【沙巴游】 Papar - Borneo Cultural Village

During one fine afternoon, I was invited to for a trip to Borneo Cultural Village (BCV) together with THP.

Located at Papar, a new cultural village is running their business to allow tourists and also the local to experience a bit of the Borneo natives lifestyle and tradition.

- Entrance to Borneo Cultural Village -

First impression was great! As if we were entering a real village and with ladies who were fluent with Chinese language for explanation while introducing various tribes which could be found in Borneo.

- Introduction -

Unlike some other cultural villages, BCV offers more than 5 tribes for guests to get know more about Borneo. As far as I remember, we can visit their Traditional Papar House, Traditional Brunei House, Chinese House, Murut House, Penampang House, Bajau House, Tidung House and others as well.

Here are some of the houses and local delicacies and activities that we shall expect when we visit BCV in near future. :) Do enjoy!

- Well designed village -

Clean and well managed area.

- Local delicacies (Lihing and Sago Worm) -

I definitely will not want to try those - Sago Worm. My younger sister and my dad tried them before. Eww...

- Ambuyat -

A local delicacy by the Bisaya/ Brunei Ethnic Group, and it is also can be found in Sabah and Sarawak.

- Blow ipe by  Murut Tribe -

We were able to blow the pipe as well! The pipe which made of huge tree trunk and turn into a blow pipe after weeks and weeks of burning process and etc. In Murut culture, blow pipe was used as a weapon to hunt for animals and their food!

- Tidung Tribe -

The process of fire burning with the native way.

- Bajau House : Playing the traditional instrument -

Beautiful music played by him!

- Traditional Bajau House -

- Traditional Dances -

Besides visiting to the various traditional houses, we have the opportunity to enjoy a few traditional dances and guests were invited to be apart as well!

- Traditional Dances - Murut -

- Poco- Poco -

A type of line dancing that certainly most favoured by guests!

- Lunch -

Simple yet delicious lunch provided. BCV do care about the needs of their guests. At BCV, we can have our meal at either one of the following restaurants - Serve No Pork Restaurant, Chinese Restaurant (with pork) and even at the Korean Restaurant.

That's the end of our trip to Borneo Cultural Village!

Lovely Vintage Dine by Fat Spoon Cafe @ Petaling Jaya

Remember sometime during August, Yinsbear and Mr. G brought me to a cozy vintage cafe located in PJ for a lunch date on my second day in KL.

Beautiful vintage cafe and Yinsbear even tagged me in facebook to introduce this cafe to me! A lovely yet interesting concept cafe. :) A small gathering or a closed event would be so nice if it was held there.


- The Entrance to Fat Spoon Cafe -

- Good Reads -

Its a MENU!! :D Story books been used as menu, Fat Spoon Cafe had there menu inside the story books.

- Beverages -

I had sweet ice blended lychee mint (in white with green leaves). I like the drink but it was a bit sweet, advisable not to consume by anti sugar person.

- Rice -

Yinsbear had the rice above (I've forgotten the name). She loves to eat and I love all the food hunt she brought me to! And btw, she love to feed her friends. :D

- Salmon Sandwich -

Surprisingly, sandwich should be bread and salmon. Instead of using normal bread, they used burger bun! The chunky apple made the Salmon Sandwich just heavenly. I totally love it!!! If I'm not mistaken, their fritters were made of pumpkin (I love pumpkin!) and not normal potatoes. I simply love how they prepare the dish.

- One corner at Fat Spoon Cafe -

Lovely couple sitting outside. Beneath the glass of the table we had our lunch was covered with animated newspapers print. How cute!

- Menu at Board -

- At another corner -

Designed the corner with vintage kitchen tools.

- Jackfruit Popiah -

Simply love the fried popiah with hint of ice cream! Nom Nom! :)

I love the cafe and I think you will love it too! Cheers~

 - 武夷山 (WuYi Mountain), 福建 (Fu Jian) -

Inspiring and impressed all of us from the outdoor theater show we have watched, freezing with temperature of 2C during the show, imagine the temperature getting low when the night getting darker.

Coffee Talk at PREGIO by Barista Caffe @ Metro Town, KK #CoffeeArt

Pregio closed Metro Town branch. Open a new outlet at BSA Kolombong & Plaza Shell.

It's time for COFFEE AGAIN! 

