Sarawak, Malaysia. With its original immigration control policy, you need a passport not just when your flight is an international, but also a domestic. Owing to more percentage of indigenous population compared to peninsula Malaysia, Sarawak doesn't really seems like Malaysia.
As has been reported, though Borneo has been called as ‘biodiversity hotspot’ or ‘Lung of Asia’, mass logging has started in 1960’s and the major buyer of the timber is Japan. And still the logging is proceeding to deeper forest, and the places already logged are changing into oil palm or acacia plantation.
This is a story on how the Penan, one of the tribes in Borneo, has been forced to change their traditional living with the forest by the massive logging in this 4 decades, and how it changed their lives and even sense of value, how they think.
