Pangkor trip....yeah!!!! 30Th AUG -1St Sept


Almost all of those staying at the west M'Sia been there before. So it's pretty hard to find some1 to step their foot on that island again. It's easily accessible as Langkawi, though i think it's not as famous as Langkawi, it still draw lots of tourists to it. So do i......., everytime i wanted to go Pangkor, they bound to be some1 who said they been there before, and it's nothing much to see. Luckily, my housemates - 2 gals and my Kuching roomate said yes to it, though one of them went before. Initially they were planning to go Xherating, and i suggested them Pangkor island. It was a pretty late and hurry decision made, arranging the bookings on the last minute.

WE drove all the way up to Bidor then Sekinchan to Lumut using the PLUS highway. Hehe, it set the record for my Kuching roomate to 1st time drive nearly 4 hours non-stop. It's yet another adventurous moments for me which we search for the shortest distance, then jz 'kia(hokkien)'. Very caution while on the road for we dun wana get lost and drive extra miles. But we made it all the way smoothly.......YEAH!!!!

Telok Anson....

Along the highway

Vast paddy field seen along the way....clear blue sky and green green paddy field.....YOU DUN GET TO SEE THIS IN KL NOR PJ, sad......

Finally we reached LUMUT jetty...Houg looking around.

BCheng anticipating and getting excited to see the sea!!!

Me v Houg and Xia :) The feel of sea breeze blowing against us is just so nice. It's been along time since i visited another island with beaches and such holiday mood (Dun count in Pulau Ketam, as Pulau Ketam is more of a fishing village on an island itself).

One can get to see Pangkor village which face the mainland along the journey to the jetty.

We stopped by the 2nd jetty called Pangkor Jetty which is nearer to the little Pangkor town. Most people stopped by here instead of the 1st jetty unless you stay on the northern part of Pangkor Island. We got our rented car (Thanx to BCheng for arranging a cheap yet comfortable transport), a kancil.

1st glimpse of the town are simple two rows of shophouses with mainly the Chinese as 'tao ke(hokkien)', selling mostly sea products, clothings , etc. There are many Pangkor taxis to hope on and sent you to your destination.
We got there pretty late dy, almost 6pm. Settled our dinner and to our place of stay. We stay on a more budject backpacker lodge nearby Teluk Nipah. The road to Teluk Nipah was pretty dangerous and have alot of uphill and slopes, some 15degree while some 35degree. The place we stayed are consist of more Malays. We were told to be more careful of ourselves there.

We spent the first nite jz strolling along the beach in front of us. Gazing at the stars, listening to the voice of the sea and chating. It's just so relaxing!!!!

The next day, we went for a boat ride and snorkeling, a RM25 package. Din bring along our camera, so no pics. SOri. It was very interesting to hear stories from the boatman telling all sorts of funny and AMAZING stories - Pangkor laut resort.....per nite > RM1000, foreign tourists like to dry their bananas and papayas on day time on the balcony whilst at nite......WHO noes!!! Then this and that hotel.......,Ms Michelle Yeoh frequent that island quite often...., breakfast costing few hundreds??? with superb services and spas in that private secluded island. Next, we were shown NATURE'S ART - different rock formations that resemble whale, a hand, foot, crocodile, tortoise, apple that have bitten by a WORM.......and small little plants that could survive on the rocks on their own. It's really amazing how such rocks ever existed. The boatman even picked up sea urchins and sea cucumbers to show it to us - the boatman had fun scaring people on boat with the slimy whitish gluey thingy from sea cucumber( really look like the sea cucumber ejaculated a whole lot of vyvyvy thick barley water, wahahahhah!!!) The snorkeling part at Pulau Giam was , well.......pretty bad and disappointing afterall - murky waters, though i can c the fishes yet it cant be compared to even KAPAS Island's experience (the only east MSia island i been to) and no corals.

After the boat ride, we began our island exploration. 1st off to Teluk Gedang....

Houg staring at the view....

BCheng, wat are you doing??

Next, to Dutch fort.....

Me n HOUG at the dutch fort

We went to this big factory selling all the junk food, sea products.....bought quite alot...hehe.

We went round the whole island, saw the airport and other beaches on the northern part, but too bad time is too limited due to we wanted to capture the we din explore other northern beaches or teluks.

Charlie's angel??? Nope..... 2 gals and 1 guy, heheh.

I really the photos below - of us jumping high with the sunset behind forming the shadows!!! It took quite a number of jumps to be able to get some pretty good photos, hehe. Rushing before the sunset 'hilang'.

4 of us.....IF ONLY we can stop time......

