papa kit's marina and fishing lagoon, liloan

much have already been said, raved, blogged, posted all over facebook etc. about papa kit’s. i was so behind everyone else till i persuaded my family to drop by here while on our way home. i didn’t know exactly where it was. all i knew was that it can be accessed from the road that forks from the national highway where a mini replica of the liloan’s lighthouse stands. but we were not coming from the national highway but instead, we made a detour through the cansaga bridge from mandaue city which is a better alternative to the conventional albeit narrow thoroughfare in consolacion – liloan route.

i was ready to let go of my hope of finding papa kit’s when we were already nearing to the end of the road that merges the national highway in liloan. however, just before we completely lost our lunch, we then saw the papa kit’s tarpaulin right after we crossed the last bridge prior to the national highway. it promised that papa kit’s is merely 200 meters away but we still slightly panicked for we thought that we needed to go back an ordeal of 200 meters! good thing though, my mother saw in time the arrow sign at the opposite side of the road that would finally lead us to our lunch. we liked to heed to our growling stomachs after all.

malaysia truly asia from singapore

malaysia and singapore are quite close to each other with the bigger country just north to the city-state. if my brother and i only wanted the malaysian stamp on our passports, we could have opted to visit some part in malaysia that's 1 hour away by bus but instead, we opted to pay a quick visit to the malaysian capital, kuala lumpur which is a gruelling 5-hour bus journey.

there are a lot of bus companies that ply the singapore to kuala lumpur route. you only have to pick the ultimate one that can give you the cheapest deal. we scheduled to go to kuala lumpur on a sunday and we promptly bought our tickets on the friday before that or else, we could be  rushing along with the local weekenders.
