Kawang Camping Trip

So i promised to make a post on the camping trip that i had a couple of weeks earlier. I went camping with 96 students of mine at Kawang. The camping trip was actually an activity of one of their subject (not my subject) and i decided to tagg along because i wouldnt want to be idling at the office for 3 days.

Okay, so we head up to Kawang on the 11th of March at 10am. The journey took us about 1 hour to reach there. It wasn't that far actually but we had to drive slow.. safety first bah, lagipun banyak ni anak urang yang mau dijaga hehe.
Some of the boys - Hendrikus, Le Roy, Aldie, Jimmy & Zamry
Girl's tents -- this is where some of the girls slept.
Some of my students.
Jungle trekking at night to the waterfall on Day 1

Along the way, we saw this.. Can you spot the insect??
On Day 2 we went into the jungle (the same place where we had our jungle trekking) for some sight seeing. Besar kan the pokok?
Sherazean, Saiful, Wiston, Robson, Yours Truy, Dolly & Hafizan
The waterfall.
Star foots!
Day 2 - Charles, Val & Deddy just before starting the climb up to the bats cave.
Ramai kan we all? see if you can spot me! hehehe

The guide told me that the hike is 2.9km and whoever wrote 1.9km must not know how to write the number "2" lol!
Roland and Jimmy
Hiking up
Looky what we have here... PACATTT!! hahaha. Almost everyone (minus me) was screaming pacat in the forest. Me? naah, im not scared of that little bugger.

We took about 4-5 hours to complete the whole jungle trekking, since it was raining and the pathway was all muddy we sometimes had to slide on our butts. I hit a tree when sliding down the hill and that was when my arm got bruised. I seriously wanted to take off my jeans in the middle of the jungle at some point because it was so heavy as a result of getting soaked by the rain. It was reeeeaaaalllly hard to hike in the jungle wearing soaked jeans. A lesson learned :D ni la akibat kalu mo begaya ja hahahahha.. hiking pun mo pakai jeans hohohoho
That night was Malam Seribu Sayang.. All of them brought along their sarungs except for me cos i didnt know about having to bring our sarungs. But it's okay though cos Dolly and Esther (the two girls in the above picture) didnt wear their sarungs too :D ada juga kawan sa heheh
Roland and I.. ensem kan my student hehehehehe
Waiting to go home
Day 3 - Time to say goodbye.

It's been a loooooong while since i went on a camping trip and i was glad i went along. On the way back from Kawang to KK i called up my dad to fetch me at KK and guess what??? he was at Kota Marudu. OMG!!! i didnt want to take the bus home with so many things to carry!! so i called everyone i know on my cellphone and luckily my cousin was willing to fetch me.. she was the lifesaver of the day :D

When she came to fetch me, she asked whether i was interested to go to 1Borneo for lunch and i unwillingly said yes (my body was aching like hell plus i look like a trainwreck -- i got no makeup on, and my hair's in a mess) But luckily i didnt see anyone i know there hehe.

Dad fetched me at my cousin's place in the evening at around 4pm. As soon as i reached home, i unpack my stuffs, throw my dirty laundry in the washing machine, took a loooong hot shower and went to bed. But my sleep was cut short. Mom woke me up because I had singing practice that night at church. Damn. Being a good-girl-who-doesnt-miss-practice that i am, i went.

It was a hectic day, but i like hectic. It keeps my mind off umm, ..stuffs :)

Middle Eastern Food in KK

Yes, there is now an Arabic fast food in KK called "Alladin". My bestie told me a week or so ago about this but only last sunday when i was at 1Borneo (again) for a movie with my brother (we watched Watchmen) i saw this stall when we were about to make our way to the exit. I got all excited because i dont get to eat shawarma everyday.. and the closest shawarma is in the Philippines. I ordered one chicken shawarma and out of my excitement..

..i got dissapointed. The shawarma wasn't the shawarma i expected it to be! :( I mean. in terms of how it taste. It looks like your regular shawarma but it taste awful. I felt like i was eating a chicken burger in the form of a shawarma!..The pita was too thick and i had a hard time chewing it. I did not like it at all. I wanted to fly to the Philippines that instant just for a shawarma.

Alladin Arabic Fast Food.. thats the first and last time for KK middle eastern food for me

The menu. I know it's hard to read from the picture. Try clicking on the picture to enlarge it.

On another different note, i just want to tell all ya'll that i've got all 4 books of the twilight saga!! yeayyyy.. (i completed my collection 3 weeks ago hehehehe.. seee?? i told you im the queen of procrastination)

Food Talk.

I meant to post this earlier, but as usual procrastination got the best of me. Last saturday, me and my cousins went to GSC 1Borneo to watch City of Ember at 11.30pm. We got there early, at around 10.15pm. So we circled around 1Borneo in search of food. Since it was late, every shop was starting to close down. When we stopped at California Grill, the first thing we asked was "mau tutup suda ka?" hahaha.. when they said no, we straight away went inside and this was what we ordered:

Lemon tea for the three of us


Ceaser salad


Seafood pizza


I enjoyed the food there, and i must say the price wasn't as expensive as i thought it would be..Ceaser Salad was RM10.90 and Pizza (regular) was RM19

After having supper, we went up to GSC and watched our movie.
After movie, i was suppose to meet some friends at KK but when i texted them, they were already home and said that i was late hahaha. I told them i'll join them next time.. tomorrow never dies right? :)

Forget About Me



I wouldn't have known about this song if it wasn't for a dear friend, Zachary who requested this on facebook. This song has the same rhythm and beat as Neyo's Miss Independent but i couldnt get my hands on the original instrumental. This is the closest i could get. Here are the lyrics to the song.

