Four steps down.

Four steps down, and thirty paces to the beach.

Four steps down, and thirty paces to the beach.

Rustic, idyllic, harmonious. I was a guest in this home. One of about forty homes in the seaside village at the northern-most tip of Borneo. The winds are strong here. The people are friendly and hospitable, a characteristic you will find in most villages in Sabah. And, beyond these steps, the beach is just thirty paces away.

Loo Pun Hong (Carpenters’ Guild) premises on Love Lane.

An old heritage building that dates back to 1886. I didn’t know what it was until I searched the name. But it was interesting enough to catch my attention.

The way it used to be.

Hawker stall on tricycle cart in Georgetown, Penang.

Hawker stall on tricycle cart in Georgetown, Penang.

A hawker selling food on the backstreets. This is still a common sight in Penang. They are largely “extinct” in most other cities and urban towns in Malaysia where they operate in hawker centres and markets. Penang is considered a hawker food heaven among the Malaysian Chinese population and deservedly so.

The cendul is a favourite Malaysian dessert. The Famous Penang Road Teochew cendul shop is a family business with a history that dates back to 1936. A must-visit destination for travelers to Penang!

Old shophouse in George Town, Penang.

Old shophouse in George Town, Penang.

Not sure if this is a hardware shop or coffee shop. It looks like a popular happy hour joint for pigeons.

Too tired to walk.

A rickshaw ride around the inner city of George Town.

A rickshaw ride around the inner city of George Town.

George Town, the capital of Penang, is a city located on the north-east corner of Penang Island. The metropolitan area, with a combined population of more than 2.25 million, is the second largest in Malaysia. The inner city of George Town has a population of about 720,000 and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site recognised for its unique architectural and cultural townscape.

I have enjoyed exploring the city on foot. However, a rickshaw ride is a good alternative if your feet are tired.

Night shift.

125 KM more to Tawau town.

125 KM more to Tawau town.

125 KM to Tawau town, the last major one on this trunk road around the East Coast of Sabah.

Tawau is 540 KM (or 8 hours by road) from Kota Kinabalu on the West Coast. This was the 3rd leg of my excursion around Sabah, from Sandakan to Tawau (312 KM or 4.5 hours by road).

I much prefer the view from the comfort of a seat in the car. But the pillion rider had a much more exciting time on the back of the bike. Along the way, I enjoyed the visits to the various towns, sampled the food and sights, and relished the slices of life moments as they happened. Despite not having the motivation to bring along my camera, I have enjoyed taking photos with my cellphone.

Football night.
