The National Park-A-Thon Begins

The first national park we decided to check out for our ten day Sarawak NP Extravaganza was Kubah, home of palms and frogs apparently, which left us in no doubt on what to expect. We figured we might as well throw ourselves right into a trail or two as soon as we got to there, [...]

What’s Cooking In Kuching?

I fucking hate cooking and cooking hates me. We used to have this death-oven that served as the gateway to hell itself if the jacket potatoes I tried cooking to Google's specification are anything to go by. I ended up with a flat full of smoke and two black cannonballs instead of two perfectly baked [...]

Leech-Free Strolling At Similajau

Similajau is a nice place to just chill the fuck out. Yes, there's a hiking trail, there's always a hiking trail, but the accommodation is a very short shuffle to the beach where you can watch the sunset for as long as you can stand the sandflies. Fucking sandflies. I hate them. As if sand [...]
