How old are you during the year 1996? Where were you during the year of 1996? but that’s not really the question here, the question is.. have you ever wonder how would Kota Kinabalu city look like 12 years before? Have you noticed any development changes during 12 years back until now. For those Sabahan that have been studied, lived and survive in outside Sabah or even Malaysia and not been around Kota Kinabalu for many years, take your time to look at the picture after the jump.. I’m about to provided you with a simple graphic material showing up the changes happens throughout all the year 1996 to present.
