Sibu Borneo Culture Festival 2009


The Borneo Cultural Festival which is held every year in Sibu town is back again from 3 July to 11 July 2009. Normally I wouldn't stick by because the events were held later in the evening, but this time I decide to hangout around. Here is my coverage of the festival on Sunday 5 July 2009.


I arrive at the Wisma Sanyan around 2pm, since there is nothing to see at that time I decide to head to King Cinema to see The Transformer "Revenge Of The Fallen" again for the second time to kill time. At that time they are rehearsing for the night event, you know The Prime Minster is coming so everything has to be prefect.


Here is the Chinese section food place, a lot of yummy food to try.


Some opening by the VIPs

The Visitor Information Centre located nearby the Chinese community area.

Inside got free internet access.


Sibu Art Association held an art and photography exhibition at the sheltered car park area.


Here is some of the art and photos display there.
