Day 2 : Island in the sun – Krabi, Thailand

I was so excited for today. It’s the day I went Island Hopping. In other words, I get to crossed out one of the things from my bucket list.

The day started with all of us waiting for the shuttle bus transporting us to the Ao Nang beach and as soon as I stepped out of my room, I was feeling sticky. We were so excited!

From the beach, I could see the island that surrounds the Ao Nang beach.

The first island that we went to was Pra Nang Island & Cave.

After awhile I got tired of taking pictures and swam with the fishes in the sea, I was so excited I got carried away swimming after the fishes. It’s all worth while, I’m happy.

After that we went to Tub Island, I was so excited I asked my colleagues and boss, “why are you sitting under the shades when you can see the school of fishes swimming in the sea?” Terry just gave me “what the” expression and I said, “Sorry, I’m just so excited. Whatever I go swim first”

After spending about 2 hours swimming, I was damn exhausted because I swam to the nearest island  and got back to the boat quite late because next activity would be snorkeling, it’s 5 minutes away from the Tub Island. At this point, I was really exhausted, I was really hungry and feels like vomiting BUT it was snorkeling!! I need to do it because it’s in my bucket list too and so I’ve crossed that out from my list.

We were given 45 minutes to snorkel around the area but I only spent around 20 minutes snorkelling around and enjoying myself. Then, we passed by the third island, which is;

After a few debate on what the Chicken Island looks like we went to an island, which takes about 10 minutes from the Chicken Island for lunch.

Green Curry, Mix Vegies, Fried Chicken & Rice

When you’re hungry, you’ll eat anything.

Actually the place where we had our lunch was an Island near Tub Island where I swam to before we went snorkelling and I was a bit “What the fuck” because we were only given an hour and a half at the Tub Island but I went to the island where I do know what’s the name but in the end, after snorkelling we had lunch there. It was crazy tiring when I had to swim and ran back to Tub island earlier on. Our dessert was served on the boat and of course, I was even happier!

Happy cause dessert was served on the boat.

Then off we go to Poda Island!

I didn’t do much just took a few more photos that can be found on my flickr. and just  ate my Jagung Bakar, it was delicious but I miss the Jagung Bakar at Perth Royal Show.

We spent about an hour on Poda Island, went back to Ao Nang beach and took the Songthaew to the hotel. As soon as I reached my room, took a shower and everything, my head landed on the pillow and I slept throughout the afternoon. When I wake up it was time for dinner, tonight we went to the hotel restaurant.

In conclusion, I don’t like the buffet because everything was just alright. Nothing so special about it. I think the buffet in Hilton Kuching taste better.

After dinner, we went to Ao Nang beach streets again & here’s a few things I did other than walking around.

Once in a life time experience, I will never ever hold a lizard ever again. I can feel the texture of the skin and it’s heartbeat and the lizard is called Bobby!

After walking around for quite awhile, everyone was at the beach setting up their lantern and so I joined. It was that time of the year where they would fly the lantern, before flying the lantern, we were supposed to write our wishes on the lantern. There were a few other people flying the lantern at the beach that night and the view was just awesome!

After we flew the lantern, we went in a convenient store and I found the sports drink that I had when I was in Japan 2004. I have been looking for this drink for so long and I found it in Krabi! I was so excited I skipped when walking out of the store. Yeay!

It had been an amazing day, crossing out my bucket list and all.

Later days,
