My First Ever Ferry Trip - 12/06/2010

Dear Readers,
Last Saturday I went to Labuan for the first time via ferry.. Dalam 23 tahun, 11 bulan, 2 minggu hidup sy (Ketaralah ndamau mengaku 24 tahun kan.. Hehehe...), sy tidak pernah naik ferry ni.. Lucu oh kan?

Anyway, the reason for me and my friend going to Labuan was because my friend's sister wanted my friend to help her get her car to KK because she'll be using it to go to Sandakan this weekend. So off we went to the jetty at Jesselton's Point (Eh, itu kah tu ah? Lupa oh..) at around 9am..

It turns out that there were only 2 departure time for ferries going to Labuan in the daytime which was 8.30am and 1.30pm.. Obviously we missed the first one so we had to become ikan masin until 1300HRS.

Where we waited.. and waited.. and waited...

I love this.. So cute.. Felt as if I was in London..

After boarding the ferry, we set off for what was supposed to be a 3 hour journey to Labuan.. I said supposed to be because we ended up arriving in Labuan at 5.30pm. That's like 4 hours! Cramp ni.. Tapi for me it's okay lah.. Pengalaman kan...

The gorgeous sunset..

After we arrived, we went to eat chicken wings and drank coconut from its shell at the beachside with my friend's sister and niece. Best...

Happy times..

Unfortunately our return ticket to Menumbok was at 7pm that same day so we hurriedly bought the things we wanted (I bought chocolates, of course.. Hehehe... By the way, kedai2 di Labuan awal tutup oh kan..) and rushed to the Labuan jetty. This time we went on the big ferry because we were bringing the car with us..

I love how the sea ripples in the light of sunset..
The view was gorgeous and I loved the fact that I was able to experience travelling with both types of ferries. I took us only an hour to get to Menumbok and about 1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours to get to Kepayan where my friend dropped me off. Tu nda termasuk singgah pi makan lagi di Papar..

In the end I arrived home at 11pm.. It was very tiring but I enjoyed the trip very much despite all the setbacks and difficulties we faced. Thank you to my friend for making the trip possible.. Cheers..

Before that recent trip I've only ever been on a speedboat from Labuan to Menumbok.

Macam sy jerah sudah nek ferry dari KK p Labuan. Macam sanggup lagi sy nek dari Menumbok ni.. Dunno lah if the extra long journey was a 1 off thing or what kan...
