Rum Shrinks Elephants

‘Rum Shrinks Elephants’ is a series of short travel stories, GM Spencer's account of his amateur exploration through forests up and down the mountains of Malaysia and Indonesia, told with joy, humour, and self-deprecation. On Bookmark, Umapagan Ampikaipakan speaks to George Spencer about his adventures, about how he came to live in our little corner of the world, and about what we Malaysians are missing by not stepping outside of our urban confines.
