We wanted to just travel in Malaysia, maybe Cameron Highlands but my sister & I were too lazy to drive up and that we're not too sure if we're up for the winding road. Then, Mili suggested if we should fly out but too short notice, we couldn't find a good bargain for the flight tickets (in fact, i had only about a week to help plan things). We decided to check out Kundasang since none of us have ever been there (I myself never been to neither Sabah nor Sarawak). And so our belated birthday trip started off in Kota Kinabalu, a surprise treat for Abah.
|Jetty, about 15min walk from our hotel next to Padang merdeka.|
|Mount Kinabalu's reflection.|
|Stalking some cattle at Desa Cattle Dairy Farm.|
|The kids are alright.|
|That pumpkin looking thang is what they call avocado cheese.|
|View from Kinabalu Pine Resort's restaurant.|
|Mount Kinabalu from our resort.|
|I don't know the name but it sure looks like fairies, aye?|
|While driving up to Kundasang.|
About 30mins from Kundasang is the town Ranau (where you can find Maybank) and a bit further up from Ranau is the Poring Hot Spring, which we didn't go because I was already tired from driving and that the next day Mili wasn't feeling very well so we drove back to Kota Kinabalu. Before leaving Kundasang we did stop by Mount Kinabalu National Park however we were not up for hiking so we just drove around the accessible area. Would definitely come to Kundasang next time, gotta get a place with kitchen so we can cook up all those fresh vegetables yum! Heh. Anyway, we stayed at Kinabalu Pine Resort and I think it was a good bargain (because I just like staying at old buildings, my sister not so much), only they really need to upgrade the food a bit. We stayed at Block F, had a clear view of the mountain except that they just had to place the electric pole in the middle of that nice view. So I suggest for you guys to take Block R if you guys wanna stay there.
