“Broom.. broom”.. the car started… Boone was stepping on the accelerator pedal but the car didn’t move…???? Don’t tell me the car is not working… aiyoh… the gear was still at the neutral position, no wonder… Boone, are you awake??????
Pasir Puteh. “Heh, got makan shop there” We ordered the roti canai telur… hmmm… taste good.. crispy and not oily. The gravy (curry) also not bad. As usual, Boone can’t control himself and ordered another roti canai.. so much for his dieting..haha. The teh O was very sweet, should have followed Shikin who ordered “teh O kosong” ..
The weather was extremely HOT when we reached the jetty. Shikin and I took out our caps and applied sun block… Boone took out his cool shades from New York. We met our clients and then boarded our speedboat…luckily it was shaded… not bad. “ Ok guys, ready to go” shouted one of the client.. Yeah!!!! Pulau Perhentian here we come!!!!
The speedboat carried 12 people instead of the designated 10. One fat guy was ordered to sit in the middle to balance the boat. Ok, here the boat speed…. Hiya…. The wind was strong and almost blew away our cap.. so we decided to take off our caps. “Wow…..wow…” Shikin and I screamed whenever the boat hit the wave crest and went “up and down”… Both of us were lifted up from the seat…. Emmm…. I think is only apply to slim people only.. not sure about the fat guy (not Boone) sitting in the middle.
We eventually arrived our hotel.. Coral View Island Resort around 2.30pm… we were so exhausted and thirsty. Quickly grab the welcoming drink – orange juice… glug glug..can I have another one???
Seafood tom yam, mixed vegetable, telur dadar and ikan tiga rasa.. yummmmy…… That was our lunch!!!!!!!!!!!!,.. as usual.. ladies first ya..sorry guys.. “wow.” The fish and tom yam very spicy… but nice..hehe.. Boone was busying wipe away his sweat.... as usual… can’t understand him….
After lunch, its time to check in to our rooms… oh my goodness… so high up…another round of climbing… our room is “ Hill Top View”.. ya right, I think better call it “ Roof Top View”… Boone’s room was in front of mine, and Shikin’s is next to mine…The room is very simple equipped with a bed, make up table.. and of course a toilet.. Surprisingly, NO TV! Without any further delay, quickly I washed my face and went to Kg. Pasir Hantu with Shikin to do the social survey….
We decided to treat ourselves to ice-cream.. it “only” cost RM 3 here instead of RM 5 at our hotel. … Sorry Boone, we know that you were doing Tekek or Pos Betau report there, we thought that want to “ta pao” for you, but I guess not…. Hehe..
Went back to the hotel around 6pm, saw Boone doing his report at the café… I quickly changed to my swim suit (left my “sexy bikini” back home) and rented a snorkeling set..… Practice breathing in and out using mouth instead of nose… ok… got it! Confidentially jumped into the sea, “oh..oh”… is very hard to breath in the sea using mouth compared to practice just now!!!…
As I continue to get used to the breathing, I swam hard to go to join the group of people including the client…. “Turtle… Turtle…” shouted one guy floating in the sea… I was so excited and quickly swam as fast as I can with my “short” legs can carry me. Al-Amin (the client) was ever so helpful in the water, grabbed me by the life jacket and pulled me along in the water as I’m too slow to get moving. There was a big turtle under the sea.. so nice.... saw a real turtle for first time in my life … (not counting the captured turtle during the Bali trip).. hehe.. After spending 1 hr snorkeling, it was time to get out from there… as I started to feel dizzy and vomiting after bobbing up and down in the sea.. hehe)… so hungry…
It's me again....."Sexy Bikini"
See a rabbit ion the moon??
The next morning we had to leave early to catch our boat. This was my first trip to Perhentian and it was great. I’ll be coming back again in a few weeks time with Farah, and I’ll be looking forward to more snorkeling and fun (minus the hiking). This time I will bring my real bikini.
