Part VI of set Passenger seat {Beautiful Sabah}.

 

Passenger seat view.... This photo was taken on the way back from Keningau, the largest town in the interior, about 130km from Kota Kinabalu. At this point, we were going up a hill in the middle of some rain. The altitude is probably 1,500 ~ 2,000 feet. The road gets foggy by 2pm, and showers are regular and short.

 

This area is surrounded by the Crocker Range, the average height of which is 1,800m above sea level (that's right, about 5,400 feet). This is mainly agricultural land... paddy, vegetables, rubber, oil palm and previously, it was a timber town.

 

My friends, this is the Kadazan-Dusun heartland. You have not seen Sabah until you visit the 'soul' of this land. Welcome to Sabah, 'The Land Below The Wind".

 

Traditional kadazan dance..... this dance is pure seduction... the rhythmic sound... the twitch of the hips... the flick of the wrists...

i was standing on the swirl hanging bridge to shot this view....struggle to balance myself and the Cam...Just Loving the fantastic greenery and the Banjaran Crocker in the distance. The weather was a bit hazy the whole time while i was there. Otherwise we can enjoy more bluish layers of the mountains.

 

Location: Kg Banjar, Keningau Sabah.

Explored. thank you dearie friends!

 

Happy Sunday!

Steep descend down the Crocker Range at sunset. Photographed from the back seat of a 4WD on a return journey from Keningau, a town in the interior of Sabah {131 km from Kota Kinabalu}. The sunset was spectacular. At the higher points of this route, we were above the clouds. The average altitude of the Crocker Range is 1,800 metres (5,400 feet) above sea level.

 

So, before leaving Keningau, make sure that you have topped up your radiator.. because you will be in 3rd gear coming down. The engine slows down the car. The brake pads are easily toasted. More countryside scenes in Passenger seat {Beautiful Sabah}

Part VIII of set Passenger seat {Beautiful Sabah}. I am posting these drive-by images every weekend.

 

Passenger seat view.... This photo was taken on the way to Keningau, using a new road which cuts the distance by half but it is too steep for small cars. My friend's car, a 6-month old Honda Accord 2.4V, stalled at the last peak. (See note on photo.) It just refused to go further in "normal Drive" mode. I had better comfort in a 4.6 L turbo-charged Toyota "Ninja", perfect for this type of terrain.

 

This route is less populated as the terrain is very hilly. This is the Crocker Range, and we were basically travelling along its slopes. The average altitude is 1,800m above sea level. (That's right, about 5,400 feet). This is mainly agricultural land... paddy, vegetables, rubber, oil palm and previously, it was a timber area.

 

Keningau, our destination, is the largest town in the interior, about 130km from Kota Kinabalu. At this point, we had just left a 'pit-stop' at one of the few roadside canteens.

But there's always The Green Grass Symphony to Shot.....

 

Location: River bank of Banjar. Keningau.

Even the common Grass seems taller and harrier over there. Or was it just my imagination?...

Explored. thank you so much....

HBW All, Have a great mid week!

Passenger seat {Beautiful Sabah}. Part 10 of drive-by series. View Set here.

This is the b/w version of an earlier photo titled "Engine braking". This photo was taken on the way back from a trip to Keningau. It was taken on the same day as "Passenger seat" VIII & IX.

 

In this photo, were were heading into a foggy section, and into a sunset. The photo was shot directly into the sun which was shielded by fog. The time was 6.04pm. At this point, we were still at rather high altitude. In fact, we were just above the lower lying clouds. I will be posting one or two photos later this week that will show exactly what I mean. the feeling was like looking out the window seat of a plane.

 

I should kick myself for not doing b/w versions of many of the photos in the "Passenger seat" series. Well, now I will have an extra 10 for my stream. :-)))

Passenger seat I {B/W version}... This photo was taken just after leaving Keningau town. The time was 2.38pm, just after a short and light rain. I have added this photo to the map. At this point, we were about 130km from Kota Kinabalu.

 

The journey to KK takes 2 1/2 hours along undulating terrain. The road is fully sealed all the way. This is the old route to and from KK. A new and shorter route has been completed, cutting the distance by about half. However, that route passes very hilly terrain and is not viable for a loaded van.

 

This photo is processed for added drama. These cows do wander onto roads and this is a common sight near the town. However, further out, the road is relatively uncluttered.

Shopping!!

Had a lovely morning out with Aaron in the next town up of Keningau.

Not much in the town, mostly car spares shops, but there's the odd few shops that will keep you amused for an hour or two (and a Pizza Hut... did I mention that?!).

Managed to get two lovely dresses and a denim skirt, and Aaron got three t-shirts, so we've got some new threads to take on holiday with us next week!

Golden Birdwing {troides amphrysus, female}. A common butterfly in Malaysia, Sumatra and Java. It is usually among the first butterflies to be seen in the early morning, and the last to rest in the afternoon. The wingspan is 15~18 cm. [ More information at ButterflyCorner.net. ]

 

This photo shows a female Golden Birdwing visiting the Lantana. The photo was taken at the Kipandi Butterfly Park, Sabah. This park is sited on hilly slopes of the Crocker Range, some 36km from Kota Kinabalu along the old route to Keningau town in the interior. The altitude here is 2,100 feet (700m) above sea level. It also has a farm for native orchids, pitcher plants and other exotic flowering plants.

i'm tempted to put yet another old poem here, but my time is a bit tight...

The light, the shape of the leaves, the background, just remind me of the autumn season in the old days....

i'm not sure of the plant's name, it creeps up from the river bank to the old wooden fencing, searching for the sun light....

She is a preschool teacher at The Tabika KEMAS in Kampung Tudan Baru Keningau. She helps her students learn through play and interactive activities, capitalizing on children's play to further language and vocabulary development. Abiah wishes every woman out there 'Happy Women's day 2017!'

The excited look on my son's face still linger on my mind. He was having a great time lighting up the plastic burner (pelita raya) with 3 uncles and play with the fire crackers till mid night.

Suasana Kampung yang meriah.

lingkudau village keningau,sabah malaysia.

Murut kid poses on the cable bridge near their house.

 

The Murut are an indigenous ethnic group inhabiting northern inland regions of Borneo. A large percentage of the Murut communities are in the southwest interior of Sabah, East Malaysia, specifically the districts of Keningau, Tenom, Nabawan, and Pensiangan, along the Sapulut and Padas rivers. The literal translation of murut is "hill people".

 

The Murut were the last of Sabah's ethnic groups to renounce headhunting. As with the Iban of Sarawak, collecting heads of enemies traditional served a very important role in Murut spiritual beliefs. For example, a man could only get married after he presented at least one head to the family of the desired girl.

 

The Murut were shifting cultivators of hill padi and tapioca, supplementing their diet with blowpipe hunting and with some fishing. They live in communal longhouses, usually near rivers, using the rivers as their highways. Many have now converted to Christianity, however they still maintain their culture, however a small number of Muruts are Muslims. Most Muruts now were well educated and trained at many well known institution local or abroad, and most of them holds important post in the government, professionals, or doctors and not to mentioned a very successful business persons.
