Day 5 : #spirigrosurfsabah

EXCITEMENT AT ITS FINEST GIRL ITS MY BIRTHDAY

   I woke up with a lot of balloons at the hall, but none of them excited as i am. They even asked me to blow the balloons together because they're out of "angin" already. Girls, please, this was my day okay. 
pardon my sepet-restless-excited face
    As in the planning, we wanted to swim and celebrate my birthday at the pool but due to our packed activities last few days and all of us literally died during the last night, none of us woke up at 8 am. Mostly, at 9 am and me at 10 am. Had only few hours before check out, and we were freaking hungry, Moshi, Aina and Wani went to Mcd to buy some breakfast. Had our last breakfast together and enjoying last hours together. Its the little things that matters. 
   Everyone was getting ready, packed everything, and im being the responsible person of this house rechecked everything so that nothing left behind, no trash, towels were on same quantity when we check in, you knowwwwwwww just doing my job and right after i opened the master bedroom, i heard someone screamed "shitttttttttt!" and i've found this, and they weren't ready yet. I LAUGHED SO HARD. 
     They cursed me and asking me again and again why did i opened the door without knocking it first. You know, this kind of surprise should ended with a birthday girl bursts into tears. Plot twist for me, i laughed till i cried. Eventhough i got a lot of "sakaila ko ni" "bodo spoiler" "bangang tak sabar", i felt so so so so appreciated, i never felt more blessed than this. A big thank you for your efforts (when did they bought the balloons and kitkat when im with them all the time?!) , money (kitkat costs double at sabah seriously) and love. 
18. Tak kena tahan dengan uncle imigresen dah. 
    Check out, and head to Pasar Filipina to buy some kerepeks, biskut gary (im a big fan of this! menyesal beli sikit jer), and so cliche mutiara. The thing that I love about Sabah is the people, they were so nice and put so much efforts on finding the right angle when we asked to snap our pictures, friendly nak mampos andddddd kind-hearted person. One of the makcik kerepek at Pasar Filipina  asked me, where did i bought the rest of kerepeks yang dia nak bungkus sekali tu, i told her i bought it at Kundasang and she replied "Mahal kan kat atas?" and ive thought that she gonna bad mouthing the seller at Kundasang but then she said "Tapi, itu memang sudah rezeki dia menjual di atas sana kan". Im speechless and touched. 
Really wanted this but this is the real pearl whatsoever and its pricy, so jalan :(
Bought the whole box lol 

   Hujan selebat-lebatnya turun and it was hard for us to call for uber, everything was so messed up. Bag dekat apartment lobby tak ambil lagi. Then, after got into uber, trafic jammed and its already 5 pm and our boarding time was at 6 pm. So kabut, ran again in the airport (ergh ingatkan waktu pergi dah lari, waktu balik takyah) and thank god, flight delayed due to bad weather. 

And, we had fun in the flight. Ecah is still looking and waiting for her "abang" till now. 

   To many more adventurous (my friends are so demanding and drama queen, so no) exciting, interesting places to go. Surf the world next.

Day 4 : #spirigrosurfsabah

                                                       THE MOST AWAITED DAY!!!
  As usual, Abang Farid already waited for us at the car park and we still kabut tak siap lagi. Had our breakfast, tapau some foods, and here we go! Mak Nuha and boss Abang Farid already arranged our island trip for today so, right after we arrived the jetty, theres already a cute uncle wait for us with a boat! Leggo, Manukan Island. 
My girls
So clear!
The view was so great kan?! Subhanallah 
Huda & Ecah
Pulau Manukan punya condition and views in the water okay okay je, tak lawa and susah sket nak jumpa ikan bcs maybe ramai sangat orang. 

Snorkled for about an hour and half, and that beach boy called us for parasailing!!!!!! While waiting for our turn, we met a cute boy that sit the next row from us in the flight! Yea, you gonna meet the same person again and again. 
Pls la focus dekat muka takut ecah.
This ride costs us RM 180/per 2 person but that cute uncle gave a discount..... 
"Kalau ramai naik saya bagi discount" 
"Ye, kami semua nak naik" 
"Okay, saya bagi rm 150 lah"
"Uncle, saya malas la nak cari 5 ringgit, bagi rm 70 je la sorang" 
"Ha okay la boleh boleh" 
Ended up when we arrived the island, they dont even remember the price pon -.-

This ride lasts for 3 - 6 minutes if im not mistaken. Dia akan bawa bot laju gila, so that you will fly tinggi gila then jatuhkan korang dalam air and it repeats for 3 times camtu. Sumpah, best gila! Worth the money! 
FUN IN THE SKY 
   Then, we went to Pulau Sapi. We shared a table with a super-friendly japanese couple. Ecah showed her skills by introducing her name, asked permission to go to the toilet in japan language (sebab dia kata dia selalu pergi tandas waktu kelas jepun) ((sensei Tajul should be proud of her)), they showed us their pictures travelling other countries and shared their experiences on how they loved Malaysia that it was the third time they came here. Baik uncle, aunty jujur je sebab Malaysia murah en. 
View from my place

     Dekat Sapi, air dia tak dalam sangat, boleh cecah kaki so the tall girls decided to not to wear their safety jacket. Aku taknak pakai sebab pening. Seriously, pening gila. I think i have mabuk laut or whatever that makes me can't even stay longer than 30 minutes in the water. So, akak jaga beg jela kat atas. For me its crazy they can stay and play in the water for 2 hours. Tak pening ke siot. 
cheeky aina!
Me & Nuha
My two bam bam 
Goodbye and thank you for the memories! 
Before naik apartment, me and nuha went to the nearest shopping mall to withdraw some money and bought a bingsu! 

