So, we went to Krabi last Christmas. This is our 99th plan to Krabi but all our 1st -98th plans, went straight to drain.
I'd like to warn you, don't refer to my blog if you're looking for BKM and tips to Krabi. This post is only for personal read and mostly about food, else you'll curse us for the rest of your trip. (Like we did).
We departed from Kulim at 430am and reached Aonang at 5pm. 13 hours journey? Yes, as we stopped for more than 10 times; for toilet, breakfast, lunch, toilet again, prayers, makan saja2, toilet again, etc etc.
Activities in Krabi? We just went for island hopping. And massage!!!! Please pamper yourself there. Do whatever you want, pedicure, manicure, body scrub, foot scrub, massage, scrub again, massage again. Haha. As we have to kids with us, i let Kasyfi to go first. They have masseur for men, don't worry. And my session is after dinner, after i put my kids (and husband) to bed. The time different in Thailand is 1 hour late, so their shop lots and massage centre closed at 1am Malaysia time. Oh ya, some of the massage center here is baby friendly, you can bring them with you while you pamper yourself. I did bring Ayra during my manicure pedicure session.
What to eat? Of course we're looking for the best thai food in the world. Butttttttttttttt some of it was belowwwww expectation. The famous Lemon restaurant, would be the worst restaurant ever. Key learning, don't trust the blog. Including mine. lol
In Krabi, the best food is from the warung2 and stall at the sidewalk. For breakfast, please try their porridge, Laksa Siam, and Nasi Belacan. Ohmaiiiiiigod, super duper marvelous!!! I even ate 3 of these in 1 breakfast, knowing i couldn't find these back in Malaysia. Sedappnya laaa hai!
Of course, what else to try in Thailand other than their significant TomYam. The best ever Tomyam that we ate was on the way back to Hatyai from Krabi. There was a restaurant at the roadside, attached to Petrol Station, with Malaysia and Thai's flag at their header. Their Nasi Ayam, Nasi Goreng Tomyam, Tomyam Ayam, are superb!!! I feel like crying when writing this as i miss the tomyam so much! Up until now, we couldn't find any tomyam in Malaysia that has similar taste to theirs. Not even close! None.
What else to eat? Oh, the famous Yamena pancake! My personal favorite would be banana cheese, and i regret for ordering only one!!!! Hers is the crispiest and buttery pancake compared to other stall. So, we went looking for her stall on the next day, but she was gone. Berkali2 pusing carik tp x jumpa. Whyyyyy aunty, where did you hide??? :(
Other than that, you guys must eat their, Kerabu Sotong, Nasi Goreng Green Curry, Nasi Goreng Seafood, Mango sticky rice, churros in Hatyai night market, pulut ayam in Danok, and the ripe pineapples along the highway, fresh fruits and juices, fried papaya with salad sauce etc etc. Try it all, everything is worth it!
We stopped by at HomePro and Tesco during our trip back. Homepro Thailand is cheaper and smaller Ikea version, and we went to Tesco for groceries shopping. Giant squids is only MYR 6 per kilo hoi! Bring cooler box next time okay?
