Round 2 to Kota Kinabalu - Part 1.

It has been two years since I first stepped foot onto Kota Kinabalu. The first time I went with Nelson, Yvonne, and her family. This time, I was fortunate enough to go with Farid and Tricia as he had a gig to do at the Sabah Trade Centre for the IPEX 2007 and Ideal Home Exhibition.

Left KL on Wednesday evening and after the 2 and a half hours of AirAsia time, we landed at the new airport. First thing on our schedule was to pay tribute to the very best fish head curry in Kota Kinabalu. One that I've heard a lot about from Roger and Claudina, Mia, her Superman, and her father. So a not-to-be-missed stop on this trip, that's for sure!

Timing was really good, by the time we got there... most of the KKians have already had their dinner so the place was quite empty. Nice spacious place and real clean too. :) A plus point most definitely.

The deal here is you'll have the banana leaf rice with all-you-can-eat rice and vegetables. All still slightly hot/warm so it's real nice. Then you also have all-you-can-drink teh tarik and ice cold water.

With that, you can order your fish head curry or just plain fried chicken, which by the way is real delicious too. But look at this fish head, mouth-watering! All in all, the meal only cost RM 49 for 4 person. What a great deal! And this is by far, the best fish head curry I've ever had. If anybody wants to prove me wrong by bringing me for the best fish head curry, I'm more than happy to be proven wrong. Just remember to bring me with you. Haha. :D

The next morning after a full-on curry attack on our stomachs, we headed to the aiport area for some good malay mee soto at Sri Dewi's.

I'm not a big fan of mee soto but the soup is really yummy. Worth just coming here for the soup. :)

The rest of the second day was spent at the Sabah Trade Centre with Farid, Roger, and the rest of the boys rehearsing for the night's performance. I'm happy that I finally got to meet Hanafie Imam perform. He's a fantastic musician, great tone on the double bass. We had to change hotels the next day and it was definitely a trade-up. :D

We were staying at the Promenade Hotel Apartments first and then we got to move to the new Radius International, boutique hotel. Well, they call it the Boutech Hotel... because they combined the words, boutique and technology, go figure.

But I must say, the place is really nice. Clean, great facilities. Only one floor space with 96 rooms. Best of all, we got the seaview rooms. Great view of the islands. Every evening a breath-taking view of the sunset. ;)

Comfortable beds. I stuck them together so I can roll around as much as I want. Haha. :P

Best of all, they have a plasma TV in the room and 24/7 broadband connection. At last, internet! Was disconnected for 2 whole days, can you imagine? ;)
