay you might ask "WTF is this?"
Hahahaha I know right.
It's 2 hangers stucked together to lock the window.
So that nobody can move/open the window, even if they tried. (It's blocked)
And the rationale in putting the glass there?
So that IF that someone (serial killer) managed to slide the window, the glass will fall, and it will create a sound to notify me.
If I hear the sound, I will quickly jump from my bed and run for my life.
I put this plastic thing on the floor so that the glass will fall on top of it and will make a loud noise.
And you might ask, "Why not just change rooms?"
Well, I requested for a room nearest to the Hotel's exit point, and I've been told by a colleague that there are few rooms with "Hantu" and I didn't want to take a chance my switching to another room with ghosts in them.
Hahahaha so there you go.
Girl VS the World.
Note: I actually enjoyed my stay in Teluk Intan (if you minus the accomodation issue), the place is lovely, the people are nice, and the food are just AWESOME!
