Menu A.

The interior.

Good morning in different languages.

Had a Nescafe tarik,

prawn noodles and

yellow noodles (this one was delicious!).

The bapuk buffalo at the entrance.

Vinny had banana pancake butter syrup.

10.54 am – Went to Zackry Guest House to collect

my deposit refund.

Vinny took over the wheels of MAX for about 1 hour.

11.44am – Arrived at the organic dragon fruit farm

somewhere off Kuah town.

Today I learned that dragon fruits grow off the edge of it’s branches. I wanted to buy a few for myself but too bad the workers there couldn’t understand a word I was saying.

12.08 pm – Arrived at Kilim Jetty. Called for the free boat ride to the floating Hole In The Wall Restaurant.

We were lucky and sat with the owner of

Hole In The Wall who was on the way to deliver goods to his restaurant.

It was such a nice place.

I liked the fact that it was a fish farm and we could pick our food live.

The menu.

We ordered ourselves a grilled local grouper,

a mantis prawn,

a prawn fried rice and

a mixed tom yam.

RM 25.

RM 9.

RM 6.

RM forgot but this was very delicious!

01.19 pm – Actually, we planned to go island hopping at 2.30pm but too bad it rained.

We waited for about half an hour for the rain to subside before

leaving for Kilim Jetty.

02.47 pm – There wasn’t much that we could do since it was raining and so we decided to go hotel hopping instead. Our first stop was The Datai,

a fancy hotel hidden far, far away from civilization. A night here costs RM2000.

The two horses at the lobby.

The Datai’s lily pond

full of big, medium and

small frogs. Full of it.

Hand towels instead of paper towels.

The basin.

The whole hotel was filled with all sorts of art like sculptures in the lobby and glass paintings on the wall.

The price.

The origin.

(How can you not be outstanding when you’re from ‘that’ state? Think Jimmy Choo. :twisted:)

The rooms from the outside.

03.15 pm – Next stop, The Andaman. Another RM2000 a night hotel.

The toilet was as high class as The Datai.

But still, credit goes to The Andaman as it was much more posh and grander than The Datai. The Andaman rooms are also slightly cheaper. The entire place was filled with greeneries.

The outdoor dining tables were between trees and

overlooking the sea below.

10.11 am – Met the host of our stay at Pondok Keladi, Marc. Thanks for showing us around the place.

Ben,

(sorry, forgot your name) and

Melissa.

12.17 pm – Drove over to the Oriental Village for the cable car.

The bridge connecting the village and the car park.

The super simple map and directions.

Eh? This ain’t Bangkok, is it? kapppppp
