We were staying for four nights at Le Méridien Kota Kinabalu. First evening we had dinner at Suria Sabah mall. The next morning we were picked up at 8:20AM from the hotel's lobby heading towards Pulau Gaya.
After a quick boat ride we arrived at the island's PADI 5-Star Dive Centre:
Went through some necessary briefings:
before doing 3 dives, one in open sea. It was a great experience with the boys. Our instructor Michael (from California) was excellent.
Our second morning was spent lazying around the hotel pool followed by a visit to Imago, KK's latest mall.
Watched Jason Statham try valiantly to make the Meg bearable but it's a dud of a movie.
Morning of Day 3 the boys and I headed out to Pulau Manukan for some jet-skiing:
Arriving at Pulau Manukan:
Dinner was with my friend from law school some 25 years ago at King Hu, Tanjung Aru (the duck is very nice):
In the end there was something for everyone: scuba-diving and water-sports for the boys, snorkelling + shopping for the ladies.
