Short Talk:

I'm climbing Mt Kinabalu in Sabah on the 11th May. Will be doing some snorkelling at the marine park the next day.

Can someone recommend to me a nice beachside resort hotel to stay in KK? Budget around RM250.

Happy Birthday naeboo

Dear naeboo, today is your birthday.

naeboo = angel disguised as a devil

I actually find it somewhat amusing that I am wishing you happy birthday now.

Before we met, I used to always have this nagging feeling that you didn't like me, just 'cos you don't like "femes" bloggers. A long time ago, I even wouldn't have expected the two of us to have come this far, nor would I have considered you to end up becoming one of my most trusted friends. Ever.

The night I won RM200 eating raw eggs and cherry tomatoes covered in tabasco sauce, after you PUSHED ME ONTO STAGE.

Sure, you dissed me a lot. You dissed my hair. You dissed my face. You dissed my weight. You called me an orang utan. Dammit, you dissed my taste in women. BIG TIME.

But hey, at least I know that if I am ever in need of a honest-to-God no nonsense opinion, I have you.

You are one crazy cracked-up nutcase, but for some inexplicable reason, I know I can trust you. Either you are really special, or I am just too damn stupid.

You are one of the very, very few people I feel comfortable sharing my dirtiest secrets with. Then again, I know you have secrets dirtier than mine. :D

Although to be honest, I'm not too sure if I should feel special that you're sharing it with me, 'cos more often than not you just give me TOO MUCH INFORMATION. Ewww.

Your photogenic legs

But what I like most about us is the effortless chemistry that we share. Riding Osim iGallop together. Challenging me to eat Sup Torpedo. Chatting till 5am until I missed my flight. Taking a piss out of the audience at Deal or No Deal screaming "Bu Mai! Bu Mai!" *waves hands in a frantic manner*

And hey, thanks also for moderating my Chatterbox. To show you my appreciation, I shall dedicate the rest of this entry to my favourite classic naeboo quotes.



Talking To A Very Frustated naeboo

naeboo says: i'm so stresseddddddddd

Kenny says: its very easy, i show u

naeboo says: 253645869

Kenny says: (you forgot ur shift button)

naeboo says: i just feel like swearing in numbers



Clubbing in Penang

Kenny says: Eh, how come there are "mounds" in front of the clubbing district? So strange.

naeboo says: That's where they bury the dead clubbers.



naeboo's First Time At KL's Low Cost Carrier Terminal Airport

naeboo says: Whoa. This airport really low cost.

*The baggage carousel's alarm began to sound*

naeboo says: Hehehe! Even the alarm sounds so low cost. Like the sound of chicken chirping. They put chickens inside cages and poke them with needles. And then when the chicken gets fat, they take them out and sell it to KFC! Wahahaha!



Malaysia's IC System

Kenny says: Eh see, my IC spoil already. Got split in the middle.

naeboo says: Just laminate it lah.

Kenny says: Cannot! If I laminate it then I cannot use the smart chip anymore.

naeboo says: When's the last time you used the smart chip in your IC?

Kenny says: ...
Kenny says: Good point.



Poking Fun at Kuching's Ulu-ness

Kenny says: Wow, traffic lights in Penang really advanced hor. Got countdown timer somemore.

naeboo says: Yalor, in Kuching our traffic lights are powered by fireflies.

Jin Boone says: Really ar!?

naeboo says: Ya. And then if we wanna get Astro, we have to put a monkey on our roof to hold a wok pointing towards the sky. That's why when it's raining we cannot get any Astro reception.
naeboo says: BECAUSE THE MONKEY GOT SICK!




Hahaha! Happy birthday. Bitch. :P

Unregistered

For RM250 you can stay at Hyatt KK, it's located next to the shore, to get to the pier it's a 10 minutes drive from the hotel.

*P/s - check out the pubs "Shenanigan" & "Upper Star", located a stone's throw from the hotel. Drinks are a bit pricy though..

Have fun in KK

Unregistered

Happy Bday naeboo. Whoever you are~

Unregistered

p/s: TURTLE POWERRRRRRRRRRR!!

Unregistered

That wat we call best friend~ Happy birthday naeboo~

Unregistered

You can try promenade hotel. Hyatt will be nearer to pelabuhan. But i dont have much to recommend since i rarely go to town.

