Spent NYE around Kuching and Santubong in Sarawak, Borneo. We went with the intention of seeing orang utans but didn’t get to it this time. Instead we lazed about by the pool at the resort with a great big beautiful backdrop of Mt Santubong. Next time we will also have to climb the mountain - takes about 6 hours we think. This time round, we just did a couple of 2 hour walks through the jungle at the base. Saw some nice waterfalls and excellent trees and vines. We saw a small monkey, shortly followed by a larger monkey that jumped to the ground and started to charge at us from about 10 metres away. My first instinct was to step forward waving my arms and roar at it with my best impression of a lion. Liz picked up some sticks and followed suit with the roars and waving. The monkey pulled up about 5 metres away and retreated to the trees. Then we could no longer see them but just hear them swishing from tree to tree. We started to freak out a little that they would jump down on top of us, so we both took sticks and walked quickly along the track about 100m to where it opened out onto a beach. Shaking a bit from the experience we sat down to rest and were quickly distracted by a group of sea otters swimming just off shore and eating fish. Well worth another visit.
