Tiring But Fun Day Out - Part II - Ulu Belait

Let me ask you this question...How many of you have been to Ulu Belait like Melilas, Sukang and Apak Apak? How many of you have seen crocodile in front of your eyes? I don't mean from the Zoo! How many of you have been in the "Temuai" aka long boat and see the beautiful nature, virgin jungle and so on...

I was at all these 3 locations yesterday and boy we enjoy the trip! The weather was just on our's just cool and cloudy! Perfect for a day out!

It has been raining for the past few days and the water level have risen and eventually flooded some of the houses near to the river. This is very common for the local and that's why they have stilt houses. From the last time I was there, the river have risen about 2 meter! Kinda scary to know how deep the river can be!

Our first trip was to Sekolah Rendah Melilas. It took us about 2 hours to get there. There isn't any soul there as it is school holiday at the moment. For your info, there are less than 20 students in this school. Nothing much over here, just a school and long house.

Next, we went to Sekolah Rendah Sukang. There isn't any student here as well. We do hear voices but not sure where it is from. Hmmmmm....ah well... The school is flooded!

Our last destination was Kg. Apak Apak. There isn't anything here. There used to be people staying here but everyone have move to the city life.

It was quite tiring after being on the boat for a total of 4 hours. It's worth the travel though. My next destination is Temburong. This time I will be going to Belalong UBD Study Field Centre.
