Just got back from Redang, was there as the island was closing up – Saturday was actually the last day.
Kim only just got certified at Lang Tengah though, so it wasn’t a proper leisure diving trip as we had to layan the PADI Open Water stuff.
We went down to KT on Wednesday night, stayed in some shiteous hotel called Hotel Indah (never gonna stay there again) and headed over to the island on Thursday morning.
We even got a beautiful sunset on the way there.
Redang was awesome, the weather was flawless – sunny and blue skies all the way. It held off with the rain until we were eating dinner on the last night, which was fine – it cooled us down just nice.
The visibility was good, we saw a bunch of cool stuff and had a right laugh (1 crate of Carlsberg, 1 create of Tiger and 1 bottle of Absolut…).
The food was SO much better than Lang Tengah too (thankfully). Will do a diet update in the next couple of days, not so much to report tho as didn’t have a whole lot of choice on the island (carbs galore!).
Sadly there was a tragedy on the way back from the island, we’d already left much earlier as we had to attend a wedding in KL that Saturday night – so we didn’t see it..
But I’d prefer to remember it as a great holiday, full of sunshine, laughter, great dives and new friendships. Sadly, this isn’t the first diving buddy I’ve lost – but I sure do hope it’s the last.
RIP C, you will be remembered.
