City of Cats

Kuching, my hometown for the past 30 years. It is nicknamed "City of Cat", maybe it is full of cats in the past? I were not so sure about its name history, but I definitely did not see many stray cats around the city.

I believe photographs say more than words as simply, I cannot describe Kuching well, other than it is a beautiful, slow-pace and friendly city of its own.

Nice photograph after the rain has stopped. On right hand side, the famous Tua Pek Kong temple undergoing renovation work.



Old Main Bazaar, with new DUN Building (across Sarawak River) still work-in-progress



Matang Hill as the backdrop, providing such a serene view



One of the few cat statues around that are in the festive mood

Kuching looks like a great place. I've never been there but I had an uncle who lived there once long ago ... never did visit him and now he's shifted back to KL ...

Nick, Nyumix, Inspired Mum,

Kuching is indeed a very nice place (I am not boosting, ok!), a good place for vacation. You can visit the Sarawak Cultural Village, beaches, drive to Batang Ai, visit those wind cave in Lundu and of course try our fresh seafood.

I've been to Kuching once and I quite like it. The people are friendly, no stress, no traffic jam. Definately will make a trip there again with my kids.
