Tips dan Diari Perjalanan KK-Kundasang: Day 3

I wake up early just to take glimpse of the whole view of Mont Kinabalu. Why you should stay overnight at Kundasang? This why..the view. And believe me, one day is not enough. You must stay overnight here. At least one night. I would suggest you start your journey from KK early in the morning. When you arrive in Kundasang, go and visit Dairy Farm. Then, check-in at your selected accommodation. The next day, go to Poring Hot Spring. Not only visiting Taman Kinabalu & Dairy Farm are a must, you should also consider visiting Ranau.. because just a few kilos from Ranau.. Poring Hotspring is a very nice place to ‘chill out’ literally. Oh! and hot dip too. If Sabah Tea is also on your list..you have to visit it early in the morning… or you will miss the spectacular view of Mt. Kinabalu summit.

ish! geram beno teman dgn tmpt ni.. kalaulah ada rumah kt sini..

Check-out pagi2 sebab nak bertolak ke Sabah Tea Garden pulak. Tapi biasalah.. melancong bawak budak2.. slow… lambat le sikit. Anyway, thank you Dizz Homestay ..mmg terbaek..memang recommended.

Today’s missions… heading for Sabah Tea Garden & Poring Hot Spring. It will take almost an hour journey. On the way, we’ll stop at Ranau town for refueling at the nearest Petronas stations. Kena queue boh.. banyak jugak kenderaan pagi-pagi nih.

Journey to Sabah Tea Garden take about 50mins

Selepas menempuh laluan berliku.. bila nak naik ke Sabah Tea tu..jalan tak berturap.. dalam berapa kilo tak ingat. Bila sampai kat situ .. eh! apa yg istimewanya? Dah le view summit Kinabalu tak nampak. Ate.. udah kul 10 pagi. Blur jap apa nak buat. Bergambo jelah.. last skali masuk ke kantin situ..takde apa nak dimakan..kenyang lagi. Masuk le kedai souvernir… Kontrol2.. duit bajet tak seberape. Teman beli kotak teh kayu yg comel je. Ada lagi isi Sabah Tea dalam tu.. tak guna2 sampai sekarang.

Aisay..lewat sangat sampai. Tak nampak summit.

dsc_0488

Apa akiviti disini? Nampak le brader tengah bawak pokok teh untuk ditanam

dsc_0499

Tertutup abis.. wrong timing

dsc_0500

Background tu café..ada kedai souvernir jgk

Tak minum pun kat sini. Beli le souvernir Teh dlm kotak kayu..cantik

Rasa macam tak berbaloi je gi sini. Tak ada aktiviti..takde tour guide. Kalau masa anda terhad, abaikan Sabah Tea. OK next.. Poring Hot Spring. 30 minutes from Sabah Tea.

Looking forward for this

Looking forward for this.. especially my children

dsc_0508

Adoii.. bestnya tempat ni. Check the map

Kalau aku tau bestnya tempat ni… Poring Hot Spring aku tuju dulu. Nyosal den.

dsc_0512

Entrance fee. Don’t forget to pay. Bukan free yea. Murah je…

Because it’s under Kinabalu Park..so, there a conservation fee (murah je..). My children are super excited to try the Slide Pool (me too..hihi) but we came on the wrong day. Alamak! Closed every Monday.

dsc_0514

Kalau larat berjalan jauh (xdelah jauh sangat) silakan..

dsc_0517

The water looks really cool… cold actually..

dsc_0518

Ahh..love the walkway…

dsc_0524

Don’t worry ..just follow the directions. You won’t get lost.

dsc_0525

This is not the hot spring…this is the cold one..

dsc_0528

Sojuk pon sojuklah… banzaiii…

dsc_0529

Aisay..tutup la plak.

Itulah pentingnya untuk mendapatkan maklumat sebanyak mungkin tentang tempat yg kita nak lawati tu. Slider bertingkat-tingkat. Frust anak2 aku. Sorrylah nak. Remember people.. don’t come here on Monday. Anyway, there’s still the cool pool and the hot pool for you to enjoy.

dsc_0530

Bla..bla..bla.. ujung bwh sekali.. Isnin “TUTUP”

dsc_0531

Nengok je ler…

dsc_0533

Rock Pool..freakin cold

dsc_0534

Ahh…hot spring.. freakin hot..hihi

Apa bawah bumbung2 tu? Ah… tempat mandi air panas.. boleh campur air sejuk. Tengok setakat mana hangpa boleh tahan panas. Rupanya macam tub mandi.. lebih kurang la. Korang boleh google camne rupanya. Aku lupa nak ambik gambo. Segan nk ambik gambo sebenor2nye..sb semua tempat dah ada org. Karang ada yg kena pelangkong dgn baldi plak.

dsc_0545

This is the main building. Just after the entrance gate.

