Away from the Crowd

3 Oct

The little splash in our private pool was soothing and fun despite the light rain. There was no crowd, no little bratty kids screaming or rude parents jostling for a good spot. The place was all ours.

After a hot shower, everyone had a good rest before we adjourned to the restaurant for dinner. Hubby was clever to order the menu ahead so when we got there at 7.30pm, dinner was served immediately, no waiting. Ahh… bliss.

We then planned ahead for the next two days, what to do and where to go. I can’t wait!



Welcome to Krabi!

3 Oct

After a half hour journey, we made it to the villa, our home for the next four days. Villa Thalanena is an amazing and cozy place with just 8 villas. Talk about privacy!

Our unit is a two bedroom that comes with a pool, a kitchenette and mini lounge. Forget the outdoor activities and sights of Krabi, I am staying put.

We decided to take a short walk to the restaurant for a quick bite then we are all going to jump into the inviting pool, regardless of the rain.




Still at the Airport

3 Oct

One hour later. We are still in queue to get pass immigrations! The earlier flight’s passengers are still in line. The flight after us had passengers coming in to crowd the already crowded situation. Aaarghhh….

I must say things are pretty darn slow. The authorities are shorthanded without anyone to take charge and bark orders to get things moving.

I kept telling myself, patience, we are in no hurry. We had lunch on board. The villa will not run away…

Cloudy, we made it pass immigrations and on our way. Finally. But the cloudiness was only for a brief period, the moment we stepped out from the terminal, the rain came down again!

Sigh… I think I will stay indoors and enjoy the luxury of Villa Thalanena.


Onward to Our Desination

3 Oct

Hubby and I decided to fly Malaysia Airlines to show our support and solidarity with the airline. With the recent two tragedies, we try in our little way to support the national carrier.

Departure was on time and soon, the 737 was descending into Krabi. Whee…

The minute the plane stopped on the tarmac, you can feel the excitement. However, once we got on the bus and into the terminal, the skies opened up and rain came pouring down.

Uh-oh. Not a good start to a sunny holiday. To make matters worse, it was chaotic inside the terminal. There was no proper queue and the passengers just kept piling in. Hmm… a good time to practice patience. After all, we are supposed to be on holiday and shouldn’t be rushing.

The villa is not going to run away.


The Pesky Mosquito

3 Oct

I had set my alarm for 7.00am last night but the pesky lone mosquito woke me up at 5.00am and again at 6.00am. By 6.30am, I was wide awake. Oh well, I might as well wake up.

Yes it’s only Friday but we decided to make the long three-day weekend into a four day escapade by skipping school and work! The bags were all packed last night, the girls are excited and we are ready.

We are at KLIA now, waiting to board. Yay.
