Since I left Sabah , I have never written an entry in this blog. So , this is my first time in this year I revive my blog again. I will write again if and only if I return to Sabah once more.

I have summarized what my friends said to me when they first saw me :

Why you become so thin?
Maybe because my eating habits was too stringent .
I thought before about my weight issue but i will do something to improve my situation.

You look different with your hair?
My hair? I guess they have never seen me in short hair , last time when i was in Sabah I used to keep my hair in a medium length . I am now already comfortable with my short hair.

Your arms become bigger ?
Thanks to the gym which I go . The facilities provided were as what i have always wanted . When I studied in Sabah, gym was out of reach.

I think that was the comments they gave . Actually now when I am writing my body is very itchy ,I only know how to alleviate the itchiness by applying a type of balm which is made in Thailand. But soon after warmness of the balm diminishes , the itchiness starts again. There are 2 possibilities : the liquor , sunburn.

Speaking about banana liquor, the night before i left Sabah,my close friends were together with me . They suggested to play the card games , the loser will have to drink the liquor. At first was the grapes wine which has 10% alcohol, after finishing the bottle . Next was the bananarama liquor , which has 25% alcohol. I declined but they forced me to drink . I lost mostly in the card games and i had to drink . The wine made a bit dizzy and I felt the earth was moving and very sleppy . After that , with the addition of the Bananarama ,I couldn't help myself but become uncontrollable . The after taste of Bananarama was good but front taste of the liquor was too bitter . I even vomited after the last drink of punishment . (I can say that my situation was nearly like binge drinking )And I slept at early morning around 4 am after a series of unexpected event -'pulling trousers' . I was nearly pulled because I didn't help them to victimized my ex-roomate . They even recorded the whole session on camera including the reveal of the sensitive body parts .

As the sunburn , I was sunburned by the harsh hot weather , if it rained we won't enjoy our trip ,the sunny day brought us a lot of joy and laughter . With my shoulder exposed to the sun directly , the help of the sunscreen lotion with SPF 30 won't prevent my skin from burning. From Sapi Island to Manukan Island , I applied 3 times also won't work. We were transited to another island at around 2 p.m. , the weather was scorching hot but we still go into the sea .

I like Sapi Island very much because of its unsurpassed beauty in the ocean with minimum destroy on the reefs . The fishes were lively and we managed to spot some predators and preys activities . There are artificial corals for the marine life to flourish , I got my knee cut by the coarseness of the artificial coral maybe I stayed at the spot for sometime to look into the artificial coral.

In comparison, I also like Manukan Island but not to the extent like Sapi. The first impression on Manukan was great . As we alighted from the boat at the dock , lots of fishes near the surface of the water including the mini swordfish ,colorful parrot fish . As soon as we entered the sea , most of the corals were destroyed and very few fishes . The sea urchins were abundant in sight which made us returned to the sea . Before we concluded our trip , we went to the far end of the beach in search for better marine animals . As we swim towards the sea , nothing much but dead corals were everywhere . Suddenly , a school of fishes present , my friend fed the bigger-than-usual fishes with non tasty Gardenia bread made in Sabah . I abruptly became afraid of my safety . The distance was very near between the fishes and I ,although it was nice to be surrounded by the fishes . The fishes were wild , I was afraid I will be bitten .