This is the information centre. Everything about Poring Hot Spring.

dsc_0550

Wah! this is just outside Poring’s entrance gate

Ada deretan kedai diluar pintu masuk Poring Hot Spring…terutama kedai2 yg berkaitan dgn peralatan mandi lah..apa lagi. Bersusun-susun pelampung budak.

dsc_0551

Mana kedai makan nih…dah tengahari ni. Panas giler beb bila tengahari kat sini.

Dah selesai berkubang… time to move. Before that, time to eat… lunch time. Not many gerai selling food. Okay we found one. Looks like a Muslim eating place…but unlucky for us we have chosen the wrong eating place. The service was slow.. and I don’t know what kind of meal that they cook for us. Rasanya..failed.  My advice.. if you don’t feels like eating here..don’t force yourself. Just drive yourself to Kundasang or you can stop at Ranau town. Banyak lagi kedai2 halal.. sebab Ranau & Kundasang ni majoritinya Islam.

Before going back to KK..we take a stop at Kundasang town.. Kot ada sayur2 nk dibawak balik ke KK. Eh! Tapi plannya nak dinner kt Hj. Manja… uiii..special tuh…

Looking for Kundasang's

Around 40 minutes to reach Kundasang

dsc_0554

Comel je rumah2 ni..colourful

Comelkan chalet ni.. colourful. Chalet ni tepi jalan.. mengadap gerai2 pekan Kundasang.. mengadap jugak Mt. Kinabalu. Sorry..takde maklumat contact number chalet ni. Google lah sendiri yea.

dsc_0555

Tudia…banyak sayur2 segarkan..

dsc_0557

Disana sayur…disini sayur

 

dsc_0560

OK..cukuplah tu. Beli le buah..kerepek2 untuk ngunyap2 dalam kete balik nanti. Macam sayang je nak tinggalkan tempat ni. Best sangat. Entah bila dapat gi sini lagi. I love Kundasang.

dsc_0571

bye Kundasang..

dsc_0572

tak tau ler bila nk kemari lg…

Tak puas hati shopping hari tu, singgah sekali lagi kat pekan ni..Pekan Nabalu here we go again.. Kali ni baru betul2 shopping.

Shopping!!!

Shopping!!!

dsc_0582

Byk jgk pilihan kt sini…rambang mata

dsc_0583

dsc_0584

dsc_0586

Aku beli gong kat sini.. sori xde gambonya..rege RM55

 

dsc_0587

t-shirt kalau nk beli kt sini..ok. tp kt KK lg murah kot

dsc_0597

dsc_0591

Shopping udah..moh degraih. Dah pukul 3.15pm ni. Ini kabus makin tebal ni. Kalau hujan pulan otw to KK.. bertambah haru. My advice, kalau nak turun dari Kundasang ni.. jangan lewat2 sangat. Petang sini berkabus.. jalan berliku pulak tu. Kita org luar yg tak biasa jalan sini.. eloklah turun awal skit. Org kata lepas kul 3pm banyak kabus. Dah le jalan menurun.. fikir2kan yea.

Nearly dark…awok asar pun belum lagi. Sejam lebih nak sampai KK ni. Sepanjang jalan susah nak jumpa surau/masjid. Selepas pekan Nabalu td sampai dekat Tamparuli.. gereja sesaje. Penghujungnye.. asar prayer at Petronas station (not far from Rumah Terbalik). It turn out we are not the only people stopping to pray. The prayer room was quite small. Queue lagi.. kecemasan dah..nak masuk maghrib pun.

Next mission..finding the best place for dinner

Next mission..finding the best place for dinner

Misi seterusnya… Gerai Santai Haji Manja, Dataran Todak, KK. Recommended by my boss. Dia dah berapa kali dtg KK ni sebab monitor site projek kat KK ni. I tell you.. you must come here. Memang sedap. Hujan renyai jugak malam tu. Ku redah juga mencari Gerai Hj. Manja. Tak susah cari.. Senang je.. tak jauh dari statue Ikan Todak kt tepi laut tu.

Gerai Hj Manja tu tak jauh dari statue ni.. dolphin ye.. ku ingatkan todak..

 

dsc_0605

Kami try Ketam Masak Kamyong, Ketam Masak Sambal, Butter Prawn Basah, Siakap, Kailan Ikan Masin.. Huiih! Ketam Masak Kamyong…memang terbaekkklah.. Butter prawn pun sedappp… aku yg tak berapa gemor udang pun terus jatuh cinta. Total semua termasuk air RM117. Memang berbaloi baloi..

dsc_0608

Ketam & Siakap 3 rasa kot..hihi
