Borneo was not on my original route.  Rave reviews, budget airlines, Orangatangs, an island called Sipadan and 2 weeks to spare until my flight out of Singers convinced me to add it to my list. 

You might have noticed that I have been doing a bit of diving on my travels!  Well, everywhere I went people were raving about a place called Sipadan, off the coast of Borneo.  I had never heard of it but quickly discovered that it was one of the best dive sites in the world. So it was to Sipadan that I headed on arrival in Malaysian Borneo.  I say Malaysian Borneo as the island is actually divided up into Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia.  I went to the top right bit.

I can't really tell you why I decided on diving with and outfit called Uncle Chang's, what I can tell you was that it was a cracking choice.  Far from luxury, the crowd more than made up for it and I had some of my most enjoyable days/nights so far thanks to peeps at 'Uncle C' .  I say that before I even get to the actual diving bit which was quite simple amazing.  For fear of boring you again I will not go on, but if you look at the photos (taken by Edwin Kuipers) and times that by 100 then you will get the idea.
