→ Now Lost

Now Lost is a conceptual travel journal that documents the strange and lesser known fascinations found in Kota Kinabalu a.k.a. KK in Sabah, east of Malaysia. The region is widely known for its beautiful natural landscape; but there appears to be something else, hidden in between the streets, that contradicts its reputation. Perhaps the soul of Kota Kinabalu lies within itself and not what surrounds it.

The way I had seen Kota Kinabalu offers a different perspective on numerous situations that may or may not be recognisable. I was eager to pursue its city’s streets and laneways to investigate whatever else that seems more strange than meets the eye. It was captivating to explore the details of Kota Kinabalu through the clues that are abstruse and concealed within itself. These urban clues were vitally significant to my travels, in which they suggested the routes to the unexpected and the unfamiliar.

Within this case file is a collection of photographic evidence in an urban investigation that surveys a fascinating detail of Kota Kinabalu where its inner treasure is awaiting to be discovered in between.
