05.30AM- Woke up
05.45AM- Gathered down stairs. Only Ayu, Ahtuck, Crab, Mr X (forgot his name), and myself. Ija, Azura and Kemal did not joined. Crab suggested us to walk by the beach, which was full of huge rocks. That way was quicker than trekking thru the jungle (45mins to watching spot). We were fine with the idea. Mr X led. Ayu and I wore slippers. So it was kind of difficult to climb. Slippery rocks at the bottom, the higher ones were well… high (had to be spiderman). Plus it was dark! But we managed. Initially I wore a sweater over my tank top, thinking that it was early morning and should be very cold. Dang i was wrong… we were not even half way, and I was already sweating like crazy, kalah pergi BodyJam for 1 hour.
06.30-ish- Reached the sunrise watching spot. It faces Pulau Redang. Ahtuck set up his camera. I didnt bring mine. Ahtuck took pictures. We chat, enjoy the view, and modeled for Ahtuck’s pics =p

07.30AM Walked back to resort thru the jungle. Walking back was kind of easy as the skies were clear. Crab went back to the resort earlier than us to prepare breakfast for resort guest. Once we reached D’coconut, we woke up the rest.
0800++ Had breakfast. Don offered to guide us to snorkel later. Got back to room. Packed our stuff and transferred them to Ija’s room. We were not able to extend room stay for all rooms, except for Ija’s.
09.30AM Crab joined the snorkeling. Don is the diving instructor there. I think that was the best snorkeling trip within the 3 days!
10.30++ Got back to resort.
11.00AM Hang out at dive centre
11.30AM Took more pictures but the jetty
12.00PM Azura and I went back to Ija’s room to clean up. Ija, Ahtuck, Ayu and Kemal went for a dip at the swimming pool.
01.00PM Checked out. Took farewell pictures at dive centre. Said goodbye to everyone. Exchange phone numbers.
01.15PM Get into our boat to Merang
02.00PM Reached Merang. Headed to Kuala Terengganu on Ija’s new car. Had lunch. Went to Pasar Payang. Didn’t buy anything. I was very tired and sleepy. Imagine you woke up at 5.30AM, then rock climbing (as if… hehe) for 20-30mins in the dark… with scratches here and there, then jungle trekking, then went to snorkel under the hot sun, and photo shoot under the hot sun. All within 6 hours. I don’t know where did I get all the energy. I bet it was adrenaline. Island adrenaline. Hehe.
05.00PM Went to a photo shop and made CD copies of photos by Ahtuck. I just sat at a corner of the photo shop as I felt dizzy. Hahaha. over gile. Said goodbye to Ija and Ahtuck.
05.30PM We took a cab to the airport. At airport, I freshened up + put on my sweater, and just relax.
07.00PM Flight check-in