Located at one of the happening area in KK lately. Moreover, there's a number of new cafes/ restaurants operated at the food street of Metro Town as well.

Back to the Sunday evening while I was having my cup of coffee the other day, visited them for the first time and the surrounding of that cafe was quite cozy and it is a comfortable cafe for a long chat too.

- Pregio by Barista Caffe -

- Cappuccino @ RM10.00 and Local Fruits Waffle -

Despite of the price, their cappuccino was nice and especially in the evening with slice of cake. :)

The local fruits sound interesting when we referred to a lady at the cafe, love their friendly assistance. I think they would need more improvement on the waffle (which a bit dry) and maybe add some colourful fruits instead of only papaya and honeydew.

- Cappuccino -

- Pregio by Barista Caffe -

- Menu of PREGIO -

Two person we paid for RM32++.

Lovely cafe to hang out for the weekend. :)

BTW, I'm flying off to the mainland tomorrow for a long vacation! hehe :)

【沙巴美食】亚庇 - 千层蛋糕 Food in Sabah : Kota Kinabalu - Crepe Cake by Cafe De Vie, Lintas

We often heard about crepe cake, the layered thin pancakes with cream and fruits in between.

Finally, a new cafe in town named Cafe De Vie started their business few months ago and their star dessert is CREPE! One of the dessert that I would love to try for a long time.

Therefore, you know what I will do next! We went there on a Sunday afternoon for coffee chillin time. :)

- Rum and Raisin Crepe Cake and Hot Cappuccino -

I love the simple concept of the cafe, a very cozy cafe for a long chat too. The cappuccino wasn't sweet at all, which is good and add in sugar according to our preference.

As for the crepe cake, I like the soft texture of it, crepe wasn't sweet as well. Some may say their crepes wasn't nice, as what I could comment, something different and currently I have visited twice to the cafe and until I found the next cafe with delicious crepe, maybe by that time, it is suitable for me to comment which one nicer. ;) Frankly speaking, they haven't catch my attention that made me crave their crepes very much, yet.

By the way, maybe they could add a bit more on the rum! I didn't taste any rum during my first visit the other day.

However, I will be visiting them once in a while in the future. ;)

Hong Kong Part 10 -  如心海景酒店暨會議中心 (L'hotel Nina et Convention Centre), 荃灣 (Tsuen Wan), 九龙 (Kowloon)

Finally back in Hong Kong and it was the first time we traveled back to our hotel from airport with their bus transport, definitely one of the convenient method to reach our hotel after being advised by Uncle Tai. :)

- In the Public Bus -

I did mentioned before that I like to sit in a public transportation whereby we could enjoy the local scene/ lifestyle of one place. Indeed I had a good time enjoying myself with my eye while we were on our way. :)

- The Highway -

- Market -

- The Street -

Hong Kong is such a busy city.

A short trip from the airport to the last station (Tsuen Wan) of the bus we paid for, a short walk and we arrived at L'Hotel Nina et Convention Centre. Well managed hotel and definitely a good hotel to overnight with. Kid you not, it wasn't a norm that I will write a review for hotel I'm staying, exceptional for the good ones I encountered.

- L'hotel Nina et Convention Centre (on the left) -

The night view of L'hotel during one night after we had our dinner.

- First snap in room :) -

- Twin Bed Room -

The room just made us hesitate to leave them @_@. It was super cozy!! Single bed equivalent to queen size bed! :)

- Our view from 73rd Floor -

Amazing Kowloon View with fog!

- The Transparent Bathroom -

DON'T BE SURPRISE! It is normal to have see through bathroom in Hong Kong. Luckily there was a plastic cloth to cover up while we were having our bath in our room, but we still can see the person's shadow while he/she having their shower.

- Night View from 73rd Floor -

Beautiful scenery of Hong Kong like they always say.

- Room at 75th Floor -

We hang out at Uncle Tai/ Aunt Rosa room on the second day, it was amazing with perfect sea view!!

- View from 75th Floor -

Our room was upgraded and so do Uncle Tai and Aunt Rosa, their room was amazing!! I guess their room is honeymoon suite if I'm not mistaken. It's like TV screen in front of the bed.

- Sea view of Hong Kong -

- Tea Talk at 75th Floor -

L'hotel was great and definitely cost a boom when we were there.

I wish to visit Hong Kong again and hope I have the chance to overnight at L'hotel in the future! :)
