Pulau Kapas is a small tropical Island just 6Km offshore the small town of Marang at the east coast of Malaysia. It is an protected Marine park with a few rather small and quiet resorts.
I build a raised platform bed. I always wanted to do that.
We turned into part time hunt and gatherers. Apart from our food and water that we brought with us on the island, we had to find more if we wanted to stay any length of time. We brought about 6Kg's of rice, 1 Kg of nuts, about 2Kg of fresh veggies some oil and spices. We had to ration our food a lot in Kuala Koh National Park, this time we wanted lots of food and delicious too.
Coconuts that look like on the pictures, the ones with a new sprout already growing out of the shell are by far the best and most delicious ones. There are filled with about half a liter of sweet coconut water, lots of coconut flesh, easily enough food for one person for one day and on top of all a sort of watery coconut "cake" like treat. Absolutely fantastic!
We build another raft. Entirely build with driftwood that we found lying around along the beaches, almost all of which is bamboo. Jungle vine and rope we found among all the other garbage washed ashore holding everything together and palm leaves make it more comfortable.
