Around 0545hrs ,we reach Kuala Lurah custom…custome open at 0600hrs so tht we take chance to take another hot coffee in the car tht time we were Q number 10car(s)….after few mins later at our back a lots more car to come…luckily we all plan wokeup early & Q at Kuala Lurah custome early morning.After 0600hrs,custom gate open thn we start our journey after 40-50mins reach a small town call Limbang this small town belong to Sarawak.Then we stop by there like went to toilet & buy some breakfast & make hot coffee..after rest 30mins we start our journey again…..im still remember between Limbang & Temburong got a small ferry pay tht ferry fee cost B$4 or Rm$8/trip…..After 2.5hrs we reach Lawas there also got another ferry again ferry fee cost Rm$10/trip…all the way long it got very nice landscape view.When we reach Sipitang,Sabah…….1 of my collegue(Hj Saiful) his ankle pain so tht we got another stopped for body streaching.Hj saiful’s ankle pain bcoz of his height & drive a small car(Toyota Vios) so tht his feet position unfited for him…he should drive big car like Landcruser or Pajero.Sipitang got nice beach landscape view..aiya..i forgot photoshoot there…..after rest continue our journey after 3hrs driving……i mean total driving hours were 6hrs when we all reach Kota Kinabalu…i mean Sabah capital a big town…..my goodness…got very very very heavy traffic jam tht time….we traffic jam almost 2 hrs.Around 2pm we reach 1Borneo Mall…this is latest Shopping mall in Sabah.And we all overnite there tht hotel call Courtyard Hotel it four star hotel….After tht we all checkin tht hotel & rest & hav’in heavy meal there in 1Borneo Mall.Now below here i will attach some photos tht we all hav’in visit Sabah & hope u all like it….
