Ive just read few chapter from this book and came across with our article regarding Kg Mentiri and their big trees (that took atleast 6 persons hand in hand to hug the tree). Two years back, me and one of NGO visited bukit at mentiri area. forest is still thick and we stopped by a big buttress tree. I hope it somehow related to your article.

Yes Siti Fred. My son is in Year 7 and I realised now that his history lessons are now encapsulated in social studies classes.
