One view of Sibu Airport.

This is the new Kuching Airport after being renovated. My flight made a stopover and its my first time here after the renovation. When I came to Kuching in December 2006 it was still under renovation. Upon entering this waiting lounge, I remember the environment is just like the Macau International Airport.

SMC new market

SMC new market house farmers harvest where they can sell them to make a living. You can find all sorts of kampung vegetables, shoots, fruits, and even the sago worm.

The Sibu Gateway at night

These are cargo boats used to transport cargo to remote towns since most of these towns are inaccessible by land. So they are trailers and container trucks here in Sarawak.

Swan Town or Swallow?

I found out one interesting feature while walking along the Rajang River along the old jetty. There are thousands of swallow flying and the sign of their long presence are theier nest built on buildings. I wonder why there so many swallows in Sibu.

When I was in my hometown Alor Setar, there use to be many swallow and everynight you have to be careful if you walk under the electrical wires overhead because you might me hit by their droppings. And their presence actually create a nuisance. They are noisy and their droppings makes the streets, buildings, cars and everything on the ground looks so dirty. Just don;t know how Alor Setar got rid of the swallows.

However swallow are found in many towns when they come and sleepat night.
The three pictures above was taken at the row of buildings along the Rajang riverfront. Swallow nest were found under roofings and notice how they dirty the building with their droppings.
