In April, we nipped over to the Malaysian city of Kota Kinabalu, on Borneo, for a long weekend at a modest resort. We had no plans other than relax and rest, and that’s pretty much what we did.
The resort was right on the water, with a coastal boardwalk, swimming pools, landscaping, and views of Mount Kinabalu — one of the tallest mountains in Borneo and Malaysia — looming off in the distance.
Here’s our silly little family, doing silly things.
As we said, we didn’t do a whole lot on this trip, although one night we did go downtown to check out the night market. Chock full of fruits, vegetables, meats (raw and cooked) and other goodies for sale. Where they had active grills, it was quite smokey, which made for some nice atmospheric effects.
KK is well known for having great sunsets, and it certainly lived up to the hype. We even saw the mythical green flash! Turns it it’s not mythical after all; it exists! (Didn’t catch it on film, however.)
Finally, some shots of our hero as we traveled.
