Many faces of Sandakan

Hello my dears, whimsy was outstation yesterday to Kinabatangan Sandakan. Kinabatangan is about 2 hours journey by road from Sandakan. It is a small town dominated by palm oil related activities. Only a handful of 2 storey shophouses. Whimsy did not take many pics there coz it was sooooooooo HOT there. It must be about 35-38 degree C. However, whimsy wants to share Sandakan quite interesting sights with u'ol. Above is a make-shift wet market selling really fresh seafood. The prices okay I think. Prawns selling at RM12-15 per kilo.

This is Sandakan airport. Very small with only a handful shops selling "entah hapa-hapa" (frozen seafd, souvenirs, sweets, crisps) items. I particularly like the stained glass wall. very "da vinci" kan (stained glass was used in mostly old buildings, and in Sandakan they are usually seen in old churches).

Our propose site in Kinabatangan. If u squint ur eyes, u can actually see the floating restaurant on top of the murky pond (LOL!!)
Oh ya, for lunch we had Bak Kut teh Seafood. Bak Kut teh is usually related with pork kan, this is Whimsy's first time Seafd Bak Kut Teh. Surprisingly they were yummy!!!!Fresh prawns, scallpos and fish. I did not take photos coz i was "shy shy cat" with the rest of the consultants.
