Trip to Bintulu

After spending three weeks in Kuching over the Gawai holiday, I decided to journey back to Bintulu on Sunday, 15 June'08. By around lunch time we arrived the town of Sri Aman. Every visitor to this town will never miss noticing this iconic sculpture of two white doves. They speak volumes of an era when Sarawak was terrorised by the communists. It was in this town that the communists laid down their arms and called off their struggle to set up communism in Sarawak. For that matter this town was renamed 'Sri Aman' ( meaning 'peace' in Malay). Previous to that, the town was known as 'Simanggang'.
