Pulau Perhentian - Excitement vs Exhaustion

22 May 2009 @ Putra Bus Station, Kuala Lumpur

Roughly one year after my first horrific trip to Pulau Perhentian, here I go again.

This time, the gang I went with has a little mixture. My usual TM gang, WoonLee's good friend - Ah Yung, WoonLee's sister and her boyfriend and his friends. Nevermind the people, let's get on to the fun part.

AiLing, Desmond, Alwen and his girlfriend

23 May 2009 @ Kuala Besut, Terengganu

Just like last year, we departed from Putra Bus Terminal at night, and reach Kuala Besut at dawn. We went to the only shop that's open at that time and had our breakfast.

Everyone looks terrible as we didn't get much sleep in the whole bus trip. Especially me who still has the trauma of previous incident. I keep waking up from my rest whenever the bus took a turn or making an abrupt brake.

It was raining when the sun is finally up. We walked to the Kuala Besut jetty and took a speedboat to Pulau Perhentian. Yay!!

Everyone in the trip except AiLing and Desmond - total of 10 people

The wind wasn't as strong as last year, the boat ride wasn't as bumpy as last year. It was quite a smooth sail all the way to our resort - Fauna Bay Resort.

We checked in and rested a while and quickly run out to the beach to shoot some photos.

Titanic Me and Yung version

The five of us then make shits turtle eggs from sand. Then we started making funny stuffs using sand.

Yung wanted to make a huge turtle, and all of us lended him a hand in the success of shaping a out of shape turtle.

After a bit of rest, we get changed into our swimwear and head to the sea! Our guide brought us to a shallow place for Snorkelling lesson 101. Half of the people there have the experience of snorkelling already while the other half was getting a hang at it pretty quickly.

Everyone in the sea

Not many photos taken during the expedition to the deep sea, as we're afraid of dropping our cameras into the water. Snorkel, snorkel, snorkel and we head back to the shore.

We got hold of a volleyball on the beach and played The Monkey Game. 3 monkeys were supposed to try to get the ball being passed around the "humans". Haha..

It was pretty fun. A lot of splashing, pushing, grabbing and laughing. Everyone was really exhasted after the game.

We cleaned ourselves up, ate, planned to walk along the beach later in the night but didn't make it. Everybody just drop dead on their beds. Zzzz... Dozed off till the next morning. Billy, out.
