Redang Day 2: I miss the hammock

Meri told me that the sun will be up about 6.45am but I woke up at 6am just to make sure I catch it on time. Too bad the clouds were all over the sky.

I decided not to go back to the room, but slept in the hammock instead. I felt so relaxed with the morning breeze, the sound of waves crushing down to the sand, some birds chirping. As the sun begun to shine through the clouds, I felt the light and the morning heat. ... so nice la.

Anyway, I had to be dragged out for breakfast because I refused to get my butt off the hammock. Had a very nice, warm and fragrant nasi lemak for breakfast.

And shared a little bit of butter honey jam toast.

Had a short break and we are off on the boat to Marine Park. RM5 fee. All was worth it. Meri, Eddie and Ali our resort divers brought us around the snorkeling area. The waves were more fierce and the under current strong that day. Saw a huge fat groper (bass groper I think.. not sure which kind), tons of sea cucumber, this black and white fish (like fish in tux... don't know the name), parrot fish and so many other fishes. (I bet they are all sweet and delicious! HAHAHA) Meri took me a little bit out of the snorkel area and round the ship wreck. Yup... ship wreck. There were much more fishes and corals there.

And there in Marine Park, I found the Christmas Tree worms. I remembered Nigel said something about this? So pretty and cute! And the nice!!! Once you touch it...POP! it hides itself. So cute so cute! I saw this other thing... not too sure if it was a coral or a sea crawler. It's like a huge caterpillar with frills. Ultra marine in color. Looks so handsome when the light shines on it.

But... didn't get to see the Morey eel. No turtles except of the baby turtles kept captive in the Marine park building. No sharks. BooHoo :~(

Back to the resort for lunch. The kampung malay style lauk-pauk servings. Rested then off we go to Teluk Paku.

The snorkeling session in Teluk Paku was a short trip. Meri told me they have to cut it short because he felt the under current pulling many of us out. *sign*

Luckly the really fresh donuts were waiting for us when we return to the resort. No need for Dunkins or Big Apple because Kampung Style is just as nice.

We had fresh cucur taugeh too.

This is really good especially when we were given home made chili sauce to dip in.

Even the squirrel knows it's stuff and pop by for food.

We have not gotten enough of snorkeling yet so we asked Meri to take us out to the sea again. He was so nice to take us out during his break. 1 to 4... (some more 1 of us cannot swim) not an easy task. I was drained and disappointed when I got back because there were no sharks at shark point.

The sky was still bright so I decided to drag the rest for kayaking. But... luck was just not on our side. It was past the rental time and the owners don't encourage us to kayak. We ended up on the beach building a sand castle.

Dinner was rice again. I didn't really dig in because I was kind of filled with all the eating. Not a rice person too.

A few rounds of Chor Dai Di again, hung around with new people I met there, almost went for a night snorkel. But my first snorkeling trip.. better not la. Played more cards and dose off.
