Tanjung Aru Beach, Kota Kinabalu

Tanjung Aru beach is the most famous beach at Kota Kinabalu. It is located just 5 minutes away from the airport.
What disgust me the most is there is a sticky trench bringing the water straight to the sea. Can you imagine after that you swim together with this water and sometimes accidentally you will drink a little? Eeww...
Anyway, this is a great place for family as they built a great facilities such as playgrounds for the kids to enjoy their day.
Well made walking path to make sure visitors to stay away from the green grass.
As for a beginner in landscape photographing, this can be a great place to start to learn the basic.
I wonder if the lotus flower will bloom in this water but if they do, this will be a very beautiful scene.
A great relax place if you are away from that stinky trench. 
A number of great restaurants opened to serve you some refreshments by the beach.
Very near to the airport for you to see some airplanes depart from the airport.
We have MAS, MASwings and AirAsia servicing you by taking you through air to Kota Kinabalu. Now, we have a competitive new aviation company which is known as Malindo will be joining the competition. Their prices are very exciting too especially when you are flying from KLIA airport instead of the lousy LCCT airport. 
Hopefully, Malindo will stay on with such good prices so we can say goodbye to AirAsia. At this moment, I would have to say goodbye to Kota Kinabalu first. Till next year!
Overall, I am not really recommend the beach here for swimming. I would rather taking a boat to one of the islands at Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park for my family day instead. The cleanliness here is a question mark.
Total Damage: Parking is chargeable but limited spaces.
Cleanliness: 2/5
Recommended?: Not for swimming.

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.

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.
