KK Trip (Day 1)

This is what I should post long time ago, just that I don't have extra time to arrange all the photos taken during the trip. have to much assignments to do this semester, and there are four assignments which I need to submit this month. But there is some friends who said that my blog almost become legend because of not updating, so I take some time to update my blog with this post. This KK trip is booked by 7 of us since March and we went to this trip during our last semester holiday. The "siaw kia" who is going to this trip is me, Jeremy, Vincent and Lucas, the "siaw cabo" are Wenshi, Gabby and Jolyn. On the first day, we depart from Kuching at 1.45pm and reached KK before 4pm.

Once we reach there, the first thing we "siaw kia" do is look for duty free cigarettes. Unfortunately, our favaurite Dunhill King Size is out of stock, so 4 of us just decide to bought the Dunhill Fine Cut. After we get our luggage, the taxi we booked is already waited for us outside the terminal. When we are on the way to the lodge, we realise that our lodge is just located at the town area, and there's many places for us to go around that area.

When we reached the lodge, Vincent help us to check in because he is the one who booked it for us. The price for the room is quite cheap, we have booked two room and each of us just pay around RM170 for four nights. Each of the room got two beds and a washroom, besides that, there's also a recreation room which you can online, watch television, chit chatting and read books.

*The computer and internet access is free for you to play.

*There's lots of KK travel information on the notice board outside the lodge.

*And this is our 4 "siaw kia" room!!!

So, the first thing we do after we loaded all our luggage is planning what are we going to do for this trip. Actually me and Jeremy is going for mountain climbing the next day but we cancel it because Jeremy has break his ankle the week before this trip while we are playing the paint ball. We have wasted RM180 because we just can claim back RM150 from our deposit we cancel the booking.

*What should we do for this trip??

Photobucket
*Is this enough for me to spend for this trip?

After planned for 30 minutes, we come out with the decision that agreed by everyone and we called our mountain climbing tour guide to arrange it for us. Here's the list of what we going to do for this trip.
  • Day 1 - Shopping
  • Day 2 - Water Rafting
  • Day 3 - Visit to Kinabalu Park and the Poring Hot Spring
  • Day 4 - Island Trip
  • Day 5 - Home Sweet Home
Around 6pm after rest, we went to Centre Point at KK by 15 minutes walks from the lodge. At there, we bought something and waiting for our friend who works for his father at KK here during his holiday. We just hanging around there and we also went to Palm Square which located at the upper floor because this two shopping complex are in the same building.

After Ah Boo arrived, he bring us to Taman Tun Fuad Stephen for dinner. There's quite a lot of restaurants around there and the famous one is called the Fishermen's Restaurant because you can enjoy cultural dance performance while you haing your dinner. But we did'nt go that restaurant because some of us already ate some burgers at Burger King just now. So, we just went to one of the restaurant at there and ordered for some seafood.

After having or dinner, Ah Boo drive us around KK and introduced some places that we should go. Then he bring us to Bukit Bendera to enjoy the KK night view. I have to say thanks to him because he is the one who bring us around at KK during night time when we were at here. Without him, our trip wouldn't be so happening at night.

Our first night is not end yet, Ah Boo still bring us to the KK waterfront to have a walk and we found that the place was so happening although it's during weekdays. The place is full with pubs, lounges, karaok and restaurant along the waterfront.

Next, Ah Boo bring us to Upperstar that near our lodge for some drinks. At there, we ordered some beers and snacks. 2 big bottle of beers only cost us RM18. The price here is very reasonable and the environment was very comfortable too. There are some table that provided with computer and you can use it for free.
