Sorry for the lack of updates. Have been travelling quite abit. In fact, just before CNY, I was literally living from my backpack. 1 week in Belaga & Asap, 2 days back in Song to do laundry, pack up the bags then its another week up the Katibas to run my rural clinics. Came back, did laundry again & worked 2 days before going off to Kuching for a couple of days, both for work & play (met an old uni friend). After that, took the boat back up the Rejang, did laundry, worked for a couple of days then BACK HOME to collect angpows! Wow... what a cycle!
Now I know what it feels like to be in the airlines. Only thing is, in the airlines you stay in fancy hotels, get chauffeured to the airport & things usually work out as scheduled. Here along the Batang Rejang, be grateful you even have a mattress to lie on, a seat on the express (coming home for CNY, I had to choose between the roof or the floor. I chose the later!) and always expect the unexpected anytime!

I'm not complaining. This is an experience of a lifetime. Something to tell the kids & the grandkids about!
Plus, I've got Elliot as my travel companion!
