Fort Margherita, Kuching

So actually today i planned to go to Bako National Park but my both legs are rigor mortis like..

I could barely walk steadily..

Albeit my legs hurt like hell, i still wanna go visit a place.. So it was Fort Margherita’s turn..

It’s so near yet i did not know there is such a place until 1 week ago.. lol

We have to take a boat across the river to reach there or alternatively u can drive there.. But i prefer the boat coz it’s something different.. 🙂

“Pak cik, ada pergi Fort Margherita ke?”

“Ya, sini pergi”

“Berapa ya pak cik?”

“5”

“5 ringgit??????”

“Eh, 50 cents la!”

“Ok!”

Luckily.. i thought he wanna chop my head..

Saw that road behind Jun ing? That’s the road to Fort but we did not know and we took a big round.. haha

pb130053_977x733

This sign board is only visible after u walk for 2 minutes..

Lol, it should be visible when after u came out from the boat..

pb130053_977x733

We still have to walk for a distance we could reach there..

So we were extremely SLOW!

pb130053_977x733

But i still managed to jump 😀

pb130053_977x733

On the way to Fort, we saw nothing but this.. So we took quite a few photos with this building..

But until now we still dunno what’s that building 😛

pb130053_977x733

Finally we reached there..

pb130053_977x733

Ish, 背光!

pb130053_977x733

Yes, this is it!

pb130053_977x733

pb130053_977x733

1880.. TAG Heuer is older than u.. haha..

No need entrance fees!!! Yeah!

pb130076_550x733

I took this picture also for the sake of u guys 🙂

but i dont really understand what it meant by

“Open daily except 1st day of Public Holiday”

Anyone?

pb130053_977x733

Opps, u cant read the words..

pb130053_977x733

Read this then.. 😀

pb130053_977x733

But no bags are allowed.. So u have to put into a locker but it’s free also.. 😀

We have to climb up this stairs for 3 floors to reach the top.

pb130053_977x733

1st floor..

pb130053_977x733

2nd floor.. lol 2 floors of empty room

pb130053_977x733

So now i know i have height phobia.. Jun Ing also..

Again, we went up the stairs extremely slow also due to out pain & phobia..

Combo!

pb130053_977x733

After reaching the top, neng ka already 😛

pb130053_977x733

Hooo.. Hilton Hotel..

pb130053_977x733

The place where they fight the enemies..

pb130053_977x733

The inscriptions of the original tombstone.

pb130053_977x733

It’s pity that they locked this tower.. or else i wanna go up also..

pb130053_977x733

1 line only my eye 😛

pb130053_977x733

Forced to smile..

pb130053_977x733

2 mini jail..

pb130053_977x733

She said she cant see anything..

pb130053_977x733

But i saw Paris Hilton changing in the Hilton Hotel! Woot!

pb130053_977x733

The place that we went up just now..

pb130053_977x733

They purposely put this inside a room with a skeleton picture outside..

Ish, i forgot to take that picture..

I think they purposely put this to scare ppl off.. haha

Luckily we are medical students and we are used to it 😀

pb130053_977x733

Until now i still dunno how this works man!

pb130053_977x733

I thought it is a see-saw.. haha

pb130053_977x733

So many of them..

pb130053_977x733

Not the real tombstone la..

pb130053_977x733

The inscriptions only..

pb130053_977x733

The whole fort..

pb130053_977x733

Side view..

pb130053_977x733

Actually we met a group of indians..

They were ahead of us..

Then when they saw this road, they were afraid.. lol

They turned back and told us it’s closed.. WTF?

I don’t believe them & went to ask a villager there..

He told me just go in coz it’s still far inside from here..

Lol, the indians just went back like this.. so scared for wat? Aduh!

pb130053_977x733

The village around the fort..

pb130053_977x733

It’s time to go back..

pb130053_977x733

The jetty..

pb130053_977x733

Inside the sampan..

pb130053_977x733

Bye bye Fort Margherita!

pb130053_977x733

Dont smile so happy hor..

Jun Ing was so scared at first to sit the sampan..

So she asked me to sit beside her..

When i got up and went to her side, suddenly the sampan nearly terbalik.. lol

The passengers inside quickly said “Eh, duduk sanalah..”

Haha.. Sorry, my bad 🙂

pb130053_977x733

Yes, finally!!

I have been in Kuching for 4 years but i have never taken a picture with the cats here..

So today is my day!
