Visited last Christmas 2014 with parents , was thinking where to go and instead of going back to Teowchew .. my parent was thinking why not we just visit somewhere nearby such as Malaysia's border , Hatyai. Dad suggested to drive there and I was like .. its Monsoon season and to avoid floods, we should take a plane there . And totally out of impulse , i bought a 6 days trip to Hatyai.. Thats crazy right "what should i do !!!"
So i decided to plan for a short trip nearby .. Koh Samui ? Huahin? Koh Lipe ? YES KOH LIPE!!!
