AUGUST 3, 1938 THEY are in a way funny people, these river folk (orang sungei) found in Kampong Kuamut (Kinabatangan). They are of whom undoubtedly the best types are to be not happy unless they have a boat or two to worry about. I remember that when I had to cross B.N.B. in December 1936, it was a difficult task to induce these fellows to leave behind their gobangs in the farthest ulu of Sungei Pinanga, in fact a reconnaissance trip was necessary in order to prove to them that the watershed towards Sungei Sepulut is actually 3,000 feet high, and to take boats thither would become rather a discomfort.

3RD AUGUST, 1938 Time passed and we "clocked" the sun; for no decent jungle man carries a watch, not even should he happen to be Swiss! And jungle time! But as Kipling has it, that is another story. It was almost two o'clock and time to return to camp. Only the waterfall had to be climbed first with the Piulin aneroid. The latter registered a height of 23m (80ft).

Left Sandakan at 8am in the growler, having in tow two canoes of Mr White’s, who was going to survey some land at the upper end of the Bay, dropped him at old Sandakan; arrived at the Buludupy Kampong at Seguliud at 2pm, borrowed a canoe from the natives and returned the Growler; which got back to Sandakan the same night.
