A scene from the "floating village" of Pulau Gaya (Gaya Island). Sources on the internet also call the community here as the Bajau (indegenous group) gypsies. A mix of Bajau, Filipino and Indonesian communities is probably more accurate.


For long an eyesore (and issue of public, environmental and political interests), this water village has been shrinking over the years. Many of these houses have been dismantled, while a few are being rebuilt. Mass relocation is certainly a daunting task. And just nearby, on the same island, are two excellent 5 star resorts.


Pulau Gaya is the largest of five islands that are collectively known as the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park (est 1974), and it is about 3 km from the mainland. The other islands are Manukan, Sapi, Suluk and Mamutik. Non of the other islands have these villages.


Pulau Gaya is also known to have the most type of dipterocarp trees that can be found in Sabah's rainforest. Wikipedia info on Dipterocarpaceae.


See where this picture was taken. [?]

Flame of the forest....the leaves are golden, looks like an autumn in Manukan Island.

This is Roy, a very happy and cute kid. He didn't realize that i was taking his picture. I show this picture to him afterward and he's loving it :-). This is my favorite of many pictures of him and his friend that i managed to captured yesterday.

I didn't realize I made a double exposure when I saw this printed. The result is quite interesting nonetheless for this lucky shot.

Kota Kinabalu (formerly Jesselton)is the capital of Sabah state in Malaysia. The city is located on the northwest coast of Borneo facing the South China Sea. The Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park lies on one side and Mount Kinabalu, which gave the city its name, is nearby.


You can also find many stilt villages around the city, in the areas of Sembulan, Tanjung Aru, Kampung Likas, and Kampung Pondo in Pulau Gaya. These houses are built on coastal shallow waters and are typical homes for the Bajau and Suluk inhabitants.


For the sunset I headed to one of the water village areas, but just before sunset I had some crazy tropical storm with lots of rain, however it ended just in time so I could take some nice shots of that amazing sky that exploded with color later on.

Mamutik, one of the islands that make up the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysian Borneo.

Manukan Island, Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park, off the coast of Borneo near Kota Kinabalu, Sabah state, Malaysia. Taken from the pier in the morning before the tour groups arrived. And they arrived occupying every cubic meter of saline water. The coral out there is deader than the morgue in a ghost town already.

Manukan Island Resort is located just off the coast of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and provides an island getaway with luxurious accommodation options. A mere 10 minutes by boat from the city of Kota Kinabalu, Manukan island is the second largest island of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine National Park and provides an idyllic option for island accommodation in Malaysia.

Tunku Abdul Rahman National Marine Park, Mnukan Island, Sabah, Malaysia, May 07 / 拾塑料瓶垃圾的老人,我不知道她是拿着公园给的工资还是纯粹自发在做这件事。总之,在东马,我常看见一些并不见得看上去很体面的人,做着很体面的事

This is the view as we stepped off our dive boat onto the Island of Mamutik, in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine park where we had lunch after our second dive.

A beautiful day at the beach from Sapi Island, KK. This was shot handheld at 21mm and a polarizer to get the deep blue skies and water you see here. For the foreground detail, an overexposed shot was blended in to achieve a DRI.


Just curious, would anybody be interested if I ran a workshop on digital post processing sometime down the road?

After snorkeling we went into the forest on the island.....Look what I'd found. At first I did not notice the mantis. I only focused on the butterfly after uploading to my computer I saw this creature was also aiming at the butterfly.......but not to worry, because the butterfly flown away after my shot. After that???...who knows??

Just beyond the sunset

Someone waits for me

Just beyond the sunset

Lies my destiny

Where the purple mountains

Lie in deep tranquillity

There I’ll find the treasure

Of love eternally


Just beyond the sunset

Waits someone so fair

Just beyond the sunset

All alone they wait there

Their hair is golden

The colour of the sand

Their eyes sparkle in the night

Like diamonds in your hand


Just beyond the sunset

Lies a home for me

Where the world is peaceful

Like a paradise should be

Just beyond the sunset

Someday is where you’ll find me

Borneo Anglehead Agamid


Species of the Gonocephalus genus occur throughout Sunda (Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo, Java, Sumatra) and also in the southern Philippines. The Borneo Anglehead Agamid is, as its name suggests, limited to Borneo. It mainly inhabits lowland primary rainforest below 700 metres but at Mount Kinabalu can be found at higher elevations.


The dorsal and lateral surfaces are mottled olive green or brownish-green, and the ventral surface is pale. The tail has a series of thick olive-green bands. Its remarkable crest extends from the above the neck along the entire length of the body to the base of the tail.


Family : Agamidae

Species : Gonocephalus borneensis

Size (snout to vent) : up to 13 cm

Size (total length) : up to 40 cm

We have been diving just opposite our office in Kota Kinabalu quite a bit recently as we are planning a new coffee table book on Sabah. Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, locally known as TARP, really has some great little gems waiting to be photographed, like the purple weedy scorpionfish.
