Itchy Itchy Lah.... Beh Tahan...

Bites Tale : Got to know some new friends in Klias... Life's good... (A note here for all gals out there : Don't travel long distance when you are having your period especially when you need to be sitted for long hours... it feels so..o... uncomfortable when you get off the car...yucks!)

Pic : Taken by SLSY

Tried fish spa for the 1st time last sat...

Felt like kena electric shock when the fish start "biting"...

But damn syoklah after a while... the only thing that put me off is the mosquitoes bites...

And my feet starts feeling itchy today...

It's either the fish or the mosquitoes bites...

Or may be both? O_0

P/S : Looking at the pic, it look so scary pula makes me i wanna puke pula...

Hard work

Bites Tale : Love is hard work... and hard work can be a pain in the ass...

It hurts... and could be really mad sometimes


If both are willing to understand each hold on together... to be strong... to have faith...

And be devoted to each other to achieve something that we believe will give us purpose and meaning now...

Then it's worth the fights... all the fights previously...

I'm glad he came and we managed to talk things out...

Communication didn't break down this time...

Now i have higher hopes and i can't wait for it to come true.

Of course, there will still be a lot of hard work needed from both...

But i believe when there's a will, there's a way... and now both are not alone.

"Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction. --- Saint Exupery"

PUSH : Pray Until Something Happens

Bites Tale : Feel like i am handicapped when i wanted to work things out... I really wanted to... wish we could go back to the good times... where we understand each other so much... feel like we've missed out on everything... all the fights are driving me insane...

It's almost 3am now...

Couldn't control my tears...

Been crying for days now...

Wanted to stop but i couldn't...

I know it's useless to cry...

I know i look like shit...

I wish there is a stronger me...

A meaningful quote a day keeps the doctor away...

Bites Tale : Have finished uploaded the photos from Mengkabong Water Village -- up soon. Then next will be about my trip to Bali and Kuching... gosh.... i'm so slow in updating... just stay with me ya! (As if i have lots of people reading my blog, hahahaha!!!)

"So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning."

--- Morris “Morrie” Schwartz
(From the book "Tuesday with Morrie" by Mitch Albom)

Got this tag from Business Mars.

Frankly, i love quotes.... it excites me whenever i find a meaningful quote - from books, novels, movies or even blogs - it just simply plant a smile on me and instantly pick up my spirit especially at times when i am fighting with my own emotions.

I got this quote from "Tuesday with Morrie" which has always been my favourite book. I remember when i 1st read it, is on my way back from KL sometime around mid 2006 where i was alone. I was at the airport and went into a bookstore to get some magazines and books just to pass my time there. That's when i saw this book, picked it up, and was hooked to it as i started reading the 1st few pages. So, i bought it and it never left my hands for the remaining hours until i finished reading it on the plane. It was the greatest story and life lessons i ever read in a book, i just couldn't stop my tears from running down my neck...

Since then, this book has become the "Perfect Gift" that i could think of for my loves one... once i remember buying more than 10 copies of this book as new year gifts for my friends and even my bosses. Hoping that i can share with them what i learned from this book.

Frankly, it was very hard for me to select "The Quote" from this book. There are just so many of them... each of them is so meaningful and beautiful the way they are put into words. Morrie has so many quotes to share with us in different aspects of life -- Family, Love, Money & Power, Forgiveness, Youth, Aging and etc, i love them equally so i just kinda select one off the book without thinking too much... hoping that you could get yourself a copy of this book if you haven't read it. :)

This blog is no longer active...

Bites Tale : I'm serious... really... well.... actually... no lah... i love blogging too much to give up...

Been neglecting my blog...

Wersp is right... there're no longer humour in here... i used to write down funny things i did or i encountered in my life.. seriously.. there were none lately... so many things happened... confusion... confusion and confusion... only 1 person to blame.. ME... for being so naive.

It's not that i purposely stop blogging for the past 2 weeks... i was really caught up with work and there actually been a few times where i tried to start typing but then my mind was starting to think about things i should have let go by then, so i just couldn't.

But anyway, like how people used to say.... Life goes on...

So, life MUST go on...

I did something silly this afternoon.... (This is for you, Wersp)..

This is what happens when i do more than 2 things at a time..

Scenario :

Handphone rang, picked up the phone...

Me : Hello?

A : Hi, Can i speak to XXX (A name of a friend's daughter)

Me : I'm sorry she is not here, i guess you called this number because she puts me as a reference.

A : What relationship you have with her?

*I was referring to some notes, typing on the keyboard... trying to end the conversation quickly... so i answered

Me : She is my daughter's friend

* The other end was a total silence...

Then it hit me, so i quickly said :"I'm sorry. She's my friend's daughter... I'm not even married yet!!! What the heck!!! Hahahaha... " (Felt an instant heat on my face, I must be blushing... she must be feeling strange... because i have a very very young voice..)

A : (Laughing so hard... it actually took her quite a while to answer me back) Ok Ok.. Hahaha... urmm ah... Hahahaha... bye...

She put down the phone.

And i don't even know who is she and why she made the call.

I guess, your usual meatball is back!

Mengkabong Water Village

Bites Tale : Finally, i realised that the person who really love me and care about me is always on my side. He's right, i should have put effort in making our relationship work rather than giving chances to another guy whom i don't know much about.

Glad to be back safely.

Really nervous when i was in the boat, luckily the boatman understands that we are scared and he didn't went fast.


Details on the whole trip up next.

