SABAH TRIP 2010 (DAY 1)

Date: 19 August 2010


I booked them from a package AIR ASIA GO with 5 days 4 night trip for only RM 660. Is truly a cheap and affordable package for me. So, the day had come. We went there through a big plane of Air Asia departed at 8.00 am. No delay from AirAsia and the place had been numbered.



Here is me and my flight. I am flying to Sabah. The comfortable journey had took us 2 and half hour landing to the KK 2nd Terminal Airport. The journey was simply comfortable and quick. Thanks to Air Asia.

Arriving there, we had my best friend to pick us up from the air port and renting a car for us to go around the town. We had a quick lunch in Luyang ar Kedai Kopi Yuen Fook which is famous among the UMS students. Here the places give a meal in afforable price and delicious one with the famous roti bakar as well. We also went to YoYo to have its famous Milky Tea, yummmy tea..

Then we had check in to our Hotel in Tune which is a low cost hotel but a 5 star for a check-in. Is simply good and nice hotel to stay but space wise is slightly small. Budgeted hotel.

We had our journey to the UMS, my school. We had a walk at the UMS Jetty and had our memorable pictures there as well

The state-of-the-art marine museum is yet another addition to the Universiti Malaysia Sabah campus.

Established in 1995, the Borneo Marine Research Institute (BMRI) is aimed to promote education, research and training in conservation and sustainable development of marine resources, and a rational deployment of biotechnology.

Situated within the Borneo Marine Research Institute (BMRI) Complex adjunction to the Sepanggar Bay area, this aquarium and marine museum boasts one of the best aquarium facilities on the Borneo Island.

Among its facilities are the free standing exhibition tanks, live open water reef exhibition centre, live shallow reef exhibition centre, mangrove walk, contemporary Marine and Maritime Museum, Multimedia Interactive Information Kiosk, and Sipadan deep dive diorama.



The UMS Aquarium and Marine Museum is open every day except on Wednesdays and public holidays. Visiting hours are from 9.30am – 12.30pm and 2.00pm – 4.30pm.We then headed to the nearby UMS Aquarium which is giving us the underground feel. The ticket is RM 5 per person and to have the enjoyable look of the mini Aquaria in KLCC. The project is by the Marine students of UMS


We then back to hotel for a rest and headed to Tuaran for a Seafood meal.Oh ya.. have you ever see this? The restaurant which is named Gayang. And the coconut pudding and lokam there. On our way there, Guan took us for the delighting local mystery food which is located nearby the seafood restaurant we are heading. Seafood time now ... and we had a lot.. Prawns, crabs and seashell with just less than RM 100 and makes us blotted with food.

The day ended... and is time to zzzz...
