A good friend of mine, Irfa Sharafina is an aqua freak. She loves everything about water and that includes island. Whenever we went to lepak, she always told me about her majestic obsession towards island, especially Redang Island. Things got funny no more when my friend from the same circle, Izzul Syafiq is really into the sea as well. I have been listening to their excitement for more than a year. To be truth, island is never really my place to begin with because I can't swim, I hate salt water and I do not want to get my skin burned. However, a part of me was telling me to try, to go on something I have never experienced before. Well, I will try everything once, if I like it I will do it again. I decided to go.

I spent about RM450 for everything. I met two new friends, Joe and Nana. Things were kinda awkward with them at first because they were both related to Izzul and they knew each other for a very long time already, I just met them like 2 hours? However, it is impressing how fast all of us got along.

I slept all they way from KL to Terengganu. So, if you ask me 'how was the journey?', I may not know how to answer it. I felt like sleeping for 10 minutes and the next minute I was at Terengganu already.

First, we went to Joe's house in Losong, Terengganu. I have never been to Terengganu before if I wasn't mistaken. We arrived at 6am and we went straight to a stall to have nasi lemak. Unfortunately, all nasi lemak were all sold out. I was like, damn these people had their breakfast sooo early! We had Nasi Kuning instead and it was good.


On the first day, we went to sight-seeing at Kuala Terengganu. It is a very calm place at the first sight, like the whole thing is so different compared to the place I came from. 

Shortly after that, we went to Pantai Teluk Ketapang. We had a tea time at a restaurant where everybody calls it Sotong Celup Tepung. It was so crowded with people, I don't know maybe because of the variety of cheap seafood like squids, crabs, prawns and fishes. 

We were spending the night at Joe's place. His family was very welcoming. They pampered us with good foods, good foods and good foods. I couldn't be more thankful for all of it.

I woke up late and got scolded by Izzul. We had a quick breakfast. We thanked Joe's family for everything, they were being really nice to us. It took us about 40 minutes to arrive at Merang. Parked the car. Headed to jetty. Waited for the ferry.

I was so excited at this moment. It has been a while since the last ferry I took, which is in Penang, 10 years ago! 

This is my escaping-reality-for-awhile photo and I like it sooo much.

After about 40 minutes, we were so close to the island. The water just turned from dark blue to turquoise. We arrived at the beautiful Redang Island. Don't tell anyone, this is my first time of experiencing crystal-clear water and turqoise color sea shore island. I waited months for this!

What is this place! We checked in the room to put all the bags. I felt sleepy but since the resort management decided to cut off the electricity during daytime, I better go out.

Ok let's move on to the next picture..

This is my savior here. I'm not a good swimmer. Oh wait, I can't swim at all actually. There were so many times I felt death is a step closer without a life jacket on!

We went to snorkeling after that. The place is called Marine Park. It's like a whole different world to me since I have never been snorkeling before.

There were sooo many sea creatures down there!

Izzul was like a fucking mermaid I hate him. He was like flying here and there effortlessly and I hate him even more. I was like, is he an Aquaman or what? 

Then, I went out of the sea. I felt so dizzy like I was about to vomit my stomach out. Then, I realized that I got seasick. Wow, it was my first seasick ever! And I'm sooo happy that I got seasick! I didn't take photos that night because my phone ran out of battery life. We were having dinner, laughing, feeling tired and sleeping. It was a very good first day, hmm not bad for a first day since most of my first days in life are just a series of total turn-offs.


I woke up with a bad news. Joe's leaving us. He got to go to work at Penang if I wasn't mistaken. Joe, I know you're reading this - I don't know if we ever meet again, I just want to say thank you sooo much for everything. 

Since Joe's not around and Irfa was busy with her Rescue license, we all got along fine with our ownselves at the island.

This is the view from the highest peak of the island. Yes, we climbed up here to see the panoramic view and I'm so glad we did.

What I like about my island escape is I really feel like it was an escape. It is pretty lonely here, it's like only you and the nature! 

This is one of many normal views at the island. Sometimes, I sat on the beach and thought to myself about life. Then I got fucked up and...


To be honest, I really enjoyed myself being alone at the island. It's very therapeutic I would say. I've said this and I'm about to say it again, it was calming the fuck out of me! 

