I have started running since 2013, after sustaining knee injuries that prevented me from playing football in 2012. I have been running more than a thousand kilometers – on roads and trails – from the shortest distance with my kids of 3km to running a climbathon 23km up and down Mount Kinabalu with the elite … Read moreHelp me raise fund for MERCY Malaysia Sabah Chapter – medical and dental missions

Yes. You heard me right. The developer gave us “development for Kota Kinabalu” as excuses. Somehow or rather, they managed to get through local government authority to build a shopping mall cum hotel just nearby our one and only structure in Kota Kinabalu which survived World War II. I am talking about Atkinson Clock Tower, … Read moreHelp us save our 105 years old heritage!
What say you? It has been quite an issue during the past few weeks. Politicians and businessman talking about it.

We went back to Kudat last weekend for holiday. I had the opportunity to go to Kota Marudu Tamu (Sundays open market here in Sabah) for a test of my new Nikon D40 that I bought from lelong.com.my last month. It’s actually my Sunday mornings ritual every time I went back to Kudat – a … Read moreShooting sharks at Tamu Kota Marudu
I was shock when I found out that they are planning to manipulate Mabul, the same (or maybe worse) as Kinabalu. One of my friends in Facebook invited me to join another cause that could hopefully spread the awareness on how human greed can destroy the future of Sabah. Although I am not Sabahan myself, … Read moreAfter Kinabalu, Mabul will soon be lost…
I received at least 3 emails asking about the weather on Kinabalu each week. I think I better write this post and lead the inquirer about the issue here.
