Stay at this resort at your own RISK. Resort Management of this establishment neglect their guest security. We had our room broken into the second day we got there. The thief took RM850 from our room between 5:15 and 6:30 while we were at the pool. We lodged a report of the incident with the hotel security who promised to investigate the matter. We found out the next day that we were not the only victim, a guest below our room lost a 1.5 carat diamond ring. She too lodge a report to the police. She told us that the hotel demanded that if she take the hotel transportation to the police station, she will have to pay them for the cost. The management, Resort Manager and Operations Director both admitted to the failure in their security and a severe breach. We were informed that someone had taken a master key and made a duplicate without authorisation. We were informed that their SOP, Standard Operating Procedure was not followed which allowed this individual the opportunity use the hotel tools to commit the crime. For their admission of their negligence, hotel management refused to bear responsibility of the whole fiasco. We reported the incident to the Borneo Post;

We have been very lucky with ...
... was my favourite Proboscis encounter however!
We checked out some of the big armed crabs again and Ange narrowly avoided 2 monkeys attacking her by gallantly cowering behind a nearby Asian male tourist, then it was back to the boat and the bus back to Kuching – amazing to think it is only an hour away from town! Dinner was back at Borneo Delight to save some pennies – plus its right next to the laundry which is perfect!

... years, from the mid-1800s until WWII, by the White Rajahs. That's a British family from Devon. James Brooke was given the city and land around Kuching from the Sultan of Brunei for defeating pirates there, and his ancestors ruled until the Japanese invasion of WWII. Over time, they expanded their territory at the expense of the Sultan. Surprisingly, the White Rajah period was a good one for Sarawak and its people, and they are remembered ...
... going to permit the climb. After staying one night at the camp we then walked back to the river and took the boat back in torrential rains go the original lodge. We spent the next day admiring the local flora and fauna in the park, and like little tomboys had lots of fun taking photos of the weird colourful insects and many species of lizard. After four nights in Mulu we left on a plane to Miri, a small transit town between Sarawak and Sabah, with our flight to Kota Kinabalu booked for the next ...
... us all. He could hoist a bag over his shoulder and walk past the people pushing theirs in a barrow and then repeatedly go back for more.
I have a few photos of lunch. I really like the buffet meals. It's pretty hot under the tent but the break is welcome, the food is interesting, and the social time is great too.
It is important to be mindful of our role as unskilled labourers here. It's easy to get frustrated at ...
