Photographer's Note

Not everyone will agree but I think it is often the historical architecture that gives a particular town or City its flavour or unique characteristics which reflect its origin.

In Kuching, there are still many of such buildings which exhibit its colonial influence, although some were constructed after the colonial period. But bit by bit, the charming old town is going through an urban metamorphosis whereby the old buildings are slowly being demolished and replaced by the new ones which only concern about its utilitarian needs. I believe this part of the town will look very different in the next few decades.

In this photo, beside the one in the FG, the rest in the row have been transformed beyond recognition. This is usually a busy street but not quite today as it was still early in the morning. Opposite these shop is a popular old foodcourt where you can savor the city's best Chinese dim sum to go with chilled soya bean milk. The foodcourt opens 24 hours, and you wont be disappointed if you were to show up at 3 or 4am.
