BLOG SURFS: Attractions

Arriving at the Sunrise hotel in downtown Kudat, this man Peter who has a car tried to persuade us to go with him to the tip of Borneo, his quoted price is 60 ringgits total and some additions for extra attractions like the longhouse, the gong factory and some beaches, anyway we told him we shall think about it and get back to him tomorrow. Right now we need to check in. The receptionist told us the cheapest room is 25 ringgits for a double fan room, we wanted to see it, it’s at the top floor and when we saw the room full of graffiti in the wall and stinky we decided to upgrade a bit. We ended up in an a/c room with cable tv and indoor toilet for 48 ringgits. The room is old but better looking.

We are both starving so ended up walking to the esplanade and found some stalls selling seafood grilled. One piece of mid-sized fish for 1 ringgits and mid-sized squid for 1.5, super cheap! Su had to get back later to get more change as he paid more than he should, we realized later.—
