Jesselton Point, Kota Kinabalu

Kota Kinabalu will be final destination for my East Malaysia trip. I took Royal Brunei from Brunei to Kota Kinabalu which is just require a 40 minutes flight. 

However, it is not really advisable to take Royal Brunei because of the long check-in queue. I really find it pretty ridiculous when we have more than 100 passengers building up the queue and they just arranged 3 staffs to do the check-in. Actually this is not the ridiculous part. The most ridiculous part was they arranged 2 staffs at the Mas Wings counter when there are only 1-2 passengers were queuing per counter. What kind of management is this? Some more the staffs are chatting among themselves and through their walkie-talkie taking their own sweet time. I am really frustrated with this kind of service they are providing.

Jesselton was the original name before they changed it to Kota Kinabalu. All sea activities or island activities will be gather and depart from here.

Nice looking public phone which is not a deco but it can be used.
This is the price chart and timing to Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park and Labuan. After reading this chart only I realised that actually I can use an alternative way instead of taking the plane or bus from Brunei to Kota Kinabalu. The alternative way is from Brunei - Labuan - Kota Kinabalu which is just cost RM60/way. The journey will be about 6 hours. However, I only know the time from Kota Kinabalu to Brunei which is only at 8.00am but I am not sure about from Brunei to Kota Kinabalu.
Just the moment you are stepping here, the people from the counter will keep on calling you to come over. Everybody is fighting for your business. If you come in big group, you have the bargain call.
This is the jetty where all the boats are parking here waiting to go to Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. There are five islands in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park which are Pulau Sapi, Pulau Gaya, Pulau Mamutik, Pulau Manukan and Pulau Sulug. At this jetty, there are restaurants and cafe open at night for the tourist so nothing really delicious over here but expensive. Unless, you are a person who likes to dine by the sea.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.
