The Blue-banded Kingfisher Alcedo euryzona is probably the least common of the resident kingfishers in Borneo.  It prefers flowing clear rocky streams in hill forests which by themselves are increasingly harder to find.  It has the ability to stand in gentle flowing water, allowing it to perch on wet rocks while waiting for fish and other aquatic prey.  You would probably have more joy seeing this behavior after some rain when water levels are higher and fish are more active.
