One of the most peaceful moments I ever had was during a visit to Pulau Tiga. There with a small bunch of friends we headed down to the pier near the chalets where it was deserted, the only illumination came from several spotlights at the bottom of the pier. We all laid back on the wooden surface and looked up into the sky, there without much light pollution we saw the greatest collection of stars littering the night sky, coupled with the chirps and shrill of the nocturnal insects. It was so quiet we literally could hear ourselves think, the solitude gave a great atmosphere to let yourself be sucked into the bigger picture and think without distractions. Pulau Tiga, Sabah, Malaysia, 2004.
