And finally we're on the jetty. A look back...
Only to realise that the 12.30pm boat we're chasing have left... 15 minutes early than the scheduled time. While the next boat should arrive at 3.30pm, so they say!
So how? We have a few other places to stop at in Muar some 25km away while we intend to head back to Kuala Lumpur before dusk. What if it's true the next boat would only be available at 3.30pm? Should we wait here and cross our fingers or should we go back to the more interesting parts of the island at least to kill time? What if we head there only to find the boat coming back to jetty out of schedule again?
Thank God, some 15 minutes later the boat appeared. As it turned out, the number of passengers then was quite high... after all it was a weekend. So the boat after picking up a full-load decided to leave earlier for the mainland. From the mainland it ferried another full-load of passengers before me, Shamsul and some waiting passengers could get onboard.
Anyway, what a relief. And here's a picture of Pulau Besar as the boat head towards mainland. Cheers! :]
