A 2D1N With the Awesome American Couple

Mark & Chelsea, are one of those rare and awesome people I’ve met so far. On a nice budget trip they decided to go for the 2 days 1 night trip to the Annah Rais Bidayuh Longhouse with a few swims in the the river and waterfall. During this trip, they manage to see a, maybe 4 ft long or slightly more, snake crossing the road, eat rice cooked in pitcher plant, chicken cooked in bamboo, wild vegetables from the jungle of Borneo and more rice wine! which I personally think is Mark’s fave drink. Hahahahah. They also had the privilege to meet one of the traditional music player and maker there and witness him play 2 songs. But here are more photo’s and video of bits and pieces of the trip.
