The tip of Borneo


Photos taken at the tip of Borneo, about 30 kms away
from Kudat, Sabah. Absolutely beautiful.




In Kudat, Sabah

In Kudat, Sabah now. Just finished shooting my first
lesson learning one of the traditional dances of the Rungus people.
One part of the costume is definitely going to be heavy!

At College of Dramatic Arts, Korat, Thailand

Watching dancers perform dance that I learnt while in Thailand.


Doing hair and makeup for performance. Thai traditional hairstyles require
a lot of hairspray and backcombing!
