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.

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!

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

- 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!
