The Waterfront at Kota Kinabalu

The Harbour

Well, here I am back in Kota Kinabalu. I really like it here. The people are nice, it is a good relaxed vibe. And there is a harbour. I seem to be drawn to the ocean. Late this afternoon I went for a walk towards the fish markets, where they were setting up for the fish fry – ikan bakar.

Just past the fish markets was a night market where you could buy all sorts of meals for dinner. I chose Mi Bakso Ayam, a javanese favourite. I always think of Bogor when I eat it.

They also had murtabak and all sorts of sweets, pisang goreng, kurripups, dan lain-lain. After my feed I went for a walk along the promenade, then bought some pineapple for dessert.

And for an added bonus, this is a photo of me at Tawau. The kids begged me to take their photo so I could not refuse. I was taking photos of the Black-crowned Night Herons and everyone was gawking at me, wondering what the crazy white man was doing.
