so the next day, we headed to the tourism centre where we can ask for maps and infos about Kuching. so we decided to go to Semenggoh Wildlife Centre to see the real life of orang utan (they are freely live in the jungle, not caged). we were going by van and the fee is rm25 per person including the entrance fee. it was an amazing experience (no we can't touch them) but to see them hanging around freely above our head.
that evening, we decided to eat somewhere else so we rode river taxis (finally) with 40 cents per ride, to the other side of the river (call Kampung Boyan). there are a row of small shop lot selling craft and kek lapis (the shops are just newly built) and local people said that there is a kek lapis factory around here (sadly, we didn't go there ). but there are two big canopies where a lot of food stalls with variety of foods nearby. we ate mi kolok, claypot tomyam and claypot mix soup. the food is delicious and cheaper to!
on thursday, we decided to go to Taman Negara Bako. early in the morning, we walked and breakfast at bismillah cafe near the taxi stand. to go to Bako by bus, it just cost you rm2 per person and with van, rm5 per person (if the van is full). unfortunately, there is no bus around that morning (we should wait actually) so we took a van that cost us rm 35 per ride (they charged per van not per person, remember?) and took around 45 minutes to go there. from the jetty, we need to ride a boat for another 45 minutes to Taman Negara. for a boat, it cost rm47 perboat per ride (if less then 4 person) and rm8 perperson per ride (if more than 5 person). so, we joined this German couple in a boat ride that cost all of us less per person.
that evening, we packed our stuff and flew back to kl. the trip was very nice and i kind of missing every single moment in Kuching. plus, it was a long time ago since my family had a trip together.
*saya hanya benci waktu panas terik di sana - my brother said 'musim elnino'. sampai johor setiap hari redup - nice..nice.. :)
