    Very nice collection of photos, Adrian. Thanks for the memories. Nothing stays the same, of course, especially the garden. Hope to see you again soon in Papan.

    Sad news! No.18 Main Road has been bought by someone who wants to turn it into a swift hotel. The building is being rebuilt. I need to get more information before taking action. We need to protest such intrusion into our historic town.

    Seems like the Federal Government is optimistic that by 2020, Malaysia’s bird’s nest export value will reach RM5bil annually. However, under the 1998 Wildlife Protection Ordinance, swiftlet farming is not permitted in towns and residential areas. So would the much-anticipated guidelines have enough bite to stop swiftlet farming from mushrooming in such places in spite of the lucrative returns? Also, despite the urgency for immediate attention, the National guidelines for the matter that was supposed to be tabled in Parliament sitting last March has been postponed.
