Excellent blog with awesome pictures! As a local, I would add that the Royal Regalia Museum was previously the Sir Winston Churchill Memorial. It housed the only Churchill memorial outside of England, and had a bronze statue of Sir Winston Churchill with his famous "V" sign. It also had an aquarium, and was a popular meeting place for youngsters. The building was originally C-shaped.... "Rice in the market" picture is actually showing various grades of dried anchovies, an essential ingredient in many Malay cooking. Oh yes, one can compare the Sungai Damuan tour as a compact version of Sg Kinabatangan tour in Sabah, minus the orang utans and pygmy elephants. In fact, I can view the proboscis monkeys from my sister's kitchen along the Damuan river!

Horrible spider

OMG, that is a horrible one! It reminds me of some nightly visitors to our bathroom of our hut, in the jungle in Thailand a few years ago. They terrorized me.

Theft at Siam Hut
I visited Siam Hut just yesterday. Pleasant place with bad staff! My money was stolen in front of other customers and 6 of my colleagues. I left my wallet on the counter to deliver drinks to my table. After ordering another round I found my wallet missing. I asked the girl behind the counter and she immediately gave my wallet to me. BUT!!!!! All of my money was gone. It totaled 3500 Baht. This is not a lot of money to some; but, it is to me. When I asked her who returned the wallet, she got very defensive and looked rather angry/guilty. She made up a story about a White guy returning it. (lies!). As I left she tried to yell at me and make me feel bad about loosing my money to which I let her have a verbal beating back. I called the police and made a report and immediately left the island. Now I have heard more about this manager and her ways. Many people have had there money stolen there. One man who was brave enough to confront her more got his hand chopped up with a butcher knife. I have been going there for 10 years and never had an issues like this, no matter the resort I stayed in. I just want others to know.

Hi Sophie & Dale, When I was about to visit Derawan, I browse about Derawan & found you blog. It made me more eager to visit Derawan. Finally, I visited it last month. I stayed in Losmen Danakan & I think I stayed the same room as you guys :p Too bad I couldn't meet the mantas & couldn't watch the turtles laying eggs. But overal, it was an amazing trip, an almost perfect trip. Hopefuly I have the chance to go back there and make it as a perfect trip.

how does it taste?
You didn't say if it tastes good or not. Is the bottle of dog's blood included in the price too?

Hermit Crab in Sardine Can
The one you mentioned as "coconut crab and his house" is actually not a coconut crab, but a very large hermit crab - this species scientific name is Coenobita brevimanus. They did not have any choice that they had to use metal can as shell. If you offered a quite large gastropod shell to that hermit crab for sure he would have abandoned such ugly can.
