Continue from Part 1
We followed Ram and Monica to Taj Mahal! Woohooo! TAJ MAHAL baby!
It’s a good thing we bought our tickets at Agra fort earlier because the crowd there was crazy! And also, as a female tourist, we sibeh privileged because we got to queue in shorter lines. Because there’s 4 lines. Local male, local female, male foreigner and female foreigner! So yeah, way way way way shorter queue! Gotta love India!
Me no like tour guides. Very majal.
I was camwhoring syok syok then got a few Indians passed by and offered help, saying… “No, you don’t have to do that. I can help you”
Errrr… then hilang the meaning of camwhoring then!
If you have those disposable shoe covers, then you can wear your shoes inside. Else either you put them at the shoe cabinets or like us, we put it inside the reusable shopping bag and carried them around.
Case takut kana curi kasut lawa tani~
So we decided to walk around first and rest rest a bit.
Then we’re off for some self-timer vainness!
Students taking picture with guy in costume. The woman can just kill me with her eyes!
(I secretly.. k la k la, not so secretly la since I put in my blog… I think, kinda think, that the “jie jie” is a trans)
*trying to refrain myself from using the word ah-gua*
Then the kids finally came forward and asked if can take pictures with Maurina, then me.
Told you we’re like celebrities! Or anyone who looks weird to them.
I think Mau was trying to explain where’s Brunei in the above pic…
Yeah, they asked where are we from and we answered Brunei. Of course, it didn’t’ ring a bell to any of them and hence they turned to their teacher and the male teacher was like… “Hmm…. Brunei?”
Then we explained further saying that it’s near to Malaysia and Singapore.
And baru light-bulb moment
”Ahhhh!!!! Malaysia~ Singapore~”
Nah, the kids are all from De Cambridge School.
Sounds fancy but Google can’t get any info from it.
Oh, it was like 12+pm when we’re done with both Agra Fort and Taj Mahal, and that’s just what we wanted to do in Agra. And we finished within 3 hours! And our train back to Delhi was 8.30pm. We had like what… 8 hours to kill! Hahhahhaa
Oh oh oh. And you know what’s the super duper am-kuk thing?
TOM CRUISE WENT TO TAJ MAHAL ON THE SAME DAY AS US WTF!
WE EFFING MISSED HIM BY FEW HOURS!
Nehmind, at least I was in the same time zone, same country, and some what very very close latitude and longitude! I’m pretty sure he breathed in the air I breathed out so I win.
The answer is, NO!
We’re perfectly healthy through out the whole trip. We were very careful with what we consumed. Only drink from sealed bottled water! Nothing from the road side.
Guess where we went!
Nope, Agra is a one-day trip so we’re not staying there.
We’re there for lunch!
(Macam sibeh rich like that)
The security is really tight. Got security guards with guns guarding the main entrance and the gate is always closed. Only open for (very obvious) tourists like us I guess.
The restaurant, Latitude.
No one was there when we came and we’re like… “Eh? How come empty ah? It’s lunch time leh.. At least got one or two people lah. Not nice kah the food? Or, the people here eat lunch at 3pm one?”
And the answer is the later one.
People started to come in at like 1.30pm. When we’re already half done.
WHERE TO GET CHAAT IN BRUNEI?!!!!
Apart from the buffet spread, guests were also allowed to order anything pasta or satay and don’t remember what else for the chef to cook on the spot for you.
The tax a bit la-lei lah.
but still, we’re tai-tai (wannabes).. so can lah, can afford.
(Since the whole day we only spent money on entrance ticket. We had quota to splurge okay)
We wanted to have spa treatment in Radisson but the service is only available for hotel guests. And we asked the receptionist to recommend us a place and she gave us a name, JAYPEE!
With 50 rupees, we reached Jaypee Palace hotel!
There’s too many awkward moments here but all is good. I a bit malu to say it here but if you are my friend, ask me personally and I will tell everything and confirm laugh till you tummy ache I tell you!
Okay, I will tell one.
After our sauna, our masseuses asked us to go to the window and checked out the peacock dance in the garden. It’s one of a company annual dinner’s performance. And when we’re like ooh-ing and ahhh-ing, suddenly our masseuses pulled us back because
THERE WERE PEOPLE (MEN) STARRING AT US FROM BELOW, MOUTHS OPENED!
(The room is in first floor, a lot of people in the garden looking up!)
I seriously don’t know, don’t dare to imagine how much those men saw in us but yeah… one of the bimbo-est moments ever!
McD’s icecream starts at 10 rupees!
(25 cents Brunei!)
Like the above photo, a man was chasing the train and hopping in but the train was already very crowded till people sat at the door there.
And you know what’s their toy, a cockroach!
One of the boy found cockroach on the floor and picked it up and started to throw at his friends. It was like, the cockroach is their football/netball like that…
I have not watch slumdog millionaire but.. you get the idea.
Actually she is. Her husband kept checking if she’s properly covered and he himself just watched the wife sleep.
So sweet kan!
Oh, I got a lot of stares again because after the massage, I took off my leggings and only walked around with my long shirt, which is long enough to cover my modesty. Then the sun set the the temperature went down and walking with legs shown in public seemed really crazy.
On the contrary, all our flights from AirAsia flew on time and this train and the flight to Goa (Kingfisher) delayed!
Again, the food is good!!!
And this, was the end of our day 2.
Reached hotel at 1plus am, woke up the next day without alarm and SHOPPING!!!!!
