Here’s some of the recommendations.

The Grang Old Lady is located at Canada Hill. Canada Hill is also known as Bukit Telaga Minyak by the locals and it is popular for its first oil well drilled – The Grand Old Lady. The Grand Old Lady is Miri’s first drilled oil and it is one of Miri’s many main places of interest.

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) – I am currently curating an assignment with @natgeoyourshot entitled “EPIC," inviting you to use your photography as a creative canvas to express your understanding of the word ‘ EPIC’ and how it can be portrayed in a single image. This photograph captures a time and place that to me has left a lasting memory of being truly epic. I remember in 2005, when I was part of a team that discovered this huge underground chamber in Whiterock in Sarawak, Malaysia (pictured). We were super excited! Our first thoughts were to shout out loud to hear the echo. It took six seconds for the echo from our initial shout to fade, hit the far wall, then bounce back to us. Even though we couldn’t see anything, we knew immediately from the echo that this was a huge room. It was epic! A few days later, we came back and split up into two teams and surveyed around the perimeter walls. From one side of the chamber, I remember looking down several giant piles of rocks and boulders and in the distance we could just see four tiny figures, our teammates mapping the other side. They were several hundred feet away. We had Shine On You Crazy Diamond by Pink Floyd playing from some small speakers in the top of one guys backpack. It was surreal and very epic. An extremely proud and emotional memory. Can you spot all four figures in this photograph firing off flashbulbs to illuminate the cave?
