Last weekend (27 Feb 07) I had the chance to go Kg. Paitan. It’s my lifelong wish to enter this part of Sabah. The journey took us about 4hrs by road until we reached the bridge. Happy giler!!!

We didn’t do much for the rest of the day. We prepared dinner untuk kami² then the rest of the night is free.. that night Jeff and I were sitting at a small hut where they use to cook rice. We all sembang² la and we didn’t keep track of time.. sekali tengok… OMG!! it’s 1pm and everyone dah K.O. and all lights are off.. but we’re so lucky that day to see shooting stars.. Jeff saw twice and I only saw once.. it was like so close to us ba the shooting star. That nite we took our rest peacefully inside the chapel.

We bangun awal that day to help out in preparing lunch for the whole kampung. Jeff and I were asked to be incharge of “Sweet and Sour Sausages” hehehe.. we did great job on that one la of cos.. then we served foods to the kampung people. It was fun and I felt the joy to see their faces. We played some games with the children also la.. Jeff took charge the musical chair with Margaret while the rest of the kids sang to us on the convent’s balcony.

By the end of the day, everyone received packed goodies prepared by our team. Everyone was happy and satisfy. We bid farewell to the people, took our boat ride for another 30mins and drive back to KK to do our normal daily routine. I’m gonna miss Paitan and hoping to come back one day..
