River restaurants serving seafish

In the Taman Negara rainforest

You'd expect these floating restaurants in Kuala Tahan, smack dab in the middle of the Malaysian rainforest, to serve fish that jumped straight from the river into the pan! Alas when you order fish you get served seafish that was trucked in from a place at least 4 or 5 hours driving away! You CAN order river-fish, but that will bump up the price by a factor 5! Strange..

On this tropical trip through Malaysia I really appreciated airconditioning, and could not agree more with Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore's founding father who said:

Air conditioning was a most important invention for us, perhaps one of the signal inventions of history. It changed the nature of civilization by making development possible in the tropics.
Without air conditioning you can work only in the cool early-morning hours or at dusk. The first thing I did upon becoming prime minister was to install air conditioners in buildings where the civil service worked. This was key to public efficiency.
