The Last Communist

Spent the last 2 days in the jungle for a shoot, day 1 of the shoot was utter disaster so I rather not talk about it, I wasn't able to do much too thanks to my thumb so instead of "working" I was either taking pictures, walking in to the orang asli village to chat with the people, play with asli children or sleeping.
Skin is starting to fall off, ouch...

Day 2 of the shoot, the director made me put on a communist terrorist costume and run around the jungle and in the end got myself killed and beheaded by an Indonesian military personal, I was the only person there in a communist outfit while the rest are mostly Sarawak Rangers, and it looks as if I am a captured terrorist.
Acting as a communist terrorist caught in the Sarawak Communist Insurgency made me curious about how the communist were back then, and it's amazing how they can survive in the jungle and have their morale high as we were told by an army officer who is training near the shoot.


Well, I had my fun playing as a communist for a day at the shoot, and it's back to being myself now.

Have a Great Day

Hi Dennis,

Nice to know that you're an adventurous guy. Check out my blog. I have a few adventurous stuff up my sleeves as well...like spending a night camping alone, and running half naked in a marathon.....
I've always wanted to go to Strata Falls. I wonder if you would like to join me. I like travelling with one or two people because it's less hassle....
anyway, do keep in touch....
If you think of going to strata this weekend, do let me know.Im game for it.
