The beauty of having a best friend or “bestie”, as a lifelong pal or bosom friend who stands by us through thick and thin, makes every moment more meaningful in our life. If you want to surprise them with a gift to show your love and appreciation, what should you get and where?

If your bestie loves reading, especially about history and anything related to Sabah, books could be the perfect gift! Why books, you ask? Gifting books is a thoughtful gesture that shows our appreciation for their interests and growth. Moreover, books also have the power to inspire, educate, and entertain, making them a meaningful and lasting gift.


Interest your bestie with tastes in adventures, tales and history. Here we picked 3 Books  namely: Blood Brothers, Land Below The Wind, White Man Returns. These books are an excellent choice for bookworms eager to know a bit of interesting history about Sabah. In fact, all these stories are based on true events!
