As i told you guys in my post yesterday. It was very difficult for me to get wild animals and plants pictures lately. By the way, during my trip early this week, i tried to search for something interesting to captured by my digital camera. Well, i am not get paid that much now so, no DSLR or any other high tech camera. Even i have one i don't think i know how to use them. Ops..i am lazy on reading manuals. Any manuals. I need somebody to teach me, hands on. I will be better. Hahaha....

I get this ferns picture. It is alive and wild. So i think i discover wild plants but what is the species? Sorry....not me to give an answer. I leave it blank. If wanna know you guys have to find botanist. Okay, next what did i found?

Ewww....i found unliving things but happen to be drop by living animal. I have a friend that told me, this is the most precious treasure for a mammalogist. I think he is right because there are so much information we can get from this droppings. But not so precious if you are not a mammalogist. Ouch!!

At last i found a cricket. A living wild animal but only a tiny little cricket. Okayla. It was difficult to get the nice one but i think this is also good already. Lucky this cricket is very sporting. Not move at all until I've done with it. 

Okay guys. That is all about my recent discovery. In the plantation areas not really forest though. But it was fun and interesting to be there.

Sabah Against Relocating Orang Utan

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah is not keen to relocate any orang utan to Peninsular Malaysia for eco-tourism purposes.

State Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said not only is it dangerous to remove the sensitive primates from their natural habitat but the local people were against such a move to send the state’s icon away.

He said this when commenting on a statement by Deputy Tourism Minister Datuk James Dawos Mamit, who said they would obtain orang utan from Sabah and Sarawak to set up an eco-tourism attraction similar to the Sepilok orang utan sanctuary in Sandakan and the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre in Kuching.

Mamit had told reporters in Kuching on Sunday that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had requested for some orang utan to be sent to Peninsular Malaysia to promote eco-tourism.

Masidi said yesterday orang utan were not like some other animals that could be easily relocated from their habitat. He said any relocation could be traumatising enough to cause their death.

He said relocating an orang utan involved a lot of technicalities and planning.

“The orang utan should stay where they are.

Those who want to see orang utan will have to come to Sabah to see them,” Masidi said adding that there had been no official request made to the state government for the primate.

I Am Back Safe & Sound

Alright....Came back from Murut's village on Thursday afternoon. So much fun and interesting discovery during my visit. I received a few advice, comments and ideas of surviving in Murut's village or area. By the way, i am still alive my family and friends. Thanks for your prayers and of course my Lord Jesus Christ for always walk with me each and every day in my life.

What did i do to survive in kampong? Especially kampong of people that i am not familiar with. Difference in races, customs, beliefs and traditions. The main thing that my mum always remind me if met new people was "Be humble and down to earth". Never shows and or criticize them especially the way of their life. Accept them for what and who they are, so they will do the same to you. This is the only thing that can make me survive with these people (I do pray so that things will be alright throughout my visit).

Aha...this is my picture with the people that i met. They smile isn't they? Welcoming me, maybe... (^_^)
