Lurve it to the max!
Was down with flu days before the due trip to Tioman with the Production Team and my family. I have never had this kind of flu before, normally (which is rare ) it'll just took me less then 2 days for me to recover but until today m still coughing and sneezing, A bit turned off during the trip, nevertheless, twas a fantastic getaway, after so long. The last time i was in Tioman was 8 years ago.
We came later then the rest of the production team, they took the 0730hrs boat to Tekek and took the 4WD half an hour journey across the island to Juara. We, instead, took the 1100hrs boat straight to Juara and it took us almost 3 hrs. Tired..but as we arrived..the place is sooo damn worth it!.. Peaceful 'jamaican' place! Beautiful!
We stayed at Juara Beach Resort owns by the cool Mr Steven. This trip is for us the production crew, so the director belanja lah ;-). Approx. rm300 per person, incl. ferry, the 4wd, breakfast, lunch, dinner, island hopping ( snorkelling ) and the room, for 11 of us. Very reasonable off peak price.
First day, after resting..what elselah, beach and sea! here we come!. Had a good dinner. right after dinner, the whole island went blackout for a good 3 hours, still we had fun ! Celebrated one of us punya birthday.. after that we hit the sack..ready for the second day..
Second day, had a good breakfast..then we went snorkelling...wowwowieee!...we were brought to some superb, fresh, 'virgin' places. The kids were very happy, for the first time they tried snorkelling altho many times swallowed the the crystal clear sea water hehhee. Around 1500hrs we're back to the island. After dinner, i seriously need to have quality rest ( due to the flu ), so i took the acti fast and slept till after midnite...need to get up for EURO babe!... Had a great time watching the finals with Mr Steven, and also with several foreigners, a norwegian, sweedish, british, australians. While we were watching football, my significant other went fishing, and he got a baby shark..;-P..not bad. The next day we asked the chef to cook it...and he cook curry out of it..
The third day...took several more picts.. felt like i wanna stay there longerrrrr.....i dowanna leave this place!!!! We had the chance to take the 4wd across the island to Tekek, the so called road is very bumpy and steep as they're still sort of upgrading the route, not a bad journey, ive been thru worst before during my fishing trip years ago.
Arrived home after midnite.
Slept very soundly..three days without tv and news except the Euro..The next morning was very puzzle reading Mr John's blog *wink*..dono what is goin on...open up the news..and still puzzled..sayin to myself " why the heck is the 1998 story scandal hit the news again? "...and read more...and..saying to myself again....."oooooooo..new one..what THE!"
..need to go to anotha island... fast!....
