FAX - "Flights Are Cancelled"

We materialise from the jungle, and check in at the less than inspiring Lahad Datu airport.

Only to find that, not for the first time, our flight is cancelled (note the hi tech means by which they inform their valuable customers of this unfortunate circumstance...). We've got three flights with two international connections to make, at KK & Singapore, so our patience is tested but... rewarded when our Fokker 50 flight back across Borneo offers a stunning view of Mount Kinabalu, shrouded in mist; it was rare indeed to see the summit from the foothills around the park and this felt like quite a privilege as we said goodbye to this spectacular place.
