I can't help myself on this one. I was curious how far is the distance from Taiwan to Los Angeles, so I checked out direction from Google map. I tried it's best to give a workable direction and see what's the direction at number 107, kayak across the Pacific Ocean! hahaha
Over the route, I was asked to kayak twice across the Pacific hahaha
BTW I'm off to the States between 6 Aug to 18 Aug. Can't wait!

Part 7 of 7
Since our flight was quite late and we still had our rental car, we toured Miri town. Had nasi lelapan for lunch. A Miri specialty
Later at a Paras Malam, they sell slightly backdated magazines without the cover. At really cheap prices, like RM2 instead of the usual RM10. Have no idea why or how
Part 6 of 7
Time to leave. At Mulu Park airport. Simple. Check out the weighing machine. The conveyer belt for luggage at the background
Upon reaching Miri, we rented a car and drove to Niah Cave, about 100km away. What a difference after Mulu! The place was very basic and nowhere near as posh & nice as Mulu
We walked all the way to Painting Cave to see pre-historic paintings. But they were so faint & very difficult to appreciate. Looks better in photos though
Part 5 of 7. Our 4th day at Mulu Park. Jungle trekking to Garden of Eden
We had to pass through this cave first, Deer Cave. A very big cave. My camera flash can barely light the interior, hence very few shots of this place
Us, enjoying ourselves at the Garden of Eden waterfall. The walk to here was full of leeches! Yucks!
On the way back. Re-entering Deer Cave. Garden of Eden was part of the cave. But it has collapsed and became a valley
Peeking out to the Garden of Eden. The stream runs through the cave. We swam along the stream to this spot actually
Continuation. Part 4 of 7 of our trip to Mulu Park
Since we didn't get to do the Pinnacles, we spent the spare day to do this. An intermediate level caving experience to Racer Cave. Kind of challenging, but really fun!
The cave is named Racer due to this Racer snake. There was quite a lot of them inside. And they survive in pitch black condition in the cave!
Back to the dormitory. We surprisingly prefer this place rather than the posh chalet we stayed the night before
