Escape to the beach at Pantai Sematan, Sarawak, Borneo

We managed to escape for some quiet time on evening to go to Pantai Sematan (Sematan Beach). It’s about an hour away from Kampung Sematan where we were staying. The beach is beautiful. The sand is soft and the coastline just goes on and on. There was nobody else there but us.

Sarawak really has some hidden gems. It is a tropical paradise.

Eid celebrations local ‘Kampung’ style

100% recycled kampung style home

I celebrated Eid with my friends and her family in their 100% recycled “Kampung” house which they bought from a abandoned plot. They transported the old wooden house to this new place that they bought. It is surrounded by nature. This morning I was woken up by the sound of roosters and geese fighting!

Last night, they had a non traditional BBQ dinner but it was followed by a customary display of fireworks. I called it the war of fireworks because in the distant plor of land, another family were playing with fireworks and we were competing with each other. After about an hour, we raised the white flag and admitted defeat. They had far more spectacular fireworks on display, but we benefited from the show.

This morning, my friend and her father took her kids and her sisters kids to Gua tempurung, the local Limestone Karst. It is also the largest one in Peninsular Malaysia. It is estimated to be around 250 and 400 million years old.

This celebration brought back fond memories of my childhood when my friend and I used to hang out together as kids.

Sketch of the day no 160: Lantern bug at Earth Lodge, Ulu Muda, Kedah, #Malaysia

This is such a funny creature. It’s called a Lantern Bug. I think it’s because the bug looks like it’s carrying a red lantern ;p It was spotted on a tree at Earth Lodge, Ulu Muda forest reserve, Kedah, Malaysia.
