Cuti Cuti Malaysia - Labuan

Labuan....wow, I have not been to Labuan for awhile now!! It's been almost a year since I went there! Time really passes by so quickly...

We took the 7.30am ferry to Labuan. Semangat eh.. My friends from KB left around 4am! And some of them even woke up at 2.45am!! That's what I call "SEMANGAT BERABIS"...hehe... U know who you are.... and they came to pick me up at 6am! Can't believe they were dead on time! Normally they will be late by 30mins or more!

Normally we went to Labuan for clubbing..hehe..and of course some shopping although there is nothing much for me to shop. The girls normally like to go to the market and buy udang kering, ikan masin and some other things lah. This trip were a bit different.

We rented a car which cost us RM160 for 24 hours rental. There were 8 of us so we rented a Toyota Avanza. I drove the car and driving in Labuan is not that bad really. Just like driving in Brunei..lots of idiots motorist! oppss...didn't mean it..hehe...

Being a first timer to drive in Labuan, we do need a map which was provided by the car rental. We went to the WW II Memorial Cemetary, Pohon Batu, Tanjong Aru, Tanjong Ketam and few other places. Our intention is to drive all the way to Tanjong Ketam and find the famous seafood restaurant there. If you have watched, Jalan Jalan Cari Makan in TV3, well Tanjong Ketam was one of the chosen eatery. Good thing we went there early to book a table for 8! We were told by the owner that, it is really a popular place. We ordered Sweet and Sour Crab, Fish cook with????? (can't remember..who cares..it tasted good!), Kangkong and Prawn cook with ???? ..hehe...



oh oh..before we went to Tanjong Ketam, we drove to Pohon Batu. It's an old village with beautiful long stretch of beach! While driving along the beach, I saw a couple "making out" ... with cloths on of course...hehehe... Strange enough my eyes catches those things easily! hehehe... We then stop by and have our afternoon tea. We ordered satay, cucur and also their keropok lekor! Most of us had young coconut juice. The beach is clean and lots of people too...

After a tiring drive, we head back to Beta Apartment and have our rest and shower before we head off for our dinner at Tanjong Ketam. It's about 20-25 mins drive from the Apartment. When we got there, the breeze was so nice and you can smell the scent of the sea. The dishes were served really quick. The food were excellent! Finger licking good! We were there for almost over an hour but we finish the food in less than 30mins! Greedy pigs! hehe

Just after we finish the dinner, one of our friends felt really sick and start vomiting! It has nothing to do with the seafood cos she felt sick before the dinner. Got in the car and drove straight back to the apartment.

Our night activity is to go to Pop Inn and enjoy the live band and also not forgetting our intoxicated drinks ^_^ Pop Inn is our favourite pub. Used to go to Jupiter 8 but it's getting boring there. Our sick friend didn't join us although she insist of going despite her upset stomach! Kesian...rugi rugi....Ah well, there is always a next time...

Went there around 10pm and we were lucky to get seats just infront of the live band. Ordered our drinks and one of new friends who are new to intoxicated drink got drunk so fast and collapse! hehehe...We left a bit early than usual cos we wanted to send our drunk friend back to the apartment. We don't want any unwanted things happen to her.

We had a wonderful time in Labuan although we didn't have any seat in the ferry heading back to brunei! We have bought the ticket in Brunei and was really pissed when we were told that the ferry is full! So many bruniean were pissed off. We bought it early, that mean the seats are meant for us! What happen is that they still sell the ferry tickets knowing it's already full! So we end up sitting in an open space located at the back of the ferry. Good thing it didnt rain!

To summarise my trip to Labuan, it's a good trip and wish to go around labuan again on my next trip there. Anyone wanna join? hehe
