If there was a time that I could have wished that I have a full set of Global Positioning Coordinates for Sri Aman it would have helped me two days ago. That was the time I escorted the Deputy Chief Minister YB Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr. Alfred Jabu around Sri Aman - and got lost! As Sri Aman was having a string of VVIP guests dropping by including YB Dato Sri Abang Zohari, my Resident and I split the protocol tasks. So I had to put my trust on the local driver who was driving the official car. And well, I discovered that I had not really known Sri Aman that well. Accompanying the Deputy Chief Minister in the lead car I brought him to the middle of a padi field somewhere in Sri Aman District!
After that I made a rush to the Sri Aman Hospital to join in the SABERKAS Raya Goodies Handout to the patienst which was done by YB Dato Sri Abang Zohari
Its a hectic week really. There was some comfort for me though as the Deputy Chief Minister's private Secretary Mr. Richard Lon had some goodies for me when he touched down in Sri Aman together with his boss. He managed to capture some nice aerial shots of Sri Aman - thanks Richard!

Other than that, other things occupy my mind as I struggle to keep a steady course for this week. During my return journey to Sri Aman this week, I managed to capture on camera glimpses of moments that pass me by.

Well said Tuan Kanang! I am glad to have met him as I will now have a formidable Iban tracker to help me out just in case I get Lost In Sri Aman again!
