Peak of Hope

Hola!

I can’t believe this is my first post of the new year?! 😆 How’s everyone doing? I hope you guys are having great moments just like I do.

Last Saturday while at the church service, my friend asked us to join them for a little fun later that evening. So glad we said yes! Where did we go? If you’re one of my followers on Instagram, I’m sure you noticed I have been spamming quite a lots of pictures from the place 😁

It took us almost an hour to reach this place. If you wish to go here, you can see the signboard following the same road you take if you’re going to Kota Belud / Kota Marudu / Kudat.

Entrance fee is Rm20 for adult including transport to the peak. If I’m not mistaken, children below 12 won’t be charged for entrance. See that Land Cruiser there? That’s one of the transport that took us up to the hill. If I have an off-road vehicle, I don’t think I would drive on my own to the peak 😂 it’s a rollercoaster journey! Fortunately it’s just around 7-10 minutes drive.

So, what’s interesting up there? Nothing much actually 😅 Except these: great spot for instagramable pictures, amazing view of nature, fresh air, and ATV ride. I personally absolutely love it up there! Well, I didn’t ride the ATV because it’s too expensive for me but actually I had fun! We had fun! It’s obviously a peak of a hill that they turned it into something well…different if that’s the right word to define. Something beautiful and interesting.

The background is real! 😎

I think I managed to control my acrophobia just because I wanna have some great pictures from this platform lol!

Can you tell how stiff my pose is? 😂 Also, the wind was blowing so hard that time I can feel my body swayed forward.

And this is my friend, Shere. She seems relax and she even smile.

Missing the other two pumpkins!

Oh, they sell drinks here too and of course it’s a little pricey so if you mind that, you can bring your own. We’re fasting that day so we didn’t even asked if they serve any food or anything other than just drinks.

Where’s my groom? Lol.

These two ❤🕊🕊

Not one of the great Sunset I ever see but still, I always love sunset 😊

There’s quite a lot of people visiting this place and that explains why we need to wait for our turn to take pictures. But not too long though.

Anddd that’s it! The place started to close around 7pm and the visitors were waiting their turn to be picked up by the Land Cruiser. I think we’re the last group to hop on the vehicle. It’s a different driver this time and me judging (while laughing and screaming) the way he drove, I think he got this in his mind “one last fun drive” lol.

I don’t know why they named it Peak of Hope, but yeaah I hope someday I will come again to try the ATV ride because I never ride one before. Until my next post! 😉

2018 – Thank you, next!

Today is the last day of the year 2018! I thought it would be great to share something about things that I’ve learned and loved throughout this year.

What I’ve Learned

January 2018

Truth is, it’s not a wonderful year to me. A lot has happened which was kind of depressing. – I’m jobless, There were some scaled-down in our marriage and I had a miscarriage. –

Those three agendas still keep playing in my mind and makes me feel so small that I sometimes plants the words useless and terrible inside my brain. However it’s tiring af! Really…it’s so exhausting to feel that way. To feel useless, to hold on hatred and to put blame on myself. Those quotes “life is too short blah blah blah” is no kidding. I learned that, whatever negativity I should enjoy my days because at the same time it will heal me; glad I did! I forgive others, I forgive myself. I let go, I move on. And I’ve learned to love again.

What I’ve Loved

Despite all those sad moments, that doesn’t stop me to do whatever I love and have some happy moments too! I did some little but great things with my husband, had an awesome ocean trip and riverside camping with my girls, had a fun-adventurous jungle trekking, joined a short run event with lotsaaa adorable dogs, went to a Zumba party, and went for getaways with my families. Loving all those great memories and excitement.

Another one thing, what I’ve loved the most from this year was when I opened up myself to some invitation as a blogger to helps in promoting their business on social media. Not just it helps me to be a better blogger, but also I love how I now have more friends!

One word to me for this year – Strong!

Stronger because of the hard times, wiser because of the mistakes, and happier because of the sad experiences!

Before ending this post, I sincerely want to say thank you and sorry for everything you’ve done and for everything I’ve done wrong to you. Yes you, all of you! 😊

Wishing you all a Happy New Year and have a wonderful time! 🎉

Thank you 2018, next! ✨

Christmas 2018

I think it’s not too late to wish you all, Merry Christmas! Hope you have wonderful time with your loved ones!

How did our family celebrate Christmas here? We had meals with family and friends, and that’s it! Just a simple but meaningful gathering because the real meaning of Christmas is to remember and thankful for the Saviour; the greatest gift of all.

23 December

On the 23rd of December, it’s our house turn to be entertained by the Christmas carols so mom decided to have an open-house dinner. So blessed for the beautiful carols! Since my dad is one of the carols, he sing with them instead of listening as a host lol. We all sang together though. Mom and her sister prepared 6 different dishes, all were sooo good! It was a fun night.

On the 24th, Christmas eve, we did nothing….well more like cleaning all the messiness from the night before.

Christmas Day

Ready for Christmas lunch but…..

Husband and I planned to have Christmas lunch at one of our favorite restaurant BUT suddenly he had to work! How sad! I cancelled the reservation and stayed at home…thanks to Christmas movies! One that got me cracked up so much was this:

A Bad Moms Christmas

So we just had dinner after he’s done with his work at a nearby restaurant.

uggh what’s wrong with my eyes…

I got grilled chicken and chicken chop for husband. My chicken was yum! So juicy and tender. Husband didn’t finished his chicken chop because there’s just too much of chicken lol!

Love this top so much! So comfy!

After we’re done with our dinner, we went home and had a drink while watching Christmas movies.

26th December

Just like any normal days, I went out for groceries shopping and a little bit fun shopping for new year’s new clothes 😝

After that, I met an aunty and she gave me this Christmas Yule log cake. So pretty! However it’s not yummy lol sorry but thank you. Husband said it tasted like a wedding cake back in the 90’s – 😂 what ever!

That’s it. Nothing fancy, just some precious and happy moments with the people I love. Until my next post! ❤