Try mensilau route for the mt climbing. The nite before the start of the climb, go for the steamboat at mensilau. Dont forget to order the fried mee. Go for the Poring hotspring after the climb.

Dont miss out the local delicacy of jeruk bambangan, live sago 'maggot', hinava, montoku, tuaran egg mee, original sabah pan mee, the famous ngau chap, etc.

Unregistered

are u in love with naeboo?

Unregistered

Happy Birthday to whoever you are! hehe

Unregistered

Unregistered

HAPPY B-DAY TO KENNY'S FRIEND. NAEBOO.

Unregistered

lolz , lemination for smart chip, happy birthday naeboo

Unregistered

I am from KK. You wanted to go snorkeling after you climb Mount Kinabalu? Hahahaha... no way man. I barely get off the bed after I reached the top of Mt. Kinabalu!! My muscles stiff like hell! (but that was like 4 years ago without any proper training)

Anyway, if you drop by KK.. make sure you go Shenanigan at Hyatt. A lot leng lui go there club one. Go Upperstar to try Cabonara too, know it's ur favourite.

I can't guide you cause I am nor a qualified tour guide nor a hot chick. You have fun though

Bing,

At KK, stay at a beach resort, not Hyatt which is in downtown! Stay at Shangri-la Tanjung Aru. Beware, there're 2 Shangri-la's in KK. The other is very far "in the jungle".

I agree on the Shenanigan club at Hyatt. the live band was awesome when I was there last yr.

Try seafood!

Unregistered

ahboooooooooooooo...

shen ri kuai le

wish u sun sun li li in everything u do yea =)

Unregistered

hehe looks like she's kinda hotgirl with tat hot legs=p mind to post some of her photo on ur blog?
btw happy birthday lenglui,feel sry to you as you grow 1 year older again!!! wahahaa

Unregistered

Kenny,

Don't take this the wrong way - But don't you have to work? A recent trip to Egypt, countless appearences at fun social events, marathon training and now climbing Mount Kinbalu? Errr...did you win the lottery or something? Super leisure boy Kenny!

Unregistered

with that budget, Promenade Hotel. location is convenient - walking distance to a seafood restaurant, mamak stall for midnight supper, and shopping mall further down the road. it is near to the sea, but no beach lah.

but if beach is not a must, then i would STRONGLY recommend the Liwagu Suite in Kinabalu Park. For around RM210 you get a stunning room that is ultimately calming and relaxing. it is something like a studio, with up- and down-stair. Downstair is a living hall with bathroom, upstair is the open-concept bedroom with toilet. it is attached to the Visiter Center Buidling, and the whole building is made of wood, which is very natural and special.

after you climb the mount kinabalu, dont think anybody could do anything that'll move the muscle anymore. better go for the poring hot spring instead to revitalise a bit. then only decide if you wanna do anything again...

Unregistered

Happy Birthday Naeboo ;)

Unregistered

boring *yawn*

Unregistered

Kenny, unbelievable! I logged in at 2am still can't be the first to comment. Just like others are waiting closely at your door every time.. I thought I used to be the most niter fan of your blog. Got your blog at homepage!

Unregistered

"That's where they bury the dead clubbers"

I nearly squirted my drink onto my laptop!!!!! Again! Darn dangerous!! AR!! I swear this is the last time I put on pore packs or eat or drink while reading Kennysia.com!!!

On another note, donno who Naeboo is, but she sure sounds cool and funny. Happy Birthday Naeboo!

Unregistered

are you in love with naeboo?

Unregistered

Nexus Karambunai Resort! :D Nice place.

Unregistered

Holiday every mth...
envy u laa

Unregistered

ah....feel so warm, friendship...remind me of my gangs,anyway, naeboo, who ever u r, u sure a cute, funny n lively gal, happy b'day !

Unregistered

What lenglui at Shenanigan? Most are ah-kuas la. RM250 at Nexus Karambunai? No way...man!

Unregistered

maybe you can consider going rafting in beufort. One day trip. Very adventurous and fun. You only have 2 site for rafting in Malaysia. And beufort one is the best! give it a try. Something new after all.

Unregistered

Go Pulau Tiga aka Survivor Island!!!!! Nice view, beautiful scenery, near Snake Island, can swim in volcano mud, snorkeling... but hav to drive to Kuala Penyu which is about 2 hrs ride from KK. Then, by boat about 30 minutes.

