Enjoying the laidback vibes here at this new neighbourhood called Twentyfive.7 at Kota Kemuning! I also love the pet-friendly park here so that I can bring my dog out for a walk every evening! It also has pet waste disposal stations around the park too! Visit their website for more! Facebook: bit.ly/GLFBdf Website: bit.ly/GL257ws

Few communities around the world can boast a deeper connection with the ocean than the Bajau Laut of Borneo. Often referred to as ‘sea gypsies’ they follow a nomadic, seafaring way of life throughout their entire lives & rarely set foot on land. A 2010 study found that when they do spend the occasional night or two on solid ground, they often report feeling ‘landsick’. Following in the footsteps of their ancestors, they earn their living solely based on the ocean’s resources and generally only go ashore for business - selling their catches, collecting fresh water for drinking or wood for making boats. They are exceptional free divers, many can dive to depths of well over 20m while holding their breath for several minutes. All this as they hunt for fish, lobsters, sea cucumbers (tripang) & other marine life.
They have always been, and still are, ‘stateless’ people. They are not given citizenship status by either Malaysia, Philippines or Indonesia as they reside in the waters of the Sulu & Celebes Sea, & not strictly on land owned by any country. Children often do not have access to a formal education because of this statelessness.
