Things To do in HuaHin : Into the Wild at Kaeng Krachan National Park


fsefsfss



I was determined to visit Kaeng Krachan which is about one and a half hours from HuaHin to check out this untouched National Park and also a border to Myanmar. You can't just visit this place without any tourist guide. So I  hired one private car with a driver to guide me into the jungle.




When I reached the National Park area, I feel thrilled. Fresh traced of Wild Elephant is everywhere. I read before if got lucky or rather unlucky, you can witness live panther roaming around. I don't pray to meet one. I must be crazy to pray for one??? huhuhuhuh


My tour guide brought me into some simple jungle trekking because I told him my disability to go for a harder trekking course due to a day before I was on a difficult hike. Check out my painful hike at Pranburi

I have to take off my shoes to cross the Pranburi River to get to the other side of Kaeng Krachan National Park.



I don't meet many animals here. Just fresh elephant dunk, a glimpse of giant hornbill, shy dusk langur, a snake and some wild insect. I even found another species of Rafflesia here. The rafflesia here is smaller and bright in colour compare to the one I found during my trip to Sabah. Check out my Sabah journey HERE


My first-time encounter with wild wood mushroom is really fascinating too. I end up spending more time in the jungle and totally forgotten that I am in thick jungle with potential prey of wild animals like leopard, elephant, tiger and even bear. My tour guide told me there is a high chance to meet bear here. He even prepares me with some survival skill before went into the jungle. Thank God! no need to use any of those. I think I'd have a genuine heart attack if I meet one of those.



My knee wears out easily that day. So I told him, I wanted to go back to based camp. 


On the way back found some fresh porcupines shit lying around and green snake on the main road. I just spend my time browsing through the nearby wildlife museum before we head to next place which is Kaeng Krachan Dam.


Kaeng Krachan dam is a huge beautiful damn. It is a good place to walk around and if wanna have a quiet stay, you can rent bungalows and homestay overlooking this beautiful place. I went there on the weekend and many local people have family and friends picnic and camping activities there.

I was looking forward to check out the longest suspension bridge but was told this place has poor maintenance and not safe to walk on. Monkeys are the only visitor to cross over this bridge which connects between the mainland and one little Island in the middle of the reservoir to get some food.


I end up have some fried fish with some rice at one of the local restaurants with a fantastic view overlooking this beautiful dam for lunch. So peaceful and relaxing here. After lunch , I just walk around and enjoy the blissful view in front of me while waiting for my boatman who will bring me to cross over this huge damn to a place call Monkey Island.



My boatman was accompanied by one small kid who is more excited than me to feed the monkey. They came with 2 full bags of cut banana to feed the monkeys.


It was an awesome view to feed the monkey or should I write it here, I just watch others fed the monkey. I don't wanna touch those slime bananas with my hand. hahahaah Princess syndrome!

Watch my video below to get an awesome view on what is happening on Monkey Island.

Different between Rebonding and Keratin Treatment

Frizzy Hair Solution Naturally, I born wavy and wild frizzy hair. I hate that frizzy hair style. It make me look untidy and less attractive. WTH! Don't throw up please!!!! The only solution to my knowledge all this while is rebonding hair treatment. I have been doing this almost every year. I am worried about getting my hair ironed every year. Gosh! I am not getting anymore younger so does my hair. How long this poor hair of mine can stand that heavy chemical treatment coated on and flat iron it with the heat straightening iron. Even my neck almost drop putting up with the long hours procedures. I was invited to try out Keratin Treatment at A Cut Above. I am glad to finally try this out. I love the end result very much and the process is simple than rebonding. Like I said earlier my desire result is to tame my untidy frizzy hair. Not really about straightening the hair. So which one to choose? Rebonding or Keratin? Hair Rebonding * Suitable for those who have ve

Acupuncture Treatment at Tung Shin Hospital

My Plantar Fasciitis getting bad after return down to KL from Genting short weekend getaway recently. I guess my backpack load too heavy and stress up my heel so much. For those who don't know what is Plantar Fasciitis, I will give you some brief about this. Who knows it may hit you too once you aging like me...hehehe. Anyway, its good to know. Plantar Fasciitis is common pain for middle-aged people. WTH! can't believe I aged this quickly. Young people don't so happy! If you on your feet a lot and do lots of sports, this can hit you too.This pain caused by straining the ligament that supports your arch.  I got mine last year after came back from Taiwan trip in April 2016. I got diagnosed with knee problem in June 2016. So literally tackle my pain one by one. I concentrate on my knee healing and ignore the pain on my feet. Recently the pain on bottom of my heel getting unbearable. Every step with lots of pain and really wish can swallow pain killers or I kill people

How to Buy the Right Bra ?

Warning! This post is all about 'boobies'. If you have an allergy to 'boobies', please do not read this post. Don't blame me for not warning you. Read at your own risk. 😝 I really love shopping. Who doesn't? My most favourite shopping items are clothing and beauty care. There is one thing will give me an eerie and heavy heart if you even give me free shopping money for this item. Bra! For such a small item of clothing, bras are the hardest task for me.  First of all, I have bad experience shop for my own bra a long time ago. My perception, the salesperson who man the bra section mostly aunties who just care about the commission. Unlucky me always met the sales person who will criticize my 'poor boobies'. I have experienced one salesperson scoop up my 'boobies' just to check on my size. WTH! Super rude! I was taken aback at that time. Immediately made a 'U-turn' and never return. I was so puzzled and confused at that time. Why sh
