Sorry for the lack of blogs in the last few days. Have spent most of my time in the hospital, or in the gym! Today however, we decided to get out and explore a bit more of the area. Sabah state is famous for it's Orang-utans. It has two sanctuaries, one deep near the eastern coast, which has rehabilitated 38 monkeys so far, while the other, a much smaller reserve, is a newer sister company, founded as part of the Shangri-la Rasa Ria resort.

Tonight we were going to watch Sabah FA (the local football team) play at the Likas stadium so needed to grab some dinner relatively early so headed to a pasta place on Gaya street. I had spaghetti bolognese which was so nice to have after nearly a month without pasta. Harold had kindly agreed to give us a ...
