Weekend at Kasih Sayang / Kokol
A couple of months back I entered a competition organised by the folks at Kasih Sayang Resort. All that was needed to do was to submit photos of ourselves or whichever of us IN the resort.
I was one of the winner and I got a complimentary free night's stay! WEEEE. I wanted to bring the two ladies, Angel and Ellie at first because they've never been to Kasih Sayang but sister was in town, so I decided to make it a family affair instead.
Quite frankly, I've always constantly wanting to go to Bukit Kokol and/or Kasih Sayang because the view up there is SIMPLY urgh, breathtaking. I will never be able to vividly describe to you how no matter really how hard I try. The view sweeps me off my feet every single time. And I've been to some places in my life, nothing quite like the feeling of being up in Kokol. I figured, I must really love this place.
There was no sunset when we reached Kasih Sayang, it was very cloudy, the skies ready to pour. Thunderstorm coming from the right.
The picture perfect no-blockage panoramic view of Kota Kinabalu, being engulfed in fresh air, the mystical sounds of the trees and the forest, the colours of the night, over the company of the moon and the stars, the natural alarm clock - all these and so much more. Ah, I really love Kokol. I appreciate the fact that all these are accessible thanks to Kasih Sayang.
I MEAN LOOK AT THIS. GARHH.
Decided to take a snap of this adorable little dining area. Right next to it is like a birds' cage. The birds were sleeping so beautifully, I took some photos of them but nothing turned out nice so I might have deleted them then and there : |
WHO WANTS TO COME WITH ME TO KASIH SAYANG AGAIN. Oh God, I love this place.
