【沙巴游】 亚庇 : 城市观光 Fun in Sabah : Kota Kinabalu - City Tour

The journey continued after the breakfast.

As Sabahan, we should know some basic tourist spots when our friends all over the world seek for our opinions and answers.

We have mountain for us to CONQUER, we have sea for us to dive with the marine fishes. We have places which took within minutes to reach. ;)

Signal Hill, Kinabalu Park, Poring Hot Spring, Australian street, Gaya Street etc... But we only manage to visit a few places on our THP's city touring.

We went to Puh Toh Tze (Temple) again for our praying and it means that it was the end of Chinese New Year 2010. And we need to wait until the next year (2011) to see all these auspicious lion dances, family/ relatives gathering and other events too.

The temple was crowded with people, not only us but also tourists all over the world on that day. They were lucky to be there, enjoying the day which not all of the tourists might saw. =)

Yayasan Sabah /Menara Tun Mustapha (F.K.A. Sabah Foundation building). One of the oldest building and the tallest in Sabah, with 32 floor and the view up there was amazing at night.

I did went to Atmosphere - The revolving restaurant and bar with some friends at night (two weeks ago), which is the "spinning restaurant" on the 18th floor, and in the 1980's or 1960's, it was called the 32nd floor restaurant. The environment was relaxing, and I will post it in future entries. So... stay tune!

The third destination -- 1 Borneo, the largest shopping mall in town for a walk. My mom love to go to Daiso for Japanese goods, which cost RM5.00 for all the goods sold.

We did went to our State Mosque for a short photograph session, didn't manage to went in there for a visit. My dad told me that tourists are required to wear a gown if we visit inside the building.

We manage to go to the above few destinations only. TIME CONSTRAIN!! We need to rush for our annual lunch at Promenade Hotel for buffet.

The food served was interesting, and weird for some... However, overall it was okay. and I love the chicken soup!! Took few bowls for that!

My mom had few of the Prawn Cocktail. She like it though.

Can't wait for the next holiday and going places as usual.

p/s: Singapore, I'm coming to you real soon!
