Today, 04 August 2012…I and my boss make a rekee trip with guidance by the Padawan Municipal Council Team and Sarawak Forestry officers were on our way to discover the new place.. Not the Kampung Begu, but Kampung Temurang, just a few minutes before from the Borneo Highland resort entrance.. We manage to discover about 7 buds of Rafflesia in a place, which they called as a population area..

Well, just enjoy the photos that i took just this morning…
