So we arrived at Sepilok Jungle Resort in the middle of the afternoon, we had some time to relax. We took dinner at the restaurant inhouse – it was actually pretty good and quite cheap.
I love this fern they serve there, they call it Sabah Vege (Sayur Manis) – delicious!
Anyway we had some time to read our books, and for me to wonder around and take some pics, play with HDR bracketing and my Cokin filters.
Sepilok Jungle Resort is a decent place, the accommodation is simple and clean enough, it’s not a luxury establishment – but it does offer rooms with air-con and it’s extremely near to the Orang-Utan sanctuary.
I had a wonder around the compound and found this interesting old building.
Then I had a play with my Cokin filters, please note none of these pictures are created with Photoshop or any imaging software (apart from the first in the first triptych) they are created by using a combination of graduated and solid filters.
First one (from left to right) – Mild HDR, Tobacco Grad + Reversed Blue Grad, Tobacco Grad + Solid Yellow (Larger here).
Second one (from left to right) – Tobacco Grad + Reversed Blue Grad, Solid Yellow + Blue Grad, Tobacco Grad + Solid Yellow (Larger here).
My favourite is probably Tobacco + Yellow Solid.
After we had dinner, the restaurant food was cheap, pretty fast and definitely edible. Plus it’s like eating in the middle of a jungle which is cool.

The other main choice is Sepilok Nature Resort, there isn’t that much difference – they are both walking distance to the Orang-Utan sanctuary.
I have to say though I have no complaints about Sepilok Jungle Resort, I’d stay there again no probs.
