Kota Kinabalu: Post Office

During the last day of our trip to Kota Kinabalu, our friends wanted to go to the Post Office to drop their post cards.  They believed that it was lucky to send yourself a post card from the country you visited to your home address.  They wrote themselves a letter or short message, which can also be kept as souvenir for the future.

The post office in Kota Kinabalu was in the ground floor of the building.  Comparing it to the post office here in the Philippines, this is way better.  The inside is air-conditioned and clean, unlike in the Philippines, or at least to the Makati Post Office, since that is the only post office in Philippines that I have gone to.  There were also seats provided for the customers while waiting.

Diosdado Macapagal International Airport

It was our first time ever to ride our way down to Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) for our flight out, which was located in Clark Pampanga.  It was indeed very far than the NAIA Manila Airport, because we were from the Ortigas Area.  We decided to book our flight going to Kota Kinabalu with AirAsia, which didn't have flights offered in NAIA, because of the promo price of the airfare. 

The travel time from Ortigas to Trinoma was around 30 minutes at that time because the traffic was moderately fast.  We met our friends in Trinoma where we rode to DMIA together.  The travel time from Trinoma to the airport was around 1 hour and 30 minutes.  The traffic was also good, then when you get to NLEX, it will be smooth sailing until you reach DMIA.
