Kota Kinabalu is the state capital of Sabah, formerly known as Jesselton. It is located on the northwest of Sabah, Malaysia.
I have been living here for more than 15 years, before this I was living with my parents outside of the city. When I first arrived at Kota Kinabalu it feels like a very big city. Big shopping mall, movie theater, sports stadium, tall condominium, lots of beautiful park and beach, lots of beautiful island etc etc.
One day, few years back, I decided to bring my camera and go to the streets that I rarely went for a walk.
This is one of the famous shopping mall building called Center Point Sabah. Majority of people in Kota Kinabalu will go here to do shopping and entertainment. Usually I will drive through the inside parking lot of the building.
But that day I decided to park far from this mall and decided to just walk and see what is happening around the area.
Some of the driver for the public transportation, a bus and taxi driver with their conductor.
There is a lot of pigeon on the street, they are not afraid of the people walking around them. They are like a pet on the street.
A father is talking to his son while waiting for people to come to their stall. They are selling various type of home made food.
A local horologist, he will repair any broken watch in front of his customer.
This is one of the famous food in the area, its the grilled chicken wing.
A shop that sell dried and salted fish.
This place that caught my attention. Kids are playing around outside like its on the park :D
This was the end of me taking photos. I decided to talk with some of the children, went to eat and went home.
But now, I cant see any children playing on the street anymore. The pandemic surely had change our life and the environment so much.
