Muscat, Oman

A Trip to Muscat,Oman.
When i reached Muscat airport, I apply my visit Visa at there.
An lady Immigration officer took a look at my passport.
She delighted and said "You are from Malaysian, Welcome to Oman!"
I felt surprise and told her "Yes, i am."
She told me that "Next week, she will travel to Malaysia as well"
"And, it is second time she go to Malaysia".
She is friendly and smiles at me. 
I am thinking "Different country different cultures"

After pay the Visa for R.O 6 = RM60,
I went to take my luggage, no any extra money i need to pay for (Rasuah).
He is the one waiting for me at the airport.
He is Omanian - friendly and polite.

I took less photos with my hand phone's camera.
The hotel i stay is Golden Tulip - 4 star Hotel.
It is a nice hotel for sure.
The cost of 1 night is around R.O 110 = RM1100.
I can't believe that i can watch Chinese MTV here too. 
 Breakfast are excluded.
I ordered a continental breakfast cost - R.O 5.8 = RM58.
 The portion is too much for me, it is good for 2 people.
You can have your buffer breakfast as well.
It is cost around R.O 9 = RM90.

First day, i managed to upgrade the system as customer request.
Second day, i'm standby at the factory - chatting with operators.
Third day, i backuped all the data and waited for go to airport. 
 I'm having my dinner at hotel as well.
It is buffet type. 
It make me eat a lot - i don't know why maybe it is call "Kiasu" gua.
The dinner buffer cost around R.O 11 = RM110.
A lot of food - Eastern and Western food as well.
I went to the top of the hotel and just snap a photos.
Nothing special there.
Nothing much i can do at the hotel.

There are 2 pubs - 
First pub at the ground floor near to the massage center.
There are hot spicy girls dancing and singing there.
Quite a number of people drink beer over there too.

Second pub at the top of the hotel.
Some pool tables and not many people here.
Drinking and watching Football live.

About the Massage center,
30 min massage cost around R.O 8 = RM80.
There are foot massage as well.
I'm not tried it as well.

There are internet service provided as well.
30 minutes costs around R.O 1 = RM10.
1 days costs around R.O 10 = RM100.
Hence, I am not online those few days.

Wait and Wait until 12:00am in the morning.
I went to the airport.
It was crowed! 
 It is a long queue.
I felt lucky that i am not same flight with them.
Else i will miss a flight again.
I am bit busy body person.
Then, i went to check where they are going to.
The destination is Dhaka/Chittagong.
Do you know where it is?

To be Cont...
