Another Kuching snapshot, uploaded in the time I should be rushing to finish my story for the day, so here I go, back to my daily writing!

Kuching Snapshots: Carnivorous Plants

I’m wondering if I should use this photo as a writing prompt. But then today is the sort of day when I don’t need any prompting, stuff would flow if I put pen to paper. Colour of the ink I’m using: green.

If you look at the photo, the stuff hanging on top is my writing for today, and the one making a go for it, is me…

Bamboo Walkway at the Sarawak Cultural Vilage

The tribals of Sarawak, East Malaysia, create bamboo walkways to cross over muddy areas, just like this one at the Sarawak Cultural Village.

Sarawak Cultural Village hosts a Rainforest World Music Festival each year, a great tourist attraction and a major draw for music lovers. You can find a realistic account of the festival at this blog.

In real life news, apart from my Kuching snapshots, it is back to the daily grind of work, more work, and more work.

I still have to get into the 2010 mode, but what the heck, I’m trying. Off to write my daily count, and hopefully hit a 1000 words. Thinking of taking part in THIS project. Wish me luck!

Crocodiles in the Sarawak River

I had no idea the Sarawak river was home to big crocodiles, up to 15 feet long. Here, a crocodile stalks its food at lunchtime at a crocodile farm.

Writing and Blogging in the New Year

Back to work, even though it is a weekend. Kuching was such a laze-fest I have a lot of catching up to do. Let’s hope I get some writing done as well.

Writing from Kuching, Sarawak on New Year’s Day


I tried all of yesterday to remember what I did last New Year, and came up with nothing…nada. Must have been a quiet new year, or I’m growing really old. I remember the year before that, was a quiet one again, in Singapore, watching the flares go up from the ships on the bay.

New year in Kuching began a little ominously, police clad variously in orange camouflage and black diving gear are patrolling the Sarawak river for a 17-yr old boy, the victim of a drowning accident.

I’m trying to keep a smiling, positive face to the view from my window, from where the police boats are clearly visible.

Posting below a video I took of a Sarawakian tribal dance from the Sarawak Cultural Village…I shot it on a normal digital, so apologies for the quality, but I hope it gives you an idea of the dance and costumes:
