Hi KK!

Arrived at Kota Kinabalu early in the morning and welcomed by our warm "Angelababy", Ah Hui, who picked us up from airport and entertained us for the whole day. The 1st thg we did was of cos to have breakfast! Sang Nyuk Mee 生肉面 is one of Sabah's famous local dishes and it must not be missed. There are a couple of popular outlets in KK and Ah Hui took us to this Sinsuran Sang Nyuk Mee which was the usual place for her family.
This was George's order which of Sang Nyuk Mee Kosong (RM3), accompanied with a bowl of soup consisting of all those porky ingredients (RM5). Deliciously good.

So this was mine, which was the soup version, but I had all the ingredients mixed together (RM6.50). Ultra thin slices of pork meat! Yumms~

After a really appetizing breakfast, Ah Hui took the trouble to drive all the way to Shangri-la Rasa Ria Resort to enjoy the stunningly beautiful beach. 

Did not adjust my camera to the right mode, so all the photos taken were kinda overexposed. 

When we were on our way to the resort, we spotted 2 stretches of stalls selling coconuts including panggang, jelly, fresh juice and also Loham. So, we stopped by during our way back, curious of what the panggang coconut would taste like.

Loham of different sizes

Coconut jelly! So good!

Coconut panggang which turned out to be kinda "siap siap" and slightly sourish in taste. Did not like it.

Loham. Very nice!

As we did not know what to do next, we went on our food hunt journey! Went to this place at Damai where Hui Hui recommended for their Roasted pork. Unfortunately, it was already finished and it was only 12noon. :( The place was so crowded especially with white-collared ppl. Not to waste Hui's effort of taking us there, we ordered the BBQ pork (Char Siew) and Roasted Chicken.
Nice. Too bad we did not get the chance to try the Roasted Pork.

As we were quite near to Foo Yuen 富源, so that's our next stop! Foo Yuen is very popular among the locals for its Roti Kahwin that they eventually open up a couple of franchise outlets. The one we visitedat Damai Plaza is the origin of it.
The toast was good! Love the steamed version. Bread was very soft n spongy except that I dislike the butter.

Well.. Hui did not have much and she took us to have cakes as she loves it and she knew that I like desserts too. Forgotten the name of the bakery shop. 
Cakes we had: yummeh~~

The variety of cakes offered! Too full to try the rest.

After all these food tasting session, we went back to our hotel to get a quick rest before meeting up Gary and Ivy who also happened to transit in KK for one night after their Taiwan trip. Hui picked them up and off we went to Sunset Bar which is located at Tanjung Aru Shangri-la Resort.

Beautiful sunset yea~

Ok... Next on was dinner! Hui brought us to Welcome Seafood Restaurant大茄来海鲜餐厅. Really impressed with the huge place. The whole stretch of shop was owned by them with each having their own kitchens to cater the huge crowds. That was good as we did not have to wait long.
