CM at the Kampung Datuk fire site 首長巡視甘幫拿督火災災場

the problem after the Kampung Datuk fire, is about re-development.
it is given to understand that, present Kampung Datuk is going to be developed into commercial center. that is doubtless.

where to resettle all the residents of Kampung Datuk?

a few options:
1) Sibu Jaya: many flats vacant, no occupants. enough facilities to facilitate the need of mass resettlement.
people should support this arrangement, because Sibu Jaya is an ideal satellite town, only 25km from Sibu.

2) Rantau Panjang: there are quite a few flats with not much occupants, right at the back of the road, within the shipyard boundary. more houses and commercial shops are to be develop in the future. another development area for Sibu. this place is about 20km from Sibu Town.

3) Kemuyan area: over 18km away from Sibu, there is youth training center, a secondary school, WTK development residential houses, and rubbish dump site nearby. same road to the golf field, but a few km behind it. this is another option to resettle the Kampung people.

what about the Kampung Datuk Baru Resettlement Scheme?

this place is right at the back of Delta Housing Estate, leading to the Malay Kampungs. the earth filling for the place started on May 3, 2013, to be completed by November 2, 2013. but in actual fact, the earth filling is done already, just within less than 2 months time.
So, what's next? to build houses or shops buildings?

the resettlemnet work is carried up by Lembaga Pembangunan dan Lindungan Tanah ( Land Consolidation and Development Authority). will this place be turned into residential area, or another commercial project?
it is heard that, the developer has change heart, instead of building residential houses, it will instead build shop buildings. obviously, this needs to be confirmed.

火劫後,甘幫拿督重新發展課題,受到廣泛關注.
目前,災黎將遷居詩巫再也衛星鎮,蘭島邦江造船工業區.烏也路高爾球場背後的肯盟央發展區也將是未來搬遷甘幫居民的一個選擇.
至於德大住宅區背後的新甘幫拿督重植區,填土工程已完成.未來是建造屋子還是商店,仍是未知數.看來,以後者可能性較高.

long house folks in Daro, baptism in a stream 拉老長屋居民小溪洗禮

Pastors from South Korea Methodist Church, performing baptism for long house folks of Rumah Juing, in the small stream of Sungai Kelai, Daro, which is about an hour drive from Sibu, crossing the estuary of a river at the South China Sea.
the baptism was performed on May 30, 2013, about 3 weeks back.

韓國牧師為女信徒行浸水洗禮.
眾多長屋壯漢排隊,等待下水接受洗禮.
 大家一起在小溪進行洗禮.這是砂拉越長屋最壯觀的浸水洗禮.
主持這項浸水洗禮的,是韓國衛理公會牧師.

本地很難見到的基督教洗禮方式--浸水洗禮.
這項洗禮,是於2013年5月30日舉行.
這是一項基督教的儀式,每一個成為基督徒的,都要接受以水滴在額頭,或甚至浸在水里,接受洗禮儀式.
更為特別的是,這是一整座長屋居民都接受基督教,並且長屋居民,老老少少百多人,一起在牧師主持下,在小溪里接受洗禮,確是一項非常壯觀的儀式.
29戶居民的魯瑪朱因(Rumah Juing),座落在拉老(Daro)的宋溪格萊(Sungai Kelai).
要去到這座長屋,主要是靠陸路.已有陸路由丹章瑪尼大道通向拉老鄉區.在橫過一條巴丹巴羅交叉河口(Batang Paloh)的汽車渡輪後,10分鐘便可抵達該長屋.
這一帶是以馬蘭諾居民為主.伊班長屋据稱只有一座.不過,鄰近還有其他長屋區.
來自韓國首爾,一間衛理公會以馬內利堂的牧師和會友20多人,在該堂主理牧師金言國的帶領下,前往這座長屋拜訪,與長屋居民進行文化交流,同時宣揚基督教.有關訪問,是在另一名韓國牧師申正采安排下進行.
百多名長屋居民,在傍晚時分,老老少少,最小的只是抱在手中的嬰兒,年長的也有老年人,排隊在長屋旁邊的一條宋溪格萊(Sungai Kelai)小溪,接受了整個人浸入水中的洗禮儀式.
整個洗禮維持了約半個鐘頭.這也是這一群訪客這趟長屋訪問的最主要節目.在歌聲和頌讚中,一名一名接受洗禮者,踏入溪水中,接受了基督教,成為一名基督教徒.
儀式過後,長屋居民以豐盛佳餚款待訪客.適逢達雅佳節,散居各處的居民都返回長屋過節,因此,大家都在一片洋溢溫馨的氣氛中,享受一頓最美好的聚會.尤其是燒烤豬肉,更是桌上的上等美食.

Hawaii Beach of Miri 美里的夏威夷海灘

why called "Hawaii Beach"? because of coconut trees. Malaysia has lots of coconut trees, so called "Hawaiisia"? NO, all are tropical countries, all have coconuts, they are famous, so are us!! 因為有椰子樹,所以叫夏威夷海灘.怪怪的,大家都是熱帶地區,也遍佈椰樹,很多椰水喝.美里也是很著名,怎麼椰子會輸他們的.....
