“Ayang, tido awal…esok u jugak yang bersiap lambat…pack sume barang siap-siap…” hubby membebel.
I walked up and started to pack my things. Each of us brought one cabin-size luggage. After finished packing, we then off to sleep.
We woke up around and started to load our bags into hubby’s car. I fed Kiki and gave him a goodbye kiss before we off to LCCT. We had to park our car there for 3 days since we have to get there super early in the morning…(plus minus harga sama je dengan cab + charge or bus + lrt return).
After checked in, we headed to Departure area. At the entrance, a staff warned us that we should only carry in less than 7kgs hand luggage. Macam la kitorang tak tau. You know what she did? She hand lifted every bags and with her “brain weight detector”, she able to tell you whether your bag is more or less than 7kgs. Hebat
Waited and waited, at last we got on board. We sat next to each other as per hubby’s seat number. Mana la nak tau, Air Asia skarang dah tak free seating!!! I quickly checked my boarding pass, and sebulat-bulat mata terpegun tengok seat number I BUKAN next to hubby’s!!! Alamak!!! Lucky me, I convinced the guy sebab the guy who supposed to have my seat, willing to swap his seat with me. Sebab kawan-kawan dia pun duduk sebelah my designated seat. So lesson learned, ALWAYS REQUEST FOR YOUR SEAT NUMBER DURING CHECK IN TIME (on available basis je la, kalau tak, kena la bayar masa beli tiket ye…)
With 2 hours flight journey, I spent 1 and half of my time with…sleeping. Hehe. (Ngantuk la awal-awal pagi dah kena bangun). We touched down at Terminal 2 around and straight away walked to the arrival area, looking for someone to put up my name on a card. Chewah! (Ye la, kitorang sewa kereta
Here we go, A VIVA AUTO! Slightly smaller than my Black Crow but yet, faster (sebab lighter la). We loaded our bags in (muat-muat dua beg besar kat blakang tu) and off to our first itinerary,
With a park map in hand, we walked through the journey. Nampak hornbill yang sangat cantik, lay down by the cage, harimau, honey bear, and few other familiar animals. Cuaca agak panas, dengan straw hat dan dress nipis ala Lolita Jepun, I redahkan juak. The good thing about
Jalan ke depan lagi, baru la nampak kelibat proboscis monkey a.k.a monyet belanda (mesti Dutch people tak puas hati
Then kitorang tengok “orang utan” yang sangattttt pandai dan cerdik. They were always ready to be shot in different moves and styles.
Next monkey yang kitorang jumpa, was gibbon. Tak brapa nampak sebab dia duduk dalam celah-celah pokok buluh. Muka putih, bulu hitam. Comel gak! Binatang lain tak tengok or can I say, malas nak tengok? Sebab sama je. Lepas tengok harimau and honey bear (pegi balik akan lalu tempat diorang), kitorang keluar. By this time, dah ramai budak sekolah datang visit Lok Kawi ni. Semua cakap sepatah haram I tak paham. Tapi pakai handphone kelas youuu!
Patu lapar. We tried to find any restaurants with mix rice. Kebetulan jumpa Restoran Sri Keningau. Sedap seh! Everyone was given a small bowl of soup kosong yang sangat sedap! Terkejut jugak ada this kind of extra meal. An "A" rated as well for this special service. The food? Macam masakan semenanjung. I rasa Indon yang masak kot. Tah la…most of women in
After lunch, we went to Petagas War Memorial, just opposite the KKIA Terminal 1 (more or less). There was a monument with names, whom died during Japanese occupation in WW2. They were called “Kinabalu guerilla” who fought the Japanese but unfortunately, they were imprisoned and tortured to death.
Lepas Petagas, we started to look for Atkinson Clock Tower and Signal Hill Observatory. We did turn into the wrong way that consequently lead us to stuck in a quite bad traffic jam, but due to that agenda, we had a chance to see all the backpackers lodges. Oooo kat sini la ek. Banyak gile! Though we had passed by both of the intended places earlier, we had to make another turn to get back to Padang Merdeka before we reached the Signal Hill Observatory. Takde la best sangat…sebab takde la tinggi sangat…ok la.
Then we drove down the hill and stopped by the Atkinson Clock Tower. That place was full of “ulat” who stayed in their car, listening to the
“Mana lagi?” hubby asked me…and I looked in our very own special Tour Cookbook –
“Haah, yang tu la…tapi Masjid Terapung lagi best. Nanti kita cari.” hubby replied accordingly, sebab dia penah datang
So we drove back towards KK town and stopped by at
Sekarang barulah kita boleh check in hotel ye. This hotel was located at 1
Lepas check in, buat “apa yang patut” and siap untuk ke Nexus Resort for sunset viewing. Perjalanan agak jauh dan hari semakin gelap. We passed by the marine area, kampung air, and the rest, gunung-ganang je la. Rumah kat
Sampai kat Nexus, tak bleh masuk. The guard told us it was closed at daily. LAAAA SAPE YANG CAKAP BLEH TENGOK SUNSET KAT SINI NIIIII??? NI YANG NAK MARAH NI!!! "D" rated la camni! Yeah, we can only view the sunset via the hotel. Not even a lorong to sneak in to the beach tau. Punya la kedekut! Nasib baik la sunset tak cantik sebab awan banyak! So we drove out the Nexus Karambunai area, and headed to one big gulf with lovely scenery next to one kampung air, full of maritime vessels/boat/ships. Lagi cantik kat sini! Siap ada orang berkayak macam kena ragging je. Haha!
It was just but the darkness already covered the atmosphere surrounding us. Unlike peninsular, the night and day comes early in
Looking at the menu list, not as variety as what we can get at peninsular. Anyhow, they serve many types of kepah, kerang, siput and oyster. One thing that I had never seen, soft shell crab. Kecik je, tapi mahal nak mampos! RM60 per kilo! One advise, this seafood restaurant is not suitable for packs of two! Nak makan, datang beramai-ramai sebab minimum Kg that allowed to be ordered was half per item. Half kg for crab was like 3pcs. Half kg for prawn was 30pcs. Ha banyak tu kalau nak makan berdua. Dengan ikan lagi. Oyster je boleh amik pcs, sekor RM3, itupun fresh tak masak pape. So kitorang amik udang, ikan and sayur je. More than enough for two of us. Rasa? So-so. "B" rated.
Dalam keadaan yang kenyang, lepas makan, kitorang lepak tepi pantai on the way to hotel. There was a place called Taman Awam apetah. Ramai orang melepak macam tepi Padang Kota kat penang tu. Bercinta, bersembang…nothing to do, we ended up talking to each other tatkala tikus berkeliaran keluar masuk dari bawah longkang di tepian jalanan…jom balik la ayang!
