Work­ing life has been hec­tic and pres­sure. When Okui popped up the sug­ges­tion few months ago to go to Labuan for a trip, with­out hes­i­ta­tion I straight away said ok.

Map of Labuan Island

This is the first time I’m tak­ing a flight. Well, not exactly first time because my real first flight was around 20 years ago when I was still a baby.

It’s so amaz­ing that some­thing the size of a whale can fly in the sky. Every­thing seems to be so small from the top.

Island view from the plane

I was very excited about the flight. So I keep tak­ing pic­tures of the sky, sea and land, keep tak­ing videos of how the plane takes off and keep look­ing at the stew­ardess giv­ing demo on how to fas­ten seat belt and using the life jacket. And how can I miss the chance to try the toi­let in the sky.

1st day – Labuan Island

We reached Labuan on Thurs­day night. So all activ­i­ties start on Fri­day morn­ing. And shop­ping was on the top of the list espe­cially when we are in a place like Labuan. Labuan is a free tax zone. So things like liqueur, cig­a­rette and choco­late are all very cheap.

If you go any­where you see peo­ple sell­ing liqueur and cigarette.

Shop selling all kinds of liquer

If not liqueur and cig­a­rette, then chocolate.


We vis­ited the marine park on the first day. The park was very new and not much marine life can be seen.


And then we visit the bird park. First time tak­ing pic­ture with a par­rot in my hand.


2nd day – Pulau Kuraman

On the 2nd day, we took a speed boat and went to a small island called Pulau Kura­man not far away from Labuan.


We swim, we snorkel and we sun­bath sunburned.


Dur­ing sun­set, we walk around the beach and take pictures.


I love this pic­ture so much.

Sud­denly I saw a rain­bow across the sky. It was so beau­ti­ful so I quickly ask every­one to come and take pic­ture with the rainbow.


At night, we had a BBQ party. And we bought 2 lob­sters from the resort caught fresh that morn­ing for RM60. First time hav­ing lob­ster. It tastes just like prawn but the tex­ture feels more like chicken.


3rd day – Good­bye Labuan

I was waken by Okui around 6 o’clock in the morn­ing to see the sunrise.

Lis­ten­ing to the soft wave hit­ting the shore and look­ing at the golden sky slowly turns blue, it was so peace­ful and calming.


A trip is still a trip. It has to end some­how. We packed our things and head to the airport.

The flight back to KL was more excit­ing because the weather is very good and I was able to look at the scener­ies all the way, for 2 and a half hours.


Dur­ing the flight, I ordered this nasi lemak and Nescafe which cost me freak­ing RM8 and RM4 respec­tively. Luck­ily the taste was still ok or else I will have to acci­den­tally spill the cof­fee on the chair and unin­ten­tion­ally drop the nasi lemak on the floor.


Over­all, it was a good trip. I’ve tried many things for the first time. Hope­fully I can save enough money so that I can go to Bali or Phuket in the near future.

I am here in Labuan. Must be the wrong Labuan, can­not find any lob­sters in your pic­ture. Hei hei, sure you take the pic­tures from labuan?
