.. landed at Sandakan. I never got the chance to visit Sandakan earlier in my days. Where I have gone to? Timbuktu.

Itinerary: Day 1: River Cruising at Sukau Day 2: Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary Day 3: Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre, Sandakan Crocodile Farm, Agnes Keith House, St Michaels and All Angels Church Day 4: Pih Jih Shih Buddha Temple and Sim-Sim Seafood Restaurant

It has been raining cats and dogs during my visit. I hate rain. I don't like to get wet. I should have brought my umbrella. hahah and actually I have reminded myself to put into my backpack eventually I forgotten. Visiting to Sepilok forced me to buy raincoat as per advised by the officer over there. Luckily I did. I had fun. Getting to drive around town , which add the fun to it. You get to set your own pace. There are so many bandars! And each of their roundabouts has its own theme, like proboscis monkey, sepilok, crocodile. That is making sense. Look at our town, does it making sense? That, I will…


14th December: Its a tradition. Christmas Dinner! Well, its down to 2 of us. Everyone has its own way of doing things. This year we had a special place to celebrate, Mosaic Restaurant @ Hyatt. It's recommended by Edith Julius, one of the managers at Hyatt. A cosy little restaurant. From the look of it, the restaurant cannot fit more than 50 people at a time. We tried Hot Stone dishes. Sounds great, huh wait till you tried it, it's pretty cool.

We tried Hot Stone Mix meal, it has chicken, lamb and salmon. It's something different from other restaurant where you get to cook your own dinner on the spot. You will hear sizzle, and incredible aroma of the meal cooking right in front of you. The stone is heated on the stove and taken to your table where you can cook for up to 30 minutes. The price for this mix meal is abt rm45++.
