[Activities] The magnificent waterfall in Telupid : Tawai Waterfall

Don't you just miss my hiking stories? Me too!!!

Side note: If you prefer a faster method of understanding the route, watch my reel or TikTok video ok.

So I finally went hiking and joined a group to Tawai last 26th Nov 2022 (mind u, I book this a month prior with sis Rose). 

The trip costs RM180 including return transport to and from Telupid (excluding meals, will stop by restaurant at the designated location for a meal at own expense).

Check out rosesabahlady or tantisuria for other trips planned till next year!

The waterfall is said to be the 2nd tallest waterfall in Sabah, towering at 95m.  It has been on my bucket list for the longest time.

Elevation: 500m.

Estimated time: 5 - 6 hours (return trip).

Distance: 11-12km (my watch clocked around 12km).

Difficulty: Moderate.

[Activities] An adventure to the Taralamas River Canyon, Kg. Tiang Lama, Ranau.

Wow, what a year.  I can't remember the last time, oh wait I did went for hiking months back to Tamaza Waterfall (sorry blog post tergendala) but I haven't been doing it as often that I would have liked.  This time, went on a trip with my group from handstand class with a runner friend to Taralamas River Canyon in Ranau. 

We opt for overnight at the homestay which cost us RM30 per person, coz we needed the electricity to charge our phones (there's camping 🏕 option: Bring your own tent at RM10 per pax and RM20 per pax for option at the sulap), and coz it's way more convenient than waking up early and driving at 3am to get to our somewhat unknown destination that might take us 3 hours to reach.

Russell ‘Taylors’ to Sabahans’ needs by bringing its products to S-Mart Sabah

Russell Taylors, a brand specialising in kitchen appliances for the home, now delivers its line of products to Sabahans directly from the state itself via a collaboration with Malaysia’s no. 1 e-commerce platform Shopee. This expansion is on the back of market research executed by the brand, where resulting insights have shown a strong demand for Russell Taylors goods from Sabah.

With the country still battling the spread of Covid-19, the digitalization of businesses becomes essential as more Malaysians shop online for necessities including home appliances. This is apparent in the sales performance achieved by Russell Taylors on Shopee during the Movement Control Order (MCO) period.

After hearing her plight, Shopee got in touch with Veveonah to better understand her needs.  The e-commerce platform then put together a kit comprising a laptop, smartphone, backpack, wireless Bluetooth speaker, headphones, powerbank and smartwatch to aid her in her education.  Shopee Mall retailer, N4 Camera Store who learned about Veveonah's interest in Youtube video-making also extended a sponsorship of a tripod and ring light to support her hobby.
