Food around Kota Kinabalu

time to keep my promise
introducing delicious food (at least I agree that) around Kota Kinabalu

morning you can go to beginning of Gaya Street, there's a restaurant selling Laksa
very delicious laksa, is curry laksa not asam laksa
2 different thing
go and have a try
and it is not so expensive
they serve drinks too such as, Teh Madras, lemon ham kit (salted prune with lemon) and some others

Yee Fung Restaurant's famous Laksa (curry laksa)
beside laksa their Ngau Chap also famous
Ngau Chap is beef noodle, give it a try too

Yee Fung Restaurant's Ngau Chap (beef noodle)
well, if you prefer rice
they do serve rice as well
Claypot Chicken Rice
too bad we didnt order that because we hunger for noodles 
but I tasted it, not bad too but i prefer the laksa more
their famous noodles

if you are so lucky visit the street on Sunday which is Gaya Street
then you have the opportunity to take a look those stuff there
a lot of things can be found there
from foods to drinks, coffee beans, snacks like amplang, kuih cincin,
clothes, hat, sunglasses, and even pet
yes..they selling birds, puppies, rabbits, cats and everything

and here I found a special snack
mango glutinous rice ball
traditional maybe peanut and sugar, or maybe red bean paste
but this is creative enough they put mango
different taste from the traditional style
worth a try
Mango Lo Mai Chi (Mango Glutinous Riceball)
other than food from the local Sabah 
you can find Sarawak's famous Layer cake too
kek lapis which quite expensive because of the beautiful and unique layer done by them

lot flavor and lot pattern
nice nice..the price will be more expensive if the pattern, the design more complicated

Sarawak famous layer cake (kek lapis)

you will no regret visit Gaya Street because a lot of special, pretty, unique things can be seen there
then we move on to Damai

for me Damai is a chinese area where there got a lot of food
chinese food, a paradise for chinese haha
and this Eggie Ball is so famous at KK town last time 
unfortunately, because of some not so good circumstance, now left Damai 1 outlet only
oh, it call Tea Presso
it is inside a comic shop
next to it is a shop selling clothes

Tea Presso's Cheese Eggie Ball
I love the cheese flavor eggie ball so much!!
others i tried but not so tempting but the cheese definitely a YES

the price might change..currently only 1 shop located at Damai
after eggie ball and some drinks from Tea Presso
move to next street find Uncle Biscuit bakery..
the bread and cake very delicious

my all time favorite golden pillow bread (turkey&cheese) big big less than rm4 only
followed by durian pancake
it was more delicious, now not that delicious but still worth a try

Uncle Biscuit's durian pancake

since we had reached Damai
now move on to Hilltop
just after a traffic light and a junction, not far

HIlltop have this super super delicious fish meehon and also lime juice
both of this are my favorite

MIxed Fish Meehon without milk

undeniable this restaurant selling those delicious food at a higher price for me
but I think it is worth because the food very delicious
no matter fish meehon soup with milk or without but I prefer without milk because more sour when compare
and of course the fried wantan and also fuchuk
my all time favorite

Front left,  mixed meehon without milk; front right,  fried wanton; back., mixed fish meehon with milk

price (might change) and types of noodles serving there
next go to Tuaran for Kelapa Bakar 
a special aroma special taste after the coconut burnt
a different taste of it
why the coconut is dark? because it got burned haha
beside coconut, they have this Lukan (clam)
the sauce is the secret recipe

Lukan, a seafood, clams categories
this is the stall I always visit
Sudi Mampir
along the street you can see a lot of stall but I like this because the sauce for Lukan is delicious
their coconut pudding also delicious and original compare others

Sudi Mampir, the stall I favor most
alright, whole morning whole day go here and there hunting for food
and now dinner time
of course seafood!!

there's a chinese restaurant Welcome Seafood located at Asia City
not expensive, affordable and the food delicious

The only vege found in Sabah, 'shu zai'

Dry Butter Prawn

Sweet and sour pork

Kam Heong Crab (dried chilies) rm18/kg only

I've visit that restaurant many times and their food still so delicious
can try the claypot beancurd too

alright those are recommended must go places haha
now time for some food that can be found somewhere else but worth a try here too 

1 Borneo, Brooklyn
it was called New York New York but now they had changed to Brooklyn
recently I found their menu had changed too

they have this super Giant BIG burger
1 person definitely cant finish
if you think u can finish it then accept the challenge finish it within the time given and eat it for FREE!

Lamb something..at Brooklyn

next pit stop at Upperstar
you can see a lot of Upperstar branches around Kota Kinabalu
so no worries just enter any of it and order it
just their design might slightly bit different


Peppermint sauce lamb chop always in top list

Baked Mushroom Soup (with puff on top of mushroom soup)

Kota Kinabalu, 3 Days 2 Nights

this is my first time as a 3days 2nights tour guide..
my friend came all the way from KL and visit me here at Kota Kinabalu 
I'm not very good at this but at least I can give low cost, cheap and affordable tour tips
especially for students because we are students

Kota Kinabalu for sure have to go island
so we went to 2 islands, Pulau Manukan and Pulau Sapi
go to Jesselton Point which is located at the city, and there got lot agency try to pull you and give u so many information about activities and islands over there
so no need to worry, you will be directed
Pulau Manukan not recommended, try Pulau Sapi or Pulau Mamutik

