Merry-Making on the <b>Sarawak</b> River Cruise, <b>Kuching</b>

Posted: 28 Sep 2011 04:20 AM PDT

Lovely young maidens, dancing fluidly to the beat of ethnic music; war-like cries of a warrior, moving fiercely with shield and spear in hand; and cheerful dancers in colourful traditional costumes, expressing the myriad blend of cultures and customs... these and more could be experienced first hand on the commendable Sarawak River Cruises at the Kuching Waterfront in the city of Kuching, Sarawak.

My friend was visiting from overseas and we decided to go on the Sarawak River Cruise. The fares for the nearly 2 hours sunset cruise, from 5.00pm to 7.00pm, were RM60 for an adult and RM30 for a child. "My Equatorial" was the name of the 120 feet by 20 feet double-decker cruise-ship we were getting on. Upon entering the gleaming white cruise-ship with its newly renovated interiors, we were soothed by piped-in sape music, a guitar-like traditional instrument of the Orang Ulu ethnic group. There were stairs leading up to the upper deck and we headed towards that direction.

Able to accommodate up to 200 people throughout, the lower-deck of the cruise-ship was entirely covered and air-conditioned with a dining lounge, a mini bar, karaoke entertainment and washrooms. The upper deck on the other hand was an open-air concept with a performance stage and a sheltered sightseeing deck, in case it rained I suppose. We were warmly greeted by the friendly staff on board, and later given welcoming cordial drinks and snacks of local kuehs (cakes) to munch on. I would agree that these were all the style, comfort and amenities you would need for a relaxing and enjoyable Sarawak River Cruise.

As the cruise-ship set off on its journey on the Sarawak River from the Kuching Waterfront, we chose to stay at the upper deck to appreciate the cool breeze and wonderful river views. Lively commentaries were intermittently made by the staff as we came upon the series of historical sites situated along the river. I must say that taking the Sarawak River Cruise was like taking a cruise into the history of Kuching, Sarawak, which was then juxtaposed with the modern development of the city.

We were in fact following the river path of the first White Rajah of Sarawak, Sir James Brooke, when he sailed up the Sarawak River, 173 years ago, in August 1838. Today, we could visually experience the contemporary and vibrant Kuching Waterfront, the new State Legislative Assembly building, hotels, condominiums amongst the skyline of Kuching City, the capital of Sarawak.

Then the past slowly emerged as we journeyed onwards, with the churning of the river waters on the Sarawak River Cruise. We began to observe with quiet wonder these historical landmarks: the Kuching State Mosque (1847), Malay villages of Kampung Boyan and Kampung Surabaya (1860), Main Bazaar (1864), Astana (1870), Old Court House (1874), Square Tower (1879), Fort Margherita (1879), Brooke Dockyard (1912), and Chinese Museum (1912).

Other interesting sights, which captured our attention, were Mount Santubong outlined by the glowing sunset, the Satok Bridge, the residence of the Chief Minister of Sarawak, an assortment of fishermen's boats tied leisurely near the river banks, and the numerous tambangs or water-taxis plying the waters of the Sarawak River.

In between the river sight-seeing, at times wandering from lower deck to upper deck, and checking out the karaoke songs, we were also entertained by vivacious multi-cultural dance performances on the stage. The cultural performances certainly enlivened the serene ambience of the cruise-ship, and added an additional dimension to the Sarawak River Cruise. Our feet were tapping and bodies moving to the rhythms of the pulsating music.

Surprisingly, I also found out that these daily sunset cruises could cater for private or corporate functions, educational tours, and special occasions such as birthday parties and weddings! One ship fits all, I guess; and "My Equatorial" was a good example of a luxury river cruise-ship in the making offering a range of services to individuals or groups.

Now, how was the Sarawak River Cruise? I would say that it had been an informative and engaging sunset cruise for us and a must-try for visitors.

