    should you decide to wander into the jungle ...
    and find yourself in need of nourishment ...

    don't worry .... there's plenty of food around

    basic rule is to observe the animals, birds and insects ....
    and eat whatever they eat!!!
    and spare their lives ...

    mostly fruits and leaves incl young shoots...

    Favorite Dish: my favourite is nibong palm shoots

    also ferns esp. lamiding and pakis

    and ulam ie young shoots of some trees and bushes ....
    eg kulimpapa, gajus, ubi kayu,

    Locals have a saying - Malu Bertanya, Sesat Jalan - Hesitant to Enquire, Lose Direction.

    It is okay to approach a local and ask for assistance, chances are someone will help you, sincerely.

    Travellers and tourists are still a novelty, and provide a welcome change to most locals' routines!

    don't swim at the eastern tip of serasa beach, the under-currents are strong due tidal movements ..

    don't go up bukit tempayan pisang alone..

    do give way to buffaloes on the road... they assume right of passage!

    You can combine jungle trekking and hill climbing up Bukit Tempayan Pisang.

    From the hill-top, you get an uninterrupted view into the Borneo hinterland plus out into the South China Sea.

    Contact the village head for guidance.
