The Un-expected Trip to Kundasang, Ranau, Borneo

It was an un-planned vacation but it was really great.

We went to Kota Kinabalu on 7th March to send my sister to her new high school, Sekolah Menengah Sains Kota Kinabalu (Kota Kinabalu Science High School) and she will be staying there for 2 years in the school’s hostel. She will be good there.

Without a plan, I MET NOORMAN THERE TOO! He was there with his family for some family business and he will staying there until next week and back to Kedah (we don’t know when will we see again..aww).

We drove 500km from Sandakan to Kota Kinabalu safely with our van with a lot of luggage! Three days two nights aren’t enough for me and Noorman to hang together (aww!!). We spent most of our times settling down my sister’s school matters, and dammit…we don’t know when will we see again..

But yea…it’s a great trip! Here's some of our pictures..Sorry for the low qualities. It's my Motorola W375 junk again (I planned to buy a new MotoKRZR K3 but geeze..I have no time at all!)

.: This is some of the most beautiful view that you can enjoy along your way to Kota Kinabalu City; Kundasang, The Crooker Range:.

.: Then, we stopped by at Kundasang Mosque to have a rest, pray and picnic lunch! :.

.: Drop by to buy some fresh flowers and vegetables :.

.: Puncak Borneo Resort, the place where we have an overnight :.

.: Cute cottage nearby the resort where we stayed :.

.: Beautiful view of Mt. Kinabalu and Crooker Range that you can see from the resort where we stayed! :.

.: Full view of Mt. Kinabalu that you can enjoy from the resort's restaurant :.

.: That's my dad checking up our van on the early morning in the resort, while we all enjoying the beautiful views :.

.: Borneo's strawberry, Kundasang; the only place where you can buy it, I think in Malaysia :.

.: Sneaking on the resort's security rest place! I found this nice place to lay down and enjoy the morning view :.

It's a wonderful place to visit and I'm planning to visit it again as a backpackers~
