My favourite plants - Orchids and Nepenthes (pitcher plants). One of the orchid (below, center) look like human, wearing big hat and yellow bow-tie. On its left is the famous Slipper Orchid. I had to position the camera underneath the flower (below, right) because the flower look like it has been turned upside-down (see above small pic, top left).

Photos from Sepilok
My hubby supposed to have a meeting in Sandakan on the 17th but due to a no-need-to-be-mentioned reasons, he don't need to attend the meeting. But the flights already booked. Hubby said his work is stressful and he really need a break. So we took this chance to go for holiday. At the same time, he could submit the report that he prepared earlier to the Project Manager. I had a fever while we were there but lucklily, it's under control with the help of 1000mg Paracitamol everytime I start to feel unwell. I don't want my hubby to end up looking after a sick wife during his holiday. Hehe.
We only manage to visit the Rainforest Research Centre and the Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre at Sepilok, because our hotel is quite far from the city (budget hotel, hehe) and buses are the only mean of transportation (we don't want to take the cab, we afraid it would be very expensive as the oil price had increased).
I don't really like monkeys because I had witnessed my sister been attacked by my uncle's pet when I was 7, or 8. However, I still think they're cute though. Look at the pictures, these monkeys really knows how to pose for the camera. I feel entertained watching their behaviour (and forgot my fever, hehe). I have to admit that I had a good time at Sepilok, because of the monkeys.
Look at the baby (pic: below, right). I feel like I want to hold it...but I dare not trying to get closer to them, remember, looking harmless doesn't mean they can be trusted.
