浮羅交怡衛理公會禧年堂 Langkawi Chinese Methodist Church

座落在浮羅交怡”瓜”鎮--Kuah Town主要大路旁,距離快艇碼頭只須5分鐘車程的衛理公會禧年堂,是靠近Grand Continental酒店,在路旁商店背後一排.它的周圍是浮羅交怡的”紅燈區”,衛理教會成為這里的”光和鹽”. this is Langkawi Chinese Methodist Church, surrounded by bars, night clubs and restaurants. you can see a lot of Thailand girls in and out.

在這里是舉行周五崇拜,因為浮羅交怡是吉打州,這個州屬周四是他們的周末,周五沒有工作.各間教會也都在這一天,配合大家沒有工作時間,舉行崇拜.禧年堂在晚上8時開始崇拜.教堂內部後面,讓兒童舉行主日學,他們是在下午進行主日學.晚上成年主日崇拜時,孩童在教堂內填色.

Sibu in the flood again!! 詩巫--可愛的水鄉

管你詩巫改成甚麼名,就是不能改變它的"水鄉"命運.這邊在建大水溝,那邊漲大水,一拍即合.英本巷路口附近的漲水情況. now, suddenly you realize, even the construction of big big drainage system, is of no help to the flooding situation. yah lah, the drain project has not completed, don't comment first.
汪汪拉讓江水,是詩巫的母親河,應該充份利用和發揮它的美麗一面.不要被"錢"沖昏了頭腦.建水溝,只是賺錢的另一個把戲. the mother nature has something to say...depletion of forest, construction of dams, help hasten the soil erosion.

南蘭律漲水情況. situation at Lanang road.
汽車,電單車行不通,步行也是一項很好的享受. no cars, walking is good to you, especially in the water.

Sibu Town Square Extension --we support 詩巫城市廣場擴建--我們支持

詩巫城市廣場前面的江面擴建,實地調查,並不影響水上有限的交通量.它的河面確實很闊大,填土擴建部份,根本就無所謂江面,因為是淤泥,船隻不能使用.即使建boat club的遊艇停泊處,也無傷大雅. the extension of Sibu Town Square should be supported by everyone in this town. for the ordinary folks like you and me, we have nothing, we get nothing, but we will be benefited from the better walk way, better environment, or even another mega mall coming up near the river. if we object to it, may be we'll get nothing, otherwise, we at least enjoy the modern living experience  in this small town.
工程已進行中. work on the extension is underway.
有人說,為了顧及電單車小渡輪,每天上千人的使用量,所以反對擴建城市廣場.當局應以古晉河濱園的江邊為例,繼續建造小渡輪停泊點,讓往返兩岸的電單車,工作人員,學生的方便. everyday, over thousand workers, students, and village folks making use of this small ferry across the river. we should instead, support the continue of this type of ferry service, which is part of our daily life for many years, and is a life style and culture of our society, just like sampans across the Sarawak River.
這項服務是拉讓江的一個重要文化遺產,是這里人民生活的面貌.給予保留是很適當的事. ferry like this should continue its invaluable service... this is part of our life.

詩巫需要建更多道路 Sibu need more roads

詩巫是不是需要改名,並不是民生問題.不必勞師動眾.
詩巫需要建更多道路,這則是必須努力去爭取的.華團應該在這一方面也做出一點努力.
黃景和路已達飽和狀態,車輛快要跑不動了.這件事煩請華團多出一點力量爭取.
阿曼路應該及早延伸至烏也路一帶.
沒有人關心,沒有人提出.
居住在這一帶的人,天天為”爭路”而忙.
whether Sibu need to change its Chinese name or not, really not an important issue. rather, UCA need to put more effort, asking for better and more roads for Sibu. Wong King Ho road, for example, is to its full capacity, more and more vehicles using the only road. extension should be done to Aman road, divert traffic to Oya road.
residents at the surrounding areas are feeling bad about the situation not rectified.
please build more roads for Sibu.

3間霸市明年詩巫開業 3 Mega Malls operating in Sibu next year

由古晉著名建築公司--楊桂林建築有限公司規划的敦阿末再迪路發展區,其初期發展藍圖.

