Over the din of the mud slinging in the nation's Capital and the quagmire in Perak, Bekenu, Sarawak must be a refreshing rural rendevous.
There are large palm oil plantations in the region and there must be jobs around, hard work despite all the gloom and doom of the economy bustup. If you love rocks and formation and all geology, you could find something interesting there. You could find more oil under your feet. No, not above your brows: that's palm oil.
And the folks there are not really "uluish". They know brands and quality: they drink good coffee, "Setarbak". Next door there's a reminder for you to behave.
And what could give you the yen to go there has be the health pull - there are mud volcanoes there.
Who knows? Could make you healthier. Better than the mud they throw around in KL! That's for sure!
