Sabah, Borneo : Part III

 Warning: This is gonna be a long post! Be patient :)

Third day in Sabah, weather was pretty nice, so we went out early in the morning again to have breakfast! This place is kinda famous for 鱼滑面( i think so). As usual, we shared our breakfast together again :)

Headed to Sungai Kiulu for river rafting after our breakfast. I felt utterly excited but at the same time, mood swing because i lost something, i was so careless :(

 We reached the upstream of Sungai Kiulu & get ready for the adventurous rafting acitvities. We took the level 1/level 2, which suits for the beginners like us. Even children can play this level. The uncle told us since this is the most basic one, so we won't get wet bla bla bla, and HE WAS WRONG!! (tell you why later)

Helmet checked, life jacket checked, paddle checked, and so, final briefing before we play. He told us some rules that must be followed. I'm getting so so so excited that time. 1st time ever to play river rafting, woohoo :D

Before we went off, cheeeeeeeese :)

Okay, here comes my nightmare. I'm a non-swimmer, i don't know how to swim. So before that, i had already told my rafter, Sham so that he would take care of me. Everything was good & fine, i felt so excited till our boat being cap-sized.


All of us dropped into the river and i was stuck in the middle of the boat, i don't know how to escape from that, at the time, i really thought i'm going to die soon. I kept struggled until i lift my head up. I floated quite far from the boat and luckily, henry came to save me up. I was like: "Thanks God, he saves my life!" no kidding!!

I was the 1st being pulled up to the boat because the rafter know i can't swim. We thought the rafter purposely pull the boat to make us capsize but he said that was an accidentally. The boat met the swirl, so we dropped off  :(

not only mine, wilson & seewei lost their specs as well :(

Rafter asked us wanna get 2nd try or not, i die die refused!!
i'm so scare even i think of that now.

We tried body rafting when its about the end of the rafting. We jumped into the river, and let the water push us to the downstream. This wasn't fun, i tried, and i'm scared :( but still, a big applause to myself  for doing all that. I hate that uncle, he said this is only the level 1/level 2, i can't imagine how if i go for the level 3/level 4 in Sungai Padas. That is gonna be real challenging. 

Lunch was provided at there, it's all included in our RM350 package.
Back to lodge and i fall asleep till evening while the rest already went out to Philipino market.

Dined at 大茄来海鲜餐厅 where we got the cheapest crab in town. RM18 per kg.
and we ordered "Sabah Vegetables-direct translate",something special lah.
not to forget, the 象蚌 (1st try on this), nice!
Bill: RM11+ for 7 peoples, cheap right?

Went for the musical fountain show at Perdana Park around 8+pm. Not bad either, but i think they shall change some of the songs, kinda old-style already. Hehe :)

Next destination: Tanjung Aru Beach. We went there at night, thanks to Chea Ann (my friend whom studying in UMS) brought us there. There's a few bars there, best place ever to chill i guess.

We stayed till 9+pm then we went off to a night food market. I took nothing for supper but the rest ordered prawns & sotong. I don't really like to eat prawns but when i saw the big big prawns, its simply irresistible :) You just feel like biting on this.

Last destination: B'day celebration for Miss Ho in Waterfront:)
her birthday falls on 7/10 so we gave her a lil surprise.
i excused myself & i went out to buy cakes for her, hope she like it.
We ordered a jar of beer as our companion at that night.

That day was indeed tiring, yet we had heaps of fun.
Stay tune for the final post for Borneo Trip.
Thanks for reading :)
