Kota Kinabalu - Day 2

Up around 6am shower and then down for breakfast, Buffet style but so many choices, (however you really need to go early to get the best.)
I had hot sunny side up eggs, with bacon mushrooms baked beans chicken curry and rice, toast, fruits, and juice I can tell you it was a feast and I loved it. One bad thing was their coffee yuk some powder crap, but Tip for you after breakfast go down to the foyer (novotel hotel)
bonjour cafe and get fresh brewed coffee for rm2.50 so nice. so a great start to the day.

this is it served in nice relaxing chairs, just used my ipad and chilled out for one hour.

Then it was rush to get ready for the tour bus arriving to take us to the Kinabalu Park and Gardens then onto the pot puri springs,
Then afternoon over to the Lok Kawi Wildlife Park. A full day but one worth doing as we only had three days, and most is for shopping lol.

We then went to Cinema to watch the new film
 "Killer Elite", inspired by true events is an action adventure spy film which follows Danny (Jason Statham), one of the world's best spec-ops agents. Brought out of unsolicited exile to execute a mission of vengeance and personal salvation, he regroups his old team of spies to rescue former mentor as well as to break into the highly feared British Special Air Service (SAS). They face off against ex-SAS operatives who call themselves 'The Feather Men', led by Spike (Clive Owen), provide impenetrable wall of security and Danny and his team must take down Spike and his 'Feather Men' before their actions result in a global catastrophe.

 great film worth watching i give 8/10

We then went for few drinks (nightcaps) and off to bed.
