A cloudy sunset. Processed for a darker feel, this was around the days when the typhoons were active in the Philippines, if I remember correctly. KK often feels the tail-end effects of these typhoons. However, all was clear 3 days later, as shown in my previous photo taken from the same spot.
I still have many photos to upload, but not much time to focus on any series. So I will be posting a mix of everything. Some vivid colours coming from another tamu, up next, from Tamu Kinarut.
Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing, Only a signal shown, and a distant voice in the darkness; So on the ocean of life, we pass and speak one another, Only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence.

The proprietors are the parents of my friend Cynthia , executive director of LEAP, an NGO doing conservation work (see www.leapspiral.org)... and THANKS for all of the nice comments and favoriting.
Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world. For, indeed, that's all who ever have.

Ma'am recognised someone in the crowd of shoppers. For some, the tamu is as much a weekly gathering of friends and families, as it is about earning a living. She was among a group of ladies selling an assortment of vegetables and fruits. It was a delight to see them in constant conversation and chatter.
I like the BW version of this photo, which turn out well for a portrait (posting it another time). However, I prefer this one for the colours of her surrounding. This photo looks like it could have been taken in any of our neighboring countries. Photographed at the tamu in Kinarut.

If nothing seems to be working, do a selfie! hehehe ...
Actually it was a fantastic sunset but I just didn't feel that I did a good job somehow. So, when I feel that I shot crappy stuff... I'll shoot a couple of selfies to make me feel better! Strange? No?
Kinarut, like many other towns in coastal Sabah, has a thriving fish market. The produce on this photo are probably from a commercial fishing boat. Many local fishermen are also actively engaged in daily fishing.
In the smaller towns, the variety of fish consist of mainly those ones that are commonly consumed in the homes. These are usually deep fried, pan fried, grilled or cooked in curries (various types of mackerel, breams, sting ray, yellow-fin tuna). The higher priced varieties (groupers, snappers, coral trouts and other reef fish) are exported or bound for the seafood restaurants, but the odd sizes are readily found in the larger fish markets. Other popular seafood items are the shellfish, crabs, prawns and squids.
I found the prices here in Kinarut to be significantly cheaper than in Kota Kinabalu. This tamu is much smaller than the one in Putatan or KK, but the crowd is no less. There was no space to stand still and I spent much time getting out of the way of passing people.

There is no need to forage for food and evade predators in the wildlife park. On the other hand, it may be thinking.. "Oh no, not peas again for lunch. How about some fruits?" Well, they do get their servings of fruits and seeds, too. This wonderful creature of Borneo is a must-see if you visit Sabah. Photographed at Lok Kawi Wildlife Park, Kinarut.

Sabah is surrounded by the sea... and fish is abundant, cheap and widely consumed. I don't keep fish in my fridge. There are markets nearby and when I want fish, they are bought and cooked the same day. Prices have gone up in the past year, but still cheap.
However, you do pay a steep premium at the seafood restaurants. They sell not only fresh, but live fish, crustaceans and shellfish. You choose your seafood while they swim in their tanks.
