ah forgot to mention, hafriz will be joining us for today's snorkelling trip. his ETA will be around 9am at Jesselton point, and since it was still early, we spent time around Gaya Street Sunday Market. A flea market with lots of stuff, including antiques, pets, rare things like crickets, food, souvenirs etc. Price kinda cheap too if you are good at looking around and bargaining. Well...isal bought a fake-nike bag, which we thought cheap...which later was not. The bag had the zip torn after few heavy uses, and it was while we were still in KK. I bumped onto Ikram, my colleague from Newfield who was on short family trip before heading to SPE ATW on the week after.

The rest of the day we spent at 3-islands, instead of 4. Our first destination was Mamutik Island. Just to note, on top of the chartered boat which include the rental of the life jackets and snorkelling gear, we paid the entrance fee for the marine park around rm3. Only once, as this fee covers the access to other island in th e marine park too.
Mamutik was just ok. We had to snorkel from the beach, and in general, not much to see, i mean the coral and fish. I didn't go far as the mask got some leak etc. and i had to consistently clear the water after few minutes of snorkelling.

finally...we arrived jesselton point and walked back to our hotel. We went our for dinner at the nearby food court at the waterfront. very nice ambient and selection. we had seafood and i think the price was quite ok for rm90 with fish, prawn and calamari... pardon me, didn't take the picture. then..we had our walk along the main street of the town before stopped by at the reflexology nearby the hotel for a foot massage. damn..this is among the reason i love KK..the spa here is relatively cheap..it was like in Bali, Krabi etc. for one hour foot massage..it was around rm30 and i had a good session where the therapist, a lady, was friendly and informative enough telling me the reason some points on my foot react certain ways etc. when pressed. Happy ending...in a good way...hehehe...
