#Travelpost: My very first diving experience @ Tioman Island, Malaysia

This has been one of the most adventures weekend getaway for me and guess what, I've overcome my fear that I had for the past 25 years in me! HAHA! 

Do read on for my VERY FIRST EXPERIENCE of my diving adventure!


My interest for diving began 1 year ago when I started treating Keith & KJ during my internship as a Chiropractic Intern. Initially, I was rather hesitated to learn diving as I wouldn't classify myself to be someone who knows how to swim and now I want to dive! I must be out of my mind! However, after hearing those amazing stories from both Keith & KJ (which they are my instructors today! YAY!) about their experience at the under water world, I began to overcome my fear and finally decided to take up the "Open Water Diver License".

Soon after, I began my lesson with DIVERTAINMENT @ Lake view, Subang Jaya. What i like about it here is that, they provide unlimited classes for all their students until they are ready before making the trip to the sea as each and everyone of us progresses at different rates.


Here's a picture of us just before we begin with our lesson for the day
(Yeap! That's KJ right in the center!)

It took me a week of classes at Divertainment before I go out for a 3 days 2 nights to Redang for my Open Water License. To be licensed as an open water diver, I am required to do 4 dives during this trip and there will be some skills to be completed during each dives. Nevertheless, dives throughout was still fun!


 Getting ready for the day

Last but not least, it was an exceptionally great experience that I certainly did not regret and I would definitely encourage any of you to go learn diving if it's also part of your bucket list! Many thanks to those who have supported and encourage to do this (You know who you are =P).

Cheers to more diving in the future! I'm already looking forward to my next dive!

So stay tuned! :)

#Foodpost: Indomie Indobowl @ Sungai Besi

I'm sure many of you have came across the craze of the opening of this new cafe/eatery at Sungai Besi- Indobowl. It went all viral with thousands of shares and likes on their facebook page! I've got the chance to try their indomie over the weekend. Few of my friends who have tried, gave me a few recommendation on what to have there! Check out how my experience there below :) 


A collage of the food that I managed to try during my visit


Indomie Mumbo Jumbo
RM59


This Mumbo Jumbo is a great sharing platter for up to 3 to 4 pax! Perfect size for friends and family gathering. It consist of 4 different types of meats, generous amount of indo-mie and topped with 4 fried eggs. Not forgetting their in-famous red and green sambal on the sides which give the platter the extra kick to it! As a indo-mie and chilly lover myself, I definitely enjoyed myself to this platter! 



Nasi Pecel Lele
RM9

This dish reminds me of the "Malay style ikan bakar with Sambal". The fish is very fresh accompanied by the red chilly that's perfect! For those fish lovers, this might the one for you :)





Nasi Goreng Seafood
RM10


Nasi Iga
RM15

This Nasi Iga consist of braised beef short ribs served with their special red sambal 


Nasi Ayam Madura
RM12

This seems to be one of their more popular choice here.  Served with fresh cooked rice, sliced tomato and cucumbers and some raw cabbage and a deliciously huge piece of protein that's barbecue to perfect golden brown. This would be very worthy to eat priced at RM12 per portion. 

Sides


Beef Satay - 5 sticks
RM9

This is one of their more popular sides that's available on their menu that we managed to try :) 


Here's their menu,

Sabaidee!!!

It's our 6th day here at Luang Prabang and it's gonna be a days filled with activites! We started off the day with giving offering to monks early in the morning at 6am. Again, if you would like to give some offerings when you're here, you can also do so by some of them from the locals here.






After giving offerings, we went back to our hotel for our breakfast and head out straight to Pak Ou Cave visit. We bought our tickets here at this location in the picture below.





Here's the boat taxis getting ready for boarding








Wine/Whisky village where it's one of the stop on the way to Pak Ou cave. You can find locally made wines and whisky here. We bought a bottle of White Sticky rice Whisky. Havent got the chance to taste it yet thought :)








Finally we arrive after approximately 30 minutes boat ride



Pak Ou cave is one of the most respected holy sites in Lao. Pak Ou cave have a history dating back thousands of years. This caves is packed with over 4000 Buddha icons, a shrine to the river spirit, and Lord Buddha,  are set in a dramatic limestone cliff at the point where Nam Ou joints the Mekong River. At this place, there are 2 different caves to visit namely Tham thing ( the lower one) and Tham Theung ( the higher one). 


Remember to bring a torch light when you visit! It's really really dark inside.

Later in the afternoon, we are back to Luang Prabang town and we decided to have lunch here at this Tamarind Tree Restaurant Mekong


This is a great place if you're looking to try out some local dishes with it's price being very reasonable. What's even better is that, you're dining by the famous Mekong River :)




Here's our lunch!


This local delicacy is one of my favorite during lunch best eaten with sticky rice.


After lunch, we did some walk around at the town visiting some temples around





On a side note, after some research and looking around, we realised that this money exchange has one of the best rate here at Luang Prabang! (HAHA!) So, those of you who's looking for currency exchange, this would be it.


Local ice creams which surprisingly delicious!


Here's one of the MUST VISIT place here at Luang Prabang which is the Phu Si Mountain which is located in the center of Luang Prabang town. It is said and recommended by many that here has arguably one of the best sunset in South East Asia! There are a small entrance fee of 20,000 Kip that you'll need to pay and also bring a long a pair of shoe for easier climb up the mountain. There are steps made for the climb so worry not, it would not be a difficult one to get to the top to enjoy the view :)


Remember to be here early to get yourself a great spot to enjoy the sun set :)





Sunset by Mekong River



It's time for dinner and we accidentally stumbled upon this romantic looking restaurant which makes up curious of what they serve and the price of course. It turns out to be a BBQ Steamboat restaurant! We decided to try it after looking through the menu :)






Here are some sides that goes together with your BBQ meats



Meats here are fresh and it's cooked with charcoal which makes it more fragrant (Garing in Malaysian terms =P)




My verdict, this place worth the try! It has a very similar concept to Barbeque Plaza back home in Malaysia. However, great place to chill with your friends and family with affordable price! This can be one of the secret gems of Luang Prabang. 

This marks the end of my Luang Prabang, Laos trip this time round! Looking forward to my next trip! Stay tune for my next trip :)  Do drop me an email at "liew_yanwei_05@hotmail.com" and I will give you more information to the best that I can :)
