[Guest Blog] Krabi Retreat

Hey everybody, today I'll be bringing you a very special guest to blog about his recent trip to Krabi, Thailand and he is MA BOY!!! HAHAHA

His photos from Krabi have been receiving many positive comments especially when they're just taken solely by an iPhone! I myself are very impressed as well :)

So we thought, why not blog about it? And have him blog about it personally too!! Haha we both feel that it's nice to have a different voice on this blog occasionally :)

This is my first time having somebody blogging on my blog and his first time blogging too hehe!

He actually wanted me to edit his language but I find that if I were to really edit it, it'll lose a lot of his writing colors so 95% of what he has blogged is unedited :) I'll add in some comments along the way to provide a little more details and also some of my point of view as an audience? haha

So sit back, relax and enjoy some Krabi and I'll now hand it over to ma boy :)

First time to Krabi, Thailand. You must be thinking it is full of water, sun and fun. It sure it is. Just let u guy knows first, all photos are taken with a Iphone. Okay now, let head back to all it begins...

This is actually my ORD trip and a few of my good buddies and me of course went to Krabi for the first time. We chose this place because it is cheap, relax and fun. Fun it is important! Who don't wants to have fun when he/she goes for a trip?

As soon as we arrive at the airport, we quickly go back to the hotel - or hostel as it has a room for 8 people - to unpack our bag. (They booked their hostel through Airbnb by the way!)

My own bed with a nice window.

Luckily the room does have air con or i will be the victim to the mosquito at night. And there are really a lot of mosquito flying around as it is a tropical country. Did i mention that the hostel do have wifi? Haha it does or I will not be able to access to internet! And that is very important to keep in contact with the people in Singapore. Well, the fun begin the next day when we went to Hong island.

Beach for boarding the longtail.

The other side of the beach.

We had chosen to go to Hong island is because it is closer to the main island - we do not want to stay long on the longtail - because it is just boring. Longtail, it is the boat that they are using to ferry us. Check out the photos below for the scenes that I had taken.

Once we reached the Hong island, we go for a swim and it is fun. Shortly afterwards, we go for Kayaking. It is tough because it is a long way to row around the island and I saw some jellyfish. I wanted to take pic but damned, my phone isn't waterproof. >< How I wish I had brought a waterproof camera with me. Anyway, my friend surprised us by bringing his GoPro camera to the trip.

Anyway, there is the fun and play, now it it the time for food. The food it is just too good to be missed. We had been to a few shops and our most favorite shop is the Boat noodles. This store here really surprise us. But I forgot to take the photo of the store. Sorry about that. ><

This is the boat noodles. (pork/beef)

You can choose to try either the pork or the beef with the noodle. I have no idea why it is called boat noodles, but we try this store is because the owner of the hostel we lived in recommend the store to us. That time we were to hungry and were looking for something good. The noodles is soft like the one in Singapore. However, the soup is different. It looks like mud and creamy but no, it tasted a little sour and spicy. It is something like tom yam but it is not. It is not that spicy and sour. Of course we do order some other food. Have a look below.

Waffles with caramel.

You will be surprised how good this tasted. It is one of the best in there. But the best of the best is below.

Fried bread with shrimp.

Who will thought of this? Fried bread with shrimp? It is a awesome nice! And I do that you will not believe me that this is a bread - it doesn't seems like one - but trust me, it is. With that sauce in the middle, it just melts in your mouth with the taste of sweetness, a little of sour and spicy. And CRUNCH! When u bite them.

Fried banana with caramel.

Surprise after surprise. This is banana - fried banana with caramel. This dish is different. Some people dislike the taste of banana I don't know why, but this, there is no banana taste. It is full of caramel flavor and it has same CRUNCHY taste when you bite them. How I wish I can go back there and taste it again.

Pancake.
Do you love McDonald pancake? This is a lot better than McDonald. Looks the same, but taste a lot better. It has a special sauce on it that make the pancake melts in your mouth. the soft tender pancake just erode off once you start to put it in your mouth.

The Joke - watermelon skin.

Like I said, we are here to have fun. So my friend and I are planning to trick one of our fellow friend in Singapore. We had the awesome fried banana and the fried bread finished - I mean down in our stomach - and set this one 'last' dish out. with some decoration around it we present to you, the watermelon skin. HAHAHA. And he did fell for it for a moment. 

Anyway, this is the end of my trip in Krabi, Thailand. Although there is more to it but it is not very interesting and yes, I had shared with you all the fun part and scenes in Krabi.
