First Out of the Country Experience

Indeed, my first out of the country experience was really memorable. Last January 28-31, I was  out of the Philippine territories with Nimmy and some friends. Off we went to Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, Malaysia. As I researched this foreign place, I can't help but feel fascinated with their beaches and some attractions. Really enticing. 

To start off, this trip was booked several months ago but we really did not plan our itineraries. I just did some notes in my planner and packed our clothes as if we're just going home to Bulacan/Caloocan. 

I want to feel comfy as possible during travel so I decided to just wear shorts, sneakers and shirt in the airport.


Majority of our activity consisted of beach bumming, island hopping, shopping, eating and snorkeling. 


I really did not know what this sign say, but when I translated it in Google translator, it says something like, "Take care of your park..."


Sunday market was fun although tiring. 


Chinese food is the best! Something Malaysian though is Cili Padi - a special chili sauce with vinegar, ginger and sugar.  It's a common condiment there, but not a common appetizer. So yummy. 


Sapi island, where snorkeling includes the experience of being bitten by dark colored fishes. Very territorial fishes....

An hour before our departure, with an outfit inspired by Bruno Mars. Just kidding...


And because of unexpected circumstances, our flight got delayed for about 4 hours. See how affected we are. 


But seeing K Brosas in Kota Kinabalu International Airport and having a picture with her is the best moment to end my first out of the country trip. 


Happy Chinese New Year everyone!!!
