Maldives in Thailand @ Koh Lipe (Day 3)


A day was meant for FREE & Easy. The best day for exploring our own island where we stay. It’s neither big nor small to go around for a day.

Maldives in Thailand (Day 3) – Koh Lipe Island

To get on whole island by foot is not impossible. It’s only 2km long and 1km wide. With 2 main beaches each with their own. The busy one called Pattaya beach with wide beach stretched in a long crescent of fine white sand.

Sunrise Beach (where I stay) has views of several small nearby island and cool onshore breeze most of the year. It’s located opposite Pattaya beach, with just a few resorts and bars. No cars on the island and thankfully few motorbikes only. Therefore, I can assure the whole island can be explored on foot in couple of hours.


Round the Island – 2D1N Pangkor Island Trip


Pangkor Island, located at Northeast of Peninsular Malaysia is a destination that I choose to have my simple round the island trip on my own in 2D1N only.

Purposely planned prior to my celebrate anniversary and also a place where I went during my childhood. Due to this, I really wish to visit again to explore past memories. Pangkor Island is a simple island where you can explore on your own, alternative for engaging any tour travel company. To come to this, I’ve just rented a scooter (bike) to explore on our own.

Located not far from KL & Selangor, anyone can have a holiday of island which do not need long hour drive. By stopping at Lumut Jetty, you can just buy a return ticket, board 30 mins ride via speedboat and you can call your holiday straight away.


Amazing Race 2012 @ Langkawi


Amazing Race 2012, an event held by GTO of Standard Chartered Bank. Without any experience prior joining this event, apart from Treasure Hunt, I was left amazed when it comes.

At first thought, Amazing Race was all about the jungle or highway race. It was wrong. It’s a challenges/tasks to be completed prior each destination stated in CLUE paper. Destination this year is Langkawi and we travel all the way from KL to Langkawi in 4 hours at least.

A team formed by 3 members with me as driver. Started from KL in the early morning and ended at Langkawi Lagoon Resort where all task clues were given. Skipping any tasks will cause stuck and disqualified.

Tasks only revealed when we reach designated place. We required traveling one place to another, hence car transportation is required.

This event run 2D1N over the weekend, hence we’d our short holiday cum challenges. It was too fun to miss it!


Beach & Rainforest Trekking


By focusing solely on beach & hill-hiking activity on the weekend, we’d nowhere to go other than Tanjung Tuan Forest Reserve Park & Pulau Intan beach. The famous landmark the representing this place is Tanjung Tuan Light House.

Beach & Rainforest Trekking – Tanjung Tuan

I organized this as part of Perhentian Island Challenge 2012 physical training preparation. I’d a group of 13 who joined me for this training. I hope everyone enjoy it although few of them never expect it to be too tough.

Tanjung Tuan, a stretch of Port Dickson beach, provides a jungle trail through the coastal will lead to white sandy beaches and a small island called Pulau Intan. Is the best kept secret of Port Dickson at the tip of Tanjung Tuan?

A series of walking through the jungle up to the trek of Batu Putih (similar to Tabur Hill) overview of Port Dickson coastal.


Gunung Rajah – A Physical Challenging Mountain


As the title mentioned, Gunung Rajah is a mountain that bring you to the challenge of physical and mental. Due to its time-consuming and length route (32km for two ways) in ONE day, it can drain you totally.

Gunung Rajah – A Physically Challenging Mountain


I’m up to the challenge. That’s the BIG reason I respond to the invitation send by a hiker group to Gunung Rajah in ONE day. The key point of reconsideration is always the distance (32km return way). I’ve never done such distance before. I’ve doubt but open for challenge.

The event started at 6.00am with participation of over 100 hikers. All gathered at car park (Chamang Waterfall site) for a briefing. Experienced hikers are present with well-prepared, judging from outlook itself.

I’m just a beginner with some basic equipment. Even though I’m prepared both physically and mentally, my ability to reach the PEAK was in doubt. I failed to reach the peak due to time commitment for each check-point has delayed.

Organizer has put all the distance (in KM) marker along the way and yet, I miscalculated the time required and fall behind the schedule.
