Sabah: The land below the wind

No comments

Had the privilege to stay in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah for 2 months. November – December 2015. We were sent there for Mission work but our working visa didn’t get through so we need to leave. We are grateful we had the chance to live there though. 

We rented a house near the UMS University of Malaysia Sabah. Huge Condo called 1Borneo. It was very convenient because below the condo is a mall with Giant grocery and Starbucks and everything you need. So in this house Summer celebrated her first Christmas and we are fortunate to have my mom Agnes to be with us and help specially me adjusting being a new mom and a new missionary. 

We enjoyed a lot of sunset in Tanjung Aru beach. Just 10 minutes away drive from city.

A local photographer saw us and decided to snap few photos for us and sent to our email:)

We went to Sapi and Mamuntik island to snorkel.

 Highlights would be of course the Kinabalu mountain though I didn’t have chance to climb it as I have 2 months only baby with me.


Dairy farm in kundasang. 3 hour drive with winding road from Kota Kinabalu city.

The drive is so scenic that I can literally just stop anywhere and take photo of this majestically mountain. Provided you came up early say leave KK at 7am. Later than that the possibility of you seeing a cloudy my KK is high.


My lovely family. With my mom, and summer just turned 4 months old:)

In Dairy farm, bought fresh milk and fresh milk pudding from the farm.


Fresh vegetables from Kundasang.



We went inside my Kinabalu park and go to their botanical garden. It is really small but it’s a nice refreshing walk. The air is so fresh I literally can breath better after the 20 minutes trail.





Me and my family we went here 3 times in the span of two months and we can’t help but to still be in awe with its beauty.
