If you are in Nexus Resort Karambunai, drop by at Sunset Bar to enjoy a hearty meal or sip in a cocktail as you enjoy the sunset. Located on the beachfront, the Sunset Bar is a quaint establishment offering diners an al fresco environment to enjoy the South China sea breeze while they eat. For starters check out the Lite Bites which offer an array of finger food including satay (a Malaysian favourite), Greek salad, spicy potato wedges and soup of the day. They also serve an array of sandwiches – try the tandoori chicken served in tortilla bread with cucumber yogurt. Kids will love the Sunset Burger, chargrilled with onions or the jumbo New York Hot Dog served with caramelized onions, mustard and home-made relish. Moving on the main course, the Sunset Bar can whip up a hearty charcoal-grilled Australian Ribbed Eye Steak or if you prefer something light, try the Grilled Seabass Fillet with spring onions and lemon dressing. However, the pizza has proved to be the real winner at Sunset Bar. Choose from a variety of flavours, including quarto formaggio, margarita and Mediterranean. There’s definitely something for everyone! Craving for something sweet? Go for the chocolate cake, apple crumble or caramello cheesecake. Simply delectable! Cocktails, mocktails, smoothies and fresh juices are also available so take your pick. Surrounded by the great outdoors and with an amazing view of the sunset, the Sunset Bar will not disappoint.

While preparation for the powerboat race is being geared up, the coastal areas in the West Coast were badly hit by a 'powerstorm' courtesy of the tropical storm Hagibis. This happened coincidently with the unusual high tide. So how's the weather gonna be like during the powerboat race? The weatherman predicts that the Hagibis will last until Thursday (29 Nov). But I read there's another storm named Mitag (nasib baik bukan G****K) just hit the Philippines. Hopefully it won't reach here especially this weekend.
This photo appeared big on the front page of the Daily Express yesterday with the caption "Villages searching for possessions with only the stilts of their homes remaining in Tg Aru". A friend who stays adjacent to the area said those remaining stilts were actually the aftermath of the September fire (remember?) and not due to the storm/waves. Personally I think if a house is blown like that (with only the stilt remains) it will definitely involve heavy casualties i.e. the occupants must have been blown away themselves.
F2000 weekend will prove to be a great day for on-the-go gourmets, but don't fret about overeating... you can always walk it off on your way to the next attraction! Kids and grownups alike will enjoy the unique amusements on offer, which include an array of inflatable entertainment structures.These oversized inflatables come in six different forms at the street carnival, and offer interesting diversions for guests who'd prefer more interactive and athletic ways to spend their leisure time. Let the kids have a go on the bouncy castle, and watch them bounce away or take turns on its built-in slide.
An inflatable obstacle course serves as an interesting alternative to the playground, and makes for a fun. safe way for kids to while the day away. Be careful that they don't have too much fun. or they might never want to go home! Got a grudge against a former friend? Forget the fist fights. Ask them to come over for F2000 and duke it out in a jousting match. Beat each other senseless with foam batons instead!
Be the first to knock your opponent off the platform and onto a safety bed and be pronounced the victor. Not the aggressive type? No worries, the bungee race is there for you. You and your opponent race against each other through inflatable lanes. Sound simple? Sure, but you'll be harnessed to bungee cords that are anchored to your starting points.
Move too fast or lose your grip and you'll have to start over again! Non-competitive guests can always go for the outdoor wall-climb.Tins simple take on the popular sport lets you inch your way up an inflatable wall, complete with handholds and a safety harness. Don't worry about falling... the whole structure's inflatable, and there's a soft, cushy bed waiting to protect you from the ground. Inflatable structures are made from durable, semi-porous materials such as PVC. and are kept inflated through the use of special blowers that circulate air throughout these gigantic toys.The structures are 100% safe, and make for hours of endless entertainment. And how often can you brag about having taken out a rival in a friendly jousting grudge match? And if all these activities still aren't enough to whet your appetite for entertainment, then check out the great line-up of artists that are set to perform on Saturday.
Anuar Zain and some of your Akademi Fantasia favourites, including Felix. Lotter. Nora. Rich and Candy, will be on hand to make music and merriment.Check out the UIM F2000 World Cup GP this coming weekend. Saturday and Sunday. December 1 and 2. 2007, for plenty of wholesome fun for the whole family.