Enjoy ur stay in KK ya!!!!! Have FUN!!!

Unregistered

Eh? You coming KK ah? Im so suprised to see comments from so many people in KK who actually read your blog! Hahaha! U must not forget to go to Mesilau when you get to Kundasang on your way to Mt Kinabalu , Trust me ... Mesilau is a very nice place and there's a hotel up there ... and you'll love it more if you play golf up there! The weather up there is superb! Colder than Kundasang. As in places to dine in , @tmosphere is nice! Pricey though =) Beachside resort...perhaps you can try Rasa ria..but I heard the prices is around MYR 300+ per night...I was there 2 days back ... not sure which room though or you can try Nexus Karambunai . The cheapest hotel I can think of is Mimpian Jadi though .

Unregistered

hey naeboo... happy birthday yo....
hope ur day is as special as u are....
have a great one!!
cheers....

Unregistered

Owh Btw... get yourself to Kudat if you can , and you can visit the tip of borneo! The sea water there is super clean ... the views there are beautiful too . If you need a place to stay in Kudat you can try Ria Hotel . Its still new and the prices of rooms are quite reasonable ...you won't regret it!

Unregistered

heaps to try out with varying prices. around the RM100-200 price range would be (in no particular order) langkah syabas, beringgis beach resort, lembah impian, borneo golf resort, tuaran beach resort, orchid de villa.. probably some i missed out as well.

as for the slightly more expensive, there is Rasa ria resort, nexus karambunai, STAR, Magellan Sutera Resorts, and such. all 5-star and above so i guess the price would be above RM 250.

a personal recommendation for your price range and requirements, Beringgis Beach Resort is really not bad. they have wireless connection available at the lobby, and the landscape of the place is quire nice as well. food there is splendid, though pricey. rooms are quite well-furnished and such, quite good for one person stay i guess. only downside would be its being located far from town, so it wouldnt be good to stay there if you plan to go around town as well.

oh well. you decide. *shrug*

Unregistered

Haha, sounds like a sweet blogger.

Registered

don't even dream of nexus karambunai or the shangri-la... the only thing u're gonna get for your puny RM 250 is YMCA hahaha!

Unregistered

Isn't the last pic taken in Kuala Lumpur's Sg Wang (BB Plaza Area)... Why is it said Penang???

Unregistered

Wow you are going to KK. Hope you enjoy your trip.

Unregistered

i have this membership that entitles 20-80% discount for many hotels there. =)

Unregistered

Yeah, he fancies her.

Though he might not admit it.

Unregistered

So one thing to know about touring in KK would be you need a freakin car. There's no way around it if you're lookin' into a good time.

I agree that Shenanigans is a good pub to go to and it's just below Hyatt Regency. But staying there, though maybe on your budget would just give you an ordinary city experience. If you wanna feel the greens of my home, you gota stay outside. Resorts like Nexus, Rasa Ria (rm300) etc, where the beaches are just so white sanded and secluded.

I'd say you stay in the city hotels(near piers) for a couple o nights.like hyatt, shangrila, pan pacific. Later on, stay in the outskirts like Nexus and Rasa ria. You move out again, when you head inlands to climb Mt.Kinabalu.

I do recommend you save the climb for the last. Coz after you've reached Low's Peak and camwhored during the one of a kind sunrise, you're thighs will ache mad once you begin the descent. Believe me, it hurts going down than going up. And no, you're daily gym routines probably won't do you any good.

Unregistered

or you might fancy seaview hotel also in the heart of KK the http://www.radius-waterfrontkk.com 3star hotel, price range RM135-Rm205...got plasma tv somemore and of course complimentary Internet broadband services!!!

If you insist on beachside in KK...then its more than rm250..

Unregistered

oh ya.. i forgot to tell u the price. i jz went to Pulau Tiga 2 wks ago. The stay there cost me rm160 (2 days a nite), not included the ride from KK to Kuala Penyu.. its really damn worth it! I love the place so much!!

