Redang - Part II

Sunday, March 2, 2008

Finally finished editing and uploading 1/3 of the pictures!!

I've no idea how we ended up snapping SOOO many pictures!

It was really hard to narrow down the pictures because we had tons of good ones :)

Anyhow...

Our Redang Holiday - Day 1 (22nd February, 2008)

Drew hasn't been on a plane since he was SIX so you can only imagine how JAKUN he was...

Took off at 7.05am! Yawn!

The pretty, fluffy clouds!


We arrived less than 45 minutes later at the Kuala Terengganu Airport where Laguna sent us a bus to bring us to the Jetty!

In the bus...

And after another less than 45 minutes, we arrive at Laguna Jetty!

We lingered around while waiting for the 10am speedboat to arrive and discovered some stalls selling food, beverages & some trinklets.

Stocked up on our water and snacks and something caught Son & Jean's attention!

The multi-purpose straw hat.

Trying to make the pink straw hat work but failed miserably.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Our little farmer. Haha.


Mana tahu, our two darlings actually bought the multi-purpose straw hat!!

Our fisherman friends.

The camera crew.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
LOL. Fisherpeople at work.


Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
HAHAHA. I can't believe my girls got suckered into doing that pose!! HEHEH. They look sooooo darn funny and adorable.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Four of us & a sleeping Marcus.

And at 10am sharp, a little speedboat picked us up...

Marc, Ren, Motion-Sick-Drew & Sheng.
Mind, we left the jetty less than 5 minutes only. Poor Drew.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Brian a.k.a Richard, King & Shaun.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
The four of us again!

The seas were still pretty rough and the tide was low so the little speedboat was necessary to bring us out to the open sea to transfer us to the bigger speedboat.

The larger speedboat was nice, huge & air-conditioned but the rough seas made us all queasy (you can only imagine what Andrew had to go through) so we chilled at the highest level of the boat to get some air.

Jean & Sheng.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
The four of us & the big blue! The view was soooooo pretty.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
The big blue.


After a disastrous over an hour boat ride (I actually puked once & poor Drew puked NINE times), we FINALLY reached our island!!

BUTTT... we still had to take a lil' tram to our Hotel.

Riding on the tram.

SO..

After travelling for roughly 4 hours via LAND, SKY & WATER, we finally... FINALLY...

ARRIVED:

Laguna Resort @ Redang Island!

Our rooms were pretty awesome too! And we had the luxury of having 2 persons to a room!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Drew all snugged up already. He needed rest badly, that poor boy.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Part of the loo. Didn't seem appropriate to add in the toilet bowl, haha.

And off we were to have some lunch!

After a good lunch, we had some rest and soon enough, were ready to hit the pool for some tanning!

After tanning, what better way then to cool off with a yummy coconut drink!


And then, it was time to HIT THE BEACH!!!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Yipeeeeee!!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Wooooowwwieeeee!!

Stupid King was so lousy that he failed miserably trying to capture us three in the air! Only I, with the power photography skills, managed to snap these pics.

And if you're wondering why Ju & Aaron were M.I.A, well, they took a longer than usual nap ;) Heheheh.

No laaa. I'm sure they were both just really tired.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Me & Drew :)

You have
GOT to check out these awesome waves:

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
HUGE!! The fun part was, it was not too big that we would all have drowned but it was huge enough for us to spend 3 hours playing with the waves, haha.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Richard, King, Marcus, Shaun, Sheng & the killer wave!!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Me!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Me & Jean & the lil' float that Jean brough along! Haha. That float was the BEST thing that was brought along. We had soooooo much fun with the float. The substitute for a surfboard.


Check out this vid of us trying to work the float as a surfboard!
(Mind, it was our first few attempts, later on, we got really good but my cam batt died on us so didn't get a chance to make a video by then)



Hahaha! It was sooooo much fun! Did you see the crazy wave that threw me off? It came so fast I didn't know what hit me. I didn't even have time to scream!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Riding the waves!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Craze.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Spot me. Haha!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Richard, Shaun, Me, Drew, Jean & Sheng!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Group picture!

Our shadows.

The sunset :)

And by the time it was dark, we headed off to wash up and to grab some dinner.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Drew & I camwhoring. Hehe.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Having dinner!

Jean's fork looks as though it's up her nose but she insisted she was pointing the fork to the cam. You decide ;) Haha.

And that about wraps up our first day in Redang!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Good night, y'all!!

Stay tuned for more :)

As much as I want to remain happily blissfully hypnotized by all of the bikini pics, there's something about "the rising sun" pic that just does it for me. Kodos to the photographer.
