Kota Kinabalu Trip 2009 - Part 2

Day 4
27 December 2009 (Sunday)

The morning started with me picking up Sheau Yen from her home. We planned to go to Gaya Street. As I left my camera inside the car, I had to rely on her camera for pictures. So no Gaya Street pictures until she sends them to me!

Fast forward to afternoon, when it was time for me to check-in to Tune Hotel @ One Borneo, where I would be staying for the rest of my trip.

Later that afternoon, Sheau Yen and I were joined by Momok and Elyssa. Oh boy... it was such a wonderful afternoon of catching up. I hadn't seen Elyssa for the longest time!

Here're some pictures taken inside One Borneo.

Day 5
28 December (Monday)

That day, I had Ngau Chap (beef noodle) for lunch. Typically, I forgot to take pictures of the food. Oh well. After lunch, I went to meet up with another group of old friends at Old Station Kopitiam @ Damai. Another great round of catching-up ensued!

That night, Tiffany's mother treated me to dinner at a seafood restaurant. After dinner, Tiffany and I figured we would like to see what KK Times Square was like. So I drove both of us there and we were utterly disappointed with what we saw. It was like a dead town, except for the pub FireFly, which was still quite vacant because it was early. So we headed to Pasar Malam (night market) where we had a lot more fun looking at things.

Day 6
29 December 2009 (Tuesday)

I had Char Nyuk Mien for lunch. The only food picture I managed to remember to take is this:

After lunch, I went to City Mall to meet up with another long-lost friend - Hsiao Hsien, together with Momok.

That night, I met up with some Tshung Tsin Pre-U friends at Coffee Bean Damai for drinks. It was THE place my friends and I often patronise back then. It didn't change much but the drink I ordered (Ice Blended Pure Chocolate) was awfully sweet. Even with my sweet tooth, I could not take it. And it was rather empty throughout the night. Maybe because it was a weeknight. Oh well.
