Ever since moving here to this Land Below The Wind, Sabah, I have never took a step into the Sabah State Railway main station at Tanjung Aru, Kota Kinabalu.
Not that i’m not aware of such railway system when its main station is so visible in front of the main highway to the Kota Kinabalu International Airport but I just couldn’t bother to care about it because most of the major townships connected by this railway can be easily accessible by the trunk road and whenever there’s need to visit these townships, I would just drive there.

Celebrating one of our brother’s birthday the other day, we went to Chef Tan’s cafe for our dinner and celebration. This cafe was located at The Peak Vista (map below).
As the name suggests, this cafe was opened by a person called Mr Tan. HAHA! “Duh…..” Some writing on the wall was telling the story of Chef Tan, whom was a very passionate person in culinary. Retiring after serving 25 years as as Executive Chef at Shangri-La Tanjung Aru Resort, Kota Kinabalu, a quite reputable 5 stars hotel in the city, he decided to open his own cafe in July 2013.
