Boy, I just came back from our Mulu escape. It was so interesting and adventurous. I guess I will share in details with you guys in case some of you might be interested to go there one day.And the photos I will show to you might be in the form of photobook. So enjoy reading yeah…?

There are three ways to go there, but the fastest is by air either from Kuching (Direct Flight) or from Miri. I would advise you guys to go there by flight. Save your energy for the walks in Mulu, you’ll need all the strengths to enjoy the activities there.

Actually it was my parents who wanted to go to Mulu and not me. But since they are “warga emas” (old in age) I decided to accompany them, in case they need help. Kids below 7 years old are not encouraged to go there because the trip requires physical strength.

Going there by air from Kuching took 1 hour and 35 minutes but if you are flying there from Miri, it will take around 30 minutes. The airport is small but new. Do not expect many food stalls, souvenir shops, ATM machine, money changer, big LCD Tvs and Mcdonald or KFC. However, don’t worry, if you are hungry, there is still a small cafe for visitors to eat at a very interesting price (you know what I mean right?). The check-in process was simple and fast. So you will not be annoyed by the long que of people.

So friends, that’s all for today. Will update you soon once time permits. Have a nice day yeah?

So excited

I have just finished packing my stuff into two bags. One for my clothes and the other one is for my camera equipment. I tried to bring my sturdy tripod, but it was too heavy. So I took the light and thin tripod instead. I hope it can bear the weight of my DSLR. What do you think? Should I bring the sturdy tripod?

And before I went to sleep, I read through the tour package we are taking at Mulu. I even surfed the net on Mulu at  www.mulupark.com. The reason I surfed was because I need to decide on what clothing to wear and whether the visit to the caves has a potential risk to my DSLR. My top priority is to ensure that my DSLR is safe and I am able to take good photos there.

Based on our travel itinerary, we will visit two caves and also a Penan settlement;

I can’t wait to fly there on Friday 5th November. I will be there for three days and hopefully will update my blog by Monday. If you guys are interested to go there, just book your tour package at Orient Travels, Kuching (opposite MAS building). But the tour cost RM535 per person and RM488 for the direct flight (Kuching – Mulu) with MasWings.
