    The best cheap option available

    With limited accommodation at the base of mount Kinabalu, D'Villa is your best cheap option. With up to 12 beds crammed into one small dorm room, it is defiantly a cozy night (which is needed in the cool high altitude).
    The hot showers have an immense amount of pressure, which is perfect on the cold mornings

    Astrid and I have spent the day hiking around Mount Kinabalu. The entrance of the national park is at an altitude of 1,563 m.

    Kinabalu Park, established as one of the first national parks of Malaysia
    in 1964, is Malaysia's first World Heritage Site designated by UNESCO in
    December 2000 for its "outstanding …

    ... that happens only about 25 times a year. And we saw 2 flowers each about 85cm across!!! They are parasitic and scientists still don't know how they pollinate etc etc. They supposedly stink, but can't say I noticed but we couldn't get too close as they are protected.

    Dinner had to be back at the seafood court! Remembered my camera this time. Scallops and white crab - but it wasn't crab! Don't ask!!!!

    ... and way too much of a handful for most to put up with, so give it up already. Its my most hated (and boring) line of questioning while travelling.

    Annoyingly I accidently drop my pepper spray on the floor as I left the car - dam! I really wanted it for this next place Im visiting. Now im going in defenceless!!! Not happy Jan! (but I have another one back in KL so I will just have to come up with interim risk-management strategies :))


    KK Pub Crawl

    ... for some noodles. On the way back we stopped in at the cheap restaurant for another Tiger and were approached by a Kiwi letting us know about a pub crawl departing from the WW2 cafe later at 7pm. I sifted through LP for a bit trying to find options that would bypass the Mountain and decided to spend a night at Lupa Masa, a highly recommended Eco Camp outside of Ranau near Poring Hot Springs [booked through the ever faithful Hostelworld]. After that we went down to the ...

    ... I took the local bus into Kuching the next morning from my hotel (20 mins) with my fingers crossed and what a difference! What a lovely place, fantastic! There were Chinese pagodas and temples everywhere, lovely old traditional Chinese buildings and the river front was fab. On the opposite bank was a massive gold roofed new Sarawak State Legislative Assembly building that dominated the waterway, it was beautiful! Little traditional boats were ...
