There is a white Masjid beside PUSKESMAS
Since we were on the way to Iboih for snorkeling, Mrs Hana dropped by Iboih Mini Hospital, PUSKESMAS Iboih (Pusat Kesihatan Masyarakat Iboih) cuz one of our friends was not feeling well.

She had vomiting, headache, nausea and sore throat since yesterday evening.  I wasn’t sure the exact caused, however we believed those symptom appeared due to the hilly pathway and the winding road at this island and she not supposed to drink coffee too much. Plus maybe she didn’t drink much water due to this island was hot and dry weather.

Pada May2014, iaitu setahun lalu aku ke Sumatra, area Pekan Baru, Riau dan Bukit Tinggi, West Sumatera. May2015 kali ni aku nk kongsikan pengalaman aku ke Aceh dan Pulau Weh (Sabang). Aceh suatu ketika dulu pernah dilanda gempa bumi 9.0 skala Richter dan diikuti bencana Tsunami pada 26 Dec, 2004, iaitu hampir 11 tahun yang lalu. Banda Aceh is located at the northern tip of Sumatra Island and Pulau Weh merupakan sebuah pulau yang menarik untuk aktiviti snorkeling dan selam scuba cuz ikan ngan coral kat situ so breathtaking.

We bought AirAsia flite ticket (return) on promo and we managed to get RM85.80 per pax. While checked-in, we added up luggages and Indonesia airport departure tax (bag+tax=RM52 per pax). Total payment for flite was RM137.80 per pax. We departed at 1315 from KLIA2 and reached Sultan IskandarMuda Airport (BTJ) at 1345 (Indonesia time). The journey took about 1.5 hours by airplane.
