Kris or Keris is a kind of Malay's weapon. It use for defense himself and family from invader to attack them. Normally in a Malays houses they will hanging the kris on the wall. In this position the kris will be functional use by anybody in the house at anytime when they need it.

Most of Malays have a few kris in their house. The name of kris always diffrent according their own functional. Like kris (as in a photo) the name is Keris Surabaya the name given because it made from Surabaya, Indonesia. It functional as a symbol the owner of the house. It meaning a wealth, though and kind person.

The handle of the kris made from wood ( like meranti, nyatoh and etc. local wood ) and the blade from iron . Whatever the kris was, it just a symbol of a Malays life and their kind of culture. But now days, kris just a one of the decoration in Malaysian houses even they Malays or what any kind of race.

During a holiday trip to Sabah, the first thing in my mindset is to visit one of hundred island of them. The nearest island form KK is Manukan and Mamautih Island. With a fare around RM21.00 included boat fare, island tax and etc. actually is very reasonable price for us to be there.

Early in a morning around 9.00 a.m., my team was in Jesselton Point ready to explore Manukan Island. But it take a long time to have one boat to reach there, because a lot of people that day. They all want to reach before the afternoon.

Even this is a sixth time visited Sabah, I never reach at any island in Sabah before. A journey with 9 seated boat, about 25 minutes to Manukan Island make some of our guy get sea sickness. It must be funny. Lot of people will be drunk of the beer, but my men gone drunk with sea sickness. Ha..ha ... look tough enough but they flat than.

Very pity Manukan Island, there no coral and marine life look actrractive. Infect if you want to see a little bit of coral color it all gone with evolution of the development in Manukan Island. So what can you see in a Manukan Island? is just a normal scenery with white mermaid hanging a round on the white sand a long the seashore. Some of them with topless, and other all less - upside down. For me just bottomless under water while diving into the blue deep sea.

Spend a few hour in Manukan Island make me tired soon with swimming, explore into the deep sea. Our lunch that afternoon meal just maggie mee only with RM4.00 for a bowl. Because that day a lot of tourist landed in the island. What to do? Something is better than nothing.

On the way back from the Manukan Island, I my mind - a lot of thing was missing there. Especially is a nature marine life. Life as it goes…. as my heart said – “If you need something new, you will lost you old love one”.
Thank you to all blogger for visit my blog today. Until than, in the next story about my journey next time in Vietnam may be…so soon. LIFE AS IT GOES….
