There you go, now you're all set to go. If you wanna see what we experienced during the trip, please scroll down =P
All of us met up in Pudu (they're under renovation now so meantime, all the buses go to Bukit Jalil) about 5ish in the evening cause we were on the 6pm bus...why 6pm? cause the night buses are all full -_-"
yea, so that means we will be arriving in Mersing at about midnight, and bum at the jetty area til the first boat arrives at 6am....
oh, yeah, 3 minutes after the bus gerak, it stalled and we had to change bus....damn drama wei!
just some random kittens at the Mersing bus station
So how to kill 6 motherfucking hours at a small, dead town?
jump from one mamak to another...and TRY to stay up til the sun comes up
yes, fucking failz
err yea that's the number if you wanna ask about ferry times or bookings hahaha
First day, about 10.30 am and the boys are already roasted like Arabica coffee beans
and yes, these are the view from my room, using a zoom lens m focus
oh and it was only the first day that there's already drama. Tee Yew cut his foot and palm when he slipped on one of the rocks with barnacles and he wouldn't stop bleeding so they had to go by boat taxi to the nearest clinic in Tekek.... and the treatment only costed RM1
RM1 wei!!!! same cost as me peeing in a public toilet...cipet -_-"
I refused to go down during the noon heat so the boys joined me at the balcony of my room while waiting for Tee Yew and Cheese to come back from the clinic.
and yes, they just HAD to do this: -_-"
More views from my balcony, where we tan and have cancer sticks. And I think I was kinda annoying cause I was kinda anal about the room's cleanliness heh =P
I won't let them come in all wet and walk through with sand on their slipper.. no no.
I waited until about 3pm to go down to the beach, and I slept instead on swimming hahaha
apparently while I was sleeping and tanning, the sun shifted so only a certain part of my body were tanned.
The boys had a good laugh about this -_-"
Got up about 5-6ish, ran for a dip in water than ran back to take photos of the boys...
CAMWHORING TIME! (all using a 50mm 1:8)
and yes, these are the best photos out of the trip, due to the natural lighting and also the boys' lameness and craziness...
imagine la i have to deal with a bunch of boys for a few days...pain wei! haha
Leon the lioness
who was rockin my Rogue DIY cut-out tee and hairband.
Zen the poyo
Used the sun to create this effect:
The boys a la Manhunt
Leon the mermaid
love this paparazzi shot
Role playing...like a F Grade movie poster, no? haha
and yeah, I think Zen was trying hard to flex in this photo wahahaha
And I wanted this for a themed shot, ended up damn funny cause I can't stop laughing there lol
Sorry ah the Wonderboys photo damn tak jadi cause I was using manual focus and I'm as blind as a bat -_-"
After dinner? let's just save that story for hari2 tua hahahah and yes, I had a fun night laughing my ass off cause all the boys were burnt to crisp and they can't sleep on their backs haha
Snorkelling trip in 4-5 different spots....REMEMBER, if you wanna see sharks you HAVE to request from the abang bawak bot earlier on. Don't be like me, dah lepas pulau only ask, so cannot patah balik -_-
fattest cat I've ever seen!
Had BBQ dinner and we were just lazing around at the beach, singing and telling stupid stories.
UNTIL, the boys became jakun and started doing light photos...
not supposed to upload a photo of Zen membuat asap but this is the most proper photo of his name i could get...boy, you need to learn how to write on air properly.
Wang - ster
Wang-ster tried to draw a devil's horn but FAILED!
Zen and Wankster's fight scenes
Last day camwhoring, and back to reality! sobs =(
oh ok, that's how the hotel looks like from the jetty. One room can fit 3-4 ppl
And this is how clear the waters are....
