Kota Kinabalu Wet Market, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysian Borneo.

To market, to market! Take me to the market; that's where I like to get my feet wet (related: it's a terrible idea to wear flip flops to the market).

Last week I waxed poetic on my love for bamboo basket makerel in Bangkok. I don't know what sort of fish this is, but I love it just the same.

Kota Kinabalu isn't exactly the Borneo of my imagination; it's really just a sleepy midsized South East Asian town, and not the wild, rugged jungle backwater I was hoping it would be. To get my fill of wild in KK, I went hunting through the open air market. I'm posting one of the tamer photos from this expedition - for the sake of your stomachs. Maybe I'll get wilder on the next cycle through.
