Rock Climbing in Krabi,Thailand (Ao Nang, Tonsai, Railey, Phra-Nang Beach & Poda Island)


Sawadeeka!
Yes as you read it above, rock climbing in Krabi!
A whole week of nothing but climbing and eating on the beautiful beaches of AoNang in Krabi.
Sun, sand, sea AND ROCKS! What more could you ask for?
Gonna make this post quick and simple for you guys.


  A few weeks ago,
Roy and I flew to Krabi to meet up with the team.The flight was a pain but it was worth going through all that sh*t. Landed safely in Krabi and the place where we stayed has provided us a pick-up transfer back to the villa. Had to thank Max and the gang for arranging the accommodations.

After settling down in the hotel, we immediately head out for some sight seeing and wall hunting.
Took a long boat from Ao Nang to Tonsai beach on the first day. Our mission was to get a guidebook for ourselves so we could get around without a guide.



Arrived at Basecamp Tonsai to do some quick window shopping and also to get our guidebook.
The book cost 800baht (Rm80) and it has all the information bout climbing to Deep Water Solo (DWS) in Thailand and Laos. Definitely worth it!

Hiking through a small jungle to get to Railey Beach.




One-Two-Three Wall in Railey Beach


Dinner time in Ao Nang after a long hot day of climbing.
Tom yam and Green Curry everyday!

The next day, we got up early so we could go climb in Tonsai before it gets packed.
Food hunting in Ao Nang is madness. Too much too pick and everything was just too good.

Quick breakfast nearby the jetty






Breakfast in Tonsai before heading off to Phra-Nang.



They call this the Cave of Love.



Lead climbing on an easy wall before the day got really hot and sunny.
Love how Phra-Nang beach has nice walls to climb but most of them were quiet hard.
Ranging from 6c - 8b+.

After days of climbing, its off for a day of Deep Water Solo-ing (DWS) in Poda Island!
Something we were all waiting for.

Picking out our shoes before heading out to the sea.

Can you spot me?



Last photo of me before ending this post!

Already missing Krabi and I really can't wait to go back again for another climbing trip.
Definitely an experience not to be missed. Beaches as beautiful as the ones you see in the tv and people are so friendly. Food is just to die for! Tom Yam Goong, Green Curry..Mouthwatering!
 Did I mention the banana Nutella pancakes and coconut shakes?
Its a must try when you get to Krabi.

Here are some of the info I'd like to share for those going to Krabi :

If you are planning to go climbing, my best suggestion would be to stay in Ao Nang.
You can choose to stay in Tonsai and Railey but it will be slightly more expensive to spend there but definitely closer to the walls. You can take a boat from Ao Nang to Tonsai, Railey and every other beach. It cost us each 100baht (Rm10) for a boat ride so be prepared to pay for boat rides everyday. Be prepared for A LOT of hiking and trekking as most of the walls in Tonsai are quite hidden. Bring a waterproof bag and lots of sunscreen. 

7th Edition Rock Climbing Guidebook by Elke Schmitz - 800baht (RM80)

Grab this book from Basecamp Tonsai. This will save you a lot of trouble and money.
Very informative book and if you're lucky, you might also get to meet the author of the book at the basecamp. Very friendly German lady who speaks fluent Thai. Ask all everything you need to know before heading out to climb. Oh and another thing, do get their Thaitanium Project  tshirt. Its a contribution to their Titanium Bolting project for the walls in Krabi. 

As for the Deep Water Solo (DWS), it cost each of us 700baht (RM70). Plan you DWS trip with Basecamp Tonsai. Much more worth it. Just purely 5 - 6 hours of climbing and also lunch will be provided as well. It will be at Poda Island.

Oscar Villa 

A little hidden somewhere in Ao Nang but very nice place to stay.
Very friendly staff and good service provided while I was staying there.
Comfy, cozy villa just right by their infinite pool and its very quiet and peaceful away from town.
Talk to Sand or Wanna if you need any information or anything. They are VERY helpful and very down to earth. 
Love how it feels like home staying at Oscar Villa. Everyone is like family.

DIY : Cropped Tank Top

Cropped Top - DIY Inner Blue Top - F.O.S Ripped Denim Shorts - Miss OCD Tribal Necklace - Red City, Centre Point
Here's another DIY done by Yours Truly!

