“A divorce no more crushed my heart, in fact I'm glad it happened and I met my new sayang who is lifting up my spirit. I swim, bike, run because she says so. I trained like a mad man being whipped from behind. I compete because I always want to beat my sayang in the race. I have heroes and one of them is my sayang. I'm an athlete, but like nobody else.”... try to be funny ehhh???
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.
Will join Fiza for more trips in the near future :)
I have been dreaming of going for a honeymoon in Bali since the day I got married... I mean since my first marriage in 1999. But I never had a chance to go until the second marriage, although it was 16 months after the actual ceremony...hehe.
It was an impromptu action, Fiza decided to go and I just follow her along. She said, let it be a birthday treat for me. The place so beautiful, we had so much fun together there and we fell in love with each other all over again.
People said Nusa Penida is like Bali before it was commercialized. Not many tourists coming here, and to get to the tourist spots you have to ride a motorbike or car very far on the treacherous long winding bumpy road. If you never ride a motorcycle, it is not advisable to ride one here, better hire a driver. You also need to be physically fit to explore these places which involved hiking through dangerous steep slopes and stairs. But the view was breathtaking and you forgot all the struggles once you reached the spots…
