Came across an interesting website promoting the message that Birds Come First. Contents of website are in Thai script, so it is difficult for a non-native speaker (like me) to fully appreciate information in this website. Birds Come First is an important message which I fully support. Three interesting banners were provided through this website to spread this message that Birds Come First (in Thai script). Am spreading the message below:)

The flowing stream along Silau-Silau trail added to the tranquility and beauty of flora and fauna. The pink flowering plant in the picture above reminded me of the ones that I have seen before in Fraser Hill, Peninsular Malaysia. We were at montane level in Silau-silau trail.
Mount Kinabalu as viewed from the town of Nabalu, our first stop before reaching Kinabalu Park.
Homes on the base of Mount Kinabalu and the signboard welcoming visitors to Nabalu town, Kota Belud, Sabah. I've never climbed to the summit of Mount Kinabalu before so I can only just imagine how the view of these homes all lighted up, would look like from the summit at dawn or dusk.
