rates for my driving and tour are IRD 500.000 per day , and 300.000 for Half day tour
There are no extra charges. The rates are for one car. I don't go by "per person". I can take a maximum of 7 people.

Availability = August 24-30
would you like me to set aside for you in my calendar with 8 Car ( 1 car will fit 7 passanger )
The car is as bellow . Kia Carnival , Toyota innova , toyota Kijang , suzuki AVP

The rates quoted above include the car, driver, gasoline/petrol, cold mineral water/soft drinks, cold towels and sarongs for visits to temples and parking fees.Please note that all your entrance fees to places of attraction, donations and your meals are not included .

I don't have fixed hours(e.g. 9 - 5 pm). You can also use my services in the evening. Therefore, if you want to go for dinner, you will not have to call a for a taxi. I will be there, waiting for you after your meal.


w Hotel = RM 6480 for 9 rooms for 3 nights (one room is IDR 600,000 for 6 people inclusive of breakfast) – MASA INN KUTA (Very cheap!!)

w Food = ??? (dinner at Jimbaran on day 3, very pricy but not to be missed!!! It is spectacular! Would IMU consider sponsor us for one dinner?)

w Flight = estimation price RM 400 2 ways per person (for 50 students = RM 20,000) – the price rate is very unpredictable and purely based on luck.

w Transport = RM 4800 for 8 cars that can fit 7 people (3 full days inclusive of driver/guide, sarong, cold tower, water, soft drink and petrol – cheap!!!)


all entrance fees to places of attraction (generally not pricy-less than RM10), donations and your meals are not included)

Notes :
This itinerary was not made via travel agent. We are safe from any hidden charges. I contacted Mr Dean the driver directly and this guy is working alone and he is highly in demand internationally. He is honest and trustworthy. He has a detailed knowledge of the entire island. He has a great sense of what is “worth seeing” and what is not as well as fabulous suggestions for restaurants, hotels, and photo opportunities. Dean is completely reliable and a very safe driver. As for the hotel, we can book directly online or via telephone booking.

PLease ppl...please come, cos this is our last chance! let me know whether ur going by the end of the hols!!!!!

hey ppl... i did some researching on our class trip, and i found that GROUND TRIP for local and some overseas tours are almost the same. the diff is onli the airfare.

date: 10-20 August 2009 (between exam finish and convocation) not sure exactly when

for sure, all listed venues are within RM3XX- 500. EXCLUDING air fares. it DOES include accomodation (dun expect Hilton), food, transports, tour guide and shows. all packages are for 4 days 3 nights.

Air asia would take the lowest and highest prices, then average it out, with some discounts. We cant negotiate with them, cos we're NOT chartering the WHOLE PLANE!! price range would be around RM 300++ return ticket for all destinations per person (for overseas la).

anyone has contacts with MAS???

so far, the cheapest tour (highly recommended) is Thailand, and it covers beaches as well as shopping trips. prices starts from RM340. (prostitutes fees excluded) The most expensive is Siem Reap (u know...angkor wat??)

ask me for any details.( for now..thats all i know)

Vote NOW, so i can arrange earlier. and pls...VOTE ONCE!!! hopefully i get the results by the end of the month la..and pls... pass the msg around

dateline: 17 APRIL 2009!
C107...lets go tour!!!

b4 i start with all the happy new year, gong xi gong xi and dragon horse semen god, just wanna share something really surprising and meaningful that happened some time ago.. patient N, 12 year old malay gal, admitted for viral fever. while chatting and taking history from the mom, she suddenly said, y dun u talk to her in chinese??? apparently, shes been to chinese skool all her life! and from there, i took down more info from her...

and b4 she was discharged, she gave a doctor a small note, which was then passed to a fren, and landed up with me...
says : 万事如意, 身体健康, 笑口常开, with a little drawing of me there... really made my day...
