Annyeong Haseyo! The Bab's Korean BBQ @ Likas, Kota Kinabalu

Another round of delicious Korean Cuisine during one fine night.

While it was Bae birthday, we went to The Bab's for a nice Korean dinner in town, some where where not many people would go. 

- The Bab's -

It was our first time there, such a pretty environment at the restaurant, painted in purple and white. :) We have option to have our dinner outdoor and indoor, I'm a bit reluctant to sit out. Way to hot to dine in at Korean restaurant while we stayed in a humid environment 24/7 here.

- Appetizer/ Starter -

So many to eat while waiting for the main dishes!

- Pork Bibimbap - 

By looking at it's presentation, THEY WIN IT!


- Hot Plate Bibimbap -

In fact, I love Bibimbap and we had two pots of bibimbap in addition with a plate of fried pancake. Over eating that night for two of us, but it was delicious!!

- Bibimbap - 

Stirred Bibimbap! Both of them were scrumptious, tender meat as for the pork one. Stirred all of it together with their sauce, can't wait for another bite.

- Kimchi Pancake -

Kimchi pancake by The Bab's still acceptable, maybe it wasn't what I have expected. I tried a few Korean style pancake in town, I liked it and I'm still searching for the best one in town!

Overall, dinner at The Bab's was GOOD, however, the guy who took our order was a bit "gangsta" styled, I was totally surprised with the way he talk while taking our order. (No patient) *Boo* 

I paid two person in total of RM78.00++ that night, gosh.

Mt. WuYi (武夷山), China (中国) : 大红袍茶园, 一线天, 风洞与虎啸岩 (Tea Garden, Tread of Sky, Wind Cave and Tiger Roar Cliff)

China Part 4 - Mt. WuYi (武夷山), Northern FuJian (福建)

Hello :)

After our rest at the hotel, the next destination were more towards sight seeing and tea garden, non the less, we had so much walk again!

Well, I'm not going to sit in front my laptop for long, my waist/ back is hurt for days and even today. :( Hope it will recover before my trip!! Gosh!

Do enjoy all the photos here. Can you feel and see what I see?

- 大红袍 (Direct translation : Red Rob Tea) -

And we just walk till the end....

- That's the tea up there! -

The precious tea that the China categorized under world heritage.

- The Tea -

- Various name of tea -

We passes by various kind of tea at the tea garden, some of the even named after the surrounding of the tea being grown. "Can't see the sky" etc etc.

- The Crafed  Rock -

- The cultivation of Da Hong Pao -

Due to high demand and the well known tea from that area, those are Da Hong Pao tea trees which in the end will be selling at the markets.

- A Tread of Sky -

- Art -

Tell him your name and he will draw those mountains with our name!

- A Tread of Sky-

- The Cave -

- 一线天 A Tread of Sky -

It was the aftermath of earth quake by one huge mountain, the place was named Tread of Sky because when we look above, there's only one line that we can look through the sky. 

We had a walk and would like to finish it if possible, but the person in front of us was afraid of walking till the end due to the staircase and the cliff getting narrow when we walk through the end. Way too dark somehow.

- 风洞 Wind Cave -

I think the place were always breezy, that's why being named Wind Cave.

- Amazing mother nature -

That's all for today, I'm going to have some rest!

Mt. WuYi (武夷山), China (中国) : Stage Show of DaHongPao (印象大红袍山水实景演出)

China Part 3 - Mt. WuYi (武夷山), Northern FuJian (福建)

Our trip to FuJian was inclusive of a stage show by one of the world most recognised producer, Zhang Yi Mou 张艺谋.

In fact, what I can only say is THE SHOW WAS AMAZING with 360 degree of outdoor stage show. Blending in with the background of the real mountain of WuYi and allowing us to "teleport" ourselves to Song Dynasty 宋朝.

- The Main Entrance - 

We enjoyed the cold weather while walking from the restaurant nearby after we had our dinner.

- Souvenir Shop -

- The Entrance -

- Backdrop -

One of the backdrop at the outdoor stage.

Maybe some of you might wonder what is DaHongPao 大红袍, it was name of the precious tea, well known from Mt. WuYi. Back then and even until now, Tea plays a huge role in China people lifestyle. DaHongPao also been classified under the "The World Intangible Cultural Heritage" (中国乌龙茶申报世界“非物质文化遗产). 

Back to the show, the show brought us way back to Song Dynasty, the calm lifestyle of that friendly village and forgetting the stressful lifestyle of ours. Lovely music, amazing show with hundreds of presenter. *Clap hand*

Here are some of the photos that I have secretly took. 
(*Cough Cough* secretly)

- The Outdoor Show -

It was freezing while we were watching the show, shivered so much even though we worn gloves and thick attires. Gosh! But, it was a great experience and all of us should watch such stage show if we happen to visit China.

- The Ticket -

Their rubbish, my treasure. I still keep them. :)

And now, my wish list before my China trip again on this month!! ZR1500 by Casio!!! I want to have a good night photoshoot!!!
