Greetings to all Tropical Lovers,

First and foremost, a million thanks (or "terima kasih" as we say it here in sunny Sabah) for taking your time to read this milestone newsletter - the first edition of Tropical Vacation Borneo Newsletter (TVBN).

For readers who are more familiar with e-borneo.com, the TVBN can be said to be a revival of the Travel Borneo Newsletter that we used to publish many years ago (i.e., the last edition was dated August 2003). So, if you have been our past subscribers, a special welcome back to you.

For new subscribers, borneo-tropical-vacation.com is one of the sister sites of e-borneo.com. The TVBN will focus primarily on Sabah, but will also touch on Borneo as a whole, as the best kept tropical vacation secret of the new millennium.

As the editor of the TVBN, I hope that the newsletter will be both informative and entertaining for all Borneo and tropical vacation lovers, as well as a resource to help with the planning of your vacation to Sabah in specific and Borneo in general, and/or simply to get to know more about Sabah from a local perspective.

Rest assured that We will continuously strive to improve this newsletter. If you have any suggestion on how we can improve the TVBN, please feel free to contact us.

Looking forward to your strong support.

Warmest regards,

Rich Adz (editor) and the TVBN Team
