Street Of Kota Kinabalu - Before The pandemic - This is my #1 entry for the #monomad challenge

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.

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.
