Over the long Wesak day weekend last year, sayang & I, with some collegues and friends too a short trip. Was a live on board thingy, to Tioman. Not the island itself, but some other small areas/islands around it. It was suppose to be a dive trip. They go from dive spot to dive spots. And.. did i meantion? WE LIVE ON BOARD! Know what that means? 24/7 on a woobly rocky lil boat. So rock while you eat, wobbled around the teeny bathroom while you shower or taking a dump. (come to think of it, i cant take a dump cos was bz concentrating on balancing myself). So anyways. as soon as i step on board, major seasick! Maybe because I was buzy packing the whole day, and a 6 hours ride in Daryls car all the way to some very ulu jetty. Dont get me wrong, although im complaining sooooooooooooo much, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE TRIP! (but wont go on a boat trip ever again.. :P )

We arrived at the jetty bloody late, almost 12 midnight.

Me trying my luck in getting some squids
Dead tired, car sick and sleepy. Heres Sayang struggling with our super (overpacked as usual) luggage. Poor thing..  I think was almost 10kg.. and look at the long walk on the jetty behind him… SOb SOb… feel so bad

Yet, I was excited to get on board. was in such  super holiday mood.

Finally, the big small boat taking us to the small big boat. :)   KALEEBSO!!! Crew

and other members welcoming us!!

Was feeling a bit sea sick, trying to get better by enjoying the sea breeze and having a hot cup of milo. BUt I went to sleep in like 5 minutes. Too nausea to even talk. Captain was kind, and gave me PLASTIC BAGS, ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

There is nothing more enjoyable than a hot cup of cocoa on a cold breezy night on a boat, watching the squids swim beneath our boat.

Sunrise!!!

 

Woke up with a great sunrise. Well, not so great actually… sunrise was blocked by that little island… but the few following days, managed to catch the sunrise… YIPPPEEEEEEEEEE

Living in the city, we hardly ever witness a sunrise or sunset. So this is practically heaven for me!

Picture time and breakfast time!!!!!!

One of the 1st to PIG OUT!!

Food is just so tempting. And the fresh air made me really really hungry!!!!!!

Breakfast is just heavenly.

Eating breakfast, feeling the breeze and watching the sunrise
Plenty of choices, super good indomee!!

After breakfast, time for the divers to do ther 1st dive for the trip. Me & sayang dont drive. So hmmmmm… what should we do? Sayang spotted a little beach nearby our boat, looks very deserted.. and PRIVATE. Hehehehhe… time to make some fantasies come true!!!!!!! Just us, nice morning sun, clean beach, coral spot for snorkling… WOOOHOOOOOOO

Captain was really nice about us going to the beach. Told his crew to send us there with the speed boat, and set a time for him to pick us again. SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Was really really happy to have a little quiet moment just the two of us. Its pretty strange walking around a deserted beach and island. Reminds me of cast away!!! hahahaha… luckily Kaleebso stayd near us to keep an eye.

CHilling out with a beer
Sayang went snorkling.. I LAZY! so lepaked by the beach, playing sand, enjoying the morning sun. Tried to make a sand castle, but dunno how. Sand was super fine and felt so good. Rolled around a little, whole body covered in sand. Saw some teeny crabs running around and toward the water.. hehehe.. wonder if they will bite? Sayang had so much fun snorkeling. Saw some pretty nice corals, and some fishies. I have a feeling he is taking up diving soon… and.. sigh… sob sob… I have a big problem with my balance and will never take up diving.. sob sob. 3 days after the trip I am still feeling dizzy… argh… im such a weakling.. :(

Throughout the whole trip, we did nothing but eat, play card, took pictures and sleep. Of course, all the time enjoying the rocking motion of the boat, breathe fresh air and most of all, watching sunsets and sunrise. This is truly a memorable trip for me!
