And since it is semestral break, it is the best time for me to take this trip with a relative tagging along. it would be my second in Malaysia but first in Kota Kinabalu!
Last week, I booked our flight to KK at Cebu Pacific‘s Robinson’s Galleria ticketing office. This would only be my second time to book offline. Grant tickets such as this one I got as prize cannot be redeemed online and has to be transacted over the counter at a Cebu Pacific ticketing office.

Here I learned that there are three Kota Kinabalu Cebu Pacific flights weekly from/to Manila which flies every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
I contacted the Sabah Tourism Board – State Government of Sabah, Malaysia’s Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Environment. We exchanged emails for the hotel accommodations and city tour schedule.
To enumerate it, we are spending 4 days and 3 nights in Kota Kinabalu with:
Hotel accommodations for two persons on twin sharing basis with breakfast
Return Airport transfers
City Tour for 2 persons care of Sabah Tourism Board
Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo
I would like to thank Tracelynn of Sabah Tourism Board who has been very accommodating.
They call Kota Kinabalu the “Land Below The Wind!” In a few days, I will personally know why. I won’t be climbing the World Heritage SiteMt. Kinabalu since I’m going with an older relative.

It would be more of a chill-out relaxing Malaysian vacation over the weekend. I’ll be sharing our experiences and photos soon! Happy upcoming long weekend for those in the Philippines since it’s a Philippine holiday on Monday
