  1. Hi Eyvonne & Julie

    Glad both of you can come along. Perhaps, you may wish to invite a friend or two to make this trip too, as it seems at the moment entries are lacking.

    Eight persons including two EOs would be just nice to fill in two taxis at Tanjung Balai and plus economical sharing of food-costs when eight of us dine at seafood dinner an a exclusive lunch-table on nasi-padang.

  4. Hello
    I agree with Norlinda that Karimun Island is a very relaxing place to be as it still has its kampung charm. And the seafood is affordable and fresh. Do go for it if the timing is right.

    Btw Tiger Airways has new flight to Padang from Dec 1 onwards at $85 one-way. I missed the Padang trip few years back. If the past organizer can consider organizing a similar trip to Padang and BukitTinggi during school holidays, I would surely like to join.

  6. Hi Eyvonne, Julie, Dolly and Joy,

    There are 10 of us for this trip.

    Change S$100 to rupiah will do, to cover expenses for hotel, food and taxi fare in Karimun.
