Ride to Hat Yai Songkla, Thailand

The trip was held on 1-3 July 2011. Since I never visit Hat Yai before, I'm deciding to join Chor Aidil, Kayrun, Faisal, Ayie, Akib and Farid... The RV point was at Sungai Buloh R&R..  We decided to roll the tyre @ 1200 am.. The route will be KL - Bukit Kayu Hitam - Danok - Hatyai.....

Some Shopping with Akib..

 The next morning, I'm ready again... Today we plan to meet the Mermaid @ Samila Beach, Songkla

 We met this uncle 1st..

Finally.. we found the mermaid...This Golden Mermaid Statue was built in B.E. 2509 in sitting position with bronze by Jitre Buabus (Professor Prakit Buabus, a National Artist in Visual Art (painting) of 2002) with a budget of 60,000 Baht in those period of time from Songkhla Municipality. In following to a Thai mythaical tale which Sa-nga Karnchanakhabhanth told that a mermaid would sat on a beach and combed her hair on the other days. On day a fisherman passed  by that frightened the mermaid and made her escaped into the sea while forgetting her golden comb. So, the fisherman kept the golden comb and often waited for the mermaid at the beach but she had never shown up at all.


Goin back to Hat Yai & find some food.. hungry wei..!!!

The night before we leave Hat Yai.. Yummy..! Pulut Mangga & Teh Tarik Ais Hat Yai.. I really miss both of this...!!

Tea Time @ Changloon.. before riding back to KL..

We start rolling at early morning. It was very heavy rain in Hat Yai.. Journey from Hat Yai to Danok took 2 hourss...  But all of us really enjoy the ride.. The important things we all come back home in 1 piece.. Thanks to Allah..!!
