I've been to several places before be it within Malaysia or some other countries but Sabah was the most beautiful place to visit. I was wondering the reason people especially the westerners kept visiting Sabah and later I'd treasured this beautiful place on my own. The view was tremendously breathtaking besides the calming of sea view awaits the people who love to embrace the nature of Borneo. I would like to start the journey on the first day right after we landed on 'land below the wind'. Have you heard this phrase before? Sabah is known as 'Sabah Negeri di Bawah Bayu'. Beautiful name indeed.
We went to Philippine's market once we checked in the hotel and had our lunch near to the hotel. We had sightseeing along the waterfront where people selling fresh seafood and local stuff. Some of the seafood not familiar to me and might not found in Peninsular. Plus, I'd the chance to witness the giant tuna where it can only be found in deep sea. When I said it's giant, it's a huge one and I really meant it. The lobsters on the other hand were selling side by side and being a food lover I'd direct imagination of the lovely taste once we bake them with cheese. Oh my!
How I wish to have all of these back in Peninsular with lower price~
The first night was blissfully spent in Tanjung Aru where you can stroll along the beach. Nothing much as it's similar to Danga Bay in JB. This is where Tanjung Aru Perdana Park was situated where the visitors could enjoy the music fountain. We'd dinner somewhere in town near the 'Todak' statute. It's quite familiar for visitors and the local too for those who wanna try variety of seafood cook upon request. I was not able to snap the photos of what we eat that night as each of us were freaking hungry and impatient to try them out!!
Last but not least, we'd performed our jama' prayer before went back to the hotel to sum up our first day in Kota Kinabalu. The mosque known as Masjid Sembulan which is one of the Masjid Besar in Sabah besides the floating mosque known as Masjid Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu. (will update later)
