Attending a 3 day intensive conference is no joke. The matter overload is nuts, and that's a good thing really. But the organizers did let us out once to have some sun and fun and while others chose to go golfing and snorkeling, i chose white water rafting along Sungai Kiulu.
About 90 minutes inland from Kota Kinabalu, the river's source is Mount Kinabalu and is usually a calm and easy Level 2 white water experience. However, the rain over the last few days has been quite heavy, and this led to higher water levels, and certainly quite a bit faster running too. By the time we went in, it was Level 3 stuff, and despite the dingy nearly capsizing a few times, my team and i had great fun.
Then at the end, we came up a small kampung, and I took these photos to capture the moment.
