I started working at Cyberjaya. Cyberjaya, in one sentence; “It’s damn far from my house”. Travelling 100km/day and paying RM6/day for tols, petrol and tols really costs me a lot.
I find that the best route to Cyberjaya is from Duta. Any one of you reading this also travel from Duta to Cyberjaya??? At first, I was thinking of going to Cyberjaya by NKVE. But the tol costs alot, around RM4.40/trip. I have tried few routes.
Go to Cyberjaya (2-way trip)
Duta > Sprint > Seremban Highway > Serdang > Uniten > Cyberjaya
This route is in total – 51km, have to pay RM6 tol at Sprint exit and Serdang exit, no jam at all, smooth driving.
Duta > Hartamas > Phileo Dmnsara > LDP > Puchong > Cyberjaya
Total of the route is 45km, have to pay RM5 tol at Phileo, Puchong, Puchong Jaya. It’s jammed up at SS17, Damansara Jaya, Kelana Jaya, Sunway.
From both of this routes, I think the best to take is the first one. No jam, I think if I escape from jam, will save some petrol, better than jam in a bumper to bumper crawl. I think it will cost more petrol, even it’s a 6km difference.
If you know any short cuts, please share with me and other readers.
Besides that, the work place internet connection is extremely bad, it’s sad to have such badly managed/routed internet connection. My house connection is much better than that. Furthermore, have to online with TMNet Hotspot in order to get away from the Jana server firewall. Everything is blocked except http connection.
Now, I really appreciate TMNet Hotspot service, or else I can’t ssh to server, I can’t ftp to server, my vmware connection cannot work, I can’t smtp pop/imap to email, can’t online msn/yahoo to communicate with developers out from space, can’t even download any manual/zip/tar.gz online, which makes my life suck during working hours.
I love you TMNet Hotspot.
