Day 2 start with me woke up around 7am and took some sun rise photos.
We had our breakfast at around 8am in our villa. The night before, we filled our breakfast card and placed in front of our villa door as they will collect the card during late night 2am. Then they will deliver the breakfast according to the timing we choose in the card. There are English breakfast, Japan breakfast, Chinese breakfast options in the menu selection. We choose 2 full English breakfast (scramble egg, sunny egg, sausage, hashbrown, breads, cereal, milk, coffee/tea, juice). So after woke up in the morning (which we still have not adapt to the time here due to the 3hr difference), I sat on the balcony watching the sun and sea while waiting for the breakfast to be deliver to our room. Then around 8am, the breakfast was delivered to us. We had the breakfast at the balcony, munching on our food while watching the calm sea and beautiful sky.
After the breakfast, we meet with Michael & Janice for the snorkeling trip out to the sea. The meeting point for this trip is at the jetty. As we reached earlier, we hang around there until the registration start. After registered, we are required to take a swim test before the trip as we are the 1st timer in snorkeling here. This is to ensure that those who wish to snorkel could swim. The swim test is to swim from the start point to the other end point at the white float and back to start point again without leg touching the ground of the water. It is a bit difficult at first due to the salty water as I drank quite a lot of the salty water… 😦 Lucky we manage to pass the test in the end. My wife also took the test too in order to go out to the sea with us, but she could not join for the snorkeling as she is pregnant. Thus she stay on board when we went into the sea to snorkel. After we got our snorkelling gear, we were brief on the safety and the hand signal. After the briefing, we board the boat out to the sea. The boat stop at one of the pinnacles and we are guided to jump into the water one after another. Then we swim be-hide the instructor in front of us as we go round the pinnacles. There is another instructor be-hide of us to ensure that we did not go out of course or need any assistant during the trip. There were a lot of guest who join this snorkeling trip around here and I always get hit by those swimmer as though they never look where they are going…. 😦 The whole trip last around 30mins and I saw quite a lot of corral and fishes, but they are some distant from me.
When the instructor blow the long sound of the whistle, we need to swim back to the boat. As I board the boat, I found that a lot of guest had already came back to the boat after jumped into the sea for less than 5mins….
Then this trip ended in a short 30mins and we head back to the resort. When we reached the resort, we went to the pool again for a dip in the water. Then my wife and I went to the sea near the jetty shore area where she want to try snorkel there since she can’t snorkel just now with us in the deep sea.
After that, we went to the pool area to wash up. While we pass by the pool, we saw there was the water aerobic class currently held there. There were quite a number of guest who join this class and looks fun 🙂
After lunch. We went to stroll around the island for a while before heading back to our villa for a rest. We had a long dip in our bath tub. Then Michael & Janice came over to our villa to relax at the balcony and drink the free champaign provided by the resort when we first check in. So relax…………… how good if I could relax like this at least 3 times per week…. 😛 I saw a baby shark swimming around our villa area….
Tonight theme is Elegant. Again, we did not bring any formal clothes, thus we wear what we had. i saw a lot of guest here follow the theme tonight. I dunno how they could bring so many clothes to this resort for holiday? 😛
After dinner, we went back to take the face mask and bring it to the villa lounge. Along the way back, I took a photo of the map of this island and some photos of the sting ray and fishes near our villa.
When we reached the lounge again, we lie on the net above the water with mask on our face, while looking at the sky full of stars again… Its so cooling with the mask on our face and so relaxing lie on the net watching the night full of stars. 🙂 but its a bit embarrassing because some guest were near us looking at us with the mask on our face… The security guard there even greet my wife saying Good Evening Ghost. Hahahaha….. 🙂
After that, we went back to rest for the night.
