Nang Chong Stories : Plank Walks

Lovely scenes from Lau Pang Sing Jetty and the Nang Chong Cooperative....



Common plank walk in Nang Chong...Man's challenge and response  in Sarawak.....This is strong enough for  a good Honda Motorcycle and lots of bicycles...


Google map of the small stream I had to cross from my grandmother's house in Nang Chong to buy stuff at the Nang Chong Cooperative. The Cooperative was washed away by the erosion..and today a long plankwalk gpes acrpss tje stream where originally there was a good bridge..and right to the Wong's home at the corner at the top on the right hand corner. Cars can drive right up to the house in the two houses at the top. The house with the red roof belongs to the Ling family. The Hook Ming Church is at the bottom of the aerial photo in blue.










wood debris on both sides of the plankwalk....at high tide - when we visited the  Wongs.
Lovely view from the plank walk.
a beautiful mangrove tree protecting the banks of the river.

So the jetty is named after the school teacher from sacred Heart chinese school in sibu....those plank walk was so common in those days in Sibu cos of the floods and the swampy land

They have the same name. This jetty was named after my uncle. Yes..the plankwalks are so typical in the Rajang Basin.
