Whenever You Call

What do you do when you miss someone, and there's NO other way to get to that person except for a 20 minutes hill -climbing to find a mobile connection - if the weather permits?

You have to walk uphill this one.
Would you do it?

Welcome to the remote jungle of Borneo.
It is where my hubbi is stationed to work for more than 3years now.

Where every phone calls is precious and there's no way returning THAT call if you've missed iT.

Bored living in the city?

Fancy a four hours boat ride via the Kinabatangan river and watch wildlife along the way?

Then, this should be the place for you.
Though i haven't set my foot there yet, i do want to explore and experience myself the great Kinabatangan and Kuamut life. Don't you? The picture above are views of the Kuamut jetty where the water levels would rise and flood the village and school area during rainy season. In the meantime, it IS where everyone fishes and an alternative source of water (say.. when it doesn't rain for a few weeks?).

A view on top of the hill where everyone will go and make a call.
Mi hubbi says it keeps him fit and on the go (sebab slu naik bukit kn).
I really appreciate him for this. Sincerely. Since i have no way to get to him.
And if you're thinking of the journey coming home or going back there?

Get ready for a 3 hours bumpy and wet wet ride.
The Kuamut river. Pray that it doesn't rain, so the water level will not rise, and you get to cross - safely.

Come back home safely, mi dier - everytime.
God bless.
