2012 – We flew from Brunei to Kota Kinabalu, located on the northern tip of Malaysia. Excellent flight with Royal Brunei Air. We enjoyed our time at the Sangri la Rasi Rio Resort, situated on Patal Dalit Beach. Offered great views of the Kinabalu Mountain peaks in distance. It is hard to believe we have it made this far.

The reason we stayed here was to catch our first glimpse of Orangutans at the private reserve owned by the this resort.
This 5 month old tiny baby orangutan was rescued from a palm oil plantation where her Mom was killed. I felt so heartbroken for her loosing her family. As it was raining very hard, we were thinking we might not get a chance to see her. Baby orangutans are very delicate. Lucky the rain stopped and the ranger brought her out. She appeared to be a tiny human baby, dressed in little shirt and diaper.
Later, they put her back in her bed to rest. Sleep well baby.
