Places to Travel: The Mulu World Heritage park! Its located in Sarawak, Malaysia on the Island of Borneo. It is home to a ridiculously diversified amount of Flora and Fauna and impressive limestone features such as cliffs and caves. Not only that, You’ll get to meet so many amazing people to exchange stories with.
For any adrenaline junkie*, this is definitely Shangrila. You can choose and not limited to:
1. Rock Climbing or Free Hand Rock climbing
2. Adventure caving or Adventure Caving with Rock climbing
3. Climbing mountain summits that has default Rock climbing
Yeah, Lots of Rock related activity and they also have the usual trekking in the rainforest, swimming in the river and cold showers! The best part about getting to Mulu is that you can get there by walking (2 days), boat from miri (8hrs) or just the usual flying (they use retro propeller planes for it!)
*Disclaimer: If you are a type of adventurer who needs to update their social media, this would be a bitter sweet hell. I would suggest that you save some pictures of websites you frequent so that you would not go into withdrawal when you need it the most…..in the toilet
Animalicious: A Pitcher plant that has evolved to be a toilet!
Pitcher Plants are kinda like trademark plants of borneo aside from that big flower that smells really bad (the rafflesia). So here i present to you, nepethes lowii, a pitcher plant that serves as a toilet. It digests the important poo and uses the nitrogen for survival in places where there are lack of nutrients in the soil. Interestingly enough, there is another species of pitcher plant that eats bat guano and in exchange, it provides it shelter. Some Ethic people of borneo would fill pitcher plants with rice and cook it together with the digestive fluid for a nice meal. Its always interesting to find what is at the bottom.
