is really 4 ur own good. wish both of u all the hapiness 😀
We were all prepared 5 in the morning at the Bus stop in UNIMAS. By the time we loaded everything in the bus, it was quite bright already. I am really glad because I got to see the road the bus driver used from Kota Samarahan, cut straight till Siburan! When we reached Siburan, I was so proud to announce, I climbed the hill before. Along the way I get to see a lot of places I only heard of. Like Similajau, Maro-Datu, Engkilili!!!! I used to work as a consultant for the local government and I always come across those places. I always wanted to go to Batang Ai! 😀 I know the way already!!!! By the time we reached along Sibu and Bintulu road, for the first time I saw real long houses!!!!!!!! Not the one designed for tourists. People that knows me, know, these houses are rooted in my heart even though I had been brought up in Kuching. We reached Miri at night, straight checking into the Petronas Sports complex. We shared room with 10 other girls, double decker beds, hostel style. The 23 girls shared 4 toilets and 4 bathrooms. Is a really good backpacking experience!
The next day we visited Curtin University. Is really like being in overseas!!!!!! Next stop, Bintang Mega Mall. Guess what Mizan and I chose? Shashaki!!!! At Miri, the students told Mizan not to sleep, then they said Miss Ping2 too. Then I sms-ed Mizan, they want to celebrate your Birthday. To my surprise, they celebrated Teachers’ day with us. Haha, I celebrated for the first time, teachers’ day in my pajamas!!!! Thanks guys very, very much
By the time we reached Brunei, it was all the way – lost! One very important thing I learned from my wonderful kids, GPS and friend. hahah, Kenny worried we might be lose again, contacted his friend. His friend actually drove two hours from KK all the way down to bring us all the way up to UMS!!!!!! By the time we reached KK, I think it must be 2 am! And his amazing friend woke up 5 am to drive another 2 more hours then back when we are returning to KCH. Yes! We have two amazing bus drivers that is sporting enough to go along with the students even though they do not know the way! 😀 Another thing I learned, under really strict budget, we can find ways and still have fun. We used to take boats from the Jesselton Point but guess what, there is another ferry pick up point down the waterfront. Amazingly my kids got me a return boat ride to two islands, for RM25 with life jacket!!!!!!! Cool kids I have right? 😀
We did a full stretch 30Hs drive all the way back from KK – Brunei – Kuching. There is still a lot of places I have never been in Sarawak. My mother land my heart. I saw 4WDs lined up this morning. Tawau – Kalimantan printed on it. One day I am going to have my own 4WD. Instead of Jelajah Ilmu, it is going to my very own Jelajah Borneo!
