Day 1 @ Kota Kinabalu

Finally, i have some time on my hands and stremyx connection at home, that i can resume blogging (with pictures)... though stremyx itself had been pretty slow, these few days... but i'm certainly sure i won't use dial-up connection again... So, here's Day 1 and the other days which i missed.... so the story is kinda like patchy.... filling up the jigsaw puzzle.. do excuse me for that...

So, i took the afternoon flight to Kota Kinabalu. When we arrived there, it was already time for dinner.

I was welcomed by May Luu's (Mogujing's) uncle family. I met Aunty Sa Kim, Ah Gong, Zhu Zhu and Mira, the servant. They were all very nice people, especially Aunty Sa Kim... She was so soft-spoken and welcoming... i am so glad...

Hospital Queen Elizabeth (HQE)
yeay! MoguJing drove us around...
forgot to take picture of the 4-wheel drive...
very keng one o~

During dinner, we met up with Bobo, Alice (Bobo's sis) and Susan... We had dinner at Hilltop Restaurant. It was an open-air-mamak stall like- steak house... not the usual steak house we usual see will air-con, music and all... so, i was quite surprise when they showed us the menu...
looked like a coffee shop

reasonable price

i had peppermint lamb chop. I thought it was quite nice. The others had mixed grill and honey lamb chop, which i thought was just okay... perhaps not good enough... borderline, hardly...
the servings were HUGE,... i had trouble finishing mine... and mixed grill was like double my portion... crazy... i wonder whether any of their customers ever finish their food... the price, very reasonable... but i rather they improve on quality, and service...

the peppermint lamb chop i had
quite big portion, got 3 slices leh!
a close-up

the honey lamb chop honey had

the mixed grill MoguJing had...
got lamb, beef, chicken, hotdog... only for RM23!

all the portion seriously HUGE man..
non of us got to finish our share...

Oh yes, i'll like to recommend a very nice dessert stall to you: Yoyo!
The pearl bubble tea there is superb!!! i never had a cup of nice pearl tea since the one i had in Shi Men Ting, Taiwan. I think the pearl tea in KK can challenge that, even. The other pearl tea i have had around peninsular were hopeless.... any recommendations from peninsular?
anyway, back to Yoyo... you MUST MUST MUST try the chocolate pearl milktea and Yam flavoured pearl milktea!! A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!!!!
The awesome YoYo!! yippie!

even the tissue box is cute~

my favourite chocolate bubble pearl tea~ yuhoo~~

yam pearl tea?

the many assorted flavour pearl tea~

(shaved ice dessert)

many-many-many-many-many huge tasty red beans inside...

of love

Today, i heard a story which was not a story of falling...
of living in the dark end of winter turmoil..
instead, it was a love story..
of a couple who did not live happily ever after...
but they live, loving each other..
