Day 2 - A trip from Kota Kinabalu to Ranau

The second day of our trip was from Kota Kinabalu to some places at area of Mount Kinabalu and ended at Ranau. I will tell you later where exactly we went as you go along reading my story. On the way to to the highland, we passed Tamparuli, Tuaran and then to Ranau. It will take you 3 hours drive from KK town to Ranau if the weather is good. It was about 131 km to go to Ranau. It was a challenge for me driving to Ranau. At first place I had no plan at all going to Ranau. It was my cousin who proposed us to go there to visit some interesting places and we would be guided by our relatives Zainal and Zainab in KK. We met my cousin with his family at Grand hotel. They were on holiday for 3 days too. Since we would be guided to that place so we decided to join him to go to Ranau. We left the hotel at 9.30 am.

Before we started our journey to Ranau, We took some photos of ours outside the Grand Hotel.

Umme was the one who shot us.
nice view

up the hill

Guess what ..after about an hour traveling....whoops ....:( It was not my tyre that's flatten.. I need to stop because my car temperature was higher when it went up the hill...

Luckily Zainal is good in car mechanic. My car needed to be filled with water. Alhamdulillah we found water source drifted from the mountain and we filled bottles with it.

Then we continued our journey and that time I had to monitor the temperature everytime went up the hill. I stopped for a while when my car temperature reached before the maximum highest point. I think because my car has auto gear so its capability to go up the hill was not good enough compare to car with manual gear. This is learned lesson for me....
After 3 hours traveling.....the passengers....tertidur keletihan

The weather here was fine and windy
Next destination was to a place in Ranau......
