Chapter 183 - Where It Belong

Tioman is gorgeous! beautiful place. i really encourage people to go there. especially when you're looking for bustling-city escapade. go there with the intention to get away from work, and you'll find your peace there. leave your messy things at home. laptop, paperwork, annoying children or your nagging wife. For me, the 3 days staying in Tioman is not enough. i need at least 4 days. Lot of things i didn't get to explore during my staying there. I missed the forest walk to Juara, the sandy beach on the right-side of Tioman. I read, along the way there, you'll encounter a waterfall and a place you wouldn't want to miss if you're going Tioman... and I missed it. it's OK, at least I tried 'mencandat sotong'. May is the best season to candat sotong. It's when the squids are getting hornier, I guess. Supposely, we cannot mencandat sotong in Tioman since they announced Tioman as Taman Maritim. Who Cares?! people are still doing it, and no sea-patrol doing their rounds. meaning that, they also don't care. We managed to caught 20 kgs of squids (plus the ice I think), and asked the chef at the hotel to make some dishes out of the squids. Nasi Goreng Sotong, Sotong goreng tepung and Sotong Onion. Sotong sotong sotong...

Also, if you're going, then don't forget to do at least this, snorkeling. The inn or resort where you staying might not give you with the best beaches, so, go snorkeling. I did, and it was a magnificent experience. I can say to that, beside me being a tow-boat during the snorkeling activity. forget about that... as i said, some beaches only can give you a tip of wonderful underwater scenery because most of them only have dead coral and not so many beautiful fishes. i went snorkeling for almost a day, while some of my friends were staying back because of their family, and they missed it... (see, i've told u about leaving kids and wife at home, or at least leave the kids with maid at the hotel room). So, i've only heard heap of praises towards petty corals and fishes from those who missed it during our small snorkeling trip to a spot a bit farther than our beach the day after. i laughed. i laughed until i peed in the ocean and gave the fishes some of my fresh juice. one thing that bugged me during my snorkeling activity was baby-jellyfishes. there are soo many of them, though they dont bite, u'll feel bit itchy when u swim through them. Oh yeah, if you're rabun jauh, u definitely need the goggle with power. I bought one for RM55. it worth it! So when u swim around the minah2 salleh, u'll see bouncy corals and round and juicy fishes..... just kidding, u still can see the bouncy corals and round and juicy fishes without the minah2 salleh around. they are everywhere... on the ocean's floor... of course..

Also, pack some food from home. things are bit expensive there. we're talking about cheezels, twisties and any other unhealthy snacks u can think off. I suddenly developed a sudden crave for Snickers there and bought almost everytime i went to a shop. bit expensive la...

below are some pictures taken so i can share with you guys, the beautifulness of Tioman.
