So, my wife and I are a bit unique in that we’ve had three weddings. We were married in Nassau, and in Malaysia twice for two different sides of my wife’s family.
That may sound stressful, and believe me, it was. But at the same time it presented me with the opportunity to meet her family and see a part of world that most people never get to see (much less even think about).
Sabah, Borneo is a bit of a hidden gem, at least to Americans. It’s far away and not too easy to get to (we had to switch planes four times and the journey took two days). But once there, I had the most amazing time, seeing lots of beautiful jungle, meeting many friendly and interesting people, and eating loads of delicious food, most of which you can’t find anywhere else in the world. I often tell my wife that Malaysian food could be the next big thing in the States, if only people here knew about it! Sabah is a seafood lover’s paradise and everything is much fresher and cheaper than you would find here.
We took lots of pictures and made lots of memories, to the point where it’d take too much time to share it all. So, I’ve selected a few pictures that might give you something of a picture of what it’s like.
Besides Sabah, we also visited Bali and Singapore, and it feels like we only scratched the surface of what this side of the world has to offer.
Below is a small sampling of the food we tried. Aside from the McDonald’s Prosperity Burger (I have to try the local McDonald’s in every country I visit), it was all indescribably good!
