Oh ya, I cut my hair, again. Now it’s super short, but never been easier to maintain. Don’t worry, I’m still me, only maybe….less attractive, still me nonetheless. :p

There’s no point traveling if you were to go to an island in some foreign country, only to listen to what the tour guide/travel agent tells you to do, pay them high commissioned trips of what suppose to be a low budget tour adventure and have them giggled at your stupidity behind your back (or in front of you if you don’t speak Thai).

My island escape was rather an amusing one. I always see my life in a way that god love me so much to let me go through it without a hint of mint and honey every now and then.

Let me assume, boldly, that if a tourist were to go to Koh Samui, he would probably do some or all of the following: scour around the island on either Chaweng or Lamai beach, take tuk-tuk or rent a motorbike to get their way around town, sign up on expensive tours to visit all the tourist hotspots on the island or go out to sea to snorkel in marine parks in some neighbouring islands, dine at pricey so-called Thai restaurant around the islands and probably pay 700 bhat for a 30 mins ride on an elephant or perv on topless ang mo sun-bathing by the beach (I saw one, but only A cup).

I beg to differ.

Instead of taking the usual direct flight / train to Koh Samui, I took an overnight bus, which cost only RM50 to reach Hatyai,

me on night bus

And landed myself in Hatyai bus station

backpack in Thailand
public transport to Koh Samui

Found out I was the only foreign passenger on the bus.

Discovered some dirt cheap full body massage services,

at the hotel

And paid RM20 for an hour massage,


By the beach,

fantastic view
I’m in heaven

Got my first ticket in Thailand,

me and police

While riding on an ATV (all terrain vehicle)

rent an ATV

And still don’t understand what I got fined for

Thai ticket
I can’t read Thai -.-;;

Traveled the distance,

To see some rocks,

Thai people must really love rocks.

Went shopping,


For food,

  21. Out of the 6 boxes, he doesnt check 5 of them, so I guess he checked what your finger's blocking.

    The first check box in your ticked reads :

    "Driving without permited license".

    However, I dont know what got you into the situation, so I might assume corrupt officer if there's no "reason" for you to be fined.

    Oh and the date checked was :
    1st April 07 (2pm)

    I wish I knew that you'll came over to Had Yai, maybe we can have a dinner in Lee Garden or something. xD

  22. That rock looks familiar.... hmmm Did you purposely take it from that angle?
