Hi Muckpuk, yes I did make it to the hotsprings. I did not see any white monkeys though. That would have been cool. I didn't know they were around. Thank you Ali!
Did you make it to the hot springs? We did not make it, got rained away and it was getting late. We did see a red leaf monkey though! And did you manage to see a troupe of white monkeys? I am still trying to find out what they were.
Maybe by chance I have met you there because my school is nearby.
I was only 8 at that time.
I only spent 4 days in Tawau Hills National Park.
How long did you spent in Tawau ?
No problem Chun, I've joined the mission and added this. I think I have more spottings that are perfect for this mission. I spent 2 months in Sabah! Loved it!
Thanks for the commets Carolina, ceherzog and twoodside, sorry I missed them.
I hope you can join this mission
what a beauty!
