Year 2013 has been treating me so well. =)
I've set my own 2013 resolutions earlier of the year & i'm so close to achieve some of them. It took me some time to made my 1st move and now, i wish i'm capable enough to get what i'm demanding for. I've always told myself that i need courage & faith to move myself one step forward because i'm all grown up and i need to be more independent. 

Don't get me wrong, this is not an emo post. Just some words running though my minds so i wanted to write it down here. Hehe! :) I'm still goyang kaki with my assignments, quiz & midterm tests because it's only the 3rd week of new semester, and couldn't believe that i've only 5 more weeks to finish my course.

It makes me feel sad every time whenever i think of finishing my university's life soon. I've not get enough of it, i don't seems to enjoy a lot etc etc. But there're also happy things happened on me lately which i'm very very very looking forward. It was a very last minute work and i'm lucky enough to be selected. Looking forward to June for my backpacking trip alone :)

Till then.
Last Krabi post will be updated soon, hope u're not bored reading my blog.
Happy Thursday Night.

Krabi Day 2: Sea Canoe/Kayak & Elephant Trekking

 Wondering what to do in Krabi for 4D3N? 
Let me show you what places i went in Day 2. Just keep reading alright :)

Beautiful morning view from our hotel :) 

Had our breakfast in hotel before the agent came to pick us up for sea canoe (kayak) + elephant trekking at 830am.

The usual price for this trip is 1100baht per person (i compared the price online) which includes:

- Both way hotel transfer
- Thai set lunch & refreshment
- Canoe through mangroves, caves & Hong island
- 45mins to 1 hour elephant trekking
- Baby elephant show
- Jungle walk to Tonpariwat waterfall
- Free mineral water

Was quite sad because it rained when we arrived at the kayak training place. And the awkward thing we encountered was, there were so many caucasians at that place. I only spotted 2 asian gangs there, which includes me & boyfie ourselves. Soooo many ang-mo(s)! Spotted a few good looking white man with good body figure. Boyfie looks so small standing beside them. *facepalm*

Let's get the journey started! =)

Kayaking in the middle of the sea. 

Entering mangrove's area

We're in the middle of the mangrove swamp.

"No crocodile, no worry!" Told by the abang, haha.

Not to forget, you'll be "lucky" enough to see monkey in d middle of the mangrove swamp. The abang told us not to scream & smile to the monkey. Know what, the monkeys jumped on someone's boat & grabbed away their sunblock. Immediately after this, whenever they said "monkey! monkey!", i will just kept my boat a distance away from the monkey. Nothing special about the monkey also la.

 Breathtaking place! Trust me, when you were there, you just can't stop wow-ing.

Amazing view. 

We canoed from the kayak centre->sea->mangrove swamp->back to the sea again! Stopped by this place for a short break.

The place was only that small, as seen in the photo below. Abang said we can swim over this place but not too far but none of us do so we're really tireeeed. 

Had our thai lunch at this place after the sea canoe activity for the entire morning.
The lunch was just normal. The tomyum wasn't sour/spicy enough but the angmos like it very much.

Went for elephant trekking after lunch! Honest speaking, i felt so bad right after i ride on the elephant. I saw a post in facebook before saying we shall not support this kind of elephant trekking activities cuz we're directly threatening the elephants. I still feel so bad now :( I'll never do this again in my life.

The elephant with ivory is the male one they said.

This is a female elephant without its ivory.

Time to reward them with their favourite bananas (50baht for secucuk pisang).

They've big mouth! i asked the abang should i peel off the banana before feeding, he said no need. Alright, this is not a commonsense i think, so i did not asked a stupid question. Haha!

I was very scareeeeeeeed actually! 

She's looking for more banana so she tried putting her nose on my arm or something. 
i ran away immediately because i'm so scared!

Baby elephant show after that. 

The baby elephant seems to like my boy a lot because he kept going near to him. Another prove of me running away instead of sitting there. 


Okay, nothing special for me la but the angmos were all so excited seeing monkey. I understand that :)

Last scheduled activity of the day-Waterfall

Jungle trek for 10-15 minutes in order to reach that place.

I wish to stay longer at the waterfall but time just doesn't allowed us. It feels amazing when the water hits our body with the speeding force. The feeling is just great :)

Ending my post here. I know that's a lot of picture here but i just wanna share my happy time with those who's reading now. Till then :)

Krabi Town Night Market

Krabi night market is situated 30 minutes away from Ao Nang Beach. It's only open every friday-sunday, so remember to pay a visit when you're there during weekend :)

I've done my research before i went to Krabi so in order to go Krabi Town from Ao Nang, you can either take tut-tut/taxi/bus (60baht per way). I've seen many other tut-tut offering 300baht (per person) for both way etc & when i was about to take that, i saw taxi. =D Wheee, so lucky. 

When you see this "signature" traffic light, you're pretty much at the right place.

Let me introduce what to eat in night market!

#1 Pancake (30baht-65baht)
You can find it everywhere in Ao Nang, even in pasar malam. I had 5 pancakes in just 3 days. It's basically roti canai empat segi but it tastes good especially with nutella. Slurpp! (a must eat when you're in Krabi).

Chocolate banana pancake

#2 Sausage bread(10 baht)
These balloon looking food is actually some kind of sausage bread. So cute right? 

#3 Seafood
Mussels for 100baht

Squid with eggs (25baht-40baht)-differ from size

Prawn tempura (30baht)

Dried Squid (鱿鱼干) -30 baht

Grilled fish (130baht-250baht) 

Blood calm (50baht)
Spiral shells (80 baht)

#4 Pork (10baht)

Pork sausages (10-30baht)

Basically all foods that made of pork were nice there! i miss bacon already, so goood! >,<

#5 Jelly?
i didn't buy any of them but it looks cute aren't they?

#6 Fried Ice-Cream (30-75 baht)

You can choose any flavor & toppings yourself and whether you want them to make it into milk or yogurt. I personally like yogurt so i took that order.

#7 Barbeque giant sweet corn

#8 Fish pancake (10-20baht)

#9 Quail Eggs (鹌鹑蛋)

There were more foods to eat like papaya salad, coconut ice-cream, pad thai, rice noodle, Khao Mok Gai, (Thai Yellow Rice with Chicken) etc etc. I wish i can try all out in a night but we just can't. TOO FULL ALREADY after eating a little bit of these & that.

Most of them bought their food, sit down, took a beer & enjoyed the night with the show/performance on stage. Chilling isn't it? 

Painting! (20baht)


Couple chain!

Salute to the handicapp people who did everything by himeself.

Portrait drawing! (80baht per person) 
We've got 1 for ourselves, very cuteeeeee drawing.

Shoeeeeees! Didn't manage to get one for myself, boyfie said not nice :(

Haha, time to go bed already.
wish to update more often but i'm lazy.
sorry for bombarding this post with photos, hope you enjoy reading it.
Night =)
