Mama Betty

Fast boat to Manukan Island with the enigmatic 70 year young Betty, owner of KK Tours. Self-styled ‘Mama Betty’, the most well-connected Tourist agent in Sabah (her past life in the Bornean police special branch no doubt extending her sphere of influence), was to become a recurring motif during our journey around Borneo, usually appearing just in time to thwart chaos and disaster, with a beaming smile and infectious positivity.
