Love · Life · Fun (IV)

A Year half-progressed.  Let’s sit down and write/read with me.

June has always been a bump, of all the months in a year with the birth month curse. However, I’d kicked off with a vacation of which I have work hard (on my body) for. A vacation planned in advance is a vacation body-works-worthy, because a fit body can reasonably be achieved in 6 months! (And then perhaps rest for 6 months before another summer vacation kicks in in 12 months.)

Oh-la-lah~ Summer vacation!

Bamboo Island

Krabi, Thailand is a remotely urban island which in recent years getting flooded by tourists. Nonetheless, it’s a good destination for its low expenses.

Beautiful..
but it can get (too) crowded. ☹

Moving away from the beaches (pun intended), Emerald Pool is another interesting spot with naturally emerald mineral pool,

which is also overtly crowded.

Luckily, 800 meters away is a gem worth the visit – Blue Pool.

A preserved pool with no swimming allowed (thank god they save this pool!).

Here are the rest of the fun:

Legs for sale

Hot babes not for sale

看我的飞毛腿 (Look at my flying hair leg)

Well, in order to support the luxuries, we as hooman have to come back to reality. Life has been changing and it continues in a way I hope, to change someone’s for better.
Because the change being so drastic and the effort to sustain being cumbersome, I was asked if I regret the change. Not in a single way.

Life is not to regret your decision, but to proof it’s right.

________________________________________

To proof it’s right and continue to believe when hope shakes.

爱,因为相信而美好。

Retreat, Recapped, Reminisce

Sabah, dubbed the land beneath the wind/breeze (negeri di bawah bayu), is the largest state in Malaysia (Borneo island) next to the first (like, literally).

We raced the sunset and touched down in a small airport. Not comparable to a world class international airport. But, there’s something about it that you feel safe in this place. Probably it’s home after all.

image

Yep, for west Malaysians.

West Malaysians need to get custom stamping entering the state. Nope, there’s no bias-treatment at this point, nor any after this. All we’ve got here is good food, good weather and good people!

image

Seafood for supper, noodles,noodles and noodles for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Just kidding, we didn’t had that much noodles though Sabah is really famous for her noodles.

春卷肉肉肉圓面!That translate to spring roll meaty meat balls noodle. (Y) Yummehness beyond descriptions!

Behold! Below we reveal the highly anticipated mystery fruit – tarap!

The fruits of Artocarpus sericicarpus (also known as the pedalai, marang and johey oak)

We bit farewell to this land of noodles after 3 days of non stop food hunt and islands hopping!
And so lastly, I present you……….
Fishes!

Jogjakarta Getaway – Anyhow Take Also Very Nice Entry: Mt. Bromo

It is a disastrous morning where we have to wake up at 3am and hike. Shot a vodka and I’m ready to go!

The moon from last night(?).

Hill top isn’t too far, Hotel Yoschi is located at 4/5 of Bromo. We only took a 20 minutes easy peasy (we are happy early birds!) jeep ride up.
