      Let's keep it real. The fact as it stands is that Sibu finally has a big hole in the ground, which certain quarters claim is where the soon-to-be-world-class-and-world-famous UNIVERSITY COLLEGE will be. A university college is not a full university.

      If the establishment of this university college has already been approved, as certain quarters like to claim repeatedly in public, then why haven't they backed up their claim with evidence that will dispel all doubts, namely details of all the actual official approvals for the whole establishment process from the Ministry of Higher Education? Don't tell, show the black-and-white.

      Furthermore, where are the site layout, the building blueprints, the building models that politicians love to be photographed with, the details of the courses that will be taught, the teaching staff recruitment plan, the support staff recruitment plan, the student recruitment plan, the plan to achieve world-class-and-world-famous status, etc?

  3. Not acting lah! If it is merely acting, one does not need to bring in four pile driving equipment, just two pile driving equipment would be enough. Guess unbeliever will continue to deny fact .....

  6. If piling work has started, it is for what buildings? How many floors? Can you show us the building design? You don't just do the piling for something undecided

  7. I only hope Ah Jib be careful when he step down from the machine after officiating the ground breaking. remember Soon Kai, he fell on the ground, and most unfortunately, lost his election, years back. Ah Jib means total different.

    1. Interesting. Have not heard of this before. It was a pity that Soon Kai lost. In hind sight, I think Sibu's fortune would have been different had he not lost.

      The current Sibu General Hospital and the Sibu Airport at Oya Road were two important facilities added during S.K's tenure. Also, the Durin bridge, the Sibu Town Square and some main key roads in town were planned/added during his time.

      It is a fact that Sibu's development slowed down in comparison (especially the initial 2 to 3 years after Soon Kai lost), while developments in Samarahan, Miri, Bintulu and Kuching in comparison gathered pace.

      It was during those years after Soon Kai lost that Miri and Kuching succeeded to win both the federal govenment's approval and the state government's fund for setting up two Australian university branches: the Curtin Uni. in Miri and later Swinburne Uni. in Kuching, while Sibu lost out in the "bid".

      It boils down to political reality of influence/power/connection in the cabinets (decision makers) when there are competing towns (interests). As simple as that.

      And, "no point crying over spilt milk", more important to understand the consequential effect of our choice of local representatives.

      Interesting also, Ah Jib was then the education minister who pointed out that there is no point (reason) establishing 3 branches of Australian Universities in Sarawak alone within a short span of time as it would adversely affect student enrolment numbers.

      So, the bid by Sibu town then did not succeed, and the town had to wait for many more years, until two white knights concurred with our local minister and turned up in town one day in 2012 to announce something lesser ........ Still, this IS significant for the town's development.

      Talk is cheap. Let's see some commitment here. If this soon-to-be-world-class-and-world-famous university college does materialize, the "two white knights", the "local minister" and all their ra-ra sycophantic supporters would have no hesitation in vouching for its superior quality by enrolling their children, their children's children, etc. in it then?
