I was over in Tioman for the past 4 days and one thing I must say, I do wish to visit it again! It’s a totally awesome place if you wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Took many a photos which can be found after the jump.
The first picture I took upon reaching Tioman. A real beautiful sight. Exhilarating I would say. The clear blue waters was certainly welcoming.
The boat in the background was the only means of transportation from Mersing, Malaysia to our resort in Tioman. An 1hr 30mins – 2 hours boat journey. I’m glad I survived the whole boat journey.. do get a little seasickness from time to time ^^;
Monitor Lizard spotted!
Tioman’s about 32 miles away from Mersing, Malaysia. There’s an airport in Tioman but I guess it would be expensive to take a flight there. Take a closer look and you can spot the words ‘Nipah‘ (Higurashi Reference?!)
A trek into the mountains behind us. Got bitten by lots of mosquitos ORZ
Some scribbling in Malay me guess. I was hoping to find some "I love You" or "XXX person was here" notes.
I got reminded of a scene from Makoto Shinkai’s films. Can’t remember where though.
Trying to take photos of these little ant buggers are really tough. They move about too quickly!
Dinner which consisted of curry chicken, prawns, vegetables etc. Guess which plate belongs to me ^^;
Ramly Burger! I have to admit that it’s my first time trying it out. Absolutely lovely stuff. Had about 5 Ramly Burgers during my stay in Tioman. Works as a great snack whenever I got hungry.
Ramly Burger typically consists of a beef or chicken patty, margarine, onions, an egg, mayonnaise and ketchup (Tomato Sauce). They have a certain flavour to it, which is different from regular burgers. I think it’s the way it’s cooked. The patty is wrapped in a thin layer of egg before adding in the rest of the ingredients.
Picture of my first Ramly Burger. Itadakimasu!
A bit of soccer when we’re bored. Been a long time since I last played it so I got easily tired ^^; Blame the anime, manga and otaku goods!
Group photo before heading off to another island to visit the waterfall. Check out that mist that’s covering the mountain! I’m not the picture though :/
Have no idea what this is for. perhaps for storing water?
Ending this post with a picture of a cat. Didn’t know where to stick this to decided to throw it at the end.
There are actually still some more pictures which I missed out as I didn’t bring my camera along with me on the second day of the trip. Will let you guys know when I get the pictures.
I did feel that it was a nice trip to Tioman as I really needed to get away from the city area for a few days to clear my head a little and enjoy time from civilization. Was really struck by how life is different in Tioman compared to the fast paced Singapore.
Taking photos also posed a new challenge to me as I have to say, it was tough trying to capture the beauty of Tioman. The photos here are probably a mixture of bad and good photos, which I’m somewhat pleased and yet disappointed with ^^;
