The second day when I woke up after a sweet night sleeping in the comfort of my lovely hotel room, I decided its time for some activities.
Hohoho.. this is what I have been waiting for.. Nicole is heading out to sea!!
We rented a glass bottom boat by the beach, paid in US dollars!! And out to sea we go. Wee~~~~
Focusing our attention to the bottom of the boat as the driver streer our way away from land, I realised the sea of Bali was not what I had expected. Shallow and grassy...
Yea you heard me, Grass!! Theres freaking real land grass in the sea!! A whole lot of them!
Watch this for proof,
No joke, this is the first time I see real grass growing in sea water AKA salted water. Poor uncle, always have to take out the grass from the propeller, that's how shallow the sea is.
Do I resemble my mom? 'peace~'
Slowly, we moved into deeper area, and the Captain suggested us to do a bit of snorkeling.
So after I changed into swimsuit (I already wear inside la) and put on my life jacket, the captain and I made a dive from the back of the boat. My mom was determined to stay on the boat.
I must say, she was smart choosing not to dip in, cause the water was so COLD~~!!!
Jumping up and down in the water
mmm.. not bad actually
I wouldn't say Bali sea is the best I have been to. If I have to compare, I would say the sea in Redang (an island in Malaysia) is much clearer, more fishes, and more varieties of corals. But still it's (Bali) definitely worth a go, especially you don't get to see underwater land grass everyday. And the water is hell cold!
After snorkeling, the captain took us to Turtle Island, with me soaking wet... =.= (what are you thinking). So I let down my hair to air dry.
I don't want to explain what's on Turtle Island, it would make me sound retarded. Besides, who named the island in the first place, it's like calling my hometown Melaka after Melaka tree. Mr. Obvious?
Click on the video to see the difference between a 5 year-old turtle and a 40 year-old turtle. Apology for the lack of camera techniques, my mom is a technophobe~
For those of you who don't understand Mandarin, the first part I was asking a fellow tourist to help my mom with the camera. The second part, my mom had problem differentiating taking a photo and a video with a camera, thus left me feeling like an idiot. >_<
I'm the Joker, get it?
pluck her hair
poke her head
The star of the island, everyone loves her
And finally, meet the love of my life~
What? I love snakes~
