[Activities] Mulu Pinnacles (4D3N) Trip 2017 - Part 1

I've lost count to the number of times I've re-written this post, I can't seem to complete it.  It has been a struggle but I'm gonna make sure I complete this 😂.  To those waiting for this post, I sincerely apologize for the delay.  Post 1 is getting longer hahaha help!

Mulu airport

Where to begin?

If you're planning to do the Pinnacles, it is highly recommended to book in advance since there's limited slots available at Camp 5.  Allocate 3 days 2 nights for this tour.  Minimum 3 person per tour.  But if you're going solo, don't worry, they will group you up with other solo travelers :) I'll include a summarize costing for this trip at the end of Part 2 of this post.
 
The return ticket from Kota Kinabalu to Mulu costs RM295.32 via MasWing and I had booked it early, my trip was 5 days after TMBT.  I don't know what I was thinking when I agreed for that trip but I was excited for it.  I was confident about my recovery haha.  Optimist!

Flight to Mulu

There are 2 available flights to Mulu from Miri in a day and 1 from Kuching.  Flights will transit at Miri for immigration clearance (for at least 20 minutes).

My flight was originally scheduled for a 55 minutes flight but somehow it was cancelled (without notice).  Thankfully, friend had informed me earlier (around August, mind you) I had sort it out with Malaysian Airlines.  So, that's about an extra 30 minutes to Mulu.

[Activities] Climbing the highest mountain in Malaysia

Akinabalu
Have you climb the highest mountain in Malaysia? It was my third climb.  Why stop at one?

I have always thought that I'm an adventurous person growing up.  I would climb trees and was active in sports (running short distance mostly).  I had, though, probably gone through a phase growing up and shut myself out from the world somehow.   I hated everything then.  I guess things do change, for the better.  I've discovered myself  again and have started opening up to the world.  

Whenever I wanna try something new, I'll overthink and  would probably find ways to avoid it.  Not unless I have paid for it, then it would be impossible to back out.  That was the first time I climb Mount Kinabalu in 2012 via Mesilau Trail.  I never knew booking a slot/slots was that tedious (especially for a big group) till I did the booking myself.  I've also climbed in 2013 via Timpohon - Summit Trail.

[Events] Tomei 50th Anniversary: Xi Fu Wedding Collection Fashion Walk 2018


Tomei is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year and I happened to be showing my sis a photo of Tomei's new Majestic Celebration collection 2018 (this is so pretty, I kid you not, but it wasn't available for showcase yet.  Maybe will be arriving this week) which I thought looked cute on Instagram 4 days ago and she directly called her contact at Tomei Suria Sabah to check it out, found out about an event happening on Saturday and RSVPed when I said I can bring her.  It's the Luxe Heritage: Xifu Wedding Collection Fashion Walk, showcasing Tomei's sets of gold and silver with diamond wedding collection, and life bridal's wedding dresses.

[Activities] Murug Turug Eco Resort

It's funny how social media plays a major role in our daily life.  Like how much time a person spent being online?  I know how it feels like not being online for 4 days (Mulu trip, Digi! YUDo this? I survived, will try to finish writing about that, it's in my draft since last year). 


You know that feeling of seeing something so beautiful and wanting to be there?  I have seen a lot and this is one of the places in my bucket list of places to visit.  I also love following food bloggers/instagrammers hehe.

Been so grateful with having people who share the same sentiment about exploring nature and  totally enjoying the moment.

Weekend Buffet at Avangio Hotel Kota Kinabalu

Once in awhile, we would wanna pamper ourselves with a good meal.  Having a good diet is important but imagine having the same meal with the same portion everyday of the week, how boring.  (I was on an oat diet for a year before, and the thought of oats just makes me sick now ).  I try to workout at least 4 times a week and not feel guilty with food consumption (I have gone through a strict diet regime before, I just don't have the same mindset anymore).  Lemme just EAT HAPPY!

I remember having 2 times a month cheat day and it always falls in the weekend ❤ you know how we love the weekend.  Here's an option to enjoy your weekend.

[Activities] Bukit Bongol, Kota Belud


Hiking has been the in thing since last year with the numbers of spots that you couldn't have imagine exist.  Kota Belud alone probably have over 30 spots to explore.  I have been to certain parts of Kota Belud, for hiking and camping (Kowatuan and Mt. Minodtuhan) but have yet to visit every single one of these places.

Recently, I'd planned a day trip with friends to the famous Bukit Bongol.  Now you must be wondering why this hill in my bucket list, it has been my bucket list since last year for hills to climb.  Not because it is challenging (the dog made it!) but how it will look like in a photo, we all know how everyone love beautiful photos 😂.  There are 10 peaks in of Bukit Bongol.  Yeap, you heard me, 10!!! Imagine multiple camel backs.

There are 3 known starting point to get there:-
via Pirasan
via Kinasaraban
via Kg. Mandap
