Welcome To Sabah

I figured there's nothing left to blog about MDG Season 2 Finale, so I'll be blogging about my trips again. I don't want to keep posting photos of ruins, so I'll be continuing with Cambodia only after I finish this one.

So now you know what is this about. :D

I'll cut the long story short.
I traveled to Kota Kinabalu on the 1st of May 2009 by flight. Arrived at Terminal 2, took a taxi to Terminal 1 to meet up with the rest of the gang. Took another taxi to the hotel for that night, checked in, then left the room to venture around for a bit, and to get some dinner. The town, at night, is a pretty scary place. lol~

We checked out on the following day to transfer to another hotel, and to meet up with the bigger part of the gang. More walking, food, then it was time for our boat ride.

Off to Manukan Island.

It's a pretty OK place, if not for the crowd. Seriously, to get from one spot to another, you have to walk in a line. Freaking traffic congestion.

Photos, photos, photos~

Anchovies, very small fishes. More well known as Ikan Bilis.

We did not play in the sea, spent most of our time shooting photos. And since there was nothing much to do, we called our boat and headed back to town for more food, and more shooting as we were walking back to the hotel.

I suppose most Shouters know who this is already :D

And we waited for the sunset, but later in the evening the weather turned crappy, the sun was blocked by clouds. Everything was covered in plain boring blue, no sun rays, no horizon.

After I returned from the trip, I learned from a friend of mine who stays in Sabah, that the first week of May this year, is a lousy time to go to Sabah. *slaps forehead*

Nevertheless, a good experience. And dang, I miss the beach.
