My first ever international travel was to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. We wanted to optimize our stay and visit as much tourist spots as we could given the not-so-long-time that we had. Luckily, we were able to contact a fellow Pinoy who now resides in KK and makes a living out of being a tourist guide. We arranged for a city tour with a private car and a driver so going from one place to another was no problem.

The first place we visited was Sabah State Mosque (also known as City Mosque). It has one majestic dome and gold inlays. Pretty elegant, really.

The mosque could accomodate up to 5,000 worshippers at one time. Unfortunately, it was still closed when we dropped by so we did not get to see the interior of the place. Nothing much we could do but take pictures and stare in amazement at this stunning piece of architecture.

Visiting this place was the perfect jumpstart to a day of exploration around Kota Kinabalu.
