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;

Got a leaflet handed to us today, will try and attach a picture of it, but it appears to be offering us some form of torture from the Victorian age!! What sort of person pays 28 Ringgets to have a tube shoved up their nose? Needless to say that we wont be taking them up on their offer and will spend our Ringgets on a cold beer instead, which will go down very well in this heat.

... shops, it was as confusing as the last one! This one wasn't as big, so in a way it was less confusing, but the way it was set out didn't help. We were looking for one shop in particular that was a DVD and game shop. We came across it and guess what? Closed for renovations! Today really isn't our day. We headed to the second part of the mall across the street, where yet again almost the whole centre was closed apart from one or two cafes. To the taxi rank!

... parents generation, their grandparents and their great grandparents. Obviously times change and conditions of living and lifestyle improve but there really is an air of a city that is content lulling in a state that could of been observed 150 years ago. Many Borneo people are predominantly Chinese and Malay and are doing the jobs that their parents did, creating and selling arts and crafts for instance. Many times George and I have walked down the ...
... right on the boardwalk as I was going to my cabin one time and got a close up photo of him. He walked right past me on his side of the walk and didn't try to steal from me or anything!
I am an early riser. So, the next morning I was up by daylight with the intention of getting into the jungle while the wild-life was still active.
While I enjoy trekking with others, I also enjoy the solitude of trekking alone. This morning, in the early hours ...
