Selamat Datang!! Welcome to Sabah..


Firstly, just ignore my English writing, I don’t write English fluently… at least you all understand la bah.

I dont really know why people call it ‘Land Below The Wind’ or known as Sabah, negeri di bawah bayu.. maybe because of its location being just south of the typhoon prone region around Philippines..(actually that’s what written on the Weekipedia).

It is the second largest state in Malaysia after the state of Sarawak which it borders with on its south-west. Sabah used to be a British crown colony known as North Borneo prior to partnership with Federation of Malaya, Sarawak & Singapore to form the Federation of Malaysia in 1963. Currently, its state capital is Kota Kinabalu, formerly known as Jesselton.

‘Made In Sabah’ is just about a blog of almost anything a little bit here and there that happens around me in Sabah.. Interesting spot, a great place to visit, hapennings around Sabah and almost about anything that you need to know about Sabah.. Sabah bagus bah! (ceh! mcm Radio Sabah ja this!!. Made In Sabah was just my tiny little place of providing you some knowledge about my birth place, and Why?

Well.. firstly because Sabah is the place where I born and I love my home land, here are brief points little bit about Sabah thought you might want to know :

  • Mt. Kinabalu, a world heritage site was the 2nd largest Mountain in Southeast Asia.
  • Rafflesia, the largest single flower in the world that can only be find here.
  • Situated in the 3rd largest island in the world.. Borneo.
  • More than 32 etnics group live on one land which you cannot find elsewhere.
  • Sipadan, the world’s most beautiful island and heaven for divers.
  • Orang Utan, one of the four great apes of mamals in the world that can be find here.
  • The world’s biggest Orang Utan Sanctury.
  • Maliau Basin, the oldest rainforest jungle in the world.
  • Matlan Marjan, the only Sabahan + Malaysian professional player whom managed to score 2 goals against a full England team while playing for Malaysia in 1991.

Did I miss something here?

    Hi there. Was wondering if you could add the Borneo International Marathon into your calendar of events. It is scheduled for October 12th 2008, is the first marathon in Kota Kinabalu in over 20 years and is currently the only marathon in Borneo for this year.

    Would really appreciate any help and support you could lend to us in helping to publicise this event.

    Thanks again for your support.

    Hello, Made In Sabah!
    Love your site!
    Will be going back to Sabah in June for 3rd time. Taking my son with me this time around. Your info. about Lok Kawi and Gaya Street Market is perfect. Will go to both places.
    Is Lok Kawi very far from Kinarut? We will be spending a few days at Seaside Travellers Inn, but will not rent car.
    Hoping that my son falls in love with Sabah, too. It is my little piece of heaven on Earth. 🙂

  19. esharkj says:

    Hi Teresa!
    If you are staying at Seaside Travellers Inn which is in Kinarut, then Lok Kawi Wildlife Park is not that far already, about 7-8 km away. I’m afraid you need to get maybe a van or car to go there as there is no public transportation to go in to Lok Kawi Wildlife Park. Maybe you request for a transportation from the place you stay.

    As for Gaya Street, make sure to plan your trip here because its only open on every Sunday.

    thanks all for the compliments.. 😉
