Last weekend, Christina came over and we went out to a few places, some I’ve been before, some I have not. Pixies taken by me unless noted otherwise, using Chris’ camera, of course. Less talk more pixels:

*Now that I have seen orangutans, I am looking forward to see the other orang, the orang belanda (literal translation : the Dutchman), the layman term here for proboscis monkey. I wonder why the name orangutan has been internationally used but not orang belanda? Obvious from the derogatory usage huh?