Menariknya juga separuh akhir Pop Rock Ahad ini, ialah pencalonan nama-nama komposer dan penulis lirik yang agak kurang dikenali. Antaranya adalah nama-nama seperti Lin Li Zhen, PSSN, Taja, Tass, Master G, Denai, Andy Rahman, M. Zulkifli, dan Lawrence. Mungkin mereka telah lama berkarya tapi nama-nama ini bagi saya agak baru dalam gelanggang AJL. Mampukah mereka mara dan mengenepikan nama-nama besar seperi M. Nasir, Ajai, Audi Mok, Aidit Alfiat dan Loloq? Semuanya akan terjawab Ahad ini.
Memang agak sukar menentukan siapa bakal ke final. Jadi untuk memudahkan kerja maka saya pun melakukan cabutan tiket bertuah… =). Hasil cabutan, 5 yang akan ke final ialah.…
1.Janjiku - (Teja/Tass/Sofaz)
2.Farhana – (Denai/Andy Rahman/Jinbara)
3.Destinasi Cinta – (Lin Li Zhen/PSSN/Siti)
4.3 Malam Tanpa Bintang – (Azmeer/Master G/Fiq)
5.Sembunyi – (Aidit Alfiat/Lolog/Misha n Andy)

Exploring the Simud Putih is more for the adventurous, requiring rock climbing skills. The ‘white saliva’ birds’ nests found here are more valuable as they are more difficult to collect. The birds’s nests harvesters are individuals who have nerves of steel and skill honed through years of experience. Dangling precariously from the narrow network of ladders is not the task for the faint hearted! It is not surprising that there are only a few experience individuals who are very much in demand by people and communities that hold the Government’s harvesting licenses. Edible birds’ nests are protected under the Birds Nest Ordinance and the Forest Enactment. Heavy fines and penalties are imposed on unlicensed collectors
Generally two collections are made. The first takes place early in the breeding season before the swiftlets lay their eggs. The birds then make another nest in which they finally lay their eggs. After the young had fledged, the second collection is made. Care must be taken to assure that the nests are collected only after the young swftlets have abandoned these nests. Besides observing the exciting display of skill and courage by the birds’ nests harvesters, another activity for keen naturalists would be to watch the spectacular display of over 2 million or so resident bats as they spiral out for their evening feed. This usually occurs at 5:15 pm and 6:15 pm but rain may delay or ’cancel’ this spectacular event. As the bats leave the swiftlets are usually beginning to make their way back to the caves after a day’s foraging. The changing of ‘shifts’ between the bats and birds makes quite fascinating scene! Look out for the Bat Hawks that linger not far from the scene, as they pray specifically on the bats as they leave their roost
How to get there
Take a 45-minute drive or enjoy a leisurely 6-hour drive from Kota Kinabalu to Sandakan. From Sandakan town make arrangements for a journey to the Kinabatangan region, which is approximately 2 hours by road.

MELBOURNE: Seorang wanita kelahiran Sabah adalah antara perancang utama Parti Buruh Australia (ALP) untuk menewaskan kerajaan Perdana Menteri John Howard dalam pilihan raya umum Australia pada Sabtu ini.
Senator Penny Wong Ying Yen, yang dilihat sebagai bintang sedang menyinar dalam politik Australia, telah berada di ibu pejabat ALP di Sydney sejak enam minggu lepas untuk merancang kekalahan Howard dan parti gabungan Liberal-National pimpinannya yang telah berkuasa sejak 11 tahun lepas.
Wong, 38, wanita kelahiran Asia yang pertama dipilih ke Parlimen Australia, adalah anak kepada arkitek dari Kota Kinabalu, Francis Wong Yit Shing.
Beliau datang ke Adelaide ketika berusia lapan tahun dan selepas pengajiannya menjadi seorang peguam sebelum memenangi kerusi Senat pada 2002 bagi mewakili negeri South Australia.
Jika ALP, yang diketuai Kevin Rudd memenangi pilihan raya kali ini, Wong dijangka dilantik menganggotai kabinet pusat.
Beliau kini merupakan jurucakap parti itu mengenai hal-ehwal pentadbiran awam dan akauntabiliti selain mengenai penyertaan tenaga kerja dan tadbir urus korporat.
Wong juga diramal menjadi Ketua Senat di masa depan, menjadikannya ahli politik ketiga paling berpengaruh di Australia selepas Perdana Menteri dan Timbalan Perdana Menteri.
Menjelang pilihan raya ini, beliau diberi tanggungjawab besar membuat persiapan ke arah peralihan kerajaan jika ALP menang. BERNAMA

SHAH ALAM: Setelah dua tahun tidak bertanding, kemunculan semula Datin Seri Siti Nurhaliza di dalam Muzik-Muzik tidak 'menjadi' apabila beliau gagal terpilih ke peringkat akhir Anugerah Juara Lagu Ke-22 (AJL22) bagi kategori Balada.

Much have been reported lately that the wildlife in the Kinabatangan river plain are under threat by the rapid plantation developement within the vicinity. The rhino for instance is in the verge of extinction. Another wildlife that's been said to have the same fate as the rhinos is the Borneo Pygmy Elephant. A person is considered very lucky to have a glimpse of these animals moving around freely in their natural habitat. The flashing of cameras, as mentioned by this article, upon seeing our version of mr jumbo, reminds me of those photographers at star studded red carpet. No doubt these animals have become the stars of their own...=) . Let's join this writer experiencing the thrill of cruising Sabah's wildlife hotspot...the riverbanks of Kinabatangan...
