Borneo 1945 Museum Kopitiam @ KK

It was a weekend morning and I was alone looking for some very simple food before badminton game, near Istana Kota Kinabalu, official residence of our YDN. The nearest area I could think of was the Australian Place and I remember that the Borneo 1945 Museum Kopitiam do serves good breakfast & lunch. I just need a piece of bread and coffee anyway...

Just a brief here, Borneo 1945 Museum Kopitiam was only in the business since merely 10 years ago, what make this place so special is that the building itself. Back in 1945, this area was the camp site of the Alliance (Australian, NZ, British and some locals) before the Japanese destroyed everything. Post-war, exactly where this cafe stood now the first concrete building was erected. This building initially served as a printing press (and you still can see this area still got many priniting house!) before adopted to other functions, and finally a backpackers and kopitiam.

Very simple breakfast with half-boiled egg and toast, and a cup of coffee

They rent bicycle

Vintage radio and stuff....

Lots of historical stories to be shared on the wall, as this is a museum cafe

Commercialize the old place...Is this the best way to preserve historical building (and their stories?)
