Family trip to Kundasang, Ranau.

So I've been abandoning my blog again huh? Yea, I am. I'm enjoying my own sweet time at home, wasting every moment with deep sleep before I'm going back to my crazy working life. I went out shopping also, which I claim as my own self reward. But I guess that is not really accurate because I shop all the time HAHA.

And I also went out of the house tagging my big families for a short trip to Kundasang and Ranau. My aunt actually planned this. She wanted to bring her kids for a short trip. And as usual, all of us automatically joined the trip HAHA and I was the driver of course. My other half drove my car back to his home because I was away to Sibu, he was so annoying he didn't want to use taxi, he said he had too many stuff this time *sigh*. So for this trip, I drove my aunt's MPV, considering my 7 passengers wtf.

Kinabalu Park. Actually we didn't go inside. We arrived late due to some reasons and of course because my driving skill is really poor wtf. I stopped by and told the kids to take pictures as proof that we were here HAHAHA.

My other half is originally from Ranau (his home to Kundasang only takes 20 minutes I guess), so I asked him to book rooms first. He booked deluxe room at Pine Resort Kundasang. For my standard, it's worth the money. It's clean and comfortable. The surrounding is very pretty too. But I would choose to eat outside for breakfast. Not really a problem actually, it was just because the choices are limited.

It was heavy rain the night before, so the next morning was realllllyyyy cold. I don't really expect this weather because last time I came, it doesn't really cold and I brought thin clothes!!! Serve me right. It was too cold that I woke up at 4.30 am and can't sleep *sigh*. However, it was breathtaking seeing Kinabalu Mount in the morning. See my cousins? HAHAHA all wrapped like durian crepe. At 6.30 am I was, 'wake up! You guys said want to see Kinabalu Mount right? There!' And my other half was like, 'sigh this girl, what's so special about it?' HAHAHAHA okay lah you see it for the whole of your life but please be understanding for us.

Waiting for checkout.
Kundasang's weather makes me feel like I'm extra pretty HAHAHA

Since it was really a short trip, we don't bother to bring the kids to Poring Hotspring. The chances of kids don't want to go back after having fun is sky high. We chose not to take the risk HAHAHA. Then we head to a known natural fish spa, Luanti.

My second time to Luanti and I'm still afraid of the fishes HAHAHA. They're so big I feel like they can bite my feet until my knees wtf.

Look at my annoying face wtf. Mum was so busy trying to catch fishes for no reason.

The tour guide, my other half. He was like, 'come here. Those big ones are useless. They only cuddle your feet. These small ones actually give you real spa.' And I was, 'what? They bite? NOOOOO!!' HAHAHA

Fishes all gone from our side because people next to us bring food for them wtf.

Ungrateful fishes after ate all food from us then you guys ran away. 

Then we head to Desa Cattle Farm at Mesilau, Kundasang. I heard so many stories from my friends. They all said the place is soooo beautiful. But they forgot to tell me how risky the steep hills. I was so thankful that I asked my other half to drive. I would cause unpleasant memories if I am the driver. One friendly reminder from me if you wish to go there, make sure your brake functioning excellently especially if you drive automatic car.

So yeah, I took nice pic of you. Now, your turn to take mine.

You think this nice huh??

Next attempt. He said I'm too short to snap the peak view wtf

 On me ; Top and pant : Roxy
Sandal : local store

And our only pic together taken by my aunt. I'm soooo makcik-makcik right? HAHAHAHA. He said I look like I'm losing weight but why do I feel like I'm gaining weight? I'm trusting my own instinct because I know what I eat.

I love trip like this. Trip of lots people and lots sweet memories.

leaving footprints

Since kid, I always dream of studying abroad because it sounds so cool. That dream never came true because I was not a very bright student back in school days. So yeah, study in the country still gives me good life. However, overseas still sounds cool HAHA. Unsure how it all started, travel becomes one of my mission in life. Airlines websites are among my favorite websites wtf.

I do love traveling. Before I start earning my own, I took part in college activities because I wanted to get a chance of getting free airline tickets. You know how it works right? Be active, be winner, then college will send you to compete with contestants from other states. Usually it will be held in West Malaysia. So, we from east will go there. That's how I managed to get free tickets HAHAHA. Its 2 in 1. Competition and jalan-jalan hehe.

Then when I came into real life, earning from my own sweats, my wish getting bigger from domestic to international. This year, I settled down with Bangkok and Bandung. My other half and I keep telling each other how we want to visit Bangkok again because we had not enough. The people is so nice, the food is very delicious, tourist friendly, not to mention shopping heaven. Even though flying to other countries sometimes makes me worry because of language differences (my english is not very good and not very fluent also), but I think so far nothing too hard to handle.

For the time being, I have few places to dream of. Let's see.


One of my favorite. I always tell the universe that I must come here before my last breath wtf. Malaysian needs visa to visit Japan and they say to apply it requires at least RM10k in saving account *gulp* That's a lot of RM!

Can you see how beautiful sakura is? Everything is in pink.

Of course the top reason why I want to visit Japan is I want to spend all my money there! Gosh I really love Japan stuff. I read that Japan has many tourist attractions such as historical buildings but I'm not so into buildings, so I guess shopping suits me best HAHA.


Before this I really really want to visit South Korea. I think it is because I watch tons of Korean dramas or movies. Then, when I read others' experience, I'm not sure anymore why I want to go there. As I mentioned earlier, I prefer going somewhere I can shop till drop HAHA. They say it's a perfect vacation if you want to visit historical buildings or drama set. Yes, I can still shopping there but Japan worth it more. Or maybe I want to go Korea just because I want to ask the universe to let me meet these people;

The hilarious Running Man.

The angels SNSD

Big Bang

I sound like 15 year old girl when I mentioned those Kpop Idols, didn't I? So what? I'm a teenage in the heart HAHAHAHA


Honestly, this never came into my mind until today HAHAHA. I was reading people travel experiences on the net, suddenly I found a thread of Maldives. Maigoodness I don't know Maldives look soooooo beautiful like this. Frankly I do know Maldives as one of beautiful islands, but I don't really care to google more about it until today.

Can you say no? I'm not a beach person. I always avoid the sun. I get sunburn easily. I don't know how to swim. I don't wear swimsuit. I am afraid of sea creatures. But this one is exceptional. 

And actually, I still have an option of not going to Maldives to save cost. I can still go to Sipadan Island or Kapalai Island (pic above). But, you know right, I said something about overseas earlier hehehe. Well, to be truth, I think my other half will forever disagree (unless we win free tickets and accommodation from lucky draw wtf) on this beach idea. He works offshore so he gets boring already. He said whenever he see seas he wants to vomit HAHAHA. But I doubt that because his favorite food is still seafood wtf.

So universe, please let me know which place should I go this coming 2013. Besides, please pour me with lots of RM too. Or if you are double generous, make it in USD. I would be forever thankful for that.
