Kota Kinabalu Here I Come....

I flew to KK on a Sunday to work. It is my first time flying to KK. After living 24 years in Malaysia as a Malaysian, I am embarrassed to declare that this is my first ever time to any part of East Malaysia eventhough I have been to more than 10 cities in Europe! So this morning's trip to KK was rather exciting for me. As I reached the KK airport, I can't help but to notice that the airport has a beautiful view of the sea. The runway was just beside the sea!!!

I was also my first time prebooking a meal on board of Air Asia. A nasi lemak will cost about RM8 in flight but if you prebook it online, it's on RM7. See, RM1 saved!


This is what it looked like in the menu


This is what I was served...

Well, isn't it typical for food served not turning out like what you've seen in the menu?!! I even counted the peanuts and there's only 12 miserable peanuts in my nasi lemak!!! But Air Asia had a new menu where some of the food is specially available at certain routes like Indonesia and Thailand.

I'll be flying off to Labuan tomorrow on MAS (thank God) and I need to be at the airport by 6.20am (shit). At this moment, I'm blogging in my STANDARD ROOM at Radius Hotel KK with free internet access and a LCD TV at just RM175/night minus breakfast and a window view.

Well, time to catch some sleep after a full meal of soft shell crab, steamed red snapper, buttered prawns, vege, clams, "balitong-liked-clams", and fried giant fish at Ocean Seafood Restaurant. Good night.
