I really enjoyed the pictures, especially as we're getting cabin fever already in a cold November in Wis. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the great tour! I especially loved Cameron Highland. The boat trip looks a little hairy to me. I bet ya'll were afraid to breathe for fear of overturning!

Isn't Mulu amazing? The caves are awesome. And to plop at 3/4 star hotel right in the middle of a tropical jungle is amazing to. The boat ride isn't as scary as it looks - the waters are relatively calm and shallow. In fact, if it hadn't rained for a while and there the boat is full, the man may be "volunteered" to get out, wade in the water and push the boat past the shallower points.

The "herring bone" marks on the Ipoh trees are interesting. They represent the scourge marks where barks were removed to make the poison for the blow pipe darts' tips. (We were lucky enough to have a very knowledgeable guide with us on our trip there - he has a BSc in Botany!)

Those pitchers can be used as receptacles to cook glutinous rice in. My mom used to do that.
