Hello ni hao howdy alohaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
I am backkkkk from the amazingly beautiful but mosquito-infested PULAU BESAR.
I bet many of you are dying to know how was the trip, was the place beautiful etc etc… So I shall not disappoint!
Besides, I promised the manager of Pulau Besar I’d promote his island when I get back,
so if any of you are ever planning to visit Besar, tell the manager you’re Jessica and James friend from Singapore and he’ll take good care of you!
I reached Singapore yesterday, but was too tired and too busy to update. Went for a sumptuous dinner with my Mummy and James, mmmmm soo gooood!
I’ve been having so much fun and good food these days that O levels just seem so far away. The truth is, it’s already soooooooo near. But like I said, I’ll start studying once I get back from Pulau Besar.
Which means tuition starts in like 2 days time! Yipeee.
Anyways. I’m a WHOLE LOT TANNER NOW!!!!
My tan lines are GROSS.
Even though I applied sunblock I’m still pretty much chao tah now
Ok I am VERYYYYYY pissed off cuz I was blogging for like 3 hours, I was FINISHING my post (only editing certain parts) when POOF!
I dunno WTF I PRESSED BUT MY WHOLE POST WAS GONE.
I am soooo fucking pissed off.
The previous post was so detailed and long. FUCK! Guess I’ll do a simpler one now.
In chronological order:
The most important stuff for my trip : My spanking new ipod nano from Nuffnang, my passport, my camera and my itinerary!
My luggage! =D
What did I pack? Uhmm… 3 sundresses, 2 shorts, 2 tops, 2 towels, 2 bikinis, 1 sarong-like cloth and the usual necessary stuff.
I know, alot for only 3 days! Hehehe. It’s not called being kiasu, it’s called being prepared for unforseen clothes disasters.
So anyway we had to wake up at 5am+++ on that day!
It was crazy, we had to reach the departure place at 6am. But it was all good, cuz the earlier we leave, the earlier we’d reach! More time for play.
We had to report at Newton Circus.
And my darrrllinnnggg Mummy drove us there! ILU MUM, thanks for waking up soo early just to drive us there. You Da Best.
When we reached Newton, I suddenly decided I was hungry so she drove us to Lido Orchard to grab McDonalds Breakfast then we went back to Newton Circus again. =x
it was time for us to LEAVE SINGAPORE!
We had 6 other angmohs in the van with us.
Oooh, eye candy
I LOVE ANGMOHS!! Not only because they are so HOT, they are also darn friendly.
I made quite a few angmoh friends in this trip, and I’m very happy!
Well offfff we go… the van was so hot, I couldn’t stand being awake so I fell asleep lying on James’ lap…
And when I woke up,
We were already in…. MALAYSIA!
See that malaysian flag in the background? Ho hum.
Honestly, the ride wasn’t very long.. About 2-3 hours max?
But it was kinda annoying since the ride was VERY BUMPY!!!
At times, I was convinced that if the van wasn’t fully covered I’d be thrown off my seat.
Wahhhh cannot stand Malaysia’s road, super uneven.
But it was soon all over when we reached a little town in the heart of Malaysia most commonly known for its Jetty :
We had a few hours of spare time before our Ferry would arrive..
So after chatting with some locals, we decided to head in the direction which they pointed out to be “TOWN”
And all of us in Singapore knows that TOWN = ORCHARD.
So I was amused as we walked towards their town and realized that town there basically meant a few coffee shops and some run-down shophouses.
Eeek! Oh well, the place is quite ULU ULU, so I wasn’t expecting very much anyway.
It’s just that the people there told me their town had shopping centres!!!! I saw none X___x
I wonder whats their definition of a shopping centre.. Hmm… not Paragon, definitely.
Anyway the stuff there = VERY CHEAP!!!
Your average pharmacy shampoo there can cost SGD$2+ when in Singapore, it costs like SGD$10.
Madness. Me and James bought a few stuff just because we wanted to have the cheap thrill of knowing we bought something underpriced. HAHAHAHA.
After mindless walking around in the SCORCHING WEATHER, I decided to get ice cream and we headed back to the Jetty area..
And what would Jessica and James do, all alone and stuck waiting for their Ferry in a foreign ulu land?
MAKE FULL USE OF THEIR PLAYGROUND, of course!
Hehehe I love this picture.
Check out me and baby’s MATCHING SPECTACLES. Soooooo cute.
Rofl I know it looks like the old man’s kind of sunglasses, but they’re not shades, they’re just transition lenses.
And I super love my transition lens because they make ALOT of difference! I never have to squint my eyes under strong sunlight anymore since my lens magically protects me.
Well, its SUPPOSED to be good anyway, since this pair of specs costed me 800 bucks!
After awhile, swinging around got kinda repetitive and boring,
We took more pictures (of course must take many many pictures la, it’s such a happy occasion that I never wanna forget!):
I love the vast blue sky, especially when there’s no tall buildings obstructing it like in SG!
