The Last Chimney Standing in Sibu


This house along Pedada Road might not be around for very long. Plans are already in the pipe line for demolition and urban development.

For many people who are over 30 from Sibu they might remember the old Foochow wood stoves which require a chimney.  This is probably the last one left in Sibu.

A closeup of the wood stove chimney. Soon it will be a thing of the past. In fact many people do not know what this is now.

Good bye Foochow wood stove.....good bye chimneys....and good bye big kualis......
