Happy Quilting to all quilters and have fun!
Friday, June 24, 2011
Like what I said before, the more the merrier and I am already excited having her with us. Adding to this excitment is that one of our friends is going to show-off her new interest in oriental quilting and I have a feeling that that will be our next friendship project. Well, definitely and surely our next outing will be enjoyable and fun.

Jesus, motherhood and there are still good people out there.
Get over my debts, learned more languages (since now my grandchildren are beginning to speak in Mandarin) and have a soul mate to be with.

Driving along the Miri-Pujut road, we met with massive traffic jam and it was caused by fallen trees and blocked the highways.
We made a detour as we arrived along the Permyjaya roundabout and drove all the way to DPS supermarket before making a turn back to Lutong, where we live. It took us more than an hour to reach our house! Usually it's within a 10 minutes drive for me from Lutong to Miri City!
My! I couldn’t believe what I saw as we arrived home. Branches, zinc slabs, shoes and slippers and flowerpots were strewn every way and the sight scare Nigel and Nicole! Both of them huddled each other inside the car and dare not come out! After much coaxing, only then they got out of the car. Nicole started crying again when she saw one of her blue slippers on the grass at the yard instead of at its usual place, the doorstep. So I have to brave the rain and collect the slippers for her.
It comes to my mind that we were only experiencing a small impact of the stormy weather. Just imagine what thoses people in Myanmar were going through when cyclone Nargis hit their home. It saddened me when I think about those unfortunate people out there. Silently, I said a little prayer asking God to forgive us for our sins and to protect us in our every undertakings, to comfort and console those people who are affected by nature’s wrath. I thank God for keeping my family safe on our journey home last night and also protecting my DIL and youngest grandson safe from danger too.
This afternoon I drove to town and I saw many fallen trees and broken branches along the Miri – Pujut Road. The workers from Miri Municipal Council are seen cleaning up those areas affected by last night’s rainstorms. It would be nice to have a clean-look Miri City again later.

Early this year, our team’s Family Day was also held at the same resort and this time the resort is completed with hotel rooms. It’s a pity I didn’t manage to take pictures during our eventful day's trip because I forget to grab my camera with me. Also, I noticed that not many of my colleagues are carrying theirs too! I just wonder why. However, here are a few pictures I took during my first trip to Borneo Tropical Rainforest Resort.
P/S: If you have any plans to visit Malaysia, make Miri City as one of your stopovers! Miri City is located in the 4th Division of the state of Sarawak and it’s popular for its tropical resorts like Mulu and Niah Caves and many other attractions. Wish you enjoyed your stay in Miri City and in general, Malaysia!
A beautiful sight of the oil palm tress planted by the Sarawak Oil Palm Berhad (SOPB) at the Miri Oil Palms Plantation located at around the vicinity of KM41 Miri-Bintulu Road, Lambir District.
A signage is erected just close to the reception lobby and its message is quite clear. Mind your manners!
Depending on what you want to do while there, if you are to do jungle trekking, then you'd have to go by foot, however for a tour of the resort this "tough guy" is used to transport you around. :)
