Date: 22 April 2017 Days: 2 days
Being a “Perakian”, I have never been to Pangkor until April this year.
It was a sudden plan by my mom. She is approached by her friend who is also our neighbour. This is the first time she had asked me to bring her to a trip. So, I agreed to her request without a second thought.
This is my first time visit to Pangkor. Although, it was a simple getaway, Pangkor impressed me. It’s such a beautiful heaven indeed.
We had rented a chalet typed room with only MYR100 at Teluk Nipah. To our surprise, the room can be easily accommodate by 4/5 people. It also comes with an extra bed. That means the average cost per person is only MYR20. The owner of the chalet is a cool guy. He didn’t even bother how many of us are staying in a room. *Mind voice: I should have brought my entire family. The bathroom is slightly narrow where it’s purposely design such a way to allocate more space for the bed. Who want the bathroom when the beautiful beach is just five minutes away by walking distance?
On our first day, we visited the famous Pangkor Kaaliyaman temple. The temple is still under renovation and to be completed very soon.
Then, we rented a van with MYR80 p/day to tour the Island. The driver also carries tour guy role. He is an Indian. After a long chat, we found out the guy is our long distance relation. The world is getting smaller by the day.
We started with Pangkor Muzium tour (obviously, this is not my mom’s kind of stuff). After that, a Chinese temple, a jetti, the dok, the famous handmade mee company, the low priced seafood shop, the Pangkor helipad, the best snorkelling areas, the beaches and good value hotels.
Then, we settled in our rooms to enjoy our home cooked lunch. Right after the lunch, we decided not to waste time. We changed our dress and headed to beach. It seems like we couldn’t be bothered by 4pm.
The beach is just a five minutes away from our stay. A well kept beach with crystal clear water is home for living corals. There are few small islands located few distance away from main beach which is good for coral visit. This beach view is too overwhelming for eyes. I didn’t know Pangkor beaches can be this entertaining and stress relieve beauty.
It seems like my mom couldn’t resist the very eye catching beach, so she decided to jump into waves to enjoy the sea water. She also enjoyed the little swing with her own singing talent. I rarely see a smile in her face. Witnessing her joy is the best thing happened to me in this trip. I videotaped of her swing happiness to keep it unto my memory.
There are also many water motorsport activities available with reasonable price to boost enjoyment. This time I have decided to skip them and will try them in my next visit.
For dinner, we enjoyed wet kuew tiew and fresh shellfish. Since the seafood is so fresh here, so I have decided to try the shellfish after so many years and it didn’t disappoint me.
On late night, we had a walk and bought some souvenirs. To my surprise my mom bought me a ke chain for my car. This is the first time she is buying a souvenir for me and I’m so impressed. I want her to do the selection for me so I have decided to keep my choices to myself. This is one of the precious gifts I ever received. Thanks mom.
The next morning, I woke up early and decided to take a walk to the beach. These crazy people love the beach so much until they have decided to get wet as early as 7pm. Crazzzy.
The morning scenery is way more beautiful. I think I sat on those rocks for more than an hour until I couldn’t realise the tide and I lost my shoes to the sea.(maybe she had an eye on my shoes I guess)
Then, we did nothing much but get wet all day long until we get tired and decided to go home around 3pm.
I’m planning for second visit to this place on coming August with my whole family.
Till then, wait for my Pangkor II post.
