Mount Kinabalu Sabah Expedition

Location : Mount Kinabalu Sabah
GPS Coordinates : N6 02.734 E116 35.730

These photos I took using a film SLR and scan into digital photo. Resolution not as nice as current digital SLR. The journey to the peak of Mount Kinabalu took 3 days total and you must be physically and mentally prepare for it if you want to enjoy the beautiful sunrise at 4,095m.

View of the top at the foot of the mountain. Seem so far away.

Very rocky surface before reaching the summit.

I think this is Planet Mars on earth.

Land above the clouds.

Ropes available to assist climbers to reach the summit.

This was the view from the summit. Ya I make it.

Tony Roma's, one of my favourite western restaurant. I love the baby rib with lots of Tony's special sauces.

The smell of freshly toast bread when you walk by the shopreally blow your mind away and tempting for a bite.

The crowd did not seem to show anything ichiban about this sushi restaurant.

J.Co Donuts house, for those who have a sweet tooth.

Laksa shack, never tried before and don;t seem anything special about it.

Milky lane ice cream parlour.

After a bowl of pasta will drive you crazy, so think before you eat.

The fusion between Japanese and American. Yo Sushi...
