Day 3: Brown Sand of Kota Kinabalu

On our last day in KK, we woke up a bit late and was sweetly taking our time as we prepare to check out. We had another round of delicious Malaysian breakfast then off to Le Meridien. We thought of riding the bus but it was taking too long so we walked going there under the heat of the sun.

When we (+Jomar+Svet+Mitch, and I) arrived there, Mama +Chelle and +Wayne were missing. They arrived around an hour later after having breakfast. We decided to chill in the huge room and later on had lunch in the recommended place nearby Kedai Kopi Seng Hing Sunsuran. They serve good food and I loved their Tuaran Mee (it's a dried noodle dish that originated from the town of Tauran in East Sabah).

Curry, Sweet & Sour Pork, Fried Fish, Tuaran Mee, Laksa and Tom Yum

After lunch, we went back to the hotel and changed into our beach outfit. We went to the Prince Philip Park. The brown fine sand is really nice. It's not sticky though I will never be a fan of the beach.

Nearly two hours in the beach and hoping to see a glimpse of the sunset in KK, it started drizzling and raining so we had to go back to the hotel. We had another round of fun pool bonding and enjoyed the hot whirlpool - so relaxing. Afterwards, we walked around near the hotel in search for a place to have dinner and we end up eating in Toscani's. It's an Italian Pizza-Pasta place that served seafood dishes as well. The highlight of the night would be the oysters! It was my first time to eat oysters and they tasted great!

Before going back to the hotel, we purchased snacks (I had no idea what they were but they gave us free taste so we could choose from the different available products) from the nearby market (my brother loved all the snacks so much!).

After packing all out stuff, we went to the airport and said goodbye to Kota Kinabalu!

Review of Joy Bus: The Deluxe Coach of Genesis Transport, Inc.

During my trip to Baguio last March 2, 2013, Jomar and I (as recommended by friends) decided to try the Joy Bus of Genesis. We went to the bus terminal the day before just to make sure we have a ticket going to Baguio and asked for the cell phone number of the person to contact in Baguio so we could reserve our returning ticket. Reservation Number in Baguio 0906-591-6011. She doesn't reply though.

Let's help build a home for my birthday

My birthday is coming up (it's on November 8) and instead of gifts, I am hoping you could donate to Compassion.ca, specifically in helping Kenyan families rebuild their lives by providing stable homes. With Safe Housing, we can all make a difference in providing stable homes to 149 families in 11 centers across Kenya.



We all dream of having our own house. I know I do. But when we think about having our own home, we think about how many bedroom and bathrooms we want, what color scheme we will use on the wall, the style of our kitchen. Meanwhile, these families just want shelter from strong winds and torrential rain and I hope that we can make a difference.

For a minimum of $10 CAD, you will give me a birthday gift and we will help provide a home to this families.

Give a Gift

My fundraiser code is 8-10011711 so Compassion can keep track of this little campaign. Please feel free to share this short post to your friends and help me celebrate my birthday this year!
