it's late night.. and i went out to yumcha with a friend. very close friend Yapp.
heavy rain.. won't stop us of course. damn long time didn't meet up with him. we changed place after a while due to the rain getting bigger.. better move to somewhere indoor.
for the old friend sake. we take a photo to keep.
he introduced a beer that i never see before the "Oranjeboom" beer.. he called it Orang Jepun ( Japanese ).
middle of the conversation... the thunderstorm didn't stop.. but strikes harder and louder each time.. and suddenly.. there is no more electricity ..
a while later... i noticed.... the road we came from just now.. had converted into a River... omg... can you imagine how heavy is there rain right now? half of the tire gone.
and this is the advantage of driving 4x4 car..
few hours later, about 3am.. the rain stop.. and the flash flood also faded.. leaving the road look like a sea surface.. mud and sand everywhere..
oh look, there is a log being carried to the middle of the road. haha, didn't see that coming
my dad brought us to Labuk Bay. never been to this place when i stay in sandakan.
this is a Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary. yupes, we come here for monkeys
what's Proboscis Monkey you ask? this is the Proboscis Monkey.
and there is a lot more monkeys around.. most important. they are superb friendly..
how friendly? i believe the picture describe it all. they doesn't afraid at all
and when one monkey come near you.. the rest will just follow...
it's not attacking this guys, this just just trying to take a photo of the monkey
and i can get a very near shot of the monkey..

and this is where we enjoy watching the monkey from.

unfortunately.. weather doesn't seem good today. it's raining. but we got ourself covered and continue .
we're on the bridge now.
the only thing to hold u up is the Ladder, piece of wood and Net.yes.. NET. and this is how high you're in.
The suspension cables are hung between emergent dipterocarp and mengaris trees at 15-25m up the trunks
That's my dad on the tree top hanging bridge.

be careful.. it's kinda high up here.
and it join from 1 tree to another tree.
