One weekend at Damai

I so don't know how to rest do I? Feeling feverish the past few days. Finally back to normal already. 

Anyway!! These are photos from our recent Damai trip. Always when I come back from Damai and look back at the photos, I wonder why are there soo little photos? Its cos I was so lazy to bring out my phone or camera. Its difficult to have to keep an eye on phone/camera while in the pool or on the beach, right? But this time I was determined to take more photos!!

No complaints this time around! :D

OK, I wanted to write more names but then it won't fit into my iPhone camera screen! So this shall have to do. In reality, there were 11 of us consisting of Cs and I, Boon, SL, Vero, Ying, Benz, Ong and Nana, as well as John and Macy.

I wrote their names down because it was just us there on the beach in the morning.  Later Boon and SL came to join us and we walked all the way to Camp Permai to the jungle pool. It was too hot to swim or go kayaking, so we just went to walk around at Camp Permai.
 Think I over-edited this photo. The colours I mean..

Blur photo but I like. ♥

 From left: Ying, me, Vero and Benz.

The reason we all gathered at Damai one weekend: birthday boy! If you look closely, his face is already a bit pinkish, red. We started drinking in the afternoon. Not me lah cos I didn't lose at card games. The ones who lost the most was probably Nana- she probably had 2 whole glasses of red wine and vodka. And some liqueur.

Vero and I. No make up both of us. Original photo was must worse. Hahha this was after Camera360's magic skin effect.

 I don't need to bring a proper camera out really. All photos taken (and some edited) from my phone! Not bad ah my phone didn't fail me.
 In FB, someone commented on this photo of cs: I believe you can fly. And I replied: My superman. Actually I was referring to the song called Superwoman. Something about the woman doing everything for the man. ".....I'm not your super woman etc..." And all I meant was that Cs is my superman! Cos he does almost everything for me. Geddit? Actually I don't think I'm making much sense.

Oh well. Moving on. Have you noticed I like to use oh well, moving on, and anyway! Hahah plus a lot of exclamation marks!!!!!!!

I wanna wake up to this scene everyday can?

Very happy John. Hahaha in reality he was saying oiiii. As in trying to stop me taking the photo and err probably to stop me posting it here!! Hahha sorry lah! But I thought it was creative!

The towels were quite long..enough for John to do this. Wrap it around his waist, and still enough to cover his back. Though it was lihai but also cos he has a small waist. Cs tried to do it and failed. 

I like Damai Puri's pool..big enough to share. Unlike at Damai Beach. Pool is always full!

Damai was quite crowded that day. Ambank's family day and Shell had something going on there too. Don't know what. Just knew cos the staff told us.

Photo turned out blur. The app I used is Pano Camera. Very easy to use. It stitched together about 7 photos into one. Only the photo should look better than this..

 Boon is determined to imprison Ying in that hole. Needless to say, he failed.

Sunset! Love! Why is it the only time I appreciate the sunset is at the beach? Why don't I notice it everyday? Cos we are busy everyday. Sunset during everyday life equals end of a work day, time to cook/search for dinner and plans for the night. 

 More sunset shots. I am most definitely a sunset person!

Over edited the colours. Now it looks fake but still so pretty.

At night, we went to Damai Central to eat. Very hungry by then. After waiting for everyone to shower, dry and change, it was about 9pm for dinner. Starving max.

Ambank's family day! They had a looong line of buffet and set up a lot of tables. It looks like a carnival really!! Damn a lot of people and their families. Ambank really generous; I wanna go work there too! 

The entrance. Got red carpet some more.

This was at the end of the night. People were leaving already and clearing up. They had no way to keep track of who were Ambank staff or not really. So, we took some fruits on a leftover platter. It was untouched and people were leaving what. Waste not want not.

We put it together with the leftover cake. But in the room, we forgot about it and only noticed the box on the floor (someone must have pushed it off the table or something). Anyway, it doesn't look very appetizing by then. Oh well.

Dinner at Bayridge restaurant. Our meal for 11 people came up to RM 415. I know. Coconut costs RM 6 each. Decide yourself. Wine corkage costs RM 50 (for 2 bottles). Without the corkage for wine and the RM 6 coconuts, dinner was ok..not that pricey.
 Gotta have oyster omelet cos its one of birthday boy's must order food.


Only photo I have of Cs and I so that's why I'm posting it even though I look so....

 Later, Ambank had a fireworks show that lasted 10-15 mins?! Like I said, generous indeed. Thanks Ambank, we got to enjoy them as well. :)

We might as well be Ambank staff. We got the leftover balloons too. With permission ok. Hahaa they were clearing up and should be more than happy to let us take them.

Up, up and away! I have really gotta watch Up (the movie or cartoon from Disney or Pixar). I'm lazy to Google for the correct ones.

I told Cs to jump but instead his head got hidden in the balloons. Hahah at least we tried.I thought it would make a good shot.

Proper shot instead.

And this was how we brought the balloons back to Damai Puri. Nobody stopped us. But we did get a few stares.

Next dilemma was how to get the balloons through that small hotel door?

Just push and push them all through. Surprisingly none of them popped!

Tadah! Now that's a party! Hahaha

Are we lihai or are we lihai?

We played a game where we had to catch the balloons. Whoever got the most wins. Loser drinks of course. Not bad, I won for the girls section.

After that, we all played card and drinking games till we passed out one by one.

Next morning, all the balloons had fallen. Heh heh not a pretty sight. We had to pop all the balloons before check out. 

Calm sea the next morning. So peaceful. So tranquil. We wanted to go kayaking. That is why my alarm was set at 7am but the sea was so calm and peaceful. Hardly any waves at all. Plus we were all lazy and looking for excuses to get out of kayaking, me thinks. So didn't go after all. Boo.

Oh well. We have Gawai holidays coming up.  And yes we have plans already. I really should rest more. No complaints for now. Plans is better than no plans!

Original photo was the first one - two photos above, unedited. This one above was after Instagram. Below one was after Camera 360. I'm addicted to these apps. Can't help editing them to see how they turn out. :D


This is how I try to stay in the same shade of skin. Finally got evidence! Hahah freak!

 Because it was so hot, we all went to check out the gym afterwards. Then went back to the room to shower, pack and leave! 

And that's all for this trip.

 Till next time ~~

Bye Damai!
