Cleanliness

This is certainly something to look forward to.

Food outlet

If only the Miri City Council (MCC) list out the various food outlet that falls into this two categories in their website, it surely will help us to quickly decide where to eat.

As of this morning, I am still at my regular coffeeshop that do not have ranking! I asked the owner on this issue and she just answer me, “tengok saja lah” or just wait and see.

I suggest MCC should admend their bylaws to include this ratings on the signboard. This will help the public to see and decide clearly where to dine with food serve before we even enter the premises.

On the other hand, MCC should look into the attitude of their contractors, especially those that involve with rubbish disposal. I was surprised with how the contractor handle our rubbish bin. A check at Soon Hup Garden, near Taman Tunku, found 18 out of over twenty rubbish bin have their lid broken due to manhandling during the disposal to the truck.

Those circled have their lid broken.

The question now is who should replace this rubbish bin? Randomly, the bin is sold at RM250.00 in Miri.

Petronas Science Museum

The PETRONAS Science Museum is getting popular among tourist coming to Miri Resort City and with the current DinoTrek, it is sure a hit among young children wishing to learn about the prehistoric era.

However, with the Visit Malaysia Year 2007 just around the corner, it is sad to note that MCC and PETRONAS failed to equip the road leading to the museum with better infrastructure regardless of Miri being the earliest oil producing town in Malaysia. Its a big contrast when compared to the PETRONAS Twin Tower in Kuala Lumpur.

Road to the Science Museum

The road is narrow and lack safety railings. It is not lighted at night despite the sub-station being located down the hill which is less than a kilometer away. Even the road to Kampung Baru in Kuala Lumpur is 10 times better than this. Heii… without the mineral resources your Twin Tower will not be there!

On the brighter side, below is the breath-taking view of Lambir Hills from Kampung Haji Wahed.

And Miri Resort City view with Mega Hotel (we term it as the Golfers’ Inn) in the middle.

I have no complain but MCC should be talking to PETRONAS on the improvement to the road, street lightings and safety aspect to the museum. And, that should be done fast for Mirian to be ready to open thier arms to the tourist come 1st January 2007.

And, heiiii… even the Penans are better equipped with hi-tech satellite maps to assist them in their blockage in upper Baram!

Learn from the Penan if MCC is to be the gateway to Northern Sarawak.
