October 22, after the awards day we have to travel back to the city of Kinabalu by the bus designated to all the runners. It's now time to go back to our Lavender Lodge, had a feast dinner at the seafood restaurant right across where we stayed. Despite the rate, I decided to just treat myself a good meal having my favorite food.
Our last day in the city starts with a recovery run along the coast line of Kinabalu up to the Jessel Point and some yoga stretching. On our way back to the lodge, we meet Sudip and his teammate Upendra, ofcourse we had another picture taken with the Nepalese stars.
Went back to our lodge, had breakfast and pack our things. I go with Jules to look for her favorite cookie which is not available on the nearby store, we did a long walk but its ok, this will be part of the recovery walk. On our way back we pass by the lodge of the Singapore runners, again we had our picture taken.
Lunch time the Sabah Tourism Board treat the Philippine team to at sumptuous lunch on a nearby chinese restaurant. A yummy lunch for all of us. After which I accompany Helen to make a last minute buy the wet market.
At around 4pm we said our last good bye to Ate Nora, the lady on Lavender Lodge. We head to the airport for our trip back to the Philippines.
