Many couples have the intention to travel to far away places for their pre-wedding shoots and I guess it is not a surprise because there is just something magical and romantic being thousands of miles away, especially in dream location such as Paris, Venice, Rome or many others.

I was recently given a chance to shoot at a location that I must say never really crossed my mind. But after four days, I am absolutely convinced that more people should consider Sabah as a destination of choice. This is just a quick sneak peek on what I was up to during the four days in Sabah.

The above was taken at Shangri-La Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa and that is already apparently just an “ok” sunset in Kota Kinabalu. It was raining almost everyday but even then, the sunset by my KL standard is already pretty amazing. Imagine if you were there during the best of their sunset days.

But Tanjung Aru isn’t the only beach in town and if you just drive about an hour away, you get Pantai Dalit and the quiet and beautiful Shangri-La Rasa Ria Resort. This is an entirely different environment and you get a long stretch of soft, sandy beach.

And if you think that the beaches are all Sabah has to offer, then you are mistaken once again. You can move up to Kundasang which offers a majestic view of Mount Kinabalu (we couldn’t see it due to rain clouds) and you get an entirely different set of images. This is all within a 3 hour drive!

At times, it felt like we weren’t even in Malaysia! Sabah is truly awesome and I am glad to be given this opportunity to experience it myself.
