The focus is on Lahad Datu

It is worrisome thing to happen to Sabah.  Since the intruders landed on Lahad Datu on 9 February 2013, the focus has been on Lahad Datu, the eastern town of Sabah.  The Sultanate of Sulu is once again claiming for their right over the eastern part of Sabah.  As a Sabahan, I don't know much of the history of North Borneo (Now Sabah), till in the recent days I have been searching the internet for the basis of their claim.  

We hope this can be settled with no further bloodshed.  Though we are at the west coast of Sabah, we need to follow the updates of what's happening and put on high alert.  After this morning gun fires and curfew at Lahad Datu town in the afternoon, it would be wise to stock up some food stuff which we just did our shopping this evening.

Here is an update of what's happening at the time of this post.  This is another update.  Hope this will over soon.
