[Activities] Climbing the highest mountain in Malaysia

Akinabalu
Have you climb the highest mountain in Malaysia? It was my third climb.  Why stop at one?

I have always thought that I'm an adventurous person growing up.  I would climb trees and was active in sports (running short distance mostly).  I had, though, probably gone through a phase growing up and shut myself out from the world somehow.   I hated everything then.  I guess things do change, for the better.  I've discovered myself  again and have started opening up to the world.  

Whenever I wanna try something new, I'll overthink and  would probably find ways to avoid it.  Not unless I have paid for it, then it would be impossible to back out.  That was the first time I climb Mount Kinabalu in 2012 via Mesilau Trail.  I never knew booking a slot/slots was that tedious (especially for a big group) till I did the booking myself.  I've also climbed in 2013 via Timpohon - Summit Trail.

[Events] Tomei 50th Anniversary: Xi Fu Wedding Collection Fashion Walk 2018


Tomei is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year and I happened to be showing my sis a photo of Tomei's new Majestic Celebration collection 2018 (this is so pretty, I kid you not, but it wasn't available for showcase yet.  Maybe will be arriving this week) which I thought looked cute on Instagram 4 days ago and she directly called her contact at Tomei Suria Sabah to check it out, found out about an event happening on Saturday and RSVPed when I said I can bring her.  It's the Luxe Heritage: Xifu Wedding Collection Fashion Walk, showcasing Tomei's sets of gold and silver with diamond wedding collection, and life bridal's wedding dresses.

[Activities] Murug Turug Eco Resort

It's funny how social media plays a major role in our daily life.  Like how much time a person spent being online?  I know how it feels like not being online for 4 days (Mulu trip, Digi! YUDo this? I survived, will try to finish writing about that, it's in my draft since last year). 


You know that feeling of seeing something so beautiful and wanting to be there?  I have seen a lot and this is one of the places in my bucket list of places to visit.  I also love following food bloggers/instagrammers hehe.

Been so grateful with having people who share the same sentiment about exploring nature and  totally enjoying the moment.

Weekend Buffet at Avangio Hotel Kota Kinabalu

Once in awhile, we would wanna pamper ourselves with a good meal.  Having a good diet is important but imagine having the same meal with the same portion everyday of the week, how boring.  (I was on an oat diet for a year before, and the thought of oats just makes me sick now ).  I try to workout at least 4 times a week and not feel guilty with food consumption (I have gone through a strict diet regime before, I just don't have the same mindset anymore).  Lemme just EAT HAPPY!

I remember having 2 times a month cheat day and it always falls in the weekend ❤ you know how we love the weekend.  Here's an option to enjoy your weekend.

[Activities] Bukit Bongol, Kota Belud


Hiking has been the in thing since last year with the numbers of spots that you couldn't have imagine exist.  Kota Belud alone probably have over 30 spots to explore.  I have been to certain parts of Kota Belud, for hiking and camping (Kowatuan and Mt. Minodtuhan) but have yet to visit every single one of these places.

Recently, I'd planned a day trip with friends to the famous Bukit Bongol.  Now you must be wondering why this hill in my bucket list, it has been my bucket list since last year for hills to climb.  Not because it is challenging (the dog made it!) but how it will look like in a photo, we all know how everyone love beautiful photos 😂.  There are 10 peaks in of Bukit Bongol.  Yeap, you heard me, 10!!! Imagine multiple camel backs.

There are 3 known starting point to get there:-
via Pirasan
via Kinasaraban
via Kg. Mandap

[Activities] Arnab Village Ranau

A continuation from my previous post.  We left the camp site and proceeded to Arnab Village in Ranau.  What seems to be a short trip became long due to traffic condition heading towards Ranau.  Not too sure what happened, probably an accident?  We were stuck longer than expected (like a 25 mins trip took us more than an hour, whyyy??).  Thank god we have snacks in our car.  Almost lost it.  We had a funny live video on Facebook 😂. 

Every now and then I see a familiar location (race route, KIBBAS!!!) 


Parking spots are available around the area but a bit muddy due to rain.  Entry to the rabbit village is RM5 per person.  There's also a cat room but we didn't go check it out.

[Activities] Polumpung Melangkap View Camp Site (PMVCS)

This year, I thought I'll get back to blogging.  I don't know how often I will write but I guess it only happens when I have good "free" internet connection and when am overflowing with ideas or when I feel like it.

Neways, recently, I'd planned for a trip for the new year's with the gang.  It's our first camping trip I reckon after few years of celebrating it at a friend's house steamboating, well not really in the wilderness but at a camp site where you don't have to worry about digging a hole everytime you gotta do your no. 2 😂.

Our destination: Polumpung Melangkap View Camp Site, Kota Belud.

It's easy to book and you also get fast reply via WhatsApp (012 871 5576/ 012 828 7376 / 016 824 6529 / 014 650 4122).  More info via their FB and IG.

How to get there?



We set off after having breakfast at Menggatal Ngiu Chap at Inanam around 9:30am and gathered at Kota Belud Town after grabbing some extra stuff that we needed.  I think it was fear of hunger that we had a lot of food especially meat options with us.

Got myself some fried chicken from Sugarbun, so tasty!  I feel like eating this again coz it's so good.


Also bought some sweet corn (this is so good, the stall is just along the road) for RM5 and watermelon for RM7.


Point of entry, parking available
Arrived the camp site around past 1:30pm.  Registered and got the stuff we had reserved prior.
Cost breakdown not inclusive the food that we brought with us.
