The last day in Miri. My friend was supposed to go to work but he was “chased” home by his manager because they said that he’s not fully recover yet and don’t want the chicken pox virus to spread to other people in the office as he was infected by another colleague of his that went back to work four days after his chicken pox hahaha… He has nothing to do and decided to bring us around before sending us to airport. I thought I will be ready by 10.30am but apparently there are some packings that need to get done. He was there before 10.30am already, I didn’t know and told him to go to the hotel at 11am -.-” Finally checked out before 11am.
He drove us around Miri. We have to reach the airport before 1.20pm. So we still have few hours to tour around. First stop, he brought us to Canada Hill where you can see the Grand Old Lady up there hahaha… Funny name right?
The view from Canada Hill. Other area rained heavily already but not Miri city center yet. Actually it’s drizzling already. So… This is the place that I’ve been seeing all these while from my hotel room. I was wondering what was that place and I wanted to ask the room service people but hehehe… I didn’t ask at the end.
The first old well in Malaysia. The grand old lady that is! Hehehe… Does it looks like the an old lady? Hehehe… I guess so… The top is like the hat and the whole structure shape is like a lady wearing the victorian style gown. 😛
Left: This is… What? I have no idea, something to do with oil drilling also.
Right: The fountain, it depicts the molecules of petroleum. Remember your Chemistry? I don’t really remember, they’re called molecules or atoms? Hahaha…
The Petroleum Museum, you need to pay RM2 per entry. We didn’t go in after hearing that we need to pay to go in *LOL* Also we dont have the luxury of time, there are few more places to go before we catch our plane. If we had the time, I might consider paying the RM2 and took my sweet time there.
I didn’t know that there’re actually restaurant there operating at night. You can see the night view of Miri city centre. Very romantic place but at the same time you are feeding the “vampires”. 😛
Then, my friend brought us to Eastwood Valley, a place for golfers.
Golf course and the man made lake. You can paddle the boats there 😛 I think you have to pay, nothing is free. They also have accommodations there. People like to use this place for seminar, meeting or conference.
The platform. They are making new platform or they are repairing it? Not so sure.
Left: More view of the golf course.
Right: You can dine there while facing the lake.
The last part of Miri trip will come soon… I had to split day 3 into two parts as there are too many photos.
