“Honeymooning” in Malaysia

Tioman Island, Malaysia. My friend and longtime travel partner Maddy (sometimes called Fireball here) will soon be betrothed to a wonderful man. Reflecting on her upcoming nuptials, I was reminded of a “honeymoon” that Maddy, her mother Lilly, and I took in the spring of 2014. We were visiting Lilly while she was on location in Malaysia shooting the first season of the Netflix series Marco Polo. After we had exhausted the tourist attractions around the movie studio (namely, Legoland and a Hello Kitty theme park) Lilly took us on an adventure to Tioman, a mysterious dragon-shaped island in the South China sea. We joined the honeymooning set at the Japamala resort where we amused ourselves by photographing monkeys, playing cards, eating heaps of mango sticky rice, and flopping about in a sea as warm and calm as a bath. Here are some photos from that memorable trip:
