Places In Kundasang feat gadisBUNGA

Alright, here is the few places in Kundasang we managed to visit with gadisBUNGA. Actually, I only managed to visit two places with her...the rest she went with my sister Just and a friend. Had to hurry back, my holidays application is not approved due to unexpected things (hohoho). Thank God gadisBUNGA understand my situation. Seriously, being 'short-cut' from your own holidays is totally not a cool thing!!


Okay, forget about that. Here is the few pictures from our holidays...

Our first pit stop is at Desa Dairy Farm which located at the Mesilau Plateau, Kundasang. Normally, the main purpose peoples come here is to learn how fresh milk processed from raw to finish product. If you want to experience the milking session, come early around 2.00pm. The milking session start at 3.00pm.

Although we really want to watch the session, we went there at 9.00am (wrong time my dear...hahaha). We heard that at 3.00pm, automatically all the cows lining up and ready for milking. Is it true? I guess we have to find it out on the next trip (~~)     

YES. Definitely don't forget to try Desa fresh milk. 
Available in two flavors, original milk and chocolate :)  

If the weather is good, you can see the Mt. Kinabalu clearly. Fresh cool air, breathtaking landscape in every wonder this place is very famous among wedding photographers :)

Our next pit stop is at Kundasang War Memorial, which was built as a tribute for the brave ones. This place has change a little from our last visit. I notice they had make some renovation here and there. Perhaps the most obvious one is at the top level, the Contemplation Garden. I am not sure whether I like it or not. I mean a place like this we should preserve and stick to the original design. Okay no hard feeling, it was just a thought (^_^)

Despite of all that, being here is still a good thing. Take some of your time to think about those who are willing to sacrifice themselves for the sake of the future.

Thats all for now. To find out more about the trip, visit gadisBUNGA page. I am sure she will do the full coverage :)

Enjoy your weekend (^_^)

Kundasang trip with gadisBUNGA 

Sumandak in the house :)

Alright, just a short update...

Like I mentioned yesterday, the secret finally revealed (hahahaha). It was a Kundasang trip with gadisBUNGA, one of my blogger friends. I was so excited finally I have the opportunity to meet her in person. All this while we just exchange comments on blog. When she told me about her plan to Kundasang, I am more than happy to accompany and show her around...

However, I was a little bit worried...I mean how are we going to treat each other without feeling awkward. But guess what, the moment I fetched her at the aiport...after greeting each other, we simply talk and talk like old friends (what a relieved). What can I say,  gadisBUNGA is very friendly (^_^)     

Eh, this entry should be a short one! haha...Alright, thats all for now. The next entry will be about places we managed to visit during the trip.

Till then, enjoy your weekend...

Jambatan Tamparuli

Jambatan Tamparuli is the famous landmark in Tamparuli. It is a long hanging bridge, in malay we called it jambatan gantung. The hanging bridge is immortalized in the Kadazandusun song called Jambatan Tamparuli, which composed and sung by Justin Lusah in the mid of 1970's.

Sungai Tamparuli

If you happen to visit Sabah, I mean Kota Kinabalu area...don't forget to try walk on this famous landmark of Tamparuli. However, if you are the 'gayat' type (like me) I suggest do not even try it. You will end up froze in the middle with a pale face and tears in your eyes...hahahahaha. Okay, just kidding!

Alright, here is the lyric of the famous song. For video music, look for it at You Tube. As I mentioned earlier, the song was originally by Justin Lusah but they are several local artists sing the song in their own version. Enjoy :)

Jambatan Tamparuli by Justin Lusah

Pak pak kangku doh
Sumunsui doh jambatan
Jambatan doh Tamparuli
Bakasut tinggi oku

Sumunsui doh jambatan
Jambatan doh Tamparuli
Pak pak kangku doh
Bakasut tinggi oku

Silaka no di kasutku
Naratu ilo jambatan
Tinggal poh doh sutakin
Nowit ku guminuli

Ontok di hari tiga
Tamu lo Tamparuli
Mingusuk poh hilo kadai
Mogihum do kasut tinggi

* gayat = afraid of heights

PS : Last week, we have this Kundasang trip with someone. With whom? Stay tuned to find out...
