Redang Trip (Day 1)

Just came back from Pulau Redang with Angela yesterday night to have our so called “honeymoon” there, it was real tiring because we took bus all the way up there and the journey eaten up approximately 6 to 7 hours. You will just either get stucked in the bus or the speed boat along the journey which takes you a day to reach Redang.

Stepped out from home at 9pm and reached Putra Bus Station at around 9:30pm as our bus’s departion time was at 10pm. The bus was kinda puntual as it departed at 10.05pm. Well, once we got up to the bus the first thing that we did was…sleep. The environment in the bus was quite comfortable but, the driving skill of the driver woke us up every once in a while. Not too sure if he was in a rush as it speeded through bums everytime and jumped us around in the bus. After all the waking-up-once-in-a-while sleep, finally we reached the Kuala Terengganu Bus Station at around 5am in the morning.

Waited for an hour plus for our resort’s bus to pick us up. The bus reached at round 6.30am and we still gotta wait for additional 1 more hour after we got into the bus for some haven’t-reached-people from Singapore. So then, the bus took us to an old street somewhere in Kuala Terengganu to have our breakfast.

The restaurant was kinda old and classic. We ordered baked bread with butter and kaya and hot milo, while waiting I shot a picture of each of them.

Headed back to our bus right after our breakfast and we were boarded to the jetty to Redang. It took us an hour to reach to the jetty again then 45 minutes on boat to Redang. It was really tiring for spending so many hours of journey to reach Redang but you will eventually feel that’s worth of it as you see the color of the sea turning from green to blue…a really clear blue that you can even see through to the undersea world.

Look at the golden sand, blue sky and the see through water, aren’t they just great? We then proceeded to the reception counter for briefing and being checked in to our room. After we’ve settled down and rested for a while in the room, it was time to have our lunch. The food there was not as bad as I’ve expected, the food there was quite ok and tasty and pretty much choices too.

Went to walk around with my camera and shot some pictures. 

After hanging around at the beach, it was the time for our very first snorkeling session! We were brought in to the middle of the sea which the water wasn’t so deep, just around err..10 feet and above like that. It was really a good experience seeing the undersea world with your own eyes. It was really nice that the fishes was surrounding you and making you feel like dancing with them. Unfortunately, there were no pictures taken cause I don’t have that much of money to get a water proof casing for my DSLR. After an hour, off we went back on boat and headed back to resort. It was already Tea Time by the time we reached our resort.

Headed back room after that, and fell asleep right after we bathed as we were really tired after the snorkeling session.

It was already at night when we woke up, and we were late for our dinner. OMG! Fortunately, there were still food left for us to eat =S and that was our dinner…BBQ on the first night.

While I was enjoying my dinner, I saw the moon out there. It was really round and clear! So I was tempted to zoom in and give it a shot half way of my dinner.

Right after our dinner, we went for a walk at the beach and seek some night life at redang. We found this life band at the resort next to ours so we decided to just sit down and have a drink. The band performed quite well, stayed there for about an hour and headed back to room after that to rest and prepare for the next day of adventure again. You guys too prepare for the part 2 of Redang trip. chaoz.
