Tun Sakaran Park, Malaysia

Isnt this view just B-R-E-A-T-H-T-A-K-I-N-G??? Well, that was my initial thought when i saw this card....an absolutely amazing piece of nature...situated in the distant Malaysia...well, distant for me at least...
the back of the card says: An aerial view of the islands of Tun Sakaran Park, north of Semporna. The hills of Bodgaya and Bohey Dulang islands are all that remains from the rim of an ancient volcano.
Mmmmm...it does leave the impression that a volcano used to be here...
It is located off the east coast of the state of Sabah, on the island of Borneo. It encompasses 35,000 hectares, by far the largest marine park in Malaysia.
Its just lovely...and i got it thanks to Caroline!
I wish i could just snap my fingers and be there...

the stamp is a really great one too...issued in 2008, in a set of 4 stamps called Premiere Schools. These are schools that are over 100 years old which have been selected and awarded as cluster schools due to their achievements in the academic and co-curriculum fields. These schools have produced many national leaders, corporate figures, professionals, sportsman and scholars who have contributed significantly to the growth of Malaysia in this era of globalisation.
Here you can see the SMK Convent Bukit Nanas which is a well-known premier girl’s school in Kuala Lumpur. Built in 1899, this school with its English Gothic architecture is situated on a two-acre site near the peak of Bukit nanas Forest Reserve.
SMK Bukit Nanas consistently excelled in the academic and co-curriculum fields. In 2007, this school was selected as a cluster school.
