✈ Redang Trip: Sun,Sand,Sea

Yeah...celebration!! After  years and years of studying...I am at last a free bird..no more assignments, no more lame lecturers. no more 'barred' from exam, no more boring tutors... bye-bye UTAR ... and on the brighter side Graduation Trip ..

Yeah...after months of planning.. we had decided on Redang Island... From HK to Bali to Redang.. T.T
PTPTN should pay us more on our final semester loR...cause last semester must got trip ma...

We took an 8 hours bus trip from KL to Kuala Terrenganu.. Did not want to take bus, but left with no choice cause money not enough.


If you didn't know, buses to east Malaysia are only available at Hentian Putra.A few of us while waiting for the bus to arrive. We took Transnasional. No choice because other bus company does not have the departure time that we wanted.

We reached Kuala Terrenganu at about 6 in the morning. And the scheduled boat to the island is not until 9 am. Thus, we had some nasi lemak at the bus station. A van arrived at 7 and took us to the jetty. Journey is around 45 mins.


The jetty to Redang Bay Resort is old and shabby compared to Redang Beach Resort and those of Laguna Redang. I went Redang Beach Resort during my last trip to Redang. Redang Bay is cheaper compared to the other 2 mentioned.. We paid RM706 per person for 4D/3N, twin sharing. Inclusive of bus, boat, accommodation and food.


The room is quite basic. With a queen sized bed and a single bed. Bathroom, toilet, dressing table, cupboard, but no TV. How sad. The room is clean and I loved that the twin sharing rooms are in rows of chalet type houses. The resort also has a swimming pool but I do not advised any living being to be in it, as it is cloudy and dirty. It looks more like a fish tank than a pool.

Redang Bay provides 4 meals, from breakfast, lunch, teatime to dinner. But almost all resorts in Redang provides the same. Redang Bay practices buffet style/eat-all-you-can.

Breakfast


Not much varieties for breakfast: fried noodles (beehun/kuew teow/mee), porridge w sides (fried anchovies/ green onion/pickles), toast bread, steamed pau, juice, coffee, tea. 

Lunch



Lunch is ok. They have fish, chicken, vegies, duck meat, random fried stuffs served with rice. Nothing fancy about the lunch. Just to keep you fuelled for the snorkelling activities.

Tea-time


BBQ Dinner




All the foods served are just plain ok, nothing go crazy about.But the view from the restaurant is magnificent.



We also spotted the Miss UTAR photo shooting going on around Laguna Redang..ROFL....



Happy moments end fast. And now everyone is busy-ing in finding job. So, good bye to UTAR Broadcasting T3. Till we meet. Good luck and buhbye everyone!!

Also, a note to myself DIET, diet and Diet, or else all my bikinis need to be thrown away T.T
