Sarikei Repok Rd 2006 - Block 2. Only 1 shop has the original full length windows
The 1st block has the most narrowly spaced pillars of all blocks in Sarikei. The unique design of the balcony still exists today. The 1st shop is now a kopi tiam & a lottery shop. Between the 1st and 2nd block is an alley where a lady used to sell sugar cane juice in the 70's. The sugar cane was squashed thru a machine right on the spot. People queued up to take away iced sugar cane juice drinks in plastic bags.
The 2nd block has classic full length window designs. All, except the middle shop, have not retained the designs. There goes our heritage! The balcony of the 2nd block used to house Mei Na photo studio. Below the balcony was a kopi tiam which still exists today. Outside the kopi tiam, on a pillar, was a movie board of the 3rd mile cinema, Ta Kwang. Can someone solve the mystery of the shed in the middle of Repok Road? Is this a wet market, a goods warehouse, a police station or a taxi stand?