這個地點也被規划為詩巫一個新的交通樞杻,供羅厘車和其他公共車輛停放地點.

with the development of Emart, Star Mega Mall and Giant in Sibu, the consumer business in this riverine town of the Rajang, is going to see a big change. Star Mega Mall is to open in July, next year. so too is the Giant. while Emart is expected to be readied by the end of next year.
隨著各大商行紛紛在詩巫展開商業開發工程,包括本土企業家劉義華的大星霸級市場明年七月落成,巨人霸級市場也預定於明年同時間開業.
座落敦阿末再迪路(沙廉通向飛機場路)的一塊300依甲土地,剛剛在月前完成了清芭的工作.
路人對於一夜之間,在連接聖陶沙徙殖區和木杰立麻森林公園旁的這塊土地的開拓,莫不感到好奇和雀躍.
這塊300依甲土地,是屬於古晉一間著名基本設施開發公司,主要是道路開發--楊桂林建築有限公司(Jong Kui Ling Construction Sdn. Bhd.)所擁有.
古晉馬當E mart夜景.
        E mart詩巫開業
這片土地的發展區,消息稱,最主要的投資商,將是目前在尼亞石山鎮,美里,以及古晉馬當都有開業的新時代模式市場中心--E Mart做為主軸.
E mart是由詩巫另一位本地企業家吳頂世所擁有.這間兼具超級市場,零售,和菜市場及飲食的綜合性中心,將是一項符合地方需求的營業概念.
吳氏的超級市場和E mart,在尼亞石山路口營業多年,美里和古晉馬當的E mart營業前景良好,廣受地方民眾的歡迎.

E mart將設址敦阿末再迪路旁,一塊300依甲土地上.

這間超級零售中心建成後,詩巫將同時間冒現3間大型市場.
另一間設址林開臻路(德聖路一帶)的Giant”巨人霸級市場”,其建設工程刻在如火如荼進行中.

大星霸級市場建造工程如火如荼進行中.預定明年七月開張.
       大星拓展市場業務
預定明年七月開業的「大星霸級市場」,已經全面展開了招商工作.
這間市場總面積為8萬5,000方公尺,樓高4層,包括地下層.它同時提供3,600方公尺的空間,做為大型展銷會用途.
大星霸級市場的二樓和三樓,主要是做為本身用途.底樓和地下層,則供做出租用途.地下層同時將做為車輛停放地點,可容納200輛車.露天停車場則可同時停放800輛汽車,和350輛電單車.
有消息稱,為了配合未來發展的需求,大星霸級市場周圍的地點,都已被划定做為發展用途.
           商場帶動詩巫發展
毫無疑問,近年來,詩巫近郊屋業開始大量發展.大型商場如大星霸級市場,巨人霸級市場,及E Mart,都很正面的推動和助長了詩巫的成長.
屋業發展中,以商場的建設最具推波助瀾的作用.
這些大型商場周圍的土地,紛紛被發展商看中做為未來發展的目標地點.

巨人霸級市場工程也在積極施工.明年,將是詩巫商業發展非常不同的一個年頭.

迹像顯示,在過去,沙廉地區的華麗超級市場和星光百貨的建設,令到一時之間,屋業在這個地區百花齊放,一片欣欣向榮.
福平實業在英雄路的商業中心發展,也帶動了附近地區大興土木.
如今看來,詩巫未來的發展,將趨向於飛機場路的東姑阿都拉曼路一帶.
唯商業和屋業的大量發展,還需要當局在基本設施上加把勁.目前詩巫的道路發展,是處在一個相對不理想的情況中.非但新路沒有建造,即有道路的維修和提升,也是乏善可陳的.

-Sungai Apong crossing 橫過順溪阿本河

古晉市中心,仍然還需要這種小舢舨載送兩岸搭客橫過河到對岸.這是順溪阿本一景. this is a scene at Sungai Apong, Kuching. in the heart of this city, you'll be surprise sambang like this remains an important part of the daily life of many, crossing over the small river.

- 特色古晉:汽車停放商店走廊 only Kuching have it--cars park outside the shops

look at it, don't you feel it is funny to park your cars this way, just outside the shops?  古晉有一些很特別的文化,例如將汽車停放商店正前面.
closer look, this is the place for people to walk, not really for cars. what do you think? this is Kuching , you know!! 看清楚,這是五腳基也...是給行人使用的.不是停車.
