Then after Labuan I will fly to Miri on 1st of July and will be there till 6th July 2007.
Read about it here.
Balik ke Miri ini, kedai makan bukan tak ada tetapi rasa was-was sikit. Orang Sarawak jangan marah. Bagi seorang Islam, makan-minum adalah merupakan perkara yang paling dijaga. Pernah ingat masa zaman muda dahulu sewaktu bertugas di Kota Marudu, Sabah, ada sekor ayam masuk rumah. Tak tahu ayam siapa. Aku dan kawan-kawan ambil keputusan untuk tangkap sahaja. Pendek kata curilah ayam tu. Walaupun ayam curi, kami sembelih sebelum masak dan makan. Tengok……
Jalan hampir setengah jam. Bila jumpa kedai, mereka dalam proses mencuci dan hendak tutup. Last-last jumpa one kedai yang sedang bersedia nak buka – Ming Cafe. Ada nasi tetapi masa sampai nasi belum masak, baharu lauk sahaja yang tersedia. Yang ada hanya murtabak. Jadi kami pesan murtabak saja. Murtabak pun mengenyangkan juga. Bulan puasa murtabak adalah hidangan wajibku setiap kali hendak berbuka.
Di Ming Cafe, sebiji harga RM3.50. Kira tebal juga. Alamak, aku makan tak habis pula.
Pictures taken from my room. During my stay the morning are quite hazy but is a bit clear from noon onward. However the sky is not so clear as the picture of the sun shows that the hace turn it inot just a bright ball.
I stayed at Dynasty Hotel in Miri (as in my previous post). Room 810 from 30th October to 3rd of November 2006. Well, I would like to expose of one honest housekeeping staff. The staff I would like to hightlight is “Faridah” if I am not wrong (as she told me). She was doing housekeeping on 31st Oct 2006.
After the management came and open the door, I enter and found the RM 550 intact on the table Oh, Gosh. If she were to have taken the money, I wouldn’t know about it because I did not remember putting it there the previous night.
I would like to compliment her for her honesty and hope the hotel management will take that honesty into account for employee of the year award.
Besides the honest staff, I would like give a good grade for all the friendly staff right from the driver, bell boys, receptionist and even the Acting Hotel Manager whom I first met in 1997 when I first stayed there. I’ve stayed in many hotels in Malaysia and had never had the opportunity to talk to any managers.
Food?. If the hotel is not a 5 Star, I am giving the Rosita Cafe a 5 star rating for the delicious food served. Food is very tasty and all my colleague who were together, give the thumb up to the Chef (I think he is) who walks around during every meal time and thats a good practice. He can see the satisfied faces of guests and diners.
Well, if you are visiting Miri, I would recommend you staying there.