1 step forward...

Bites Tale : I'm sorry for last night.

Will be going for a boat ride later.

Yes... boat ride...

They said the water wouldn't be rough...

So it may be a chance for me to overcome my fear... since it's already been so long since the accident.

But then, i'm nervous.

Wish me all the best.

Hello ... and Goodbye

Bites Tale : Everything will be buried deep down...

So many things happened for the past weeks.

I felt so helpless sometimes....

I know i should appreciate the people around me who love me... people that i know... people that really know me... understand me and most importantly appreciate and is sincere to me.

Not someone i don't know... not someone who i don't know what's in his mind... not someone who keep playing games with me... not someone who blinded me with his words only.

But I'm just plain stupid... again and again...

So helpless that i even thought of how good it'd be if i wouldn't wake up the next day...

Also thought may be this someone is for real after all.... but ended up i was fooled again...

I've learned my lesson... enough lessons...

So i guess is time to really say goodbye and no more games...

Road to Kinabatangan River

Bites Tale : For a moment, i thought i actually meant something to you, but in fact, i'm nothing.

Coming out from Rungus Long House and we head off to Bilit, where we will be staying overnight for that day. It was a tough ride that's mean we will be on the road for hours passing by oil palm plantations, villages and gravels.. one of us got sick due to long ride. I'm still doing fine, thanks to nescafe 3-in-1 and honey from the bee farm.. if you are asking how come we can have coffee on the road.. that's because the guide will stopover to fill the flask with hot boiling water throughout the journey.

Ya.. i never had coffee or food in the middle of no where... we would stopped at a village / highway or anywhere where the guide feel it's safe for us to stopover and stretch our muscle, had some food and coffee or even for the guys to pee... that's my 1st ever experience... i kinda missed the trip already.. so many 1st time.. with great companion.. and great guide who look after us very well.

Pic : Gravels and oil palm plantations

Nothing much to see through out the journey... we were already bored with so many oil palm plantations along the road.. as for me, i slept until we stopover for lunch.

Pic : Kedai Kopi Forest

I forgot where is this shop located.. as the name stated... Forest.. this row of shops is in the middle of no where... i only remember there're lot's of oil palm plantations around. We just had a quick lunch.. went to the loo... and off we go again.

Pic : Ah.... raining again... Grrrr!!!

We reach the jetty at around 4.30pm, there will be a boat waiting for us to bring us to the lodge where we'll be staying for the night. We need to park our car at the village as car cannot go into the lodge.

Pic : Walking down to the jetty

The Kinabatangan River is the 2nd longest river in Malaysia i.e. 560 kilometers from its headwaters in the mountains of southwest Sabah to its outlet at Sulu Sea, east of Sandakan.

Pic : Kinabatangan River

To our surprise, the water was very fast and there were no life jackets for us.. we requested for life jackets but the boat man said it's a 1 minute ride across the river.. our guide talked to them but to no avail.. so off we go.

Pic : The boat we rode on

Pic : The washroom at the Jetty

Pic : Our bags... there's so much.. we worried that the boat will be overloaded

The guide told us that Kinabatangan River is renowned for its remarkable wildlife and habitats... we could even see pygmy elephants if we are lucky enough. Since we were already lucky to see "something" (will reveal to you at the end of this post), we might be lucky to see the elephants too.

Pic : Off we went

Pic : This took us more than 1 min as per told by the boatman.. grrr!!

We reached the lodge i think about 3 - 4 mins.

Will be posting bout the lodge and our trail to oxbow lake soon.

And about that lucky thing we saw....


We saw 7 hornbills ... ya.. 7.. while we were on the road...

But... i can't get the pic... they flew off.. this is the best i could get..

Pic : 3 hornbills... they really look like cartoons.

Rungus Long House

Bites Tale : You looked so pale and thin, it actually shocked me... please take good care of yourself.... please...

We spent the rest of the day at Bavaggazo Rungus Longhouse.

Rungus tribe is the main ethnic group in Kudat and are renowed in for their skills in making colourful beaded accessories, basket and cloth weaving. Staying at the longhouse is really a new experience for us, the most difficult part for me is to bath with no water heater.. (shy... i'm a spoilt brat, i know!)... and to bath together with men! Hahaha... of cos in different cubicle.. but still.. there's still not enough "privacy" during bath time. But i do really enjoy the time when we were all standing side by side and brush our teeth after dinner. That was fun.

We were greeted and were brought to the rooms we will be staying overnight. We then unpacked, rest and chit chat while having our tea break.

Pic : The longhouse we stayed overnight

Pic : Overview of the long house, the doors at the left are doors to our rooms

Pic : Can't live without the ultimate companion of all times - Nescafe 3 in 1 Classic

Pic : Who'd have thought - having Nescafe + Fu Yuen's Roti Kahwin at longhouse - bet Fu Yuen's boss will be happy to know this! ;)

Pic : Our "tents" - and my torchlight.. it's quite dark in the room even with the lights on... u can't see it because of my camera flash

Pic : They even have a "rack" for us to put our bags and stuffs

Pic : Night view of the longhouse

Pic : We had dinner at a hut right at the side of the long house

Pic : Our dining table & chairs

Pic : What have we got here?

Pic : Was really surprise at the variety of the dishes

Pic : I'm not stupid after all... :P

Pic : My bed..... and my torchlight

Pic : Our breakfast... :)

Pic : View across the hut where we had our meals... nice weather today...
