Long Beach, Pulau Perhentian Kecil

After staying so many days at the calm and relaxing Pulau Perhentian Besar, I am started to feel kind of bored. I wanted to feel the nightlife on an island so I was advised to head to the Pulau Perhentian Kecil. There are two beaches here which are Long Beach and Coral Bay. Right now I am heading to Long Beach by a water taxi which cost me RM25/pax.
The first impression I had when put my first step on this beach my feeling is WOW! Truly different concept! This beach is so much happening. You can rent this big umbrella for your sunbathing. This is something you don't see at Pulau Perhentian Besar definitely!
Now, you need to understand where you are. 
Lots of cafe and restaurants here for you to pick! You will be spoiled with the choices you have here.
There are snorkeling gear for you to rent at RM5 - RM10 depending to the season. But the problem is too many boats along this beach, it is very dangerous for you to snorkel here. My advice is you can head to the jetty which is located in front of Bubu Long Beach, there are much lesser boat there and plenty of fishes to see under the jetty. Awesome!
Do you see the boats here? So many and very dangerous for snorkelers. The sand and the sea here is not as beautiful as Pulau Perhentian Besar because of the number of tourists here are 4 to 5 times more! No joke!
Do not bother about pre-booking your activity here. My advice to you is just come and do your own survey here with so many advertisement board like this along the longest beach in Pulau Perhentian!
Shot trip? Haha...anyway, just want to show you there are so many advertisement board like this which enough to make you spoiled with choices. 
That's what you can do on the day time, let's see the night of Pulau Perhentian Kecil that never sleeps!
Can you see this? Every small table there is a mat (tikar) for you to sit on and you can order your alcohol beverages here. This is a great pleasure sitting by the beach and enjoying your drink with your friends or newly made friends. 
For your information, there are two hangout places that are offering the same tikar concept but the only difference is one of them has this fire swinging performance. It becomes obvious later on when the place with this performance securing the full house status. Great strategy!
It is a simple acrobat show watching him swinging around. There are two performers taking turn to perform. Another performer is a ladyboy. That's the catch. Sorry for no picture.
Anyway, just enjoy the last picture of his action! =)
Apart of drinking, there are spa & reflexology done by the Thais. Very good but the price is quite expensive. Well, the service is way better than I had before. Worth every penny!
Important information about this beach:

You may have already paid for RM90.00 or RM100.00 for a return ticket from Kuala Besut to Pulau Perhentian but on this particular beach, you need to pay extra RM5.00/pax for a sampan ride between this beach to the big boat or vice versa. It is not even a 50m distance but too bad that you are obligated to pay because the big boat cannot get near to the beach or their boat will stuck. So please do not feel being conned if you are required to pay this fee. This is a norm.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5

Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.
