Mahathir tidal kenal sejarah
Siapa buta sejarah?
Golf iron punya belasah
Pembelot tanah air
Mahathir tidak mudah lupa
Usah buka mulut
Jual, jual, jual ...
Jadi Bangsa Semperak!

The Kelabit Highlands located in the mountains bordering Kalimantan in northeast Borneo is a paradise out of nowhere.
Apart from the Kelabits, there are the Lun Bawang, Saban, Penan, and Kenyah communities living there. Ba' Kelalan (northern tip of map below) is where some apple is being grown.
The Highlands is accessible by Twin Otter flights from Miri. It is pitiful that there is no proper road built except for timber track to to such a pleasant location.
The new airport at Bario, the hub of the Kelabit Highlands.
Bario township showing the community centre (red rooftop). Without a good road to the Highlands it is difficult and expensive to bring supplies and provide infrastructure.
Padi fields that produce the famous Bario rice.
Buffaloes are used as work animals in the padi fields.
The Kelabit version of longhouse.

FLOM, do the split from MO1 before DoJ gets him to Guantanamo. They cannot pin you down on 1MDB fiasco. The most you suffer some collateral damage.
Get the money and run. Ontok2 kao bori den sikit yo. Sepo tak hondak duit. Lagipun kito sosuku.
Kiss the froggy goodbye.

The mandate for RISDA (Rubber Industry Smallholders Development Authority) is to help smallholders to grow rubber - planting materials, replanting, subsidy, advisory etc. Smallholders are encouraged to grow cash crops between the rubber rows during the first few years of replanting.
Now RISDA wants to commercialise ketum planting. There is money for export. They cannot farm out the plantings because of difficulty to control abuses. But, first and foremost, the law must legalise ketum at least in the production. Is there a haram fatwa proclaimed already?
If RISDA has the monopoly to grow ketum legally then they might as well get into the business of more lucrative cannabis (hemp) cultivation on the premise for medical use.
The Chinese know very well the debilitating effects of opium addiction.
Puffing tobacco is bad for health but what pastime I have in the deep jungle of Borneo? Mosquitoes abound!
On LSD and other psychedelics.
HIGH PRIEST OF LSD RELIGION, Dr. Timothy Leary, who is seeking legal sanction for the sacramental use of LSD in his "psychedelic celebrations," is seen at his morning meditations, featuring yoga exercises, at Castalla Foundation, Milbrook, N.Y.
Dumping site - swine sharing the children's playground?
Walk the hog.
Research - piglet as guinea pig.
Moments before this picture was taken, this woman in Irian Jaya was suckling the piglet. In the island of New Guinea, men value their wealth in pigs first and wives second.
A fruitful hunt, a wild pig to take back to the longhouse.

KBS shortform kebas ke?
Jantan botino samo jo
Buek kojo sikit tolan duit sogunung
Kau jang samo jo
Dulu kato tak ondak subsidi
Sobab dah songlap ko?
Osah kau tak guno boto
Anak omak kau
Kotopi kau somua
Cam ni ko bolo belio?
