Sandakan, Sabah

3

The Second largest city in Sabah, Sandakan is known to be very ecotourism friendly as the Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre, Turtle Islands Park and Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary are all situated in Sandakan.

At the Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre, one gets to see many wild orang utan swinging out from the tropical forest during the feeding time at 10am and 3pm daily.

Also, being very near to the sea, it means that Sandakan is offering a wide selection of fresh and cheap seafood for those who are craving for seafood, at a local fishing village, Kampung Buli Sim Sim.

There are many local Chinese who lives in Sandakan. Thus a fiery red and gold temple, the Puu Jih Shih Buddhist Temple which overlooks the town centre was built and completed in year 1987.

In Sabah, most of the Chinese speak Hakka in their daily conversations. Hakka is a very well-spoken Chinese Dialect in the Chinese community, after Cantonese and Hokkien.
Me myself, being very proud, is a Hakka girl, and could speak Hakka too. :)

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    When the Soul Speaks Through Images: an Interview with Suji Park

    When a truly fascinating photograph hits you, it’s powerful enough to transport you to the story that is being told in that image. Such is what happens when one sees Suji Park's work for the first time. It’s as if you can actually hear and feel the details of each snapshot — the warmth of a late afternoon sun, the complex silence of nature or a dry and nostalgic solitude.
