Sunday, July 7th, 2013

The capital of the East Malaysian State of Sarawak, Kuching, has some rather unusual pieces of architecture, the recently completed DUN Sarawak being one. Another is the Catholic Cathedral of St. Joseph, consecrated in 1969 as St. Joseph’s Church, replacing a much older Neo-Gothic style church (Read more...)

A nighttime view across the Sarawak River from Kuching of The Astana, now used as the official residence of the Governor of Sarawak. The palace was built by Charles Brooke, the second White Rajah of Sarawak for his wife, Margaret, as a wedding gift – although she is said to have spent much of (Read more...)

The DUN across the river

Saturday, June 29th, 2013

This post is a reprint of a post by Jerome Lim, The Wondering Wanderer that originally appeared at The Long and Winding Road.

The wonderfully blue skies over the capital of the East Malaysian State of Sarawak, Kuching and one of its iconic landmarks, the State Legislative Assembly or Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Sarawak Building across the Sarawak River from the city makes for a perfect picture postcard scene. The nine stor (Read more...)

Paradise found?

This post is a reprint of a post by Jerome Lim, The Wondering Wanderer that originally appeared at The Long and Winding Road.

Not quite what I would consider to be paradise, but the Damai Puri Resort sure does look close enough to being one – at least in the off-season. Located at Teluk Penyuk Santubong, some 30 kilometres north of Kuching, the resort does apparently get crowded during the peak season and the best ti (Read more...)

Fairy Cave

This post is a reprint of a post by Jerome Lim, The Wondering Wanderer that originally appeared at The Long and Winding Road.

An amazing sight close to Kuching in Sarawak not far from the Bau gold mining area is this huge cave opening into Fairy Cave. It does take a bit of effort getting up the flight of 200 steps to the entrance to the cave, but it is certainly all worth the effort …

Coco Chanel once said, ““Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”

At 1:14 on a fine Wednesday near Kuching, with a view north to the South China Sea, I am writing this short pi (Read more...)

This post is a reprint of a post by PHM that originally appeared at donkeytales.

There wasn't enough time to do Lintang trek so we walked two shorter trails - Telok Paku and Pandan Kecil. We saw wild boars and quite a number of proboscis monkeys crashing through the trees along the first trail. We encountered one proboscis monkey moving past on land, less than 10m away. It was t (Read more...)

Since Rafflesia was not in bloom, we went to see orang utans. I don't remember I've ever seen one before back home because I never knew they are sluggish, solitary but intelligent primates.

Singgahsana Lodge, Kuching, Malaysia

This post is a reprint of a post by kianhong that originally appeared at KianHong Photography.

I went to Kuching, Sarawak in East Malaysia last month and stay in a lodge for 2 nights. I love it, love it, and love it! Though it could be better, the hits make the misses looked almost irrelevant. The deco is great. The vibe is just amazing. We love every single moment here in [...]
