Interesting info about the filming process

  • The food was mainly sponsored by a chicken rice shop and therefore, every meal was packed chicken rice. Those who worked there every day therefore had chicken rice every single day, unless they bought other things to eat themselves.
  • There was transport bringing people back and forth from Sekinchan every day. But the bus would leave from KL very, very early in the morning. Those who decided to stay in Sekinchan and not travel back to KL were given accommodations at the hotel. Unfortunately, the hotel did not have mosquito netting at the windows and there were a lot of mosquitoes there. It was cooling and windy at night but the crew had to close the hotel windows to prevent the mosquitoes from flying in. That made the room hot and uncomfortable to sleep in. Alternatively, they would go buy mosquito coils.
