Don't Worry, Be Happy

Some of the days you feel like everything is put down on your shoulders.
What would you do, how would you act and react to your surroundings?
I have always have seen the glass half empty and can feel the weeping angel in me,
(sigh...)..asking WhY..wHY..it has to be like this.
"Everything happens for a reason" , couldn't make me feel any better.
I realize, the more gloomy i become, the more i am drawn to all negative elements.
Weep together now people..

But i guess no matter how UNHAPPY or GLOOMY u are, Bob Marley's DONT WORRY BE HAPPY never fails you.
You dont want to make everybody frown or double your trouble..do you ?
So, wear the smile now people.. :/ ,, :) ok,, much better

Here's a little song i wrote,
you might want to sing it note for note,
don't worry, be happy
in every life we have some trouble,
when you worry you make it double
don't worry, be happy
dont worry be happy now
dont worry be happy
dont worry be happy
dont worry be happy
dont worry be happy

aint got no place to lay your head,
somebody came and took your bed,
don't worry, be happy

the landlord say your rent is late,
he may have to litagate,
dont worry (small laugh) be happy,
look at me im happy,
don't worry, be happy

i give you my phone number,
when your worried, call me,
i make you happy
don't worry, be happy

aint got no cash,
aint got no style,
aint got no gal to make you smile
but don't worry, be happy

cos when you worry,
your face will frown,
and that will bring everybody down,
so don't worry, be happy
don't worry, be happy now...

now there this song i wrote
i hope you you learned it note for note
like good little children
dont worry be happy
listen to what i say
in your life expect some trouble
when you worry you make it double
dont worry be happy

be happy now dont worry,
be happy dont worry,
be happy dont worry,
be happy dont worry,
be happy dont worry
dont worry be happy
don't worry, don't worry,

don't do it, be happy,
put a smile on your face,
don't bring everybody down like this

don't worry, it will soon pass whatever it is,
don't worry, be happy,
i'm not worried
I remember the visit well – last month. It was right after the Sunday mass that I went up to my fiance’s house to visit members of the family and the talked about Kasih Sayang of course. Mr fiancé lives way up in the mountain, blessed with panoramic Kinabalu mountain view and the South China Sea (not to mention the oh- so – lovely cool breeze). The journey up to Kasih Sayang was a hard ride on the a**, as the roads were bumpy and muddy (after the rain). Nevertheless, passing by a few villagers house and watching cute* and adorable* piglets (* applied to some people only) made the journey worth it and ,,made you feel like a total a** for roasting/grilling/eating/masak kicap one of many Mother Nature’s gift.

Anyway, once arrived, we found out we were the only walk – in guests that time. So, I took a chance asking for a tour around the resort villas. The results – WONDERFUL (for the price you have to pay for the accommodation /spa treatment).
I love taking pictures (of places n faces) – a new interest. Thus , here are a few pictures of Kasih Sayang that I would love to share with you.
Isn’t Kasih Sayang is all about sharing..?

O yes, forgive me. Where the heaven is Kasih Sayang?
You can take the way down to the Kiansom Waterfall in Inanam. You’ll see a 70 degrees junction with the Kasih Sayang signboard, a few meters before reaching the waterfall. Just follow the junction, until you reach the place (hahaha). Don’t worry there’ll be no other junctions, oopps, only one (take the one to the left, to the left- sing Beyonce), the one passing by Mr fiance’s house and a few more kilometers ahead before reaching Kasih Sayang. Just ask the villagers for the way around. But they will all be giving you the same direction bah– “Na..ik saja.., sampai itu nanti”. (^_^) ..because that’s the only way – up. Just like heaven.

A very modest and welcoming doorway of the Kasih Sayang resort.

A rear view of the resort. Well, it used to be known as Villa Kasih Sayang. But it has been re branded and named as Kasih Sayang Boutique Resort and Spa

Staircase to heaven..? well,,almost,,the beautiful pathway will lead u to the Manja Manja Spa.

Welcome to the Manja Manja Spa - be prepared to be manja..

A litlle spring cleaning would give the guests a clearer view of the golden words..

Sun bathing in the warm sun and cool breeze anyone.. (^_^) Actually its part of the cool breezy restaurant of Kasih Sayang. Imagine yourself sitting down,,sipping..with coooool clean air brushing your face.

My family enjoying their teh tarik - better drink fast if u dont want it to get cold.

This bubbly teh tarik cost us RM5.90++ each

Mr fiance lives somewhere among these green mountains.. (^_^) really envy the continuous supply of fresh cool air he takes everyday. A view of the hills from Kasih Sayang.

Dream Lodge

Welcome to the Tempurung Seaside Lodge. Situated in Kuala Penyu, about 2 hours drive from Kota Kinabalu. What can i say..its the most beautiful lodge i hv ever encountered so far. the strength of this little lodge is definitely the magnificent sea view n hill top lodge. just imagine urself going out from ur room to see the great China Sea in front of u, n down below is a white sandy beach - ahhh ..pure bliss. i can never get enough of it.
I purposely made this trip with my fiance (a day trip that is) to check out the place and capture some pics. Tempurung Seaside lodge is perfect for families, couples or as an escapade for anyone trying to outlive the mundane live.

How to get there..? well, just follow the normal route to Kuala Penyu, and check out a little sign board of this lodge along the road to Kuala Penyu - about 3 - 4 km after the Kuala Penyu roundabout. but, be careful once u enter the junction to the lodge, because its still quite far, u need to reach the beach of cos. and that's about 6 - 7km more from the junction. n the sign board to the lodge hopefully will not confuse u, as there are a lot of other junctions u need to take (^_^)
Anyway, its a a great trip with great view, i wouldnt mind living there forever.

The front view of the lodge. i was standing at the beach. wouldnt it be nice if u could a house like this? wuuu..dream..dream..dream..(sing the Everly Brothers)

The restaurant of the lodge.With the shape of a big sampan..

A view from a top of the lodge living area. This is what u can see from the verandah.
A simple boat to decorate the perfect beach. Well, the boat belongs to the villagers of cos.
The Tempurung beach looks familiar - doesnt it look like the Simpang Mengayau beach? well.. (^_^)

Going back here next Jun/July.

An unforgettable early morning river cruise along the Kinabatangan river.
I sat at the back of the boat drowned with wonders and amazement of the longest river in my tanah air.
The homestay program was such a blast because of the warm hospitality of the villagers n of course because of the fiery cheerfulness of our students.
i think the key word for the whole program should be "woo hoooooooo" (shout until u can shout no more) - siok ba (^_^)
The most unforgettable part was of course the river cruise, the one hour jungle trek, n the gala nite a.k.a students performing madly, enthusiastichally n..gila -ly..
wooooHoooooo pewitttttttt!!!

The unforgettable early morning river cruise along the misty Kinabatangan river. It didnt give me the shivers, just plain coolness and peace of mind. no wonders the animals live happily around here, esp the Proboscis monkeys and hornbills.

Looking at the sunrise - pure amazament.
This is how we do it. i was in the fourth boat. i think the boatman wanted to race - to see who make it first, to our stop.

The majestic Kinabatangan bridge. My host family lives just nearby this bridge. Salute to my host family for their warm hospitality. the thing that really made me feel welcome when entering my host family home was finding a bath towel well folded at the edge of the bed - fantastic - just what we needed after a 6 hours drive.
