Flood hits Tebedu

Recently, flood is becoming an annual affair for Sarawak. It scares me when it comes to January each year because, flood always affect my village. I remembered that five to ten years ago, we hardly have flood. Does this mean that our climate has changed? Does it has something to do with the world? Oh gosh!

The flood that caused me skipped work on Monday. The water blocked the way to my office.

Hari Sukan Negara 2015

Hi!

Here’s one thing for sure, whenever there’s a national celebration or new programmes launched, the spill over effect would surely fall onto schools. Not that I’m complaining but is it necessary? When I first heard about “Hari Sukan Negara” , I thought the government would be doing a grand celebration at Bukit Jalil Stadium and call all Malaysians athletes to receive their awards. That’s very thoughtful of our government but, never had I thought that a letter was sent to us, requiring all schools to organise a sport activity to celebrate it. Now instead of 5 days taking care the kids, it became 6 days, for that particular week. Hahaha! Nevermind, I enjoyed the event anyway. Here are some photos of Senamrobik that we did.

Mr Cyril had to be the sound technician on that day. He did a great job though!

Serian Bikes Festival 2015

This is going to be a really long post I’ve ever written and I guess only bikers would love to read about this entry in details. Hahaha!

It was an unexpected turn up for Serian Bikes Festival 2015 on 24th October. Counting the bikes from morning till late evening, the number could reach 1000 and they came all the way from Kuching, Samarahan, Sri Aman and Kalimantan.

That morning at 8am, I was a bit worried because only a few bikes appeared at the parking lot, however, by 10am the scenario changed; because more bikes came, filling up the parking lots with 19 motorcycle clubs participating in the event. They are Borneo Highland Choppers, Sarawak D2roopers, Bikers Nation, Santai Bikers, I AM LCians SerianCity, Lone Legion Brotherhood, Iron Tigers, Stout Riders, Sedarah, Rolling Thunder, Kaban Dingan, Chaya Bikers, Killer Breed MC, Bornshakers, FZ Crew Serian, Borneo Island Big Bikers Club, Choppers Garage, Tegar Bikers and Freelance Bikers.

The roaring sound of engines, either two or three strokes, was like music to our ears instead of just mindless noises. I witnessed the bikers laughed, smiled and shook hands or making weird gestures when meeting new and old friends. But one thing for sure, they had a great fun.

The highlight of the event was the country ride from Serian town to Kampung Mongkos homestay. We were fortunate that the first Serian Division Resident, Mr. Dahim Nadot was present at our event. He flagged off 3 different convoys, based on the types of motorcycles.

When we did a headcount, over 200 bikers joined the convoy. I believed that this ride had given them the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of nature along the Tebedu – Mongkos route for about 1 and half hours. To my surprised, not many of them had gone to Kampung Mongkos including those who live in Serian town.  Upon their arrival to Kampung Mongkos, they were served with delicious local delicacies such as chicken rice cooked in bamboo and bamboo shoot cook with coconut milk.

After lunch, all the bikers proceeded to the longhouse where they met with all the residents of Mongkos village and served with dance performances such as Belangi ngadap, Lengomia and I am for you. Meanwhile, other bikers who didn’t participate in the Country Ride, took part in other activities such as arm wrestling, slow ride and mini dart competition at the stadium.

We had a rock night. The bikers were entertained by a music band called The Gurus who brought popular nostalgic Malay and English rock songs. The event ended with Mr. Jesse Emmanuel, the president of the Royale Riders, presented 19 mementos to the participating motorcycle clubs as signs of appreciation and brotherhood among bikers.
