Actually, this is a trip for June (Hui Juin), Meng Liang (her boyfriend) and her family for a short getaway trip to Perhentian Island, considering they manage to grab some promotional tickets to Kota Bahru and manage to get some cheap lodge for their 3 days 2 nights stay at Bayu Dive Lodge.
But due to emergency where Meng Liang need to FLY to Bangkok for business trip 2 weeks before the departure day, and need to stay there until today. Sooooooooooooooooooooo ended me filling the empty space lo...And in conjunction with my wish to leave all shits behind and go for a trip , at the same time June might need a companion and there goes me joining their family trip to Perhentian Island on 21-23 May 2010! Phewwww!! What a long story~
Unfortunately, I will need to purchase a new ticket for going because the existing ticket is promotion tickets and not transferable. The new ticket cost me at RM141, and together as well the fees for changing the return ticket which cost me another RM65. So, the total flight fare for my trip is RM206. =__="
So are you ready to go and browse around for our photos and story for the whole journey? Sit still, ready your popcorn and coke on your hand while scrolling down to the end of this post! hahahahaha! Like watching movie huh~ except this is not 3D animated movie, but a "movie" whereyou need to use your fingers to scroll. Please bear with it la huh~ ^^
Ok, back to the story, we will need to depart at 5am morning, wtf!! yes it's 5am morning as we booked 740am flight and need to check -in an hour earlier. And wtf again, I will need at least 1 hour to groom myself so I will need to wake up at 4am!! OMG!!!! For a better plan, I decided to sleep over June's house a night before to make everything easy. Luckily June is having a BIG queen size bed which enough to accomodate big-sized me.
Both of us do have the intention to go there for a simple photoshoot session since no plan to join for any diving nor snorkelling package (macam la pro!!). We prepared the necessity such as beach dresses, beach sport outfits, beach accessories, beach hat and so on. Last but not least, the mask session a night before to make us fresh enough next morning considering we need to wake up at 4am. =__="
And zooooooooooooom to check-in after finishing our quick breakfast.
#3 Our meals!
#5 June with her vegetarian burger
#6 Kita mau "berlepas" to Kota Bahru Kelantan lo!
#7 Kung's family photo - Big Kung, Small Kung and Tai-Ko Kung (from left to right)
#8 Two pretty leng luis' for the day! hahahaha!
#9 The aeroplane ah!!!!!!! Very big ah!!! I'm coming ah!!!!!!!
#10 Illegally taking photos while boarding. If you notice my eyes is not looking to the camera. Yeap, I was busy looking the leng chai pilot infront! hahahahah!
The 1st thing that comes into my mind after boarding is ................... TAKE PICTURE!!! Thus, if you were one of the passenger inside the plane, you might seeing a 3-8 gal running around taking photos ..snapping here and there.....shooting this and that.. hahahhaha!
We reached Kota Bahru around 8:30am and the flight just fly so fast. My butt can't even feel the warm of the cushion, and ta..daaaa we are going to land. Sighhh~
Did I told you before that my luck not so good in travelling with checked-in luggage? There were few times where my luggage being opened upon check-in and I only manage to get to know upon luggage collection upon arrival. So somehow, I do have fobia in checking in my luggage. Duhhhh~ Luckily nothing happen to my luggage and I manage to get it in piece. Amin!
We will need to take 45minutes taxi ride to Kuala Besut Jetty, proceed with 30-40 minutes of boat ride to Pulau besar. Fuhhh~ What a long journey just to reach the island. The taxi cost us at RM78.
#17 My iPhone is out of battery. Luckily I manage to buy this mobile iPhone charger at RM18 which will somehow lengthen the duration.
#18 Reaching jetty and rushing for the boat trip.
#19 Bought this hat at the jetty at Rm15! Suit us most for photoshoot later! hahhaah! I look cute or not? Hmmm..not so cute the glowing life-jacket!
#20 While on the way to island , on the speed boat! Fuhhh!! Damn fast! You can see how fast it is by seeing their hair! hahaha!
#21 After a long bumping boat ride, at last we get to see the land after 40 minutes.
Immediately went to check-in our lodge upon landing..the weather is too hot, can't wait to get a cold and chilling bath! And most importantly we are so freaking hungry, need to find something to eat~
Unfortunately, the accomodation is not as good as expected. The air-cond is not cooling at all during afternoon. It is mainly because of their wooden roof which couldn't really stand the heat from outside. Can you imagine, June's dad and sister can't stand of the heat and decided to go over to resort next door hoping to get a better air-conditioned room. And guess what, Arwana Resort manage to provide them the CHILLING and WELL-CONDITION room with the cheaper price! WTF!!! So, opt for Arwana for whoever would like to go Perhentian trip.
The food there also quite expensive. Can you imagine some of the resort selling the large 1.5L mineral water at RM8??? A can of canned-drink at Rm5? A pack of snack at RM5? A plate of pattaya fried rice at RM15? OMG!! Regret for not bringing my own maggi mee, biscuits and drinks.
Anyway, people says "Spend and don't think of budget when you want to go for a holiday, spend it! As long as you're happy!"....Yaya, that's the reason why people always over-budget in every trip. LOL!
#22 The scene so nice! Relaxing tree~
#23 Tired and exhausted me...while waiting for the food to come.. I'm starving ler!!!
#24 RM7 mamak mee! FXXX expensive too~
#25 Ok, let's go around the chalet ... Modern basin..
#26 Modern toilet bowl. Luckily they are not providing only a hole, for us to shit/pee and to be released to the sea! Haahhaha!
#27 Water heater! Thank god!
#28 Non chilling air-cond... But it somehow function-well during the night ^^
After check-in, a quick sauna-nap in the sauna-chalet..it's time to go out to take photo with the nice beach and nice scenery. Both of get ready with our 1st day outfit, with our nice hairdo, with our nice makeup, with our happy mood to take photo~ And ta..daaaaaaaaaaa~~ Browse for our nice photos! ^^
