Sekarang ini sudah jam 9.43 malam, hari Selasa, 3 November 2015. Sambil menonton tv, sambil update blog...
Saya ingin bercerita tentang perjalanan saya ke Sandakan pada 20-23 Oktober baru-baru ini.
Setelah sampai daripada KL pada malam sebelumnya, kami terpaksa bangun awal pula pada keesokan harinya kerana perlu ke Sandakan menggunakan jalan darat. Perjalanan ke Sandakan akan mengambil masa lebih kurang 6 jam dan saya perlu berada di Sandakan pada jam 1 petang kerana ada program. And not forgetting that I have to wake up at 4.00 am to prepare nasi goreng...ha ha ha, ye laaaa, kut la lapar kan.
Sebenarnya jarak ke Sandakan tidaklah begitu jauh iaitu kurang daripada 400 km sahaja, walau bagaimanapun, oleh kerana jalinan jalan yang menghubungkan KK ke Sandakan adalah tidak begitu baik, maka jangkamasa yang di ambil adalah lebih lama. Satu lagi cabaran sewaktu perjalanan ke Sandakan adalah tiadanya proper RnR. Yup, mencari proper toilet may be a challenge also.
So, we started off at 5.30 am. I don't remember what really happened after that because I was already half asleep and only woke up when hubby was making noise. Yeah, he was excited because we were able to see Kinabalu clearly from our transport....alhamdulillah.
After that, we stopped to have some drinks at Ranau. I did not drink though, since I was trying very hard avoiding the toilet. After that, Saf (who drives) and hubby went to Ranau Market to get this special kuih (apam jawa).
Apam Jawa, perasa pandan, panas-panas tu
Ada perasa gula merah dan jagung juga....sedap.
We managed to arrive at around 12.00 pm, went to the hotel's toilet first and after that had our nasi goreng in the car. The checking in time is at 2.00 pm. After that, the guys sent me to the jetty because I have a visit to "Pulau Penyu" programme.
I hardly know the others so I just have to take my own photo...ha ha ha. It was too hot anyway and the journey to Pulau Penyu took us 40 minutes. Believe it or not, I managed to catch some sleep during this boat ride.
The boat behind us, altogether there were 4 boats
E S S C O M. Smart la depa ni, they look good in black. Bot tu pun hebat....
Ehhh...tak de pulak gambo sewaktu di Pulau Penyu tu. Di pulau ini, they breed penyu dan ada biawak juga...
Lepas tu, saya pun balik ke Hotel. Sesungguhnya, bila masuk aja dalam bilik, saya dah rasa macam nak pengsan aja....semuanya seakan berkumpul : letih/tension M datang + letih sebab aktiviti bertimpa sewaktu balik Semenanjung + the long journey to Sandakan + the heat when visiting Penyu Island.
Sampai aja di bilik, I terus tidur dulu dengan harapan I will feel better after that and can go out for dinner
The view from my room. I woke up a little later to bath and perform my Maghrib prayer. But since both hubby and I do not feel like going out anymore, we called Saf and told him that we are not going out, we were tired. We slept early....
The next two days were filled with meeting and visits while hubby took the opportunity to visit his long lost friend.
Heaven...hubby reading newspaper and at the same time enjoying the view
We took the opportunity to walk around Sandakan town after I came back from my second day visit.
On the third day, we went to have ice cream...
And yeah, we enjoyed having some very delicious seafood but we did not do any shopping at all sebab malas.
We went back to KK on 23 October. We enjoyed the experience in Sandakan and maybe if we go again, we should allocate some time to visit the orang utan at Sepilok.
Okay guys....berhenti di sini dulu ya...
