About 2 years ago, I posted an article entitled Imagine..., of which some of my friends voted as one of my best pieces. But I can't remember now why they liked that article. Perhaps it was the thought-provoking aspect of it that was interesting to them. I have since written quite a lot of other rubbish in this blog which have also won thumbs-up from my friends.
Anyway, while I was writing "Imagine...", I thought I'd just insert a photo for illustration purposes. I searched the net and found one which I thought was just perfect for my article. But I did not know the origin of that photo, and I did not quote my source.
Recently, a Director of our Sandakan office bought a limited-edition book entitled Spirit of Borneo. He bought one for himself, one for KK office, and another for our Group Chairman. It's basically a pictorial journey of Martin and Osa Johnson 1920 & 1935 in Sabah. Priced at RM300 each, I think it's well worth it. I realised that although the picture I posted in "Imagine..." is not included in the Spirit of Borneo, I now know that it came from the same source. So although a bit late in the day, I feel it's just right that I mention it here that that photo in "Imagine..." was one of Osa Johnson's.
I would recommend it to those of you who are keen to see what the native Sabahans looked like almost a century ago. It is just amazing how much we have progressed in less than a hundred years. I append below some of the pages to whet your appetite!
