Pulau Perhentian! woohoo!

my friends and i agreed that
"whatever happened in Perhentian, stays in Perhentian"

assalamualaikum!
my friends and i went to perhentian island over a weekend. can you believe it.. we actually drove the whole way, to and fro!! we didn't expect the drive to take us about THE WHOLE DAY!
sebab jam, sempat sesat, and multiple bladders yang cannot synchronise. sikit sikit, stop. hahaha!
girls.. motip sangat!

i was the first driver of one of the cars, and i drove for solid 8 hours. memang terasa gangsta gila tau. haha! nasib i had really good company! my girls kept me awake and we just had fun talking and laughing in the car =) and they took turns sleeping too. sorang dah habis drool, sorang lagi sambung. so ada drooling beregu la. teamwork FTW!

and that's why peeps, it's really really important to have good company to go with you on a holiday! #tips
ihik!

a picture is worth a thousand words right?
so i'll just let them speak for themselves, with a lil' help of my caption opkos! haha!



sesi lepak tepi jalan otw to jeti besut. 12 girls hovering around, 1 guy to fix the tyre. very nice =B

#tips
1. check your tyres and get your car serviced before going on a long trip 
2. have dependable guy friends in case...in case of any car emergencies. thanks Ikram!


sesi pertukaran drebar while orang belakang tidoq bedengkoq

#tips
1. have friends yang boleh take over the wheel when you're tired of driving
2. pakai shades supaya nampak macho macam inot.

so let's skip the whole bumpy boat ride (yang best gila to me) from jeti to the pulau and straight on to THIS!



Pulau Perhentian uolls!!
subhanallah!


pakai flats ke pantai. cool ke tak cool? buahahaha!

#tips
1. bring waterproof bags to put your expensive gadgets. once jatuh dalam air, considered padan muka. 
2. don't bring big bags. susah mau carry dalam sand. terbenam dalam sand juga ada, maka bermuscle la anda nanti. eh, macam bagus lak kan... ok, bring big bags to have more clothes (in case) while building up muscles. myahahahaha! =p


sesi diri dengan gaya, mutu, keunggulan sambil usha mat salleh panggang


sesi meninggalkan tapak kaki di tepi pantai dengan cute-nya

sesi bergumbira tengok live band di tepi pantai pada waktu malam =D


sesi muka tak sabar nak pi snorkeling

anyone up for a fishy spa? hehe!
cantik kan the water? it's so clear and just amazing!


sesi men-Darth Vader-kan diri nak masuk air cantik

btw, WE SAW A HUGE AWESOME TURTLE YOU KNOZZZ!? 
CANTIK AND BESAR OKENG!
but tak sempat nak amik gambar coz we were too mesmerised and the turtle swam fast. tak sempat kejar tauuu!! ='(
takpe, alhamdulillah ada rezeki gak to see it live. heee! =D


sesi buat muka kesian puss in boots sambil makan beramai ramai di tepi pantai selepas habis puas bersnorkeling selama 7jam. muka dah tanned.. ada rupa jessica alba tak? ahakkkkk!


sesi menyelamatkan m&m shake yang Nad sengaja tumpahkan. hahaha! opkos, saya pun tolong lepas tangkap gambo ni. muahahahaa =p

#tips
1. 5second rule is always applicable if the table is clean
2. kerjasama is IMPORTANT


sesi syok sendiri sebab the night before tak layak masuk gambar. malam ni, WIN.
oh here i was wearing ThePoplook blue slinky dress and yellow cardi from Uniqlo! 
malam malam macam breezy so best pakai dress =B



sesi nak promote the perhentian snorkeling services.
ha uolls yang nak pi perhentian ni, tengok la baik baik ya!


sesi pertukaran dress maxi. haha!
this is Fara, Adreen and moi.
Fara will be married a week earlier than me u knoz!!
and yeah, i changed into my ThePoplook angle back maxi sebab best. hahahaha! =p over gila, i know!


sesi tengok sunrise.
subhanallah, cantik gila the view =')
tenang hati iolls tau tengok the view in the morning!


