Gold Coast.. Here we come!!

Salam All,

As not so many ppl know.. Cik Lyzz and DD will fly to Gold Coast
next week. Actually, we already booked this flight ticket very long time ago which is end of last year. During that time Air Asia have a promotion deals. The ticket price is only RM147 for return flight per person. Cheap right?? And after add the insurance and tax it's cost us about RM500 per person for two way ticket from KL to GC vice versa. Still Cheap. So, after discuss with DD, we plan to just grab it, select the travel date, make payment and done. ( Since the travel date is long way to go...we just sit on it. )

Budget Summary : Flight Booked Nov 2010 during the Air Asia promo. Our ticket price at that time just about RM1K for 2 pax. So, plus the baggage and meal is around RM1.1K

Then, in Aug 2011, which was held a Matta fair I told DD that we dont have any ground package for our Gold Coast trip. So, I would like to go and see the Matta fair package. Unfortunately, it was during the fasting month...and we are too busy with the family matters and all that. Beside, we also need to spend some money for Raya eve.Then, stay put. At this stage, I start google the travel package from website and start asking their quotation and comparing from one to another. At last, we pleased to have a travel package from Sedunia Holidays.We are most delighted to know that they still have the MATTA Fair Package promotion available for us. Yeay!!! ( Lompat2 sambil tepuk tangan.. gagagaga )

Budget Summary :Ground Arrangement from Sedunia Holidays: ( RM1.4K per pax )

For Day 1 Itinerary.. we don't have any activity so, we buy one day tour voucher Wyndham Cruises - Wyndham Cruises Package with Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary to fulfill our schedule. This package includes Morning or Afternoon 2hr waterway cruise of the beautiful Gold Coast Broadwater, complimentary morning or afternoon Devonshire Tea & refreshment and Informative commentary of the lifestyles of the rich & famous and beautiful homes!

Wyndham Cruises Terminal, behind Tiki Village at the river end of Cavill Avenue, in the heart of Surfers Paradise With hundreds of native Australian animals on display in natural bushland and rainforest settings, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary provides a rare opportunity to get closer to our amazing native wildlife.

Budget Summary :This was cost us AU$50 per person. Around RM300 for both of us.

Yesterday, I tried the Web Check-In since I got the email, counter check-in will now charge RM10 per person. So, I decide to try it. The concept is simple. You can now print your own boarding pass up to seven days before your departure date from your house and you will have more time at the airport (mostly if you don't have any luggage since you don't have to queue).I must admit that it makes easier for the users to have better flight experience, but in the other hand, if it's functioning, then it can make problems. This is what i experienced when trying Air Asia's Web Check In. The problem with this check in, is i got a split seat for both of us. Uwaaa...... there's a "change your seat" button, but it will cost you RM35 for standard seat. What la... I hope there will be one passanger who is kindly want to exchange his/her seat with me. Ehehehe..

To do the web check in, you just simply need to log on to Air Asia web site and key in your booking number and follow the step by step. Pretty simple. Just a few click, you will get your boarding pass by your choice either via email or via your smart mobile. But, please note if you travel overseas, you still need the boarding pass to be stamped at the check in counter before departure.

Initially, whoever uses web check-in service is consider quite satisfy except for the seating arrangement tu la.. I read a few blogs also complaint about this. But we do not have much choice. Either to pay RM20 for check-in at counter, or RM35 for change seat no... or you just let it be. ( Bukan lama pon.. as long as same flight but your travel partner not seat next to you.) The positive side is you don't have to queue when you reach airport and it fasten your process to check-in at Web Check-In counter, same goes to Check-In Kiosk.

This is how the printed boarding pass looked like.

Okey.. we hope we have fun trip there.. and also have a safe journey go and back. Please pray for us that everything will go as planned. ;D Aminnnn....

I believe what you composed was actually very logical.

But, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier post title?
I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added something to possibly grab folk's attention?
I mean "Gold Coast.. Here we come!!" is a little vanilla.
You ought to peek at Yahoo's home page and watch how they write post headlines to get viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get people interested about everything've written.
In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
