So how would a camp manager get his supply of Sunkist oranges?
After reading the post today you would have to re-examine your idea of "Express Post" - Baram Style.
By Express Boat's special delivery! Here you can witness how the special delivery goes.
I saw this "home made" speed boat coming out of a small distributary as our express boat slowed down a little.
This guy yelled out..."packet...packet..packet".
The ticket collector suddenly remembered the plastic bag of Sunkists. There was no name and no address on the plastic bag.
The speed boat left with the oranges...
The lovely waves made by the speed boat...the happy driver seemed to be making a triumphant retreat. Mission accomplished.
Life is just so simple - someone sends a bag of sunkists and it will get picked up..This has been going on for more than 30 years. And I believe there is no charge. Pos Laju may have to rethink its services. The Camp Manager thus received his Sunkists within 2 hours from Miri. How express can this express post be!! And due to the honesty of the passengers not one fruit was taken out of the bag.
I really like that.
++ Sunkists - In Sarawak the term Sunkists is synonymous with the imported navel oranges from the Mediterranean countries and the US (and now China). Originally the word Sunkist was printed on each fruit. The locals having no word for this glorious orange fruit just called it Sunkist and the name got stuck. We would never call the green local orange (or limau) sunkist...
