Marvellous Miri!

Miri will always have a special place in my heart. When I first joined the judiciary back in 1996, my first posting was to the city of Miri, Sarawak as a magistrate. Loved the placed instantly. Laidback, fairly clean and with a beach to boot, the only thing I didn’t like was the fact it was too damn far, and expensive, to balik kampong. Hey, Tony Fernandes was still selling CDs then, ok?

After close to 2 years in Miri, I got a transfer back to KL. Since then I’ve been back there a couple of times while I was still in the Judiciary. The last time was probably back in 2000.

And two weeks ago, I was back there, this time for my new baby, GUA.COM.MY. And it was awesome. It’s still hot as hell, but Miri remains the cool place I left some 10 years ago.


Madli's was the first ever restaurant in Miri I had dinner at.
It's still there, and still serving satay... in the morning!

Of course I just had to have my Mee Kolok. After 7 bloody years!
The city centre's awesomely clean...


And the skyline's spectacular, as usual
gua.com.my
Whoever runs the city SHOULDN'T receive a broom...


That's Mega Hotel. The "shopping complex"'s pretty dead though


The Tamu's still standing proud.
This is where you go for everything and anything...


Was good to see old buildings spruced up

This is the place I used to go for breakfast every other day. At 8.30 sharp, 2 sexy ladies who work at the salon would walk by. Everyone would just stare. Or drool. Or both...


But to my horror, the old magistrate's court I used to work at has been torn down!!!
They paved paradise to put up a parking lot!!!


Miri's a city with a thousand Inns.
You can find one in every corner of the freakin' place...

Went to have some nice seafood at this place called Yi Hak Hai.
Go ahead, laugh. It's funny


The midi vege. Yummy


Can't remember what it's called, but it's absolutely gorgeous...

At the humble GUA booth...
gua.com.my
A couple of old colleagues also popped by!

And yes, Air Supply and Sugar Bun are still big around here! : )