I've made all these from really BIG tshirts I found in my closet. Since I'm not gonna wear em' so why not reconstruct the shirts into something else.
Here are the steps to making your very own Cropped Tank Top!
Supplies that you need :
Big Tshirts and Scissors

Step One : Cut off the sleeves. Cut at least 1cm away from the seams.
Step Two : Cut the collar part off. Then try on the shirt!  If the sleeves are too thick cut it again til the sleeves becomes slightly thinner.
Step Three : Cut off the bottom hems off and pull the fabric on all the part that you cut till it loosens and rolls up.
Then..YOU'RE DONE! This is how mine turned out.
Really simple right?

Here's another step to make another different style for your cropped tank top!

Coral Flyer Island to Island Zipline, Pulau Sapi, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

***Updated***

Hey hey hey! Guess what?
I just had the most awesome-mess time at the Coral Flyer!
WORLD'S LONGEST AND ALSO THE FIRST ISLAND TO ISLAND ZIPLINE
IN MALAYSIA! ONLY IN KOTA KINABALU,SABAH!


2 week ago, a group of 12 bloggers and 3 friends set out on an island trip to try the Coral Flyer.
We gathered at 9am in the jetty in Jesselton Point and the best part was we managed to
convince the guy at the counter for student price tickets!

***Note that boat ride from Mainland - Pulau Sapi are at own cost.***



Kendy decided to join us for this trip!

We took a boat to Pulau Sapi first cause' that's where you get your tickets for the Coral Flyer.
Weather was really sunny that day and we decided to chill at Pulau Sapi before
trying out the Coral Flyer.



See that guy in yellow.. that's Mr.Simon Amos!
The owner of Ropeskills Sdn Bhd, Sabah Indoor Climbing Centre AND also the Coral Flyer.

Everyone had to fill in the waiver form before getting on the flying fox.

Cotton On Malaysia

T.G.I.F y'all! How was everyone's week so far?
Its already October! How times flies! Would like to apologize for disappearing for a while as I have been really busy with work,climbing and also other events.
A few days ago, I was thinking about shopping for bras and shoes somewhere around town but I didn't have the time to do so. Then Elaine suggested I shop online in Cotton On Malaysia. It never came across my mind to shop in Cotton On and I'm a huge fan of Cotton On.

Its really worth shopping with Cotton On online cause' most of the
things you see online they don't sell it here locally. All you have to do is just
sign up and you'll automatically get a 30% discount code to shop with and I kid you
not everything is super cheap! Their sales can go up to 70% and its madness!
Things can go from as low as Rm2.00 and seriously who doesn't love sales?

Product Review : Ronasutra Mineral Makeup

A month ago,
I ordered a bunch of mineral makeups fromRonasutra.
I have been a loyal user of Ronasutra for years now and I really love how their products are good for sensitive skin like mine.
Their price ranges are very affordable.

Back when I first discovered Ronasutra products ,  I was feeling a little skeptical on trying out their products but reading their infos and reviews from blogs and youtubers, I decided to give it a go.  Went on to their website and browsed around and I realized how much this brand has grown. 

This is my favourite category in the whole website. Look at all the different shades and tones they came out with. I'm currently using the one in the shade (04 Honey) which is sold out at the moment.
I just found out about their skincare line and I love the packaging. I am so looking into trying out their skincare products in the future.
I even tried out their blusher before and I really love how well it blends on the skin and how lasting it is on my cheeks. I us…

Product Review : Yves Rocher, Cosmétique Végétale®

Last month, I was given an opportunity to try out Yves Rocher products.
I heard of this brand before but never knew we had one outlet in Suria mall!
I received a box of products to try out!

Love the red ribbon!

Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Toner, Hydra Vegetal 24 Rich Hydrating Cream, Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Cleansing Milk, Sexy Pulp Lash Plumping Mascara,  Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Raspberry Silky Body Lotion and Moment de Bonheur Eau de Parfum.
Yves Rocher produces products which uses natural organic plants. They harvest their own plants and extract the best ingredients from the plants.  Their products are manufactured in their factories in Bretagne, France.
Sexy Pulp Lash Plumping Mascara
I love the brush! Makes it easy to apply on and it gives  that really full look if you want those volumized looking eyelashes!
 Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Raspberry Silky Body Lotion
The lotion smells really nice and fruity!  I love it cause of its non-oily texture. It doesn't have that oily and stick…
