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.

Captured at the Kinarut flea market, Sabah, Borneo.

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.

Early Morning At Kinarut Pre Historic Shop

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.

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.

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.

Notice The kid Playing With His Reflection?

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.

Let your desires be ruled by reason.

"Where's My mum?"

#Kinarut Street,Old Town.


Kinarut is a town located about 17 km from Kota Kinabalu and just a few km from Putatan. It is one of the stops for the North Borneo Railway {out of commission for upgrading works}. A small town with just two rows of wooden shophouses and two rows of new concrete ones, the population here is 15,716 (circa 2006) consisting mainly Bajaus and Dusuns.


Kinarut is one of three places in Sabah with "kina" as part of its name. The word probably comes from the early connection with the Chinese. "Cina" is Malay for chinese. The other two are Kota Kinabalu (which derive its name from Mt Kinabalu, the highest mountain in South East Asia) and Kinabatangan River (the longest river in Sabah).

When we drop fear, we can draw nearer to people, we can draw nearer to the earth, we can draw nearer to all the heavenly creatures that surround us.
