To Mount Kinabalu and back!

Pssst... On my way back to Kuching and blogging from Kinabalu airport, after being purposely deprived of Internet for days.

This is just a very short note to duly inform that on the 27th of June, 2012, at 7am, 5 minutes to sunrise, yours truly has reached the summit of Mount Kinabalu in one piece! Wohoooo!! Don't believe me? Well mister, I've got proof! I said I will DO IT... and I DID!

 Tada! Peace from -4 degree celcius!

And 4 days later, I still walk like an 80-year old woman with cracked facial skin, but it was ALL worth it baby!

I promise I will blog about it later when I get home to faster Internet and the comfort of home and extra tender loving care. In the meantime, if you're ever here in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah next time, don't forget to try their Mihun Tom Yam! It's allegedly the best in Borneo, although I would say that it's distinctively Sabahan's.

Mihun Tom Yam KK style... RM8 perbowl at Seng Hin Coffee Shop

Summit below temperature Adventure, cute porter, handsome guide, steep survival tips, tenom coffee, post climbing blues, i-hate-stairs, blissful seafood... DON'T GO AWAY!
