Thought of the day-“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.”-Miriam Beard

In the east part of Sabah, particularly in Semporna, the Bajau people, Putu and Lato are inseparable. Some of them have moved to Kota Kinabalu city bringing along their tradition which includes, Putu and Lato. Both are staple food of theirs, a must in their diet. There’s only one way to know what Putu and Lato tastes like, eat em’! If you are an adventurous person, gastronomically speaking, head to Kota Kinabalu’s Filipino Market. We went. We consumed that Putu and Lato. This is our story, in regard to that particular experience.

“Your diet is a bank account. Good food choices are good investments.”-Bethenny Frankel

Al Fresco Restaurant is situated by the side of a beautifully landscaped sea-view pool. Al Fresco patrons enjoys outdoor dining with spectacular scenery and a relaxing atmosphere. The extensive selection of pasta and seafood dishes and famous wood-fired pizzas are complemented by a lively cocktail menu. We went here twice, both for lunch, on the first and second day of our stay at Magellan Sutera Resort. Though not that a grand restaurant, it is still worth visiting for its great food and affordable prices. Al Fresco is one of the many restaurants in Magellan Sutera Resort (Sutera Harbour Resort, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah).

“The sea is dangerous and its storms terrible, but these obstacles have never been sufficient reason to remain ashore..unlike the mediocre, intrepid spirits seeks victory over those things that seem impossible…it is with an iron will that they embark on the most daring of all endeavors..to meet the shadow feature without fear and conquer the unknown.”-Ferdinand Magellan

Such a great quote by Ferdinand Magellan. A quote that inspired us to be a bit different when we write-up our experiences. Each new place gives us different thoughts and ideas, broader perspectives though at times challenging and seem impossible, we still proceed the journey which in the end enabling us to write-up the experiences. Same as Magellan, we have no fear in conquering the unknown. It was at the Magellan Club Lounge that we were once again inspired by the same quote. The uniqueness of this lounge at Magellan Sutera Resort-Sutera Harbour Resort, inspired us as well. The wooden ceiling resembles  the cabin of olden days ships, as if we’re sailing while lounging here. We might be imagining things but at least there’s a foundation to that. By far, this is the best club lounge (of hotels/resorts) in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

“Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.”-Camille Pissarro

We had the chance to stay at The Magellan Sutera Resort, Sutera Harbour Resort recently. The resort is uniquely different from other resorts that we have been to. Some say, the difference is due to its unique architecture that is pretty much inspired by the Rungus longhouses of Borneo. For the two of us, this resort gave us that tranquility of the sea that we’ve witnessed from our own balcony. We felt so relaxed here. This is truly great resort in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. We love our room so much that we dedicate this entry alone to review the room that we stayed in for 1 night. A short stay but we both saw many beautiful things in this mammoth resort that always stay humble. We really mean that.

“I don’t see things as they are now because I see the future” –Sam Goi,  Executive Chairman, GSH Corporation

When was the last time that you stayed at a hotel or resort and that stay gave some impacts to your thoughts and inner soul? Rarely happens?

We were mesmerized by that breathtaking view of the South China Sea, with Islands that formed Tunku Abdul Rahman Parks, as the background. A postcard view, we must say it, seen through that big window in room 0535 at Hyatt Regency Kinabalu. We stood there, admiring the view, almost forgetting that we actually need to be somewhere else. It’s kind of being glued there, as if we do not want to do anything else other than being there looking at that picturesque view. This is one of the many Sea View Twin room available in this 5 star Hyatt Regency Kinabalu.
