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;

Ok, it was hot last week -- we knew that going in, prepared for it, and made it through until the weekend of R&R. Now, it's really freakin' hot. Smokin' hot, disgusting hot, and we're melting. Worked hard today, first cleaning orangutan cages and feeding them, and Haley doing the same thing for the Sun Bears. Not too bad there, as we were in the covered areas. Afternoon was in the exposed sun & heat, moving large rusty steel grates ...
... I'm clueless with nothing looking familiar the more I walk.
I stop by at an outdoor food stand, and look for the most likely person to understand this clueless white guy, and strike out on first one. Then I ask a girl who doesn't know Ranee Hotel, but swiftly Googles it up on her phone, grabs her friends and away we go. So, 3 girls all trying to follow the google map, speaking in Malay and a little english, and driving ...
... But also the island of the Dengue mosquitoes and Malaria! We're staying here for one week and are going into the jungle before we're going back to Kuala Lumpur. Sometimes the life of being a backpacker is so hard. It's so tiring that we decided not to do anything today. Of course it's vacation but we are so busy from early in the morning till late at night that you need to charge yourself so now and then. New pictures are coming soon! Bye ...
... Our time culminated in laksa and 3 jugs of "teh si peng" (3-layer tea) at Green Heights!
6 May: Today I tried the iced "kantong" along Carpenter Street while reminiscing about my childhood days decades ago! Butter and chocolate "kueh lapis" was a must (for Dad) as well as the famous crunchy fish ball soup!
17 May: Had the best "salted-egg crabs" at Ling Loong restaurant. ...Thinking about it ...
... to do as you are visiting a new exciting place. For example would you expect to pet a wild animal at home? No it would be seen as too dangerous. Even the zoo keepers don't enter a lions cage at zoos. So why are you able to do it abroad? What has happened to make the animals willing for humans to touch them? It is thought that many animals are put either through some kind of torture (elephants and 'the crush') google it if you have the stomach :/. It ...
