Low Dough VacationWednesday, July 10, 2013
I was in Kota Kinabalu last week [from October 4 to 8]. Thank God, I managed to grab the low cost ticket promotion from Air Asia - the cost for my return ticket was just RM78. [Big Thanks to my Lil' Sis.. hehe]
I will be attending two interviews on the same day and later in the afternoon, I'll be going down to Stadium Likas for a football match between Sarawak FA and Sabah FA (last game for Malaysia Premier League. Sarawak is already champion!! Yayyy~!!!)
Actually, I miss Kota Kinabalu very much because in 2010 I went there with my family for a holiday. I never go on real holiday with my family before, so of course it's a sweet memories for me.
This time, I'm alone. With a very minimal budget but a lot of pictures .. hahaha...
I'm too exhausted to stay up and my cousin (Tim) is too busy with her love life so we called it a night at 2am.
|Believe me when i say this Blackberry is actually an extended part of her body... LOL|

Early in the morning, Tim sent me to a budget hotel located in the heart of the city of Kota Kinabalu (a.k.a. KK) as she need to go to work.
Big day for me too as I'll be attending two interviews [ separate jobs], first will be at 9am and later at 11am. I've choosen to stay at Rainforest Lodge after surfing in the internet for good budget room. Rate for the rooms, I think it's cheap and reasonable and as I can not afford to have my own room, I choose the dorm room types. It's only cost me RM30 per night.
|The look of the Lodge from other side of the road|
|The entrance door to check in|
|Three double decker beds in a room. You can only pick one!|
|My view for the next two night.|
|This area is for smoking or watch tv or gathering or even to eat (you cant eat in the dorm room.)|
|You can watch or enjoy band performance at night.|
|Night market or Sunday Market just few steps away! So cool!!|
|From room to lobby area|

|This area use to be Sugar Bun outlet but now it's serve as a place for breakfast or to hang out.|
Both interviews goes well.. [I hope.. *fingers cross* hahaha...] Having a late lunch around 2pm at Sugar Bun cafe first before getting ready to go to Stadium Likas for Sarawak Fa vs Sabah Fa later at 4.45pm.
|This outlet is so close to my heart... *LOL* This is the only one in Kota Kinabalu but a lots in Kuching but yet, very seldom patronize the outlet. Huhu|
|Sarawak Flag. Oh yeah, I'm getting ready for Stadium Likas.|
|Touchdown after 10 minutes journey from lodge. Using taxi and RM20 poorer. #DemiSarawak #WeFallWeRise|
|The ticketing told me this is the clearest to see Sarawak player but he didnt tell me its the farthest and secured. *LOL*|
|Very beautiful stadium indeed.|
|below the roofed area stadium lays few stalls.|
|There are |
After few minutes feeling not satisfied because of the distant, i came down and told the management staff i want to move to Sarawak team area and they are all friendly enough to ushered me.
|Just after raining...|
|Changing room for Sarawak team and I was here...|
|Congratulations to Sarawak Fa team... Unbeaten record for this 2012/2013 premier league season thus giving them the opportunity to advance to the Super League next year..|
|Sarawak Fa player give fans big applause..|
Anyways, after that Tim picked me up and bring me out for dinner. We're having pizza and some other more at Pizza Hut Suria Sabah.
Once done, it's a bedtime. Too tired and my limping foot are d*mn too sore!

Saturday...! Meeting with some childhood friends - i'm so lucky, my lunch and tea time bills are all covered! *Thank you - you know who you are!*
Back in my room around 4pm and getting ready to cruise around the city... Actually more like strolling around the town, with my oh-so-limping foot.
I didnt take much photos as i'm afraid of snatchers.. *the downfalls when walking alone.. huhu*
Even with my limping foot - i managed to make my way to Burger King.. *i'm a burger enthusiast and burgers from Burger King are very rare items in my list. Actually because there's No BK outlet in Kuching. Huhu...*
After that, make my move to Suria Sabah not because of shopping spree - i'm broke remember... but for these...
