Pulau Mengalum Trip...

AWESOME TRIP!!

It's been quite a long time I've never been to pulau, maybe 10 years I guess??? Hmm...This time, it was our assigment to Pulau Mengalum.

Before I touch the ground, I was kind of speechless...the sea, the beach....oh woww! For me, it just like a paradise...

WELCOME TO PULAU MENGALUM!!

Mmm...speechless

Our team together with the Maritim crew & the staff of Mengalum Resort.



The mysterious Mengalum Anchor is located in Mengalum Island about four hours boat ride from Kota Kinabalu is a mystery, that is no one knows how and when it came to be lying on the island. It appears that its earliest recorded existance was by Captain Edward Belcher in H.M.S. Saracen's log in 1854. The wrought iron anchor is however believed to be a Richard Pering improved anchor or Admiralty (British) anchor, manufactured from ca. 1819 to 1845. Local reports of the anchor, as early as 1931 described it as a "keramat"; it is venerated by fisherfolk who assumed its supernatural powers and which cannot be removed from the island. Therefore, it is not unsual to see offering of rice, tobacco, eggs and other foods placed on the anchor. [Source: http://www.borneo-online.com.my/attract.htm]

Pics at TLDM Sepangar

During Sultan Brunei's visit here at Kota Kinabalu, I was given an assigment to photograph Sultan Brunei at Marina Sutera Harbour & TLDM Sepangar. All the while, I never had the chance to see Sultan Brunei personally and this time to see him at close range. I was thinking if I could get myself a picture with him but to no avail. Anyway, my duty is to photograph him. Sadly, I can't disclose pictures of him here in my blog coz it is strictly confidential and not allow to publish it.

My colleagues & I managed to get a pic with KD Kedah's ship at TLDM Sepangar
