Awesome And Magical Mt. Bromo! – Part 2
By the time you read this, I should be in the bus on the way to scale another mountain. This time to Sungei Lembing in Pahang, Malaysia, where food has been promised to be much better but let’s not jump the gun. Back to Mount Bromo. Day 2…
Before the not so happening breakfast back at the hotel, we journeyed to the Sea of Sand at the foothills of the mountains called “Whispering Sands”. There was “Human Interest” session where a local model was engaged for portrait shoots (2 sessions one before breakfast and another after lunch).
This “human interest” was a hot itinerary amongst the guys in the group. Lol…
They kept inching forward like guerrillas in a battle for the best spot.
Vanessa also took to it and so I tried my hand, too.
I am terrible at portraits but what the heck!
Well, here’s my take of the Bromo
sleeping beauty 😀
I think I did better with this shot.
I’m imagining wild wild west with the theme “The good, the bad and the ugly” playing in my head, hahaha…
The sheer vastness of this land and the giant mountains kept me in awe!
I literally leapt with joy when we were going back to the hotel!
I’ve been denied nature’s call for almost 12 hours now!
The journey back was most welcome as some rest after brekkie was promised. We had been out since 2am and it was 10.30am before we finally settled down for our morning meal.
The usual fare of breakfast serve – one rice and noodle dish and the live station of eggs.
Adequate for sustenance but we didn’t come here for the food! 😀
Back at the hotel, we had some time after breakfast and before the afternoon photography session began so I roamed the grounds of the resort where we stayed. There’s an idyllic farm right next to us.
Isn’t this idyllic?
I asked the steward how I could go about to this place and he directed me.
This is so cool!
We don’t get to see this type of scenery or natural environment in Singapore
It was almost sacred to enter this surreal environment, uncorrupted by city dwellers.
If I had wings, I’ll fly away like these 3 little “dickie” birds 😀
Happy traveling and bonding 😀
