Working on

Working on a blog is hard work. Working on two blogs is even harder work (duh!) But is shaping up nicely with the content fleshing out.

My days are intertwining again and I seriously lose track. I write a post, and the next time I look up the calendar has moved on 3 days and I didn’t even know it. In the meantime I’m posting like crazy to keep add content, keep up with search engines and keep my content fresh for my readers.

1earth is obviously my person blog and I write about the little adventures that I’m having. At the moment a lot of those adventures include Ubuntu, a windows alternative that I’ve been trying out. I’ve almost not used my Windows installation at all, until today actually – Ubuntu struggles with video and graphics, but that’s a blog entry in itself.

My other adventures includes, which is a blog specifically for the promotion of Kota Kinabalu and Sabah. At the moment it’s almost exclusively Kota Kinabalu, as I haven’t had a change, or have the time, to explore the rest of Sabah yet – but that too will come.

In the meantime, on Saturday, in the course of documenting Sabah’s treasures, I visited Chi The Spa at Shangri-la’s Tanjung Aru Resort. I’ve been following the progress of that spa for more than a year already, as the spa manager is a good friend of mine. It’s been running for a good month or two, and only now did I get an opportunity to visit it.

Without going into too much details (will be doing a proper article on, the spa is stunning. Apparently it went over budget as far as time and money is concerned, but I look at it and I think it was all worth it.

It’s perched on a little peninsula within the resort and previously it was a fairly dilapidated little building which wasn’t used for what it was worth. So they tore it down and constructed this spa village which is close on heaven.

Chi The Spa as seen from the pool area at Shangri-la Tanjung AruAnyway, would have loved a treatment, but they sell at RM600 for 2 and half hours, so it’s a little beyond my budget, but apparently they do brisk business, especially in the wake of KK’s recent mini-rainy season. Here’s a picture, a little bigger than usual, to whet your appetite, but do check out the detailed review soon on
