Krabi Day 2 - Elephant Ride & Nutella Banana Pancake

Oh my... Please bear with me as I still have a few entries for Krabi.. Haha! No point of stopping me now. I on a roll baby! :) Last entry was about  me and Mr. Bob having a fantastic time kayaking down Bor Thor.. Well, after we did our 2 hours of Kayak *yes, it was hours*.. we had our Muslim package lunch at the port.. Man, I was so surprised at the amount of food that was ready for us! They served us like 6 dishes (excluding rice) and it was loads! *no complains here*

At first, I was quite cautious about drinking the water but it seems they poured it from a mineral bottle. So, I guess it was ok. We had Tom Yum Kung (prawn), bean sprout, fried prawns, chicken with cashew nuts, chicken  with mix veges and fruits platter for dessert. Talk about being full. :)

Look at the prawns in my Tom Yum!!! 

There were no complain from Mr. Bob either...

After all that food, I make a dash to the toilet and I thought.. hey these decor seems familiar
(they are the drawings inside the cave, remember?)

Ok, our driver is waiting for us and we hopped on the van.
The drive was no longer than 15 minutes and we are at the Elephant Safari.
At this point of time, I wasn't sure that I truly wanted to be on an Elephant.
But Mr. Bob pushed me on one and I had to put on a brave face *damn it*
So, before we had to be on one, the tour guide asked us to pay some tip to the Mahoot around 40bht but in the end Mr. Bob just gave the man 100bht = RM10 to treat the 'well behaved elephant'

It was a half and hour track around the estate.. which I thought "hey.. I survived! *thank GOD*"
we went up the hill and down the hill.. through thick bushes and I swear that I will never do this ever again.. because I am not CRAZY enough to do it twice.. :)

Finally it was all over, and I happily hopped off our ride.. and urged Mr. Bob to give a tip..
Some bananas perhaps..
I scouted around the area and found 2 beautiful birds in a cage..
The owner came near me at literally gave both of them to me..
Gosh.. they are super cute.. 

Mr. Bob came over.. then I took a couple of pictures of him with the birds..

Then, the owner ask one of the elephant trainers to bring out a baby elephant..
Super adorable.. too adorable in fact!

I've got to hug her and pat her.. and love her for only a moment..
Wondering where's the mummy.. :(

Play dead.. "Papa.. how could you???"
Relax.. 3 secs for a photo.. but seriously.. I couldn't do it..

After our photo session.. we went straight back to our hotel.. and showered..
I smelled like an elephant.. Haha!

Then, came our most awaited agenda... exploring the Krabi city..
and trying out a must Krabi try
Banana Nutella Pancake.. hot and delicious..
the queue was long but we were so eager to try out.. :)

Happy husband... :)
Happy tummy.. Haha!

Until next entry... Krabi nite life..

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*
