Holy Vacation (Day 1)

I love this period of time every year.
December is actually the most anticipating month of the year to me. It's the time where I usually go for my vacations with family and friends. And it's Christmas which draws my love for it.

Has anyone been to Kukup Island?
Well, it's located in Johor. It's a fishing village. Mom said it's a new experience for us who lives in the big city, to get to know and to experience the life in a fishing
Now you would think that this isn't fun at all. In fact, you would start to picture the scenes of the fishing village like I did. But, everything was not as horrible as I expect. Indeed it was a little dirty cau
se the toilet's excretion tunnel is connected into the sea, that means our urine and feaces were all disposed right to the sea!
That anyway did not spoil my trip. I'll let the pictures tell everything.

Us people.

Mini mart.

Wastage spoiled the view a lil bit.

Small and narrow walking lane.
Bicycles and motorbikes are often used to travel around in this village.

Houses on the sea.


This is probably the biggest house in this on-the-sea-village.

The place where we stayed.

My room.

The living room.

The sea view.

Dining area.

Our lunch.

Their famous home-made dishes.
Tastes really good!

Flip-flops prepared by the host for us.
I picked this design. Nice huh?

Native products

Our dessert--yummy rainbow agar!

Jelly fishy!!

Huuuuge jelly fishy!!

After we had lunch, I borrow bicycles from our host and did some cycling around the village.
Boy! I was SO afraid that I will fall into the sea! The pathway was SO narrow that whenever I saw people passing by, I would stop. After all, better safe than sorry right?
I found that there're many temples in the village. The village is actually like our own homes.
It's not like those village in the woods where there's no televisions and electricity and water supply. In fact it's cool!
Just imagine our house were built on the sea and that is it!
And oh my Godness Kukup actually draws TONS of visitors to come visit. Some of them are Singaporeans, Malaysians and even foreigners too!
It's really worth a visit. You guys really should go.

Our dinner.

My beautiful aunt.

We had fresh seafood for dinner!

After dinner comes the karaoke session.
I sang my lungs out for 3 hours with my cousins while my other kiddie cousins went fishing with my uncle and aunts. I joined them fishing later.
Mom went to the neighbors and made new friends. All of them were young adults (all of them were males) aged 18-22.
I wonder why is mom so young-hearted. She even dragged me with her and announced that she wants a karaoke-challenge with them!!
I gave her a BiG OH-EM-GEEE expression.

I went to bed quite early that night.
Gettin ready for my Day 2!
