0 Going on a Picnic + Portraits

I am not known as a picnicker but, there is always first time for everything. My family and i went to Tips of Borneo ( Simpang Mengayau) , Kudat last Saturday. I was hesitated at first because i know that this place is amazing but, there is not much to do there if you are not a surfer , if you are not staying at the chalet there other than dining around there. Mom did not approved the idea to stay there, she was too worried if my little son cannot adapt to the new place. So, she makes us to go picnic there. Some of relatives who been there few times, agrees that picnic is the best way to go. 

I really didn't ready  much for the whole thing. Mom basically prepares all the food from home. Nasi briyani, fried sausages and tempura nuggets. We got many snacks and sweets with us too. While my aunt, cooked fried noodle, fried rice, salted fish and the scrambled eggs. They got many local delicacies too that i do not even know the names though. *blush blush

So , after that day, i was kinda imagining if we could do this again and do it better.Here are some tips that you might want to put into your check list before going on a picnic to have a perfect one. Well, our picnic was not that perfect but, i thought that there are lots of things that can be done if we are planning on going for picnic again.

To ensure an enjoyable, delicious simple food, comfy and still looking good...
You must

Never forget a spread,tablecloth but our humid country it is better to bring mat to spread on the ground. So, it will be easy for us to gather around with the food in the center. Forget the little messy cabanas by the beachside. You can find many of it in Malaysia's beachsides. It is best if you could find your own perfect spot to sit down and enjoy.

Umbrella. Big one.

Finger food or anything as long as they do not melted or will 'rot' under the heat of the sun . Fruits are the best desserts for a picnic.

Frozen drinks. When you are ready to drink, they will still taste cool.

To keep the kids happy,bring their favorite snacks.

Wear sunblocks though it may seem cloudy,uv rays sting through clouds.

Flip flops.or Flats.

Common Sense,do not wear heavy makeups or you get the zombie wonderland looks when it's all coming down melt and CreasES.

I did not upload any photos of the picnic because we were too hungry to snap all the good food.

Check this out too.....

Photo rolls. I hope you enjoy it though maybe you do not know anyone here. They were more to portraits. What can i say, i love portraits. These are my lovely family..... I was so wanting to take group photos at the cut globe scuplture   but, there were just too many people there on that day crowding the iconic cut-off globe. Too many, and we had to take turns to take picture.

Chris looked upset because he begged so that he could walked on her own.

There's always something about kids and their grannies , don cha think?

With my handsome jewel who just can't wait for another snap . He really need to get moving right away.

My current Facebook cover photos... of course my personal profile one.

Tips of Borneo said to be the nicest beach in North Borneo, overlooking the South China Sea. Apart from the crazy cliff, beautiful rocks, splashing wave that attracts surfers from around the world, white sand beaches,  well accommodated it is just a beautiful serene places to go if you want to escape from the city. But, of course escaping means bumpy potholed roads in Sabah. You just can't get away with it especially in Northern Sabah.I won't want to go any further on that.

That's all. Hope you enjoy reading this entry. Til my next entry, chaw!
