A Day Out at Kuching Waterfront 8 Jun 2009

Kuching Waterfront 09

It was the same day that we visited Shang Ti Temple.

Actually, it was the day that four of us went to the cinema and watch a movie in Kuching. I can’t recall what movie is it already. It seems to be our ‘traditions’ already, watch a movie once a year and it will be at Kuching. Reason being, it is the only time that we have time together, relaxing watching and enjoying the movie; other reason, also not so much crowds because it will be always a working day and less infections for both babies. Normally, we will take a stroll at the waterfront before we go in to the cinema.

The Waterfront has of course undergone several transformations since the 19th century – from a small settlement with a few atop buildings, to a busy port with warehouses and wharves, to the landscaped riverside walk it is today. The Waterfront is now also home to modern sculpture, an open-air theatre and a musical fountain. The ferries and sampans park along the river.

In days gone by the river was the city’s main highway. The river still retains its importance and picturesque charm in the modern era. Present day life is still concentrated on the waterfront. The new building which will caught your eyes will be the new Dewan Undangan Negeri which just completed last year.

From Kuching’s humble, ancient origins, to its status as a modern city. No visit to Kuching would be complete without a stroll on the modern esplanade, or to sit, relax and experience a Sarawakian sunset.
