Dynasty Carty

[This was a draft] Forgot what it was but this was during my trip to Sarawak. Outside the Hotel, on a Sunday, they have this Carnival. I took some pictures before catching my flight.













Trip to Sarawak Day Four (Saturday)

So, today is Saturday and since I have done all my tasks and my flight is not due until Sunday, I have two choices. From the Hotel window, I can see there is a beach far away. This means I can either explore the town or go to the beach. I decided to walk around the town once more, since last night's outing was more of getting lost and looking for "proper" food (like MacDonalds la).

There were two shopping centres which I remembered from the taxi trip and after getting my bearings right, both of them were lined up in a straight line (following the main road) from the Hotel and the furthest was just about half an hour's walk away. A little further more, there was a toy shop (about four shoplots long!!! called Belle's or Moments) where I got a nice Teddy Bear for Kristine, only to find out its from Shah Alam.

For the rest of the day, it was hot so I decided to go back to the Hotel and yes, sleep. With two big packs of Milo, a 7-up Ice, potato salad and some bread, I am set for the rest of the day/night.

This is a very nice lamp........

And a very interesting notice

The amostphere at the buffet is quite nice

This what I had.........

And my second helping......

Followed by porridge........

Someone tipped the dustbin over.....

I just can't help not taking this picture

They put a Volks on the roof!!!

So, it spun......

and spun.....

and spun......

I got this Teddy Bear for Kristine

One bad thing about watching Hotel's own (DVD) show is that either you wait hours for the show to be played or halfway through, they rewind and restart the DVD again. So, I had to watch XXX part II almost twice

It was raining the whole night

There was a mirror in front of this one, so the effect is kinda nice

This is how I looked like after hours of non-stop TV

Trip to Sarawak Day Three (Friday)

Although everything is still on schedule, I was not happy as if it wasn't for yesterday's delay, I could have been in Miri today. But then again, small flights are prone to such incidents. Anyway, there is only two flights to Miri today and I have to make sure that I get it (as the first one was at 0630). Unfortunately, apart from the slight delay (again), I was not able to get the last flight back to KL for the night. There was one for tomorrow morning at 0630 on Saturday but it was a Business Class which I would have to top up. So, I had to settle for Sunday's 1550 flight instead. Yeah, I could have either pay the difference or even buy another ticket from Miri to Kuching and then get a ticket from there to KL. Since I was rushing to make sure I catch the customer before they close for the week at 1730, I settled for Sunday's flight.

So, I had about less than two hours to visually check all phones, program them, repair the cabling and also replace those broken ones. Because if I cannot, I would have to wait until Monday.

My colleague whose was in Sabah, had to return to the customer again as they have discovered a new complication. They even got their own staff to pick him up from the airport and also send him back. But by the time he was finished, he got the chance to see his plane fly off without him.......

Anyway, for the next two days, I am stuck in Miri. I could have made an extra effort to try to get back on saturday but I am already exhausted.

0800 - Breakfast in Hotel. No buffet
0830 - Visited customer in Bintulu
1330 - Flight to Miri was delayed to 1415
1530 - Visited customer in Miri
1830 - Checked in to Hotel Dynasty
1715 - Explored Miri after a nice shower
2240 - Sleeping time
Midnight to 4AM - Can't sleep. Watched Waterboy, Die another Day and bits of other movies (while drifting in and out of sleep)

This is the morning view from the Bintulu Hotel

Instead of a buffet, I had to choose from a menu (consisting of four dishes)
So I settled for 2 sausages and eggs and a coffee (Orange juice is extra)

And parts of the Hotel was under construction
