Monday, 1st Feb 2016. My 2nd friend from Couchsurfing Community visiting my city.
His name is Petar Manasyt Tassev from Bulgaria but currently living in Xiamen China. He teaches English Language in one univeristy there. And married to a local.
I’m not the one hosting him. He’s staying with some other good samaritan lady in KK – at Marina Court Apt.
We meet-up around 1PM at Starbuck Warisan Square.
Here he come.
Because it was already lunch time, I propose that we go for lunch first before stating our KK City Tour. Thinking of taking him to my cousin’s restaurant at Api-Api (Aieza Cafe) but cannot find any available parking. As usual, no parking during prime hour!
Finally i took him to Restaurant Padang Ibu at Jesselton Point. I wanted to show him the jetty in case he wanted to go to the Island. Around 15 minutes boat away from the jetty.
Let’s eat bro!
No spicy food please !
The ITI for the City Tour today was:
- Driving along Likas Bay
- Yayasan Sabah | Menara Tun Mustapha
- State Assembly
- University Malaysia Sabah -UMS and its Marine Aqarium + UMS Mosque
- City Mosque at Likas
- Signal Hill Viewing Point
As we drove along Sulaman Road, we stopped for durians.
Ahaaaa.. Petar loves durians! The king of fruits.
Afterwards ~ proceed to University Malaysia Sabah (UMS)
First stop was The UMS Marine Akuakultur
Entrance Fee :RM10
The Reggata Lepa Boat
Petar wanted to have a look inside but closed for visitor’s for Asr Prayer Time
Then we proceed to KK City Mosque located in Kampung Likas
I’m taking picture of people taking pictures
The weather was too hot and humid. Decided to chill a bit with cold coconut milk.
After visiting KK City Mosque, drive back to KK town via Signal Hill to stops for awhile at Signal Hill Viewing Point.
Along Tanjung Lipat ~ By 4 – 5PM started to jammed
Signal Hill Viewing Point
From up here,you can observe and took bird-eye-view picture of the city.
Because Pet was too tired from last night long travelling period (Xiamen – Hong Kong – Kinabalu), i send him back to Marina Court afterwards.
Well Pet. It had been a great pleasure meeting you. Sharing stories and experiance as independent traveller really inspiring. And the laugh was genuine!
Till then. Hope to see you again somehow, somewhere!
But even if our path never cross again, the memories lingers.
Meet Petar again the next day/night (2/2/2016) for drink, as he will be leaving the next day at 5PM to Miri, Sarawak.
