Night Lights in Kota Kinabalu(KK)

When the night falls, KK springs into a life of its own. The kaleidoscope of lights & colours just before the nightfall gives rise to a sense of  wonderment about the splendour of nature blended in with man-made colours of light. The night vista in KK bowls one over about the beauty of KK, which one often overlooks in the hustle bustle of city life.

KK has also got some notable distinctions in quirky architectural edifice- such as that of  Wisma Intiutama. The building is shaped in a triangular fashion and at one end of the building it tapers off to a narrow point. You often wonder who the poor bugger that is assigned an office at that minuscule corner of the building. He must have been sent to Timbuktu for insubordination.

 When it comes to naming a business, KK is also not far behind in the championship league of quirky name. We have a cineplex called Growball inside the Centre Point Shpping Complex. How the name was arrived at one would never know.  I hope it is not meant to be rude to the men who love to take their loved-ones for a hanky-panky night out at the Growball Cinemax.

And the Centre Point Shopping Complex looks quite majestic when the night comes. In the night setting it looks magnificent, but in the daylight it is just a square box with no aesthetic architectural beauty to it. Though a lot of my friends would think otherwise.

This has been a night of enlightenment. KK, My Kind of Town.
