long the way, you can observe many longhouses. With easy access to towns, most of them along the road have lost the traditional charm and have upgraded with a mixture of brick walls, zinc roof and TV antennae. If you step inside a family bilik (room), modern sofa welcomes you. To experience a rustic longhouse, you have to venture deeper away from the main roads. Stay tuned for another post.

Kuching-Sarikei 2006 - Canopy
This interesting stretch of road has trees lined up on both sides with branches that will eventually cross each other from both sides of the road to provide a shady canopy. The question is who will prune them so that canopy will be high enough for the taller vehicles to pass.

After passing Jakar transit town at 7th mile, you will get this warm, fuzzy feeling. It's home, sweet home. You can take a person out of Sarikei but you can not take Sarikei out of the person.
