I like to drive aimlessly to explore interesting spot. Tuaran is one of my favourite places, which has large piece of wetlands. Don’t you agree, many great photos are related to water, e.g. sea, beaches, rivers, lakes?

Below is a photo taken near a shallow river, which flows slowly, with many nipah and acrostichum plant grow on it. They grow so dense that I always wonder what are hiding inside, since I was a kid. But catching the fishes and crabs in the water are already enough to thrill me.

Then I found a small lake that looks like an abandoned aquaculture site. There were some local and migratory birds feeding on it.

Below is a photo of a “fisherman” who was catching fishes. Usually they are ordinary village people, who tried to get alternative protein source. Sometimes I find them extremely annoying. When I was fishing with friends, they always ignored our joyful activity and just threw the fxxking fishing net next to us.

I discovered someone dumped cotton everywhere on the ground. When I looked up, it was a tree full of “cotton” fruits.

Just wonder whether this is where our cotton coming from…

If you got time, feel free to visit, experience and “smell” kampung (village) life in Tuaran. But beware of the “land mines” (bull shit, cow shit, buffalo shit, etc.).