Unregistered

Naeboo also from kuching ar...Nice leg...lolz

Unregistered

Good fren of mine runs a tour agency. Give you good rate. Say Elizabeth reccommend you. Will warn him that you might contact him. http://www.borneotrails.com/index.cfm

Unregistered

hahaha Happy Birthday Naeboo

Unregistered

Bukit Bintang has got a monorail la

Unregistered

Hahaha.very good post Kenny! Happy birthday Naeboo and nice legs!! :P
Kenny, maybe Pacific Sutera in Sutera Harbour would be nice, within your budget? Shangrila Tanjung Aru is very nice, but that will set you back RM300-400++. I stayed in Le Meridien (RM230 nett if you book online), really good close to cinema, clubs etc.. but it's not a resort/no beach. Hyatt also around that figure if you book online. Karambunai would be too far from KK City, unless you have car! Ok..for good food..I think Little Italy is the BEST Italian restaurant in Malaysia! haha...for Japanese try Nishiki. If you stay in Le Meridian, one of the street behind it (Lorong sembilan I think, where you will see a huge banner advertising KL Bak Kut Teh) there's a stall that sell very nice noodle call "shen Rou Mien" I think, you should try that, it's very nice..:p
Keep up the good and funny post!
Cheers!

Unregistered

cute post !

Unregistered

happy birthday bitch... i mean nae boo ")

Unregistered

oh very nice legs :)

Unregistered

i do LOVE kenny. I admit

Unregistered

and hey, thanks everyone for those compliments! =D i do have nice legs. =D

Unregistered

Hey Kenny,

MOUNT CLIMBING!! U had better save it for the last!! Regardless of how athletics u r or how good u r at gym, u will surely get a swollen ankle or painful feet after the climb!! EVERYONE DID!!

Unregistered

Visit the town first, and only u go for the climb!

Shenanigans and Cocoon is a must-go for "To See and To be Seen".

@mosphere is the one n only revolving restaurant in Town, a must-go spot as well!

If u r staying in town, Warisan Square is a new commercial complex in Town, and finally the Sabahan can have Esprit, Padini, Starbucks, Secret Recipe, TImes Bookstore, Delifrance, etc...

Opposite of Warisan Sq, u can have a sea-front spot, i.e WATERFRONT, of which there r lotsa pubs and eateries! A spot not to missed out as well.

Out of town, RASA RIA RESORT AND KARAMBUNAI RESORT, is really a TWO THUMBS UP!!

ENJOY UR TRIP!!

READ THIS IF YOU WANT A GREAT TRIP TO KOTA KINABALU:

Do take the Mersilau Trail up to Mt. Kinabalu. The Timpohon trail is boring. Timpohon SUX. At Mersilau, it feels like another world. Like a lost world. Truly surreal.....Trust me on this one and thank me later....


Do go to Penampang to this restaurant called WAN WAN....Really fresh Seafood.....

And this mamak behind a Petronas Station (forgot where is this, Kota Kinabaluans, please enlighten), where they serve this killer curry fish head....

Ciao.....

Unregistered

"mamak behind a Petronas Station "

Its Krishna's Fish curry house, but alreay move to Plaza Grand millenium...

Unregistered

oi ! i'm not tat dumb.... did i really gave that expression ??! hahahahha....neaboo happy birthday ! ur real legs are nicer than the pic !

Unregistered

Oh damn, it's so funny that I keep laught outloud like a freak. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, hottie. I begin to like your bitchfeast!

Unregistered

kenny:
kk will b v fun. training not necessary but some would be helpful. ur normal gym routines wont do u any good. u can either go without training n suffer a bit, or, do wat i did: go to ur gym, set the treadmill to maximum gradient, and walk off 500 calories. do 3 times a week for 2 wks. ALSO. u know that thing where u step up 1 leg and ur other leg comes down and vice versa..like climbing stairs...yea.. use that one too, burn another 300 calories 3 times a week. also for 2 wks. after these 2, kk will be a breeeze. a walk in the park.

and naeboo..ur quotes r as good as ur legs =)

Unregistered

haaaaaaaaapyyyy bdayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to yoooooou. Naeboo got nice leggys *kekek*

Unregistered

its another happy birthday wish :)

Unregistered

beachside hotels at rm250 are not much hope. but you can always call up these hotels and ask for the rates..who knows they might get u a discount..since, you are Kenny..:)

suggestions:
1) shangri-la tanjung aru resort (the nearest to kk city, about 10-15minutes drive; easy accomodation)

2) shangri-la rasa ria resort (30-40 min drive frm kk)

3) nexus karambunai resort (30-40 min drive frm kk)

3) beringgis resort (30-40 min drive)


However, like all the above suggestions on the hotels around kk city...i would also prefers Hyatt Regency, Promenade hotel, Radius International Hotel Waterfront and Le Meridien. Check out this sites KK Hotels


