Photographer's Note

I was making my second photo trekking to this place, Kg. Marakau, Ranau to get closer to the small house seen in my previous Kinabalu via Marakau photo.

A school teacher built the small house, of about 720 sq ft, excluding its loft, by the side of a paddy field, and a small stream at the back. She built it as her second house, a place for her to spend school holidays with family. No road access to the house, but a 500 metres walk path from road, and a small 'bridge' to get pass.

I imagined spending holidays there, sitting loose on the veranda in the cold night with a cup (might be better with a jar) of Tenom Coffee, light tunes and wireless internet connection... browsing the Trekearth and Treklens. I supposed, one fine moonlighted night, I must come back here and wait for perfect moonlight to lit the Mount Kinabalu... and shoot.

We might know why she choose to build the house here. Not closer to the roadside where she doesn't need to walk that far, leaving her car parked overnight, unattended.

Happy shooting,
Ramdan
