    Brunch, Published on 23/09/2018

    » Landing in Kota Kinabalu, we weren't sure what to expect. The name, to most globetrotters, conjures up the sky-piercing Gurung Kinabalu -- a mountain whose conquerable peak of 4,095m entices both novice and serious mountaineers from all over the world. But we weren't here for that. We were here for everything else (that the Malaysian Tourism Board could stuff) in between.
