kota kinabalu, my sweet escape (11 - 13 aug 2008)

right after duty, i took the flight to Kota Kinabalu with nelly and my sister. upon arrival in KK, we were met by my friends from Sabah Tourism, Ms. Tracelynn and Mr. Simon. They brought us to Nelayan, a restaurant that serves fresh seafoods and fishes. There are also cultural performances while we were eating highlighting Malaysian's folk dances.
