After our lunch, we had a walk at the jetty. Sematan town is very small, just few rows of shops.
Here are the views taken around the jetty.
I quite like this photo. What do you think? Love the colour of the sky and the mountain.
After that, we decided go back to the resort.
My parents stayed in the room to get some sleeps and my bro and I just walked around and took photos of the surrounding. The detached chalets that can fit 4 pax each and much more expensive. They’re facing the sea. Only these facing the sea, the rest all facing the land.
The photo on the right is the side of the restaurant.
Sat on the chair and watched the waves, enjoying the sea breeze and tried to think but I couldn’t think of anything! I was all BLANK! Just stared blankly to the sea and did nothing. How boring. My bro got so bored and we discussed whether to rent bicycle(I don’t know how to ride one ;p haven’t been cycling for more than 10 years) or kayak(I told him I don’t have the guts to kayak) or go to play with the water(didn’t bring any clothes for it).
Then, we sat there and didn’t do anything. So I decided to go online with my phone, went into this blog, went into facebook and basically that’s all. Then I decided to download MSN, just for the fun of it, since it’s free for 2 months, why not? TADA! I got it connected but no one to chat with. I mean don’t know what to chat about.
Then my bro said he wanted to go to the room for something, forgot what. After quite a while, he came back with my parents with a kayak! *LOL* By the way, the bicycle cannot be ridden on the beach but only outside the resort that’s why he didn’t rent it.
The kayak rental is one hour for RM15 for one seater or RM20 for two seaters.
There were many jellyfish washed to the shore. While my bro was kayaking, I strolled the beach and looking for some unique shells but nothing interesting.
Then I got so restless and decided to kayak also! I’ve never kayak before, now there’s a chance, why not? In fact I didn’t plan to get myself wet at all unless there’s swimming pool but there wasn’t so I didn’t bring any clothes for water play. Still couldn’t resist myself, I went in and played! Didn’t bother of getting my pants or my blouse wet, just let them be. If I’m going to ruin them, just be it! Finally I played with sea water! I kayak! I haven’t got myself wet in sea water for don’t-know-how-many years.
Didn’t have any stamina ;p Really tiring. Only kayak for a while only. No photo of me though, no one helped take any photo. After that, I just sat on the sand and let the waves hit me.
Sematan doesn’t have white sandy beaches. The sand is so dark in colour and the waves bring sand too unlike what you get in Damai or Santubong. It’s not a very nice beach and looks very “dirty” to me but that’s nature, it’s still a beach. We still have the responsibility to keep it clean.
The sunset pictures I took. The sunset wasn’t very spectacular, I got nicer sunset at home.
Can you see the two islands there? In the right picture. That’s Pulau Talang-Talang where turtles can be found there and if I’m not mistaken you need to have permit to go there and you can always arrange with the resort, they should be able to help you.
