The Flowers And Faunas At Kinabalu Pine Resort, Kundasang, Sabah !!!



Kundasang, a marvellous place to be while you are in Sabah.

I was very fascinated with the flowers and faunas found in this resort high up on a mountain with 5,00 feet above sea level.

The Chairman of the Kinabalu Pine Resort took me for a day to rest after the swiftlet talk session in Kota Kinabalu.

He seem to be very proud of this 64 rooms chalet. It was him who came out with the design of the complex. By the way he is an architect with lots of building in KK under his wing.

I felt so honoured to be given the opportunity to be with him at the resort and a few favorite places that he showed to me.

The best was those Pine trees. They were planted by him and there were at least 10 different types. When they were planted, they were not more then 10 inches tall, according the Chairman.

Now these pines are 30 feet to 50 feet high. All looks fresh and big in size.

Beside those Pine trees I was given a tour to look at the many verieties of colorful flowers plus a wild Orchids garden.

Some of those orchids need special permission to have them planted in your yard.

He was also very proud to have provided jobs to the local surrounding his resort. Most of these young kids, after college, will be automatically recruited and trained to be a Resort Trainees. Beside the Resort they will also be given the opportunities to be stationed at a number of five stars hotels in KK.

The idea was to provide adequate training and once they are experienced enough the company will released them to fill those vacancies in the state or other countries. Not less then 200 trainees were enrolled and released since the formation.

What a Noble way of helping the locals.

Have a look at all these photos that I manage to catch.....
