The next night

In my previous post, I mentioned that I wish to see real sea turtles in action. Well, we did get to see some sea turtles. Baby turtles to be exact.

It was on the 2nd night, that we were fortunate enough to see baby turtles. They hatched and we get to see and hold them before releasing them to the sea. 

It was around 1130pm that night when the national park staff called us to inform us on the baby turtles. Everyone quickly got up from their beds and followed the staff to the hatching station.

The hatching station

9 turtles hatched that night

Hubby was holding this cute baby turtle

Mid Autumn festival is here and since we were at Tanjung Datu last weekend, we took the chance to release a couple of sky lanterns there. 

We were not allowed to venture to the beach after 6pm (due to turtle activity) so we can only let go of the sky lanterns at the camp site. 

First lantern was a success, flew straight to the sky under the yellow-coloured moon. Second lantern had a bit of disaster as it caught onto a tree. It burned on one side but somehow it got loose and managed to fly off to the sky. I guess our wishes were granted eventually. Lol. 

Let it heated up

When hot air developed, let it go!! 

Fly up and up!! 


One was the lantern and the other one was the moon. Guess which was which?? 

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival, guys!
