Krabi- Koh Phi Phi (DAY 2 ITINERARY )

Woke up early as 7.30am  (8.30 am Malaysia time) to have breakie so that we don't starve ourself during the day cause we will have 2 snorkelling activity. Koh Phi Phi is a very large island which consist of Koh Phi Phi Don & Koh Phi Phi Ley. 

We had our ride on this antique bus (lol) it even have holes on the back seat floor but is alright cause the distant to our hotel to the pick up point was not far just 10 minutes. So we took few picture in the bus. As you can see the bus is so retro in side they even have a speaker box and fan hahaha

Me & the gals

The guys (they are still in ubah mood) Post election effect.

Close up with our speed boat of the day we are riding this for the trip to explore Koh Phi Phi. Damn love the shorts bought it from roxy and is water proof ideal for beach!

Breathtaking view of bamboo island this is our first stop we are given 45 minutes to swim and take picture. Not sure why does it call bamboo island- there are non bamboo existent at all.   

A close up on the bamboo island. We walk along the beach till the very end and the view were all the same LOL.

Okay pose pose 

With the bf

After that we had our first snookering and I did not take picture of it and idk and forget where is the place is in the middle of the sea hahahaha. 

Non edit purely taken from ip5 just to proof that the water is super green LOL along the way all the sea looks exactly like that! This is when we pass by Viking cave and our boat did not went near in the cave.

Later on arriving Maya Island there was so many boats and tourist on the island unlike bamboo island.Maya Island is a part of Koh Phi Phi Ley

Having fun as we are given another 45 minutes to explore around but actually nothing much to do at Maya Island only the view was awesome. Wanna see how awesome?

Okay is the previous blog picture hahaha! You know going to the beach and we scare our camera get soak so yay! We took picture with only ip5. But still damn nice right? The view although is crowded and we cant even swim compare to bamboo island. 

So next stop middle of no where near maya island hahaha idk the name of the next stop hahahaha....

Can you see those fishes- crystal clear water this is the stop after Maya island and this is the place we stop for the second snorkelling.I got to see nemo and many more fish I was so happy back then compare to the first stop of snorkelling this was far more awesome and I get to feed the fishes ^_^ 

Manage to get some picture with the fish! And I just notice that my skin was damn white too (see my whity leg! LOL) But I got sun burn as the sun kissed me too and I felt the sun burn skin tone was kinda attractive hahahaha 

After that we went to Koh Phi Phi Don and had our lunch buffet and they serve less attractive meal T_T everyone was hungry back then and each time the kitchen delivers fried chicken all the eyes are on them and I got to eat only one piece not hungry at the time but my friends seems so sad. Moral of the story bring some bread in case you are hungry.

The only picture I took from Koh Phi Phi Don hahaha so sad cause the island is not that nice and I feel in love with Maya Island back then. hahahaha it has many hotels and shops around we just had a few walks around after our lunch. Back then Koh Phi Phi Don was hit by tsunami and that's why the view are changing from time to time. So after lunch we received a complimentary bottle coke - "Refreshing". Then we went to monkey Island where the island was all monkey no pictures not fancy monkey LOL.

After that we headed back and we pass by the chicken island. It was around 3.30pm when we heading back and its SUPER sunny day! 

Back to hotel bath and hunt for dinner! We went to Family BBQ it was located up hill and is just the name BBQ nothing related to BBQ at all LOL the tomyum was great! Then we shop again at 7-11 hahaha.

That's the end of Day 2! Ending with a SUMMER SWAG picture!

Krabi Trip Day 1 (May 2013 4D3N)

This is a Day 1 post for Krabi 4days 3 night trip in May 2013. 

From Krabi Airport we have our transport ready waiting for us! I love their efficacy we booked krabi shuttle service last minute during midnight before arrival (and yes the next day the shuttle is still ready for us). It is more affordable than sitting a bus to our hotel (the bus available in the airport look crappy

The hotel as I mention before was Areetara Resort the hotel and I'm good with the hotel, I think most of krabi hotel are the same hahahaha. Didn't take much photo of the hotel. Oh and the total time from airport to our hotel was approx 30 minutes.

