KOTA KINABALU -As part of the week-long expedition I joined here, organized by my friend Deeno Lot of the Orang Gunung Kuala Lumpur (OGKL), we climbed Mt. Nambuyukong, a prominent mountain within the Kinabalu Park, located in Substation Serinsim in Kota Marudu, north of Kota Kinabalu. The plan was to do a dayhike this mountain as a sidetrip in a Mt. Tambuyukon major climb – Tambuyukon is the third highest mountain in Malaysia, next only to Gunung Kinabalu and Gunung Trusmadi.
The late Zaidi Bidin, being my companion during the previous day, and being a very fluent English speaker, was assigned to be my buddy (and interpreter) during the climb
