Sibu News : TV programme on Sibu
Great news to those who are interested in Sibu : Sibu will be featured in an ASTRO- TV programme. A TV company from West Malaysia has just completed their project filming on Sibu and its people. This is different from the TV programme which was made sometime ago on Foochow dialect (as spoken in Sibu).
The programme will be aired in November . Starting 29/11 and ending just before Chinese New Year the programme called Story of East Malaysia has been timed at 9 p.m. on AEC. Hope my readers will take note of it and enjoy the unique programme.
Sibu wharves (third photo) are very interesting places to watch. Here different races work together and a smattering of languages can be heard: local Malay- Iban- Foochow- Hokkien - all mixed up but the people all lend a hand. Here you see pure muscles of mixed races trying to move a tank of gasoline unto a "River Supermarket".
The group (including my friend Meng Lei) were treated to a seafood lunch at Blue Splendour Sibu by Datuk Tiong Kiong King a local business man.
Look out at this space if you are interested in the details....Coming Soon.
