Sarawak Trip

Gawai is here!! Nyirup Nyirup!! (Epi 6)

Previously on epi 4, I slept at 10pm while admiring the awesomeness of fireflies.

Like they always say, everything comes with a cost. The awesome view comes with a back ache. As we were visitors, there were no mattress for us. We were forced to sleep on thin Mat. (So thin it doesn’t add any comfort to the sleep). So, basically we were sleeping on hard wood planks.  T3T I thought my sleep was bad until…

It seems my P.A, Mel encountered a paranormal activity on the first night. She heard a little girl repetitively counting numbers from 1 to 9 in English in the middle of the night.  The scary part is that.. there’s no little girl in our house or 2-3 houses next to ours. If there is, she won’t be speaking in English. Jeng Jeng Jeng..

Then again, le P.A, Mel does not believe in paranormal activities or beings from underworld, and so she concluded that it was her brother who dream talk and pretend to be a little girl.  (which makes no sense at all, imo =..=)

May I know anyone here do not believe in ghost/devil/demon? and anyone here who do not believe in aliens?


Oh, Finally, it’s Gawai!!!!

Just like Chinese New Year or Raya, they visit doors to doors but in one big group, and everyone sits outside the house on Mat and starts chit chating, eating snacks and lots of drinking.


The owner of the door walked around with a bottle of liquor and a  glass. Every grown ups are require to drink the liquor in one shot. The number of shot depends on how many rounds the owner manage to make and get to you. XD

That’s the most awkward and funny moment. I can’t help to laugh at him in the end, sorry. XP

(actual speech quotes)

I didn’t see the dog after that. Maybe…

Le star of the longhouse.

Le stinky dog.

Oh, everyone like this dog though and another twin of his.

Wait what’s that behind it?

I didn’t know we have a political party branded product before this.


As there weren’t much families that came back for Gawai. The visiting lasts for a well only..

To kill time, we head over to the jetty to relax, read books and drawing..

It’s a very relaxing place to be, with the breeze, the view and also the calm river.

Speaking of calm river.. it’s actually very very dangerous..

P.A’s dad has warned me about it…

It seems my stupid P.A, do not know what it’s a warning and what’s superstitious. I actually hoped a crocodile will show up back then to teach her a lesson.

Speaking of crocodile attacks, just a few months ago, a guy was eaten by a crocodile in a town nearby when he had an urge and pooed by the river.


Because it was a big day, we decided to have a whole chicken for dinner.

So P.A Papa brought us to the farm to catch our dinner.

Hello chicken~

Thank you for this..

Oh Hello Monkey~ thank you for…

No, we did not eat the monkeys.


We had a night visit that night. It was an awesome experience to walk in the jungle in pitch black with only a torch. You never knows what you gonna step on. XD

The trip was only 15 minutes but..

Sighh.. sad case.

Well, that ends another night at the longhouse.

to be continued.. Finale tomorrow!!

P/S: Sorry for the grammar and spelling mistakes.

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. 😀


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?!!
