as you all know, the hols have started yesterday. it was kinda boring though. i stayed at home the whole morning. then went to lunch at dynasty hotel with my mum and her ex-classmates. then we went back home and at night, i went to free2be. honestly, i prefer last year's free2be. but then last night was alright. i reached home at about 10.50pm :)

then today, i was waken up by my mum when she came into my room to choose my sister's outfit. then my sister came in as well as my dad. all three of them were making so much noise that i couldnt even sleep. so i had no choice but to wake up. then we picked up my cousin from ipoh and went to church. after church, we went for breakfast and back home to get some stuffs and off we go to batu niah with my cousins and aunts to go to my uncle's so-called orchard to get some talap. hehe i love that fruit. its like soooo nice and it jst taste good. and if you do NOT know what a talap is, look at this picture and you will know.

well on the way there, i jst sat in the car looking here and there. my sister slept and it made me tired too so i slept with her. when i woke up, my mum sister and cousin were sleeping. so i took some pictures since i had nothing to do and there was still a long way to go.

the view of between miri and batu niah.
shao wen and vallamy sleeping

we reached the place around almost 11am i think. then off we went to pick some talaps. hehe it was fun at first watching them plucking and catching em. and this is my dad trying to pluck the fruit with the long sharp metal pole thingy.

this is what happens if you do not know how to catch. so people, better learn you catching skills before you start catching talaps. isnt it a waste to see a sweet talap fall to the ground like how the terrorists bom each other during wars.

then, we walked further into the orchard. and continued plucking the talaps. well only my mum and sister stayed in the house and waited for us to come back.

clmbing the tall tree. *my fat dad in action*

this is a durian tree :]

this is how a talap looks like.

and this is how the inside is.

this is a talap tree.

still looking for more talaps.

well we went back into the house with at least 15 talaps. we had alot of fun but there was one thing that annoyed me which is SO MANY mosquitoes + the VERY HOT weather. and when we went into the house, and there were some durians and pomelo ready for us to eat. after eating we went to wash our hands and guess what. the water supply was so little my aunt said it looked like someone pee-ing. LOL

we went back to miri and went to tanjung to drink. i was so exhausted. about an hour after arriving home, my cousins from my mum's side came to visit. they jst came back from KL last night. then in the everning dad brought me and vallamy to eat dinner. mum was at grandma's house with my aunts and a nurse as they were doing sumthin to my grandma's leg. and now im here in my room blogging about what happened today and yesterday.

goodnite everyone.
have fun reading.
and enjoy the pictures.
