I always like snorkeling. And I had tried underwater photography first time in my life at Mamutik Island. To be able to see those colorful fishes swimming between your legs makes me wanting to take this hobby to another height. Oh ya, I am talking about scuba diving! I am now planning to take PADI Discovery Scuba Diving course in Redang Island in August, join me?
After we had done snorkeling, we got back to our table under the tree on the beach to have lunch. We could not eat a lot because there was another adrenaline surging activity waiting for us in the afternoon. Oh my, I was going to do parasailing for the first time in my life! We paid RM65 per person for that and were told the activity would last half an hour. What is parasailing, you may ask. My comprehension is a simple one; it is sailing with parachute on your back. Cannot get the picture? Then scroll down for the pictures. The tour operator was kind enough to catch these trilling moments using my Casio!
Have you tried parasailing before? Parasailing is not as trilling as riding the roller coaster. Nonetheless, it is still an exciting activity! The most exciting moment is when they lower you down into the sea and lift you up in the sky again. What if the safety belt gets loose and you fall into the sea? However, good moments always do not last long. The parasailing session only lasted for about 10 minutes, very much to my disappointment! I confronted the tour operator and was informed this is their normal practice all the while. It must be the lady at the Jesselton Point’s ticketing counter who gave us the false information, damn! RM65 for a short 10 minutes, what an easy money to make!
As I only booked our return speed boat trip at 1600, we had plenty of time touring Mamutik Island. But first of all, I needed to take a short nap! Snorkeling is a tiring activity, alright!
Touring an island the size of a football field ain’t difficult at all. I like to observe people’s activities on the beach. This may sound weird to you. But I am from inland. And we do not have beach over here. It is during my rare beach holiday that I can smell the scent of sea breeze and observe what people are doing on the beach. During my walk along the beach on Mamutik, I saw children building sand castles. Do you like to build sand castles on the beach? I would like to but never really get a chance. I promise I am going to build one at Redang this August, wonder if I am too old for that!
I also took some really nice scenery photos of Mamutik. At 1600, our speed boat came. We bided farewell to the corals and fishes at Mamutik and headed back to Jesselton Point. What a great day out in the sea, sand and sun!
On Mamutik, I had pledged myself 2 goals to accomplish this year, which are to take PADI Discovery Scuba Diving course and build sand castles at Redang in August.
