I left BSB with no little relief, both for my wallet and for the feeling that the crimes of my liver were not being duly punished, the latter being something I dealt with as soon as I arrived in KK. Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Sabah, is a beachside backpacker Mecca, servicing divers, trekkers and general alcoholics with equal enthusiasm, and with typical Malay friendliness.
I met up with Marco again, as well as two Tunisian-German twins I had met in Brunei.They introduced me to Jethro, an itinerant Pom (there are a few of them around). Since Marco was busy planning his trek up Mount Kinabalu, and I had decided that I had seen my share of mountains on this trip, I joined Atef, Bessma and Jethro draining the bars dry at night and exploring one of the nearby small islands by day.
There was karaoke involved too, but there always seems to be somehow. I'll spare you.
Leaving was painful, not just because it involved getting out of bed after 3 days of constant intoxication, but I had to say farewell to Marco, who was set to become an intrepid mountaineer. I had to consol myself with the fact that I was leaving KK with the twins, and that I didn't have to share them with anyone else.
