    Review: Tune Hotels 1Borneo, Kota Kinabalu

    My Kota Kinabalu Trip – Day 1

    Day 1 – 5th July I arrived safely in Kota Kinabalu around noon-ish and was picked up by Tim. Oh, before that, when I was on the way to LCCT, Mag gave me ring and said, “Fi! I have a disease!” Then I replied, “Huh?!? Chickenpox?!?” “No.I have dengue.” “WHATTT?!?!?!?!” Apparently she contracted dengue from her officemate and was feeling feverish for a few days before finally doing a bloodtest and was confirmed dengue. Her body was full of rashes and she was just getting better from her fever. Poor girl! Anyway, Tim picked me up from the airport and we went to the house, rested for a bit then…