=')


sesi maria elena is jubah hitam =p
i always wanted to know what it feels like to wear jubah while strolling at the beach. it didn't feel any different than wearing a dress, to be honest. tapi saje jeeeeeeee.
nak bajet ayu you knoz! hahaha!!


one last look at the beautiful pantai... before...
balik....
ke.....



reality.
WUUUUUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! *lari lari sambil nangis with lagu hingustan kat background*


by the way, we stayed at a chalet, which i won't say here sebab nanti uolls will marah i. lebih baik uolls cari sendiri and puas hati sendiri. coz ours, it was quite last minute, see. so...... yeah. what can you expect from a last minute arrangement? right. =)
but that's how we roll! hahaha!
we had awesome fun though! alhamdulillah we got to see loads of beautiful creatures and amazing views, and alhamdulillah we arrived home safely. =)

actually, this was the first time i went to the beach as a hijaber. since 2010!
gangsta gila. 
so it was kind of a struggle for me. to find the right clothes, the right shawls, etc.
the struggle to keep the shawl on when swimming, the struggle to make the clothes not fit to the body the minute i got out of the water, and at one point, i actually had the urge to take off my shawl! coz it was too much of a hassle sampai i rasa nak give up. tapi it was momentous, alhamdulillah! biasalah perempuan. bila emo tu, iman pun boleh goyah. pfft! geram with myself.
at least from this experience, i think i know how to prepare for a beach vacation. maybe should make separate post for that kalau ada orang nak. ahak!

i wish we could stay longer in perhentian.. the place is BEAUTIFUUUUULLLLLL!!!
alas, work called, reality called, mom called, everything called from the besut jeti. kita pun kena la menjawab call mereka dan terus pulang ke pangkalan damansara..

i will see you again, perhentian!
coz the BESTEST, BEST EVAH, BEST THING WE SAW AT PERHENTIAN WAS...


THOR!!!!!
the demi-god!!!
in swimming trunks!!!!

who wouldn't wanna go there again after seeing Thor. i mean, seriously. 
=p

till my next beach vacay!
woooooooooooooooot!

♥ dak pink said...

Berenang pakai tudung/shawl rasa macam tak best je mula-mula. Rasa tudung melekat-lekat, geli-geli kena kat telinga, lepas tu rasa tak selesa sebab ada benda basah kat atas kepala.

Tapi tu semua mula-mula ja, lama-lama nanti biasalah. Kan?

=)

Natasha said...

waaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...
bestynyer!!!
(:

wnshzznie said...

THOR seriously -.- awesome

syitah said...

hmm..tak susah sebenarnye bermandi manda dan menjaga aurat...

lebih-lebih lagi skrng dah ada swimsuit utk muslimah.
choose the right colour because gaudy/bright print
will attract too much attention
and the right size so that it won't cling when we are out of water..
insyaAllah terjaga la aurat :)

klu tak selesa dgn hood/swim cap tu,
leh la pakai tudung ekspress mcm idea syaza :)

all the best maria!

Lidiya Iwana said...

Nice photos lah Kak Maria!

ayut said...

wah!!!..i lioke ok...see ur adventure personility.main redah!hihihi..btul..percutian kat pantai lagi2 time mandi pantai.pikir bkali2 nak mandi ke tak..tdg nk tcabutla.baju melekatla..huhuhu..

Hafizah Abd Wahab said...

i went pulau perhentian on march.best giler lahh.snorkelling kat air jernih masyaAllah!

tips for hijabers,kalau gg to beach,avoid shawls pasal
#1 leceh,berbelit2(safety wise,takot tercekik bile tgh snorkel)
#2 nak kene pin banyak2(pon safety wise,takot nanti pin hilang dah nampak aurat).
i selalu kalau nak swim pakai tudung bawal biase or tudung bibik yg sarung je tu(no pin needed).
baju swimming mmg paling susah pasal takut melekat kat badan.use baju corak2 instead of plain black :)baju lepaskan paras peha paling bagus.
seluar pakai yg aladin type yg besar2 or track pants yg senang kering.

hope it helps :)

im gg PD this week.nak main water sports lagiii

Ainee Cumi said...

Samalah kita Kak Maghia. Ada sampai satu time tu waktu Aini pergi Phuket rasa macam arghh rimasnya tudung ni lepas tu bila masuk air habis nampak leher tengkuk apa semua terkeluar. Dia terapung. Lepas tu terus buka. Then at the second time pergi Redang hari tu dah prepare dengan muslimah swimsuit. Sangat selesa. Sangat membantu. Pinjam adik punya swimsuit saiz XXXL walaupun Aini size M je.

cikpinky said...

The ergo baby carrier has become so popular because it allows you to bond with your baby, carry your baby in different positions, and supports your back, legs and shoulders with its ergonomic design. When I had ergobaby my second baby and went looking for the highly-recommended Ergo, I could only find it locally at a baby boutique. Not only was it more expensive there, they had very little selection available. For this reason, I have found it easier (especially with little babies) to shop ergobaby canada online at reputable retailers that offer free shipping and good return policies.
