HDOK Walkathon 2011

The staff from Pharmacy Department whom participated in HDOK Walkathon 2011 

It's been a year since I first came to Sandakan and worked here in Hospital Duchess of Kent (HDOK). I was glad to be able to participate in this event which was conducted on 17 December 2011. It brought me with the memory during secondary school where we used to participate in Merentas Desa or Larian Amal events.

WORLD AIDS DAY Charity Dinner 2011, Sandakan

The WORLD AIDS DAY Charity Dinner was held at Sabah Hotel on the eve of official launching of World AIDS Day 2011 at Yu Yuan Secondary School. Sandakan is proud to be the host state for this year national level celebration organised by Ministry of Health.

Event started by the welcoming speech by the President of Sandakan AIDS Support Group Association (SAGA), Dr. Zaitun Yahya which also the Director of Klinik Kesihatan Sandakan or commonly known as Jabatan Pesakit Luar (JPL) Sandakan.  

McDonald's Sandakan finally opened!

McDonald's Sandakan finally opened its door bringing the only second town in Sabah other than Kota Kinabalu to have an outlet. For many especially the locals, it have been a long wait. As for me, I been monitoring the progress of the McDonald's construction every single day when I passed by the site. It's good to see how an empty land had turned to a brand new favourite fast food restaurant. 

I have been always a fans of the McDonalds's Breakfast and McDonald's lunch. The food here in Sabah is not cheap and above the normal price. Hence, the menu here is comparable of those other local foods thus bringing a new choice for the consumers.

Pasar Ramadhan @ Taman Fajar, Sandakan

Happy fasting month to all our dear Muslim friends! Hari Raya will be coming towards the end of the month while we will be spoil for choices of food during the one month long Pasar Ramadhan. 

This Pasar Ramadhan is located at the Bulatan Taman Fajar. It is not a big scale one and touring around for 15 minutes can walk past all the stalls here. Well, couldn't expect much as their usual night market located at Kim Fung is also a short and small scale.

Taman Buaya @ Sandakan (Sandakan Crocodile Farm)

Yo, folks! I'm back with a post on my recent visit to Taman Buaya Sandakan aka Sandakan Crocodile Farm. Been in Sandakan for almost a year, but I'm yet to visit this place which is among place of interests in Sandakan.

Well, the main thing here is the Crocodile Show which is performed twice daily, one at 12 pm and another one if not mistaken at 3-4 pm. Sorry for my bad memory. So, do come at correct time otherwise you wouldn't want to waste your money. The first step before the show started was to moist the surface of the floor with water.

Traffic blackout @ Batu 4, Sandakan

Oops, long time didn't update my blog. Well, there are many stories, foods, places of interest that I wanted to share. However, time is really a limiting factor. I wish I could have more time but in reality, I should focus more on my working commitment.

In this post, I would like to share on blackouts that happen so frequent that it has become a norm to the Sandakan people. I not sure about the whole Sabah, but definitely, in Sandakan, probability of blackout is proproniate to the extend of the downpour. When this happens, there is no traffic police to control the traffic as in  like KL but the motorists just simply cut in and there. That's normal I supposed but in long run, it wouldn't be good as this may bring untoward incidents.

I understand that the electricity supply may not be as functional as in the West but at least there should be a traffic police stationed at busy road should such event occurs. Just my few cents~

Kedai Kopi Thiam & Minuman @ Mile 9 Sandakan

Located at Mile 9, another spot for dining with the special UFO and beef noodles. 

Beef noodles @ RM 5.50. Though it's claimed among the best, I still think it vary very much compared to KL. Eg. taste, the organ parts and the a bit dilute soup.

Gurney Drive Food Court @ Penang

Cravings for Penang food? Where else other than the Gurney Drive Food Court aka the food paradise of which you can find all the cheap  and tasty signature foods of Penangites.

We took no delay to start order the food from various stalls in this food court. You can sit at any tables and make orders from any stall. During the peak hours, it is somehow difficult to get a seat and the staff might not be able to deliver your ordered food in time due to the crowd and too many customers.

Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary @ Sandakan

Aloha! Have you ever been told that the monkeys in Sabah are totally different from the Peninsular. Before I came to Sandakan, my friend Wan Ying keep telling me that I should visit the monkey as I would have never seen such species before. 

On one fine day, I got the chance to pay a visit to the famous tourist spot, the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary located far away from Sandakan town. Actually, not really far la, about 45 minutes but the journey was a bit 'hurting' to your car as it need to travel pass about 4 km untarred, 'rocky' and uneven road inside a palm oil plantation.
