Thanks for CH picking me up around 6:40 am and also thanks to the efficiency of the customs officers on both sides of the causeway, by 8:30 am we were on a new highway heading towards Panti Forest.
A usual practice we have is to enjoy a "bak ku teh" "brunch" at a roadside stall at about three-quarter way point of our journey. The number of cars and a large crowd startled us - we had to wait quite a while for a vacant table and our food to be served.
We set off for our destination about an hour later. When the car turned into a dirt road situated between two immense World War II concrete bunkers, we saw a few Singaporean cars and a group of birders armed with their "big guns" waiting for their targets to appear. The moment we reached the "base camp", we put on our leech socks and sprang into actions.
Though not strikingly coloured, to me The Constable (Dichorragia nesimachus deiokes) is a very pretty Nymphalid butterfly found in the rain forests.
