“We are late!”
“But it’s okay we still can catch the best part!”
We were quicken our steps toward to the water front of Kota Kinabalu(or KK, like everyone calls it). I’ve noticed that sun was slowly going down but I didn’t get what was ‘the best part’ yet.
There were Noel and Shrik, we said hi, shake hands and sat down on a fence. Shortly after while drinking mango juice from a lady at a local market (which was super delicious), I immediately understood what ‘the best part’ meant. This sunset, that was probably the best sunset I’ve ever seen-unexpectedly. I felt so stupid to didn’t bring my good camera, but document the moment was not my primary concern at the moment. Colour was constantly changing, clouds were making various shapes from a cruise ship to a puppy to a vicious pirate at some point. It felt like watching a short film with an enormous screen. I could capture the gorgeous sunset reflecting from my sunset buddies eyes and their faces.
Amazingly this wasn’t a very special moment for Borneo. This is just one of their many sunset that this amazing. Before dinner, grab a tea or two, walk down to a sunset point and enjoy sunset. That is pretty much a routine for people in Borneo. This felt too good to be true.
This is ‘Borneo sunset’.
I can’t help myself to have a big happy smile.
