I have finally finished working for one month in Tokio Marine. Just a few days rest before returning to Setapak and begin my 3rd year…
Okay, this is still Day 6…
After our trip to Petronas Museum, we went to a shopping Mall but I forgot the name. I think we went to Parkson Miri.
Thirsty and slightly exhausted, we decided to try out this dessert drinks booth that already had a queue (so must be good, right?)
It is called “Kokoberry” and they had so many kinds of wonderful drinks that we took a long time deciding as we peruse through their menu.
In the end, we all ordered different drinks so we can try many flavours. I think I ordered coffee-flavoured drink (being the coffee freak that I am), BB ordered fruit or yoghurt something (being the health freak that she is) and Suzane ordered Chocolate-flavoured (which I like better, hee-hee)
And alas, it is time for Suzane to leave for KK, Sabah because her flight was scheduled on that day. It was sad she only stayed for a short time in Miri. I guess we all did not expect the bus trip to Miri was so long, that it took up almost one day, hence Suzane only spend less than one day in Miri. Good thing was that MC, being as efficient as she is, round up Miri in one day for all of us so Suz M will not miss anything.
Bye Bye Suzane and Happy Holidays
(P.S. I cannot believe I am blogging about this, after such a long time. I am going to meet Suz M in four days’ time. How ironic can this post be?)
One last group photo as again our group shrinks to only 3 people left.
Some random shots I took on the trip back from the airport. Many seahorses here in Miri =)
Because previously we had to send off Suzane so quickly for her afternoon flight, we did not have a chance to finish shopping at Parkson so we decided to return. I know, this is such a girls’ trip. Thank goodness for no boys. Lol.
But before that, MC brought us to have “ais kacang” and some rojak. If you have read all my previous Sarawak posts, you would understand why I am going to stay off “ais kacang” for a while now.
But on the contrary, all of the “ais kacang” that we had were really good, but I guess too much of a good thing can become slightly overload.
For dinner, we had rice set, just like back in Setapak but this one is yummier ;)
MC’s house is very near the airport. In fact, I think it is only about ten minutes away. She tells us that sometimes after check-in, she even have time to go back home first before boarding.
(Note: Check-in is usually 2 hours before flight).
This is a collage of MC’s backyard where her family grow all kinds of fruits, vegetables and even flowers. They are so many types that I forgot some of them. I remember that there are papaya, long beans, dragonfruit, bittergourd, guava, eggplant and some leafy veggies that I dunno whats-the-name. Okay okay, I admit I don’t really eat much vegetables. Haih…
# 22 MIRI ROUND GARDEN
One thing I noticed Miri has a lot, are gardens and parks.
Taman Bulatan, that MC said is one of the oldest parks here in Miri.
The miniature petrol station. Just like Taman Tasik Titiwangsa, they have an area to practice “lalu-lintas” here, complete with all the pedestrian signs.
Me and BB reliving our childhood. Hee-hee.
MC and BB having fun being a kid again.
The group photo of the West Malaysia people.
Some scenery photos of the park. Not bad, no?
My favourite thing about this park is definitely the bridge that had such colourful railings, reminded me of my kindergarten. Hehe. There is also a non-functioning clock tower in the center.
The colourful bridge and with me on it. LOL XD
Random snapshot of an old tree with many many many roots.
A testament to how old this park is, judging from the signboard. (Or it could also be due to lack of maintenance).
Last post coming up next….
