orang utans in their natural habitat May 19, 2008
Sipilok Orang Utan Reserve: This is managed by a UK organisation to preserve orang utans in borneo. feeding time at 10am and 3pm daily. rm10 for camera fees. 25pounds per year to adopt an orang utan. entry fee rm30 for adults. if u missed the feeding time, u may risk not seeing any orang utan at all as the place is just like a natural forest and the orang utans may be deep in the forest. the reserves take care of the young ones, teach them survival skills and release them in the reserve. some of them go back to feeding platform occasionally, some all the time, some never go back as they are able to find all the food they need in the wild. for those adult orang utans who can survive in the wild, they are transported by helicoptor into another forest which is twice the size of singapore. i was lucky while i was there. i saw at least 8 orang utans.

From Kinabalu airport to sandakan town: Arrive in kota kinabalu airport at about 930am. took a cab, rm30 to northern bus terminal. the aircon express bus depart to sandakan at 10am and 2am. took the 10am one, cost rm33 per person. the journey took 6 hours, via most mountain roads. along the way, saw the foot ok Mt kinabalu part, 5 cows lying by the road, a chicken farm and nice mountain sceneries. for the rest of the time, i was sleeping.
