cute cute baby orang utan in Sabah

exercise time. 1,2,3....

i think i am very fortunate because i have the chance to travel and have a lots of unforgettable and 'intimate' experience with animals.

in year 2005( that time , i was a fourth year vet student), my coursemates and i were accepted to do our practical in Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre, Sandakan. The Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre was established in year 1964 to return orphaned apes back to the wild.The centre has a reception centre, information centre, offices for wildlife staff, an animal clinic, quarantine area and enclosures for various animals such as the rhinoceros and sun bears.

basically, what we did during our practical were be a good baby sitter for cute baby orang utans. haha. bottle-feeding them with milk, changing napkins, preparing food for older orang utans.when we were free, we would bring babies out for climbing practice. putting them on rope and let them climbing in order to make their arms stronger and prepare to let them back to nature.

feels very warm with him in my arm

yummy yummy time

comfortably sitting in a hammock prepared by the lovely staff

haha... bringing them out to jalan jalan makan angin

look at them. they are so innocent. but, they lost their homes and mothers and got to stay in orphan home. we can do something for them. if you go to Sabah, do pay a visit to Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre. for more details, please visit

hard rock hotel

after an enjoyable day, we met up with our friends who stayed in Hard Rock Cafe Hotel at the Kuta beach. it is really a great place. comfortable and convenient. there are restaurant, shops around that area. the beach is just in front of the hotel.

this was our last day in Bali and we not yet had a chance to try out the famous Balinese massage. haha. this is really a new experience for me. whole body massage and facial wash. it costed me about Rp 300,000. the massage centre is located far from kuta and transport was provided by the centre. honestly, the decoration of the centre is not really very very special and the massaging was .... so so only. but till now i still remember the facial wash. not because it is very good but because it is very very 'special'. special until i wanna scream for help. the massage lady scrub and scrub my face till i felt like my face is going to peel off. i wonder is it the way they do facial? another friend of mine also had the same experience as me.

wanna see more of the famous Hard Rock Hotel??

there is a temple inside Hard Rock Hotel