Near midnight, we enjoyed ourself at Daddy's cafe, a very nice ambiance, a higly recommended dine and relaxing place for people visiting Pangkor Island. I'm surprised many foreigners were there. The tables are located on the sandy beach under some shady trees with a few more steps to the sea with warm colorful lightings. The place is just right for a drink and chat and most of all, sit back and RELAX. Even best for couples. They had friendly and very hospitable waiter. We all really like this place.

Ms xia had a pretty lovely banana split at Daddy's cafe.

On our last day, as you can see the photo below, it's so hard to wake up...FATIGUE. haha

Still, we visit the temple nearby.....

Visit the rocks and another nearby beach, it so happened that the water here is much much clearer than the place we snorkel.....

I like this photo pretty much, it's the first time i managed to capture my housemate's sweet smile....haha.


We visited this 2 plants called " couple tree" , the boatman told us, it has always been the 2 of them on the rock, and they are growing taller together. IT''s so funny.

And the "couple tree" has a "light bulb" (the plant my friends stand beside) together with them, haha.

Well, a fun relaxing trip.....may our frenship be as beautiful as the little pretty colorful flowers below for always. :)

我错 与 心碎的感觉 的歌词


希望大家会喜欢 :)




如果被伤害过 还继续想你到底是为什么

告诉我 告诉我

如果被淘汰的 取代的原由也会是我错

又怎么 又是我错


也许 是我自己不顾一切不小心



也许 是我自己过于相信你蜜语

是我 任你放你才移情别意

是我 让爱失去



如果被伤害过 还继续想你念你到什么时候





两眉深锁的 唉声叹气

全身没力气的 拼命 找借口






闭上眼睛 还感觉你在

眼泪告诉我 你已离开




喊着你名字 泪水在流

Meaningful quoteS.......

Got all this meaningful phrases from one of the mails i received. I personally selected some of them to be blog in this short post which i deem are meaningful to me and can serve as sthg to ponder about for everyone :) With the purpose that those who read this post can found them to be useful and learn sthg :)

1st one, it's very common to find that every1 wants to win or become the successor in an arguments, which i think sometimes it really doesn't go that way. Jz as the phrases below said....agree to disagreements and you may found or learned sthg :)

Well, maybe alot of people are whining about their life so far.....this and that is so UNFAIR, yet don't u admit that your life is still GOOD??? Pls learn to appreciate it :)

IT's true that what u seen or heard about the success of a person may not potrait wat he/she went through !!!!

learn to forgive and you'll be happier!!!

This phrase here is very true :)

I like this....i always like to think that your future, happiness and the way you lead your life lies in our own palms!!! i usually tend not to believe in horoscopes or feng shui stuffs.....(though i tend to kept them as precautions), because you hold the key!!!

Well, i like this the best!!!! shud believe that the best has yet to come ......BELIEVE is the power and hope that kept you alive and throughtout all these years.....believe that you can and you will :)

Bukit Gasing......

Went alone to Bukit Gasing on a Sunday morning.....tot of exploring the place before asking ppl along......WEll, heard of this Bukit Gasing from frens and frens, and in adition, it's so near to my place of will be a "shame" that i did not climb it...wahahhahaha. I actually went to bukit gasing the evening before, however it was quite late when i enter the forest....though i went in with a fast's getting dark faster in the i decided to climb the next morning which is sunday :)

SO on the sunday morning, drove all the way down...then go in the entrance through the playground there....if i'm not mistaken, there more than 1 entrance as well more than 1 exit.
The track is quite ok, more of like jungle trekking, full of tress, roots. they are many forks inside it, that lead to different places, e.g the view tower, to the river, to the hanging bridge....etc.

This is the view from the view tower. Well, the view is just forest and nothing much. QUite boring to me, as i always prefer climbing peaks that offers great views.

As i'm on my own, i'm free to wander and explore around, so i trek anywhere and off beaten trek....some trek that are almost overgrown with 'lalang' ........sometimes u'll wonder where will it lead u to?? None the less, i dared eventually i end up at the place in the picture a kampung.....

So i trek again , went in the forest through another route.....back to the original place....
some part of the trek are pretty easy, u JZ NEED to walk. This forest is also used to educate students on school trips....

Shot of the signboard :)

I end up here from one of the fork, i can go to Pantai dalam condos from here, hehehe.

This tree looks coollllllll...........

This is the map....u'll notice there are 2 parts of bukit gasing.....i cant find my way to the upper part of the bukit gasing!!! DAMN IT....find and find ....jz din c it.....

Eventually u can enter the forest from one of the back alley of a housing area!!!

This is the hanging bridge of Bukit Gasing.....nthg special....!!!

A higher view of Pantai dalam condos from an elevated ground!!! I guessed this by far the best view from Bukit Gasing!!!!
To sum up, Bukit Gasing is suitable for exercise, treeking, sweat yourself....enjoy the forest....BUT dun expect pretty sceneries......hahaha.
