Me and Sandakan

I used to live in a house, where the snake always craw in front of the house, where orchids just grow wildly in the garden, where those big red ants always give painful bites, where I always enjoy those 'rambutans' and 'durians' (local fruits) from the orchard...

I won't forget the moment when I was stung by a bee waiting patiently on my bicycle's handle bar. I had to use urine to clean my palm.

The chicken's eye is always flipping so fast that you normally do not notice it.

I never know that pitcher plants are so famous until I browsed through some 'visit Sabah' websites, as I always see them during my weekend's jog up the hill. Pitcher plants trap flies and ants, good though, as flies are so annoying.

If you are lucky, you may find some big iguana in the middle of the road. Some other times, it wanders around in my school's compound.

oh, ya, remember to leave the single elephant that blocks the road alone, as elephant traveling alone is said to be abandoned by the herd and it has bad temper.

Anyway, I'm currently studying in UK university, it's winter now. I really miss the sun back home...
