Kundasang @ Sabah (Part 4)

On the next morning, after sleeping for around 6 hours, i felt much better and we woke up at 4am++ because we planned to see the sunrise...As Sabah's sky will be bright one hour earlier than Kuala Lumpur, that's the reason why we had to wake up earlier...

After we had instant cup noodles for breakfast, we gathered again and we ran to upstair to see the sunrise...Hmm...but unfortunately it is quite hazy so we failed to see beautiful sunrise...

Photobucket
Good morning Kundasang...!!!

Photobucket
They were getting ready to take some photos of the sunrise...

Photobucket
I took this for YuetLeng...

Photobucket
Then i asked YuetLeng to take this back for me...Look at my "Just Wake Up" look...Lolz

Photobucket
Another photo for YuetLeng at different place...

Photobucket
Then i took this for the ladies...

Photobucket
Another shot for them because they asked me don't include the Proton Wira in the photo because they their friends think that they were in Europe...LoL...

Photobucket
Then i took this for YuetLeng and SiewWeng...

After that they suddenly said want to go somewhere else and i just grabbed the car key and my camera and then i just followed WengChye's car...Without combing my hair -_-" Okiez more photos to come~~~

Kundasang @ Sabah (Part 3)

When we went back to Poring Hot Springs, it was around 5.30pm already and actually we heard from a tourist saying that the "Canopy Walk" going to close real soon so that's the reason why we all had to rush to the place...When we reached the place, unfortunately it was closed, although we asked the staffs to help but they said they really cannot do anything for us...Haih...We had no choice already so we went to the hot springs place...

Photobucket
Wow...Look like very hot huh...

Photobucket

We didn't stay long because the sky had turn into dark...

So we went to have some fried noodles for dinner and then we went back to Pine Resort...

Photobucket
After taking bath, everybody gathered in front of the room to chat and to calculate the expenses of our trip...

The wind is actually quite strong and quite cold...The environment is like Fraser's Hill or Cameron Highlands, nice~~~As i was very headache, maybe not enough sleep, so i went to bed earlier than others...

The next morning we had to wake up very early...For what purpose?More to come soon...

Kundasang @ Sabah (Part 2)

So after we placed our luggage in our room, we decided to go to the Poring Hot Springs first...When we reached there, then WengChye went to ask a staff in the souvenir shop regarding the way to go to see rafflesia and Sabah Tea Garden...According to the staff, Poring will be closed at 10pm and the rafflesia place and Sabah Tea Garden will be closed soon...So we decided to go to Sabah Tea Garden first then only we go to see rafflesia...

So we drove to Sabah Tea Garden and when we reached, it closed already..Haha, what to do...Nothing to see...

Photobucket
One of the structure in Sabah Tea Garden, there is a souvenir shop in it...

Photobucket
We took some leaflet and read the history on the board...

I didn't take photo of the tea garden because it was raining heavily...

After that, we heard from a couple, which is a tourist also, saying that the rafflesia place is actually located very near to Poring Hot Springs only, then we felt like being cheated by the Poring Souvenir Shop's staff...We had no choice but to rush back to Poring Hot Springs and luckily, we managed to see the Rafflesia...

Photobucket
WeiChih posing in front of the local's house...

They local resident, if they manage to find any Rafflesia, then they will build fence around the Rafflesia and charge for mayb RM10 per person to see the world largest's flower...

Photobucket

Photobucket
Haha ready to go?

So after few minutes of walking on the super slippery muddy path, we finally see it...

Photobucket

Photobucket
Haha then we started to take photo one by one...

Photobucket
