Universal Studios Singapore @ Sentosa Island

Location : Universal Studios Singapore @ Sentosa Island
GPS Coordinates : N1 15.355 E103 49.371

Arrived at the parking at Resort World Sentosa, it took some time to find a parking as the place almost packed.

Need to hitch a ride on this vehicle to the entrance as the parking area is huge and took a while to go on foot.

Many years never being to Singapore already. This time went to Singapore to do some work and managed to do some sightseeing of the new attractions at Singapore which is the new Marina Bay Sands Hotel. The hotel situated at the Marina Bay area with other famous attractions like the Esplanade and the Singapore Flyer.

On the left side is the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and on the right side is the convention centre and shopping complex.

The ERP system which is like the toll at Malaysia.

On top of the hotel is the Sky Park on the 57th floor. You can catch the best view of the bay area there.

A Visit To Kluang Coffee Powder Factory

Location : Kluang Coffee Powder Factory
GPS Coordinates : N2 01.310 E103 19.455

Everytime I went to Kluang I would buy the local famous produce the Kluang "cap television" coffee. Normally I would buy from the specialty shop at the town but this time I went to the factory to get the fresher out of factory coffee. The factory is not far from the town and you can smell the aroma of the coffee once you step out of the car.

 I think this is the packaging area. You can see this when enter from the main door.

The retail shop just at the side of the entrance. Many types of coffee available at the shelves.

 The wall of fame. Many famous people photos visited this factory stick on the wall.

 This is the warehouse and the loading bay.

How To Make A Phone Call From A Public Phone Booth

Location : Simpang Ampat
GPS Coordinates : N2 25.890 E102 11.221

This phone booth may seem to be a normal pay phone booth and you may think how hard is it to make a phone call from a public phone booth. At first, I may feel the same but I found it quite ironic when I saw this phone booth at a Kampung area near Simpang Ampat Melaka. In my mind, a public phone should be coin operated or coin and card operated for any public convenience. This was not the case as this pay phone out of nowhere is only card operated. How in the world you can make a phone call without a phone card. Furthermore, there's no any shops available nearby to sell a phone card. I wonder how many person actually make a call from this phone. While it may be logical for Telekom Malaysia perspective to set up such a phone at a Kampung to avoid lost of income due to theft but really can't seem logical in a user perspective especially if you need to make a phone call urgently and you don't have a phone card. Probably Telekom Malaysia already done a survey on this and conclude that kampung people are more advance and they succeptible to higher technology.

Let us see a bit closer. No coin insert point sighted. I think I should insert my mycard or my visa card to make a call.

This public phone seem more logical as coin operated. Why can't this kind of phone install at the kampung area. Do give your comment and any sample if this kind of thing happen in your area.
