Meet Me At Meet D’Brown

Meet D' Brown

The times they are a-changin. Dylan wrote the song as a deliberate attempt to create an anthem of change for the time. The times they are a-changin too in Miri.

A Visit To The Kuala Baram Wetlands

Beautiful, isn't it?

I have read about the wetlands being a bird-watching sanctuary as it is a haven for winter migrating birds. From Senadin, we drove to the Asean Bridge. After passing the Asean Bridge, we took the left exit at the roundabout, ...

I Luv “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin

"Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin

I would rank “Stairway To Heaven” by English rock band Led Zepellin as my No.1 favorite rock song. It was released in late 1971 when I was in Form 2 at Kai Chung Middle School in Binatang but I was not a fan of rock music at that time. The song became my favourite when I was in Canada as ...

Street Art in Miri

Gua Niah , hornbill and Malay girl in sampan

I find street art rather fascinating and have made it a point to visit street art venues in places that I visit. I particularly like the street art of Melbourne and Penang but I find the street art on the walls of Ta Kiong Emporium in Sibu rather disappointing. I drive by Miri Heritage Centre almost every day and have ...

Retirement

Have a Kit Kat!

Retirement. To many, retirement is a destination. To me, it isn’t. It is the start of a new journey where a new phase of my life begins! Retirement…time to chill the proverbial beans, smell the roses, have a break, have a Kit Kat. Maybe two.
