Weekend with Mr. Croc's

Last weekend, I managed to spend a quality time with family to go 'jalan-jalan' and sightseeing. We decided to go to Crocodiles Farm in Jalan Tuaran in late afternoon. It is about 45minutes drive from Kota Kinabalu to the place.


Before that, we stopped by to have some light refreshment along the Jalan Salut to have a famous Lokan Bakar (Roasted Clam) at the well known stalls along Jalan Sulaman/Salut approx. 30 minute drives from town. We had it with some coconut pudding and special sauce which is homemade mixed with sesame oil, lemongrass, lime, black sauce, vinegar and some which I’m not even know..lol


Established in year 2005, crocodile farm is the largest farm in Sabah which located at Sulaman Highway, Tuaran Northern part of Kota Kinabalu accommodates more than 1,000 crocodiles with different species and sizes. In here we can see and gain a knowledge on how the captive crocodiles breeding and farming. Their reputation in producing superior quality raw skins and meat has become known internationally.


Tired with long journey to reach here but happy once 'played' with Mr. Croc.. hehehe
