A local ant giving me a brown nose!

No - this kitty is not sick or dead. He/she was rolling around on the ground trying to get my attention for a cuddle; Note the stumpy tail. Most of the feral cats in Malaysia have stumpy tails.

Nutmeg fruit. The white fruit is edible. The red strips around the nutmeg are mace (which is a superior spice if you can get it) and which is squeezed to make nutmeg oil. Nutmeg oil eases pain of arthritis, muscle stiffness and sprains etc.
Tan, our tour guide today, massaging nutmeg oil into one of the passenger's knee.
