LET’S HOPE 2008 WILL GIVE US THE BEST THAT WE WISH FOR
WE SINCERELY HOPE YOU HAVE MADE YOUR RESOLUTIONS
NOW TO KEEP AND MAKE THEM REALITIES
I have not been able to pen down a brief greeting wish to all friends and bloggers on the eve of the New Year as I was in the land below the wind.
Yes we were at Kota Kinabalu during the last days of December 2007 and joined friends and Sabahan to welcome 2008 last night.
Sabahan at least those at Kota Kinabalu welcomed 2008 in an
Mild Friendly Community Manner without the
boisterousness and noisy celebration of blasting car and other motor vehicles’ horns and revving motor cycle engines.
Families held barbeques and some people jump into the sea off
Tanjung Aru Beach to wash away ‘dirts’ or traces of last year’s bad luck if any
We wake up to see a bright beautiful day ushering us into the New Year, roads clean without the normal corrective measures to clear rubbish later in the day.
(sharing with you a few snap shots taken at KK)
Alive and Stirring Five Ikan Haruan Freshly Caught and Offered for Sale. These and other oddities will certainly catch your eyes as you tour the varied stalls and made-do counters.
A view of the city as it awakes early in the morning. This photo was taken from the hotel room at 5.30 a.m. Hardly any movement except two persons who were having their morning walk. The sun rises pretty early in Sabah and as such it gets dark much earlier too.
