What’s in your Suitcase?: Conquering Mt. Kinabalu


Tell us about yourself:

I am Cotz, PIO cum-writer for a local agency in Legazpi, freelance ghostwriter and blogger. I recently moved back to my home province after living in Metro Manila. I take advantage of promo fares, leave credits and long weekends to travel. This summer I plan on traveling/exploring more locally with my 6-year old son, who’s soon to live with me exclusively.

Where are you headed?: 

Kota Kinabalu, Sabah Malaysia to conquer the highest mountain in SEA: Mt. Kinabalu. I will be meeting my partner there and we’ll be celebrating our 1st anniversary at the summit 🙂

  1. Haloo Pinay Traveller!

    Thanks for featuring my pack! We successfully made it to the summit. In my obsession to limit my baggage, my clothing gears were too flimsy for the uber-cold temperature at the top!
