Last semester, my school LEO club received student exchange from Japan and they stayed with us for 3 weeks. Vice versa, our students went to Japan at the end of the year to stay with LEO host families. If i’m not mistaken student exchange has been going on every year around KK LEO club. 

Joining the student exchange is really “yek tou lei” because you get to stay at other places and all accommodation and food is provided. Unfortunately, i never really have the right timing to join any student exchange to over sea. When they were here in Sabah we brought them to Lok Kawi Zoo to have a looking at our exotic wildlife only can be found in Borneo. Lok Kawi zoo held more than 100 over species of animal. 

One of the main attraction is the Proboscis monkey aka Bayau. Proboscis monkey lives beside the mangrove river tree and only feed on certain leaves. Their unique dietary habits leave them no choice but to feed on the particular leave and would get poison if they feed on other types of leave. The face of proboscis monkey is unique from other monkey species because they have long nose.
