We came across this when we descended from PB111, after passing a small cemetery, it's the junction of a path and the road leading downhill to the public lavatory of Nam Pin Wai.
Before going down, we went up a little bit for the gate of a farm, before reaching it, this stone caught my eye on the right of the dirt track.
