Slingpacking. 'HOW YOU GO O~~~?'

I'd been 'slingpacking' around Sabah during the weekend when i get a day off on Sunday. I never use a backpack when i travel so this term 'backpacking' cannot be apply on me.

So far, i've been to a number of places but my post just keep delaying because i couldn't upload any photo using the stupid broadband.

The photo below took me an hour to upload it here. Gosh!

It's taken by an old Kadazandusun lady when i visited her village....well....on my first week here(shrugging my bian...bad upload speed)

Well, well, talk about travelling. So far, i'd been travelling around Sabah all alone and i have no problem getting from one place to the others by using the public transport here. I just don't understand why peoples always told me it's impossible to do so and how 'NOT SAFE' it was.

A: 'How you go o?'
Me: 'Bus'
A: 'What!!!! Is not safe. I tell you....' (continue telling me crime that happened way back in 2001)

B: 'Where are you going this week?'
Me: 'Rungus longhouse.'
B: 'How you go o?'
Me: 'Bus + Walk'
B: 'Is not safe!!!! I tell you....' (continue telling me the same old grandmother story which A told me about)

but what annoyed me the most was this colleague of mine which i previously also mentioned before in my post.....

Well. She's an epic i tell you because i'd been asked tons of question about travelling but nobody ever asked me this question.

Her: 'Can i go with you?'
Me: 'Are you sure? I'm going to really ulu places o~~~'
Her: 'Where o?'
Me: 'Kudat dee Kampung.'
Her: 'Har~~~~Go there do what o?'
Me: 'Go there see the indigenous people play nose flute.'
Her: 'Har~~~~~then need to walk or not?'
Me: 'Of course. Where got people travel without walking?'
Her: 'Then i cannot wear heels liao lo....I can wear heels right????'
Me: '(Trying hard not to laugh). I'll feature your story in my blog if you manage to do so.'
Her: 'Har? eh....then how about next week? Where are you going?
Me: 'Kota Belud.'
Her: 'Is very far lei!!!! Go there do what o?'
Me: 'I want to ride horse and buy cheap handicraft and visit the village that make parang.'
Her: 'Har~~~~but how you go o?'

and one more thing here......

I really really really really hate it when peoples kept asking me

'HOW YOU GO O~~~~?'
