3 + 3 Nation Tour

View all 13 photos...
It has been 5 weeks since I returned from a 2 weeks tour crossing two continents. I brought along 50gb of memory cards and right now I still have not finished editing the pix.

Anyway, here are some of the highlights of my tour.

Long time did not update my fotopages. August was Ramadan, September was Makan Month. Since the last week of September - 2nd week of October I was abroad so I have no time for fotopages. On the other hand it was the trigger happy period for me shooting away.

Be patient, I will post pix from a 7 nation tour.

Sabah-KotaKinabalu Walkabout2:Jesselton Pt.

View all 19 photos...
Just 12 days after my solo walkabout in KK, I did another walkabout also in KK. I started the walkabout at 6.15am, yes I repeat 6.15am. The sun rises at about 5.45 am in KK.

From Le Meridien I took a stroll along the coastal road towards Jesselton Point with my cam firmly in my backpack. I took extra precaution to ensure the safety of my 'baby'. Weather was a bit cloudy but I really hoped it would be brighter by 7am.

This was my first shot from the side of Suria Sabah Shopping mall, "The Jesselton Point", the jetty place to board boats to nearby islands as well as to Labuan :

FYI this is my second trip to KK in June ... 1st trip was for 6d/5n with my family. 6 days after my return to KL, I flew to KK again for 4d/3n courtesy of my employer. Even now if someone were to offer me a free holiday in M'sia, I would opt for Sabah.

I have lost count on the no. of times I hv been to Sabah, probably more than 30 times within the last 5 yrs.

View all 24 photos...
It is time for another family vacation, this time we are headed for KK & Kundasang... KK trip would not be complete w/o going to Kundasang.

Bought AA tickets (not zero fare)sometime last year at RM 150 ppax inclusive of taxes, luggage and food. Nowadays, even with zero fare it will cost us more than RM 150ppax.

The Philippines market & Jamie's Pearl Center is a must for my wife and kids. Thus I decided to go on a solo walkabout at KK Waterfront.

KK Waterfront is famous for its market - Philipines market, Dried fish market, Night market, Fruit market, Fish market etc.

So here at Sinsuran opp Dried Fish Market was where I started my solo walkabout.

For a full report and complete set of pix go to the forum where I have posted them :

"Macet" in Jakarta 2

We arrived in JKT on Thursday evening and left for KL on Sunday evening.
The firstl "macet" that we encountered was in the immigration hall itself. We were stuck for more than hour, the queue was not that long but what I observed was that the way they handled the crowd was abit disorganised. One Chinese guy who had queued just in front of me were questioned by the officer during his turn, why he had not queued. Poor guy, all the while he was queueing in front of me and suddenly the Indon officer (a lady actually) said he has jumped queue. For each visitor, it would take more than 5 mins. for the immigration to clear his passport.

Other than that ... on the road, we did not encounter serious "macet" as our timing was good, arriving in the evening when the traffic are actually going out of town and going back home on Sunday evening when most offices are closed.
