Rant

This week, my post will be dedicated to purely ranting.

I’ve been in a better place recently, reconnecting with my inner self and focusing on other things  that would not make me upset. I guess the best way for me to move on is really to get distracted. Distracted with things I can do with my life without just wallowing in bed thinking of what could have been. I know readers may feel really petty that after so long, I am still sore and I’m still upset. Heck, of course I am. The guy is moving on, and so am I! Just not social media about it, that’s all. So maybe life is just playing a cruel trick on me. I hate social media now. Dislike how addicted I am to being able to know where everyone is and what they are doing, at what time. Able to be in their shoes and assuming what they are feeling and being affected by my own imagination of how they’re feeling. It’s intoxicating and tiring. I have a knack of being OBSESSED at what everyone is doing. And it in turn hurts me when I find out things I don’t want to. 

Going to quote a good friend of mine:

Alyssa, you’ve got to embrace the Feeling of NOT feeling FOMO, give some time to yourself and live YOUR life.

So yeah, I will try my best. And REALLY get OFF social media to people watch, I DO NOT need that knowledge in my life. Breathe. 

Peace out. 🙆🏻


Ps. I’m absolutely fine guys! 😘 Ping me for proof! 🙆🏻

Travel to Gua Niah!

So the story of the week will be about my trip to Niah! Just gonna give a heads up that the pictures taken weren’t of the besssst quality, just want to give my readers a sense of the highlight of my week.

So the reason behind going to Niah was because… my friends from KL and Brunei came to visit! 🙆🏻 They are my crazy board game freak gang, and they are the most entertaining group of friends I have (sorry everyone else, hehe). But basically had to bring them to Miri’s iconic cave: Gua Niah. 

Travel details:

  • By car from Miri city center; around 1.5 to 2 hours. Depending on the traffic (big lorries on a one lane roads, which is most of the time)
  • Entrance fee: RM10 for locals (if locals bringing foreigners, it is also RM10 each). RM20 for foreigners.
  • RM 1 for a boat ride across a small river to the other side. Not forgetting another RM1 to cross back as well at the end!
  • Drinks and souvenirs are sold mid trail. (Quite pricey, RM3 per can drink)
  • Some areas require torches (Phone flash would be sufficient, if you’re just into casual caving).

Hmm, those are really the only 5 points about what to look out for prior to going. But other than that, I shall story tell my experience. So basically, the road to Niah, was a very easy one. Just one STRAIGHT road all the way to the Niah area, then there will be signs to Niah National Park on the way. May be hard to see, so trust google maps! Just in case you miss any roads. The road itself is slightly bumpy, so brace your car. And you will be so annoyed with the lorries slowly driving on these roads, and needing to cut them. So PLEASE BE CAREFUL WHEN CUTTING! 

Niah’s cave trail is very VERY easy for all ages. We arrived at 10.15am and left Niah at about 1.30pm. But this is just exploring only Traders Cave. If you were to go further into Painting Caves, then you can add another 1 hour to the timing. If you’ve never been to a cave before, Niah would be a good start to get a small feel at how a cave is like 🙂 but overall it was a chilled walk in a cave.

After the Walk Photo!

It was an overall fun experience! Hope these boys enjoyed themselves! Because I did! The nature and the conversations we had during the walk (not to mention exercised too!) was a fun activity to do in boring little Miri. Be one with nature.

After the walk, we went to eat my favourite dish after Niah-ing. TUTU FISH or IKAN BERTUTU! Bekenu town has a restaurant called “Sing Chiong Restaurant” that rares tutu fishes. Basically they are freshwater fish that has meat that is soft like tofu. It is really a MUST eat if you are done with Niah, and finding food on the way back.

Type this address on google to find it: “Sing Chiong Restaurant, Kampung Keluru Jaya, 98150 Bekenu, Sarawak, Malaysia”

It was an amazing lunch!

Shall end the blog here now guys! Hope you enjoyed reading it. More next week!

Special shoutout to Teng: for my early birthday present! Love it! (Not the munchkin)

The Best Night

Last night, was a truly epic night! The cross between the old and the new merged together like smooth peanut butter! What I’m meaning is, my high school friends partying hard with my colleagues on one single table! It was a truly amazing night to have both closest friends from two groups coming together so well. There were so many stories to tell and experiences to share. It was just amazing how alcohol can loosen people up and just be comfortable with each other. As well as hike up our emotions. Like they say the most natural personality will come out when one is drunk/tipsy. And last night’s hype seemed to be such a loving and caring group that knows everyone’s struggle but still are there for them. Don’t know why that’s what I got out of a drunken night out, but it just seemed more than just a normal outing last night. 


To all my friends that are going through hard times and or just having a bad or stressful day. Remember that all of us are here for you, no matter what. Through thick and thin. 


It has been an amazing, heart warming long weekend. 

Cheers to these ladies that have grown to be beautiful and strong women and wish for them the bessssst future. We don’t know when we can meet up like this again. But we will! One day!


Here I shall end my weekly. Peace out ♥️
