  1. My very first proper grown up full time job was taking international phone reservations for a very posh hotel chain that had a hotel in Kota Kinabalu – I always imagined it would look exactly like this so it’s great to see a photo! I can still only dream about going there though 😦

      How funny! I wonder what the hotel name was–I know it wasn’t the one we stayed at 🙂 Luckily for us, we know people in Malaysia so it made traveling there a lot more reasonable. And it was nice to have people who speak the language and they ordered the best food and knew all the best restaurants.

      • Sounds like the best way to travel – with locals! It was the Hyatt chain I worked for, but the hotel may well be owned by another one now…

        Locals do know the ins and outs of a place. However, if people visit me in London, I hope they are prepared to be in and out of the pubs 🙂

    Quite Beautiful! I believe you’ve captured the rays of the sun and it’s reflection admirably! The clouds provide for just enough perspective. Excellent Photo! Cheers!

    That’s the sort of scene that requires a long cool drink! Just to make it totally perfect of course!
