What will you do for RM35,000?

Pangkor Day 2 (yesterday)

My day ended late. Neither of us officially celebrates Christmas but we get excited about it. So we had our own gift exchange session on the eve that lasts until midnight.

The day started rather early, too. Woke up at 7AM, got ready and had breakfast at Warong Mansur. Must have nasi lemak with 'telur goyang'. It was awh-sum!

After breakfast we headed out to the beach. C took us to her 'secret' beach but we later discovered it has become not so secret any more. Lol.

There were many people with orange vests on the side she we wanted to take us. So we made do with this small cove just before it. Which was perfect! It's like we have a small private pool.

In order to get to the cove, we had to track up a trail from the temple. It took some 15-20 minutes to get to it but it was worth it. Or, you could just hire a small boat.

We just soaked ourselves for hours, utter bliss I tell you!

At about noon, maybe, we tracked back out to have lunch at the same warong. Lunchtime must have? Mee Bandung!

Back to hotel to shower a bit and back out to the beach. This time, just at the main beach. We thought of getting some hawker food for dinner that night.

There was a crowd that night, it felt pretty festive. After dinner we had a chat with the owner of the resort. Had a good laugh planning what we'd do if someone offered to rent a room for RM35k.

It was indeed a merry night :-)

Is this going to be an annual thing?

Pangkor Day 1

I vaguely remembered how this trip come about. We had one in October when we visited C in Miri. I guess that was different?

But we had planned this a while back. Because if we haven't, we'll sure not be able to secure any hotel room. The island is kinda packed today.

C and I (plus Mira) decided to try a new bus operator this time. It's a VIP coach, with 3 seats in a row. The bus was a little bit late that we reached the Lumut jetty at about 2PM. E and her boys are already waiting for us there.

Initially, we planned to have our lunch at Warong Mansur but alas, we were famished! We decided to have Nasi Beryani at Lumut waterfront.

We headed to the jetty an hour later (nasi habis, kena tunggu depa masak baru FML) and there was a loooooooooooobg queue, ohmai! We only checked in at 5PM.

Quickly changed, headed to the beach.

There goes my wish to just lay at the beach, clearing my mind whilst I soak up the sun! And no wonder I'm feeling tired right now.

There's still tomorrow, though 😊

We're planning to check out the night 'market' soon. TTFN.
