Camping at Sunset Beach with Tembara Cruise Tuaran, Sabah

The sunset is nice huh!

There are 2 things that I underestimated Tembara, one was that I thought it will be JUST a another sunset (boy, was I wrong). Second, it is gonna be JUST another cruise (yeah yeah…. I was wrong. AGAIN).

Here is my story... It’ll be short. I promise. Swear (eyes rolling). We took the cruise, nothing fancy shmancy… Eh! Wait, let me back track abit.

First, we reach the Tembara Cruise jetty with the expectation that it is gonna be easy (I mean, susah sangat ke naik cruise. Duh….. ) but noooo…. We were required to experience cycling and kayaking. I was game on the cycling part, we were taken to the end point ie by the river (looks like a tiny beach to me), I saw a BBQ pit there… I remembered telling myself that it is a great spot to lepak and have picnic (BBQ would be better of course). It is also a great spot for Instagram. Swimming, nahhh…. I won’t remember as it is a huge river, there are currents kan.

After all the picture taking stuff, we cycled back to Tembara. Then we bumped into dogs in a verge of a fight, and guess what, one of my friend provoked it and they came running towards them. Since I was the last cyclist I decided to stop and not proceed, fearing the dog my turn around a chase me instead… my quick badass mind told me to turn right and into this huge compound and remain calm, and I did just that. Rupa-rupanya I turned into a cemetery, hemmm…. It is senja mind you. At that point of time, kena gigit anjing would probably be better than stuck in a cemetery at senja. Hahhahahaa….

I saw few folks waving at me (orang betul ke nih? Yup, that thought did cross my mind). They told me to come over as there were 3-5 dogs ‘running-amok’ (overdramatizing the whole situation, the dogs menyalak-nyalak ajer [acah gangster ler tew]). Anyway, the guide came to ‘escort’ me back to the Tembara. They then ask us to do a swap, those the cyclists are to experience the kayak and vice versa. I did not do the kayak so nothing to write lah kan *meh*.

The highlight
We were taken for a sunset cruise and my expectation was that we will be on the boat looking over the yonder kinda thingy. But to my surprise, we went to this island (if not, a peninsular of some sort) to catch the sunset and Sabah being Sabah, the hues were breathtaking. I was speechless.
