Hello...

Recap | last week [ 28th February 2014 - 01st March 2014] NTGravity Zone [ under +Sarawak Bloggers  ] was invited to attend the first ever Bloggers' Night hosted by BB Bunkers and jointly hosted by Damai Central, Escobar and Escape Beach Bar.

Continue from my last entry | One Night and 14 Years Later | This entry is the Day Two [ of our 2D1N BB Bunkers and Damai Central experience ]

I woke up next morning around 8am after a nice and peaceful sleep.

BREAKFAST!!!


Some bloggers are waiting for their orders.
Unfortunately, most of the stalls in Medan Niaga Food Court are still close so not much choice of food.


Our denominations for this morning.
After breakfast [which is already over-run with the next agenda...], we all heading to Damai Central Recreation and Tours counter which is right before to Escobar.


As you can see from the far end is the Barok Amphitheatre down to BB Bunkers and 7-Eleven right next to it.
From left is the Damai Central Souvenir Shop and Pharmacy, Courtyard Cafe, Beach Arcade and Medan Niaga Foodcourt.
While waiting for our tour guide to brief us more about Damai Central, i took the chance to snap a shot.


Woww.. what a nice place to hang out while facing the wide ocean!
The rain start to shower more heavily soon after that but it [for sure] won't stop this life-changing event.
About to get married! *Congrats!*
 Finally... A briefing about Damai Central and it's surrounding by Mr Adrian.

After a round of tour, we took a break for 15minutes before the next activities.

We all [the Bloggers ] are given 3 choices of activities [ few days before ] for us to try it. Those activities are Pansoh Cooking Class, Bicycle Tour and Jungle Trekking. 
I [and my 'no-show' close friend] choose Bicycle Tour.

Taken from Tia Brangking's Instagram. Thank you! Click to her blog HERE
Let me tell you a little story. Back in 90s when i was in Primary School - i am an avid fan in cycling! I need at least 2 sessions [ either afternoon | evening | night ] to ride my bike. Every session, i will cycling around my neighbourhood.

My family move to Klang, Selangor Darul Ehsan when i'm in primary six and that's the last time i'm cycling ever since.

We [ my close friend and i ] choose Bicycle Tour because she never ride a bike before, while i'm trying to bring back my childhood memories.

Well... long story short, i didn't made it! *Ha..Ha..Ha..* I forgot to bring an appropriate clothing as i'm wearing tshirt, jeans and slippers.

Takes my breath away.. i meant feels like almost fainting!

- BICYCLE TOUR
This tour will take you to the beautiful Kampung Santubong where you can enjoy the colourful traditional Malay Village in Sarawak. The tour will stops at Tomb of Sultan Tengah, Pantai Puteri and Santubong Waterfront.
Available on every Saturday at 9am and Sunday at 4pm for only RM30 per person at minimum of 2 person [ max. 8 person ]

NTGravity's NOTE : THIS TOUR IS QUITE PHYSICALLY CHALLENGING AND TAXING. YOU NEED 2.5HOUR TO 3.5HOUR FOR THIS TOUR.


Frame by frame of me - trying to fulfilled my wish to go for a ride before make an u-turn.
After safely return the bike back to the recreation counter, i change my activities to Pansoh Cooking Class instead.

Back to BBQ Area with now Chef Adrian, who will teach us how to cook one of the popular delicacies of Dayak People, Manok Pansoh - which means Bamboo Chicken in local dialect.
Using its original recipes and how it is cooked authentically using bamboo as the utensil.

at only RM25 per person [ at minimum 2 person ] - you can experience it too!


Oh so yummy!!!
Due to the bad weather, the cooking class end a bit later than other activities and i'm the last one to check out from BB Bunkers. Before i make my way back to the city.. i took some time to snipes some photos..

Here goes a lil' bit of something about BB Bunkers.

Triple Pod
Single Pod
Sight from my bunk in the morning right after waking up! *My reserved note has been kept away before i fall to sleep*
Curtain for every pod.
As the upper pods [ the Double Pods ], they have their own curtains at the side and front. My suggestion is maybe in the future there's a curtain to divide each bed in a pod [including the 'Japanese Style Pod' ] and also to give more privacy to the guest. I see this as myself [ forever alone that night ] feel awkward - mind you, i never sleep with strangers before.... in a dorm style. *Ok.. that sound a little bit misleading! LOL*

What i meant here - with extra curtain | One can have their own privacy or own space whenever needed.
