After came to sabah for 2 years, I think this is the first time I travel.
This is a 2 day 1 night trip to Kudat. Our trip had been joined by 15 members, which are Kar Wai, Ken, ah Yung, Laisan, Charlotte n sis, Kaang Cheing, shian, tienpoh, zaoxying, tracie, wan seong, zibin, pin ping and me. 15 of us divide into 3 cars, which is Saga, Wira n a small Kelisa.
Why 2 big car, 1 small car? It is because the car rental company had not enough big cars for us. So, they send 5 of us which look thinner one, to sit in this small small kelisa. The Kelisa 5 are me, Kar Wai, Ken, ah Yung and Laisan. Me, KW n Yung sit behind, but the space still enough for us, still quite comfortable, just the aircon not enough strong.
The road to Kudat all belok-belok one, must be really careful while driving. From Kota Kinabalu to Kudat, we saw so many sign boards which written Kawasan Kemalangan, Slow, and Kurangkan HadLaju. There is one part of the road which in maintenance, when car pass through is all sand and dust flying around…
1st station: Kg Madu Gombizau Bee Farm
Nothing much special. Even need to pay RM4 to go in see bees n honey, all of us think this money is not worth it. And I bought a bottle of honey there. The funniest thing there should be wearing a hat with net.
2nd station：Sumangkap Gong Making
This station also need to pay, but we think will not worth it, so we didn’t pay to go in. We just going there taking picture with the super big Gong, then we chao already.
3rd station：Kudat Town
Here, we took photo in front the port, saw the memorandum of beginning Malaysia at 1963/9/16, drink 100 plus in Mamak.
4th station：Tips of Borneo/Tanjung Simpang Mengayau
Place which is representative of Kudat. Located at the most north of sabah, which is the dog’s ear in the map of sabah.
The road after turn in the junction heading to tips of Borneo is weird. Why I say weird is because, the road at the beginning and end is in good condition, but dunno why middle had no proper road, just covered by sand and small stones. This stone road is about 10 minutes long, sometimes there are dust flying around until can’t see the road in front properly. Luckily we are driving the rental’s cars, not our own car, if not sure very sakit hati loh.
After a long way, finally we saw Tanjung Simpang Mengayau .The scenary there is so nice，which have blue blue sky, blue n clear ocean, and smooth white sand beach. We plan to see sunset at Tips of Borneo, so we directly drive up to Tips of Borneo.
The wind there is really strong, some of the picture become funny because of the wind.
We all really took a lot picture there.
During climbing up and down of the rocks natural staircase, luckily got helped by Ken, so we all girls are safe. Thanks.
After we took pictures, we need to rush immediately to Long House which is the place we stay. I say we need to rush, because the road had no lamp at all. Before we go out, they ask the ice-cream hawker about the road, and he very kindhearted and give us the map. But they not fully understood the map, so we almost think we are lost. I think even we had lost, our Kelisa 5 also no need t worry, because we got 3 cars 15 ppls, a lot petrol, 3 guys in our car, got foods such as bread, biscuits, honey, and water, really enough for us to live for few days.
This part of road, seem like is a part of our adventurous.
5th station: Rungus Long House
Around reach at 8pm. We ate dinner first. The dinner was just normal dishes comprises of 2 vege,1 chicken dishes, 1 fish and a cup of sabah tea. Then, the people there have performances for us, which are 2 traditional dance and traditional musical instrument performance. They got teach us the first dance too. The traditional instrument performance is special, because they said this is the way they tell their love between a girl and a guy. The female will use her nose to blow the seruling, while the guy will play the traditional wood guitar.
After that, we give an advanced birthday surprise to one of the member: Laisan
After that, everyone rebut to bath. Me and Kar wai went together, she leads me along the road to toilet, because I din wear spec. Thanks Kar Wai. The toilet condition there is still okay.
After everyone had bath. Game time begin. We played the “Killer” game until 3am. The game is fun, but just I do not get to become killer or doctor, so a bit boring sometimes. And dunno why they always say me is Killer, sweat . So, after that I lazy already, and just lazy to explain n just stand aside to watch n laugh. After finish game, they said want to see sunrise at 4am, but because the game had end too late, nobody really willing to wake up on time.
On that night, me, kar wai n Ken stay in the same room. The bed even go mosquito-net, it was the first time I sleep in bed with mosquito-net.
On the another morning, I am the earliest wake up among our 3, haha. After brushing teeth and ate breakfast, we are crazy taking pictures again.
I had bought a souvenir from the Long House, which is a bracelet.
6th station：Pekan Sikuati
Wanna go their Tamu to buy local foods, but we are late, and the stores are closed.
7th station：roadside 1，on the way from kudat to Kota Belud
We found a special Jagung known as Pulut. When you bite it, really seem like biting rice.
Then, I also share with a friend of a fruits which look like mango but not mango, even got a bit taste with durian, haha.
8th station：Kota Belud
We are heading to their Tamu too, but we reach quite late, nothing much to buy too
The funniest thing is that along the road into Kota Belud, there are many cows around, one even crossing the road in front tracie car, luckily she could stop.
We really chat a lot during the way back to KK, and really have a happy conversation.
8th station：road side 2（near Indah Permai）
They suggested to eat Coconut Puding. The Coconut Puding seem special, because in the coconut, it has no coconut water or coconut meat, but have pudding. They also order a set of Lokan, which are the super big Shellfish type, I had tried one, and the taste is quite delicious.
After eating, we are prepared to back to UMS. Finally, we took a Picture of our Kelisa 5.
