    all these u dump in ur check-in bags. while things like camera, laptop n lenses and those wine and beer that u are bringing along, better hand carry up.

    and dun bring such a big bag up unless u know the person sitting beside u... or else it will be a bad start off for a holiday liao....
    Thanks for the tips Phew luckily I'm not carrying any wine and beer, the camera and lenses are enough for me, not even bringing laptop, just hard disk.

    does a load of 165kg makes u think i carried a bicycle there ?

    anyway. i bought some teeshirts and bought some sovenirs for the kids there.

    after giving them the sovenirs and teeshirts. i in turn bought some sovenirs back and yes... it weight around 100-120kg back...

    well if i didnt bring those teeshirts and sovenirs, i think my total load will be around 80kg max too...

    the personal things like clothings will be sorted into the main bag, the sovenirs laptops and all valuables will be one another bag once i've reach the main staying place...

    the main haversack will be carried around the whole day. while the rest will be in the room.
