Sarawak's trip part 2

After a much long week, here's the part 2 of my Sarawak's trip. (All of my friends have updated the whole trip but still I'm still writing it. I've been pretty lazy lately.) *smacks head

After got back from Kuching, we spent our night at Teresa's house. The next morning we started our journey to Miri by cars and it was indeed a bumpy ride, as the road condition was.. you know.. :)

Soon after we reached Miri, we went to Uncle Tay's house. Aunty Tay was so nice to cook us some food before we took off to Museum Petroleum.

Lai Hoong and I :)

Lit Shiuan caught a bug! *runs away*

pouting Billy and I. (acting sexy eh, Bill? lol.)

I know you're strong, Lit Shiuan! :p

Miri Crocodile's Farm was our next hop. There were plenty of animals there ranging from the animals we usually see - monkeys, birds, ducks to some more exciting one - bats, bears, crocodiles, and the world's most dangerous bird. The Southern Cassowary is known as the world's most dangerous bird by the World Record. Yes, it has beautiful eyes and colorful furs at the neck's part but don't ever think of petting it lol. The probability of you getting attacked would be much likely greater than 1. ;)

That's the bird :/

RM12 for one crocodile egg. well, we shouldn't be harming them..

they're hugeeeeee and keep sleeping.

Hill Myna (Burung Tiung). A very smart bird as it will imitate ur voice.

A stork.. it looks scary :/

Asean Bridge (or Batand Baram Bridge) is a bridge which connecting Sarawak and Brunei. It is the longest bridge in Miri and we stopped at the small port right beside the bridge.

we were too free so we did some stupid thing ;P

some scene nearby the bridge. *taken by Billy

I love the sun shining on my face.

We had tried some Iban's snacks at a stall next to the port. It's made by fried mee-hun which I first felt weird. Anyway it's very crispy, so it's all good. =) Just a bit oily tho.

The next morning, we snapped a group photo before venturing into the Lambir National Park.

Clockwise: Timothy, Billy, me, Kar Ling and Lai Hoong

I always loathe bathing myself in unimaginably cold water during cloudy weather, so I decided not to get wet in water fall. Heh, at least I dipped my legs inside the water and tried to catch some tiny prawns. lol

curious us looking at the small lil' prawn

We had a fun picnic at the lawn not far from the main office of the national park. My stomach is big enough to fill in with few serving of tuna sandwiches, eggs and hot dogs. lol. No wonder I've been trying hard to shed a few pounds but the reading on the weighing scale never satisfied me. ;(

Before going back home, we had some sight-seeing and passed by the "first traffic light on the bridge" in Malaysia, which located at Old Lutong. According to Aunty Tay, the bridge was built by Shell long time ago.

I would say the next hour after we visited Taman Awam in Miri, would be one of my best moment in my life for witnessing some breath-taking scenery, I mean. ;) Because I've seen the best sunset in Tanjung Lobang Beach. :)

Teresa, Kar Ling and I =)

We smiled. We laughed out loud.

We laughed out louder, and gone crazy that we couldn't control ourself from acting stupid. lol

to hold ur hand and watch the sun goes down - how I wish..

Last night in Miri was spent in hanging around at the Miri City Fan. Ivan used his camera and tripod to test some shots. We had a lot of fun for doing the testing lol.

Aunty Tay cooked some delicious fried mee-hun for us in the next morning, before we left their house. On the other hand, I just couldn't stop taking photos of plants in her lovely garden ;)

I love how the pink looks like. =)

Goodbye Miri! Next, Niah Cave and Bintulu =)

It took some time before it came, but at last we got your report! A lot of fun together with friends in a nice and interesting country! Just wonderful!

Agree with Peter; it took some time, but it was worth while waiting! The only question is that, as you were away from blogosphere for so long, you missed my CowParade post and poll... ;)) Anyhow, you'll be welcome for the Sofia, Bulgaria show, lol!
Have a great weekend!
