Thought of the day-“You are what you believe yourself to be.”-Paulo Coelho

It’s a long stretch, that route we saw from above, from Papar town to Tuaran Town. In the middle is Kota Kinabalu City. This particular route is about 88 KM long with so many amazing eateries here and there.

This is a story about Cassava and the effort by Roslee Ladalo in cultivating it, producing sustainable food in his own self sufficient garden located in Kg.Ketiau, Putatan, Sabah.
