My Dream in the year of Rabbit

The continuation from the year of Tiger.....

When I try to recall back, I’ve known Egg for almost 14 years! We first meet when we were in the same tuition school but she didn’t know me yet. Then we went to the same secondary school but still, she didn’t know me as we were in different class. Finally in year 2001, we were transferred to the same school for form 6 and she sat behind me. That’s when we start to know each other.
Our love story began after we sat for our STPM examination which is roughly 8 years ago.
For the rest of our love story, you can read it here! :D

Finally, by the mid of last year, I’ve fully furnished my house with all the basic necessities and I continued to save until today for our marriage first quarter of this year. (It was actually planned last year but had to postpone to this year due to the insufficiency of finance)
All these while, people around keep asking when are we going tie the knot? After announcing our wedding, friends and family asked where are we going for honeymoon vacation.
Seriously, going for honeymoon means “spending your money like flowing tap water”.
After spending on our wedding preparation, there’s nothing much left in my bank’s saving account. With my current limited monthly salary and just a puny savings every month, I can hardly bring Egg for honeymoon overseas!

Egg used to ask me, “Where are we going for honeymoon?”
I’d reply, “With my current savings, the furthest I can bring you is KL”
Then she’ll turn away with a sad face and a piggy lips.
However, deep inside my heart, I always wanted to bring Egg to a beach resort for honeymoon. We always preferred a relaxing trip rather than a jam-packed urban trip. (urban = shopping = spending a lot money)

So I tried to squeeze my pocket and see if I can manage something special yet practical for her.

After searching online on the best “budget + beautiful” beaches, I found Krabi, Thailand. One of the most popular “movie shooting” locations in Asia. I continued reading the review of these islands by travellers and I’m so convinced that this is just the right place!
Easy and low cost transportation, 
Budget hotels (as low as 631 Thai baht = RM63),
Cheap night market with DURIANS! (Egg’s favourite) 
and of course, beautiful beaches and islands.

I’ve checked through the Airasia’s website, a round trip for 2 from KL-Krabi only cost around RM 1k!
As for accommodation, it can go as low as RM70 per night in a 3 star hotel with free transfer service!

All in all, RM2K is enough for both of us to enjoy the whole honeymoon trip there.

Let me see how much I have in my current bank savings now..hmm..(Click! Click!)

I have RM2.5k………………….. *Jaw dropped. Meaning to say I’ll left RM500 when I come back after the trip =_=”

Well, if Airasia is willing to sponsor us this wonderful honeymoon trip, I’ll be able to spend / save another RM1k for the trip!

Do you think I deserve to win a pair of free flights to Krabi by Airasia? Please say you do >_< 

Guess what??!!
Airasia really are sponsoring us to Krabi!!! Woo!! Hoo!!!

*Finally I can save some $$ =_="
