Heres a snippit from a Borneo Holiday Book

Next we will visit the Venice of the East in BORNEO… A water village (Kampung Air) that has been in continuous habitation since 1521 depicting a traditional lifestyle in stilt houses built over the Brunei River although most of the inhabitants enjoy modern facilities

Gdynia, I do apologise, I have just seen the holiday page you speak of. Seems my information is incorrect. My info comes from, "The land of the head hunters".
The quiz question say's: Which town has been called the "Venice of Borneo"?
Answer: "Pontianak" because-like Venice-it is built on piles
You get that one.

Dom. You are near enough to have this one. Answer is : A sabre used by the Dayaks to cut down trees.

Can you find answer to Q.1 & 4.
