Kampung Melilas

Finally, I manage to go to Kampung Melilas. This is my first time there. Took us around 2 hours 40 minutes to reach there by boat from Sungai Mau. Took some photos and videos there. Also signed the visitors book in the Longhouse

Overall.... very nice trip, good experience, tiring (especially total around 5 hours sitting down in the small boat) and at least I can say that I've been to Melilas.

Yesterday, me and my colleague was suppose to do a site survey at Melilas. We started out our journey from office (Kiulap) around 7:40am. I've already made an appointment to meet up with a couple of Telbru staffs nearby Sungai Liang Mosque by 8:30am.

From Sungai Liang we drove to Sungai Mau which is around 10 to 15 minutes drive at Jalan Labi. At Sungai Mau a small boat waited us to bring us to Melilas. Since now is a rainy season, I was told that it should only take us around 3 hours to reach our destination by boat. If it were dry season it can take more than 4 hours to reach there.

Almost one hour into our boat ride suddenly our boat engine broke down. The boat driver told us that we have no choice but to row back to Sungai Mau. 5 minutes then we saw a boat approaching us... it's the Melilas Imam going back to Melilas. We stop him... our boat driver ask him if he can pull us back to Sungai Mau which he willingly accepted. 

It took almost 2 hours for us to go back as we can't really go that fast! We were actually lucky.... for one hour I didn't see any other boat pass by us.
