This is my first overseas trip with my friends.. haha
sounds too near to be classified as overseas.. but anywhere which requires passport will have to be considered as overseas isn't it? :P
Before the trip, I hesitated as I forsee
there will be nothing for me to do over there... I dunno how to swim... therefore, I was determined to give watersports
a miss. Fortunately, I did not "Fly kite" and woke up damn early on 16/01/2010 to catch the ferry at Tanah Merah
Ferry Terminal. Thoughtful Kyann
prepared yummy Egg Mayo sandwich for our breakfast and a packet of milo
We reached our resort without much hassle.. and we are glad that the friendly service crew there allowed us to have an early check in.
We simply love the resort ... its beautiful =D
View from our room The water sports house... where the adventure starts~~ The gals looked forward to Snorkeling , but the wave was too strong and sea condition was not suitable for the activity that morning... Despite feeling disappointed, they decided to go for banana boat... I was struggling whether to join them... but I did not want to spoil their fun.. therefore, I agreed to go ahead with that... The moment I wore the life jacket and felt the wave on my feet.... I really really regretted....
The wave was quite strong that day. I reluctantly climbed up to the banana boat and for dunno what stupid reason... I was seated infront... I only remembered myself shouting "WHY AM INFRONT? WHY AM I INFRONT????!!!" The gals requested the crew to be infront with me .. but it was too late...
Telle: Jo! Move infront! Move Move!
Me: -_-lll (%#&#%#*(%*%#$&&)
The "journey" was disgustingly horrifying... I literally screamed all the way using my head voice... I think the sea got so annoyed by me that it decided to capsize my boat and all of us fell into the sea for the first time.... There was an immediate silence after that....
I sank quite a bit before I started floating up... the feeling was horrendous... I was terrified and opened my eyes in the sea... I saw the stupid capsized banana and some pairs struggling legs.... HAHAHAHA That was when I finally realised.. Shit! I am in the middle of the sea! There's no land under my feet!!!! #$^&$#&$%&#$$%#$#^$% I lost my right contact lens into the deep blue sea.. hope no marine species will get indigestion because of that... Opps!
I tried so hard to calm down.. and I was so glad when I finally float out from the water... The wave brought me so far away from my sisters... I heard them shouting to me .. "Jo! you ok?" " Give me your hand! give me your hand!" "Save her first! save her first! She is very scared!" LOL
Finally, I got hold of the speed boat.. and refused to let go my hand... I told the guy I dun want to go back to that stupid banana anymore and he was like "-_-lll"... He tried so hard to pull me up to the boat... but I simply have no strength to push myself up... I seriously think my weight plays a part for that .... hmmmmm... I clinched on to the boat for quite awhile.. feeling so helpless... he finally gave up and told his colleague who was on the banana boat to save me... The moment I heard the word "Banana" I shouted back at him "I don't wanna go back! I don't want I don't want!" ... hahaha He calmed me down by explaining to me that I have to go back to the BB first before they can transfer me to the speed boat... True enough.. It was so much easier climbing back to the BB.
After I was transferred to the speed boat... the journey continued... I regretted again... the speed boat was equally terrifying... and I was so worried that I may fly out of the boat... I felt so useless... so timid.... haiz... and ya.. so awkward... cus I was face to face with the crew... looking so super "CHUI"... -_-lll It's not just a scary journey.. it's also a painful journey.. my left knee and my butt suffered nasty bruise after that...
I thought I was scared that's why the whole journey felt so long... later I realised they really did extend the duration... The gals on the BB had to signal the guy to go back .. if not the journey will be even longer.... -_-lll
Although I may sound like I did not enjoy the activity, but I was so glad that I gave it a try... at least I know how it feels to be on and in the sea... hahahaha I get to be on the speed boat too! $8 per person... worth while isn't it? hahahaha
My saviours! Left being the Banana Boat saviour and right being the Speed Boat saviour =D
The friendly and crazy crews of the water sports house~
After the BB, we went back to our room and prepared our self for Nagoya... The crew offered their service to drive us around batam and brought us to have our seafood dinner in the evening.
We had A&W for our tea break.. but to our disappointment.. Curly fries were out of stock... :(
