There’s nothing to do in Kundasang anyway?

Prior to moving to Sabah two years ago, I had already climbed Mount Kinabalu (very doable and I highly recommend that you do it!) and visited Kundasang briefly during that trip. As such, I decided that there isn’t very much to do in Kundasang, except maybe get some fresh air and I flat out refused to…

Rest.Ice.Compress.Elevate – Gunung Wakid

I like to live dangerously or maybe I’m just a glutton for punishment, I’m not really sure myself. Either way, I definitely wanted to sit myself down and give myself a good talking to once the hike was over.

Worms and other good stuff … D’Place Kepayan Perdana

D’ Place Kepayan Perdana is a place I’ve wanted to try ever since I heard they serve authentic Kadazan-Dusun food. Ironically enough, despite being in Sabah for more than a year now, I haven’t really had proper traditional local food. The thing about this kind of meal is you tend to get very mixed reviews…

Bukit Kokol

Bukit Kokol (Kokol Hill) is give or take 40 minutes from KK City in Menggatal. It had rained all morning the day we decided to visit, so we only made our way up sometime after mid day. The roads are windy and some parts are a bit steep, so if you have a 4WD you’re good…

The hills are alive…

Bukit Botak or Bukit Gundul (Bald Hill as it’s known) in Sepanggar has been a place I’ve been dying to explore since I saw it on a list of hiking trails in Sabah to try and had my instagram flooded by multiple photos of other people conquering it. However, I’d asked around and was advised by…

Tamu Kota Belud & Cowboys of the East

Kota Belud is approximately an hour’s drive from KK city and is home to the “Cowboy’s of the East”. They have a “Tamu” (market) every Sunday, and once a year it’s held in a larger scale. Having a free day which collided with the event -it seemed like the logical thing to do.

Kudat – Roadtripping

I’ve always liked long drives. Something about spending all that time behind the wheel, with good music and if alone – nothing but my thoughts, that helps calm me down and sort of recharge some what. After itching about for a couple of weeks, I decided I needed to get out of KK for a…

Beach hunt – Ep 1

I love the beach. Something about the sound of crashing waves, the salty sticky sea air and the feeling of sand between your toes… there truly is nothing better. I’d choose a dip in the sea any day over a boring old pool. (When you are spoilt for choice, you get to be picky)
