Photographer's Note

As the northern hemisphere enters the winter season, we are still having hot equatorial climate in Sarawak although end of the year is also the wet season bringing more rains. Yesterday while trekking at 560m Mount Singai, a pair of travel agents from Germany now staying in Kuching voiced how they disliked the winter. Of course it has been the tradition for many people in Northern Hemisphere to escape the cold winter by going south.

Four seasons of a year - the tropical rainforest of Borneo is always the same color, except in the highlands where the flowers and greens colors are more yellowish. At 3600feet of the Borneo highlands interior, the fog covers most of the mountains after rain. The interiors of Sarawak also means the borders of high altitude that is shared with Indonesia's Kalimantan province.

The advantage of Sarawak with tropical weather is that we only need 1 set of clothes, unlike the 4-seasons where you need clothes for summer (very little), autumn, winter and spring.
