Sabah

Finally, some pics from Sabah. For those of you who do not know, I was in Sabah for 4 days with my parents. As usual, AirAsia was late so we were at the LCCT till 7:30pm. We arrived in KK pretty late and guess what we had for dinner/supper... bak kut teh! Spent the night at dad's development company's apartment and the next day we headed off to Ranau, where the national park is. I did not enjoy the trip. That is the truth. I enjoyed the scenery very much but because of the time we spent on the road, it was more or less hell for me. Yes, I have motion sickness.

Ok, I'll let the pictures do the talking. However, I would like to let you guys know that if you have not been to Sabah, please do. The greenery there is amazing. I'm glad that our government has managed to preserve some parts of Malaysia. This part is especially precious due to the vast rainforest, or should I say, botanists' heaven. Some say that the rainforest we have in Sabah may be the oldest in the world! Whoa, the proud feeling I felt when I heard a British lady say that while trekking....

Yes, yes, I'm zipping my mouth now...

Mount Kinabalu in all her majesty...



To get to our little chalet, we had to go up this steep hill...


There's even a balcony for you to relax and enjoy the view from your room... and check out the fireplace and Astro!


And look at the grey stones on the white wall. Don't you think they add character?


I saw my first green snail in Sabah...


On the last day of our holiday, we had so-called dinner at Jesselton Hotel. According to dad, they served really good curry laksa when he was there 5 years ago. Now, it seemed as thought they had switched to Italian cuisine. They even had an angmoh chef (presumably Italian). Two thumbs up for the food! Below was what I had for dessert. It's ice-cream (vanilla and chocolate) filled in a ball of hard chocolate coated with coffee powder. Hmmm......


Sabah, Land Below the Wind, the place where I began my year - year 2007, the Year of the Golden Boar.
