Coral Flyer Island to Island Zipline, Pulau Sapi, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

***Updated***


Hey hey hey! Guess what?
I just had the most awesome-mess time at the Coral Flyer!
WORLD'S LONGEST AND ALSO THE FIRST ISLAND TO ISLAND ZIPLINE
IN MALAYSIA! ONLY IN KOTA KINABALU,SABAH!


2 week ago, a group of 12 bloggers and 3 friends set out on an island trip to try the Coral Flyer.
We gathered at 9am in the jetty in Jesselton Point and the best part was we managed to
convince the guy at the counter for student price tickets!

***Note that boat ride from Mainland - Pulau Sapi are at own cost.***



Kendy decided to join us for this trip!

We took a boat to Pulau Sapi first cause' that's where you get your tickets for the Coral Flyer.
Weather was really sunny that day and we decided to chill at Pulau Sapi before
trying out the Coral Flyer.



See that guy in yellow.. that's Mr.Simon Amos!
The owner of Ropeskills Sdn Bhd, Sabah Indoor Climbing Centre AND also the Coral Flyer.

Everyone had to fill in the waiver form before getting on the flying fox.
This is a matter of life and death people! Fill up the form and sign it!!


Our tickets!

Each ticket cost RM50 which includes a boat ride from Pulau Sapi to Padang Point,Pulau Gaya.
That's where the Coral Flyer is.

FYI, the Coral Flyer is meant to be the highlight of the day.
It takes roughly 20 minutes for the whole thing so before that, go swim, snorkel, dive, eat
and do whatever you like before that.

We chose a spot where we could see the Coral Flyer!

Look at that view!
If you look closer in the picture, you see the red balls hanging in between the islands?
That's where there zipline is!

It is recommended to go in a group of 4.
This is because the each time you go down the zipline, you will go down in pairs.
So this might take some time before the next group goes on the Coral Flyer!


Here's our boat to take us over to Padang Point!
Our boat is the one with a flat yellow roof!

Our boatmen, Tai and Syn Jaya (the cute guy with the cowboy hat)!
Yong (in green) is the receptionist at the counter in Pulau Sapi.



There will be a sign leading you to the zipline.
(NO its not the monkey sign)

These are the trolleys for the zipline. The thingy you hold on to while going down the zipline.
Looks really cool right!! Oh and really heavy too!

 You will be strapped on to a full body harness before heading up to the platform.

Now here's a little info for you guys about the staffs for the Coral Flyer.
There are a total of 10 staffs in charge of the Coral Flyer.
In case you guys are wondering if they are qualified to be running this zipline..
Yes I can assure you that they are all qualified with Level 1 - 3 ARAA qualifications.
You can read all about it here.

You will be given a helmet to put on too!
For those who has a GoPro, you can bring em' along cause' they have a gropro mount
set up on the helmets for everyone. Yay Coral Flyer!!

Safety first!

You will then be needed to trek up a small trail which leads you all the way up to the 
launching platform. You will be so awed by the view up there! Its just beautiful!

See what I mean!

How long is the zipline?
Well, its approximately 235m long!

The staffs will then get you set up on the zipline, double checking your harness,
helmets and everything else that needs to be checked before letting you off!

AND OFF YOU GO!!!


Make sure to look around while you're on the way down!

Chloe and I paired up for the zipline and we had such an amazing time!
She was filming the view all the way down while I was busy screaming my lungs out.



This is the Zip Stop!
The Zip Stop uses a magnetic braking mechanism.
The Zip Stop cost roughly around USD 5,000.00  which is around RM 17,500.00 each!
OMG!!!

I also heard from Mr.Simon that this whole thing took them less than a year to build 
and everything costs roughly around RM 350,000.00 - RM 500,000.00.
WOW!!

Check out the view from the landing platform.

A group photo with my peeps before trekking off to our spot at the beach.
I love the part where you have to do trekking up and down the trail!


Another info for those who have kids that they would like to bring along to the Coral Flyer,
you can get in on the fun by zipping in Tandem with your kids 
OR you can get one of the staffs to pair up with your kids too!

DIY : Cropped Tank Top

Cropped Top - DIY Inner Blue Top - F.O.S Ripped Denim Shorts - Miss OCD Tribal Necklace - Red City, Centre Point
Here's another DIY done by Yours Truly!

I've made all these from really BIG tshirts I found in my closet. Since I'm not gonna wear em' so why not reconstruct the shirts into something else.
Here are the steps to making your very own Cropped Tank Top!
Supplies that you need :
Big Tshirts and Scissors

Step One : Cut off the sleeves. Cut at least 1cm away from the seams.
Step Two : Cut the collar part off. Then try on the shirt!  If the sleeves are too thick cut it again til the sleeves becomes slightly thinner.
Step Three : Cut off the bottom hems off and pull the fabric on all the part that you cut till it loosens and rolls up.
Then..YOU'RE DONE! This is how mine turned out.
Really simple right?

Here's another step to make another different style for your cropped tank top!
Supplies that you need :
Big Tshirt , Scissors, Buttons, Pencil, Thread and Ne…

Cotton On Malaysia

T.G.I.F y'all! How was everyone's week so far?
Its already October! How times flies! Would like to apologize for disappearing for a while as I have been really busy with work,climbing and also other events.
A few days ago, I was thinking about shopping for bras and shoes somewhere around town but I didn't have the time to do so. Then Elaine suggested I shop online in Cotton On Malaysia. It never came across my mind to shop in Cotton On and I'm a huge fan of Cotton On.

*click for better view*

Its really worth shopping with Cotton On online cause' most of the
things you see online they don't sell it here locally. All you have to do is just
sign up and you'll automatically get a 30% discount code to shop with and I kid you
not everything is super cheap! Their sales can go up to 70% and its madness!
Things can go from as low as Rm2.00 and seriously who doesn't love sales?

Product Review : Ronasutra Mineral Makeup

A month ago,
I ordered a bunch of mineral makeups fromRonasutra.
I have been a loyal user of Ronasutra for years now and I really love how their products are good for sensitive skin like mine.
Their price ranges are very affordable.

Back when I first discovered Ronasutra products ,  I was feeling a little skeptical on trying out their products but reading their infos and reviews from blogs and youtubers, I decided to give it a go.  Went on to their website and browsed around and I realized how much this brand has grown. 

This is my favourite category in the whole website. Look at all the different shades and tones they came out with. I'm currently using the one in the shade (04 Honey) which is sold out at the moment.
I just found out about their skincare line and I love the packaging. I am so looking into trying out their skincare products in the future.
I even tried out their blusher before and I really love how well it blends on the skin and how lasting it is on my cheeks. I us…

Product Review : Yves Rocher, Cosmétique Végétale®

Last month, I was given an opportunity to try out Yves Rocher products.
I heard of this brand before but never knew we had one outlet in Suria mall!
I received a box of products to try out!

Love the red ribbon!

Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Toner, Hydra Vegetal 24 Rich Hydrating Cream, Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Cleansing Milk, Sexy Pulp Lash Plumping Mascara,  Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Raspberry Silky Body Lotion and Moment de Bonheur Eau de Parfum.
Yves Rocher produces products which uses natural organic plants. They harvest their own plants and extract the best ingredients from the plants.  Their products are manufactured in their factories in Bretagne, France.
Sexy Pulp Lash Plumping Mascara
I love the brush! Makes it easy to apply on and it gives  that really full look if you want those volumized looking eyelashes!
 Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Raspberry Silky Body Lotion
The lotion smells really nice and fruity!  I love it cause of its non-oily texture. It doesn't have that oily and stick…
