Day 1️⃣

Her Premium Flex with Air Asia flight has departed to Kota Kinabalu (KK) from Kuala Lumpur International airport (KLIA2) @ 5.30am

Guess what❓⁉️

SiennyLovesDrawing was nearly missed her flight for the 1️⃣st time ever, she was lucky 🍀 that she didn’t, so you all still get to read her stories here 😅😂🤣

Unsure & don’t know why she wrongly remembered the Boarding Gate for her flight. Actually she got an angel 😇 who he helped to take her photo – Kota Kinabalu wall at departure hall. He asked, which is your boarding gate❓⁉️ She confidently answered Gate K 🤦🏻‍♀️, if she bothered to recheck her boarding pass again, she would definitely saved her energy to run & rush to the other end for the correct boarding gate that early morning

She was thankful 🙏🏻 that she got on the flight 🛫 to KK, she felt blessed. So, moral of this story to you all, do recheck your boarding gate before you walk towards it to wait for your flight boarding, if missed a flight is definitely not good ya

It’s really feeling good while on board with flight ✈️ after 2️⃣++ years, enjoyed looking out the flight window to feel the warm sun 🔆 rays & seeing the dancing clouds ☁️ up close while enjoyed her favourite flight meal ~ Santan Nasi Lemak Pak Nasser

.

As an art lover herself, she got amazed with the beautiful wall murals 🎨🖌️ at KKIA painted by the Sabahan artists. Truly proud of all local art talents shown to the world the art & culture of the people in Sabah in different ways, forms & knowledge through art

Actually these art displays at airports are part of the National Art Gallery & Malaysia Airports Holding Berhad (MAHB) initiative ie.

Yes ✅, both domestic & foreign travellers whether now arriving & departing from international airports at KL, KK, Penang & Kuching will be greeted by a series of artworks created by local Malaysian artists. Malaysia 🇲🇾’s international airports are the next cultural hubs

Happily met & greet with Sabah Tourism Board team members, Ms DG & Ms Nana, as well as tour guide, Mr Tommy Soo & driver, Mr Peter of Borneo Excursions at KKIA. Then, departed together to Kudat on a road trip of approximately 3.5 hours

Hmm…Her hotel room not a very well maintained room, the water heater was not very hot, the ventilation fan not working well with not pleasant smells, also she spotted a baby cockroach in her wash room 🪳😳🤯

Then, she was really disappointed that the wifi was so weak & unable to connect in the room. Hope it improves better then

Enjoyed a big bowl of bitter gourd soup vermicelli with a mix of both fresh fish & fried fish slices as lunch @ 📍 Kwong Sup Ikan. Surprisingly that the name of the soup in Cantonese/Mandarin “江鱼仔”, it means anchovies, however none of the dishes related to it, perhaps the soup base 🤔

The fresh fish slice is tasty to enjoy with a sense of fresh sweetness, while she is not to enjoy the fried fish slice, she prefers more dried fried, as she doesn’t really like the taste of flour coated on the fish slice. Just her own tasting preference ya ☺️

The bitter gourd soup base is slightly plain to her taste buds & not bitter. She would have preferred a thicker bitter taste soup base. She has tried a sip of the tomatoes soup 🍅🍲 base from her travel mate’s bowl, it tastes better as compared to bitter gourd

When stepped in to its air conditioning dining area, you will be amazed with the 1️⃣st aquarium ♒🐟🐠🐡🐢🦀 concept murals by Oka.studios (IG: Oka.studious)

Kokol Hill

Special thanks to Sky Tee & Jane who dropped by for her to check in to NG Kokol Santai Cafe & Camp Site, hmm…Not very lucky as with bad weather, rain 🌧️☔ superb heavily

No sunset 🌄 …so sad ohh…

Instead of camping 🏕️ at the camp site, SiennyLovesDrawing was forced to camp in the cafe area as the rain just like down pouring heavily non stop ☹️

A cooling camp site stayed here, not very comfortable as the camp was rented without a proper comfy base. Hope it can be improved then as she has suggested to Aunty Silis. She told that she will order online the inflatable air bed, that’s great to hear 👍🏻

  2. I feel as if I traveled with you! So much information, it would have been so useful for me before traveling because I hardly can think up a question you didn’t write and answer to. The places look attractive for travelers such as myself as well

  4. Nampak macam menarik tempat2 untuk dilawati di KK. Sebetulnya kakak tak pernah sampai Sabah cuma Sarawak ajer. Maybe lepas ni kena plan ke Sabah sebab sana banyak tempat menarik untuk diteroka.
