Summary of the my Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia trip

By on March 15, 2015 in General, Malaysia with 0 Comments

I enjoyed being back in Sibu. I had remembered how good the night market was, and it still is, 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 worth a look. The river is still very busy and […]

Leaving Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

By on March 15, 2015 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

Well, that was weird. There was a ‘final call’ for boarding message some nearly 90 minutes before our planned take-off, we then got no message about bordering or a gate change, we picked up on a last minute change by luck and the plane took off 15 minutes early. 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 covered market (day) – Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

One of the things I really like in Malaysian towns, and I seem to find the best of these over in East Malaysia, are the markets – both the covered (day) markets and the night markets – and Sibu has two great examples. The covered market is particularly good, and sadly this time I got […]

The river in Sibu is a big part of the life of the town as Sibu is a port for the movement and transport of goods and people in to the interior of the island. Boats used to ship goods up the river. Fast ‘torpedo’ boats are used to move passemgers up and down the […]

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

By on March 14, 2015 in General, Malaysia with 0 Comments

Well, looks like I spoke too soon. 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 spot, but wouldn’t issue a password request, even with cellular data […]
