Ao Nang beach.
Just 5 min leisure walk from The Palace Ao Nang

Then we walk around Ao Nang and of course window shopping and surveying. We are too excited looking for Krabi T-shirt. Please bargain the price!.. Btw, their price are actually expensive. Not a purrrfect place for shopping ladies!.. Shops open around 10am and close late until 2pm. There are 24 hr shops like 7-Eleven too.. also the Ocean Mart.



Since this is our first trip to Krabi and we did a lot of research.
- Read info on Krabi culture, halal food, place to visit from website, blog or etc.
- Google map. You can see hotel location and can print out of needed.
- We book our transfer from Krabi airport to Hotel and Hotel to Krabi Airport tru Air Asia.
- We book our hotel from Agoda.com. Book during sale. We got RM 98 one nite.
- We book Tour To Phi Phi Island tru Air Asia. (We have to change to Jungle Explore due to the weather. This might happen during low peak season)
- Monitor exchange rate (This is optional except for Rupiah. I can see not much different. RM 10 = 100TB)


Shop terrace opposite the Ao Nang beach.

Shops and pub.. Low peak season..more peaceful.


Spot the Tsunami Alert Tower at Ao Nang beach.


The Palace Aonang is on the right side ot this pica..


Krabi helmet

Taxi Price. Convert to RM.. not much different in MY.


Bicycle anyone?... I prefer motorbike.. :)


ATM if you need to withdraw some..
Btw, there is CIMB in Krabi but in Krabi town.

We decided to stay at Ao Nang beach for sunset before heading to the Night Market. Here in Krabi is 1 hour late form our normal time in Malaysia. Magrib call is about 6.20 pm same goes to Subuh. Here some pica of sunset. The best of all.. since new to DSLR. Manage to try out manual setting.. :)

I like the colors.. and the lime stone..

Allah creations..Subhanallah..


My 1st Jump at Ao Nang Beach..

Form our reading in the net, there will be a night market on Wednesday. So, we confirm with our hotel information counter. The night market is actually at Nopparattara Beach which is 6km form Ao Nang Beach. We took tuk-tuk to get there. My first tuk-tuk ride. Fun!.. very fast!..

Our Tuk-tuk Driver
yg kat belakang Macam Black..tp aku rasa lagi handsome kot.. kah3..
able to speak english little2 katernyer..


Once we reach the night market, we feel like going to our local pasar malam. Most of them are muslim since they wear hijab and kopiah. Pasar malam food are cheap and sedap!!!.. compare to hotel food. All food RM 2 which is 20TB.

Acik jual kuih..Halal nih.. huhu..


Sengettt satuuu

I bought Phad Thai.. few kuih and drinks. Nice. All HALAL.. Food no worries.. Before I came here.. one of my fren said to me.. it is dificult to get halal food in Krabi!.. From my expirience its totally not true!.. Just find stall sign star and moon. Besides, they know that we are muslim and they are muslim coz of wearing hijab. There is alot of muslim in Krabi and there are friendly.

Vacation Gateway. Krabi 2011. Part 1

Saturday, June 25, 2011


Finally its June 2011.

My vacation this year is to Krabi, Thailand. Our flight to Krabi, Thailand depart at 1.20pm Malaysia time and arrive krabi at 1.35pm. Time difference between Krabi and Malaysia is 1 hour. Our journey took about 1.5 hour to Krabi. Due to the bad weather in Penang...a lot of air pocket in the air.. Sacray!!


As we arrived at the Krabi Airport..our transfer van already waiting for us. We book from air asia since we afraid that it will be difficult to get any local transfer. Our cost is actually RM33 per person compare to local it it is only 150 TB which is RM15. Very cheap!..


From Krabi Airport to Aonang Beach, it took about 20 min. We book our hotel from Agoda.com. Since, June is a low peak season, one night cost about RM 90 only. We choose Aonang Palace because of its location. It looks like a shop houses but for me its enuf for us to sleep. We are not on honeymoon vacation.. :P


Before we book the hotel, we did our research tru the internet. Stumble into nuraina.com or naim.com. they provide complete information on hotel and food at Krabi. An yes Aonang Palace its also the best for a traveler like me.


Reason.. near tourist information center. 5 min to aonang beach. 5 min to long tail ticket center. 5 min to Ocean mart and 7-Eleven. Local station for tuk tuk is only in front of the hotel. Local halal street food is also near to Mc Donald which is in the same row of ocean mart. Besides, i can get Aonang tee short for 130TB form the shop in front of our hotel. The cheapest I can found at Aonang. Some sell for 140TB, 250TB. You need to bargain!.. Buy more get more discount..

Aonang Palace swimming pool.

Upon arrival, we are welcome with a fruit punch drink. deli.o.s!.


Our Room

Just nice.. very clean and friendly staff.

You can get free wifi almost everywhere in Aonang either in hotel or even massage center. So you can facebook everywhere.. :)

I did my flight check in using wifi from my hp.
Hassle free!..

Once we check in, we perform our jamak prayer and yes.. walk around to Aonang beach. We can see the beach from our window. Our plan tonight.. exploring night market...

to be continue in part 2..

Running Clinic and up close with Sarimah Ibrahim, The biggest looser season 1 host..

Saturday, June 18, 2011


I like Shape Mag.. kurang suka Rapi..hahaha.. Hanya Shape mag yang sesuai dengan jiwa saya walaupun baju2 yg disyorkan dalam mag ini adalah tidak sanggup dipakai oleh saya.. HAHAH..
Btw, Shape Mag is a for woman lah kan..kalau Men's Health untuk lelaki. Btw..men's health best aper content dia cuma saya tak sanggup nak beli sebab cover mag yang sanggat2 over expose. Nanti mak oyah dtg umah naik heran tgk anak permpuan dia nih.. HAHA..





