roadtrip : sandakan

salam semua...
how was your weekend? it was a long weekend for sabahans as it is holidays here for the harvest festival  or  also called tadau kaamatan... so we have the monday and tuesday for holidays... kadazan's songs can be heard everywhere in sabah : at the mall, at the radio and anywhere... then, there is sugandoi (singing) and unduk ngadau (beauty pageant) copetition for the kadazan people... while the kadazans were busy with their celebration, i went to sandakan... my cousin is getting married this september... so this long weekend, we delivered his hantaran to the bride-to-be house... thats why i was in sandakan...

sandakan is actually my mother hometown... it is a 5-hours drive from kota kinabalu... just like from kangar to kuala lumpur... but it is totally different thing... well, you see, to go to sandakan, we dont have highways with 3 or 4 lanes like in peninsular malaysia... its only a one lane road along the way...  one lane for each direction... i guess this is because it is hard to construct road on the hilly side as the road to sandakan is hilly and the kinabalu park where the famous mount kinabalu situated  is also along the way... well, i would say the road is kind of bersimpang siur... maybe just like the road to cameron highland i  guess but i'm not sure as i never been there... orang cakapla...

everytime i went to sandakan, we must stop by kundasang to buy fresh vegetables... well the temperature is low  there where it is suitable to plant vegetables and fruits.. so here, you can find fresh vegetables and fruits... and the best thing of all, the air is cool and fresh there i think it is about 17-18 degree... it was refreshing as lately in kota kinabalu it is very hot... i cant stand it... so here it is...

beli sayur with my mom....

i was actually promoting the fresh mushroom in the plastic... buy some to  be eat at home... sedap dimasak bersama sayur... :)

you can even saw the mount kinabalu  from here...

strawberry pun ada... bought some... :)


snek and keropok tempatan pun ada... kuih cincin, amplang...
fresh flowers here!

roses pun ada untuk orang tersayang... :P

just look at the blooming flower...

more fresh fruits available here... :)

last stop before heading to sandakan, sabah tea... eat and have a drink here... :)
that's all for now... its getting late... nanti saya sambung lagi... thanks for reading this... till then, take care... :)
