I went to Krabi earlier this month with six of my friends. Two boys (our drivers slash bodyguards slash awesome not-gay boys lol) and five of us girls. Trip ni tak plan lama pun like i usually do whenever im going somewhere. We were having our seafood supper dekat Jalan Alor that night then suddenly all of us was like "Eh jom p a vacation somewhere bla bla ...", then two weeks after that terus p Krabi.
We went by F's Alphard which is very nice of him nak drive all the way there, but with S' help too of course. We were on the road for 8 hours. Letih but satu pengalaman yang tak dapat dilupakan. The locals 90% naik motorcycle tak pakai helmet. Naik pulak satu motorcycle 3 orang. Memang berani. Kami cari jalan malam malam buta berbekalkan map pekak haha and luckily we managed to find our beautiful hotel in Ao Nang that is The Cliff. But sebelum sampai tu we asked help from the locals. Local #1 tak nak ambil duit yang kami bagi pun but we really forced him to take it. The locals memang baik baik and friendly. Locals #2 (sorang perempuan, seorang lagi perempuan jadian or as they call it there 'ladyboy', dan sorang lagi baru ala ala nak jadi 'ladyboy'. The locals there tak boleh cakap English so kena lah pandai pandai hentam bahasa bagi depa paham. Ladyboy #1, her/his name was Mona, sempat lagi hit on F and bagi no phone hahaha siap ajak kami lepak dekat this bar/club yang dia selalu lepak with her/his friends. But we didnt go lah sebab after check-out we went straight to Railay.
Railay memang satu island yang cantik sangaaaaaaaat and sangat sangat romantik! If ada sapa sapa yang finding a place to go for a honeymoon trip, please go to Railay and stay at our resort. Its the best! We stayed at the two bedrooms private villa. Ada own pool and jacuzzi. Duduk situ memang tak perlu nak keluar mana sebab the room itself ada semua benda. Bukak lah lagu sampai pecah speaker pun i dont think people will come to bother you. After midnight semua lepak dekat dalam pool and we played games. It was fun. Im starting to miss the trip and the crazy bunch, sighhhh. Sebab that day sampai dah lambat, we didnt do any activities pun. Lepak dekat bilik lepas tu pergi dinner. Seafood dinner. Sedappp! But from what i see kan, dekat sana halal food is kinda pricey. So dari mengelakkan kena tipu, better ask or check-out the price first. That night we played 'Truth or Dare'. Haha man it was a scary game i tell you. Too much infooooo we all got haha thanks to the game!
The next day we went snorkeling! My first time. I was scareddddddd. But the boys was with us all the time so tak lah takut sangat. We passed by Poda Island or Chicken Island sebab pulau tu bentuk macam kepala ayam hehe then we went to the beautiful Maya Bay. The place where the movie The Beach was shot at. It was beautifuuuuuuuuuul. Air crystal clear color biru okay? And you can see the fishes and corals all around you. Then we went to few places i cant remember ... hidden lagoon dengan apatah lagi. Hidden lagoon pun sangat cantik. Pendek kata, semua lah cantik dekat sana.
Had lunch at Phi Phi Island. Out boatman was very friendly and nice. Bila approaching Phi Phi Island dia cerita yang the island tu is his home and he lost his family, he lost everything masa tsunami. Kesian dekat dia. Oh before sampai Phi Phi Island, kaki Selina kena corals sampai berdarah teruk so we went to the hospital which tak nampak langsung like a hospital, more like a clinic dekat the island. Had lunch, mine wasnt good. Bought few souvenirs for the ones back at home.
After Phi Phi we went back to our hotel. Mandi mandi then get ready for dinner. The first night at Railay we didnt get to check-out the island so on the second night we went. Turned out lagi banyak restaurants, resorts etc and it was so lively there. We ate dinner at this restaurant yang at the end sekali. Service was reaaaaaaaaaaaaaal slow but the food was great so it made up for the tortoise service. The live band was good too. Definitely going back there again whenever im in Railay. After dinner us girls went for our massage and manicure/pedicure session. Wani, Selina and i did the coconut oil massage. It was so goooooooooooooood and our body smelled so delicious lepas tu. Ida and Intan did the traditional Thai massage. And we did our nails too. We were excited sebab manicure/pedicure only RM20 sebab tu nak buat tengok tengok you know why it was so cheap? They didnt even scrub apa apa, tak rendam kaki apa pun, tak buff the nails pun! They shaped it lepas tu color terus. Color pulak cheap ass nail polish but we didnt mind. It Krabi, not London. Takkan nak expect nail polish from O.P.I kan?
Then balik to our room kemas kemas barang and tengok dvd. Lepas tu pukul 1am lapar gila so i bugged Saiful, Firdaus and Wani suruh temankan beli makanan so we went back near the restaurant we went earlier. Everything was closed so we settled for burger je and two Pink Ladys. Sedaaaaaaap!
On our last day, Firdaus went on the boat alone to check-out his car. He was worried sebab tinggal dekat Ao Nang for 2 days. We went later after. Sempat lagi beli rotee pisang sebelum balik. Rotee pisang sedap sangat. Rinduuu rotee pisang. I had 7 rotee when i was there okay. You must try it. It is to die for!
Sampai dekat Ao Nang, we bought more souvenirs. Wani and Intan bought paintings. Cantik sangat and it was freakin' cheap! Ida told me pernah nampak something like that dekat Ikea for almost RM600. Lepas tu terus balik. Time balik tu semua lapar gila. Bila dah keluar Krabi susah nak cari kedai makan yang halal. Jauh jugak before we found one. Dekat kedai tu jumpa botol Fanta yang kaca haha semua terus jadi jakun! I wanted to bring back 10 bottles tapi tak boleh sebab they must return it back to the factory. Gila classic botol kaca! I wonder if Malaysia still has it.
Makanan dekat situ sedaaaap. Especially the ayam percik. We had alot for lunch! Time nak balik tu, nampak coconut sweets dekat counter tu lepas tu nak beli lah and masyaallah susah sangat nak make the locals to understand what we wanted. We wanted to get 3 but they only had 2 on the counter. 30 minit jugak lah berdebat dekat situ sampai fed-up pun ada but we didnt give up! Sampai terpaksa gunakan pinggan tunjuk. Contohnya; pinggan #1 + pinggan #2 = pinggan #3. Ya Allah memang the locals tak paham langsung English or Malay. When they finally know apa yang kami nak and went to get it, me and my friends high-fives each other crazily and jumped with joy hahaha we made a scene there! The customers ... locals too recorded us using the phones and laughed together with us. It was an unforgettable experience!
I miss Krabi a lot and i reaaaaaaaaaaaaally want to go back there again soon! But this time nak naik scooter dengan elephant there! Tak sempat buat during this trip sebab we were only there for four days. Banyak masa habis dekat atas jalan. But overall it was a great trip with a reaaaally great company! Many thanks to Firdaus sebab without him i dont think this trip jadi.
Insyaallah end of next month we're going to Perhentian Island or to Sabah, but without the boys. Sebab we heard the corals there lagi cantik dari dekat Krabi. We'll see about that. Watch this space! ;)
