My Own Private Sukau.

I was in Sukau very briefly last week.

Did I say I love the place, after my last trip in 2009? I love it even more now.

The highlight this time is our encounter with two herds of elephants during our afternoon cruise. I think this is the closest that I've been with these gentle wild creatures. The babies were so cute!




They changed their minds about getting into the river and went back to eating.

Adorable baby.

Well, that's their dung after all that fibrous meal. Elephants eat up to 150 kg of food per day.

Orang utan bridge - we call it Sydney bridge :)

A long tailed macaque on another bridge at Sg Resang.

The resident payau at Sukau B&B.

One thing I've found out and seen on this trip - the passionate people who work tirelessly to protect the wildlife. They have my utmost respect and admiration. The unsung heroes.

I hope to return to this lovely peaceful little place again one day soon.

This is me = happy :) *hearts Sukau*

Thunderbolts and Lightning. (or, I guess I'll just call it the blues)

Good morning.

It's 6:25 am in the big city and I've been wide awake for the past hour.

It rained heavily earlier and is still drizzling now so I've decided to abandon my morning run today and sleep in a bit. Or, at least that's what I thought I'd do. Could not sleep anymore so I started packing my stuff.

Today is my last day of my short trip here.

I think I am already experiencing ... some kind of 'separation anxiety'? Is that what it's called? No, maybe it's called post-vacation depression? Ah, or simply, it's just the blues. Yupp, I guess I'll just call it the blues :)

Have you ever felt this way after a vacation?

p.s. Not much to report in this trip; half work-half play.
