At night, we were all invited to have dinner at Kampung Nelayan, it was a famous place in Sabah for seafood and Cultural performance. Besides having sumptuous dinner at Kampung Nelayan, we also had a chance to meet some senior IEM members from Sabah branch to exchange some opinions regarding engineering issues. All of us really enjoyed the tasty food and cultural show.

Day 2 :

We all woke up early and our pounding hearts would bring us to Pulau Manukan, one of the favourite spot for diving in Sabah. Water is crystal clear and breathtaking views really free us out from the hustle and bustle of the city. We enjoyed ourselves by having snorkelling and not to forget the Parachuting, some photos below showed that our committee really enjoyed being pulled up to the sky and down to the sea to enjoy the beauty of our nature.

Day 3 :

We bid our farewell to all the representatives and we have promised to see each other at Penang Branch for our G&S Summit 2008.
