We are safely back since 2 days ago ! Alhamdulillah , we headed to Krabi last week Thursday to soak in the sea and sand. It was in celebration to our 3rd Wedding Anniversary . And i totally fell in love Krabi ,why didn’t I went there sooner. I totally prefer it than Phuket. There is something about Krabi that makes it beautiful, life there wasn’t so hectic. The people there are so friendly and warm.But of course,despite it being out our anniversary celebration, we brought Mia along.
We had endless of fun,the iteniarary were all just nice. Our programmes are all just nice. We started the trip with exploring our hotel area and because we stay right smack in between Ao Nang, we had the privilege to explore it by foot and by our trusted scooter. It was Mia’s first experience on the scooter . She will fidget in between and then before you know she doze off , so she spend most time on it sleeping.
I still remember when we had our babymoon in phuket,mia was still a very tiny bub baking in me.I was so scared to take the bike,the husb was so annoyed at me.We only manage to ride the bike to the nearest shopping centre near to our hotel, so it was movie every single day over day including watching ANGRY BIRD . I kept saying no to everything because of the distance we have to travel. How can i not be paranoid,from the 2nd months onwards preggy with mia,i had brown stains on my undies every now and then. It wasn’t spotting though so i had the tendency to overthink. And because it was my first pregnancy i was not going to risk it.
So back to Krabi, i would totally recommend you our hotel.(GLOW AO NANG.) I had nothing to complain about the hotel. Even though we were given the second floor , we had the pool view and everything about it was such a pleasant stay.We didn’t opt for breakfast this time because we felt that we don’t want to rush into it.So wake up, get ready , breakfast for mia and head out.
Will totally recommend this restaurant over there too, BANGBOO Seafood Restaurant . (IKAN STEAM LIMAU) , I MISS YOU ! This restaurant is so near the mosque. I would have patron this restaurant everyday if not for the varieties of food around the area. There’s this shop just outside the mosque that see this awesome PHAD THAI and plenty of girlled chicken and beef meat.I think the husb was one happy traveller,he had pad thai almost every day and his fav chicken parts.He even ate fried chicken feet there.Must be too good that i didn’t see him offering me one.Or maybe he knows i will just give him the disgust look.
Island hopping was so awesome ! If you are travelling with kids, i would recommend you to take the speedboat.Mia was such a darling on it, like real only.Girl have no fear or motion sickness leh,so steady.A total of 4 islands that we explored over there.I got sick the day we landed in Krabi, i had bad flu and sore throat .So on the second day of the trip,the day we went island hopping it got worse.I had slight diarrohea,i wasn’t feeling good enough. All i wanted was to lie down . We did okay on the first island,i manage to find the toilet to do my big business cause it was so urgent. The second island, i felt like my head getting heavy. SO while mia play with the sand,i lie down on the sand.It was good .
And when it was time to go back to the boat , i vomited everything out. Since i didnt eat yet,i vomited out the coconut drink that i had. And all of a sudden everything was a lot more better,its like i vomited a very bad toxin out.Got to thank the coconut drink, so the last 2 island i had more energy.And because the timing was good , we feed mia her milk and she sleep in the boat while we go snorkelling . I was awesomeeeeeeeeeee ! Many sweet memories to that trip,mia with her size of life jacket. We are so proud of you mia. I recommend you to book from KLOOK 4 island hopping because it includes hotel pick up and transfer and save you all the hassle from going one vendor to another just to get the right price.For adult it only $40 for speedboat with halal buffet lunch provided.
Visited the elephant sanctuary the next was it was my fav activity there.It was both scary and exciting for mia. I always make it a point to the husb that we won’t be going place that exploit animals. I would never dream of riding the elephant or petting the tigers.These sanctuary are for retired elephants who in the early days spend their time being exploited for riding.They were between 52 to 70 elephant years and they are so gentle creatures.Most of them are females because according to their caretaker,females are not so aggresive. 1 of them is blind due to cataract and it was such a warm feeling how they know how to search for food using the other senses.1 can only see using her right eye due to cataract. The programme consists of feeding the elephants,walking along side them in the forest , playing with them in the mud and bathing with them in the river.We didn’t join the mud and water activities because the husb didn’t quite approve of the idea due to hygiene. But we enjoy it so much , being able to mix around with our group of travellers too .One was from Norway and one was from Chile.
I miss you Nutella Banana Pancake ! COunting days till i try you again
THANK YOU Krabi for being kind to us #TheAdams ! We hope to visit your Krabi Night Market again too. 2 nights wasn’t enough to let us try everything. From the crispy takoyaki there to the mouth watering honey pineapple there to all the Mango Sticky Rice , your awesome sugar palm honey cakes .
You would not find much things to shop over to Krabi and it’s good. You will not be accounted for not buying souvenirs for others because practically there is not much you can buy for yourself or others except for small and simple stuff like key chains . Krabi is more for relaxation , to forget about the hustle and bustle of life in Singapore.
And when the trip is relaxed and well planned , you find it all worth it. So from our tiring Europe trip to a relaxing Thailand trip. We thank Allah for the rezeki and strength he gave us.
But its only been 2 days since we are back to work and guess who asked this ques,
“Okay b , let’s plan for our next staycation” . My husband everybody)( hahahaha)
I take it as a good sign because anything to see the husb face , ever since he started this shift work routine , i miss him more.
Happy 3rd year Anni my love ! May Allah protect us and bless us in all ways . Thank you for being the great husband and father that you already are .
May Allah bless us with a second one when the times comes. I’m sorry i didn’t grant it any sooner but i want to have the time to have you two more by my side before i start whinning of back pain or shortness of breath or weird cravings.
