25 Mar 2011 – Back in SIN with more of Mother Nature’s Fury!

Thu: bye-bye to the Cat City’s beautiful sky. The Tiger took off 10mins late from KCH due to late incoming flight but caught up with time and arrived on time safe & sound back in SIN early yesterday evening. If not for these people’s kindness and gracious hospitality, the travels in Sarawak would have not been so educational and enjoyable.

Many thanks, especially to Lawrence & Mabel for putting me up, driving me all around KCH, all the yummy food and wines and the delicious farewell dinner@See Good****

Kuching: AnnChee, SiawChuan & family, Mr Lam of Lee Sang Goldsmith and Peter Wee of Anna Photo Studio.

Sarikei: Daniel Yiek’s info on:, Mr & Mrs Stephen Chen & family of King’s Inn, the Lam family of Kwong Hup Cafe and to all the people who took time to talk to me.

Sibu: Cathrine Eyut Ak Pasai & family and the people in Kampung Bawang Assan/Longhouse,  Kelly Grace & Wesley Malacca.

Elizabeth Taylor (79), the legendary actress famed for her beauty, her charitable endeavors and her many marriages. National Velvet is a classical and even as a child watching her then, she was already absolutely beautiful and her beauty continued until yesterday. May she now rest in peace. Condolences to her family

Another earthquake and this one is in Myanmar near the Thai border around the Golden Triangle. To the people in that area where there is much poverty, my prayers and thoughts go out to them.

At least 75 people were killed and dozens of buildings destroyed. Tremors spread as far away as Bangkok, almost 800km from the epicentre, Hanoi and parts of China during the earthquake on Thursday, which the US Geological Survey (USGS) measured at magnitude 6.8.

Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty – they merely move it from their faces into their hearts – Martin Buxbaum
