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]
