Miri in Sarawak is a beautiful city. On 5 July 2013, I returned to the city. I found this billboard greeting travellers to the city, while exiting Miri Airport (Airport code MYY). It was a good feeling to be welcomed in the foreign place. Foreign in the sense that you must go thru immigration checkpoint once you landed in the Miri airport, eventhough you are Malaysian from KL or from other states within Malaysia.
I sure missed few things about Miri, one of them is nasi lalapan, others being road condition going out of city and its nearness to Brunei, which allows you to travel to the small wealthy kingdom with ease. I must say if there is two journeys I must undertake in Borneo, it would be Kuching-Pontianak and Sibu-Kapit. Well, I will return this coming Malaysia Day to Miri.
By the way, one simple quiz to test your Malaysia knowledge; how many hours it takes for a bus ride from Sibu to Kapit?
