Jakarta, Indonesia : Great Shows by Ocean Dream Samudra (Jaya Ancol)

Indonesia Part 7 (End) -  Ocean Dream Samudra, Jakarta.

MORNING INDONESIA!

It was our last day in Jakarta before we left. Mr. Han brought us to the well known recreation park and we did enjoy ourselves with all the shows being performed, the crew really did a great job in managing the recreation park and the creatures there.


- Ocean Dream Samudra -

"Ocean Dream Samudra features several animal shows, a small aquarium, and a 4D theater. The trained animal shows include a dolphin show and sea lion show. The 4D theater projects 3D image movies with sensations such as cool breezes and water sprays located inside a large building with Mesoamerican pyramid theme. On 2011 Ocean Dream Samudra will be revitalized with the budget Rp.27 billion ($3.1 million). Ocean Dream Samudra now held "Under the Sea Musical Dance" attraction at Underwater Theater." - Wikipedia


- Interesting Variety Animal Show -

The first show we watched was variety animal show, interesting and funny. In fact, they speak Indonesian language when we were there. We were quite lucky that we are from Sabah, which we speak fairly like an Indonesian!


- Otters -


- Time Table -

We watched most of the show, however I missed the mermaid show (aka Underwater Theater)! :( Which I really would love to watch it! I went for nature call (washroom) that time. More over, our time was quite packed which we have to chase the time to watch the next show, to walk ourselves from one place to another.


- Sea Lion and Bird's Show -

Sea lions were cute and very friendly! The show still go on when there was rain, yea... We got dripped by rain. -_-


- Dolphins Show -

Jaw drop! the dolphins amazed me!


- 4 D Theater -

A show animated movie and we been splashed  by water too! Shaking seats. haha :D


- Pirates Show -

And the last show I watched was Pirates Show, they really did a great show to all of us! Well done! And there's freaking explosion too! Those stunts just WOW!

So, that's the final write up on my vacation in Indonesia, hope to see you soon, Indonesia!

Raya at Kuala Penyu, Sabah! (Borneo Tempurung Seaside Lodge & Binsulok Nature Resort)


It was my first visit to Kuala Penyu and this time would be together with Bae's friends and family! :)

Took us approximately one and a half hour to reach Kuala Penyu and a few minutes to reach our destination, a Malay friend house for Raya.


- Local delicacies -

Those were the delicacies that we had during Raya, Ketupat, Chicken Curry, Lemang, homemade cookies and more. What can I say is RAYA IS ALL ABOUT FOOD! We even had a great meal at Tuaran on the second day of Raya at my dad's ex colleague house while the rain was quite heavy outside! 

I was also surprised that one of my dad's ex collegue's daughter followed me on Instagram (@meitzeu) as well! Both of us were surprised!!

 
 
- Durian -

Besides the cookies and curry, we had FRESH PICK UP DURIANS!! The taste and the flesh just melt us away. Delicious bitter sweet durians. We also bought some back to K.K. with price of RM5.00 per KG!

Driving far from the city allow us to buy many fresh fruits with cheap prices!

We had good food and after that, we visited the beach nearby as well.


- Borneo Tempurung Seaside Lodge -

Very calm and quiet beach along the seaside. Borneo Tempurung Seaside also offer overnight package too. Certainly it would be perfect for a getaway from the city.


- Borneo Tempurung Seaside Lodge - 
 
I love the landscape and design of the seaside lodge, it really calm our mind with the breezy air around. Here is an entry writen by Ashley on Borneo Tempurung Seaside Lodge, she was lucky to have a great stay at Borneo Tempurung Seaside Lodge.

And we visited Binsulok Nature Resort too!


 - Lodge -

We heard people having their karaoke session at the resort. There's also teenagers who play at the beach too. 


- Bisulok Nature Resort -

  

- The Lodge -

I do love the design of Malay house, it does bring the local to this resort too.Private lodge for a stay!


- But first, have a #Selfie -

It was a fun visiting to Kuala Penyu for the first time. :) 

I even had a cup of drink just sitting next to the river for the first time, not beach area, just RIVER at the kopitiam. :D

Happy weekend!

Beautiful Sunset at Signal Hill, Kota Kinabalu 沙巴升旗山之黄昏 #KKCity #Sabah

It was my first to sit in and enjoy the sunset of KKCity from our familiar Signal Hill during last weekend.

Signal Hill a.k.a. Bukit Bendera is known for having one of the best view of Kota Kinabalu city.

 
- Egg Yolk -

They often said “夕阳无限好, 只是近黄昏” (Sunset ended within minutes), good things just ended with blinks of eyes. :)

Bae was kind of worried about me last week, it seems like I was having bad week and bad temper the whole freaking week. (haha :D). And Bae decided to end our week with the beautiful sunset of #KKCity, in fact, it was his first as well!

And here are some of the photos that I took during our chill out time at Signal Hill.


- Breathtaking Sunset -

Bae just praised how beautiful it was. :) And more over, the best thing was the person accompanying us beside. (haha :D He made me laugh so much even when I was being emotionally down.)


- Kota Kinabalu City View -


- Carbonated drink and sunset -

If only the cafe can be improved even more!!



- Burger for a try - 

Price is reasonable and the priority not for this one! Do enjoy the Sunset view with your love one. :)

Incredible Bazaar Ramadhan Buffet by Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu!

It had been years that I heard about the good reviews on the buka puasa buffet by Le Meridien K.K. (LMKK), the varieties that we can select from all the dishes presented! Definitely made us wonder and what I could say is

 "I DON'T KNOW WHERE I SHOULD START WITH!"

 Here are some of the snaps shots of what we could expect from LMKK for the marvelous "sungkai" buffet!



 - Malay delicacies -

There's friends who are interested to try the buffet by LMKK, and the Bazaar Ramadhan Buffet will be held from 29 June, 2014 to 27 July, 2014 at 6.00 pm - 10.30 pm. Good to make a reservation earlier and there's Early bird vouchers at RM109.00 nett too! Just contact them for more information and bookings!
 

- Dim Sum Corner -


- Fried Corner -

The fried corner is one of the recommended one for those who love to eat fried food, FRIED CRABS anyone?

Beside these, there's Indian Corner too, which is a NEW corner by LMKK!


- The best of TAMPATAN CORNER -

The native delicacies! Hinava, Tuhau are those must try! I love hinava, where slices of fish being marinated and LMKK did a great job with the hinava, all of us love it so much!


- Japanese Corner -

Udon soup.

This is only one part of the dishes presented, from the reception and walking towards our seats, were food and food and nothing but FOOD!

From the previous experience during my normal day buffet, the place was tables and chairs for guests, you can imagine how much effort that LMKK have put in during Ramadhan month. The largest Bazaar Ramadhan Buffet.
