Lambir Hills National Park, Miri

The nearest national park to Miri Town is Lambir Hills National Park. It is about 45 minutes drive away using the Bintulu - Miri road. The road condition is not that good as there are ongoing road construction and lorries are everywhere to stretch your travelling time to the destination longer.
The entrance fee is RM10/pax and here are the house rules that you are advised to be strictly following it.
There are 6 waterfalls, 2 hilltops, 1 oil well and 1 tree top to explore. It can easily take the whole day to travel all the places.
It is opened at 8.00am in the morning and ended by 4.30pm. However, you are advised to leave the forest by 4.00pm.
I was there at 2.30pm and I was alone in this journey. This is the first time I am doing this alone because I was being "FFK" by someone whom I thought was a friend. Well, not to dwell in detail about it to spoil my posting here.
There are quite of a number of such bridges in this forest and you are advised to walk pass it at the maximum of 10 person at a time.
Since I am alone, it does not matter much to me so I can even jump around through this bridge.
A mini waterfall along the way to find my first destination.
After 15 minutes walk, I saw this sign stating the direction. Seems like the Latak Waterfall is the nearest while the others may require hours to reach.
Just another 5 minutes and here I am at the first waterfall. This is the nearest waterfall to visit.
No lifeguard available here so please swim at your own risk.
Not a very beautiful waterfall as you can see. You also can notice there is a rope restricting you from going further because that is the deeper part of the waterfall.
All I can see here are the foreigners who seems like enjoying the swallow water and sunbathing at the same time. Looks bored to me somehow.
Since I was so bored alone, so I am trying to use my macro lens to do a macro shot on a large ant. This is the best I can get. The ant is getting pissed of me already. I better let it go.
I left the waterfall with the wild thought of searching for a better looking waterfall. This is how the forest trail like.
The weather was actually extremely hot but this tall and big trees are your best umbrella to keep you cool. Basically you hardly can see any animals in this woods. Most of the mammals should be staying away from human already. Maybe you should keep a watch on the reptiles and you know which type I mean.
After 1 hour, all I can hear are the sound of the woods and the puffing sound made by me. Quite scary to me somehow when you are all alone when the time is almost 4.00pm. So I thought that I should give up my adventure thinking to explore the other waterfalls. So I headed back with a plan in mind that I will come back and will be here early to explore everything in this forest...and get a reliable partner along. This place is highly recommended to nature lovers.
Things to bring:
1) Hiking shoes
2) Walking stick (assist you in walking or self-defence)
3) Extra clothes if you are planning to swim in the waterfall.
4) Food for lunch and snacks to retain you energy
5) Lots of drinking water since you will be there for the whole day if you plan to explore everything in this jungle.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.
