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.
Delicious sliced fish noodle at Kedai Kopi Houng Kee, Damai.
Average tasting tom yam bee hoon at a restaurant in Kingfisher.
Swamp eel and bullfrogs! Any takers?
My all-time favourite pan mien, Damai.
Party Play Lifestyle Cafe, Lintas.
Default drink – cafe latte
Dinner at Welcome Seafood Restaurant in the city.
Fish paste and beef noodle at Kuok Ming’s branch at Suria Sabah’s food court.
Sang Nyuk noodle at Melanian’s branch at Inanam. Simply delicious.
Kueh from Kak Nong’s Sembulan branch. My Mother’s favourite, though a little pricey at RM1.80/pc.
Hand-picked gift from the garden by nephew
Toast and teh c from a coffee shop in KK town. Forgot its name.
Selection of seafood available at Ocean Seafood Restaurant in town.
… and others.
Famous Tamparuli noodle, our brunch on the way to Kundasang.
Durians sold at the road side. We bought a few to enjoy at the balcony of our resort in Kundasang.
Celyn Resort, Kundasang. It was cold and wet during the time we were there.
Our home for the night. Two rooms, a living room, and a kitchenette for about RM900/night.
Bug hunting with the nephew
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.
Along the way, we stopped at this pottery in Tuaran.
Filipino Market. Popular with the tourists. Do go only if you have good bargaining skill.
At Salut Seafood restaurant, about 30-minute drive from town.
Loving the sunset!
So good I forgot to take a picture of it BEFORE consumption.
My final night in KK was spent talking to a friend at Shangrila’s Tanjung Aru Resort.
I’ll be back… soon.
