Summary of the my Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia trip

By on March 15, 2015 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

I enjoyed being back in Sibu. I had correctly remembered how good the night market was, and it still was – a classic example of a Malaysian night market. What I had forgotten was the brilliant day/covered market. Fantastic. It was good to go back and check out the Chinese temple again. It is certainly […]

Leaving Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

By on March 15, 2015 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

Leaving Sibu, was, well, weird. There was a ‘final call for boarding’ message some nearly 90-minutes before our planned take-off, there were no further messages about boarding or a gate changes. I picked up on the last minute change by luck and the plane took off 15 minutes early. I don’t think I’ve ever been on […]

The Sibu Bagel – Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

This is a Sibu Bagel…. Considerably smaller than what I would think of as a bagel, but surprisingly it tastes like a bagel, and has the texture of a bagel. All it needs is toasting and some cream cheese…. If you have enjoyed this article then please feel free to share it using the buttons […]

More on the WiFi at the RH Hotel, Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

By on March 15, 2015 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

It appears that at the RH you need a WiFi code for each device you wish to connect, and for each WiFi hotspot you wish to connect to… This is not exactly very convenient. I now have a code for my phone and laptop, and I can only use the phone in the lobby, and […]

The Sibu night market (again) – Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

Tonight is my last night in Sibu and an evening in Sibu wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the local Sibu night market…. (I do like a good night market). This will second time I have been to this market on this trip. The Sibu night market starts when it is still light, i.e. around […]

The Sibu covered market (day) – Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

The covered market is particularly good, and sadly this time I got to it a little last and most of the stalls were closed or closing. One problem I have in the markets is I don’t recognise a lot of the things on sale… For example, what are these? I hate to say it, but […]

Chinese Temple – Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

Down near the river front in Sibu is a fantastic Chinese temple that is certainly worth a look. Offerings being burnt – I am not sure what these are or what they symbolise. I did ask but didn’t really get an answer. “Guards” at the gate of the temple. Really liked the little tree house […]

Around town – Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

Sibu is an interesting town. It is old or feels old, in parts, but new in others. There seems to have been times of prosperity when significant investment occurred, but now it feels a little run down. It is certainly isolated, and at the same time connected as it is a major river port where […]

Not on the WiFi at RH Hotel, Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

By on March 14, 2015 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

Well, it looks like I spoke too soon (see Finally on the WiFi at RH Hotel, Sibu, Sarawak). As soon as I left the manager in the lobby and moved to another part of the hotel, the WiFi stopped working, and my phone would not connect to the Internet. It would connect to the hot […]
