KOTA KINABALU: A picture of a woman walking in just her bikini bottom and a long-sleeved pink T-shirt close to the Asia City complex in Kota Kinabalu (KK) has set tongues wagging.
Many have been asking if the woman, believed to be a foreigner, had done so because of the hot weather in Sabah in the past few weeks, as temperatures hit an average of 34 to 35 Celsius degrees each day.
People have been sharing photos of the woman on WhatsApp, with many men commenting that her “hotness” were forcing them to order another glass of iced drinks to “cool down”.
One asked “Is Sabah really that hot? I have to order another iced coffee after seeing her walk past”.
Another jokingly responded by saying “It’s a trend to walk in panties under the hot sun”.
The woman was captured in the photos walking with another man.
It is unknown if anyone has lodged any reports on her attire.
Attempts are being made to contact Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment minister Christina Liew to comment on the matter.
Incidences of tourists in Sabah dressed “inappropriately” and acting with lack of “sensitivity” to Malaysian “culture” have been reported numerous times.