Our room was garden view and I think pool view seems cooler we want to upgrade to pool view but unfortunately the room was fully booked.

View from the Reception Area

These is the pool view room you can see they have emerald pool (which is kinda small) from the room you can jump right in to the swimming pool.

Basically on the first day we went to rent a bike and drove our way to survey around the area. The bike rental was 200 Baht (RM20) per day! It is a must to rent a bike because our hotel is located quite far from the shops and the beach plus the weather was super duper hot but not to worry they have mobile food store (that will drive around) near the hotel that sell drinks, food & fruits if you do not want to walk further. 

We also bought our island tour package from the bike rental which was located 5 minutes away from out hotel. The package was a full day trip to Koh Phi Phi Le which includes 2 snorkelling session and few island of Koh Phi Phi Le and lunch is provided and it worth 1000 Baht (RM100) after bargain ^_^

So we drove all the way along the beach and below picture are all from Ao Nang Beach which located near our hotel. 

Ao Nang beach water was not crystal clear. 

Panorama view nice? It was sun setting. 

The sun setting effect picture

Edited HDR picture from my iphone (cheated) hahaha! Nice? I enhance the effect to give the beach more over whelming feel since the beach is not crystal clear hahaha.

We simply had our lunch in a restaurant not worth stating out since nothing special about that and after that we went back to the hotel and swim! Basically first day was it.

Oh I want to highlight one thing! If you were in Thailand their 7-11 is the best (much better than msia for my opinion) their 7-11 stuff are much more cheaper than the mini market outside. 

Make sure you try this bread from Le Pan Bakery it cost RM1.20 and they have lard, crab stick, chicken and tuna flavour too. 

Love this so much I bought it everyday and is good. Tips: can buy for boat trip since you will be snorkelling and will be hungry. 

Okay till then I will post Day 2 soon! Stay tuned!

KRABI 2013

I went to Krabi Thailand during the second week of May. We have a group of 10 crazy people and it was fun! We have a 4 days 3 nights for this beach trip and we stayed at Areetara Resort Ao Nang Krabi.

Below are some sneak peak picture will wrap up all in details in a another blog post! 

Breath taking view at our first day trip at Maya Island 

The entire sea view journey to each island was breath taking as well which include the snorkeling activity.

Went for a swim at Bamboo Island and drank some sea water too.

Joysan @ maya Island

Yeah and I jumped quite high  

Stay tuned for my next post, besides we spend lots of money contributing to Ao Nang Beach 7-11 for our entire trip and there is the only place for us to shop happily.

LANEIGE Snow BB Soothing SPF 50+ PA+++ Cushion Review

I got this FREE sample of Snow BB Soothing SPF 50+ PA+++ from Laneige Facebook. Redeem it from Isetan KLCC was lucky back then because Parkson KLCC sample ran out!

So the sample size was 4g and I got it in NO.21 Natural Beige and that is the only colour available for sample but  I think for sale they have four colour to choose from.  I think previous they have this Snow BB Soothing Cushion product too but is in SPF 30 and I maybe they have improve the formula.

The box

From the box it claimed to be for whitening with sun screen and yes SPF 50+ PA+++  is a lot for face and for my face products I only have Biore sunscreen which is SPF 50+ PA+++  too and I always wanted aface product that contains SPF 50+ PA+++ that will be ultimate! It even claim that is sweat proof which is good because of our humid weather we tend to sweat a lot by the time we walk out from our house our make up will gone~~

The container 

Back of the container 

So here is the there is a mini sponge, just take the sponge and dab the Snow BB soothing and apply evenly on to your face. The sales assistant told me that it can be use as make up base too. I tried it on my face and it give me a healthy look (less make up look) which can hide the uneven skin tone of my face. Although it cant cover much blemish but is okay for me. Will consider buying the full size ^_^
