Photography: Sibu Photos

I quote Andrew Zimmern:

"Please be a traveler, not a tourist.Try new things, meet new people, and look beyond what's right in front of you. Those are the keys to understanding this amazing world we live in."

Every time I made a trip back to my hometown, Sibu, I see things in different perspective. I realized that I have been away from Sibu for a decade plus for now, staying in various cities around Malaysia.

Every single time. This town never fails to amaze me.

These are just some photos which I took the previous time I was back.

Still am very much fascinated by my small hometown after all these years.

Beautiful!!! You're really good!!! Catholic, are you? And from Tong Sang Road... My missus lived there before - her single days. I wonder if you know her - the father used to work as the dispenser at Dr. Wong Soon Kai's wife's clinic, Old Street...near the temple.
