2 Ramadhan 1434 Hijri – Long Drive

My first long drive on this holy month, though it’s only 2 hours drive to Kuala Penyu, but still it’s a total of 4 hours drive. On official business of course. Wonder why I didn’t bring along my iPod.

As if it’s our custom, roads leading to residential; namely Putatan in my case, and certain part of KK will definitely be jammed, from Ramadhan Bazaar, where everyone, every religion, came to get a taste of something that you wont normally find on any other months of the year. Or we’re lazy to find it on any other days because it’s lay scattered all over KK and only on this specific month where you can find it in just one concentrated place. A fact that most Sabahans knew. But I didn’t go near any of the Bazaar.

Instead, I went to Suria Sabah to pick up my wife and had our sungkai at Choice Restauran next to Kinabalu Daya Hotel because she crave for Roti Kosong kasih garing punya. But instead she had cheese naan. I had my usual murtabak, but this time with mutton, and a mango juice. Sugar is the key to get your energy back. By the way, I only had rice and sausages for sahur. Migraine attack? Nope. Coffee count? 1 mug and 1 canned Nescafe.


There’s some glitch in posting via iOS device so for the time being, will be doing my post from my computer.

p/s: Though some would ask why I don’t use the word ‘iftar’ but i prefer ‘sungkai’ for it’s more Sabahan specific word.


The Geek

A so called geek who resides at North Borneo, in a not so little city anymore, formerly known as Api-Api to the locals, Jesselton to the colonialist. This geek is a Civil Engineer by profession, who have lots of ideas popping up while traveling, who will write whatever popped up in his mind and hopping the reader would not be so judgmental toward his writings. This geek is also a computer & internet junkie who love outdoor, which is pretty much contradicting to each other doesn’t it? This geek is good at almost everything but a master of none (read about this somewhere). People may perceive him as a very quiet, describe as phlegmatic person, yet he is quite a chatterbox to those whom he is really close or comfortable with. This geek thinks anime chicks are way cooler than a real chick hence why he also likes to watch it (not the chicks, but the anime). Not to be mistaken as watching a cartoon, anime to this geek and to most of anime follower are animation that are created and produce by the Japanese.
