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;

... bag to let it acclimatize, but that doesn't really work when you need to actually use the camera, not leave it in the bag for hours. So, I got to Semenggoh and my camera went all foggy again. My solution was to take the protective lens off entirely (don't like doing that) so that I only had one lens surface not three to try to fix. That and extra cleaning to manage the fog, and it was mostly good to go. Manageable, but not ideal. Still, there are some really good shots here. Hope you like ...
Woken up at about 4.40 am with lots of people laughter from next room. Oh well had to be up at 5 am anyway! Driver took us at 6 to the bus station. It is busy at that time. Lots of people carrying their groceries from the local market I assume. People clearly get up early as the roads were busy too. I think that the bus station is in it's infancy as it is a big concrete building that appears to be making way for shops around the edges. The bus drivers were ...
... of patrons were adorned with generous amounts of inflatables. Bardy drove the other kids mad when he interrupted the rat race with his agonisingly slow step-climbing and plucking up of courage to slide - many of the slightly older kids just flowed around and over him. The whole resort was crawling with families. Most were Malaysian as (fortuitously) it was the start of the school holidays. The throngs of children everywhere did rather ...
... to have a parting of the ways with the contents of my stomach. Not a high point. By the end of the evening ('bout 2am NZ time) I was starting to feel better.
Was a real shame as the dinner and show by the http://www.scv.com.my/main.asp (only go to the link if you're interested) Sarawak Cultural Village was fantastic. We're going next week I think so will have a rerun.
There are quite a few Dave's here ...
... of birds and fish. To round off our day of local culture we bought ourselves a layer cake (or ‘Kek Lapis’), this is a traditional cake made for celebrations and takes many hours to prepare, there must be at least 2 colours (some had more than 10!!) and each layer is individually made and cooled before piling the next one on, all in all there are about 12 thin layers of cake. The best bit about buying a Kek Lapis was that the seller had a Tupperware box ...
