2nd Day at Kota Kinabalu

6 06 2007

Today is the second day at Sabah. I went to the Filipino Market by the Sutera Harbour shuttle bus. Mama and me bought some pearls for me, Mama, Wan and mama’s friend. I bought pencil holders for my friends.

After that, Aunty Noon and Uncle Lemboot lent us their red Estima Toyota. The reasons are because they want to encourage us to go to the other places in Sabah and the other reason is because they are not here this Thursday.


Later in the day, we went swimming. We ordered a banana split and some fries. There was a mini restaurant at the edge of the pool. I love playing near the chairs there.

Then, we went to yesterday’s restaurant to eat dinner. I ate softshell crabs, Chinese fried rice and deep fried squids. Mama and Papa ate the softshell crabs, deep fried squids, mangrove crabs and geoduck shell. It was a delicious dinner.

Sabah, here I come!

I came here to Sabah yesterday. I came here by a MAS aircraft, B737. The flight was actually to Labuan first, then Kota Kinabalu. The flight was at 0855 and it landed at 1235.

It was a very fun flight. The cabin crew gave us breakfast which was a choice between nasi lemak, roti canai or noodles with chicken. Mama and I chose roti canai but Papa asked for nasi lemak. We enjoyed our food very much. We are lucky because flying MAS, food is served and our seats are protected!

After that, we slept a little and when I woke up, it was giving an announcement to put on our seatbelts and get ready for landing. After waiting in the aircraft for 45 minutes, the plane was ready to take off and 20 minutes later, we were off the plane and already in Kota Kinabalu International Airport. Papa was breathless because the aircon was not on. Uncle Charles was waiting at the door to send us to our hotel.


Our hotel is called Sutera Harbour. We are staying at the Sutera Harbour Resort, The Magellan Sutera Harbour, the east side of Sutera Harbour. The west side is the Pacific Sutera Harbour, the city hotel. In the middle is the Sutera Harbour club. There are 2 pools here at the Magellan, 2 pools at the club and 2 pools at the Pacific But we can also swim at the club because it is connected to the Magellan. I don’t know whether the Pacific have access to the club pools or not. We are staying in a room where the 4 pools are on either side of us. Behind the block are the club pools.

Last night, we went to have dinner at a restaurant. Papa’s friend, Uncle Lemboot brought  us there. It was called Happy Garden restaurant. we can choose our food.

I ordered Chinese fried rice but Papa, Mama, Uncle Lemboot and Aunty Noon ordered prawns, softshell crabs, grouper fish, rock crab and siput tarik.

It was a very fun day…
