Back to Kuching - 15th Trip ( Part 3 )

Below are scenes of the Pan- Borneo Highway. These are typical of the only highway from Kuching to Bintulu. This highway has served Sarawak over the last 20 years with major repairs and reconstruction done within the same time. Most of the stretches are lonely with very little 'commercial agriculture' being done to the lands on both sides of the Highway except for stretches of Oil Palm holdings or estates. For a quarter of the journey the weather was fine. However for about three quarters of the journey the skies were cloudy and there were many isolated rains we encountered throughout the journey from Sibu to Kuching.

Back to Kuching - 15th Trip ( Part 2 )

Scenes along the way
( Above : At Sri Aman rest area)


Selangau is a growing small town mainly due to the fact that it is the gateway to Mukah town from the Pan Borneo Highway. The Selangau - Mukah road is now under reconstruction.

Selangau is a convenient stopover after travelling about an hour and a half from Bintulu, mainly to cool off the tyres and engine.






At At the Selangay rest area while fospa & fosma had their cup of tea and coffee break. I too had a good look of the place and enjoyed our snack of barbecued tuna done yesterday at Bintulu.



For most of the journey I didn't sleep. However at times I took to the arms of fosma for comfort.

Back to Kuching - 15th Trip ( Part 1 )


On Monday, our car got ready to leave the farm. With everything properly packed and secured to last a 10 hours journey to Kuching. This is our 15 th trip back Kuching after about a month stay in Bintulu. Fospa was adamant, " Inul, we need to be in Kuching by the 1st of July. You see I need to pay my fees for the second semester, get my textbook early and do reading quickly to pass up the assignment by 6th July. OK! Hope in! Here we go!"
Mama Daisy having a last look at our home, looking sad to leave Bintulu as normally she does.


" Inul, look here! You're on candid camera"

There was a heavy rain at our home last night and the climb out of the farm may prove tricky as the slopes are slippery. Wells's that fospa's job to negotiate. I would as normal scream the loudest when the journey gets rough and bumpy up the slope :00))
More stories of this journey later in Part 2 and 3. Stay tuned.