Pulau Manukan beautiful place

There's chalet too..can check out the price and information..just google

you will fall in love deeply

you can prepare and bring your own food over too
if you didnt prepare dont worry, each island selling food but not much choices

we chose to hop 2 islands in a day
we reached Jesselton Point at 9am then spend few hours at Pulau Manukan
then hop to Pulau Sapi at 12pm
you can choose to stay at 1 island but if you can choose 2 islands why not?

as usual, snorkeling, banana boat and lot activities there
life jacket, the mask cost rm10/each roughly that price
if you need one contact your agent =)

Pulau Sapi.. I prefer here more

tired tired day..sunburn is unavoidable haha
then we walked around at the city
opposite Suria Sabah which 10minutes walking distance from Jesselton Point have this amazing unwanted left building full of mural painting, well in the other word, vandalism haha

although I dont know this is vandalism or meant to be a tourism spot as well
but because of some people whose hand itchy, the beautiful spot became not pretty already
it used to be nice but because somebody spoil it by add more not artistic drawing so it became disaster 

nice place for an abandoned spot
if you ignore those unwanted sketches it actually very nice

dinner can go to restaurant near there
an old kinda dirty restaurant but serve delicious food
located at Ang's Hotel, opposite Wisma Merdeka
is a chinese restaurant
try it out..

first day ended because so tired..after a day island hopping
next day you can visit the chilling chilling place, Kundasang

we called a van, tour van who fetch us and it's not expensive though, rm500/van and can fit 10 people
he will fetch us 3 places, Kundasang, the park..Poring, the hot spring.. and Mesilau, the cow farm..

all the way to Kundasang we will pass by Pekan Nabalu
every tour bus will stop by here
there's a spot for you to take picture of the Mount Kinabalu
unfortunately, super cloudy and only see cloud

pretties and the cloud no mount Kinabalu

there got a lot of stalls..selling local food like tuhau, fruits..
they selling snacks as well.. amplang, kuih cincin..
of course beside food, souvenirs too.. keychain, t-shirt, hat

welcome to Pekan Nabalu, spot the left bottom picture, is a Gong, a traditional music instrument

alright after Pekan Nabalu, next stop is Kundasang Park
reached Timpohon View
this place for tourist to see the Mount Kinabalu Peak as well but because the cloud keep following wherever we go, so only can see cloud and no peak

Timpohon View..all of us, 10 in total

there have some office showing a lot information like the history, the largest flower Rafflesia's information and a lot more

alright, nothing much to do there since is cloudy so we go the next destination Poring, the hot spring
erm, I dont really fancy that hot spring because it seems not so hygiene although you can pay for a more personal place but I still dont feel like enjoying it, so we go to the canopy walk..

here a lot places to go if you dont feel like putting your leg into a same tub with others

you need to pay for the canopy walk and of course your camera need to pay too haha
not expensive only rm5/camera...
of course canopy walk we have to walk up high high then only can go on the bridge..
so all the way up is not that tough i can wear so pretty and walk it with sandals

it is worth to walk it
done with Poring here we go to Mesilau, the Desa Dairy Farm
this is the place I want to go so badly!! because it looks like New Zealand

here is where they produce Desa Dairy milk..
they actually have this session for people to visit and milk processing thingy, it open at 3pm
try to make it around at time to cow farm

i like the green grass..dont worry no cow poo poo

really like New Zealand rite??

and if not so cloudy you can see the peak 

done with green grass, mountain and skies now with rock

besides cow farm, there's War Memorial Park too..can pay a visit if want =)

all right..i'm done for 2 days trip here
these 2 days really tiring both day used up whole day
from Kota Kinabalu city to Kundasang took around 2 hours so it's not so far
if you decided to drive up yourself no problem is not that hard..just a way to go
but I dont like these bumpy up hill road haha so I will never drive up

next I'm going to share the food post haha
my blog often about food and this post no food at all because I'm saving it for next post
when my friends visit, we took a whole day just to eat out at KK
come back next time for food post haha..maybe few days later and all about food =)

9 days left

I am having final exam and this is my final semester, final year and finale of all exams 
I guess, at least I hope it is..
3 years ago I was complaining how boring is Sabah
how lifeless here in UMS
senior told me I will be missing this place and don't want to back KL
well, she told me when I was in my first year, and I so totally disagree because I know I wont miss this boring place
now, after 3 years spending most of my time here
me now, so totally AGREE with my senior
I am in love with this boring but beautiful place
I am in love with the lifeless but peaceful place 
Sabah I Love You
the peaceful I own here will never be the same when I back KL
I can never enjoy the view of sea with my fried rice
I am glad if I able to find a clean, nice river, not to mention sea

after a hectic week, 3 days nonstop exams
I have a little bit time to relax and enjoy while waiting for next week's papers
so I'm gonna pack my stuff but before that will update my blog
for sure because I realized my baby blog had been dead for long time
is time to revive my baby blog 

I miss my hair color, my burned skin, and of course the beautiful greenery view

I got plenty of post waiting me to blog
how I become a 3 days 2 nights tour guide for my friends and relatives
what delicious food and where we hang out

and also my TnC crew or known as TryAndSee crew that I adore so much
video that we made, outing that we went, food that we ate

my course's retreat which I bonded new friendship
my school's lousy appreciation dinner

well the lists here is more than enough already
just wait me for another day then I will blog part of it