Bad jumpers like me got to bend their knees all the way up to fake a high jump.
My baby loves the vast blue sky toooooooooo!
Hehehe him and his funny poses (“v”)
Then it was time for us to wait at the Jetty itself for our Ferry to arrive…
We got bored while waiting again, so we rummaged through our luggage and found:
aHAHAHAHAHAHA omfg I think it’s too cute to be true, having matching goggles and matching dark spectacles.
Kissy kissy baby.
I know we look ridiculous, but that’s just the way we are : CRAZY AND ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUSLY RIDICULOUS! =DDDDD
Awww hahaha he’s so hard to resist. He’s pretending to be underwater, thus the “hold the nose” pose!
Then we were told that our FERRY HAS ARRIVED!
We quickly snapped more photos, so here’s one last silly billy photo before we went off:
HAHAHHAHAHA OMG LOL KK MYBABYBOY IS TOO CUTE ITS KILLING ME.
Thus we proceeded towards our “Ferry”…
Wait a minute, was it really a ferry?
It DID state F.E.R.R.Y on our itinerary.
But our majestic FERRY turned out to be a…
A speedboat indeed. Ooops. Hehehehe.
What a major difference, but we were delighted to have the speedboat instead, cos it’s much more private and it has more “FEEL”, if you get what I mean!
With our hearts racing, we stepped onto the speedboat knowing that this is our transport to our adventure on an island…
All aboard “Ferry 101” !!
We had to wear life vests according to the crew,
and there was this very big sized indian guy who didn’t wear any so I asked him : “Hey, why didn’t they ask you to wear your life vest?”
And he replied, “They probably want me to drown or something.“
And that kuku James added, “The life vests probably don’t come in your size”. (he was very big sized)
Thank god the indian guy didn’t take offence, he just chuckled.
We explored the boat further and went to the front…
When Jame suddenly had an idea. He went like, “Hey, let’s do an imitation of the titanic pose!”
And immediately I agreed.
Everybody knows the romantic, timeless and famous Titanic pose!!
*hears My Heart Will Go On*
And so we tried to copy that pose.
…..Well, let’s just say it was a poor imitation.
ROFL, a rather obscene poor imitation at that!!!!!!!
I know what you’re thinking, yggoD eh?
So we decided that we suck at timeless romantic poses, we decided to stick to our cartoon personas instead.
There, alot better. Not a famous pose, but still romantic to me!
James: SAY YOU LOVE ME, or I’LL JUMP!!!
Jessica: OKOK I LOVE YOU!!!!!
James: Hehe… Ok then.
And then our speedboat Captain was ready to set sail~~~
VROOM VROOM, the engine started and before I knew it, gusts of wind started slapping my face and my sweat literally turned cold!
It was marrrrrrrrrrrrvellous.
I was about to melt that day, so to be suddenly overcome by cool wind is a wonderful feeling.
First it was goodbye Singapore, and then it was goodbye Mersing!
As we raced across the ocean, I felt that I was not only leaving Mersing, I was also leaving all my troubles, concerns and worries behind.
I knew that the next 3 day would be absolutely wonderful.
I wouldn’t have to worry about a single damn thing, because I was exactly where I wanted to be : A romantic getaway with my baby James.
He’ll take care of me, I knew I was in the best hands that could ever hold me!
Someone seems to be enjoying himself just as much as meee! Look how hard the wind blows his hair, heh
It was extremely surreal, have you ever had the kind of feeling where you knew that nothing could go wrong?
The kind of feeling that assures you life is good and theres plenty of good things for you to discover.
We were leaving the rest of the world behind of us, nobody else mattered except for each other…. Only love could ignite a feeling so strong.
So lighthearted I felt, I felt the wind blowing my worries away.
Speeding across the ocean, hearing the deafening waves, wind and engine, holding James’ hand tightly, watching island after island whizzing by…
It was all too good to be true.
..What a way to start our celebration for our 2 year anniversary.
I never knew a speedboat could go so fast, i felt as though it was going at about 100 km / hour?
After about 20 minutes of racing on the waves, I spotted a HUGE island in front of us!
An island known as Pulau Besar.
As our boat went nearer to the island, we could hardly contain our excitement..
I looked down at the water, and I couldn’t help but notice the large difference between the mursky disgustingly green and dirty water in Mersing (much like what we have in Singapore)
and the crystal clear water at Pulau Besar.
As we got off, I felt dizzy with happiness.
Then, from looking downwards, I looked up at the fascinating island and the view immediately took my breath away.
I looked at James with my brightest smile and he returned a cheeky grin. In his twinkling eyes, I could see he felt the same way I did.
Right then, right there,
…I knew that this was THE beautiful place me and James were dreaming of.
This would be our paradise for the next few days.
Hello, you beautiful island!
