Phenomenon

If you remember, I did went to Sri Aman sometime middle of the year for few days.

Unfortunately we did not get to see the "benak" phenomenon that time as it was not the right time.  Benak as the local called them is the interesting tidal bores that formed in Batang Lupar river. Usually the big benak fest is sometimes in May where big waves are formed but basically you could view the waves anytime of the year. It is the only river in the world that has tidal bores on daily basis! More information here.

Thanks to hubby, he video-ed this benak on Monday evening and shown to me. Hope to experience and see the benak one day.

Well, nothing phenomenal is happening this weekend, but I did brought the kids for their much needed haircut. Just me and kids, enjoying our Saturday.

Before hair cut

How do I look?


Hubby is away travelling and will only get to see him tomorrow before he is off to Sri Aman again. One thing I don't fancy about year end? He is flying more often for meetings. Already don't get to see him on weekdays and he is away during the weekends as well. Sigh!

I was in Sri Aman once and yes, I saw the benak. Some people went surfing on the waves!

Quite amazing this benak phenomenon! It does look a bit scary to me.

Hang in there. In no time it will already be Christmas. You are one tough mama to be bringing up 3 lovely kids single handedly while hubby is away at work.

You are so bold to try new hairstyle and cut away your long long fringe, I am not so bold to try new hairstyle

This "benak" phenomenon somehow reminds me of the tsunami incident. Watching it for yourself will be more exciting than watching a video.
