It started when 4 of us were too busy with life and had no time to think like we did 13 years back. Our WhatsApp group remained silent for a few months. One fine day, Achik (plum guy red shirt) broke the silence. He said, “lamo tok kukuk group nih”. It means, it’s been a while since our last conversation in the group. Then suddenly one by one started to respond Achik. Then Along (the kopiah guy) came out with this idea. He said, “why don’t we take a break and go do something out of our comfort zone”. Since he lives in Marang, Terengganu he suggested candat sotong activity.

At first I was like, what the hell is candat sotong (not that I’m a bimbo). Then I started googling and thinking this is not bad at all. Brand new experience for all of us. So we started looking the right dates. Alang (the nelayan look) was a bit reluctant to join at first considering he is always busy and workaholic. So, 3 of us had to convince Alang that this would be the best thing to do in conjunction with our reunion too. The last time we did something together was 13 years ago and that’s it.

In 2 days, we found the right dates, everyone agreed and decided to give it a shot. The plan was so random that when I told my wife I was going for candat sotong in a week time she laughed so hard. I still don’t get it until today.

So, the package is you get a boat, their people will take you to the ocean and help you with the activity. Although you have zero knowledge, it’s not a problem because these people will advice what to do. We took off from Marang jetty and overnight in the middle of the ocean. The next day we packed up and went straight to Pulau Kapas for a relaxation. We were very fortunate because the weather was perfect. The photos tell it all.

Man, I’m writing this at 2.40 am in the morning and thinking to stop right here. Wish I had more energy to write the details of the journey but all I could think of now is sleep. Hope you enjoy the photos and if you love them, it is available for purchase as well.

Cheerio!

If I could describe a perfect and blissful holiday, this is it. Everything went smoothly when the weather was super nice. More importantly, I have no trouble carrying my camera wherever I go. Unlike Koh Lipe, it was an unfortunate trip because of the weather condition. Nevertheless, the island was absolutely beautiful.

Langkawi on the other hand, was fabulous.
