Left: The morning view, 6 something in the morning from our room.
Right: “Tut-Tut” that was supposed to send us up to the Kalimantan View Point but there were too many people, so we(the youngsters and young parents) were asked to walk up to the lookout point. The “Tut-Tut” was occupied by young children and old people.



The views that we saw when we walked up to the lookout point.

Goshh… the slope was high. I’m exhausted. I almost fainted twice because I didn’t eat anything and didn’t drink any water. I stopped to rest for a while and drank some water then I felt better. We were the last to arrive because we stopped to take photos and video many times. The group in front kept looking back at us because we were so young but we were so slow. They thought we didn’t have the energy to go up *LOL* I shouldn’t have run that time because of the running I was drained.


Finally reached the view point. Actually everyone was supposed to walk to the lookout point not with “Tut-Tut” but because of many young children and old people, “Tut-Tut” was used.



The view is spectacular! It lookes nicer in real life than in photos.
It’s time to camwhore again!!! 😛 Hehehe…
By the way, reach your hand or a foot out, you are in Kalimantan, Indonesia already!!! Yes! I went to Indonesia that day without passport 😛


Left: Strange insect. Even the guide had never seen it before. This is the first time she encountered it. Their tails were joined together. The guide discovered it first on the ground.
Right: Further up, there’s a hut. It’s higher there.


Left: The guide explaining to us about Batu Pangah on top of the mountain. She told us about legend of it. Two lovers escaped from the village and when it rained, they had no place to hide, so they went into a place where women were not supposed to go in but they had no choice, they went in and they turned into a rock. You can see the rock with the shape of human there now.
Right: More view from the hut.


Left: More view.
Right: This is the highest peak of Kuching, Mount. Penrissen. To reach the peak, you need to climb the mountain. The shortest time to reach there is 3 hours but depends on the stamina of the climbers.


Last but not least, camwhore time again! 😛 This time is from the hill where the hut is. We have another photo taken with the guide but it’s in another camera. Will show it to you when I got it.

After that, we went down via “Tut-Tut” to breakfast at the Chinese Tea House and Flower Garden.
