I got back from Miri last Monday and headed to Mukah the next day afternoon and came back yesterday, Sunday morning to be exact. Again, I'll let Uncle Wiki to help me in introducing you to Mukah. Why Mukah, you may ask? Err, cause apparently my dad is working there at the moment and my Mum has always been curious about his working place so that is why we were there for a trip. There's practically nothing in Mukah like seriously, just a really small and quiet town dominates by the Melanau-s. I had no choice but to tag along and I spent the entire week mainly sleeping, eating and catching up with HIMYM cause my freaking DiGi broadband doesn't work there sheesh I guess my body weight is back to square one now. It's awfully hard to cope with it so let's just be fat and happy.
The road to Mukah is still under construction and the 3 hours and a half ride was bad. Real bad, I tell you. Bumpy road that gives you butt sores! It is even worse than a rollercoaster ride :O
You can see longhouses, oil palms plantations and paddy fields along the way~ Before heading to Mukah, we made a detour to Balingian, a much much smaller town that only has a row of shoplots and a few houses. Old school to the max!
And on Christmas day itself, we went on a trip to Dalat for visiting! It was an hour drive from Mukah. Remember a short story on How Dalat got its name in our English literature during highschool? Yes, Dalat it is! Frankly speaking, it was my first time celebrating Christmas in such a place but still we are welcomed as guests and they served us scrumptious lunch and dinner! Awesome ♥ Too bad there's no picture of food cause I think it would be impolite to snap picture when everyone is eating :P And I'm sure they can't think of a reason of me snapping picture of food and they might think I'm from Mars, as if I've never seen food in my entire life! Oh well, moving on with some photos of the place (:
Vroooom, that's the speedboat yaw 8) Btw, that is the Oya river!
Too bad I didn't get to ride on one cause it was going to rain T___T & FYI, each family from every houses there owns at least one speedboat cause this is still one of their means of transportation. It will take 15 mins to reach Mukah by speedboat, way faster than using a car HAHA It can travel all the way to Sibu as well!
To be continued......I've lost my blogging mojo again, oh fudge.
