TRIP TO RANAU

If you still remember last week i have a whole day travelling to Ranau but guess what , the trip start with worse traffic jam that i ever had to Ranau . Start from Kg Kibas (you can see the signboard if you on the way to Ranau) to Ranau which usually take only 10 minutes drive become nightmare after it take around 3 hours drive . I feel lucky because my car is automatic , i think i have leg cramp if i use the manual cars.

Then arrives in Ranau , im expecting the good food but all the restaurant is full with people . Then i go around the town and found a restaurant with less people . But , again it become worst when the food is not as good as in the menu . I end up make a worst face when paying the food . Still i dont complain to them because i realize that might the best food that they can prepare. TT

Can we skip to the good part?

Well , its ok . The days might start bad but i ll not make it a whole bad days . Getting my mood listening this audio. :).

This is something that i can remember for this trip. Another good memory build in my picture collection. Because it was cold on the way . So , i have the toilet stop in KUNDASANG . KUNDASANG is a nice place to buy vegetable from the local farmers , but because i dont have the mood when i come there i dont bother to walk around. Lucky this KUNDASANG MEMORIAL PARK is just behind the toilet .

Historically , this MEMORIAL PARK is a fortress to fight that been used to fight Japanese during the world war 2. Now it has been used to remember those who has fallen during the war .

Very refreshing breeze and breathtaking view from up .

I imagining the previous war , this fortress has a good advantages because it was located in higher ground . Using canon is a good choice while defending this place.

SHORT JOURNEY

Even the journey start pretty bad , but its okay because this trip is worth it . This is not just a trip where i can enjoy myself seeing the pretty place but also to reflecting myself on the history and scarified that has been made by the old people for us to live now. I cant imagine , how if i was born in that era . Can i survive ? or i ll be the one who ll die first in that war. TT

Those in war memorial are all heroes who gave up their lives.

I really enjoy places like this with so much history. It looks like they really take care of the gardens as well. All in all, it looks like a good day out for you!

This is one of the best memorial to visit in Sabah.. Beautiful view but also with a sad history.. I came here a couple of years ago.. Are there any overseas tourist at the moment?

Thanks for posting in the ASEAN Hive Community.
