Christmas update

We spent our Christmas eve at Perkasa Hotel, Kundasang this year, with the Wong's family, it was the first outing for Crystal and Pearl to experience the cool weather at the foothill of Mount Kinabalu. Crystal was excited to be able to touch the cloud (fog) at night.
We arrived at the hotel at around 2.00pm much later than Cletus originally planned, due to diversions supermarket to get certain stuff that we forgot to pack into our luggage, to the workshop to check on the car, and stopped by Tamparuli town to have our lunch, the famous Tamparuli Mee, and to Bundu Tuhan to check on the time for the Mass.
The Hotel Lobby, now then I realised it had changed its name to Mount Kinabalu Heritage Resort & Spa, previously was Perkasa Hotel, Kundasang, luckily I took this photo, I did not realised it while I was there though. The hotel is a much better place to stay after it had been renovated.
Had our Christmas Buffet Dinner at the hotel. The pricing were very reasonable considering at Christmas Eve. There were no turkey or roasted lamb in the menu of course, but we filled up our tummies without complains.

Ring, ring, ring, Santa came around to distribute goodies to the girls.

After dinner, before leaving for church, we took a walk at the surrounding area of the hotel, there is a hanging bridge leading to the chalets, at first we thought our girls wouldn't dare to cross the bridge but we were wrong.
We attended a brief mass at the St Pius X Bundu Tuhan church, this picture was taken upon arrival at Bundu Tuhan. The last time I went there was more than 15 years ago, can not remember exactly when actually.

The view of the majestic Mt Kinabalu that we captured the next morning.
