It has been one month since I started my journey to Sabah. Chinese has a proverb that say something like this..
Reading thousands of books is unmatchable to walking thousand miles of roads
True that, every journey provides wonderful experience and great memories, regardless of overseas or in Malaysia.
[Sabah trip, 31-Mar-2006] We continued our journey to Klias Wetland after our joyous Padas white water rafting. Klias Wetland is famous worldwide for its endangered species of proboscis monkeys.
We arrived at our resort almost evening and hopped on a motorboat where it took us into the mangroves swamp in search of the monkey famous for its big nose.
It’s not easy to spot the proboscis monkeys, and not easy to see it clearly even with a binocular. YM used her 40x zoom camera to took the photo (left), which still required a bit of editing, and that’s as good as it gets.
[Sabah trip, 31-Mar-2006] Early morning, we boarded on an old-style train at Beaufort that carried everything from passengers to chickens, vege, goods and even cars. Our destination? Padas white water rafting.
[Sabah trip, 30-Mar-2006] On our way back from Poring Hot Spring to Kota Kinabalu, we visited Kundasang War Memorial, which was dedicated to men and women from Australia, British, New Zealand and Malaysia, who took part in several military campaigns in Borneo during WW2.
