Greeting all! Recently I has been asked to join the DiGi Challenge for Change Season 5 Finale Award Ceremony #DIGICFC on 24 June 2014 (Tuesday). I would like to thanks Rantau PR for sending me the invitation for this event. This event is held at PJ Live Arts, Jaya One.
Basically, I have classes on Tuesday for this semester. So, I have to start my journey from Bukit Jalil (which is from my place of study) to the Event Spot (Jaya One).
I took train from Bukit Jalil (LRT) to Masjib Jamek (LRT) and then change train (LRT) to Universiti station. Basically, it took around 35-45 minutes. After that, I took Metro Bus-no.12 that able me to reach me to reach Jaya One.
Besides that. I would like to thanks Sin Yee and also Wei Kean for the tutorial to reach Jaya One. Actually I have do my research on that place but I need to get confirmation from them because they more familiar on that part.
