Seonsang Ilchulbong (Sunrise peak)

Seongsang Ilchubong also called ‘Sunrise Peak’, is an archetypal tuff cone formed by hydrovolcanic eruptions upon a shallow seabed about 5 thousand years ago. Situated on the eastern seaboard of Jeju Island and said to resemble a gigantic ancient castle, this tuff cone is 182 meters high, has a preserved bowl-like crater and also displays diverse inner structures resulting from the sea cliff. These features are considered to be of geologic worth, providing information on eruptive and depositional processes of hydromagmatic volcanoes worldwide as well as past volcanic activity of Seongsan Ilchulbong

Seongsan Ilchulbong Tuff Cone is 180 meters high, and its crater is about 600 meters in diameter. 

Getting ready to climb up the crater ..180 m to go..

Me with the Dol Hareubangs

Dol hareubangs, also called tol harubangshareubangsharubangs, are large mushroom-like statues found on Jeju Island off the southern tip of Korea. They are considered to be gods offering both protection and fertility and were placed outside of gates for protection against demons travelling between realities.

The dol hareubangs are carved from porous basalt (volcanic rock) and range in size up to 3 metres high. The statues' faces feature grinning expressions and bulging eyes without pupils, a long, broad nose, and slight smile and their hands rest on their bellies, one slightly above the other. In sets of two, one will have a higher left hand and the other a higher right hand. The hat is commonly referred to as phallic or mushroom-like.

view from the peak

Wet and sweating..walking up the crater took me more than 20 minutes// Wasn't that cold but breezy

Finally i've reached the peak

the green crater
The surrounding view is magnificent. A famous korean drama called "My  name is Kim Sam Soon" was once shot here at Seonsang Ilchulbong

Singgahsana Lodge, Kuching

If you're about to visit Kuching, Sarawak and yet to know where to stay, i would suggest you to stay at Singgahsana Lodge, Kuching. Singgahsana Lodge is a truly unique guesthouse decorated in a local style. Strategically located along Temple Street in the heart of beautiful Kuching City, Singgahsana Lodge is only 20 steps from the famed Kuching Waterfront.
Once you enter the reception area, you'll see these authentic decoration of pua kumbu and uniquely crafted ladder
Our room is the en-suite bathroom with queen size bed. Amazingly the room has an attic
Us at the attic
spacious and cozy at the attic
The best thing about Singgahsana Lodge is its bar placed at the roof top.
Decorated in local style, great ambiance//
I find this creative. Travellers all around the world who stayed here scribbled thier says on the wall.

Draw what ever you like on the wall// great place to express yourself
As there's no longer space for you to scribble your say, some even scribble it on the floor..

Let's chill and play board game
Aking & Afai : battle begins with laugh//
Me trying to play the Iban musical instument called "grunung"// Unfortunately it sound nothing like "iban taboh"
If you find board game is too boring, perhaps you can play the pool or the table soccer  game
Dym lazying on the leather chair
While lazying, you can also watch football match on the big screen
raised platform where you can just lounge around
getting fresh air at the roof top// relaxing though

If you're thinking of planning a trip to the land of headhunters soon, i would  suggests that you give singgahsana lodge a try. They do accept online booking.

Dolphin cruise - Bali

Let's experience an exhilarating early morning with high speed cruise along the coastline of Nusa Dua, Bali to see the wild dolphins at the open sea.

Yeay, Let's go see the dolphins
Bali dolphin cruise is an exciting activity and if you're lucky you will be able to watch the beautiful and sway movement of the dolphins. It is indeed a very impressible to see a pod of dolphins freely swim and jump in the open sea.

Was told by the guide that, only if you're lucky you will be able to see the dolphins, if not...too bad..just not your day to see the dolphins
I was lucky!!! Dolphins appeared after almost an hour ..
From far the dolphins may look like sharks


Many of them..
Hahaha.. im all wet!!!
The tour is full of fun with professional guide and experience boat driver to explore the Indian ocean with great adventures. Wondering how much would it cost you? The price is roughly around : USD 85//+. Expensive but there's nothing beat the experience of seeing wild dolphins in live.
