Last Minute Trip To Permai Rainforest Resort

March 10th, 2008 · 12 Surrendered

I was bored, I called up Allen and Jimmy to ask whether they want to go to the beach or not since our initial plan to Siniawan was cancelled. Called up other friends as well but they weren’t free. That left the 3 of us.

We started our journey at about 2.30pm. This photo was taken from the Santubong Bridge. It looks as if Mount Santubong was erupting! Hahaha…

Closer view of Mount Santubong. We went to Permai Rainforest Resort. The last time I went there was 2005 or 2006 if not mistaken. I’ve not been to the beach for more than a year. For the record I didn’t go to any beach last year except the one at Miri but that didn’t really count as a beach.

You will pass by Cultural Village before going to Permai Rainforest Resort.

WHAT THE ****! The price increased! I remember last time I went was RM2.50 or RM3, now it’s RM5!!! Such steep increment! Since we’re there already, there’s no way to turn back. RM5 is expensive! RM3.50 I can accept but RM5!??! *Sigh* If not mistaken, children below 12 wasn’t charged at all but now…

Bought our tickets, went in… The flag was yellow, it means you have to take extra precaution. The wave was indeed quite big that day.

If you like to play some water sports, you can rent the equipments here. Snorkeling?!?! Hahaha… What you can see at this beach!??!? If it’s Redang or Phuket I can understand, but here? Snorkeling? Hahaha…

Left: The kayaks for rent.
Right: Many couples there… *Sigh* Seeing them make me feel a bit down… I need some tender loving care from you too… 🙁 I didn’t play in the sea water for years already… I don’t like it because it’s sandy and salty, very hard to wash those sand off. The most I did was dipping my feet in the water, that’s all. If there are friends that ask me to join them playing and I’m the in mood, I will play. However, most of the time I’ll reject. What’s more after what had happened few years back.

The waves. These are small ones… Didn’t take bigger ones.

We were here… Hehehe… Written on the sand… KUCHINGBLOGGERS, written by Jimmy. I drew the cat 😛 Allen took my photos *LOL* No group photos though… We quickly left when the cloud was getting heavier. Guess what?!!? When we went into the car, rain started to pour!! Phew…

    Amei, yeap.. that doesn’t count at all, just because it has sand there there and can see the sea, it’s not a beach. Not going to any beach in Miri la… No transport, I was alone and I didn’t plan to go any place at Miri also. Kuching beaches all not nice one la… Nothing special, very boring.
