I received some updates from our friends in KL-based unis on the questions of how outsiders had access to specimens from Malaysia.
One of them is like so:
Provide some huge fund.
Use local vendors to buy specimens from locals.
Vendors collect specimens and pay locals.
After some times of accumulation, guys or their worms enter Malaysia using tourist visa.
They acquire the specimens and quickly fly back as quickly as quick tourist will be and...
People would think it will be difficult for midgets to get things out from Malaysia - because the checks at airports are sooooo intimidating. Believe you me, the real problem is actually to collect the bloody specimens.
Just a note to you guys, be a little more vigilant - for all you know, the specimens they are getting are of your own interests.
