One year I had a vacation at Beringgis Beach Resort in Kinarut. The weather was nice and a beautiful sunset was approaching. Then I saw there was something else also enjoying the sunset.

It’s a buffalo at the beach. Seeing buffalo in paddy field is a common sight in Sabah, but I wonder what the heck it was doing in the sea. It looks like a depressed blue-collar wanting to end his burdensome life by drowning himself in the water. :-p

Out of curiousity, I walked to this buffalo for a closer look to see if it was sick. It noticed me but my presence didn’t bother it at all, nor did it try to move away. Since it was used to human presence, it must be from the village nearby.

Old buffalo
This buffalo is really old and its horns are almost triple the length of other buffaloes! The gold ray of sunset shined on its hairy body, making it looks like some sort of tutelary LOL. But I didn’t dare to go too near.

So I just stick around to see what it would do next.

The high tide started to come in and the water got deeper, but it showed no intention of getting out of water.

The sea level got higher and reached its belly, and it was washed by waves after waves. It looked enjoyable and wagging its tail. Ok, now I see what it was doing. It’s taking a sunset bath! What? A retired buffalo trying to relax and enjoy life? LOL.

Whatever, I wish you all have a nice weekend. We should learn from this buffalo who knows how to have a good time.
