The photo shown here was taken from a hill where the new Petroleum Musem (Grand Old Lady) is situated. One can see the coastal part of Miri, facing the South China Sea. From atop of the hill one can also view the whole city of Miri, the plain and flat area, the hilly part of Lambir Hill (the waterfall) etc. At night time the panoramic is more romantic plus the breezy wind. I really hope and pray that I will enjoy and appreciate my stay in Miri while developing my career. Miri - not bad at all as compared to what I previously thought before moving in

Blogging From Miri
This is my first ever posting to the blog from Miri, Sarawak, Northern Borneo. I've been here for weeks now (and I'm going to live here for.....well.....I myself dont know for how long!!!). I kinda enjoy myself in this lively and interesting city. There are so much thing to say and describe about Miri. My family and friends really worried and sceptical about me moving to Miri, so much unpleasant stories and 'devilish' incidentals have been told and relates. I took it as a challenge in life and career (I always welcome challenges anyway). I've met a few nice people here, especially Yahya who has been very helpful in getting me around to familiarize myself with the surrounding and the 'Dos' and 'Donts'. Now I'm quite familiar with the road in Miri city, the 'makan' places especially my favourite Nasi Lemak restaurant (the sambal and rendang is superb!), the gardens/parks, the shopping malls etc.
