Kota Kinabalu 2011 Adventure

Sorry for not updating in quite a while. I was rather busy reading other people’s blog while keeping myself busy travelling as well. But that’s quite normal, right? If I don’t have anything interesting to tell or actually doing something even more interesting real-life, why bother the virtual ones. Hehehe...

Anyway, I’m now writing at room 7217 Nexus Resort & Spa Karambunai in Kota Kinabalu. We are supposed to be exploring the resort (well, that’s what I have in mind the moment I arrived at 1240 today) but Zukry is feeling under the weather after a whole driving up and down the hill of Sabah just to reach Kundasang, Ranau. Actually, he has a temperature you know... He’s now sleeping with a wet towel on his forehead which I later decorate with some rose petals hoping that he would soon be OK. By soon, I mean in maybe 30 mins or so. If not, well – I better be enjoying the rest of what this resort have alone; which will then be very non-honeymoon of us. Oh, yes we are on the Forever Bliss package. So everyone is treating us like newlyweds since we first arrived. Nice!

We got our fruit basket delivered; with complimentary of a cake which said “Happy Honeymoon!” complete with a matching card signed by a few Nexus Resort and Spa staffs. A housekeeper came by just to put on some roses around the room and greeted us with Happy Honeymoon just after we had our tapau Chicken Rice Shop’s Nasi Ayam. Great start so far! The room is a bit old fashion; even the TV is the not flat screen ones. But then again, we are here to enjoy each other and Karambunai itself. The beach is not that far away from our room, and the sea is just so blue...

Here are some photos to summarize what had happened this weekend in Kota Kinabalu, it is a Negeri di bawah bayu...


TeenyrkuZ at Kinabalu Park

Dearest driver of the day, posing his best in front of quite a few men waiting to be pictured at the same spot

Yours truly. There was a warning that an overweight isn't aloud to climb up. I guess 2011 is not yet the year for me. Huhuhu...

ZukryneeT enjoying some Sabah Tea at its plantation which was quite a disappointment. It was the weather and the Ginger Tea. Should have ordered the normal Teh-O.

What's the name of this flower? I know some chosen the bouquet for weddings, but here in Mesilau - they grow like bunga kertas je! :)

Cows ready to be milked. It was an interesting experience, but bau agak kurang menyenangkan. Overall place is satisfactory but the view... check out pictures below! Breathtaking. We spend some time here, just to enjoy the scenery and while waiting for 3 PM (Milking time), solat at a nice small surau provided.


Kabus over mountains. It was cool, takyah gi oversea lah! The road to Desa Dairy Farm is rather difficult. A 4WD should be the best transportation, but our rented (a friend's) Gen-2 survived

Cantik, kan? I think somewhere in there, SKO Iron Men team is climbing up to Kinabalu peak :)
