Gawai Longhouse Sarawak Trip

Sweet Revenge at the Longhouse (Episode 5)

Episode 1, 2, 3, 4,

Previously on episode 4, a sagging boobs nanny wanna ‘peek’ me bath. XD

Actually, I didn’t bath there but had all my baths at the waterfall nearby. It’s actually the same thing, the only difference is everyone is bathing together which makes it less awkward.

The journey took around 10 minutes, through the forest and no, there’s no wooden path like the one in the photo.

The villagers use water from the top of the waterfall (not this small waterfall, there’s few levels up the hill) for their daily activities. I heard they gonna use it to generate electricity to the longhouse in near future.

back at the long house..after the bath

Revenge is sweet. 😀

Hohohoho

Someone is making “Tumbok”..punched potato leaves? 😛

Our dining “table”.

Firewood for our “stove”

This is where we used to kill time during the evening before dinner.

We are warned to not stay near the river as there might be hungry crocodile around.

Sun setting. Time to head home.

…………………………………….

:: Later that night ::

It will be my first time to sleep in a Longhouse. First thing, I noticed is..mosquitoes! Although, they closed all the windows and doors, a few of this fella managed to sneak in the house.

PA(Personal Assistant) Mel saw me blew a mosquito away instead of killing it and started questioning me. I lectured her bout my theory.. then suddenly..a bug land on her.

it turns out it’s not a Mosquitoes. OAO Poor firefly. More and more fireflies kept sneaking into the “house” after that and within minutes we have a Milky Way in the house.

Oh yea, they sleep early when there’s nothing to do. There’s no TV in the place we stayed.

To be continued..

Next on Longhouse trip.. I heard something last night?!!

Gawai Longhouse Sarawak Trip

City cat culture shock at le Longhouse (Epi 4)

Previously, Longhouse trip…sagging boobs ARGHH my eyes!!!

.

.

After that, we reached my friend’s pintu. Longhouse are divided into Family rooms called Pintu(door), one door is for a family.

First thing I noticed upon arriving is that everyone here speaks Iban language. Abuden. :|They do speak Sarawak Malay/Sarawak language or even English for some but with heavy Iban slang in it. I can hardly understand too.

Most of the time, I have no idea what they are talking about. All I did was smile. XD

I did picked up a couple of words like.

Nama – What

Makai – Eat

Jalai – Walk

Pulai – Back

EngKa – Don’t Want

Ka – Want

Manok – Chicken

Janik – Pork/Pig

Air Wom – Waterfall

Nyirup – Drink

Tambak – Stupid

Lol most of the words are related with what I did over there. Food, Bath & scolding PA. LOL

—————————————–

The longhouse we stayed are really very isolated, due to the little amount of people who stay around this area, no basic utilities are provided here as it is not profitable to do so.

My PA has warned me about this and asked me to prepare entertainment of my own for these few day. Actually, I wasn’t the only city cat there, the PA’s brother has not been visiting the longhouse for almost 10 years. So he too are not used to it.

The first thing he did when he arrived was…

=.= Sibling alike. Overly Attached Girlfriend and Boyfriend.

————————————-

PA Papa also offered me his phone but…

*writing my will*

PA papa~~ Why you kept pouring cold water on me. T3T *i iz foreveralone cat*

Seriously, I was having a bad luck, one of the family is having a wedding dinner back in the cat city during Gawai, hence most of the families are not coming back longhouse for Gawai. 🙁

Beside that, the solar battery to our Pintu was spoiled. 😐 So the laptop I brought with me is just a piece of useless metal there. GG.com.

Lucky, I had my camera with me. So I went around and took so photos..

The Verandah where everyone hangouts because it’s freaking hot in the Pintu.

The bags you seeing in the photo are all Rice. There are so many rice that you can eat for months to year. As the storage hut is under renovation, hence they kept all the rice at the Verandah.

Le inside of the Pintu.

The traditional longhouse. No partition, no rooms, one big room for all. Living room, bedroom, kitchen, dining room in one, 4 in one combo XD. Because the kitchen is in the same room, the room is usually very hot when they are preparing food.

The source of heat in the room. Our traditional old school stove. XD Cooking food the old school way because gas stove is too mainstream. hahaha

What I’m seeing next is the most shocking part of the room.

Behold, the toilet, balcony and bathroom. XD

What’s so shocking?

Well…

For unknown reason, I feel insecure..

China Trip

Good Bye! Guang Zhou!!

Part 1 and part 2 here.

 Last post for Guang Zhou yo!  Sorry, there’s little pictures to share as my camera battery went die and all these photos are taken with my phone.

