A BIG THANK YOU TO KOSMO!

Akhbar Kosmo!
Terima kasih tak terhingga buat Li Shian (wartawan Kosmo!) kerana memberi peluang untuk kami berkongsi pengalaman kembara kami (yang masih baru).. Dan tak lupa juga kepada pembaca2 serta followers blog kami yang terbaru. Thank you so much for the overwhelming response. Rupa-rupanya ramai juga yang berminat dan berhasrat untuk mengembara secara backpack ni.. Yes! It is fun, adventurous and HAPPENNING!!

Us on the news!
Memang selalu kos yang menjadi halangan untuk melancong/mengembara tetapi jika kita dapat rancang dengan lebih awal, menginap di budget hotel/hostel, do some research, travel light (minimumkan barang2 bawaan), check on latest currency rates, minimumkan perbelanjaan pengangkutan domestik, bawa makanan segera (he..he..untuk emergency purposes dan jika dibenarkan oleh mana2 negara), yang paling penting sekali, get the cheapest air ticket. And the rest follow your instinct.

Jika ada yang berminat untuk mendapatkan tips atau berkongsi pengalaman, boleh email kepada kami di usblogabout@gmail.com

*For those who missed our article on KOSMO! yesterday, don't worry we have captured it for you...

Thanks to Along & our niece Aimieia, InsyaAllah we'll try our best..

well, I found out about you guys and your blog from Kosmo as well. It is very inspiring, really!

Maybe if you guys could like summarize at the end of each entry how much did you guys spend for accomodations, tickets and food- not to the very details of course.

That would be very much helpful. Maybe that can be a budget basis for people trying to do the same.

Faizal and Anna said...

Hello undomesticwifey,

Thank you and we really appreciate your suggestion. In future, definitely we'll include our expenses. Actually, we are planning to post on "How we Do It and how much does it cost us.."

Hai Heldamelissa, Hadif dan Bed. Terima kasih banyak2 sudi baca blog kami. Tak sangka pulak pengalaman kami yang tak seberapa ni menjadi inspirasi. InsyaAllah kami akan "reveal" on how we do it and what are the tips on searching the hotel.

Same with others,I get to know both of you when I read an article in KOSMOS.Since then I became fan to your blogs.I'm backpack traveller too.I just started last year where I've been travelled to Indonesia for 11 days with total expenses incurred only below RM1,000.00.I have few plans to travel backpack and hopefully can get some tips from you guys.

Faizal and Anna said...

Hi Cikgooden, boleh lah cuba2 backpack.. and to Sizzling Suzai_choi, don't worry you still have time, start slowly and you'll pick up ...

Wow! That's Great Nur Qaseh.. maybe you can tell us your tips.. anyway, it's good to know Malaysia Backpackers!
