As the date for the trip was getting nearer, I was informed by Jason that there were more slots available for this trip. So, after thinking for some time, I hurried to get the necessary bank procedures done and rushed home to book my airtickets. In the lapse of 5 hours, I was a confirmed angler for this trip together with Jason, Kelvin, Darren-Y and Darren-C.
Our little pickup truck. Trust me this old junk aint a junk ! Anyway, its our luggage and equipment's ride :)
Right after that, we were chauffered to the Hotel Pantai Gapura to meet up with Wiwied, our organizer and guide for this trip and check into our rooms. Once everyone was done with their luggage, we were brought to this BBQ seafood restaurant Apong, supposingly to be one of the best in Makassar town.

What impress us the most was this hotel have their own jetty and we'll be boarding the boat at the hotel's jetty itself at 2.am ! This could buy us more time to cat nap as by the time we reached the hotel, it was already 11pm !