And..yes, snorkelling after mt kinabalu is hardly to happen..unless u really have a regular 1-2 hours training prior climbing...really.

hope u have an enjoyable trip to kk :)

Unregistered

it hurts more going down than going up mt KK...my knees n hamstrings hurt like hell the entire 4 -5 hours, i had to lean on the guide's strong arm...so, going snorkelling the day after coming down from the mountain may not b a wise thing

and yes, i agree wif alex...all those normal gym routine wont reali help 'xcept for treadmill (increase the gradient!!) for cardio n the stepper thingy will do ur knees a big favour

oh yeah...forget abt carrying ur stuffs on ur own up the mountain if they weigh more than a laptop...just get a porter..n bring raincoat...when it rains, it reali pour up there!

Unregistered

Mate, there are no budget hotels in KK with nice seaviews and sandy beaches. Equip yourself with rm400-500 per nite for those. There are a few good suggestions from speakforkk. May consider city hotel with seaviews, good enough.

Unregistered

Hahaha, low cost huh
oh, well happy bday to naeboo :)

Unregistered

If your just looking for best hotel, then must be Sutera Harbour Resort/ Pan Pacific.

Unregistered

If u're going to Sabah, must definitely go white river rafting @ Sg. Padas. Fantastic experience!!

Unregistered

Wow...it's been quite sometime that i didn't really read your blog..busy like a bee..... cool entry ...

Belated Happy Birthday , Naeboo ....Hope it's not too late to wish u now ....

Kenny,
That's what friends are for.... :)

Unregistered

LERN2LOOKAFTERYOURIC

Nuff said.Period.

Unregistered

Why not try Tanjung Aru beach resort. Though it's quite a distance from the town but you have nice beach and lots of coconuts!!!

Enjoy!

Unregistered

Hoho, baru tau penang is so advance in traffic light XD

but penang is dirty o... kuching cleaner XD
btw, im from penang but stays in kuching :p

Unregistered

hi kenny, try island-hopping as well :) suterasactuarylodges.com manages tunku abdul rahman parks (manukan, mamutik & sapi islands). gayana is also a nice island but small beach

want duty-free items? go to labuan if you have the time. i agree with most of them - u must try white water rafting at Padas River.

beach side hotels nearer to KK - shangri-la tanjung aru, the hotels at sutera harbour. nexus is gorgeous... but too far from town.. others mentioned are good too

within city centre - promenade, radius, hyatt, le meridien all have rooms facing the sea. waterfront is like spore's clarke quay (konon lah) btw, i can get you corporate rates for promenade & radius hotels. my friend at hyatt informed me their current promo is RM270++ for 2 nights.

shenanigan's, cocoons, bed - good live bands. u will see leng lui everywhere :P (not only at night spots) but be forewarned: the majority of people in KK are... vertically-challenged

food - try local food. why eat something u can find in kuching? try something different bah

happy climbing! :) remember to show off your cert. if you're lucky, you'll see people carrying gas cylinders up & down mt kinabalu. i got passed by twice on my climbing trip :P

Unregistered

What kinda name is Naeboo?

Unregistered

I like this Naeboo chick.

Unregistered

Hi Kenny =) Hyatt hotel is beside the sea (but with no beach) and also right in the middle of the city. I would prefer Shangri-la (beach) hotel which is a bit off the city but it comes with a beach. I'm not sure about the rate though.
Go visit pulau Manukan or pulau Tiga(where the 1st survivor was filmed there, i heard the Council structures are still there) if u haven't been there. Anyway, have fun in KK!
ps: i can't imagine how are you gonna go snorkling right the next day after climbing mt kinabalu. not underestimating but just concerned =p might get cramps if not careful.

Unregistered

Sutera Harbor... if you have an east malaysian IC, they give you a facking good discount. You can call ahead and ask lah, since this promo was last year. Not sure if it's ongoing.

The discount will put the hotel in your budget range. We stayed at the Magellan, so I'm betting the other hotel will be cheaper still (if the promo is on)... can't hurt to check :)

Unregistered

slurp-slurp!!!

the naeboo's leg look so dishes but it seems a bit hairy. U din recommend her to use veet?

hmm...maybe u get close to her coz of her hairy monster charm!

anyway, happy b'day Nabu (in hokkien accent)
