Begonia cf phyrra
This sealing wax palm or lipstick palm,, Cyrtostachys renda is found abundantly in the peat swamp of Sarawak but human has destroyed most of them to plant oil palm from Africa.

Native women from Kalimantan Barat are carrying ginger roots & other agriculture product to walk across the border to Sarawak to sell it to local businessmen at the village near border. Salute to them for walking so many hours in the jungle just for earning a living.
