Family Vacation to Sabah - Day 1

This was a long time plan of my parents to get everybody (me, my brother and sister) with the rest of the grandchildren (9 of them) plus the in laws for a trip to Sabah. It was a 4 days 3 nights holiday and our destination is Kota Kinabalu. Our flight was the night flight , so by the the time we reach KK, we didn't do anything much except right away find our bed and pillow , ready to get rest .We stayed at Marina Court overlooking the sea. It's a three room apartment.
The next day , my mom and dad has planned for all of us to go for island hopping. We took a boat from Jessleton Point heading towards Mamutik and Manukan Island. The weather is sunny and fine. So we chartered a boat complete with snorkeling gears and life jackets. Paid the conservation fee, tariff fee and boat transfer fare.. off you go

My family
We arrived at Mamutik Island and stayed there for two hours. Happily snorkeling with the kids and we are quite lucky coz, the fish likes us. We bought some bread in a mineral water bottle (3 bottles for RM5) to feed the fish while snorkeling and a schooling of fish surrounded us. It's really an amazing experience. I was speechless. You should witness this moment with your own eyes.
The cutest lifeguard
So after 2 hrs, we're ready to get on the boat again for a ride to Manukan Island. Both Island are under Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. My kids really enjoy the snorkeling bit.. they look so tanned b'coz mom insist not to buy the sunblock. I got a full tube back home. so why waste... pitty them.
Crystal clear ocean
We left Manukan Island at about 2.00pm. The kids were so exhausted ...
To be continued ..... Day Trip to Kinabalu Park, Poring Hot Spring etc
