Woke up early in the morning and got prepared for our journey to somewhere up to the hill.
Uncle stopped by Tamparuli Town for breakfast. We had taken our breakfast before that, so 6 of us ordered only 3 plates and we shared it together.
Tamparuli mee, i likey :)
Before we left, uncle bought us some fried banana/pisang goreng. He kept saying that was nice so we waite the kak to fry for us. The banana tasted kinda sweet and it's kinda different from what we normally take it here.
After about 1+ hours, we reached Pekan Nabalu, a small town nearby somewhere? Agh, i don't know.
This place was beautiful, we captured beautiful scenery and we saw people filming over there. Even if they're superstar, i don't even know & i'm not interested also. Heees :)
There have a lot of stalls selling handicrafts, souvenirs,fruits, etc. We bought our "I love KK" shirt over there. Uncle remind us to bargain with the sellers, else, they will "chop" us like what they did to those foreigners. So, we out our shirt for RM18 :) The cheapest that we can get.
Oh ya, I'm not a fans of pineapple, but the pineapple selling there was so SWEET! i like it, and it only costs you RM2 for 1 whole pineapple.so cheap right?
After this, we sat for another 1+ hour to reach Poring! It's a well-known place for hot spring, but before that, we went for our lunch and headed to the butterfly farm & the canopy walk also.
Lunch! Not bad, and it's included in our RM350 package :)
I skip the butterfly farm's part because i think nothing so special. I saw a lot of butterfly, that's it.
We went for the canopy walk. I forgotten how much we paid for both(butterfly farm & canopy walk). Maybe RM5?
Jungle-trekked for quite a distance before we went for the canopy walk.
I sweat like hell as i thought we're going to Kundasang, it must be cold, so i wore long sleeves, and the worst part is, i wore mini skirt for jungle-trek! Haha. I should have take the short pants with me :(
Finally we reached the 1st canopy! :D I was a lil scared because i'm afraid of height.Okay, frankly, not really that high lah, i'm just purely afraid :(
There's a few canopy that we walked through, and when we came down from the canopy walkway, it started to rain heavily! We were all WET, from top to bottom, and to inner part. Grrrrr.
So, we decided to went for hot spring directly,we went for the private pool instead of the public one, costs only RM15 per room.
We went to see The Biggest Flower, Rafflesia. As what i know, this flower smells like dead body but when we went, we didn't smell anything, probably because that's the 2nd day of blooming. Fyi, they only bloom for maximum a week.
Not forgetting, you have to PAY to see this. and it's not cheap, roughly RM10 per person, and we only stayed for like a minute, snap pics, then left.
Continued our journey to Kundasang! We arrived at 5pm and the milk factory was closed :(( Yet, still can see some of the cows there. The weather was so cold, something like Genting!
This is a very nice place to visit, but unfortunately, we didnt manage to see the KK mountain's view from here and the big wide field. It looks something like New Zealand, i didn't cheat alright? It's true.
I was forced to take out my cardigan to take picture. So freaking cold!
We are cute right?
Bumped into our dinner around 6+pm. Steamboat. =*
This is a long post, i know right? Thanks for reading :)
Mr Douglas Kang
He's my photographer, my very personal-owned-photographer.
Since i lost my babyG12, he promised he will fill up my picture's album bits by bits.
Now, no matter where we go, he'll automatically carry his DSLR with him.
I wish to capture a minute part of reality, to keep it memorable.
Since I'm free now so i decided to write a little about my Sabah Trip.
Probably a long one i guess.
Six of us went to Sabah on 4th October 2011! We took the 2nd earliest flight,which is 750am from LCCT to KKIA. Gonna credits to the boyfie because he purposely woke up early, then came all the way from cyber to fetch to the airport, thanks love ♥
I was so sleepy but i just couldn't sleep on the flight, as you know, the seats are kinda small & i don't feel comfortable at all but still, everything was fine!
Checked in to our lodge right after. The price was kinda cheap since it was those backpackers hotel & most importanty, it was CLEAN! You have to share the bathroom with others but trust me, it's very clean. and the staffs were very friendly, super friendly :D
Lunch-生肉面(we used to call it pork meat noodle in west m'sia) RM6-RM6.50
After our lunch, we visited Sabah Museum since we had some free time before we headed to our 1st destination. You know, museum is always not the place that we, teenagers go. Agree?
The entrance fee is RM2 for malaysian but if you show your student card, it's FREE! that's what we called student's privileges. hehe.
The museum was undergoing some renovation so most of the part was closed!
The museum consists of indoor & outdoor. The outdoor one is so much interesting compare to the indoor.
We get to visit different kind of the bumiputera houses like long house etc. I'd been to Sarawak for once, so i visited this kind of cultural village before. Not bad either, you can see a lot of difference races house like Bajau, Kadazan, etc etc that we used to read in Geography/History last time.
Here comes our 1st destination that we had been planned to go! Klias river & Fireflies.
it took about 2 hours to reach the jetty in Weston. I was trying so hard to sleep & i failed :(
Never mind, we all were so excited once we reached the jetty.
Our tea break, free :)
Was ready to go off watching probosics monkeys! :) It's only available in east m'sia.
Here we comeeeeee! i remembered i said something funny, i said i was imagining the boat will crack, then sink, then there's lot crocodile down there, how? HAHA!
Spot the monkey. Can you see they have a sharp nose & with a long tail? The people told us their tail is to balance themselves on the tree. We saw a lot, how lucky :)
Part of Klias river's view. So sad that we couldn't manage to see the beautiful sunset because the clouds had blocked the sun :(
We had our dinner at the place showing down here. It's in the middle of the river, how odd. Food was quite nice and yea, this is all included in the package that we bought. If i'm not mistaken, it about RM160-RM180 per person.
The sky was soooo dark after 6pm. Sabah sunset is on 6pm, so not used to it. After our dinner, we went to watch FIREFLIES! tell you, it's sooooooooooo beautiful & nice.
They will stick on certain trees & the tree looks like a christmas tree as it's keep blinking!
Can you imagine that, i bet you do.
We went back around 8pm & traveled all the way back to KK town.
1st day was indeed tiring so i fall asleep very soon.
Update more soon.
Happy Deepavali to all my Indians friend.
It took me a while to think about this, and yeah, i realized my happiest moment was the time at home-ipoh :)
I'm a student living far from home for studies. I have to try my very best to adopt myself in a new environment, being independent and most importantly, take care of myself very well.
Home is always the best place for me. You know why?
Simply because nothing best than lying on your lovely bed, sitting on the sofa watching movie, chit-chatting with your siblings, tasting homemade dishes made by mommy, doing whatever like a boss at home ain't? There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort, don't you agree? I love my family
They are always my precious ones.
They are irreplaceable.
They love me, and so do i ♥
