Alhamdulillah. Selamat sampai dari Pulau Perhentian.
The trip was great.
We drive starting from Thursday afternoon, from KL to Trengganu. Stay a night in Besut. Then on Friday afternoon, take a boat to Pulau Perhentian Kecil.
The sea is a bit rough, which makes the trip very exciting. Due to the rough sea, our boat anchored at Coral Bay. We jungle trip for about 10-15 minutes before arriving at Symphony Chalets at Long Beach.
Our activities inclusive of snorkelling, watching mat and minah saleh sunbathing, watch the sunrise, take loads of pictures and for the ham radio people, what else except talking and playing with their radios?
For snorkelling, we went to the corals near Perhentian Island Resort beach, Basi Bay, Romantic Bay and Turtle Bay. Saw loads of beautiful Nemos and Dorys, a couple of sea urchins, a turtle and quite a number of sea cucumbers. The corals are simply breathtaking, literally. The fishes are friendly, especially at Basi Bay. Try to float around, and these fishes would simply follow you, nibbling at your fingers. Bring some bread, and you can feed these fishes and take a few pictures of you being surrounded by aquatic friends.
Even though the monsoon is not yet officially over, the trip is a success. Yeah, we are not able to get loads of fishes for the BBQ or go to Shark Point. But hey, the rest are fantastic.
Yet to get the pix. But I will load some of it up later.
Ciao. Have to work now.

Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
