As this year 2012, I have planned only to travel within Malaysia especially focusing in Sabah & Sarawak, long term passport is not needed. I was introduced to PTB passport a.k.a Passport Terhad Brunei (the Ristricted Passport entering only Brunei Darulsalam) . But unluckily, I wasn’t able to apply for the blue passport (PTB) was out of stock! Coincident ey…
Well, I always believe nothing is impossible as long as we tried. My friend then suggested to travel through express boats from Limbang to Labuan then transit to Kota Kinabalu. I love that idea indeed for I could experience the journey.
Limbang – Labuan ferry transfer: One departure daily at 0800hrs. It cost RM30 per passenger.
Labuan – Kota Kinabalu ferry transfers: Two departures daily, 0830hrs / 1300hrs. It cost RM39 per first class passenger and RM32 per second class passenger.

It took 2 hours from Limbang to Labuan. Both of those ferry condition was great and comfortable. It was indeed a memorable Sarawak, Limbang trip. Mrs. Tracy Tunung Udan, a sweet and humble lady, also the mother of my Limbang friend, whom is also an immigration officer came to bid me good bye at the terminal. Her humbleness touched me. Although it was only a 3 days 2 nights stay with them, I felt like knowing them long time ago. I was given their locally produced brown rice and special made fish namely ‘Ikan Tahai’.
It took me another 3 hours from Labuan to Kota Kinabalu. I am very happy and grateful for the opportunity to travel to Sarawak again after so many years. Dear Sarawak… I will be back!!
