Before we leave Taman Mawar, Sandakan eith Fred family
Wishing Fred's kid, we cramped ourself into the Kelisa and moved out from Taman Mawar at about 11.35am. Fred's a careful driver and discipline too. Safe journey to the airport, alhamdulillah. We had a short refreshment at the airport cafe as we waited for the boarding call.

Dark cloud before leaving Sandakan Airport
The flight was schedule at 225pm and again delayed for 300pm, as it's drizzling we just stayed inside the boarding room. The announcement was made that we had to wait for the flight from Polopin, well that's the Air Asia schedule, finally we took off and reached Kota Kinabalu airport by 400pm.
Another blunder at KK airport, the monitor at one end showed nothing but the other end showed the schedule; I went to asked and was told to enter the boarding room and again Maxis 'berok-beng' stinks. We performed jama' prayers at 615pm as the flight to KL was re-scheduled to 700pm. Good thing that it was rescheduled, and by 930am we reached LCCT and again took the Skybus.
Got this from our travel-agent before I forget. Again it drizzled throughtout the journey back to KL and my elders came to picked us at KL Central and reached home safely (alhamdulillah) at about 11.30pm.
Things for sure comes with:
i) met Tuan Sadi and Tuan Fred after MIA for 27 years;

iii) able to re-foster and strengthened relationships with friends;

viii) missed friends and family events plus occasions and etc ..
