2.30am… woke up to go to eat here at Tawau 😀

We checked out from Executive Hotel and proceeded to our Lahad Datu’s office. Around 10.20am we took off to Kunak.

Reach at our office in Kunak around 11.35am. We did our task but faced the same problem… telephone service.

In our initial planning, we will go straight to Tawau. But since it is only 12.40pm, we decided to stop at our Semporna office to send our equipment so that we don’t have to unload it at our Tawau’s office for safety.

We reach at our Semporna office around 1.25pm. We barely missed our district’s boss. We talk just for a while since he needed to attend his task outside. We drop our stuff and headed to Semporna town to see what they have here. This is the first time I come to Semporna.

My first impressions about Semporna… small towns but busy with petty business… a lot of stalls selling all kind of stuff like cloths, food, etc… like ‘night market’ in the afternoon.

Then he headed to Tawau around 1.40pm and reach there around 3.30pm. Check into hotel and I had my lunch at the hotel restaurant around 4pm. Then I slept until my colleague called me just before 6pm. They’re going to ‘buka puasa’… but I decide to continue sleeping. I did not have my dinner since I’m still full with my late lunch. And since my room has two breakfast, I can take both the ‘sahur’ and breakfast 😀

Around 7.30pm, we went around Tawau town and had some tea near the hotel. We invited one of our colleagues here to join us. Went back to hotel and slept 😀

Had ‘sahur’ with my colleagues… it is 4.33am now… going to sleep then going to take breakfast after that… and off to Semporna around 8.30am later…

Count how many small vehicles you can see?… 99% are 4wd! It’s not just a sign of wealth… not just because of wealth, but more on necessity.

More than 400km from home… while in Lahad Datu… now more than 500km here at Tawau.

I thought Danum Valley is off limit from logging…
