Ok .. let’s start with the last lunch at Mid Valley .. 🙂


then heading to Forex.. give it a try.
“Do you have Papua New Guinea – Kina notes ?”
…”Nope”.. “Ok then.. change to USD instead.”

Upon arrival at KLIA around 8.40pm… looking for “Air Niugini” counter to get the boarding pass..

after that.. just checked in..

[ad#postad] calling everyone that get a hold onto ..

the next thing we know is.. flight delayed… to 2.10am .. due to volcanic eruption at “Madang”.. affecting our flight path to Port Moresby,Papua New Guinea..

(this time having another round of “Burger King” as given a voucher..charged to PX .. haha)

2nd time boarding..and we make it.. (is Boeing 757) if not mistaken..


the next I know was.. about time to arrive at Port Moresby already .. yay!


touch down…!

Checking for phone coverage…got line… “DIGICEL”..can sms to all people at home 🙂


then.. moved to “Airlines PNG” for small plane to Kawito..
waiting for almost 2hour.. so sleepy .. luckily got aircond and all.
Ok.. this is the “Twin Otter” .. can’t help but to
response like this the first time heard it “Err..excuse me ..? are you saying ..~ Twitter..??”

At Kawito Air-strip… .. yes.. it is a grassfield.. hahaha

    Wah you really have a sense of adventure!

    I’m curious how did you plan your journey … research up front or find out as you go ?

      only main course/route were researched upfront.. i.e need get to seremban and then only got bus to get to PD.
      the rest of the detail were figured out as trip goes on..

      reach there then only select one of the available option..
      look around for sigboard, landmark and all.
      if all above fail.. then ask around.. which way to go to where.. and stuff like that.

      also sometime (and whenever comfortable) use handphone 3G/GPRS to access maps.google.com to ask for distance and direction.
      mainly when need to answer “how far more to go ?”
      as google map give exact distance from one location to another..
      then only can tell roughly how long and what to expect next..

      p/s : normally need not to answer..especially if going alone..!
      as this time I had my girlfriend accompany me all the way , so need to attend to her request also..
      else wouldn’t be that nice..:-)
