Breathless Weekend...

'the red rose whispers of passion, and the white rose breathes of love,
o, the red rose is a falcon, and the white rose is a dove'
John Boyle O'Reilly

I had a nice yet memorable journey to the Kinabalu National Park last weekend. Driving my 'cutie' all the way to the Mesilau Nature Resort took us almost 2.5hrs to get there. No, we were not about to climb the summit of Borneo!! (as the Mesilau Trail is an alternative trail to climb Mount Kinabalu). We were supposed to spend our holiday at the Crocker Range Lodge (for the first time)! Mmm... Our first (and last I guess???) experience getting to the Crocker Range Lodge was unfriendly, though. Many parts of the Mesilau were really really steep, till momma couldn't just get through it. We changed our plan. Instead of staying at the Crocker Range Lodge, we stayed at the Hill Lodge inside the National Park.

We did enjoy ourselves along side the vistas of Mount Kinabalu there, although we were really tired being on the road for hours! And the best thing about this journey is that the bonds that connect us as a family that would be thoughful till the end of our lives.
