Haha you see it right! It’s Similajau! Don’t misunderstood k it’s not a bad word or so. There’s really such place! It’s a National Park in Sarawak! I thought it’s wonderful name so just go and check the place out but it’s rather disappointed with the condition!
I have been there last year but the water is so dirty and nothing much to see the seriously! Check out the video on the sea!
Other than the dirty and sandy sea water, the place is actually very nice but I think not really well maintain so that make it a bit run down.
You can still see or catch little crab there! Quite fun and there’s not much ppl there so if you go in a group of friends will be better rather than 2 persons than it might be quite dangerous.
Check out I did a Side Kick there! Quite flexible right? =)
SIMILAJAU NATIONAL PARK, SARAWAK
Similajau National Park, just 45 minutes from Bintulu, provides a great weekend getaway for the people within the central region of Sarawak. It has one of the most beautiful coastal areas in Malaysia with miles of unspoiled white and golden sand and rocky beaches facing the South China Sea.
Gazetted in 1978, it covers 7,064 hectares of virgin coastal forest, starting from Sungai Likau in the south to Similajau River in the north. Spanning 30km, it is abundant in flora and fauna and offers you a wonderful experience exploring miles and miles of empty beach.
The terrestrial fauna of the park boasts 24 recorded species of mammals, such as gibbons, banded langurs and long-tailed macaques. A very noteworthy reptile found here is the Saltwater Crocodile.
The Park has also recorded 230 species of birds, which include hornbills and migratory water birds like Storms Stork. If you’re lucky, you might be able to see dolphins out amongst the waves. Occasionally, green turtles come ashore to lay their eggs.

South Korea’s Samsung Electronics has already planned out an aggressive legal strategy to block sales of Apple’s unannounced iPhone 5 when it arrives in Korea. Samsung will file lawsuits to try to block the sale of Apple’s iPhone 5 as part of its global legal tussle with the US technology giant.
The two firms are at loggerheads in a series of patent lawsuits over the technology and design of their smartphones and tablet computers. It was unclear whether Samsung would seek a sales ban of the Apple iPhone 5, only in South Korea or internationally.
The patent war between Apple vs Samsung has quickly escalated since the iPhone maker fired the first shot in April. At least 23 lawsuits are pending between Samsung and Apple across a number of countries. Apple has seen a few early victories against Samsung, including a permanent ban preventing its rival from selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in Germany.
Samsung vs Apple
So will Apple iPhone 5 be able to launch next month? Will Samsung win the lawsuits against Apple and ban the sales of iPhone 5? Yet to tell and whether it will be launching in Malaysia?? Who knows? Let’s see~!
Samsung to seek iPhone 5 ban in Korea, report says
The iPhone 5 hasn’t even been announced yet, and already Samsung is planning to ban its sale in South Korea, a new report claims.
According to the Korea Times, citing sources with knowledge of the matter, Samsung will file suit against Apple for violating its patents related to wireless communications as soon as possible after the Cupertino, Calif.-based company launches its follow-up to the iPhone 4. In that lawsuit, the Korea Times’ sources say, Samsung will request the court ban all sales of the device.
“For as long as Apple does not drop mobile telecommunications functions, it would be impossible for it to sell its i-branded products without using our patents,” a Samsung source reportedly told Korea Times. “We will stick to a strong stance against Apple during the lingering legal fights.”
The Korea Times report is just the latest entry in the ongoing legal saga between Apple and Samsung. Over the last several months, the companies have ramped up their bitter patent battle, taking it all over the world. As of this writing, the companies are battling it out in the U.S., Australia, across Europe, and in parts of Asia.
So far, Apple has gotten the better of Samsung. In Australia, the iPhone maker was able to get Samsung to agree to show it three Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet designs before it sells the single version that Apple allows. Earlier this month, Apple successfully stopped the sale of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany, following an earlier, overturned ruling by a German court that temporarily banned the sale of Samung’s tablet across the EU.
But it’s not just tablets. Both companies claim that the other’s smartphones violate their patents, as well. And so far, neither side has budged.
Apple has been especially critical of Samsung over the last several months. In South Korea, Apple filed a complaint against Samsung, saying that its products have been copied.
“[Samsung's] products…blatantly imitate the appearance of Apple’s products to capitalize on Apple’s success,” Apple said in its complaint in June. “The copying has been widely observed in the industry and has been mentioned in multiple articles reviewing Samsung products.”
For its part, Samsung has left most of the talking for the courtroom, deciding instead to say publicly that it will “continue to actively defend and protect our intellectual property.”
This time around, Samsung has not immediately responded to a CNET request for comment on its lawsuit plans against the iPhone 5. Apple has also not immediately responded to CNET’s request for comment.
That said, there’s no telling what either side can say. Apple has so far remained tight-lipped on the iPhone 5 and hasn’t even acknowledged that the device will launch anytime soon. What’s more, the rumor mill can’t even keep it straight: some reports suggest the device will launch this month, while others say it won’t happen until October.
