Street accessories... I imagine it will be interesting to just sit at a cafe and see what people are carrying on them. That's a project for another day.

Inspired by CSI Miami colours.

The colours on CSI Miami series are incredible. Their camera white balance must be broken. 😀

Handicrafts stalls at Nabalu town.

handicrafts at pekan nabalu
A mix of locally made and commercially made handicraft items. Prices here seem to be cheaper than those found in Kota Kinabalu. As usual at bazaars like this one, bargaining will save you some money. I smiled when I overhead a young boy say to a tourist: “RM35 for 3 but for you sir, I give you special price RM25” … lucky guy. 😀 (US$1 = RM3.185)

Deck hands at work on a fishing boat berthed at the Fisheries wharf, Kota Kinabalu.

..12 midnight at the Fisheries wharf. Wholesale buyers were around, making their selection of fish. By 6 a.m., the fish market next door is already crowded.

hand written parking tickets, no meters. Sabah, Kota Kinabalu.

Parking attendant on the street issuing parking fees tickets.

If you are new in Sabah, don’t look for parking meters on the streets! We have people writing the tickets. And if it rains, plastic jackets are used to keep the tickets dry. 😀
