Hi my Name is Moe Nasrul. I'm the captain Fly Fm Myvi Trooper. What i do is promote the radio station Fly fm. well i guess i got the obvious out of the way lol. Why am i writting this blog you might ask? it's basically simple i have a story to tell... i guess that is also blatantly obviou:D Things have gotten really interesting in my life since i had joined the Troopers. I finally get to do things i've always wanted to since...well ever. I got to see switchfoot live (an awesome rocking concerto man!) and travel around Malaysia...which is a really big deal since i've always planned to go on a road trip but never really got to it. Now it's my job to do so...
Currently i'm in a hotel room at the Sentosa Regency Hotel in Alor Star. The peopl here in the Kedah area are very friendly, nice and hospitable. Everyone from the pak cik who runs the 'gerai' (hawker/street food restaurant) to the security gaurds at Bukit Merah Lake Town Resort (who allowed us to park right at the entrance so it was really easy to get a big crowd for our cross) and to the people at the hotel. It feels really nice to feel welcomed especially in a place you've never been too before.
The travel here however was not so kind... well weather wise at least. There was constant heavy rain as we travelled to the Kedah area and it made it interesting when we reached the R and R areas when we need to make a stop for...call of natures. But then again it's all part of the experience of a road trip so i can't exactly complain much about that.
The food here are some the most tasty and affordable ( in other words really really cheap). Definately good for someone under a tight budget.
I had a real blast checking into the hotel when asked by the nice young women if we had any bags and my team mate Viky mentioned that he only had one bag and i had this silent look of...erm i got like four... so okay i packed a whole lot of stuff... everything from this laptop that i'm writing on, to cloths, shoes, shampoo, tooth paste, and basically anything that i felt i could live without on tour... kinda know what rockstars feel like when they go on tour and pack a ton of things... amazing how much you depend on things like shampoo to make your hair not smell like a foot or the right toothpaste to keep your mouth fresh, or that extra pair of undies that keep you feeling smooth... ok ok to much info...
As the day ends, nothing beats just laying down on a nice bed and watch a couple of DVDs. thank god i brought my DVD player with me and a mountain full of DVDs that i have yet to watch.
Next stop after this would be Penang... I'm definately gonna gain a couple of serious Kilos from all the Penang food i'm gonna eat... Penang Food my only kryptonite :D