The next iPhone will be out soon, and Samsung’s legal team is going to be nice and ready for it: the company’s told the Korea Times that it’s already working on a national sales ban.
If a Korean court granted Samsung the injunction, it’d be an unprecedented victory in the tedious patent slap fight between the two companies (during which only Apple has landed a few slaps).
Once again, Samsung claims the iPhone 5 will step on its own patents. Will it prevail? Probably not. The company’s been unable to prove its case before judges around the world, and given the likelihood that the 5 will be largely similar to its predecessor, their luck isn’t likely to improve. This sounds more like chest-thumping than legal prowess. [Korea Times via Apple Insider]
Samsung Plans to Sue Apple as Soon as iPhone 5 Arrives [REPORT]
Although the next generation of Apple‘s iPhone hasn’t yet been released, and no details about the device have been given, Samsung already plans to try to ban its sales in Korea, the Korea Times reports citing unnamed industry sources.
The legal battle between the two companies has been raging for months, with Apple managing to ban the sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab as well as some variants of the Galaxy S smartphone in several countries, including the Netherlands and Australia.
The companies also sued each other in Korea: Apple on the grounds of Samsung copying the iPhone and iPad product range, while Samsung’s countersuit has been more technology-based.
“For as long as Apple does not drop mobile telecommunications functions, it would be impossible for it to sell its i-branded products without using our patents. We will stick to a strong stance against Apple during the lingering legal fights,” said a senior Samsung executive.
For now, Apple is winning the patent lawsuit war, but the next generation iPhone is one of the most anticipated gadgets of the year. If Samsung should manage to delay its launch — even only in Korea — it would be a nasty setback for Apple.

This movie is about a Young Chef Huang (Namewee 黃明志) struggles to get his restaurant business going because he cannot adapt to the “localized” cooking his patrons are looking for. However, contradict to his unpopular cuisine, he is also well-know as “Hero Huang” in the local neighborhood where he carries out good deed in helping the community until he met Xiao K (Karen Kong 龔柯允) who get him into deep trouble.
In order to get his life and the restaurant business back on track, Check Huang must now seek help from a mysterious hawker stall lady (Adibah Noor), who summons him to embark on the extraordinary journey of his life. Durng this self-enlightening experience, he will also meet many “local heroes” each lending their support to help him re-discover his roots and the real hidden message of “Nasi Lemak”.
Starring : Namewee, Adibah Noor, Karen Kong, Afdlin Shauki, Dato’ David Arumugam, Reshmonu, Kenny & Chee, Nadine Ann Thomas, Nur Fathia, Dennis Lau, Dian Sharlin, Pete Teo, Ho Yuhang, Felixia Yea, and many more.
Some of the famous phrases that you could not forget : 宝贝 *Muack Muack* Walaoeh.. SONG ar~~ Lai Liao Lai Liao..!!! 哗佬呵…慡伢…來料…來料!!! 死 “蓝桥” Sei Lan Qiao Curry Neh! 让我们一起做咖哩咧。。。让我们一起吃咖哩咧。。。<sounds like *干你呐 / KNN!*>
Some of the scene that it’s criticize some of the services in Malaysia like our Broadband Service Slow, No Electricity, No Water, also touching on some politic and social issues etc…
All in all, I feel it’s great and it’s just some constructive comment that will bring improvement but it also that might being used as points to take this movie down from cinema and stop screening!
Nasi Lemak 2.0 might stop screening next week. Those who have not watched it pls do so and support such a good movie!
Why wanna ban Nasi Lemak 2.0? It’s nothing wrong! It’s already approved by the censor board and now wanna ban the movie just related to the old incident of the Namewee song Negarakuku?! It’s a truly 1Malaysia Movie and you see all races involved and supported in this Nasi Lemak 2.0, if it’s wrong then why do you think the actors and actress will support in this movie?! Diam Lar!
Some of the reasons that quoted by others against the movie:
4.Orang Cina balik China(回中国论）
OMG This Video is Damn Geng ah! Must watch and share! It voice out the about the ban! Why should this Nasi Lemak ban? Watch and support, don’t ban the movie!
Even this movie was shot in low cost and budgets from the sponsor but Namewee still able to complete the whole movie using DSLR only (Canon EOS 5DMKII)!
Namewee 黃明志 deserved all the credits. It’s a really good Malaysia “Localized” movie. Local production by Malaysian to Malaysians. I thinking whether this movie will be screening in Singapore too? Keep up the good work and I’m sure there’s there’s more talented Malaysian out there will do the same and we will have more quality Malaysian produced movies!
Now who want to sponsor Saimatkong for a new movie? Haha…
Some of the history of how Namewee 黃明志 want to apply for the funding of the Nasi Lemak 2.0 辣死你媽 but still failed and yet the movie Nasi Lemak 2.0 辣死你媽 is now screening in the cinema with very minimum funding for some sponsor and I hope there’s more talented Malaysian out there will be able to produce such quality movie!