You said it wasn't
Gonna be like It was before
Then it happened again Pushing me back Out the door
Thought it would be For real this time
Love me forget About the signs
So now what do I do Now that I know That we're through

Wish that I Could move on
Can't let go It's too strong
Just like that And then you're gone
Is this how You wanted it to be
Everything you had to say
Sent the tears Right down my face
Now I'm trying to escape The misery

[Chorus:]
Why don't you love me The way I loved you
It feels so crazy Cause I dunno What I did to you
If you're gonna hurt me Then do it quickly
Cause I'm tired of cryin' If you don't wanna Stick around
Then, baby Forget about me

Too late, sorry
I didn't even Have the chance
You said you were happy
Baby I don't understand
Gave you everything You asked for
And was ready To give you a lot more
I would've given you The world
Right in the palm Of your hand

Wish that I Could move on
Can't let go It's too strong
Just like that And then you're gone
Was this how You wanted it to be
Everything you had to say Sent the tears Right down my face
Now I'm trying to escape The misery

[Chorus:]
Why don't you love me The way I loved you
It feels so crazy Cause I dunno What I did to you
If you're gonna hurt me Then do it quickly
Cause I'm tired of cryin' If you don't wanna Stick around
Then, baby Forget about me

Boy My heart was true
And that you can't deny
Don't be a fool And walk away From all the lies
It's up to you Cause heaven knows I've tried
Tell me You're still in love

[Chorus:]
Why don't you love me The way I loved you
It feels so crazy Cause I dunno What I did to you
If you're gonna hurt me Then do it quickly
Cause I'm tired of cryin'
If you don't wanna Stick around
Then, baby Forget about me

Forget about me
I really loved you...

The Long Weekend

BACKPOST : This happened 2 weeks ago (7th March - 8th March 2009)

Since it was a public holiday on monday me and a few friends (me, iuq, jeba, itah & harriet - itah's bf) decided to go to The Tip of Borneo at Kudat. They picked me up at my house around 5pm and had to go slow because it was raining cats and dogs. Since it was already night time when we passed Kota Belud, we decided to spend the night at Kota Marudu and make Tip of Borneo oour priority the next day. We arrived at Kota Marudu at around 8pm and had our dinner at Warung Kak Siti.. I had rojak ayam, since i never tasted Kota Marudu's rojak ayam. Not too bad i must say.


Us at Warung Kak Siti.

After dinner, we went to iuq's house and spent the night there.

We had to wake up early the next morning as we plan to watch the sunrise at Simpang Mengayau.. KONON! hahaha. We made our way from Kota Marudu at 5.30am and arrived at Simpang Mengayau at around 8-8.30am. We drove slow because iuq just had an accident a few months earlier and she's still wearing a neck brace. It's okay arriving late though, the important thing is that WE arrived there safe. kan?? kan???

Us at Simpang Mengayau

Going down to the tip.

Iuq, me and Jeba

I wanted to go closer to the tip but the waves were starting to get wild. The waves got to me and my pants got all wet as a result of that.

The tip of Borneo.. what a sight.

kodak moments in the making

Me and Itah

Yours truly

After spending some one or two hours there, we drove back to Kota Marudu. Iuq suggested we go see the 4x4 challenge at Tagas. So we went.

One of the contenders trying to get through the rocks.

It was my 1st time to go to such event. Ive heard about the 4x4 challenges like all the time but never even bothered to go. Now i know why people are so into it. Wanna know why? go check it out for yourself la baa..

Then it was time to go home. It was almost noon and we havent had our breakfast yet but we weren't that hungry and Harriet had to drive back to Sandakan that same day but before he could do that, he had to drive us back to KK so in short, we were in a hurry. We all (minus Harriet) had our brunch at Kingfisher. I savoured every grain of rice i had as i was really REAAAAALLLLY hungry that time. It was around 2pm hehehe.. kids, dont follow our eating habits. Nanti segala gastric, dugal keluar tauu.. nasip sa teda dugal heheh.

It was a fun weekend no doubt :)

Last Week

My entries will be backposts for a while heheh. I have been delaying a lot of posts you might as well call me the queen of procrastination! Ive got loaaads of pictures to show as i have been here and there..

These were taken last week. Just read the captions for explanation heheh..

At church, playing with my baby niece Clarissa Angel

Kimberly and me.. It was her debut as a flower girl that day for a cousin's cousin's wedding.


Me, mom and Kimberly.. last shot before we head ourselves home. That same evening, i packed my bags and headed to Kota Marudu (will talk about this in the next post :))

They're all my cousins - Me, Ita, Iuq & Josie (except for Josie, who is my sister)
Cousins.

My niece Kimberly took this while i was waiting for mansau time. She was begging me to let her take my picture, being a good aunt that i am *wink* i let her handle my camera. She's 4 years old, and im always scared if i let her play with the camera, she'll drop it or whatever.
