I just got back from Borneo Highlands. Kinda tired. Worth it! Very happy with it. I will blog about it in parts, I’m not sure how many parts will there be. One thing for sure, you will be going oh~ oh~ ah~ ah~ over it, just like what we did when we were there. Spectacular! No word can describe(at least for me, as I’m not good in describing stuff :P). Photos will say a thousand words.
Let’s talk about Chap Goh Meh first. This is the final day of Chinese(Lunar) New Year celebration. The civilians sponsored fireworks started at around 7pm-9pm. Everyone was trying very hard to show off. When one side blew one type up, the other side will follow suit blowing the same type up or even bigger/nicer ones. It’s like you-got-I-also-got or yours-is-small-mine-is-big hahah…
Interestingly, the fireworks tonight were quite different from those on the eve of CNY. Today’s fireworks were bigger and nicer just like what I saw at Borneo Highlands last night. They were all of the same type except the one where they had rainbow colour fireworks. Too bad my battery was dead that time… I missed it too coz I didn’t have my glasses on. I didn’t take any photos of the fireworks here but did take a lot at Borneo Highlands. We will be having videos uploaded soon so you can see the rainbow colour fireworks. It will be uploaded episode by episode, featuring our trip. We have 3 hosts. I’m the main host and there were 2 more co-hosts joining me. Stay tuned for the videos hehehe… It’s in Mandarin by the way. You’ll be able to see how beautiful Borneo Highlands is.
I wonder how many of you went to Waterfront to throw/pick oranges from Sarawak River? 😛 Chap Goh Meh is also known as Oriental Valentine’s Day. Today, the single girls will make a wish wishing that they will meet a good husband this year and throw the oranges into the river. Then the guys will be picking up the oranges at the other end of the river hahaha… As for the case nowadays, girls might be wishing for more money and those at the other end will be picking up the oranges for sale. *LOL*
Going off to sleep. Tired. Night!
