Jalan2 Kota Kinabalu Part 4


Our last day was a leisure day. We purposely planned to drive around Kota Kinabalu while emptying the fuel in the rented car.

We checked out from the hotel at about 10 a.m. We drove to Karumbunai Resort just to see the once famous resort but now seems deserted. What a pity, such a beautiful area but poor maintenance. The long grass at roadside is a sore to the eyes.
We then drove back to the city to a visit at Jamilah' Jewelery. A place that I came across while browsing the internet during the drive. Several items caught my attention there....yesss.....a gift for myself.

Next is the quest to satisfy our hunger pang. Again... we rely on Mr Waze,  Google search and blogs. This is what we called knowledge is just a tap away. There are many good suggestions but many are outbound. Therefore Mr Hubby suggested a restaurant that he once visited long time ago. Alhamdulillah....

The fuel indicator reminded us that we do not have many kilometer left. We decided that Tanjung Aru beach will be our last stop. Futhermore, it is already near to the airport. We went there for the spectacular view of the sunset. For some reason that is unknown to me, I really enjoy watching the sunset. To witness the sun descending from the sky. Moment by moment Subhanallah.

We finally reached the airport at almost 7pm. Hand over the car keys to the owner. Its not a complete trip to KK if you did not buy the frozen fresh seafood. We grabbed ours at the store in the airport. Properly wrapped for in flight transfer.

The flight was scheduled to take off at 9.35pm.  However, almost like answering to our hopes, it took off 10 minutes earlier once all the passengers were on board.
Alhamdulillah, we safely arrive home at 1.00a.m in the morning.

By the way, we parked our car at the Putrajaya LRT station. They have a very large parking space. There's the covered parking area and uncovered parking area. For a long parking peroid, I would recommend you make an extra round to find a parking space in the covered parking area. It is obvious that many travelers parked their car there. You can see many carrying large suitcases and luggage from the parking to the LRT station underneath to go to the airport. It's cheaper as compared to parking at the KLIA itself. And its cheaper if compared to taking a cab too. For an approximately 3-days parked, we were charged around plus-minus RM34. We were once charged RM100++ for a one way taxi fee from Shah Alam to KLIA. LRT cost us RM24 for a return trip, that makes a RM48 + RM34 = RM82. We save few bucks there. Need to be mindful that post-mid night taxi fare is higher than the day.  

Alhamdulillah... thank you Allah for this wonderful experience.
