How can George Chan's daughter make so much money to own it.
It is worth at least $250 to $300 million !

The military base is right in the middle of it. So, the federal government is involved in this piece of land too?

Great thread

Thanks for all your great comments and photos. This is a great source of information on Kuching.

Do people have suggestions for web sites to find rental condos and houses in Kuching? I have not been able to find only a tiny fraction of the online listings available for say Johor Bahru or Penang.

I think it is great how much passion people have about Kuching. In my opinion the only reason to compare to other cities is to see what might help Kuching (or any other city) be better. Every city has advantages and things to improve. And what is good in one city won't always be good in another. It is nice we have differences. I think the important thing is to focus on making your city better. Learning from what works in other cities is good. And so we should try and see what other cities do well and how we can adapt those ideas to our cities.

Rumors ? !! It is just very hard to investigate sensitive issue here due to controlled media.
I am in the trench here running my business and dealing with government from top to bottom everyday. Are you studying or working in Japan ? If you can, come back here, start a reasonable size business and you will see if it is real or rumors.

If any one of you know the boss of any large sand suppliers or head of Land and Survey Department, they might tell you about sand/gravel supply issues for the past few months involving you-know-who.


Good News ! Abu Dhabi smelter joins crowded space for Sarawak’s energy. But I hope they don't pollute Sarawak's rivers and air. We need to demand profit stay in Sarawak and not sucks out and leaving us with dirty environment and cheap jobs. Most of the profits will be made by those on the very top who don't need to breath Sarawak air and drink Sarawak's water.

Kuching to be promoted as geopark city — Dawos
Posted on June 20, 2011, Monday

PADAWAN: Ministry of Tourism will apply to the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco) for the rebranding of Kuching as a geopark city.

The ministry’s deputy minister Datuk Dr James Dawos Mamit when revealing this said upon approval, the city would be promoted as a geopark to attract more foreign tourists.

“Kuching is qualified to be recognised because there are many attractions such as the number of unique mountains available here.”

“Therefore, if it is approved, Kuching will be the second global geopark in the country after Langkawi,” he said.

Langkawi is the first in Malaysia and South East Asia recognised by Unesco in June 2007.

He said this to reporters after closing the Gawai Dayak celebration at Kampung Bra’ang Bayur, about 58 kilometres from here on Saturday night.

“Along Borneo Heights Road in Padawan here, there are many tourist spots that could be developed like mountains so that the local people can help to promote local tourism products.

“With this, they can also generate extra income if they wish to be involved part-time in the industry like bringing tourists for mountain climbing.

“I also encourage local people in my constituency to be involved in this industry which can give lucrative income as long as they are interested and committed to be successful,” Dawos, who is also Mambong MP, said.

Earlier, he officiated at the opening of a 500-metre road costing RM50,000 that leads to the village’s 18-door longhouse.

Dawos revealed that upgrading and maintenance work had begun in August to develop Kampung Panchor Dayak hot spring near Serian as a new attraction after the one at Kampung Anah Rais in Padawan.

He noted that under his constituency there were at least four hot spring spots that have become centres of attraction for local and foreign visitors.

“Another uniqueness of the area is the world’s biggest flower, Raflessia, and various species that can be found at Kampung Timurang at Jalan Borneo Height which had been identified as a destination for nature lovers.”

Also present were Padawan Municipal Council (MPP) deputy chairman Mohd Hashim Yap, village head Tora Jongsen and the villagers who later witnessed the closing of Gawai celebration at the longhouse.

I don't like to compare.. but KK has cleaner roads. As for infrastructures and commercial areas, I think both almost on par. Kuching maybe an old city, so maintaining it clean all the time is a bit more expensive that newer cities. I mean, c'mon.. KK is also old, but look at the buildings. It's very hard to see old shophouses in KK.

It's good also. Because Lea Centre is selling exhorbitantly expensive shoes. I think the best place to buy shoes in Kuching are not at Lea Centre.. they sucks big time anyway... I think the best place is SOS at Hock Lee. They have wide array of Scholl shoes.

I'm just being curious. I'm a Malay myself, but my origin is not Petra Jaya. Why the kampungs are being named after Indonesian names.. like Boyan, Gersik (in Indonesia, Gersek), Surabaya and Semarang? Were these people originated from Indonesia? Any Malays who live in that area can explain?
