to my friend Chris Woo www.flickr.com/photos/25106805@N03/ for being such a good friend :))
It was 6 pm when we commenced our second to the last day in Sabah. We still didn't know where to rest from a long trip coming from our 3-4 hour drive from Kudat and Ranau. Max's original idea was just to sleep in the car since it's just one night, but the temperature dropped in the evening and it didn't seem like the best option. We talked about where we preferred to stay, either at Kundasang, where the face of the mountain can be seen, or near the National Park, about 10 minutes drive from Kundasang. I really wanted to stay at the former to take photos of the mountain's front at night and since it's closer to KFC (haha!). However, it started to rain hard and the sun was being replaced by darkness. It was also too cold.
At 7 pm, we finally decided to stay at a hostel in front of the National Park, where we will be coming from for our morning trek the next day. I hesitated because I really wanted to take a photo of the mountain and was hoping for a starry night. But, it was the best option at that time. So, I hoped for the best.
I slept early and woke up at 2am. It was so cold probably ~10 degrees Celsius or colder (estimate). I was only wearing a sando and a pair of shorts initially. But then I went out and it was too cold so I went back for my jacket. It was cloudy and misty. I couldn't see any stars at that time. My hope for a photo of the Malaysian skies was almost gone. Eventually, I went back the lodge because I couldn't bear the cold. I set my alarm at 3am again hoping for clear skies around Mt. Kinabalu.
Finally, at 3 am, this happened. The drive, the alarms, and the cold was all worth it.

I added a Gaussian blur to make the dreamy effect, dodge/burn here and there. Happy Monday/evening!