Whenever I travel to another country, there’s two things I must do. First is to check out their McDonald and KFC. Each country tends to have their own special version burgers. In Guang Zhou McD, they have Smoked Bacon Cheese Chicken Deluxe burger and Portuguese styled Pudding Mc Flurry.

The burger was awesome, just 2 additional add ons to the existing Mc Chicken Deluxe gives another degree of awesomeness to it.

So gonna go buy a normal McDeluxe and add cheese and bacon to it. XD

The Pudding McFlurry, is just Mc Flurry with caramel and Oreo bits.

Then, the second thing I must do is to visit the supermarket/mart or 7-11 of the country and check out their potato chips. Same like McD and KFC, every countries will have their snacks customized to fit the taste of their people.

And here I present you Lemon Flavor Potato Chips, now I shall eat like a sir. XD

I found out is a paradise for business people. If you have a shop, then you must visit Guang Zhou. The whole city is a trading hub. There are many buildings with wholesale suppliers. For example, this Nan Fang Building is a 9 floors building with mobile phone accessories, you can get lots of stuffs here at very low price.

Not suitable for tourist like us, so we got bored…

Walking aimlessly..

If you look carefully, you will noticed all the sky in the pictures are cloudy and looks like it gonna rain. But in truth, it is so badly polluted and hazy that the sun is blocked. :/ There’s no sign of blue color in the sky.  

Got bored and decided to go the nearest mall..

while we’re in the train…

You know sometimes people go up to you and ask you to donate some money for them in exchange of toys or something. Well, people here do it differently, they will secretly put the stuffs on you first and have you pay (donate) for it.  =.= Crazy.

What’s more crazy is that when Chicken Jack shook her hand off, the Fox still persists to “hand cuff” him until Chicken Jack have to raise both hands in the air to stop her.

Even in Malaysia, we don’t donate when sometimes they appears to be a scam with the fake Id and stuffs. Here in Guang Zhou, it is obviously a scam lor!!

It was such an awful experience, we felt so disgusted and wanted to leave this place as soon as possible but unfortunately the flight is on the next day. =.=

=.=

At that moment, I felt like to take a rocket and leave that place immediately.

Wasn’t in a mood to visit the store after that. We went for a lunch and some desserts..

These are from a franchise dessert shop from Hong Kong and famous for the mangoes which explains all these mangoes. For me, it tasted like any other mangoes XD No different.

Just right after the dessert, I noticed something…

Yea, that’s what I heard before I visit China. I was told that it is a norm to just spit on the floor in China.

but…

but…

=.= seriously..i cannot brain this..

Couldn’t take it longer and didn’t know where to go. We went for a karaoke session to kill our time.

The Karaoke here is damn cheap, less than RM10 for a single room only for an hour. No extra charge if you’re not ordering anything. And the songs are very up to date but only Chinese songs available.

After the karaoke session, we went for our dinner. Actually, we’re not really hungry but just to kill time.  

After the shocking scene where one guy scooped stuffs from the drain, we had all our meals in the malls and restaurant. And some how we ended up in this restaurant serving Chinese Tea in a wine glass.

You know you’re in deep shit when the restaurant serve the most cheapskate tea in a classy tall stand glass.

After seeing the tea, we did not dare to order anything that might be expensive like fish etc.

I’m not really fancy of the food since I have been eating Chinese food quite often in Malaysia.

So it’sjust a better version ones.

After the meal, we lurk around the mall before I insisted to go back to Bei Jing Street for another round of MOS before we leave Guang Zhou.

and the fox strikes again…

and this time cutting my queue!!!

and pretended nothing happens!!!! RAWRRRR!!!!

GARGH!!! As a gentleman, we didn’t pick a fight with him but instead verbally assault him in English. XD

I not sure whether he understands or not as most of the people here does not understand English much unless they are highly educated. If he does, he must be ashamed for what he had done as high education is nothing with such low morality.

Sometimes I think it’s an advantage to be a Malaysians as we know at least 2-3 languages.

 

Thanks to MOS. The awesomeness of the burger took our anger away.

Suddenly, I feel like taking a plane and fly to Singapore right now just for MOS Burger. XD

We headed back to the Inn.

Bought another potato chip, this chip is good. It’s Cucumber flavor.

It might sounds weird but the chips is very light and refreshing. ^^

A must try flavor.

.

.

The next day, we visited the one and only tourist spot over the few days..

The Chen Clan Ancestral Temple.  Actually, I have prepared and made a list of tourist spot to visit but our leader for the trip is not interested in all these historical stuffs which is why we keep visiting the malls. Le sad case.

After visiting this temple, I couldn’t agree more that it was a good decision to visit the malls instead.

The weather was very bad. The pollution, haze and the heat is killing our mood. @@

Took our last meal and we departed to the airport..

The gateway back to the real world. *tears up*

I have never miss home as much as this.
