      Really lovely staff, very helpful. Free breakfast (toast and tea and coffee) until 10am but you can help yourself and we were able to have hot drinks all day. The staff were helpful when booking a climb up Mount Kinabalu, and always smiling. A wonderful balcony that views into the forest with views of butterflies and sometimes monkeys. A lovely little chill out spot.
      Only minus is the walls are thin and the floors, so people who are noisy are a pain but there are plenty of signs asking guests to be considerate!

      ... late afternoon so I took shelter under a cafe umbrella and treated myself to a beer as I watched the glorious sunset over the sea. I hadn't had a beer since Vietnam because it was impossible to get one in Java, very Muslim. When the bill arrived I nearly died....£3! It was a bit of a shock after paying 10p in Vietnam! Guess I was just going to stay tea total! The storm took hold and I raced to the bus stop but the last bus was at 5pm so had to take a taxi ...

      Borneo 10K run

      What is a good Xmas present? John Lewis vouchers? No, 10K run in SE Asia... I was dreading the run. Before Xmas I didn't run at all and spent a few months being very unhealthy travelling around. Not mentioning that I've gained 10kg during that time, so running in 30 degrees heat and almost 100% humidity in the tropics was scaring me. But frankly that was a really good incentive to be more healthy. I've been ...

      Best of Borneo trip - Sabah

      ... quite magical. The next day was a bit painful as we spend most of it travelling - about hours on the bus. But we were totally rewarded by the lovely monkey spotting boat trip - we saw long tailed macaque, silver leaf macaque, proboscis monkey - they were all over the trees, jumping around, climbing the tree trunks and then after a nice dinner and after the sunset we went for another boat trip and suddenly we saw flashing lights all over the trees. ...

      ... so we stood there bored just following the crowd of doctors. We eventually escaped at 11 and headed to the canteen for an early lunch where I had a roti, some friend chicken noodles and a drink...all for £1.50. We could have gone back to the ward but went back to the hotel instead, deciding we didn't want to waste more time just stood there bored. In the afternoon we headed to the beach and spent a few hours there relaxing. For some reason the tide was miles out so I took ...
