welcome to Similajau National Park

we managed to hike up to the view point and to Tg. Lubok Padok

For those who love jungle trekking, Taman Negara Similajau located near Bintulu town is the ideal place to go. Just a 30 minutes from the town centre towards the Kidurong area and you’ll be greeted by blue waters and swaying lush green trees.

clear water and sandy beaches

beware of crocodiles, didn't see any but we did stumble across a snake

You can either go for a day trip or opt to stay over nite at the park it self. For the more adventurous, you can camp at the many camp sites along the stretch of the park. Since we were there on an impromptu visit, we can only take in the beautiful sights of the park and go for a short hike into the forest.

our journey start here

more bridges to cross

dense jungle to explore

up we climb and down we go

The 4 hours journey brought us into the dense jungle and out to a secluded beach with crystal clear water. It’s a very rewarding hike but we were almost died of exhaustion after we reach back to civilization.

If we had planned the trip earlier, we might even ventured out further into the very end of the park which gonna take 8 hours just to reach there. The park is a nice place to unwind from the hustle and bustle of the city except for the RM 10 entrance fee.

Min's Cafe located opposite Sinly Stationeries behind Park City Mall

It’s hard to find good Sarawak Laksa anywhere else except in Kuching. After much prayer, my effort finally came true in Bintulu. Min’s Café is located just opposite Sinly Stationeries behind Park City Mall. If you are expecting a full blown coffee shop, you’ll be disappointed since they only have a few stalls operating at the moment. It’s pretty quiet when we are there unlike other coffee shop on Sunday morning. I think this is due to its location and also it just opened recently. I went there upon recommendation from my friend and I really have to thank him for that.

Sarawak Laksa good till the last drop

The Sarawak Laksa served there are on par with those served back in Kuching. The soup is not too thick neither diluted and with the combination of the belacan paste provided, it’s just delicious till the last drop. After a bowl of the Sarawak Laksa, it really brings back the feeling of morning breakfast in Kuching. The lady owner is a bubbly lady; keep on asking me if it’s too spicy after seeing me sweating like a pig slurping the soup dry. I told her its just oomph!

Tanjung Batu

I found out that the favorite pastime for Bintulian (Bintulu folks) is going to the beach. There are a few beaches dotting the coast line of Bintulu and Tanjung Batu is one of them. It’s popular during the weekends and holiday since it’s only a few minutes away from town.

abstract on the beach

The beach is clean and the water is cooling. The whole stretch is dotted with trees and nicely landscaped gardens. There are even facilities like children playground, resting area and BBQ pit for a little picnic. Even if you don’t like the hassle to prepare your food, there’s food stalls around where you can sip fresh coconut under the swaying palm trees.

family fun on the beach

It’s a really nice place if you want to clear your mind or just enjoy the sunset as I did. A romantic stroll along the beach against the sun setting back drop is what I’m dreaming of now.

I finally did it! I did what most people wouldn’t dare to do. I gave my piece of mind to my BOSS! I just poured it all out and spill all the bad and injustice the company had done to me all these years. Not just me along but also all my colleagues in an indirect way. I think I reached a point where I just couldn’t just sit there and being incorrectly treated from all my hard works. I think I can say for myself that I’m a decent employee and I did all my duties diligently. It’s time for me to let them hear what I have to say and I did all these through e-mail (Just Follow Laws). Now….. if anyone out there who want to employ me please take me in as I think I’ll be jobless soon.

I’m in love with Bumblebee. Even though it’s just a mechanical robot, it really shows a human side of it for his devotion and care towards human. The sadness and fear that Bumblebee shows when he was caught really makes me think that he is more human than human itself. I think everyone of us would love to have a car like that.

I’ve been playing with Transformers figurines since I was at a very tender age. I can still vividly remembered that I would wake up early on Sunday morning just to watched the cartoon series and pestered my parents to buy me the figurines each time we passed by the toy shop. I would do anything to get my hands on Optimus Prime, Bumble Bee or any of them. At last my love for Transformers has been transformed into the big screen. I just finished watching it with my friends and all I could say is WOW! There’s blend of action, comedy and drama all executed seamlessly. I would give it a rating of 9/10! Autobots move out!
