Weekend jaunt to Adelaide

Image
Fiza got a day off in Adelaide at the end of July. Since we never utilize free ticket for family members, I decided to join her.
The flight was at night and took about 7 hours. We touched down in the morning. After check-in, Fiza was trying to get some sleep. After midday, she woke up and we explored the city center near the malls' area.   The following day, we explored the other side of the city. The weather was nice and the sun shines all day long. We went to the museum, gallery & botanical garden.  Near the end of the day, we decided to go to Glenelg Beach about 40 mins by tram to catch the sunset. We were lucky, we were on time when we arrived at the beach. The wind was so strong and it was very cold. Before heading home we had a tasty fish and chips at a stall near the beach.
 Although it was a short trip, we were blessed to be able to spend time together despite her busy roster. It was like a honeymoon trip. Hope for many more trips to come in the near future.

Weekend jaunt to Labuan

It was my first visit to Labuan. Although the island near to Sabah, actually Labuan is Federal Territory. I was joining Fiza because she got a day off in Labuan on Sunday.
We went out to the nearest beach in the town for a morning jog. Nice 5-6km run from the hotel.

When we get to the hotel, our athlete friend Roy who is base in Labuan was calling and offering to take us out for hiking. He came to pick up us at the hotel after 3pm and drove us to a place called the Chimney at Tanjung Kubong. It was a flat trail with a nice view and some historic building called Gedung Ubat which was built by the Japanese Army during WW2.
After that Roy took us to climb Bukit Kubong. Many Labuan people come here for a very short steep climb to see the view from the top of the hill. Then we went down to the beach for a cendol.
Before we bid farewell to Roy, he dropped us at Medan Ikan Bakar for us to have dinner with other set crews. Thank you Roy for a nice short day trip around Labuan. 

Weekend Jaunt to KCH

First time I joined Sayang night stop in Kuching by boarding the aircraft she was operating. The entire crews treated me very well and I also got 1st class treatment from my Sayang. She made a special welcome drink for me.  

We stayed 2 nites at Hilton Kuching. We got a room with nice view of waterfront. On the 1st day, we walked along the waterfront and crossing over the newly built bridge. There were many tourists and locals hanging around the area until late at night. We went to TOPSPOT for seafood dinner. After dinner, we just went back to the room to sleep early because Fiza has to work early morning. 


While she was working, I went to Pasar Satok alone to buy terubuk masin and jalan2 enjoying local delicacies at Pasar Minggu Satok. Sayang came back in the afternoon but we only went out at night. We crossed the river to the other side using sampan to enjoy our dinner at My Village Barok. The food was good and there was a guy doing a solo performance at the restaurant. He sang prett…
