Land below the Wind


Holidays! Finally some holidays!!! First holiday destination of the year 2011 is to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah also known as "the land below the wind". It's my first time to the East Coast of Malaysia and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. Thanks to the driving skill of Behn and Clive's GPS system, we manage to find our way around. We visited several places namely, Pulau Tiga (aka Survivors Island because the 1st season of Survivors was filmed here), Manukan Island, Kundasang and around KK town.

The first series of photos will be on Manukan Island, about 15 minutes away from KK town. The water is crystal clear, and schools of fishes were swimming freely largely ignoring the human crowd.

Clive and Behn, fish spa-ing.


Manukan Island.


Delicious Yee Fung curry laksa at Gaya Street and fresh prawns among other during our seafood feasting! There are some very delicious food in Kota Kinabalu and the seafood is really really fresh!


Lido Square! Exploring the market early in the morning.


The nasi lemak in Lido Square is very very good! The Rendang Beef is very tender and the curry squid or "sotong" is very thin and fresh!


Behn and Clive queuing to buy the nasi lemak.






The pick-up place to Pulau Tiga aka Survivors Island.


The girls!




The Jetty at Survivor's island. The sky wasn't the best, cloudy all day long.

The Mud Volcano. One of the attraction in this island.




Dip dip... we sent out the girls to try the mud out :P


Behn was really enjoying himself with all the attention he was getting.




Clive stuck in the mud? Nah... just pretending. haha...


Nicole covered in mud.


Sherina... there were two Sherina in this trip! Okay, actually this is Sherina and the other is Sherrina with an additional "r".


Tang and his leica!




The beach at Survivor's Island.




There is the whole gang at Survivor Island. Shouldn't have had asked the cook to snap a photo for us, some of us were nearly out of the frame.


We found some awesome graffiti at an open site inside Kota Kinabalu town.










On the way up to Kundasang.


The tip of Mount Kinabalu.






The cow farm at Kundasang. The clouds were very low and it's very misty here.










The one and only brown and white cow here.














It's been a fun and relaxing trip in Kota Kinabalu! But I just can't wait for my next trip! That's all for now folks!
