Coffee at the Bread Sense Bakery, Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

After such a poor breakfast at the RH Hotel (see Breakfast at the RH Hotel, Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia) I popped across the road to get a coffee at Bread Sense which is an interesting little shop selling tea, coffee, cakes, bread, buns and snacks. Well worth checking out particularly if you are staying at the […]

Finally on the WiFi at RH Hotel, Sibu, Sarawak

By on March 14, 2015 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

I ended up speaking to the manage at the RH Hotel and he told me how to get on the WiFi. Get the manager to restart the system. Turn off cellular data on your phone. Restart your phone. Select the WiFi hotspot with the strongest signal. Using your browser go to http://1.1.1.1 When the page […]

My favourite shop in Sibu, Sarawak – Central Scientific Co.

OK, so by training I’m a scientist and I am a sucker for scientific gear, particularly glassware, so when I see a shop like this I just have to stop and look. They have a great display of beakers, flasks and measuring cylinders in the window. But sadly the rest of the store behind the […]

Breakfast at the RH Hotel, Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

Yep, there was no change in the quality of the RH Hotel breakfast since my last visit. The tea was still grey and tasteless, the orange juice was still orange in colour and I seriously doubt it had been anywhere near an orange (the fruit). There was no cereal unless you like cornflakes or high […]

Back at the RH Hotel, Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

I’m back at the RH Hotel in Sibu, which is where I stayed last year (see The RH Hotel in Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia). The place hasn’t changed. Checkin was painfully slow, and the WiFi still doesn’t work in the rooms. One weird thing. I think I am in the same room as on my last […]

The Night Market, Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

Just got back from the local night market (on every night) in Sibu. I visited the market last year (see Exploring Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia – The Night Market), and it was great to be back to have a look around, and to try some of the food on offer. There are tons of different food […]

Sibu Airport (SBW), Sarawak, Malaysia

By on March 13, 2015 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

This is the second time I’ve been to Sibu… My last visit was in April 2014. One significant change I noticed at the airport was that they have moved the car rental kiosks from inside the arrivals area to the main part of the airport building. This makes sense to me as last time I […]

On the road again – Johor Bahru Airport (JHB; Senia) to Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

Off on a trip to Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia. The first problem of the trip – Air Asia has changed over to some sort of weird double check-in thing at the airport. I’ve already checked in online and now there is another check-in thing at the airport where you have to check-in and print your luggage […]

The RH Hotel in Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

By on April 20, 2014 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

I stayed in the RH for four nights and wasn’t overly impressed. The breakfast was very poor, a lot of the food was not that hot, and the choice wasn’t that great. Even the orange juice was odd (it was orange and very sweet, and I doubt it had been near an orange!). The room […]
