Ford 4x4 Sabah Quest Flag Off

I had heard many people said there is so much fun going to Sabah using 4x4 car there and explore the places there. I had follow one of my friend's Ninja Turtle go KK once few years ago but is not really feel like off road there.. more like a road trip to KK. 
But this time I have another new experience of follow the Brunei Ford kaki travel 1700km make a big round circle across the Sabah! This is a awesome 5 days 4 nights trip you must be psychical tough and also the car have to tough too!
During the day one we from Brunei-Tenom-Keningau-Maliau Basin and reach Tawau took 16 hours! When check in the hotel already 9pm... is very tired but Fun. I see a lot of thing that my daily life I don't see one! There is one part I like is when we going up the Bukit Layang-Layang. The road look like is a straight and flat road but the car 3rd gear also cannot go!! Then I look back the rear window I realize that we are up hill like the Subok hill there!

This trip is organize by the Premier Automobiles Sdn. Bhd. I can say is more like a family trip to Sabah that's is why you see got from kids 3 years old to old grandpa grandma, we have about 16 ford cars and 50plus people in the group. Everything is smooth and steady... all safe no car rosak or anyone get hurt there! Only my butt is sakit sit on the car for 16 hours during the 1st day and at night I notice I have a big nipple on my ass!!! lol

We spent 2 night at Tawau there, one night at Sandakan and one night at KK. Went to many palaces but my favorite place is the Ranau there... God the place really beautiful lah.. I didn't know it was so awesome there. I had heard people say the place is nice but from photo I cannot see how nice until I see by my own eyes it's really awesome and beautiful. After we came down and reach KK I straight ask to bring me to buy a GPS (I got the Papago) for ready my next trip coz I want to bring my wife and kids to come here next time!

Indeed this is a tried trip but fun! I salute my new friend Norsamri Hj Johari he can tahan drive not need to change driver! Oh..... and also salute to the number 3 car the Haji too, really strong lah him he is the oldest driver in the group also no change driver from day one to Tawau and back to Brunei!!
Nice to meet you all and hope to join you guys again next time!
