Offwire: Picnic, Stream and Pebbles

We were back to our favorite weekend spot last Sunday - a small stream in Borneo Highland, about an hour drive from the city. This time around, we did more planning (Yeah! most of the time we don't plan. We just decide on the spot and jump into the car). So, instead of the normal junk food (chips and more chips), we decided to do a bit more this time - Barbecue! Just need more preparation the night before such as marinating the chicken wings, prepare the charcoal, drinks, clothing, etc.etc...In the end, everyone enjoyed the trip.

Starting the fire and the yummy chicken wings, potatoes and buns (not in pix) and sausages :). They are really yummy especially when you are hungry...Too bad we didn't find any sweet corn at the market that morning.

For all the planning, we forgot the cups. So ended up using the polystyrene cover as replacement!

While the rest went upstream to the hot spring, I stayed behind to look after our belongings.
What else can I do? Well, I did a bit of camwhoring...hehehe....
The water is only knee deep, very clear and lots of pebbles. Collected some but didn't take any picture.
On the way home, we stopped by a Bidayuh longhouse. Marcia took picture next to a cage full of skulls. Souvenirs from the head hunting period, probably more than 100 years ago.
Some villagers on the way to church, probably in preparation for the coming Christmas celebration.