Tempat makan viral gerai kuning. 
We walked for 20 minutes to get here and had our delicious, tempting seafood-based dinner at this gerai. Me and Muna even ordered extra chili crab (excuse us, pelahap tiada tandingan).

Went for a souvenier survey at Pasar Filipina and lepak at starbucks while waiting everyone. Starbucks dekat Sabah tutup pukul 11 ya. Yes, 11 pm. 

and the next day was my birthday!

Day 3 : #spirigrosurfsabah

Day 3 started! Cmon, tunaikan solat subuh anda dalam keadaan sejuk.
Temperature taken during that night. Waktu pagi 8'c siao. 
I still remember when  I asked Huda for kiblat and then she said, "oh no 3". So I prayed like usual lah kan, and Moshi solat after that using the same kiblat as I did. Then, suddenly someone whispered to me "Weh asal Moshi solat hadap sana?" "Yelah, tu la no 3" RUPANYA ARAH NO 12 KAMI DUA DUA LAIN, LAIN KALI TANYA ARAH NO 12 DIA DEKAT MANA. I laughed so hard because of that incident. 
We went for morning stroll because who the hell want to sleep after subuh when you're in travel. Managed to catch beautiful sunrise in cold weather.

Fresh and colourful flowers!   
same pattern pants and pose aint make you guys cuter 
the whole squad 
  Pagi pagi lagi abang Farid dah tanya "baik-baik sahaja ke malam tadi? rumah lain semua kena kacau". I swear i cursed a lot to him last night. But when I reminisced all of his efforts, in making sure the electricity and toilet were functioning, asked iron board from the counter bcs we cant live in tudung konyok (jaga imej pls), i thanked him so much (there's a lot of appreciation paragraphs for him after this, be ready). We took some pictures around the chalet, overlooking the magnificient mountains and we're off to the next destination.

  Stopped at Sabah Tea Plantation. Huda really wanted to try the scones, so we had another little breakfast there. Ordered an over priced tea for 9 persons, yea i rolled my eyes to my friends (why did u guys bought this drink, it tastes the same?) but at the end, laughed to myself bcs i have to pay more than anyone else because i cant hold myself from ordering an ice-cream! And, I never felt even more worthy in purchasing an ice-cream other than this. Rasa syurga. Melampau. 
Cannot stand of their annoying-ness? SAME 
  The next stop was Ecah's favourite. Highlight of the trip for her. We were so chill and rilekkk before entered the fish section, and screamed out LOUD right after that because the fishes were damn big! I thought the fish's size would be like at the fish spa at the mall, but dem man this was the boss! Sorry abang Farid for making u ashamed of us that other tour guide asked him, "Itu budak budak kamu ke?" :'p
They seriously can move on from back pack to hand bag right now. 
Chillin by the pool at the hotspring. 
In the Muzium Rama-rama if im not mistaken. 
Behave sket Nuha. 
Okay. This is the most annoying part that i think we've wasted so much time for it! So this was another attractions at the Ranau Hotspring. 
We decided to enter Butterfly Garden and Canopy Walkway. 
    At first, this thing really excite me that i know this canopy walkway thing will challenge my fear of height blablabla thats all i can think before i entered it. But right after that, this canopy walkway  has been the most annoying ever thing happened in this trip! 
1. We are not adventure-kinda girls. 
2. We haven't prepare our mental and physical to do hiking! 
   We ended up need to hike around 1 km ( i think? idk but its super long way to go!). I was so mad because they didn't even explain to us that we need to hike to get there and there's no sign board or anything that will remind you to not wear heels or wedges! The only thing he cares about is "Kalau bawak camera/phone kena bayar rm 5" Sorry uncle, but i rolled my eyes many times to him. Do we need to wear shorts and tank top with a blonde hair to get his explaination. Bcs i saw they only gave explaination to the foreigners.
    We seriously have no idea that we need to hike tinggi nak mampos because this was our first time, mannnnnnnnn. So, lesson learnt ; do some research and read reviews bfr going anywhere!  I swear i would be so much excited if i hike with trainers or even sneakers. 
I guess she wont dress up like this if she knows we need to hike. 
Tiga manusia yang kena tinggal kat belakang sebab lembab. 
allahu akhirnya sampai juga ke puncak ini. 
my fed-up face. 
   The next mission that day was to catch sunset at Karambunai! Its already 3.30 pm when we had our lunch, then we stopped at a Masjid to perform our prayers. Abang Farid brought us to a masjid that badly affected from an earthquake two years ago. It saddens my heart, that masjid remains unused since two years ago and still under construction. So lambat. 
   Wani put on her fav songs on replay, and all of us fell asleep while Abang Farid drove the van fastly (man, super fast!) to catch the sunset at 6.30 pm. Sadly, we didn't managed to catch it, but we had fun played with the luxurious sands (true so true, the texture was so diff with the Manukan one :p)

   After that, Abang farid sent us to Perdana Park, Tanjung Aru to watch musical water fountain! Again, being a tourist lol we screamed happily watching the sudden bursts of water, and sang a long with the song ; sayang kinabalu. Ya i know water fountain je pon. Its the little things that matter. 

   We had our dinner at random restaurant and prepared for tomorrow! Ada benda tiba tiba tidur satu katil dengan aku malam tu. Seram gak la. Figure out the next day, they called that "thing" as huda.
