Travelogue Mabul - Sipadan Trip : Day 3 [Part I]

Thursday, March 4, 2010

Remember in this entry, when i said that Billabong was very understanding and flexible with customer? that i said if i were a Billabong agent, i'd most probably kicked out my group from Mabul for being very fussy- we've been changing mind to stay at Mabul from 4D3N to 3D2N and then to 4D3N again?? memang sengal kan?

but yeah. thank goodness, they don't mind at all. (maybe they've been cursing us under their breath, but who knows?) As far as our concern, they don't mind. because right from the first day, Mr Faizal (Billabong's boss) already told us that the schedule was up to us. What we need to do is to tell them what we're going to do so that they can arrange everything else. And this is why I LOVE BILLABONG SCUBA!! ^____^

So anyway,today should be our last day at Mabul (this is the second plan: 3D2N). We should be heading out from Mabul to Semporna after DSD- Second Dive at Kapalai Island at noon. but again, we changed our plan. Why?? i'll tell you about it later ;)

Third Day Itinerary:

1. Morning : Exploring Mabul Island *again*

2. Noon : Went to Bajau Laut 'Boat-House'

3. at 1.30 pm : DSD at Kapalai ->but we changed it to Mabul because we wanted to take pictures with the TURTLES!! :)

4. Night : Attending Bajau Laut wedding ceremony -> the reason why we postponed going back to Semporna. *grin*

i know how you peeps hate reading, so here you go, a bunch of photos of Day 3 at Mabul Island, Part 1 (Around Mabul).

[ok now. some of you might say, 'what? explore Mabul. again?? WTH?? '
well, for me, every day i see something new, something different, something interesting. i like it here. it's so peaceful.. and beautiful. everywhere you go (pantai), you'll see the crystal clear water. and right at that moment, you'll feel like wanna go jump into the water and swim in the ocean.. ! ]

gosh, i miss Mabul! And you'll be tempted too once when u've seen these pictures~! so feast your eyes! (^___-)v

so the morning started with above picture. yerp. it did creeps me out a bit. but Mozal said that it's nothing cause he'd seen this phenomenon happened few times when he was offshore- and normally the cloud will slowly vanish in the thin air in a few seconds. Still, i was scared cause a few days earlier, Tawau was given a Tsunami alert because of the earthquake at Chile..
but yeah, i also thinks it's kinda cool to have the oppurtunity to see that. Subhanallah.. :)

hey hey! wait for me!

besar nya ikan...

alolor tomei nya bawak kucing... ^__^







sekali ha.. hamek ko. dia campak kucing tu!

We came across several souvenir shops along the way..
FYI: There are many shop-houses in the island

The rest of below pictures were us at Sipadan Mabul Resort (SMART)

i am so in loveeeee with this place!

Faz & I

my favourite shot. taken by Pak Lah.

ini lah hasilnya. Shot by Mozal.

gambar merepek. hihi.


Faz & Adan are my two favourite 'model'. they're both photogenic (betul ke ejaan ni??) and always look happy & cheerful. saya suka sangat amek gambar dorang.

happy sakan dok kat Mabul, kot..? ;)

(no offense ye pak lah & mozal. ngeeee~)

he was trying to catch a fish..

bersungguh benar dia mencuba..


orang lain pula yang berjaya tangkap. huhu~

akhirnya Adan kecewa lalu membenamkan dirinya ke dalam air.


no lah. IJK. he's definitely can't resist the air laut. sangat marvelous! :)

Adan dah tak tahan tengok air yang jernih tu.


it was a bright sunny day. and we were very tired and thirsty. and then we saw this Abang, asked him if we can have the air kelapa (coconut juice). He was very kind enough to climb the coconut tree for us.. and cut it for us. and we're not even the resort customer!! sangat lah baik... perhaps next time i'll consider to stay here :)

sungguh rakus muka masing-masing. too thirsty i guess =p

and finally, my favourite group picture

i totally love you guys!! :)

umm..uols gi dive ni kene ada lesen tak? and im a bit confuse, uols g diving kat mabul or sipadan?? sbb terkesima tgk gamba2 yg cantek ni. tq :)

sorang pun xde lesen! haha. lepas dah try DSD baru la semua bersemangat nak amek lesen(kononnye. hehe). kitorg DSD kat Mabul. our mistake sbb pegi Sipadan on the first day. hari yang lain 2 semua full, so redha je la pegi masa 1st day.

i suggest, klu u xde lesen.. u try amek DSD dulu. klu confident, baru la decide nak dive kat sipadan ke tak. i tak sure la klu xde lesen blh dive kat sipadan ke tak sbb sipadan tu utk higher level. dalam gila. 600 m. serious scary. better tanya divemaster @ travel agent.

and honestly, klu setakat nak snorkel je, takyah la pegi sipadan... sipadan best utk diver. that's my humble opinion la. :)

nak tambah sket, evento xde lesen, n x dive.. i puas ati jugak la dpt jejak kaki kat sipadan... bangga sangatttt!! hehehe
