Space-age Slide

At the same park/playground as in yesterday’s photo – Bulatan Park (forgot to mention that yesterday), there is this really awesome looking slide.

Look at it! It’s like a UFO. Made me wish I was small enough to play on it.

Lion’s Slide

I shot this at a children’s playground at one of our parks today.

I was quite amused – it seemed strange to have a giant statue of a lion stand guard over a kid’s slide.

Miri’s beaches have very shallow slopes and the current just off the shore can be quite strong. It makes for nice walks on the beach where you can walk with your feet dipped in the water, but not so nice for certain water-sports where you can’t wear a life jacket.

I really liked this photo with the two birds and the two kids – both hanging out and walking through the water.

Forty Winks in the Sky

These two guys were taking a nap on the same observatory platform shown on October 9, 2007. As pictured, the platform is not just good for views, but also apparently a neat place to grab 40 winks.

Miri Airport

This is a sister photo of Miri Airport nightshot posted on October 6, 2007. In the photo is the Sarawak flag (yellow, black, and red) as well as the Malaysian flag (yellow, blue with red/white stripes). I’m not quite sure what the third flag is.

Photo was contributed by JY.

Taman Awam Miri (Miri Public Park)

Was a tad preoccupied this past couple of days hence the lack of updates.

Taman Awam (one of Miri’s parks) has several observatory decks which overlooks part of Miri. Each observatory deck is connected by several suspension bridges for people to walk on.
Unfortunately, because of a hill, this deck doesn’t overlook the actual city-centre. Still, you make do with what you got. Beyond this observatory platform, there are mostly residential areas with a few shoplots.

Miri Airport

This is Miri’s airport shot at night. The airport is among the busiest in Malaysia and it is a main hub for many of Sarawak’s rural air routes.

Just a few months ago, Malaysia Airlines started a route between Miri and Hong Kong (with a transit at Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, Malaysia). This, I think, is the furthest route connecting to Miri thus far.
