My Trip To Tawau

I took a trip back to Tawau, few days before this Chinese New Year. Tawau is a town, that I being inspire with toy car collecting hobby. It happen back in 1980, one of my first cousin who show me his toy car collection in his wooden case. He has a lot of cars includes of Hot Wheel, Majorette, Matchbox and Corgi too.
I did when to visit his parents house to check out, is there any left over cars around there. But according my cousin brother, his mum already give it away to someone decades ago.

Anyway here are some picture I took, while I was passing through the great Mt. Kinabalu at centre of Sabah. The black & white picture of Mt. Kinabalu was taken from my cousin old photo album house. I believe that it was taken about 50 years ago on Mt. Kinabalu.

Before the end of my Tawau trip. Uncle Wilson (my mums brother) gave me this sets of cars, which he had keeping it since 1980. It was the same year, which I was inspire by other cousin brother back then.

The set of car is mostly by Majorette(made in France) and a car by Corgi(made in Great Britain). I was soooo... happy when I saw this classic cars collection. All this cars with be repost in my blog later after I get back to KL. So please be patient ya.

Special Thanks to Uncle Wilson and family, for this cars.
