after driving for approximately 3 hours, covering about 200km from kota kinabalu, we arrived in kudat. first stop was at this coffeeshop – kedai air sekerim nam sin.

i love this pastry with strawberry filling… and we were in for a treat as they just brought these out from the oven.

then we checked ourselves into hotel ria, which is located near the ferry terminal to pulau banggi.

the rate for a room with twin beds is about RM80 per night. nice and clean, reasonably priced too. highly recommended.

we wasted no time and immediately drove to the end of the esplanade to take a few shots. unfortunately, the sun proved to be too much for us and we were soon headed back to our hotel room for a quick nap.

when the sun set, we decided to explore the town on foot…

we then had our seafood dinner at this popular spot – gerai makan dan minum 2899. cheap and good.

we had prawns, squid and fish. yummy! but crabs, scallops and venison were unavailable that night. to book in advance, call 016 831 7338.
we ended our night early, reading in our room.

the next morning, after having the famous yong tau fu (stuffed tofu) and chun ken (eggroll), we checked out of our hotel and drove back to kota kinabalu.
