Day 1 : Pulau Pangkor

Saturday, July 19, 2014

Honestly, I've never heard about Pulau Pangkor before.

When Lysa and Hariz suggested that we have a short getaway there, I was honestly having doubts. "Is the water clear? Is it safe there?" Plus I'm not a fan of beach vacation because I can't participate much in water activities because of my glasses/contact lens.

Which now, as you know, is no longer a hoo-ha anymore! HEHEHE 

Anyway back to the story, in the end, despite the uncertainties and minor setbacks we faced, the three of us managed to book a one way ticket to Lumut, Perak. We boarded the bus from Golden Miles at midnight and boy, were we excited or whut!!

Ten hours later.....

Immediately purchased our ticket back to KL and ferry ticket to Pangkor. Since we still have ample time to waste before the ferry arrives, we roamed around Lumut to look for nice backgrounds to....

Of course it would be too cray cray to join the queue so here's their muke-tak-bersalah pretending to talk about the GoPro when actually they're slowly menyelit from the side and cutting the queue lol

What else can I do on the ferry other than snapping 2732867 pictures of myself, right?

Rented two bikes for our three days in Pangkor for only S$60.

Checked into our hotel room and straight away explored the island. First place, Dutch Port!

The best fried bananas and keropok lekor we've ever had!! Not forgetting the coconut drink that we never fail to get for ourselves every single day there.

We had dinner at one of the warung stalls next to the beach. As always I was skeptical about eating at such places, as you know OCD cum fussy eater me is forever concerned about food and place cleanliness. We ate there anyway since there's no other choices plus I didn't want to be such a brat, and it turns out the food wasn't that bad after all (plus I didn't get any diarrhea heh heh so it was good). In fact it was the best fried maggie I've ever had! The owners of the stall are such nice and friendly folks, and we guess the reason why our food tasted so heavenly is because it was made with so much love :)

We spent the whole night at the night market in Teluk Nipah beach before heading back to the hotel to recharge ourselves for the next busy day. Day two - water activities day!
