My Land Below The Wind..

Hello all!

Today is such a good day to start a blog. Good weather outside, but my office is freakin' cold right now. It feels like a chiller in here. Its good to have a nice warm coffee right here
So as the first article for my new blog, I would love to tell you about my hometown.

I live in Kota Kinabalu city in Sabah. Sabah is Malaysia's 2nd largest state and located in the north Borneo. Sabah is very popular with its exotic islands such as the Manukan Island, Tiga Island, Sulug Island, Gaya Island, Mamutik Island, Sapi Island, Mabul Island, Sipadan Island, and more. There are a lot of small islands scattered around Sabah. Some are not inhabited. These islands are popular for its diving destinations. Labuan is also known as the duty free shopping spot!

Sabah also own one of the oldest virgin forest in the National Park Ranau. There are rare birds, wild floras and faunas, and most popular of all, the rafflesia.
We also have many world reknown golf & country clubs.
We also have many beautiful beaches.

Foods are also one of the main attractive here. We have foods of Chinese, Malay, Javanese, Western, Europeans,Indians and many more. No matter what style of the food is being cooked, no one should ever missed out Sabahans fresh seafoods. Apart from that, everyone should try the local ethnics delicacies. One most popular ethnics dish in Sabah is the sago palm grub - butod.. It is not only delicious, it is also high in protein!

Everyone who come to Sabah would certain love to climb the pride of the Sabahan which is the Mount Kinabalu. It is believed to be the heaven or the resting place of the dead. It is located at the Ranau district.

For the extreme sport lovers, I would recommend Padas River for a wild water rafting as well as a week long jungle trekking in the Crocker range.

Eco-tourism is widely promoted in Sabah lately. This is to encourage the whole world to experience the real nature and to install knowledge the importance of protecting & preserving the nature for the prevention of global warming.

I once heard a phrase -
Sabah is like a huge theme park
. I agree with it and it is very true. People who came to Sabah would confirm it as well. Come to Sabah once, and I would guarantee you would want to come again.
