6th & 7th day in Sabah, 24th & 25th May 07

on the 24th we didnt reli go anywhere..gina came n pick us up n we went to Wisma Merdeka for shopping but nothing much there..but i bought my mask there..(skin food rice mask)...then later on we went to Potato's house for dinner..and then her dad send us bac to Cyril's place..

on the 25th..we went for brunch somewhere near kaeseng's place but i couldnt remember the name..n we ate "char kuey tiau", spring chicken, a bit of dim sum n the most important we ate "wo tip"( rachel claim that sabah's "wo tip" is the best !!).we tried the fried one n the steam ones.personally i prefer the steam ones..after tat we were so full..

after that we went to Likas Square to buy some local nuts to bring bac to KL and i bought some Sabah Handmande Chocolate..den after tat we left for Karambunai..(hooray..another tanning at the beach !!)Karambunai is a luxury resort.If u prefer only beach holiday, i would say Karambunai would be a not bad place but personally i stil prefer manukan !!

after karambunai we went back to cyril's place n clean ourself up coz after all the salty sea water we are all so sticky.we did not join cyril n his parents for dinner bcoz gina is bringing us to this place name "upperstar" for dinner..i love that place..the atmosphere was good n the food there is not pricey..

so after we ordered wat we wanted. time for me n st to camwhore before the food arrives..haha

right after this pic was taken, our drinks arrived.me and estee shared a fresh fruit juice n a cocktail name "singapore sling" but i prefer the one from Singapore Airlines..

and next was the food we ordered.......
we reli enjoy ourselves there..the surroundings n the music was great..after dinner gina brought us to this place name little taiwan to drink "zhen zhu nai cha"..this is a bit diff bcoz they use tiny black pearls which is said to be originally imported from taiwan..(till today i stil mis little taiwan's drinks)
after hanging at "little taiwan" for about an hour gina sent us home..we were already very sleepy...took bath n went to bed coz kaeseng will be bringing us to this place name "menggatal" tomorrow...

5th day in Sabah , 23rd May 07

we woke up early too this morning coz we are goin to Pulau Manukan (the main purpose of this trip was to go to beaches)...kaeseng came n pick us up n go for breakfast n den to Jesselton Port to take a speed boat to Pulau Manukan...it will take about 25 minutes to arrive the Pulau from Jesselton Port..

the beach was so gorgeous..fell in love with it immediately..the seawater was so clear n u can see so many different fishes even at the shore...i was so feeling so hot due to the weather so right after putting on sun block, straight away "terjun" into the sea...gosh !! i stil remember how it felt...i jus couldnt find a word to describe the beauty of manukan...( me n my jimuis are beach freaks !!)

i wanted so much to snorkel n see how beauty are the fishes n corals but i was afraid n estee n the rest was like keep on asking me to go down n float but i resist coz i was afraid...to think back of it now i felt funny, y at tat moment i was afraid to go down..after much persuasion i went wif yien..gosh !! its so beautiful..n the sea cucumbers are so cute !! i never seen a real living sea cucumber..and after tat we went further..i have never swim with fishes so near before in my life..they are just right infront of ur eyes..when u bring ur bread out..all the fishes will come to u..its awesome..an experience n feeling tat i never will forget...its such an amazing feeling..no words can decribe how i felt at tat time..(since we dont have a water proof camera we didnt take any pics..but they are all locked in my heart )

after that me and estee went for parasailing...the view was fantastic...yien went on the speed boat to help us take pics....the view of the sea from above = MARVELLOUS !! i wish i could have taken more pics but my digicam would not allow me too due to circumstances..(but i guarantee those pics are permanently locked our hearts)

after parasailing, went bac to the beach n tanned

itwas reli fun n i love manukan so much so much..(hoping to go back to the islands around manukan such as pulau sapi...)

we left at 5pm...something not so hapy happen wen we were to go back but its alright now n our bond grew stronger !!......come to think back of what happen was reli funny !!

4th day in Sabah, 22nd March 07

we woke up early today bcoz kaeseng's dad is goin to bring us to National Park and after tat we will be goin to Poring's Hot Spring..kaeseng came to pick us up at 7am for breakfast n we had "kon lou mee" for breakfast..the taste of the noodles was good, i like it,their "kon lou mee" was a bit different from us..

after breakfast, we went bac to kaeseng's place to meet up wif his dad to start our journey to National Park,located at Kundasang,it will take about 1 and a half hour to reach there..me,estee n yien are so excited in the car..and we reach this place name "Nabalu"..his dad stop by there to let us take some clearer view of Mt. KK and for us to buy some handmade souvenirs..n tat was whr we got a necklace for Mel..(hope she likes it)..

Nabalu is jus a stopover for us to take pics bcoz kaeseng's dad say when we reach National Park we wouldn't be able to see the mountain clearly becoz it would be covered up by the mist and it took us another half an hour before we reach National Park..the weather thr was so cooling compare to KK city..we jus love the weather there..

and this is the biggest "fake" rafflesia available in national park..after that we went to this hanging bridge..(damn i was bloordy scared wen i was crossing the bridge)..

and after tat went to "pondok timpohon"..the starting point to climb Mt.KK

later on we went to Poring's Hot Spring...me, estee n yien had never been to a hot spring, we were pretty excited on how was it goin to be..and wen we arrive there it was pretty cute to see ppl soaking in tubs of hot water.....

at first the hot water was filling up real slow den kaeseng found this tube to connect from the other tap...me,estee n yien share a tub n kaeseng n his dad share a tub..we were having fun in it.....it was such a great time tat all of us had...i jus love my holiday in Sabah..

will be bac with beach pics on manukan.......stay tune !!
