Rafflesia flower…is a parasitic flowering plants. Approximately about 28 species been reported discovered in Soth East Asia..Its including Malaysia…and Sarawak Borneo is a part of it, where the famous Rafflesia Flower protected area is in Gunung Gading National Park, in Lundu Sarawak..

20 July 2012…..Borneo Post newspaper reports that a new Rafflesia area been recognized in Padawan area, in Kampung Begu… Kampung Begu is about few kilometres from the Kota Padawan, and the Rafflesia site that had been discovered is just 5minutes from the road side… But aside from Kampung Begu, there is also a further up Padawan village that also have discovered Rafflesia area…

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…

A lot of people may heard about these two ‘kampongs’, but not many knows that this kampongs have their priceless treasure, the Gua Raya. The meaning of Gua Raya as per said by one of the kampong folks, that it means ‘Big Cave’, because inside is big and once upon a time was a hiding places of communists, and there is some history hidden in it.
