Lucky me.


My Suunto ambit watch was sent for repair few month earlier, button problems (it got stuck when pressed and had difficult getting back to the original position), seems quite harmless and not such a big issue, but it’s annoying and might do permanent damage to the internal components at the long-term.

So I had it sent to repairs at the retailer since the warranty was still valid, which in turn was sent to the distributor some few thousand miles away. Normally, the time for repair is about 3 month as said by the shop. Sounds too long for repairs for me but I had no choice. Reason being that they had to wait for parts, procedures, documentation to suunto HQ, etc and all that.

To the summit Mount Gading

Gunung Gading is about 3166 Feet high. Located at the small town in Lundu, 70 KM from Kuching city. Driving takes almost 2 hour and there’s two route as far as I know. The first is through the town of Bau, whilst the second one via “Sampadi” where you’d have to wait for a ferry at rambungan river. I prefer the ferry route as the road is more scenic with much less traffic.

are we there yet…

The park requires an entrance and registration fee RM10 with the rangers. As for being a national park, the surrounding is well maintained. Continue reading

Enjoy sushi.

The adventure…

Always entertaining and fun when going out for sushi, either it’s trying to figure out the ingredient or just the plain interesting presentation that makes me wonder how would the colorful blend satisfy the palate. Wasabi, is one of the magic ingredient that I alone seem to like, is hard to describe, it is the only food at this moment known to be able to immediately clear my nasal passage. I do not know what effects of consuming wasabi at large amounts would do, so if there’s any warnings that I should know, do tell. (the wasabi in the pic, that’s just for me.) By now, sushi, would have been demystified and quite common, but I have found out that it’s quite far from true. Maybe due to the Japanese language and the unfamiliar vocabulary is what makes it sounds so interestingly complex.