I terus fall in love when I bought this Mag during its 1st release.. Kalau Times sold out..gigih gi cari kat outlet lain. All the workout tips, menu, weight loss inspiration..mmg best. Tapi tak ler ikot sebijik sejibon sebab hakikatnya duggan food lagi hebat oso keje yang always travel to KL.. Jam..JAm..Jam.. makan pon dah tak tentu hala.. Nak masak??.. nak kupas bawang pon dah mengelupur kelaparan.. HAHAHA..

Btw, my weight loss journey yet to an end... kata Srimah Ibrahim..slow and steady. Wahh!!.. Macam tahun2 lepas, LIBL join few running event.. finally.. kaki sudah 'kong' and this year..slow down sikit. Kasi full recover. This year dah join KLCC Traesure Hunt and Walk A Payung.. Ehh..dah buat entry walk a payng ker..ehh..lupa kot..

Next.. Shape Night Run. This is my third time. 1st time 11.3km.. then serik. 5km jer termasuk coming soon. So, I registered for Running Clinic organised by Shape Mag. Dulu Bobby Brown.. (Refer HERE)




Colantotte

Event started with main sponsor..Colantotte. Product form Japan tht will reduce pain during workout. Each of 30 participant received one wrist lite. I wear it today at GYM.. rasa apa yer.. humm..only I run with 8.0 kmp/h speed on t.mill..for 5 min thne slow down to 7kmph..in 10 min..not to say improvement. Sebab nak kejar masa.. yet to give feedback la sbb takot physiology jer. BTW..nice to have it free.. :)



Next, about the run.. True Fitness Trainer share his experience..and oso we did warm up.. his suggestion of warm up before run. Talking about food..water..how to land your foot during run.. until today i confuse.... just run lah!..

For this part, I prefer running clinic organized by Standard Charted Run (Refer HERE)


Best part, close and personal with Sarimah Ibrahim.. LIBL duduk betul2 depan Sarimah.. HAHA...she is so gojesss!!!.. terpegun sampai speechless.. kan Ayna!.. HAHAHA. Even dia outspoken tp dia best.. Going tru her weight loss journey..mmg sangat dasyat. Now..dia sangat kurus.. Owh my!.. She is beautiful and healthy!!.. I loike!..

I want to look like her when I am older.. bleh?.. Nothing impossible ehh?.. like muhammad Ali.. if u read abt it lah..


Her tips:
(1) Eat more protein. She always carry an egg. Boil egg.
(2) Soup diet..crap..
(3) White is no good..go for brown bread.
(4) If you go to mamak..ask roti canai with no oil.
(5) If u need to eat bariani.. take more acar rather then nasi.
(6) She did circuit training.
(7) Workout not more than 40 min.
(8) Do not go for diet pills..
(9) Workout in the morning..
(10) Reduce sugar intake.
(11) Calorie in less then calorie out.
(12) Do not eat less.
(13) Do not thin like model.. they are hungry!!!....fat count is a good way.
(14) You will look bulky when you workout coz of water retention..let it be.. it is ok..
I nodded..sangat obvious.. sarimah look at me!..hahah.. ok.. i experience it.. i look bulky now.. *stress.. heavy on upper part.. huh!..
(15) Add in weight training.
(16) Posture..be like a woman not a girl. Do not hide your asset!.. :P

Before she left.. final lucky draw.. since she is Rebook Ambassadors, Lucky Draw received product from Reebok. A beg pack and wrist beg. Worth almost RM 200. Suddenly.. I heard.. "LadyNur"... errr.. Its ME!..

Then she realized..owhh.."LadyNur"..somewhat like LadyGAGA.. woww!!.. She impressed..!!?..

Haihhh..tht is my email name lahh..(in liver)...sengehh jer lahhh...

Btw, I question to the management of the event before start.. somehow.....its OK.. the Lady Nur name bring me luck!.. may be b'coz NUR means Cahaya.. I like this Nick Name actually.. Lady Cahaya.. a woman that bring good to others!.. Ameen. Its tru!!!.. my real name start with NUR.. and all my ladies in family start with Nur.. except my older sista..



Last but not least.. goodies from Shape mag.. I love it.. colantotte bracelet inside.. Reebook Cap woth RM 50.. water bottle.. free pass to bikram yoga.. Must try!.. Spa and 14 day pass to True Fitness. Reebook sock.. Not bad huh!

Gatorade..and yogood!..

On my way back..ada promo fruttare.. bukak tingkap and get the ice cream from fruttare ladies.. Taste not bad.. mmg sangat rasa buah!!..

Murah rezeki hari nih.. All my praise to Allah.. Alhamdulillah..


p/s Ayna: I keep on thinkinggg..with your wordsss.. Do I have good luck??..
Walk a payung luck draw I tak dapat apa2 pon.. :(
But, yes I did received surprise lately..ttb dpt crocs..ttb org belanja..ehh..ttb gaji naik..

Btw, Rezeki drp Allah s.w.t. ask him..
I remind myself.. try not to skip Solat Duha.. Every dAY!..

Every time balik kpg..ader jer hamper..sungguh hairan..dulu x der pon..
Then I asked my mom.. Ada org advise her to perform solat duha..and may be this is among the benefits of performing doing solat duha..

Let's do it!
