Krabi Day 2 - Kayaking at Bor Thor Aonang

This was not my first choice of activity. I had booked a private tour for island hoping but alas because of the change date, it was fully booked. :(

I refused to let go of my deposit, so in the end we had to choose kayaking at Bor Thor. Sounds boring right? Not so fast, it was magnificent experience for us!

We woke up to this beautiful view of the cliff..

Jacuzzi anyone? :)

Well, the first night went well. *ehem*
So, today we are quite excited to experience Krabi.. *whoop whoop*
We woke up quite early around 6.30am local time, got ready and went straight for breakfast.
Our driver will be waiting at the lobby of the hotel by 8.30am.

Well, this is a none halal hotel.
But you could of course, pick and choose what you would want to eat for breakfast.
The egg station has no meat, so I think it is quite safe to have something made there.
So, I had some french toast, muffin, omelette, fried mushrooms and fruits.
Quite fulfilling though. 

We finished our breakfast around 8am and decided to walk around the hotel area..
It is so convenient, you have Starbucks, Mc Donald's, 7 Eleven, Gym, Cafe all in front of the hotel..

So, our drive began.
I had also insisted for a private tour which means private transportation.
We had a tour guide, a driver and a whole van all to ourselves. *freak* hahaha!
How much does this all cost. I don't actually recall. I think for 4500bht the whole day? Or something like that. This would include elephant ride, kayaking, tour guide, lunch and transportation. 
Nice right?

The view was super nice.
Something I really look forward of doing again in Krabi.
But it all depends on the person. If you like adventure / nature most probably you will love this activity.

We've got to see Monkeys, monitor lizards, colorful mini crabs, and those walk on land fish.. hahaha!
Imagine kayaking through the mangroves with a well spoken english guide and just the two of us..
Worth going.. Definitely..

This piece of rock does look like a mermaid right..
So eerie looking, almost look alive..

See the small red crabs on the mud..
Well, there are many more.. blue ones, orange.. I personally thought that it looks like candy. :)

Then, the guide took us to another cave where we had to climb down the kayak.
This cave is quite special as it has some drawings of ancient cavemen.
It is called the Big Headed Ghost Cave.
*I hope there is no extra special 'being' here*

This drawing looks like a man with a feathery hat.. *nice fashion sense* 
Even from those days.. :p

A two headed dragon? Can you see them?

The cave was so serene and beautiful.
Look at the amazing sculptures behind me.
It was massive!

The guide also told us not to touch any of the rocks for fear that it will stop growing.
The proper growth is when the rocks are able to join together for the top and the bottom.

  Alright guys.. that's the end of our kayaking and cave adventures.. 
Wait for my continuation almost death experience riding an elephant *no I do not exaggerate this*

Krabi Day 1 - Romantic Candle Light Dinner (Cliff Sala)

I had secretly planned a romantic dinner for me and Mr. Bob. I've emailed the hotel, and they had graciously done the needful arrangement (send menu, quote price, etc.). I told them not to reveal the dinner during check in as I am afraid that Mr. Bob could overhear the conversation.

I even spend some time thinking of what to dress that nite. Trying my best to make it really special for us. :) I took the rose from our bedroom and place on my hijab to please the staffs there and show them that I really appreciate their efforts! Of course, I was slightly overdressed! All the mat salleh wore only T-shirt and shorts. Here I am wearing a glamorous Jubah. Haha!

The nite lights from outside of our 3rd floor room.

I was closed to tears as we were lead to our table.
The restaurant called The Cliff Sala.
It was so beautiful, the staffs really overdone themselves! They had secluded us at a corner (the only ones there).
We were led up by candles and the lighting were dimmed and we were surrounded by soft lit candles!

Live band was singing.
Romantic mood was really on the high!
We were introduce to our server of the night Mr. Amar.
Yup, our names were on a young banana leaf. 

First up our appetizer.
Yummey. Prawns prawns and prawns!

This would be the thai coconut seafood soup.
Aww.. this one is somewhat similar of a tom yum but has that coconut milk in it.

Our main course, grilled seafood.
My word, seriously I could express how good everything tasted.
It was well seasoned and fresh!

And finally, our dessert.
Fruits with Jelly.

While we were finishing up our nice dinner with hot tea, suddenly, one of the waitresses presented us with her specialty drink.
Ahaaa!! No... it is not alcoholic.. It's actually soda syrup with cherry.
It was on the house, and I was touched once again on how nice the staff was.
They wish us happiness and a long wonderful relationship!

Nite2 everyone!! 
Until day 2....*wink*
