If you have the chance to go around and observe the places in Kuching, you will find the splendor and beauty in the landscape. Kuching sky is always cloudy, and it rains very often here. Sunsets in Kuching are spectacular. Good shots like these are taken at high rise buildings like Saberkas and the Medan Pelita.

Well, after all, Kuching is my home. I would never feel more belonged at other places than in Kuching. I grew up here, I had my best of times and worst of times all in Kuching.
