Tanjung Aru Beach

Tanjung Aru Beach is a public beach in Kota Kinabalu. When I was there to pass the time before going to the airport, I saw families and a group of young people having picnic, children playing, kite and ice cream ambulant vendors, and people waiting for the sunset. Some ladies, presumably tourists, dramatically posed for photos with the sunset as background.

Kudat Beach

Situated east of Malaysian Borneo is the Kudat town endowed with wide good looking beach.  As compared to the beaches in Langkawi, there is handful of visitors here even though the beach is beautiful. Must be the absence of expensive resorts that makes it attractive in its untouched state.

Malays usually eat with their hands and it is not unusual to see a kettle with water on a dining table. That kettle is not a beverage receptacle, rather an apparatus for cleaning one’s hand with water right before eating.
