Day 2 - Pangkor Island

Did not had a good rest or sleep as I'm awake for the Brazil vs Colombia and Germany vs France World Cup match. Both my fav team is playing so I must watch! First thing I do upon check in hotel is to find its sport channel. Happy that it's available but with very small screen tv! Brazil and Germany won against their opponent so that's mean next match is Brazil vs Germany. 😬
Started my day early, went for morning beach picture session. Snapped tonnes of pic but not all turn out great.

Went back to the hotel for breakfast. Today they serve by set meal choice of English breakfast, noodle soup or fried noodle. Not very tasty and the soup very strong MSG taste.
Comes with 2 half boiled egg, juice, coffee and fruits

Next up, is water activities. Got quote for a boat rounding and snorkeling at Rm150 nearby Pasir Bogak earlier. Went to check out Teluk Nipah quite a lot not open due to puasa month. But we got approach by a Malay guy right after we parked our car. He quoted us Rm50 for rounding around island and snorkeling for many hours as we like.  He even get us some bread in bottle to attract fishes. 😍
Beautiful view

In the middle of the sea....
Lots of hungry fishes
All the beautiful fishes 

We only spent an hour here. The water is clear enough to view the fishes from top. That's the way I snorkel most of the time. Hahaha.... Could not stand the salty sea water. 

Before return back, I insisted to try out kayak. He only charges Rm10/person and we can go rounding for an hour or more. I doubt we will kayak for full one hour as the noon sun is very hot now.
Kayak indeed very fun and challenge your stamina. It's a good watersport and I really enjoyed it. We go around for about 40min if it wasn't for the hot sun I wanna kayak till no more energy. LOL

One more, two more......

Its past noon, after all the energy burn we need foods. Since Daddy's Cafe is nearby we had our lunch here again. I had the Fresh Alu Alu(Rm25) a type of fish grill and serve with vegetable and potatoes. My partner had the Daddy's chicken chop. This time I tried Big Daddy cocktail upon recommendation by the waiter.

Gosh.... My tired face with my Alu Alu fish(Rm26)
Daddy's cocktail (Rm21)
This time tried the chocolate mousse cake(Rm14) which turn out to be a bad choice. Too sticky  and wet not my preference. Still prefer cheese cake!!! 😅

Went back hotel to freshen up and off we  went rounding the island. Drop by to view ship building and Fu Lin Kong temple. Fu Lin Kong has various Buddhist statues inside the temple and many alcoves and ponds around. Visitor will make their wish in this temple because they believe their wish will come true. The unique of Fu Lin Kong is that there is a mini Great Wall of China built beside the temple which reflected the magnificent view of this temple.
Notice the huge ship in the making

Dinner at Ye Lin Restaurant which just next door to the hotel.  Had the steamed sole fish, chili flower crab, fried soft shell crab and Kung pou mantis prawn. Foods here is not good as it's claimed by fellow bloggers. Flower crab is not that fresh and the cooking lack of wok hei. Only soft shell crab stand out! Fish is alright while mantis prawn so so only.

Total bill came up to Rm130++ with a rice and chinese teapot.

Went back hotel with our full tummy and it's the end of day 2 in Pangkor Island.