During the night, all of us went to the jetty to get some line connections! It was really really dark, I can't even capture any photo that night. It's saddening because the best part of this journey happened tonight! We were lying down, turning on some Coldplays, stargazing everything in the sky *damn the sky by the beach was motherfucking majestic! It's like it has been photoshopped or something! Then, Irfa, Izzul and Nana were singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY song, I was like, siapa punya birthday? They were looking at me, eh mine next week la! Then I found out it was a pre-birthday celebration! They were scattering A LOT of green and yellow glow-in-the-dark powder along the jetty! How I wished I could capture the moment, I was almost in tears because it was absolutely one of the the best birthdays I have ever had in my life! Then, I realized that I'm so glad I didn't stand any chance to take photos or videos because it is something that I should keep in my heart. 

It's getting late. We were tired but before we went to sleep, we promised to ourselves to get up early next morning to take one last swim in the island. But guess what? We still woke up late! By the time I woke up, the ferry was already there in the jetty to fetch all of us up! A bit disappointed because time flies tremendously fast when you are happy. Nevermind, I had fun for the past few days, a fun that I have never felt before. 

And that's how my journey ended. It has been a year now but everything is still fresh in my mind. Probably the most exciting escape I have ever had. Enjoying every bit of life with beautiful people in a very beautiful place, I couldn't ask for more. Of course I'm looking forward to the next island escape!

Hi. I just finished my industrial training in PETRONAS last few weeks. Yeah, I kinda miss the place right now, seriously. Time flies like really really really fast. Damn, the first time I wrote this blog is when I was about to sit for SPM and now I am done with my degree already!

OK, cut the crap. Let me get this shit straight. I saw a lot of friends who have been busy preparing themselves for internship/practical training/industrial training. You might agree or disagree with what I'm about to say but I don't really care,period. Ain't nobody got time to be a hero or a fucking saint here, my advises are free, take it or leave it. Based on my five-months experience and observation, I have studied about what you should and shouldn't do.

Let's just start what you should do

Greet your colleagues with "Hi, good morning!" 
You should try to greet all of the staffs with a simple good morning, every single day. It is a very good starting for the day, seriously. I have tried it and it worked really well. Trust me, they will greet you back and if you're lucky, you will get a wink! Remember, it has to be you who started it first. 

Be nice to everyone.
As cliche' as it sounds, it is dropdead important for you to be as friendly as you can with all the staffs, including the tea ladies and the cleaners. Get bubbly a bit, smile a lot. Who knows your smile could light up someone's day. Besides, it is important for you to build your own networking starting from your internship days, so, be nice! 

Never say never to any task given.
You will encounter shitloads of new things in life, including tasks that you never knew about. You will be like, "Apa benda ni sial?" Do not say no to every task you have been assigned for. Be a Yesman for once in your life. Be it making 1 billion dollar business deal proposal or scanning your boss's MC, shut up and just do it. If it is way difficult, it is better to take your time and ask for guidance. 

What about the things you should not do?

Cocky son of a bitch
We all know that you are in top-rated sector such as oil & gas companies or banking institutions. We all know you are proud of yourself got accepted there. It's like, who doesn't? Good for you. But, being too proud of yourself is a bit nonsense. Checking in and out every single morning, telling the universe how lucky you are when your big boss is treating you nasi goreng, updating your Day 1, 2, 3 publicly like fuck, your university provide you an internship daily journal, update it there! Remember, you are just an intern, a fucking underpaid temporary staff!

Yenta is a Hebrew word for suka semak hal orang. Politics in workplace is a common thing where backstabbing, condemning and provoking take their places. Don't ever involve yourself in whatever conflicts and issues that happened between two or more parties. It's better for you to take no side. Sometimes, they just want to let it out and it's good if you can be a good listener for once.You just got there, you don't even know those people entirely. So, it's better if you be a neutralist.

Tweet, tweet &  tweet
To me, the stupidest act I have ever seen would be tweeting mad shits about whatever that is related to your job and company. That is just way too low life, man. I mean, you're like 23, 24 something and that's the way you address your dissatisfaction? By tweeting? Don't maki your boss kat twitter over internal matter.. pegi cari kawan, lepak mamak, then bitch about your boss sampai pagi. Don't tweet. Kenapa nak suruh semua orang tahu? 

That's all from me, people. I hope I can share a lot of other tips but unfortunately five months is a very very very short period. If you have any other tips to share, please drop it on the comment section below this post, so everyone could benefit from it as well. To those interns, all the best in undergoing your internship days!
