Have you ever been to the Nyelong River after sunset? Besides 1 or 2 kopitiam (coffeeshops), there's another neat night sight - the ferry crossing. What time does the ferry stop operating at night? Is it 24 hours x 7 days? If you arrive late after the last ferry, you have to make a U-turn?!! Have you ever encountered a tide so high that your car have to drive through the water after the ramp? A reader captured this unusual sight.
With the brightly lit Nyelong River esplanade, now you have another reason to come here at night - makan angin (leisure). Sarikei is relatively crime free compared to other cities. What time does the lights turn off at night? More importantly, what time does the dua puluh sen (20 cents) floral toilet close? Free pee, anyone?
And now for the video of the high tide. Double click to play. Beware of the salty water - wash your car after this ride. Wet, wet, wet!
