Massage sometimes only when I really need it. Massage is cheap. Girls? Hahaha for accommodation I stay at long term place. Cost me 3,500 baht a month. They have budget, mid-range & luxury type. Fun dives depends which dc you go but I think mostly all the same. Big competition here. Too many dc.

Not sure how much is the air ticket from KL to Samui. The only airlines fly there is FireFly. Then from Samui to Koh Tao only travel by ferry. It's 2 hours journey. I always travel budget bus from KL to Hatyai then van from Hatyai to Suratthani and ferry from Suratthani to Koh Tao.

haha....ok now i understand, tqvm bro.... B-)
i should travel from penang by van to hatyai then Hatyai to Suratthani and take ferry from Suratthani to Koh Tao, cheaper......since no flight from penang direct to koh samui......
what about food? muslim food available, what are the percentage of the population there, buddhis or muslim area.....

Food? Hmmm...hard to get halal food. You can always order food with no pork if you don't mind the place but to be honest I haven't found any restaurant that serve no pork. Travel budget always long hours journey. Keep that in mind. Good if you don't have limited time.
