Sinalau barkas. BBQ wild boar.

Posted in Around Kota Kinabalu by 1davidstella on November 23, 2015

BBQ wild boar. We call it “sinalau barkas”.

There are a few stalls serving sinalau barkas long the mountain road to Mount Kinabalu. We seeked out this one at Kg Kelawat (Kelawat village) which serves wild boar burgers. Unfortunately, the burger guy wasn’t around. We had the BBQ ribs and sides instead. At RM20 per kg, it was an affordable and delicious meal.

every sunset is different

Sunset at Tanjung Aru Beach

A sunset is best shared with someone.

Tanjung Aru Beach is hugely popular among tourists as well as locals. It is especially congested on weekends. Not quite the place to go for a dip, but there are many eateries and a bar or two. A great place to watch the sun go down the horizon.

if you can hear my heart.. say something..

sarong dress.. what colour hair should she wear?
I have seen many travellers wearing these sarong dresses in the hot weather here. We are currently in a hot and rainy spell,  glaring sun, humid as well. (33C – 24C, feels like 43C). Are you ready for summer?

The 13th Malaysian general election must be held by 27 June 2013 at the very latest. That is the latest date for polling.

Sabah, where I now live, together with Sarawak, Singapore and The Federation of Malaya, FORMED Malaysia on 16th September, 1963. Depending on who you speak to, lots have gone right, and lots have gone wrong.

In the last four years, a political tsunami has swept across Malaysia, from the West, to the East. It is an awakening never seen before, especially in the last four years, especially in the East (Borneo).

In this new age of the internet the information and media control by the government have been breached. This has allowed otherwise hidden information about the excesses, corruption and denial of justice to be freely available.