Sebanaku <b>Sarawak</b>: Awang Tengah supports Abu Bekir for <b>...</b>

Posted: 11 Sep 2011 08:59 AM PDT

The chorus of support for Dato Sri Abu Bekir grows ever stronger with PBB Senior Vice President Yang Berhormat Dato Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan the latest to support him.  Now it is almost inevitable that Dato Sri Abu Bekir will be the BN candidate for Samarahan parliamentary constituency soon.  Being the son of the Chief Minister Dato Sri Abu Bekir would need no less than the post of PBB Youth Chief as his party platform.
Borneo Post September 9, 2011, Friday
KUCHING: Dato Sri Mahmud Abu Bekir Taib may be one of new faces to be fielded by PBB in the next general election.
PBB senior vice-president Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hassan said that beside Abu Bekir, the party was also "analysing the performance of our current MPs".
Tengah said, "I am very happy for him and I hope he is serious".
"I am happy for those young people who have enough experience and knowledge and what more to say a person such as Dato Sri Mahmud Abu Bekir Taib who comes from a well-known political family," Awang Tengah told the media at his Hari Raya open house here on Wednesday.
On a related issue, Awang Tengah, who is also Second Minister of Planning and Resource Management said that in each election, PBB would continue to rejuvenate the party to remain relevant by fielding only winnable candidates.
PBB, as the backbone of the state BN, is allocated with 14 parliamentary seats, while SUPP is allocated seven, PRS (six) and SPDP (four).
"In every election, PBB has new faces to include the young and professionals. This is one way to inculcate the leadership skills and to ensure continuity in the party," he said.
When asked how many new faces PBB would field in the next general election, he said, "the time will come for us to decide".
"However, we are actually analysing the performance of our current MPs and if need be, we will have new faces for the coming general election," he added.

Educate public on childhood cancer — Mawan | BorneoPost Online <b>...</b>

Posted: 27 Sep 2011 06:19 PM PDT

Posted on September 28, 2011, Wednesday

GREENING THE ENVIRONMENT: Salahuddin planting a fruit tree at the premises of SCCS's Children Cancer Centre yesterday. Looking on (from second left) are Mawan, Ho and Norkiah.

KUCHING: The government wants Sarawak Children's Cancer Society (SCCS), a non-governmental organisation (NGO), to educate people on childhood cancer.

"With your experience and networking among affected children and families, we hope you could assist by educating the public on this affliction," said Social Development and Urbanisation Minister Tan Sri William Mawan.

He was speaking at a tree planting ceremony and laying of the foundation stone for the new SCCS' Children Cancer Centre at Taman Desa Wira yesterday.

The 1.36 acre land was allocated to SCCS in recognition of its role in educating the public and supporting affected families.

He said families of children with cancer were giving back to society by providing "emotional and moral support to other families".

Mawan said a number of families who had children with cancer did not refer them to the Sarawak General Hospital (SGH) as they did not know anyone in the city and cannot afford to stay there. Hence the new centre would act as their home while the child underwent treatment.

The ceremony was officiated by Head of State Tun Datuk Patinggi Abang Muhammad Salahuddin; his wife Toh Puan Datuk Patinggi Norkiah was also present. They planted three trees at the site, including a durian tree.

SCCS president Gary Ho said the event marked the day the society's dream of having a permanent children cancer centre come true.

"We will always remember Tun Datuk Patinggi's special interest in the well-being of our children and the development of our society since 2004, when he and Toh Puan launched our centre at Jalan Maxwell," he said.

Ho added that funds for the RM2.6 million centre came from fundraising efforts like their Charity Food Fair, 'Go Bald' Campaign and other direct donations.

According to SCCS building head and past president Raymond Thong, construction of the centre was expected to be completed by next year.

"The building is 40 per cent completed and will have a maximum of 20 bedrooms," he said.

It will house a reception office, general office, meeting room, caretaker room, living room, dining room, common kitchen, multi-purpose room and other support facilities.

Also present at the ceremony were SCCS's new advisor Datuk Lorna Enan Muloon, her husband Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr George Chan, and Padawan Municipal Council chairman Lo Khere Chiang.

Abu Seman tells Chinese to tap SCORE&#39;s potential | BorneoPost <b>...</b>

Posted: 27 Sep 2011 06:45 PM PDT

Posted on September 28, 2011, Wednesday

COLOURFUL CULTURE: Abu Seman (centre) leads the procession around the town. At second left is Habari and at second right, Teo.

MATU: Jemoreng assemblyman Abu Seman Jahwie has called on the Chinese community here to preserve and promote their distinctive culture and tradition so that the younger generation would not forget them.

The promotion of racial culture can enhance unity and harmony among Malaysians, consistent with the 1Malaysia concept, he said when opening Pesta Gee Sii Kong here on Monday. The festival, organised by the Chinese community here, was also attended by Matu District Officer Habari Bakar and Penghulu Teo Huat.

"The Chinese should be proud that their culture has been assimilated into the colourful Malaysian culture which is a catalyst for our unity, progress and prosperity," said Abu Seman, who is also a political secretary to the Chief Minister.

He called on the community to grab the huge business spin-offs brought about by Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) and Tanjung Manis Halal Hub development initiatives.

"Businesses here (Matu) have almost reached the peak. As such, it is imperative that local businessmen, Bumi and non-Bumi, venture into industries in SCORE and Tanjung Manis Halal Hub where business opportunities are aplenty," he said.

Among the highlights of the festival were a  procession around the town, fireworks display and cultural show.
