Redang Trip

After a semester full with homework, reports, class test, and projects, finally it reaches the end. Straight after the exam, we are going to one of the malaysia famous beautiful island, Redang, located at Terengganu. This is my first time there, really cant wait for it. Really need a good rest and enjoy to the max after stressful exam. We start our journey on 10.30pm at Putrajaya bus terminal. I still remember this is the day malaysia got defeated in Thomas Cup, a bit dissapointed but i strongly believe that Malaysia will win the glory back very soon.


We arrived at the port on 6am morning, and waited for the transportation to Redang island until 7.30am. Between that, we walk around Kuala Terengganu and had a light breakfast at the chinese hawker stall. 7.30am, the agent brought us to the port, and our journey start to Redang island.
We arrived and checked in at the Redang Reef resort on 9.30am. Picture taken with Fionna and Edmond once we arrived. Semangat betul.. The activity for the first day was snokerlling on 1.30. First time experience, it was fun and exciting. Looking at many types of maraine species and corals, really impressive. Swimming together with all the fishes and got surrounded, a very special experience.. We returned to the island on 3.30pm, a bit tired but still energetic enough to sampat with others. On 5.30pm, we joined the chankat sotong competition, organise by Tourism Malaysia and others sponsors such as the resorts at Redang Island. We are so lucky to meet this carnival which will be held every year, we have got the right timing.


I struggling hard to catch a soting but failed. The waves are strong and making the boat shaking here and there, really feel dizzy and feel like vomitting. Everyone on the boat manage to catch a sotong, only me and Edmond fail to. We are just to kind to break up the sotong family,haha.

2nd, nothing except snokerlling. We went to the turtle island, and we are so lucky that we saw turtle and 'vegetarian' shark. The next station is Marine Park, wow..so many fishes around especially u feed the fished with bread,you will get surrounded. So colourful and so cute.

A picture with the fish statue. According to Edmond, this looks like Kim Hoe. haha!!

The worst day diving is better than the best day working!


Me, Sue Choo and Edmond at More More tea Inn. Remind me about the movir starred by Sammi Cheng and Richie Ren.

Something amazing! The top picture- i snap this picture in front of the Reef resort. When you rub the sand, you will see some small dots glowing in the dark, the center picture. The bottom picture i have edited it to make it clearer. GUESS WHAT IS IT??
Answer : According to the guide, is actually the eggs of the coral that causes this .
This phenomena can be found in other island as well but the one glowing in blue colour can only be found at Redang island. Unbelieveable?? believe it!

Thanks to Sue Choo for organising this trip. Really enjoy the time here and had lots of fun. Wish to stay at this beautiful island for few days more. i will rate 10 out of 10 for this trip,perfect score! Wish all buddie will have a nice holiday. See u guys during sem 4.
