Bits 'n' pieces

I had a load of fun over at Sia's Blog. Although I didn't imagine that we'd end up talking about cockroaches. Anyway, you can see the conversation in the comments section here.

And here's a few more photos from Borneo Rainforest Lodge.

Imagine, you are hot and sweaty and have almost been wiped out by a falling branch....

And then you arrive at a place that looks like this:
And you find a table, set with cloth, cutlery, napkins...cold chicken, cucumber sandwiches, fruit, cakes and jellies...
As Ann said, how Noel Coward! So I promptly withdrew my silver inlaid-with-mother-of-pearl card case from my skanky belt pouch, and gave them my visiting card...(no, not joking)
I mean, you can't miss an opportunity like that, can you?

Very Noel Coward. The best I ever did for a card case was one made of lamb's skin, it was gorgeous and I gave it away when retired, didn't think I'd need it again. Now I make my own cards.

Beautiful place Glenda - not quite as envious as I was though bearing in mind falling branches King Cobras and tigers.

Sabah doesn't have tigers...and I've been trying for years to see one in West Malaysia; no luck yet, though I've been close.
