Dec 2011 – These pictures were taken during my trip back to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, East Malaysia for my 2-week holiday. Expect total randomness.

My ex-schoolmate – Soo San, who just got back to Singapore, went to Changi International Airport to send me off. Such a sweet gesture!

I had dim sum for brunch at Wong Kwok Restaurant, Damai. Highly recommended. If you do not wish to wait for an available table at the ground level of the restaurant, do proceed to the 1st floor. It is much quieter.

Initially, we planned for a 3 day-2 night stayover. However, due to constant drizzling, we could not do much except to stay indoor. Now, that would not usually be a problem, except that my 5 year old restless nephew was with us. So, we checked out and drove home.

20120320-010334.jpg
Along the way, we stopped at this pottery in Tuaran.

    hi, may i know your stay at Celyn resort, it is enough to accodomate about 6 adults and children as i planning to stay at the villa also, it is well worth the stay or u got better suggestion to stay @ kudasang?

    • 4 adults will fit comfortably. Beyond that will be squeeze-y. I’m no expert of Kundasang, but u can try J Residence or Pine Resort. Perkasa Hotel is u r not on a budget. Have fun!
