On a rainy day, the former South China Sea and Gaya Island were part of a glittering silver landscape. Photographed from our Kota Kinabalu apartment hotel Marina Court with the late Bernard Khoo (blogger Zorro Unmasked) blowing smoke from his pipe, next to me. I told Bernard the landscape may soon become gold. Bernard passed away on 4th April 2014.
I am glad Jugjet Singh Randhawa remembered the name of the hotel the NPC entourage from KL stayed in while in Sabah. Finding a forgotten hotel is like reuniting with a long lost friend. Because of the big entourage, we were put up in an apartment/condo style hotel. It is near The Klagan @ Riverson featured earlier.
Members of the NPC National Press Club went to climb Mount Kinabalu on the trip we made. Members from Bernama, Malaysia Nanban Tamil daily and NST, among others, were up on the peak or summit here at 4,095.2 metres or 13,436 feet.
Fb friend Jugjet Singh Randhawa of NST had his turban 'photo bombing' Low's Peak in perfect alignment. :-) Another iconic geological formation, the Donkey's Ears Twin Peaks were destroyed in the 2015 earthquake.
Jugjet. can you or anyone remember the name of the hotel in KK we stayed?
Since we are looking at Sabah hotels, I dug up some pics from a trip to KK with the NPC or the National Press Club. Don't wear red life jackets or red safety helmets in case you encounter a charging water buffalo mid stream. The dangers are not just from hidden rocks and sudden drops. I shot this from the famous wobbly suspension rope bridge high above the Kiulu River.
