Alice Travels: Welcome to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah!

I am finally here in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah! (I actually arrived three hours ago...)

Even Malaysians need passport to enter Sabah!

This West Malaysian (me) very nearly forgot to bring my passport for this trip. I vaguely remembered from my past trip to East Malaysia (Sabah) that passport is needed. So I played safe and brought it along.

My Sabahan friend (also former colleague) later told me that I could also enter Sabah with my Malaysian identity card, but the Immigration will issue a slip which must be returned upon exit. However, with my passport, no slip will be issued.

I look forward to a wonderful day a few more hours later. For now, it's time to catch some sleep! A dopo!
