Krabi & Bangkok Itinerary 2014

Actually for this Thailand trip, all of us 9 people joining for it but due to some personal reason that only left 4 of us travelling. Before this, the Bangkok had political instability issue. Luckily that in June, the Thailand government announced that the curfew had been cancelled and also seeing many friends safety back from Thailand. If not, we are planning stay in hotel at night due to curfew.

For our Thailand trip, we went to Krabi first for island hoping and followed by Bangkok. All the flight tickets had been bought by last year with amount of RM 350 during Air Asia Promotion. Besides that, we had purchase 20 kg luggage for flight from Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur about 600 baht or RM 60 while for flight Kuala Lumpur to Kota Kinabalu about RM 30. Last, our luggage is around 13kg. I was sharing luggage with my friend.

8.00 a.m. – 10.00 a.m. Labuan >> Menumbok (Big Ferry)
10.30 a.m. – 12 a.m. Menumbok >> Kota Kinabalu (Bus)

My initial plan was take Ferry Express from Labuan to Kota Kinabalu (KK) but when I went to ticket counter, I had been told that Ferry will only available for afternoon session. As initial plan cannot work so I change to another plan which is taking big ferry to Menumbok and follow by bus to KK.

Around 7.30 a.m., it was stated raining and I feel lucky that I had bring backpack instead of luggage as luggage was not so convenience for me as I need to go up and down of the ferry stairs. This was my first time alone took this ferry as usually I took for ferry express by self. That day was Wednesday which was not in weekend so the ferry was not crowded by people.  


After few hours in ferry, the ferry arrived at Menumbok. Before went down from ferry, I had write the plate number of bus on my hand in order for me to know which bus should I go without refer the small ticket. The bus ticket was bought along when purchase ferry ticket.

Ferry Ticket for LBN-MBK: RM 5.00
Bus Ticket for MBK-KK: RM 18.00

When I searched around to find my bus, I had been asked by a man what number plate of bus that I took. Then, I showed him the bus ticket and he pointed me to the bus. The bus that I took was double decker which same as my previous Kundasang trip’s bus when I was back to Labuan. The seat in bus is free seat so I choose to sit at above.

Around 10 a.m., the bus departure. During the bus trip, a man who sits behind my seat was sleeping with sound. Look like he was too tired. Around 12.00 p.m., the bus arrived at bus stop. My friend waits for me at there. After that, she brings me for lunch.

Yee Fung Laksa
My friend brings me to Kedai Kopi Yee Fung which located at Jalan Gaya. I had been heard for this shop before as it is famous with laksa. That time we went to there, it was crowded by people. The staff at there asked us to share a table with others. We had ordered for laksa and Ice Lemon Tea.

After ordered for laksa, I had gone to toilet for a while. When I was backed from washroom, I was told by my friend that many people want to take my chair. Luckily, I went there with my friends so that my friend can help me look for my seat. If not, my seat will be occupied as everyone looks for a seat.

The Yee Fung Laksa contains of vermicelli, prawn, fried egg, chicken and so on. Different from others laksa that it did not taste spicy but it is full of creamy curry taste. It is very suitable for those who dislike spicy. The people that sit opposite us had ordered Claypot Chicken Rice.  

Dinner at Kedai Kopi Kelombong
In night, my friend brings me to Kedai kopi Kelombong for dinner. We had ordered prawn, fried noodle, Guo Tie (Potstickers) which is a type of dumpling and chicken wing. That night, only two of us to finish these entire dishes so we feel so full after this dinner.

3. Rest comfortability for 15-20 minutes and remove the mask.
4. Remove the mask and let the skin absorb the remaining essence by gently patting the skin.


Pattern mask
When took out the mask from sheet, the essence of mask did not drop out that is very good as for some mask, I quite headache when the essence keep dropping out. This mask is not a plain mask as it has pattern on it. Although it is lemon mask, I did not smell any lemon scent.

Labuan Buddhist Association Mooncake Festival 2014

[2013]

12 September 2014

Around 6.30 p.m., it started with Vegetarian dinner. As that time, I was very hungry so I did not take a picture of my food. Haha.. It was in a buffet style. After finished dinner, all of us must wash our plate by self, not like in café that left the plate on the table.


The event was started around 7.30 p.m. by singing San Bao Ge (三宝歌). 

Host of the day
It followed by Chairman Speech. This year, it has a new Chairman while the previous Chairman is assisting the Chairman. 

Chairman speech
After Chairman Speech, it followed by a cute girl singing. Small girl can sing alone on the stage, she was so brave compare with me. 


Now was game times, the game was “What the big wind blow?” (大风吹, 吹什么?). The host will say “big wind blow” Then the children will ask “blow what?” and the host will answer a thing such as lipstick, cartoon socks and so on. Then the children need to find out the thing that request by host. For the first child that success to find out the thing will get a paper lantern. 


After games, it followed by dance performance by children. 



After dance performance was singing performance by “Elsa” as the kid wears princess cloth that made she looks like Elsa.


Then the event was followed by signal language performance.



After signal language performance was girls dance performance. My sister is one of the teacher to teach them dancing. 




Again was “What the big wind blow?” game that hosted by the host.


After the game, it was followed by singing performance by 3 little girls. The sound of 3 little girls are so sharp and loud so at this performance, you cannot talk because your friends definitely cannot listen to your voice as their voices are too power than your so you just stay quiet and enjoy it.



After the power singing performance, it’s times for game. This game titled “Yes or Not?” The children will queue up at one line. Then the host will ask some questions, if you think the answer is “Yes” then stand on left side and vice versa. At first, the children were quite blurring with the rules of game and questions so they just followed with each other. I think the questions that prepared were quite hard for the children to understand what it means.





Previously the games were played by children, now the game mixed with children and their parents. First, all the parents’ eyes will be covered by eye mask then they need to carry their kid on their back to go around. Then their kids will feed their parents to eat mooncake. The parent who is the first to finish the mooncake will be the winner.







After the games was singing performance by a kid. 


Then finished of the singing performance and followed by signal language performance by a group of kids.  



After finished watching the signal language performance by kids then now is the same performance but by a group of young teenagers. You can watch the video which as below:-


After that, it followed by game titled “Find father, find mother, find child”. This game hosted by UMS Labuan’s students. This game is need a father or mother with his or her child. Then the child’s eye will be cover by eye mask. The father or mother need to change their seat and start to let the children whose eye covered to touch their hand and face. For those child feel that he or she is one of their parents after touching some of the fathers or mothers will stand on the back of the parents that they choose.


After game finished, the children will take off the eye mask and see whether they had choose the right mother or father. Some of the children had miss choose for father or mother, it is so funny. Even one of the children cannot find her mother after touching all the parents’ hand and face. 





This game had 2 rounds and for the second round, I had recording the game which you can watch as below:-



This was the last round of “What the big wind blow?” game.


Then it was followed by the poetry reading. Now a day, the kids were so talented that they even can read poetry.  


After poetry reading was the dance performance by a group of pretty girls. 


After dance performance was the signal language performance by a group of UMS Labuan’s students. Every year, they will come to join for mooncake festival in Labuan Buddhist Association.



This event marked a beautiful ending with kids playing around with lantern.
