Bario Day 1

Image
Who has seen my long ass Instagram post? 😂 This is gonna be an even longer version of it but it will be informative so bear with me 😉 You can start with my Introductory post to Bario from here. 

We were shared that there are only two main ways to access Bario; 

1) Flight via Mas Wings from Miri (Only from Miri, so you'd have to fly to Miri first)
2) Drive for 10 to 12 hours from Miri



The 10 - 12 hours drive is apparently a treacherous one, where you must use a 4WD to go through. I know someone who has done it, and in some cases you'd have to sleep on the road / camp along the forest. Imagine - you are going to a forest in the HIGHLANDS. Initially I wanted to do this to save cost, but who am I kidding, I was coming alone and I wasn't so sure whether it would be a safe idea.

I am quite savage, but that seemed like too epic even for me.

Turns out, I wasn't gonna come alone. Yuen decided to come to Bario with me!!!

The flight was an adventure itself no less.

Coldplay Concert in Taipei, Taiwan

TODAY I feel like updating on one of the most awesome night of my life. It's one of those episode where kind strangers meet shameless Jacqkie, making up a truly awesome ride.

It's typical of my life really 😂 so here goes.


THE STORY



A couple of months ago, the entire world, or maybe South East Asia was in shackles knowing that Coldplay was coming their way to this part of the world. Somehow or rather, Malaysia was not part of the list as metropolitan Kuala Lumpur usually would................

The world tour for South East Asia would encompass Manila, South Korea, Tokyo and Singapore to name a few. Most Malaysians (from Kuala Lumpur mainly due to the accessibility) naturally gravitated and had plans to catch Coldplay in Singapore....... little did they know, or maybe we did we ALL know and didn't expect, that there would be a blood bath.

I LOVE COLDPLAY. I've listened to them since I was a kid, and their songs have saved my life many times, so I'm not going through t…

Gloomy Episode, House Pt 1

Had to get a lot off my chest lately.
The couple of weeks have been very painful for me, mainly because of stress. 
None of that ex-boyfriend BS, nor loneliness (possibly – but right now I’m certain that it’s mainly due to stress). It’s a broken record I know and that every other week is a story of “how much I have to do” blab bla bla that I try to NOT say those words when I’m with my friends or family. Even I get sick and tired of myself. But alas, complaining is too easy. (So I do it again so casually like drinking water). FML.
So the past few weeks have been one of the worst. And I’m writing it down, and telling everyone especially myself.


I am building a house from scratch
This was the main bane of this episode in my life.
I would love to share with you the happy pictures of before and after like the Astro home channels do, but that wasn’t the complete truth. I struggled.
Not renovation, nor extension. I am BUILDING an actual house from scratch, brick and mortar.

This wasn’t the game The…

Kota Kinabalu sunset cruise

Image
A couple of years ago, we "gifted" mum a sunset cruise as a retirement present. It was in a form of a printed voucher hehehehe. A couple of years later, it still didn't happen and my sister wanted to do one now for her birthday.

Many amazing sunsets missed later, we finally chose a date (and a lucky promotional rate from the North Borneo Cruise) to go on board and one to finally coincide with Jessica's birthday.

Of course, that would mean, weather. And like most things, you can't control it. Days before our actual cruise we didn't want to think so much about it, but of course it was lingering in our minds. There is not one without drama of course, the whole week was forecasted to have thunderstorms and rain 😖

There was only one way, Let Go and Let God. Only time I try to wear sunglasses.



But that was the only timing to fit Jessy's birthday, and we only know the North Borneo Cruise that hosts sunset cruises, I understand many do this as well but they we…
