One Evening at the Kuching Waterfront

Kuching is my hometown. Legend has it that the name was derived from the Malay word 'kucing' for cats. Some other may buy the idea of the name from an old well, of which the pronunciation in Mandarin is 'gu-jing' (古井).

Well, wherever the name comes from, I still love Kuching as it is, the people, the food and the slow pace of life here.


At dusk, the boat people are still busy carrying the passengers on the penampang (sampan or rowing boat) across the Sarawak River.


Kuching was awarded the title of "Good Practices of Healthy Cities 2006" and "Pioneers in Healthy Cities 2006" by the Alliance for Healthy Cities (AFHC). This was the second time succeeding from the titles in 2002.


The sun has started to set and gave an afterglow as the last light of the day.


The sky started to burn in flame.


And all the clouds were burning!



When the sunlight was dimmed, the street lights were glowing.


The artificial lighting couldn't reach for the sky.


The Kuching Waterfront is filled with 5-star hotels.


Taking a slow stroll along the waterfront can ease you from a hard day's work and unwind your mind.
