Miri...

Miri - The Land of Sea Horse? I have no idea why they use seahorse as mascot. After jalan-jalan & 吹吹风 in Canada Hill, it's time to go back to the hotel. Feel tired & exhausted liao mah after a long journey.

The comfy & spacious bed (how to resist?) of The ParkCity Everly Hotel, Miri. Time to Zzzz (kena scolding from Papercrazy after I told her I wanna go back to the hotel at 5 pm).

Seaview from our hotel room balcony. It started raining cats & dogs "Liucat & AhBoy" within minutes after our arrival at the hotel. Another good & solid reason to Zzzzz :P

I absolutely have no idea what is this... Resembles Oscar Trophy from afar :P

Since it was raining heavily out there, we had our SeaFood Buffet Dinner inside the hotel. Mmmm... Had several servings (more than half a dozen) of Big, Fat & Juicy Raw Oyster with lime & Salsa sauce. (Psss.. Someone was jealous.. ):P

After a good night sleep (Zzzz like a log for more than 10 hours & didn't "see ghost"), it was time to wake up & continue on with our journey. Thank God no more hujan.

Another view from our room balcony

Stunted Tree? :P

Kolo Mee for breakfast before we continued on with our journey.

Seahorse again (what else do you expect to see? :P)

The 'Oscar Trophy' is actually the rangka of (yuppp..... yet another) Seahorse! Serious. It's a lighthouse, actually.

Miri is soooooooo home to me. And you didn't go visit Scooby-Yoshi?? I stay very near Park Everly leh. I once blogged why they use seahorse as mascot but forgot d.

Hehehe.. anyway, never seen the first seahorse picture leh. Where is it? Look so old

Chen said...

misti,
yeah, very relaxing,
breathing in fresh air..
Cool..
and eye soothing too :)

Oooh.. it's the light house that resemble sea horse?
I see.. Thanks for the info.

That was my first visit to Miri.
I dunno where u stay woh :P
So no luck with Scooby.
Never mind, there's always next time ;)

The first seahorse was taken quite far away from Miri. At the roundabout, I think something like 30++ km from Miri town (since I saw the signboard indicating Miri town is 36 km away) :)

The texture of the noodle is springy :D

This is my first visit to Miri.
Didn't go around much, as this is more like a "transit" town to me, cos I'm heading towards Bintulu :)

Yeah, I enjoyed my time there although it's just a short stay :)
